What chemicals have you poured into the atmosphere today?

Is that a serious question?

Please tell me it's not a serious question.

Yes, a serious question.

Wanna answer?

Do the cars we drive, the factories we use, or the cigarettes we smoke not emit chemicals and gasses into the atmosphere?

You are aware of this correct?

Because our free will doesn't have consequences right? So our free will isn't really free will...

That's right, you won't answer that question.

Oh, I'm not worried. You are the personification of a troll. This will be my last time acknowledging a post of yours. From now on I'll just sit back and have a good chuckle at whatever nonsense you post, then go outside to listen to the singsong of lovely birds.

Thanks.

It's really silly to post anything about birds singing.

See iron horse, the simplist question was asked of you and you ignored it.

You are not here to engage.

Without fossil fuels and industrialization most of us wouldn't be alive right now to complain. If a new technology arises that can actually keep our standard of living or (heaven forfend) increase it, most everyone would be on board.

Stagflation is more noxious to humans than CO2.

This is stating the obvious, but what does it take to find this innovation?

When you look at the rate of improvements in certain technologies it's obvious(at least to me) that we are lazy in some areas. Transportation energy being one that we have rested on our laurels for far too long.

I'd rather we find the money in the budgets we have for research and development (even if we have to trim other programs) than tacking on a carbon tax on top of the current taxes we have. I don't see success in Europe and CO2 is increasing despite these taxes.
