Ok begly, then why are you not screaming from the rooftops about the guy 12 miles from me in Napoleon Ohio that developed an engine that went from Napoleon Ohio to Las Vegas and back to Napoleon Ohio on 39 gallons of gas in a Ford MUSTANG. That is 101 miles per gallon! The state of Ohio has already tried to help market this engine but the feds stopped them. Or are you all hat and no cattle? This engine is documented and works and even has had reps from the OPEC countries wanting to buy it but were refused. Same for the big 3 automakers. SO put up or shut up Begly.

With all of the resources we have here in the United States it seems to me that the solution is simple. Use technology like the engine you mention, drill and extract oil, sell it to fix our economy and be free from the influences from outside nations who have proven they don't respect or care for us. We are a nation made up of citizens who want the best for others but when they prove to be hostile to us, our government and leaders need to act strong and do what's best for us.

Former Greenpeace insider, Patrick Moore testified about climate change last
week before a Senate committee. He disputed the environmental movement’s
doomsday scenario, depicting climate change over the past century as “minor
warming” and argued that “there is no scientific proof that human emissions
of carbon dioxide are the dominant cause.”

Of course the major media outlets suppressed this news.

Maybe those who wish to continue to make the US pay for environmental atrocities should take a look around... California has bankrupted itself and it's cities by taxing itself to death and mandating all types of environmental safety regulations, while ignoring the FACT (viewed via NASA satellite images) that much of the air born pollution on the left coast comes from India and China. The US, under the guise of a clean environment, has destroyed the economy of this country and exported manufacturing to China and India, among other countries (Mexico), where cheap labor and pollution accepted.

Why is wanting to protect the environment a bad thing? Personal pot shots at someone who cares about the future of the world doesn't seem to be very productive. If you want to pick on someone why not go to China or India or just about any other nation and ask their leadership what they are doing? You can't even walk in the streets without your lungs burning in most of the major cities in China.

Nobody knew about it in the first place and everybody just found out. Once I hear there was a Savings & Loan crises and 1000 bankers were arrested, many went to jail.

Enviro sustainability will require a much lower standard of living or population. I don't see much of a line of volunteers forming for either. Someone must choose. Who?
Agree 21
Disagree 4

Collin Cantrell Posted 4 years ago
Actually, there are ways to achieve environmental sustainability without lowering the standard of living, but instead boosting it. For instance, trash in landfills tends to create methane, which will form large bubbles underground that push up against the surface. This must be burnt off; otherwise, it presents hazardous conditions for workers and people living nearby. Why not burn the methane for energy. It's not exactly "green," but it's an alternative to using coal and oil. There are other sustainable energy sources that would benefit economically, if people would try to adopt them.

I remember about 30 years ago. Then it was called Global Cooling. The earth was supposed to be an Iceland by the 90's. it warmed up again,because climate moves in cycles, then they called it Global Warming. Then it started cooling off again, they looked silly, so they renamed it Climate Change. Every disaster that comes our way is called 'The Worst in History'. No Way. Do some research on the late 1800's through the 40's. So far here, something worse has already happened. It's all about the redistributing of our money to where they want it to go, but I'd like to keep mine.

Solar arrays, wind, geo-thermal, and other methods can provide competition to the oil companies if we can get corporations to not exist for profits when addressing national energy needs. Shouldn't we just nationalize the energy sector and establish fair pricing? Other countries have done it. It works!
Those of you deniers of global warming are refuting 98 per cent of climate scientists' conclusions. Why is that? Does it hurt us to engage in creating alternate energy solutions? Does it hurt us to lower our carbon footprint? The big answer is "No".

How about you start "ACTING" less like an air head and wasting time on moronic issues that are not real. There is no such thing as "Man Made Global Warming". In fact we are cooling.

And you are citing the 2 per cent of climate scientists and Republican pundents, who endorse reducing regulations on air and water pollution, because Oil Companies own the Republican Party. Your refusal to stand with the majority of the world that actaully sees our glaciers melting and lakes disappear is really a mark of your obstinence in the face of the facts. Global Warming creates harsher summers and winters, because of additional water in our atmosphere. This varies on locale. Not on your denial of the facts!

When Ehrlich predicted that England would not exist in the year 2000, what steps shouldIn 1970, when environmentalists were making predictions of manmade global cooling and the threat of an ice age and millions of Americans starving to death, what kind of government policy should we have undertaken to prevent such a calamity? the British Parliament have taken in 1970 to prevent such a dire outcome? In 1939, when the U.S. Department of the Interior warned that we only had oil supplies for another 13 years, what actions should President Roosevelt have taken?

In 1939, the U.S. Department of the Interior said American oil supplies would last only another 13 years. In 1949, the Secretary of the Interior said the end of U.S. oil supplies was in sight. Having learned nothing from its earlier erroneous claims, in 1974 the U.S. Geological Survey advised us that the U.S. had only a 10-year supply of natural gas.

Collin Cantrell Posted 4 years ago
Nicole, first of all, the environment cannot be irreparably damaged by humans because nature is capable of doing far worse, and has done far worse, and life still exists. Furthermore, thousands of animals dying is hardly enough to be 'irreparable' anyway. In fact, I fished in the Gulf only 6 months after the spill, and didn't see an 'irreparable' depletion in the haul. In fact, all the fish caught were healthy. While what happened was bad, it would be a good idea to understand the scope of things in reality rather than what is spoon fed to you by the media.

For you "More oil nuts"! Obama has created more new oil leases than Bush ever did. Also, the whine about the oil leases is mostly BS. Thousands of leaseholders can't get the oil Companies to pump the oil out. The Oil Companies use their PR machine to get the US Government to sell off the final 22 per cent of the leases, so the Oil Companies can completely control the resource. Maybe it's a good thing we make the Oil Companies pump the wells they drilled, and never used. Don't you think so, too? Too many people who bought the leases deserve our support, too. Learn the facts!

Marilyn Perona Posted 6 years ago
I just heard that only about 10-20% of current oil wells are actually running at a profit -- the rest run at a LOSS! Oil is 19th and 20th century energy that we are dragging into the 21st at great cost to ourselves and the planet. We have plenty of healthy, sustainable resources to develop and invest in, which would also support necessary new jobs.

The climate scientists that scientifically measure the average earth temperature from ice cores and other means are not all Democrats, nor even Americans. Blaming Obama for your "hoax" is like blaming the moon for your birth. If you have nothing enlightening to say, then why bother with your bullet points, dreamed up by the Oil Companies and Energy sector, that want profits over our needs for clean air, pollution, or our lives, for that matter. It's all about greed and your belief in ritualistic catharsis. Look it up! Carbon creates heat reflection back to our earth or global warming.

Bruce, while I can agree with you on many of the previous posts, I must say that you are off base when it comes to Republicans. I am not defending them, as I vote for them because the alternative supports an agenda that is detrimental to the economy while failing to effectively protect the environment or implement alternative energy. At least, that is my reasoning in the matter of Energy. On the other hand, you claim tree huggers as being the intelligent ones, when they fail to realize that many alternatives require the exploitation of poisonous heavy metals, such as solar.

Umm, we are pumping more oil, hence...the prices are going down. Of course, if your memory is shot and you can't remember the highest gas prices were under Bush, then we can't help you. And hugging trees that clean the carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere is not that bad of an idea. But of course, Republicans hate intelligent people and seek to label them as Tree-huggers, Socialists, Marxists, or anything to demean them. But, from Fascist, Bigot, Lowbrow Republicans, what can we expect?

Sustainability is just a code word by the New World Order (NWO) that means to control. Our planet has a finite amount of coal, oil, and natural gas. The United States has the largest supply of coal, oil, and natural gas than any other country in the world. So based on the points made above, who should then have control (i.e. sustainable) of those natural resouces? Logically, it should be the United States, but since real political, economic, and financial power is constantly fought for by many countries they seek to take the sustainable resources away from the United States. Think about it

Actually, there are viable solutions. It's called inspiring people to study science and engineering in order to find creative solutions rather than deriding them as nerds. In the last five years alone, I have read up on numerous articles about viable solutions, and wondering, why don't I see them in action when we have the technology, the resources, and the ambition to make them available everywhere. We can blame both the Dems who try to force impractical agendas of radical tree huggers on the nation, and Republicans who are backed by woefully old fashioned business leaders.

Bruce Spallino Posted 5 years ago
There are plenty of viable solutions to our energy problems. Sadly, it's hard to find a corporation that can compete with the labor market in China and the need to make money inherent in the way corporations operate. Did you know that fracking could allow us to increase the geo-thrermal energy production instead of bringing Shale Tar (heavier than water oil) up to the surface? Shale Tar cannot be removed from streambeds and lakes, in case of a spill! But Using Geo-thermal to heat water is a great way to create energy with no pollution. Could we please explore this more? Solar and Wind, too.

I don't understand why mercury filled light-bulbs are better than incandescent bulbs. Wouldn't it be more environmentally sound to find a way to recycle non-lethal incandescent bulbs than poison all of our landfills? If you put a 100% tax on incandescent bulbs for recycling making them $1.20 they would still be a lot cheaper than the mercury bulbs and I won't have to struggle to read. People that buy the mercury bulbs don't register their purchase so we won't know who to blame when our water starts showing signs of mercury. T

Bruce Spallino Posted 5 years ago
Incandescent bulbs require more energy than mercury, or flourescent, or the new LED technology. Since Republicans refuse to allow our nation to improve our Energy network and Infrastructure needs, we have to use lower energy solutions. In regard to mercury bulbs, let us hope these will be phased out soon, as well. If Republicans could learn to play together with Independents and Democrats, better solutions could occur quicker. Obstruction serves no one. Republicans control the purse strings at the moment. Don't blame Obama. He can only sign responsible legislation, not create it.
