Since the Industrial Revolution in the 1700?s, human activities, such as the burning of oil, coal and gas, and deforestation, have increased CO2 concentrations in the atmosphere. In 2005, global atmospheric concentrations of CO2 were 35% higher than they were before the Industrial Revolution.

BRUSSELS ? The European Commission is expected to introduce a plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions that directs the largest slices of ?50 billion available for research and development to solar power and capturing and burying emissions from coal plants.

Republicans in Congress have tried to slow the EPA from acting on toxic pollutants and on greenhouse gases, saying that the rules would hurt the economy.

This should make you Lefties happy......those nasty repubs.....huh?

Well chew on this a while.............YOU WILL PAY AND PAY AND PAY. Till there is nothing left for you to pay with. Lefties live and die by their ideology...... those on the 'thinking' right are trying to survive and protect what's left of our economy.

Some you 'we' folks won't get it till it's too late, yep too late for YOU too.

Hey Jacko, Melatonin occurs naturally in the body also.
Why don't you try dumping 35 times the dose in yourself.

It's pretty easy to understand why tile, granite, and kitty litter are radioactive. They contain low levels of minerals that naturally decay. Bananas are radioactive for a similar reason. The fruit contains high levels of potassium. Radioactive K-40 has an isotopic abundance of 0.01% and a half-life of 1.25 billion years. The average banana contains around 450 mg of potassium and will experience about 14 decays each second. It's no big deal. You already have potassium in your body, 0.01% as K-40. You are fine. Your body can handle low levels of radioactivity. The element is essential for proper nutrition. If you have a banana in your car for your lunch you aren't going to set off a Geiger counter. If you carry a produce truck full of them, you might encounter some problems. Ditto for a truck of potatoes or potassium fertilizer.

Bananas Are Radioactive




I'm smarter than you.

You can start here.


I have more to add but really don't feel like wasting my time.

To the article- Do you have an understanding of the cafe standards? How they are used? The need for a national standard? The costs that are added to EVERY vehicle in the country for Cali's standards? Fines paid and the racket envolved?

Read my link and you'll see this is not about cafe standard per se but a much larger problem.



This 'we'?
ok, so business claim any regulation will kill the industry, nothing new here, it's just industry speak for we don't want to keep up with the rest of the world emissions wise as we would rather have larger bonuses....

amazing how "republicans/tea partiers" are all for state's rights until it a state enacts legislation that costs businesses money, then it should be handled by the federal government.... so it's more effective to lobby and harder to get any regulations passed....

you do realize we have but 1 earth and we cannot continue on our path of pollution with an ever growing population, we either need to reduce pollution/use fewer resources or cull some of the population, and except for the republicans stance on healthcare I haven't seen them propose that.

what good is some ceo's making tons of money if we have no decent place to live? beyond that ignoring all the other ridiculous arguments any investment in more efficient energy sources reduce our expenses overall as a nation, if we spend less on fuel we have more elsewhere.
