Sucking Carbon From Sky May Be Necessary to Cool Planet, UN Says
NBC News ^ | April 14, 2014 | by John Roach

Posted on 04/14/2014 4:55:26 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

International efforts to combat global warming are so broken that it's come to this: hoovering massive amounts of carbon dioxide out of the sky.

A body of scientists convened under the auspices of the United Nations is giving more weight to the idea that vacuuming vast stores of CO2 from the skies and burying it in the ground may be necessary to limit the temperature rise to the internationally agreed safe level of 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit above pre-industrial levels. The plan's not quite like a giant thermostat for the whole globe, but the metaphor's not completely off either.

The Lear jet leftists expect to form the core of the global Green Inner Party. There they will continue to enjoy the finest foods and most advanced gadgets the world has to offer — while deciding your fate for you.

If you work very hard and show them your unwavering loyalty you may be permitted to join the global Green Outer Party. You will be allowed occasional servings of meat - and air conditioning on a rationed basis.

The rest of us will eat beans and swelter — for the good of the planet.

I don't know who's more scarier, the nuts that wrote this or the nuts at NBC that repeat it as gospel.

NBC propaganda is much scarier.

The goal is to have complete control over the people. They want you living in a tiny eco-apartment, and riding a bus.

Meanwhile the elites will continue to tool around in limos, SUVs, and private jets, and live in gigantic houses.

You can't eat beans...you'll become a methane producer. You might as well live among the cows...and produce musical farts.

I wonder how much it would take to set up a business that uses a “patented” technology to do exactly that, remove the CO2 from the atmosphere.

I could rent some fancy office space, charter a private jet, throw some parties, etc.

Of course I'll need a generous grant from the UN...

You're right. Also, if conservatives thought this was a real issue - which we don't - we would also suggest planting more trees in mall parking lots etc as a way of stopping the creation of weird heat sink micro climates around large cities.

What the environmentalists forget is the the world is a dynamic system.

If the world heats up, more sea water is absorbed into the atmosphere and that means clouds and rain and that blocks the sun and cools the environment and the earth.

It is a balanced system and almost impossible to create imbalance except for political expediency.;-)

If you want to put an oil pipeline through, you've got to fill out thousands of pages of forms and wait years until some bureaucrat gives you the nod, because you might be affecting some snail or owl or fish.

But the same people who demand accountability from oil pipeline companies or dam builders think that it's okay to purposely draw tons of a naturally occurring compound from the atmosphere, and that there will be no negative consequences?????

translation - our other attempts to force governments and taxpayers into forcibly paying into and forcibly joining the global warming religion have failed to garner enough national, global and public support, so let’s try another
“public investment” scheme in the combined names of “science” and “saving the world”.

In commercial greenhouses C02 machines are used to accelerate growth in young plants. As the plants mature the C02 production is cut back because they don't consume and process as much.

Forests work the same way. Young trees planted after a timber harvest are active and eat air like teenagers eat pizza.

SOOOO - ain't it funny that the liberal nutballs that want to kill the timber industry are worried about C02?

Well hey - these are the same folks that rant and rant about clean and renewal energy and lobby congress to tear out hydroelectric dams.

The thing that confuses me is how anyone can take these batshit crazy people seriously!

Crazy like a fox. Imagine the potential to tax us all to accomplish such a task.... On top of that, the people the perpetuate the hoax are the ones who will benefit financially by offering “their green services.” The politicians will get plenty of kickback from their “green friends” and they can all feel good about it while we pay for it - forever.

These idiots are the biggest danger to freedom. The ability to “tax” carbon is nothing more than the ability to tax anything and everything. FRegards.
