AND

You agree that if any clause or component of this document is found to not be legally binding in a court of law of proper jurisdiction then the remainder of this document shall remain fully binding and in full force.

AND

You agree to NOT hold Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd. (makers of the forum software), uspoliticsonline.com, sites affiliated with uspoliticsonline.com, its administrators, its moderators, others associated with its operation, and its owners liable for any and all of the following (in whole or in part):
Personal insults/attacks by other members.
The content posted by other members, whether directed at you personally or a label/classification you associate with. This includes remarks you consider to be libelous or slanderous in any way.
Any financial or time loss due to your participation here or as a result of something you read at this site, including posts/PMs by other members and feature(s)/software available at the domain uspoliticsonline.com.
The dissemination of any personal information about you as a result of either your negligence (e.g. staying logged into a computer that others have access to) or willingness to post such information on a public and or private forum, private message or chat box. This includes using your real name or other details that could allow other members and/or the general public to determine your true identity. You are prohibited from using your real name on these forums, either as your username or in posts / PMs you write.

FORUM RULES, IN ADDITION TO THE DISCLAIMER

1. These rules apply to all sections of USPOL, including public and private forums, blogs, and visitor messages.

2. You cannot attack and/or personally insult someone. You cannot bait other forum members; this includes referring to posters by derogatory terms. Please, remain courteous and respectful to all forum members at all times. You agree to take responsibility for reporting such posts when you come across them. Please, use the ignore feature if need be. Any member who intentionally and continually posts inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages with the primary intent of provoking readers into an emotional response, or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion, may be regarded as a troll by staff, and have their account suspended or banned.

3. You cannot harass (sexually or otherwise) other members. This includes malicious, slanderous, or defamatory comments. If you are not sure if something you write is inappropriate or not then don't say it. Err on the side of caution.

4. Copying and Pasting Articles, and Starting New Threads. You cannot simply cut and paste in posts or when starting threads. You MUST provide the identifying information (source, author, date, and URL). You must also offer some original thoughts along with the cut and paste. You may copy and paste an excerpt or series of excerpts from the article. Excerpts really shouldnt be more then a paragraph or two. Furthermore, if you use images or other copyrighted material in your posts or signature you must have permission of the copyright holder unless you know for a fact that the image is in the public domain. In addition:
a. It must include the identifying information; e.g., where available, the author, the publication, the date, the URL.
b. The member must offer some context, including: How did you hear of this article? What is your opinion? Why is it important to you? Why should it be important to forum readers? The more context you provide, the more you assist others in gauging the excerpted information's significance.
c. You may copy and paste an excerpt or series of excerpts, not the whole thing or even the majority of the whole thing to encourage people to read the entire article.

A violation of any of the above will result in the deletion or closing of the post or thread and could earn you a warning or suspension. If you have any questions concering any of the above please PM a moderator and we will be happy to clarify.

5. You cannot post the same thing in multiple forums. You must not open similar threads about the same or a similar topic. You cannot spam the board or send unsolicited messages to members via PM, email or any other means.

6. Do not post off-topic. You cannot derail a thread with off topic posts.

7. You cannot shout in posts. This includes posting in all CAPS, bold, lIkE tHiS, and extra large font. Posts should also be one color, although you may use an additional color for highlighting ideas you wish to address.

8. You may not alter quotes in a way that misrepresents what was originally said.

9. Multiple accounts are not allowed. If you are found to have more than one account all accounts will be permanently terminated.

10. You cannot have a user name, avatar, signature, or post images that are deliberately offensive. That includes the display of overly explicit or graphic images that may not be suitable for minors.

11. Signatures can not have more than three lines of text, with a font size no larger than "4", and no more than two font colors. Images in signatures cannot be any larger than 800 pixels wide x 200 pixels tall. Animated images are not allowed.

12. You are prohibited from taking any action to disturb the use of the services by others, distribute material that contains viruses, spyware or any other malicious code or harmful programs. This includes interfering with the working of the network, attempts to gain unauthorized access to a service or other computer systems that are part of the site or any other site, by use of the available services.

13. Discussion of moderation actions in public and/or private forums is not permitted. Moderation actions include warnings, suspensions and the editing or deletion of posts. If a member has a concern about a moderation action, he or she is invited to address it with the board staff via Private Message. This rule exists to protect the privacy of all posters with regards to disciplinary action. The moderator team will never publicly discuss the warnings/suspensions of any posters, and we ask that you return the favor, whether about yourself or another poster. Posting about moderation actions in the public forums constitutes a violation. You are free to discuss a moderation action via Private Message with the moderator involved, but you may not harass or abuse the moderators (as already specified in the forum rules). In practical terms, this means that once a moderator tells you his or her decision is final, no further PMs about that moderation action are permitted. If you have a concern about a moderation action, you are free to appeal to a Forum Administrator via Private Message. You may only discuss moderator activities or discussion of moderation with staff member if you chose to private message and are not under any circumstances allowed to use the PM function to forward or promote moderator discussion in regards to specific forum action, amongst other regular members. Administrators do reserve the right to read said PMs and may do so ; if that results in discovery of messaging between posters of such moderator discussion then it will lead to the same violation being received for discussing said moderator actions on the forum. If you receive a message to the effect of having been given moderator information, please report it to a member of staff. Engaging back in that discussion with the original violator will earn you just as stiff a sanction.

14. Do not ignore moderators or administrators. Do not repost something a moderator or administrator has deleted. You cannot have moderators or administrators on your ignore list.

15. Only post in English. Short passages in foreign languages may be acceptable if its use seems helpful for the ongoing discussion and when there is no indication of a potential violation of the forum rules. Always provide a translation into English in such cases. In case of doubt, the incident will be regarded as a violation, no matter of the actual meaning of the foreign language text.

16. The use of words/comments etc. written by other posters, without approval of the poster in your personal signature is not allowed nor are references, by name, to other posters allowed.

17. Please pay attention to announcements by Forum staff that will be found in the "Welcome! / News & Announcements" forum from time to time.

18. Use of "liar", "lies", "lying", etc. Accusing someone of being a "liar" or similar accusations towards other posters will generally be regarded as implying an insult and therewith as a violation of the forum rules. "I question the validity of your statement because...", "That's not the truth" or "you are wrong about that" are sufficient for any decent discussion if you want to disagree with somebody's assertions.

19. Thread opening restriction for new members. In order to control SPAM, new members must have moderator approval to start their own threads.

20. Thread titles must relate to the discussion within. Do not make misleading titles, or titles such as "Guess what..." or "You'll never believe this...". Members need to be able to identify the general gist of the thread via the title. Profanity in thread titles is not permitted.

21. Forum members are instructed to use forum tools and abilities for their intended purposes and no other. If members identify a forum glitch or weakness of any kind that allows you to see or do something you know you shouldn't, please report it. Being aware of any unintended access to the Forum and failing to take appropriate steps to notify staff of said access issues, will create a presumption of seeking to take advantage of the issue, will result in either account suspension, or banishment.

22. Any link to a site that contains graphic content, must contain a warning describing what a person might reasonably expect to view if they click on said link. No graphic pictures are to be posted on the Forum.

23. Threats or advocations of violence toward a public figure, or member of the Forum, will not be tolerated. Conversation about revolution or the like is not prohibited by this rule; directly calling for violence is, eg It's time to kill every <redacted> that voted for the bill, is not permitted.

24. Accounts with no posts will be deleted after 30 days. Inactive accounts with low post histories may be deleted after one year.

25. Private forums are something offered to members that decide to contribute directly to this site via donations. These donations help immensely in keeping this site up and running. Private forums are designed to allow the contributing member discuss whatever he/she wants to and to have the power to direct that discussion in whatever way he/she chose. They were not designed nor are they intended for simply talking trash about members that don't have access to the forum. While the targeted members cannot see the forum or the comments, it creates a negative atmosphere that really isn't necessary. If you want to totally rip apart ideas, ideologies, political parties, etc. that is fine. We simply ask that you don't use the private forums as a means to attack other members that aren't privy to such comments. It is difficult enough to have a political discussion forum because the discussion of politics is inherently heated as people are so passionate about their beliefs...the ones that take the time to come to such a site in the first place at least. The idea of private forums is so people of similar political persuasions can discuss whatever they want without fear of being attacked. Nonetheless, we hope that a certain level of maturity would foster itself within such an arena and not simply lend itself to a bashing forum.

Private Forums are governed by all of the above Forum rules. In addition:
  • Private forums that essentially become abandoned homes will be subject to deletion, donation or reorganization. Just like elsewhere in life, clubs sometimes lose their vitality and purpose for a myriad of reasons. If it becomes clear that a private forum has clearly lost its vitality and nobody is going to really use it anymore, owners are advised to consider whether to reuse the forum for something new and productive rather than let them linger or notify the Administration that the forum should be rearranged for other purposes, closed, merged with other compatible private forums, donated to others for new purposes, etc. Do not be concerned that your forum must be a membership and post count race with others to avoid falling under this policy; the question is whether your forum has actual vitality instead of being 'brain dead.'
  • Additionally, private forums may only be owned by subscribed members in the Platinum or Diamond categories.
  • Should the owner of a private forum be banned, quit USPOL or otherwise abandon the forum the PF will be transferred to another owner or closed.
  • Propriety of private forums. Administration staff will determine the desirability of a proposed private forum and enact any conditions upon it to ensure its purpose is productive.
  • Any and all instances of sharing accounts by allowing someone else to log in under their own account so they can see into private forums for which they are otherwise not permitted to access, will be deemed violation of the double account rule and all caught doing so will be permanently banned.
  • Relaying private forum posts and information to other posters who are not members of the particular private forum for any negative or destructive purpose (eg mean-spirited gossip, fueling interpersonal disputes, etc), is not permitted, and will constitute a violation of the Forum rules.
  • For purposes of monitoring USPOL Terms of Service Administrative staff (not Moderators) will have access to Private Forums.
  • All Private Forums must have at least one active Administrator as a member for purposes of handling issues which cannot be addressed through moderation permissions.
  • Discussion of moderation activities is prohibited on the open site and is likewise prohibited in Private Forums.

26. The administrators and moderators reserve the right to edit and/or delete a post,and/or close a thread, and/or delete a thread at any time if of the opinion that the post is too obscene, inappropriate, or the discussion has run its course.

27. 'Back seat moderating' is not allowed. If you take issue with another poster's contribution to the forum, you're welcome to report any posts you think are out of line, but you should not bring it up publicly within the forum.

28. Images in posts (whether embedded or hot linked) must be reasonable in size. 800x800 should be considered a good rule of thumb. Excessively large images make it difficult for users on mobile devices to load pages. If necessary please simply link to very large images using the URL tags. In addition, the following images are not permitted (including, but not limited to pages with images or videos containing):
  • Strategically covered nudity
  • Sheer or see-through clothing
  • Lewd or provocative poses
  • Close-ups of breasts, buttocks, or crotches

29. Any solicitation or communication involving sports betting / gambling / online casinos / bookies and or internet based card or slot machine systems or sites will lead to all said content being physically removed from the site and server, and will lead to any and or all parties involved being permanently removed and banned from the site to the farthest extent possible. This includes any links to any form of bookmaker, casino, any type of game or match or event where money transfers on the outcome or link of any sort to wire act violations and or anything in violation of either the Internet Gambling Regulation, Consumer Protection, and Enforcement Act, Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006, or the Federal wire Act. This applies not only to the open forum but all and or any chat rooms, articles, private messages and or private forums. All content that violates this rule will be deleted, without notice.

CONSEQUENCES

Failure to comply with any of the forum rules may result in your posts being edited or deleted and/or your account being temporarily or permanently banned from the forums. U.S. Politics Online uses a warning system that generates an automated Private Message to members when they are in violation of Forum rules. The decision to issue a warning is left to the discretion of the moderator or administrator handling the violation. If a member does not agree with an action taken by a moderator, they can appeal to an administrator after seeking clarification from the moderator who issued the warning/infraction and appealing to them in the first instance. Members MAY NOT harass a moderator or administrator by sending excessive PMs when they are discussing an appeal.

Violations are assigned a point value. Points are valid for 30 days. When a members earns 10 points, their account will be automatically suspended: five (5) days for a first suspension; ten (10) days for a second suspension; and twenty (20) days for a third suspension. If a member incurs an additional 10 points after having served three periods of suspension, then they will be permanently banned from the Forum.

Point values are as follows:
Zero (0) points Warning
Two (2) points - Minor infraction / Non post infraction (minor) / Off topic posts / spamming
Four (4) points - Academic dishonesty / Baiting / Discussing moderator or administrator actions / Implying an insult / Minor insults / Moderate infraction / Non-post infraction (moderate) / Thread dumping
Six (6) points - Direct insult at another member / major infraction / Non-post infraction (major)
Ten (10) points - Act of criminality, or advocating thereof

The administrators and moderators also bear the right to issue warnings, temporarily suspend or ban posters for continued trolling or other serious misconduct (eg. professional spamming) even if the poster has not yet reached the maximum warning points or suspensions level. Other options if the above consequences do not seem adequate include placing the member in a moderation queue, which means all posts will have to be approved before they are posted to the board.

PRIVACY POLICY

All information obtained by the end user via the registration process is for internal purposes only and will not be sold to or shared with any third parties. However, if the end user participates in illegal activities and a court of proper jurisdiction orders U.S. Politics Online to release certain information about said user then we will act according to the law. Furthermore, no information will be released on threat of a lawsuit, attempted or actual intimidation, or due to any other reason except as notated in the first sentence of this paragraph. Nonetheless, keep in mind that the information we do have is very limited and generally only consists of the IP address a member uses.

  • Paris Climate Agreement Adopted, Unconditional Daesh Surrender Considered Imminent

    BEHOLD! The hippies have emerged, evidently no longer able to stand their own organic... earthiness, with a surefire, nonbinding, unenforceable scheme to save Mother Gaia from the scourge of mankind. The actual text is useless legalese, but since the New York Times speaks the language, they have translated...

    Here are some highlights of the agreement.

    • It calls for “holding the increase in the global average temperature to well below 2C above pre-industrial levels and to pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5C above pre-industrial levels, recognizing that this would significantly reduce the risks and impacts of climate change.”...

    • To achieve that goal, countries should “reach global peaking of greenhouse gas emissions as soon as possible, recognizing that peaking will take longer for developing country parties, and to undertake rapid reductions thereafter.” Advocates say this wording sends a clear message to the fossil-fuel industry that much of the world’s remaining reserves of coal, oil and gas must stay in the ground and cannot be burned.

    • The agreement acknowledges “the importance of averting, minimizing and addressing loss and damage associated with the adverse effects of climate change.” This was deemed crucial by poor and small-island countries that suffer the most from extreme weather and from long-term impacts like droughts. However, this provision “does not involve or provide a basis for any liability or compensation,” a point that wealthy nations, which did not want to be held financially liable for climate change, insisted on.

    • Ahead of the agreement, 186 countries submitted plans detailing how they reduce their greenhouse gas pollution through 2025 or 2030. The agreement requires all countries to submit updated plans that would ratchet up the stringency of emissions by 2020 and every five years thereafter, a time frame that the United States and the European Union urged. India had initially sought a 10-year review cycle.

    The deal requires a global “stocktake” — an overall assessment of how countries are doing in cutting their emissions compared to their national plans – starting in 2023, every five years.

    The deal requires countries to monitor, verify and report their greenhouse gas emissions using the same global system. The United States has insisted that an aggressive system of counting and verifying each nation’s emissions is crucial to the success of any plan. The United States had also pushed for the creation of an outside panel of experts – a sort of “carbon auditor” to verify nations’ emissions reductions. Developing countries, including China and India, had pushed for two separate accounting systems – a more stringent one for rich countries, a more lenient one for poor countries. The United States scored a victory with the inclusion of the single accounting system, but all the details of how it would work, including the creation of the outside verifying body, have been punted to the future.

    • The agreement sets up something called a “Capacity-Building Initiative for Transparency” to help developing countries meet a new requirement that they regularly provide a national “inventory report” of human-caused emissions, by source, and track their progress in meeting their national goals.

    The agreement, which takes effect in 2020, calls on nations to establish “a new collective quantified goal” of at least $100 billion a year in climate-related financing by 2020. It avoids a specific number, and even the $100 billion-a-year aspiration is mentioned in the “decision” part of the document, not the “action” section, to avoid triggering a review by the United States Senate. But it makes clear that the $100 billion — promised in 2009 in Copenhagen — is the bare minimum going forward.

    • When countries update their commitments, they will commit to the “highest possible ambition,” but the agreement does not set a numeric target. It acknowledges “common but differentiated responsibilities and respective capabilities, in the light of different national circumstances.” This language is essential to a country like India, which believes it will need some time before it can reach peak emissions, given the need to provide 300 million people with electricity.
    Naturally (as if they know any other way), the plan is completely devoid of concrete means of achieving such objectives, much less a way to pay for them. So in effort to help the hapless eco-hacks, here are some common sense suggestions that combined will actually achieve their stated goals. Nevertheless, I suspect they will spurn them in disgust as they do not actually treat humanity as an infectious disease to be isolated and eradicated.
    • Launch a coopitition among the developed nations to develop a functioning fusion reactor. Fusion has long been recognized as the Holy Grail of energy, and has been grossly underfunded for just as long. If we can solve the riddle, we will fundamentally lift mankind to a level only science fiction has been able to imagine.
    • In lieu of fusion, nuclear fission power has been a perfectly viable, carbon free power source for decades, and has been hamstrung for nearly as long by the truly scientifically ignorant. We should immediately engineer and mass produce new reactors, based on the thorium fuel cycle, which neither produce long term waste nor operates at high enough temperatures or pressures for a meltdown to be possible. Thorium is many times more abundant than uranium, and the best reactors will shut themselves down safely if just left alone. This technology alone can completely decarbonize our power grid in as little as a decade, for very little investment, and help make our heavy industries competitive again.
    • Encourage distributed energy production by home owners and appropriate small businesses. Many home owners and small business owners can produce all the energy they need with their very own solar, wind, or biofuel systems. Once such systems are paid for they provide decades of free energy, and many systems can be installed today and financed at a rate lower than the regular price of power. This frees them from the grid, which regardless of price will always be more expensive and less reliable do to the shear number of moving parts. At the same time, we have to acknowledge that trying to shoehorn all businesses into just the energy they can produce in house is ridiculous. An energy marketplace based on a smart grid can allow small producers to sell their free excess electrons to net consumers of energy.
    • Encourage efficiency and durability. The less energy you have to use, the less money you have to spend. Build things strong, once, so you use less power to create, operate, and recreate. Certain architectural choices can slash energy requirements dramatically, while leaving you far better able to shrug off whatever nature can dish out.
    • End the gasoline stranglehold on transportation fuels. Diesel (Bio or otherwise), LNG/CNG, Ammonia, and perhaps even Hydrogen are all better transportation fuels, not just for their emissions, but for their democratizing capabilities. While standard mass diesel and NG production and distribution lines are already well established, and can be greatly augmented with the proliferation of nuclear power, the production of Algae derived bio-diesels, captured or synthesized natural gas, biological nitrogen fixation, and the cracking of water into hydrogen and oxygen are all processes that can be viably replicated on a small scale to provide transportation fuel on the individual, family, and small business level. Additionally, all of these processes provide a valuable outlet for unpredictable peaks in solar and wind power, producing storable fuel to be burned by generators when the sun is obscured and the wind isn't blowing. Such generators can also be installed onto the growing fleet of electric vehicles to extend their range and flesh out their capabilities.
    • End the ban on fossil fuel exports. As contradictory as it might seem, cutting off fossil fuels prematurely will extend their use. As the developing world develops, they need fuel, and the cheaper it is, the faster they will develop. The objective is to get them to the point where they are economically, politically, and socially stable enough to support carbon neutral or carbon free sources, like solar, wind, and thorium, as quickly as possible. Simply cutting them off, or forcing them into the arms of less scrupulous suppliers, will make it worse, not better.
    • Expand the cargo and auto rail networks, reducing the number of trucks and long haul drivers on the roads, burning less fuel, and reducing wear and tear on vehicles and roads alike.
    • End ethanol requirements and CAFE fuel economy standards. Ethanol requirements burn perfectly good land that could be growing food, save nothing in emissions and damage engines. CAFE standards produce crappy, wasteful, disposable vehicles to stave off shortages that need not exist with a nuclear grid.
    • On the topic of agriculture, localize it. Encourage the establishment of distributed Controlled Environment Agricultural systems. Household Aquaponic & Microponic systems can provide the individual and family with much of the food, feed, fiber, and fuel that they need, without the need for fossil fuel based fertilizers, industrial monoculture, or the vast amount of fuel needed to transport it from one end of the country to the other. By raising crops indoors, and using smaller, more evenly distributed livestock on pasture, we free up vast tracts of monocultured land for settlement and more natural vegetation, which will actually draw CO2 out of the atmosphere.
    • Design urban and suburban transportation networks to enable a diversity of modes of transportation. While automobiles are likely to remain the most versatile, and thus the default mode of transportation, pedestrian and bike options should be just as viable. Sub grade parking should be used as much a possible to better utilize space.
    • Contrary to international schemes, urbanization isn't good for people or the environment. People are dumber in large numbers, and require more rules to avoid stepping on each others toes. Life is more expensive, and mass producing their sustenance is messier. Resurgent ruralization will better utilize land, and encourage families to be more self-sufficient, something that is much harder to do with the postage stamp sized plots found in town. Reconnecting people to both nature and their food source will make trashing it counterproductive, and allow the vast majority of natural ecosystems to coexist seamlessly with anthropologic ones.
    • In order to recapture carbon on a human timescale, we are going to have develop green thumbs. Planting forests where they do not exist means fundamentally changing the circumstances currently prevent forests from growing in the first place. Usually, its a shortage of water, and correcting that problem means harnessing waterways and rerouting them where they can do a greater good. NAWAPA, SEAWPA, TransAqua, the South-to-North Water Diversion Project, and the Siberian river reversal projects all represent continental scale engineering projects whose object is oasification of desert regions, which will draw carbon out of the atmosphere.

      A few arrogant people who think they can "guide" the rest.

      Because you see - THEY KNOW !!! ... they like to think they do.

      It's the same idiotic story told over and over throughout human history.

      A few "elites" think they know best and . . proceed to destroy everything with their delusions of grandeur.

      It's always certain types of charismatic psychopaths that the masses end up foolishly "following" to their deaths.

      .... here we go again .... the global cooling story didn't work, so they dreamed up something else.

        I remember going to corporate meetings and seeing things like this emerge as the result of the meeting. People looked at the meeting product, threw it in the trash and went about doing their jobs. It's a shame that so much time, energy, and fossil fuels were used on this debacle.

          One of the headlines is, "agreement signals the end of the fossil fuel era".

          Except there is an 800 pound ape sitting in the corner, and he got their attention, but chose to ignore his existence. And that is, there is absolutely NOTHING YET that can replace fossil fuels for energy, and unless we discover it, this agreement is as useless as teats on a boar hog. Just look at the energy being produced by non fossil fuels today, in the big picture, and the impossibility of replacing that energy production with current technology. No doubt, some day we will be able to replace fossil fuel for energy, but we simply cannot do it today. So given that fact, these elites are inbred to the point of being delusional. What it will do of course is to transfer wealth, what is left of it, from the working and middle class to the banking cabal and MNCs. It's just another scheme to scrape the last pennies from the pockets of average, non rich people, for the elites. This is just the latest way of doing that.

          What the world needs to be doing is sinking more research money into new technology that can replace fossil fuels, without the great dangers that come from dirty nuclear energy, that is much more risky than fossil fuels. Equating an oil spill, or co2 production which is a life sustaining gas, to what happens when inevitable earthquakes causes melt downs and radioactive pollution that last for thousands of years, making those areas uninhabitable deserts is not exactly the most intelligent way to replace fossil fuels. Co2 is natural, that level of radioactivity is not at all natural.

          This co2 deal, if indeed it is the major factor will eventually take care of itself, as it has done for the earths entire history. We live in a universe of cycles, and man cannot stop those cycles It's arrogance to even entertain that. Sea levels have risen before, and dropped. And the will continue to do so whether we are here or not.

          How exactly do these people plan on replacing fossil fuels? With what? Currently, it is just impossible. But that fact is not even considered. And that means there isn't any intelligence operating with the elites, which has always been a problem, regardless of era. So given the fact we have nothing yet that can take the place of such fuels, what is going on here? I smell a flow of money, from the middle, and the working class, into the hands of a few elites. And that has been the trend since neoliberalism raised its ugly head again. So, we will still have to use fossil fuels for energy, or civilizations crash and burn, but there is a new income stream, right? Flowing from all of us, into the hand of the elites. It's another scheme. It is the history of humanity. Whether we live under a dictator, a monarch or a so called democratic gov't.

          If this was not another scheme like globalization is, we would have seen something easy to get passed, the planting of new trees around the world. Sit back and watch what a herculean effort will come with this. You will not see it. For there is no way to create a new really big income stream with that.

            What the world needs to be doing is sinking more research money into new technology that can replace fossil fuels, without the great dangers that come from dirty nuclear energy, that is much more risky than fossil fuels. Equating an oil spill, or co2 production which is a life sustaining gas, to what happens when inevitable earthquakes causes melt downs and radioactive pollution that last for thousands of years, making those areas uninhabitable deserts is not exactly the most intelligent way to replace fossil fuels. Co2 is natural, that level of radioactivity is not at all natural.

            This co2 deal, if indeed it is the major factor will eventually take care of itself, as it has done for the earths entire history. We live in a universe of cycles, and man cannot stop those cycles It's arrogance to even entertain that. Sea levels have risen before, and dropped. And the will continue to do so whether we are here or not.

            How exactly do these people plan on replacing fossil fuels? With what? Currently, it is just impossible. But that fact is not even considered. And that means there isn't any intelligence operating with the elites, which has always been a problem, regardless of era. So given the fact we have nothing yet that can take the place of such fuels, what is going on here? I smell a flow of money, from the middle, and the working class, into the hands of a few elites. And that has been the trend since neoliberalism raised its ugly head again. So, we will still have to use fossil fuels for energy, or civilizations crash and burn, but there is a new income stream, right? Flowing from all of us, into the hand of the elites. It's another scheme. It is the history of humanity. Whether we live under a dictator, a monarch or a so called democratic gov't.

            If this was not another scheme like globalization is, we would have seen something easy to get passed, the planting of new trees around the world. Sit back and watch what a herculean effort will come with this. You will not see it. For there is no way to create a new really big income stream with that.

            Shhh, the libs are still feeling good.
