The science the U.N. has is self-serving and their solution is about economics. The deniers use science to compete against U.N. computer models that don't include the information that has been found by them. BTW don't you care about increasing energy costs on the poor? I thought leftists care about the poor. Or do you want that to be subsidized as well? Also no one believes that those implementing cap and trade will do anything other than make money off of it and increase their standard of living at the expense of everyone else. Maybe it doesn't bother you but it bothers me.

What's wrong with different areas of the world harvesting different forms that are indigenous to the areas? It's going to be a slow process of course, but we've been dragging our feet long enough. If we all thought like you we'd drag them for another 100 years or so...
It's not a slow process it's a limited process. I live in Canada and we don't get enough sun like in PARTS of Australia. Some places don't get enough wind for windmills. What can be exploited will be but hardly enough to reduce C02 emissions. Shutting down coal plants is irresponsible because none of these new technologies can replace them. Australia doesn't rely mainly on solar power so your point is mute. This why I was happy Obama appears to be making pro-nuclear comments because at least there is a track record with nuclear. Again it's not enough to replace coal, oil and natural gas but can help if enough are built.

Wow, three posts and not ONE actually addresses the point. I quit you.

No, it's a slow process. There are still forms of energy that we haven't found yet, so how can it be limited? And no where did I say Austrailia relies mainly on solar. Your arguments just flat out suck, because you can NEVER respond to the point, you always talk around the subject and then make up the oppositions stance as you go.

Yeah, I'm done.
