Thread Name: BS: WOW!!! Unbelievable Global Warming Fact
Subject: RE: BS: WOW!!! Unbelievable Global Warming Fact
One of the paradoxes we face is that we clearly need to build a new global economy based on non-fossil fuels. Of course this will require a new global infrastructure. Of course this will require energy to build. And what source of energy must we use to build this new infrastructure?....you got it!
Our choice is to pretend there is no problem and suck the hydrocarbons until they are gone, and we are stuck with nothing and face global economic collapse and upheaval (think Mad Max), or exploit what is left but use it to build a new sustainable human society.
Amazingly, the Koch brothers and their ilk make money on hydrocarbons either way, so I really don't see why they and their minions continue to deny that we have a looming catastrophe. I suspect it is because they simply cannot admit that the Looney Greenies might actually have a valid point.
