Is your point that CE's are not an issue and that global warming being affected by polution derived from the human population is a myth or overstated? Do you think we shouldn't recycle? Or is your point that we as a society just need to re-evaluate the products we consume and consume less? After all, the first R in the 3R's of recycling is "reduce", and this is a point I whole heartedly agree with.
Again, I'm not trying to be arguementative, just want to understand your opinion better.
Yes I did get a bit side tracked. I don't believe that there carbon emissions are a serious problem. There is too strong a money trail to CE regulatory bodies and no actual changes being made for me to believe what I am being told. I am talking about carbon emissions
by the way. The emittance of carbon gases into the atmosphere by the burning of fossil fuels and industial practices. These are what we are being told is creating climate change. I have been informed on this thread that the 24/7 flying of airplanes creates more CE than volcanic activity if this planet is in crisis then don't all planes need to be grounded for at least eight hours a day? Well no, because airlines buy
carbon credits to offset the planes emissions. If we are being pushed to the brink of disaster by carbon emissions being spewed by factories then shouldn't those factories have to stop producing so many CE's. This can be achieved simply by eliminating the manufacture of products superfluous to human existance, like soft drinks for example. So apparently, here we are on the brink of disaster and manufacturers still have those factories going 24/7 pumping out luxury items AND carbon emissions. But you see they don't have to change anything because in order to offset their carbon footprint they can buy
So no, everytime I walk through my grocery store and look at all the pretty stuff I realise what an amazing scam the global carbon emissions problem is.
Now, just because I think that CE are a cash cow, that does not change the problems created by over population and the destruction of habitats and the problems of ground pollution (although there to, less manufacture of crap would go a long way to solving that problem). They are different issues to the CE money machine.
