Local Government & Global Warming
Albemarle County and the City of Charlottesville have adopted policies and programs specifically for the purpose of reducing carbide dioxide emissions to the atmosphere.
If a measure saves the taxpayer money, that is a good thing.
If a measure costs more than an alternative, and is done simply to reduce carbide dioxide emissions, that is a terrible thing, because...
Man-made global warming is more hysteria than science.
will destroy our economy...and have no benefit! Since energy goes into everything we buy, this is going to raise the price of everything substantially. Also, we are already driving
industry out of this country due to ridiculous taxation and
regulation. This will be the final nail in the coffin.
Would you put a factory here and deal with this nonsense? What
will happen when there are no American manufacturers left?

have been times when the earth was much warmer than it is
now. We are still coming out of an "ice age", and no one is exactly sure what causes ice ages. Every
10,000+ years or so huge glaciers twice the height of the Empire State
Building descend as far south as Alabama. It is going to get a
lot colder, and mankind cannot stop it.
A good friend said he first realized "man-made global warming" was nonsense when he
visited Turkey around 1987 and was looking down over a very steep
cliff. Where he was standing used to be a seaport. So if
the sea level rises that much, it will be where it used to be.
you plot solar activity and Earth temperature on the same graph, you
see a direct correlation, unlike the chart shown over and over again in
the media that looks like a correlation between temperature and carbon dioxide at first glance, but actually
shows the bulk of the warming occurring before the CO2 increases very
Mars and other planets had been getting warmer in recent years. There are few SUVs there.
contribution to a "greenhouse effect" of warming (if it is really
happening) could only be very tiny. By far, the largest
contributor to a greenhouse effect is water vapor. It will be
interesting to see the legislature pass laws against water vapor.
the most powerful computer models cannot accurately predict the awesome
and fluctuating power of nature. The computer models used to
predict our impending doom are so full of fudge factors, they are
laughable. Their core assumptions are seriously flawed and they have been wrong over and over again. This
is junk science. One day during a recent winter, the weather
report said it was going to snow, and we didn't see even a
flurry. They can't predict what will happen in 24 hours. It
seems silly to think they can predict what will happen in twenty/thirty
Twenty/thirty years ago these same geniuses
were clamoring that something needed to be done about "global
cooling". We were all going to freeze to death and massive
government intervention was absolutely necessary. It is
predictable that if we now suddenly experience 20 years of cooling,
they will push for mandated burning of fossil fuels. But it won't
help! There are now predictions of 10-20 years of cooling... and
the line is "Mother Earth is giving us more time to deal with global
warming." This is insanity!
people (educated in government-run schools) have
forgotten that carbon dioxide is not a dangerous chemical as is now
reported, it is plant food. Plants flourish in an environment
with higher ppm carbon dioxide. They take it in and emit
oxygen. One of mankind's gifts to the Earth is that we are taking
the carbon hidden deep below the surface and bringing it up here where
plants can enjoy it. One might say that environmentalists,
contrary to popular perception, therefore actually hate trees,
otherwise why would they think even for a second to reduce the
of fossil fuels? The environmentalist movement has
been hijacked by people with a different agenda. They have made
it no secret that they want to chop down the United States of
America and that this is a precursor to what they truly desire: one

is an environmentalist who set out to research those scientists (whom
he first believed to be few) opposed to the global warming theory.
What he found shocked him. Some of the most preeminent
scientists in the world have disproved it! He now believes global
warming is a low, low priority, and he points out the Kyoto Treaty is
actually destroying rainforests.
