I love living in Washington State with the beautiful mountains, thousands of acres of forests, close proximity of lakes and waterways, the mild climate, and so much more, but the politics here drive me absolutely crazy. I just read this article in the Seattle Times about how the liberal legislature is actually working on bills that promote tolls on roads as a way to reduce greenhouse gases. Yeah, go ahead and steal more of my hard earned money and throw it at something that may or may not work to reduce the number of people in cars. Actually, tolls on main roads may force more people to drive farther around the toll roads, increasing the amount of gas used in vehicles.
I am not sold on humans causing global warming at all and think it is a bit arrogant of us to think that we can have such a huge impact on this planet. I do think we may have a very minor impact on the climate, but there are not enough of us humans on this planet to impact nature to this extreme level. If you travel, you will see that the human population in miniscule in comparison to the vast expanse of this earth. I don’t think we should abuse this gift that God has given us, but I also think that the Earth goes through climate changes naturally (as science shows). The history of this planet seems to show we go through climate change cycles so why is this period any different than before? Wasn’t it just 30 years ago the liberals were trying to get us fired up about the next ice age? Wow, we have gone from an ice age to an ice meltdown in just 30 years? That is a microsecond in time for the Earth and I do not agree with the extreme environmentalists who are looking at a short period of time to push their agenda and steal our money. “Global warming” is big business and there are lots of people (like Al Gore) making a pretty penny off of the fear they can raise in the general public.
I encourage people to do some research and check out sites like JunkScience.com before jumping to irrational conclusions. I will never see Al Gore’s “Convenient Lies” movie because of the fear-mongering message is sends out that is not even based on science. It is also a bit strange to me how so many “experts” say that man caused global warming, but there is nothing we can really do to stop it.
