China cant breathe or see in thier cities but WE are the leader in the global warming fight. Deliberate excuse to shut us down, plain and simple

But you haven’t tied Stalin into Agenda 21, which I thought was the contention you were trying to make.

“Electric power plants are the largest single source of global warming pollution in the country, responsible for nearly 40 percent of greenhouse gas emissions.”

A VERY CAREFULLY and EFFECTIVELY written sentence, implying that electrical power plants in the United States, ALONE, are responsible for 40 of GLOBAL warming in the WORLD. That is why the otherwise-discredited term “global warming” is used.

The truth, not that it matters though, is that China is well ahead of us in greenhouse gas emissions, and pulling away. We are only 18% of the world to begin with, and of that, only one third is from electricity.

So we are attacking a GRAND TOTAL of 6% of greenhouse gasses - in other words if we SHUT DOWN every power plant, world greenhouse gasses would reduce by a total of 6% - that’s it, not the 40% that this story is designed to make us believe. And, by the way, that 6% would be replaced in less than a decade by China and other countries.

"...But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."

“Bush’s approval is higher than his.”
//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

I wonder how many of the libtards are starting to realize that in spite of W’s failings a lot of other things are higher for Bush than for Obama like;
Bush’s IQ, Bush’s credibility, Bush’s respect for people etc. The only thing I can think of in which Obama scores higher is his ARROGANCE.

Let me tell you what you need to do.

Follow that first link you provided in # 53. When you get there, scroll down to the bottom of the page where you will see a link to per capita emissions. Follow that.

Compare China and the US on a per capita basis.

“Compare China and the US on a per capita basis.”

What the hell does that have to do with anything. The sentence was deceptive and our contribution to SAVING THE WORLD, as you guys put it, can only be next to nothing, when we are are only slightly contributing to destroying the world.

Even though US and Western domination of the planet’s resources may still exist in your little world, in the REAL WORLD we are quickly becoming VERY MINOR players.

I have to laugh because drone strikes are higher under Obama than Bush.

Now libtards see wide NSA activity is happening. Maybe soon even some of these libtards will be posting "Miss me yet?" Bush graphics.

Plants require carbon dioxide for the photosynthesis process. If we eliminate CO2, then the only food is mushrooms.

Here's the George Carlin video on "Saving the Planet"

I highly recommend viewing this at least once a year.
Very good therapy for instilling "clarity of mind."

He is pure evil and has no conscience or care because the end justifies the means to him. The man is demonically controlled.

SPOT ON.

I got in a libs face the other day and told him the same thing. He backed down. I was mad and he got the message.
