my personal skepticism is irrelevant. I have been listening to various forms of the global warming concept since I was a kid in the early 70's. To me, human caused global warming does not make since but since I am not an expert, my opinion is not credible. What is credible, as i have stated, is the absurd policies that are developing because of human caused warming. The difference is how we do it. The left-extreme who worship human caused warming ideology isn't concerned about controlled reduction, they want to FORCE their ideas on how we should live and work on all of us. Look at the debate in the San Francisco Bay area., city politicians want to force the use of vehicle tracking devices on personal vehicles to charge the driver by the mile. We are constantly be manipulated by reports on how great other countries have pushed past us on solar and wind. As an engineer, i know thats false, since i am interested in supplementing my power use, i study the technology and its still inefficient. In fact the only panels that come close is a hybrid panel system originally developed in Japan.
I hate the argument and manipulation. The science may ultimately be correct but its political connection calls it into question.
Keep in mind, I want to explore and use alternate resources, but I cant agree that we need to be controlled by those that consider their connection to this debate as consciously superior. Moreover, the advances we have made have been overshadowed by this debate. Car efficiency has greatly improved, consumer electronics have become greatly more efficient and helps make individuals more efficient. admittedly this was stimulated by the science related to global warming.
