If I were President, I would open the Fields of Wyoming too. People NEED JOBS and need sercurity from Middle East thugs. The green movement need to set their priorities straight.
Yet more embarrassing emails have been released by an unknown hacker or hackers that show the top climate scientists engaging more in political activism than in science. In many of the emails they seem to out right admit that they have a weak argument, but that didn't stop them propaganda.
Here are a couple of quotes from one of the scientists to another.
* Observations do not show rising temperatures throughout the tropical troposphere unless you accept one single study and approach and discount a wealth of others.
* I also think the science is being manipulated to put a political spin on it which for all our sakes might not be too clever in the long run.
lol, that works.
Like I said though, the total carbon footprint of a can of soda is 153 grams, so multiply the 20.4 million gallons of gas by 152, yikes! Over 3.1 billion gallons. lol
Hey the next time my wife drives to and from the mall,I'll tell her she is using up a half case of sodas...Like she will care..:-)
Like I said just a small part of emissions. The Prius was mentioned in one of the studies, consuming one can of soda is equal to driving one mile in a Prius.
Pretty good data but factory CO2 emissions are the concern since everyday use cannot be curbed. In other countries it's fertilizers and the excess cutting of trees......My Prius is listed @ 19.3 (lol) The Prius is listed as making 3.7 Tons of CO2 annually. This is based on driving 15,000 miles anda 55% city / 45% highway split on the fuel use....Math is fun.
have a good one
Just for grins I looked up some data, although not a major factor in CO2 emissions it counts... a can of soda.
A can of soda releases 1 gram of CO2 into the atmosphere, a additional 152 grams is used to manufacture and transport said can of soda.
The average American consumes 1.6 cans of soda a day. The latest American population I could find is 311 million persons. That equals 185,667,000,000 grams of CO2 released just by opening and consuming a can of soda.
One US ton equals 907,184.74 grams, so the soda consumed in America equals 204,662.8 tons or 409,325,600 pounds of CO2 emission a year.
One gallon of gasoline used in a vehicle produces 20 pounds of CO2 emission.
So the amount of cans of soda consumed in America in a year releases the equivalent amount of CO2 as burning 20,466,280 gallons of gasoline.
A small part of total CO2 emissions in America , but I thought it was interesting.
You're right it was an interesting look on how things have played and I tried hard to disprove that but I couldn't .....:-) Good info ,thanks.
Maybe things will change if he's re-elected. I thought the study they were writing about was an interesting look at how things have played out now though. And you're right about how different factors - the economy, a Congress that leans toward the opposite political party - can determine whether environmental proposals ever get taken up.
I have to admit for the most part you are correct. The president angered me when he made the wrong environmental decisions that were in his control , such as scrubbing clean-air regulations that was supposed to reduce health-threatening smog. Then he opened the fields of Wyoming to coal mining which was equivalent to opening 300 cold fire plants.
He could not pass any of his environmental proposals through a republican climate change denying Congress. The president claims that it puts a burden on businesses at a time will we have a struggling economy. We will see the health costs eat any savings that might have been saved by lowering environmental standards.
For the moment you are correct but I believe if given a second term and a favorable congress;Obama would do much better.
