If everybody cut back on electricity^, would that curtail global warming?
^ meaning stopping usage of tvs, computers, everything NON-ESSENTIAL?
Let's face it: How essential to our lives is "business"?
Why not reclaim our agricultural roots but maintain the transport element as it is necessary to plant and harvest the crops necessary to sustain us all?
Would EVERYBODY be willing to ditch their ipods in favor of more localized communities with real, live, entertainment?
Or if we shut everything off, would it be too late to stop the global warming problem?
I see lots of news articles whining about global warming. Just as they do all sorts of other problems that have been created by mankind rather than God. Yet none of them even bothers to think of a solution.
Y'all can flame me all you want now. But the choice is simple: A radical change now that might just spare us all... or change nothing and we ALL die once we waste energy resources beyond a certain point, baking our planet in the process just as we would a pizza or gerbil pie. Even the mega-wealthy and they are the ones who'd ultimately decide what happens.
Okay, two things:
1. Like, far out!
2. What's a gerbil pie? Please try to maintain some level or decorum in your replies....
Ahhhh, the essence of Moonbatism....scaaaary!
