Global Warming Again.

The earth is traveling around the sun = climate change. The earth is tilted at an angle to its orbit = climate change. The sun is traveling around the galaxy through constantly changing gravitational fields that effect to orbit of the earth making it closer or farther away from the sun = climate change. The sun is a variable star. There are a number of cycles it goes through. A major one is the sun-spot cycle. This makes climate change.
___Historically CO2 levels have risen on earth after global warming has taken place and therefore are not the cause of it. How much the current rise is CO2 is due to natural causes and how much is due to burning fossil fuels can not be determined.
___The plants that currently exist on earth are adapted to much higher CO2 levels than we currently have and they did not all die off because of heat prostration when those levels were much higher than we have today.
___Total control of all the fossil fuels used by mankind would result in the extinction of the race. It would require a world government. Such a government would be no different than any other government. It would keep growing until it uses up all of the resources available to it then it would crash in a spasm of violence and cannibalism. With todays technology and no political pressure to stop pollution the planet would then be uninhabitable for humans.
___So if any government on earth believes that there is a real problem here which one has done anything about it? I have not heard of any one of them doing anything. Which government has changed its zoning laws to stop building permanent buildings in arias that might be flooded by the oceans? None of them. Which one of them has been encouraging development away from such arias? None of them. Which low lying nations have been evacuated? None of them. At least not unless they have experienced a real problem.
___So what do we have. Governments shutting down jobs that use energy. We depend on those jobs to make things we use in other industries and in our home. So we have to use inferior products that fall apart far faster and must be replaced using even more energy. If course those products are made by machines not people. We can just print them with a machine.
___Global Warming is a cannibalistic attack by governments upon their people and not a real problem solving program.

I do not think that a big iron ball in space is in danger by anything we can do.
__ I do support people. What they are doing in Copenhagen is putting more power into the hands of very few people. To best manage the environment it must be done by it’s owners. Putting more property into the commons means that there will be more environmental destruction than there is now.
__ What they should be discussing is a way to clean up the plastic pollution. It is the most serious threat to the living population of the globe that there is. I am certain that once there is enough of that crap in the bio-populations of the planet the top of the food chain will start dieing off. Who can say what devastation that will cause.
__ Cutting back on energy use by the human species is cutting back on it’s means of survival. I do not plan to support that ever. I am pro human.
__ Fewer resources going into government protected corporations and into government projects would allow private businesses the the resources to innovate with and make the economy more efficient for everyone.
__ Of course they would have to be free of regulations that prevent the human mind from thinking of new things that would really help make things better.
__ Where I live the worst managed land is government land. Private property is less well managed because of government mandates.
__ What is happening in Copenhagen looks to be more regulation which will result in more of the environmental destruction that I am seeing.
__ More wood will certainly be burned if they manage to get their energy taxes in place. I certainly plan to install my wood coal stove if they do.
__Wood might be carbon neutral but the practice of harvesting live trees instead of dead wood by it’s suppliers is not. Since much of the wood land in the aria I live is controlled by government people those who do the harvesting do not have a lot of land to harvest dead wood from. Also do to high taxes they could not make money on that land by harvesting it that way.
__ The systems that you want to protect and to fix are very complex. The best way to fix them is to include all of the players who effect the environment directly in the decisions that are needed to protect it.
__ That means everyone who owns any land at all. Government have a lot to fix in those lands under their control That is not what they are doing there. They ear selling off what is there for their private gain.They are after control of the rest of the land as well. Their one size fits all and fixed in law decisions will be most destructive of the environment.
__ Everything that you do in the environment changes something else. You can think and plan about it forever. The only way it will work out is that if you act in the environment and then deal with the changes as the come up.
__ That process can not be legislated because sufficient information on how that particular environment will respond to change will never be available to the legislatures.
__ We the owners of this planet will have to control our own property for it to be of maximum value to ourselves and to all other life forms.
__ Not some groups of self aggrandizing salesmen who will be replaced with more salesmen before the consequences of what they do is even known.
