I'm pondering more sunnyflowers comment about Bin Laden and trying to figure out if she's joking?...
If you do not want to discuss the topic, then feel free to leave. I will show the graphic again for those that would like to discuss it.
I'm not even going to pretend that I understand the graphs, the models and the figures, to be honest I don't think the 'professionals' understand it all either, but one thing I know to be true is the world is a better place without pollution, deforestation, fracking and unfettered mining.
We know how important forests are in regulating climate, moisture levels & air quality (not to mention preserving biodiversity) and we know how detrimental the coal/power/production plants are to air and soil quality. Why is it bad to want to preserve/improve the natural environment and and reduce the things that are harmful to the environment.
Long before climate change was 'in' I saw a documentary about a guy who was basically 'pioneering' the idea of carbon credits, he was going to villages in third world countries and talking to them about being paid to plant and nurture their forests instead of ripping it all down and then going to big business and saying they could offset the environmental impacts of their businesses by paying these farmers/villagers to preserve their forests. I think most of the businesses thought he was mad, I thought he was genius.
