Global Warming debate Heats Up

_44272057_co2_monitoring.gifI just lambasted another blogger in his comments about his ignorant post on global warming and why it is not a serious issue. This graph, called the Keeling Curve, shows the results of 50 years of research tracking carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere. I’d say the trend is an increase, wouldn’t you? Article here.

In a related story, the House passed compromise legislation calling for gas emissions standards to reach an average of 35mpg by 2020. The key word is average. That not only means that commercial trucking will be immune but that all the rich people will be able to continue to drive their SUV’s while the little people will drive whatever they have to in order to reach the legal average. It’s all way too little too late and is bullshit.
