Let's not forget about all the birds that windwills kill.  The Audubon Society estimated that 328,000 birds were killed by windmills in North America in 2016.

I still think you believe man is contributing to global warming.  If not, I believe you would tell the readers that you don't.  There can be no debate until a stance is indicated.  That's rule number one.

Feel free to ignore the dips on the left.  They have zero answers. 

Does not matter wether man is contributing or not.  It is fine to assume man is contributing.  Besides everyone wants to clean up the environment. 

Does that mean we all have to adopt and overreaching socialistic system of government and talk of eliminating cow farting, air travel, the automobile, and rebuild all of our buildings?  Of course it does not, one would have to go full retard to make that leap of stupidity.  

Remember America is the main country to drop out of the Paris climate accord.  Meanwhile America has also be the main country to drop in CO2 and other emissions.  Not small drops, but significant drops.  Way ahead of all the other countries in the world.   

These drops are brought by innovative well engineered economical products launched using investor capitol.  These products are sold to consumers that are willing to switch to them as they are better, and reasonably priced. 

This is what led the world in the manufacturing revolution, the space revolution, the computer/tech revolution.   It will always produce the best and brightest products and solutions.

UWA - you are correct. The issue is not weather climate change is man-made or not.  I'm a conservative and I care about the Earth.  The issue is that the leftists are using climate change as a ruse to implement wealth redistribution schemes that would obviously never fly if they just called it what it is.

Exactly.  

If it worked so great they would not have to disguise it in a lie.

Of course it is.  If it's not man made, there's nothing we can do.  If you agree man is contributing to global warming, then you can agree to discuss solutions to the problem.

There are numerous economically viable solutions already underway. 

We won't be adopting socialism to solve this problem. 
We won't be plugging up cows arsses to solve this problem. 
We won't be turning vegetarian to solve this problem. 
We won't be killing off all of the air travel industry to solve this problem. 
We won't be killing off all car travel to solve this problem. 
We won't be tearing down every building in the US and rebuilding it some insane green way to solve this problem. 
We won't be completely wasting $77B on an obviously worthless bullet train to no where. 
We won't be wasting billions to cronie capital companies like Solendra, that are obviously going to fail. 
We won't be killing off our steel industry to solve this problem.
We won't be turning our economy back to a 1200AD substance style living. 
We won't be turning our national determination over to the French, the UN or any other international governance group.  They largely hate America and butthurt jealous asswipes. 

We should be continuing the wind power.  While I have not researched the numbers above for windmills, I think overall they are net productive.  Most of our steel is remelt, so that does not consume mass amounts of coal coke.  Wind Power should go up by several factors. 

Shorter term we should continue to build out our LNG/NG infrastructure.  This is a fuel that immediately available, has acceptable energy densities, is reasonable replacement for much of the diesel long haul and short haul trucks, trains, and service (bus, trash trucks, etc) fleets. 

We should be looking hydro electric dams more seriously, with an eye to fish ladders and routes around the dams for species habitat. 

We should take a second look at fission nuclear.  The lefty panic over nuclear was stupid and kept a perfectly great energy source from achieving its full potential. 

We should be investing heavily in longer term battery storage solutions.  As battery energy density does up it allows us to take other fuels off of the road. 

We should be investing heavily in hydrogen as a fuel alternative. Both in common combustion engines and in fuel cell technologies. 

We should be investing heavily in Fusion.  Longer term, there is no better way to conceive of our power needs. 

We should continue to invest heavily in Solar.  Getting the efficiency up.  Getting the manufacturing cost down.  

Certainly there will be other innovations that come along.  Luckily we live in the country that has the absolute greatest track record in being able to invent, and bring to market the best products in the world.  

If others have ideas to discuss, just let us know your ideas.

The first step was to agree man is contributing to global warming.  It's not a hoax.  The subsequent steps will be more difficult to agree upon.

Here is an analogy, though I don't think any on the left will understand.



If I sight in a rifle and I hit exactly 1" to the right it will be off 5" @ 500yds, and 10" @ 1000yds, and almost 18" at a mile. If you miscalculate the wind speed at even 1mph, that variable throws the whole equation out the window.

Climate projections are built on long range models, one small miscalculated variable, throws the projection way out of the norms. We have seen how these projections over decades have not came anywhere close to being correct. We have been through the threat of "Nuclear Winter", then "Global Warming" and now because those fell apart we are facing "Climate Change". Sorry, but the climate has been changing since the dawn of time, and this is just a new buzz word to CYA because the others couldn't hold up under scrutiny.

Man was just not around to document the previous catastrophic climate swings and disasters of the distant past.

I think the idea is to slow down the steady destruction of the planet. I know that's a big, forward-thinking idea for people with small
minds to comprehend, but it is, well, important. The planet is warming rather rapidly, and action on multiple fronts is needed. 

The problem with conservatives/Republicans is that they never have any interest in solving problems. Oh, I'm sorry, I was mistaken--they ARE very determined to give additional breaks to the wealthy and huge corporations, but beyond that, no interest in improving life for anybody or everybody. Gun violence, climate change, health care, poverty, worker pay, etc., etc.--they pretend they are not problems and spend lots of energy and money attacking Democratic ideas--and usually deceitfully-- to tackle problems. That's the essence of conservatism--doing nothing because they don't like government. No forward thinking. Well, we can see where that has gotten the United States--rising poverty and income inequality, lower standards of living, a //falling// life expectancy, etc. But conservatives will throw up a few more ugly strip malls and start wars--that they DO like doing. Look at health care: always the fraudulent hysteria about Democratic ideas, and remind me what the GOP has done to fix our major health-care issues? How about a big fat nothing--which is standard with corrupt Republicans. Also, when all you conservative pumpkin-heads are on Medicare and it is keeping you from living on the street, thank socialism. Conservative pols--and televangelists-- know that all they need do is throw out a few of their favorite buzzwords--slogans they've been using for decades--and the rubes will get all wound up.

Let's stay a bit focused.  You seem to get a bit emotional, then it is spin in a million directions, randomly out of control, and then veer fully off the rails.  Not sure how that is going to get you anywhere.  

Looking at Climate change. 

Q: Which country has done more to reduce their CO2 emissions (the latest climate impacting boogey man) while growing their economic impact? 
A: America, the heavy adoption of wind, solar, prius style hyrids, tesla all electrics, conversion of fleets, like WMI, to lng, composting, recycling, reductions in coal.  These have all taken significant capital investments, the likes of which only a strong capital based system can invest.  Which is why they are working, because they are economical.  

Q: Do the socialist countries do better at climate change?  
A: Absolutely not.  Most European socialist are struggling to keep a level emissions output while the economies are stalled or shrinking.  China, the largest most centrally planned most overbearing government the planet is growing emissions at an astronomical rate. 

It is not that we do not care about the environment.  Everyone cares about the environment.  We just choose to ignore socialists that demand that we adopt socialism to address our environmental challenges, when all the evidence indicates that would be exactly the wrong way to go.

Indeed the ultimate outcome for socialism, right up until it all collapses.
