    The battle over fluorocarbons was something the human species can feel mostly proud about. People responded pretty quickly to complex scientific evidence of danger, there was global cooperation with...

    As I mentioned many times, industrial activities associated with agriculture, such as Haber-Bosch and fossil fuels used in the production and transport of crops, cause large net increases in carbon...

    To set the record straight, I agree that electric cars are a good choice compared to ICE cars. Furthermore, bikes are even much better yet.

    If you think objectively, the finding that...

    Bus companies pay gas tax and I assume they would...

    Bus companies pay gas tax and I assume they would also pay a per-mile tax. Ultimately it makes no sense to make transportation (whether car, bike, or bus) totally user supported. First, the common or...

    Well, "what they have" is curb-to-curb potholes and crumbling bridges. I would like for them to do something to fix those. I don't expect they will be fixed for free, and I don't think the state's...
  7. Yes, this is pretty much what I've been trying to...

    Yes, this is pretty much what I've been trying to say also. The bigger,more effective changes can be made in how we produce energy. Downstream changes in the use of energy--while important to a...
  8. You guys aren't looking at the carbon footprint....

    You guys aren't looking at the carbon footprint. You're looking at the carbon little toe-print, and getting all excited about very incremental factors. The fact is, the lion's share of AGW is from...

    Well, it might take a bit of studying because it's a very complex issue.

    At this time, the price gap between coal power and the more sustainable alternatives has narrowed considerably. Another...

    Driving is much more destructive of the common good. On a utilitarian basis, it would be better if more people take the bus and fewer people drive. It's common sense that doing good should be...

    At this point, Oregon is one of the few states where there has been any kind of agreement on funding highways. I do give them credit for that.

    One problem with user fees is that in effect they...

    The goal is that our thoughts will have some connection to reality, and can be observed in the actual world of things and events. YMMV

    That's very convoluted.
  14. Standard industrial agriculture is heavily...

    Standard industrial agriculture is heavily dependent on synthetic fertilizer, which is mostly produced from natural gas with the Haber-Bosch process. The carbon in the natural gas is a by-product...

    I'm calling bull-oney, unless you can quote some posts that hope for a collapse of society. You just make this stuff up in your mind. People who hope for a less car-dependent society believe that it...
  18. Again, all that fancy math and no understanding...

    Again, all that fancy math and no understanding of the basic carbon cycle. It's all about digging carbon out of the ground and pumping it into the air.

    To drive ANY car requires digging more...

    I just read an article that points out another reason to shop more often--to reduce food waste and save a lot of money.



    Bulk shopping creates food waste. Shop more often instead.
  20. The answer is not to drive a car, which does...

    The answer is not to drive a car, which does result in a net increase of CO2 from burning fossil fuels. The answer is to reduce the footprint of your eating habits. Reduce meat consumption, grow your...

    Look at it this way. If you did not eat the food, what would happen to it? It would either rot, be burned, or be eaten by somebody else. In any of those cases, the carbon in the food would be emitted...
  22. Again, the methane (cow farts) are not net...

    Again, the methane (cow farts) are not net increases in the daily fluctuating amounts of carbon in the atmosphere. It's a feedback thing called the carbon cycle. You should read up on it if you're...

    No, you're just ignoring the problem and leaving it to your children and grandchildren. What a guy!

    Preposterous. You're not "generating" CO2 when you ride your bike. You are at most recycling carbon from a solid (food) to a gas (your exhaled breath) as part of the carbon cycle. There is no...
