"One thing I wonder is what makes so many people think crude oil so special that there's a finite amount and we can NEVER make more, unless more people believe the science behind young earth and the global flood than I thought.
"I'll admit to using the new lightbulbs because it saves me money. We have tract lighting in our finished basement and I used to have to change the bulbs almost every two weeks. Last year I replaced them all with the compact flourescent bulbs…"
"The main concern with compact florescents is not the time lag. I have used them since shortly after their introduction, and the only complaint I have had has been their ability to fire in extreme cold. This makes them unsuitable for some outside…"
One thing i see happening that shouldn't be is conservatives automatically denouncing anything supported by any government meddling.The most pathetic example is the Compact fluorescent bulbs. While i don't support government deciding what bulbs people can use, the fact that they mandated these bulbs does not make them automatically bad. They do produce about the same amount of light with less electricity, and whining about how long they take to come on is just pathetic, it take less than a…See More
"I agree, please please please do not get discouraged in the lack of replies!!! We are working very hard at trying to stop bills from passing and reaching out to the public about different things. We do try to educate others thorugh the website, as…"
"Gilberto, I've scanned your posts!
If I don't respond, it's because I more or less agree. If I disagree, you'll hear! If I think I have something important to add, I'll do so.
But don't quit posting!"
"Gilbert - Please don't be discouraged! You are helping get the information out. I read all of the blogs, but do not comment on all of them. Just because people aren't commenting, doesn't mean the aren't reading! We are and we are…"
"You are correct about this, I too learned many things from talk radio. At this time with things coming at us like a shotgun blast it will be tough to educate the way it SHOULD be done. My SIL didn't even know that the white house wants to turn…"
Most of my posts are about this, but none of those gained any replies, i find this VERY discouraging because it implies to me there is NO interest here for showing the deceived masses the unintended consequences of all these initiatives that look good on the surface.I learned about conservative principles by stumbling across political talk radio. Are we just counting on that to happen with a whole generation? Because i don't really see anything else out there that would explain things like how…See More
"Of course Kevin!
Only problem remains we cannot really hope to reverse the huge burden 'till 2012. The super majority cannot be overcome in the Senate in 2010. Cap and Trade. for instance, will remain when (if?) passed until the Senate is also…"
"The main thing is, these guys need to feel REAL heat in the primaries. Make them realize that if you think you can vote any way you want disregarding the wishes of your voters, you had better think again."
The short version, is that the people who are fooled by this, can easily stay fooled if we oppose it only on the economic impact.I think it fits too well with the dismissal that people who oppose carbon reduction just care about money and aren't concerned with the environment.Remember, these people have had it drilled into their heads that a global disaster WILL happen without drastic change, and crushing economic impact seems like a small price to them.We may want to market carbon as a concern…See More
