Don't get me wrong. It is good to be green. I will be the first to admit that it is warmer now that it was in the mid '70s when I remember getting feet of snow during storms over the winter. My problem is with the declaration that we are responsible for the warming. Which is why I particularly enjoyed this documentary, The Great Global Warming Swindle:
Anyway, keep in mind that CO2 is a good thing. Plants need it to live. Now if it is the Sun that is responsible for Global Warming, reducing CO2 emissions will not save us. Hell, the 'experts' that believe that CO2 is the key are telling us that we are all screwed already, so why are you sweating it? You are not going to stop Global Warming. Now, feel free to purchase an energy efficient light bulb and avoid buying an SUV. But do it for the right reason, your own personal preference and your own financial situation.
Late last year, there was this crazy idea put forward of placing sunshades in orbit to combat Global Warming. With the idea that the cause of Global Warming might be the Sun (As is the cause on the other planets) then the sunshades in orbit don't sound so crazy anymore. (Read more on the Space Shade here.)
So, live smart and feel free to do the small things that will help the planet, but don't let this issue warp your brain.
