Bruce Turner says climate change is primarily an invention of the left.
Isn't it remarkable how fast we forget! The good Lord, through the use of fossil fuels, brought us out of the Stone Age to the high-tech age. Think how rapidly we progressed from the use of horses to rocketing to the moon; thanks to fossil fuels.
The new left wants to stop the use of fossil fuels. Because of CO2 emissions, global warming within a short period of time will destroy our way of life. According to the left, we have approximately 12 years to stop the use of fossil fuels. This belief will cause our economy to collapse.
Recently while vacationing in Hawaii I observed lots of electrical windmills. Thanks to Obama, the island's appearance have been greatly diminished with windmills. Perhaps we could cover the remaining space with solar panels.
I am 81 years old and have had a wonderful life. Self-reliance, allowed me to use my brain for accomplishment and entertainment. While in college I majored in geology. Some of my courses involve glacial geology. I recall Prof. Chapman discussing the impact of 4 to 6 major ice ages.
We traveled to the top of Mount Washington, the highest peak in the Appalachian Mountains, and Prof. Chapman would discuss the striations across the granite and that the ice extended one-mile high above the top of the mountain. He explained how between four and six major ice caps had extended across the North American continent. The encroachment and recession of these icecaps created many of the surface features we enjoy today.
My question is what made the icecaps retreat: Global warming?
Our planet will go through its own lifecycle and no matter what efforts man makes. It will look much like other heavenly bodies we have visited, such as Mars and the moon. If the left has any practical solutions to the problems facing our world, I wish they would say what they were.
Today the Democrat politicians are pushing for the return of socialism. As you know, nothing in this world is free. We have a $22 trillion debt, thanks mainly to Obama, which we should start to diminish. Both the Republicans and Democrats are at fault and should be required to spend only the revenue we take in each year.
