I love this crap. I say that there are contradicting theories and, you, right away say that isn't accurate. So, I must be wrong and you must be right. So be it.
Let me ask the gallery this, cars before 1975 had basically NO pollution controls whatsoever on them. No, cars are ten times cleaner burning and put out minute amounts of hydrocarbos into the air. But, we still blame the automobile for Global Warming.
Don't you see this as an agenda to get people out of their cars and into mass transit?
As far as the question of what have I done or offered up to what am I willing to give up???
I Have switched ALL the light bulbs in my house to compact florecents. I Have put patio shade covers on the back yard/sunny side of the house to decrease thermal gain in the afternoons, I have added a programable thermostat to control the air conditioning, I keep my cars maintained and tires properly inflated.
I have done research on solar panels, this would be especially nice living here in Southern California, however, at an initial layout of about 25-35k, it is a bit beyond my budgetary means.
