"climate change is real. We need to drastically reduce greenhouse emissions."

As usual, we construct our scientific argument like someone who drives along and sees empty beer cans, drives some more and sees an empty wine bottle, and then a mile later he sees an accident and comes to the conclusion the driver was drunk.

A CO2 study was done at MIT many years ago that showed the increase of temp relative to CO2 retention requires an exponential growth in the concentration of CO2. Yet, since this is their only hammer, they keep returning to it time and again to beat their 'nail'.

We've already seen that the scientists referred to above have been caught red-handed 'cooking the books'. Al Gore, as an owner of the Carbon Trading Bourse, stands to make millions so he's hardly a disinterested party. Obama re-tasked NASA to muslim outreach so we cant trust NASA's scientists as being politically independent either. NOAA? Another political tool.

What I see time and again is this rush to punish those of us who have to drive to work every day. Where are functional commuter alternatives? Before the government starts punishing people for not using alternatives that don't exist, perhaps they should:
1) find out what the real causes are (solar activity?)
2) tell me what they're going to do to force China and India to 'play along' because they pollute on a mammoth scale with impunity
3) tell when I'm going to be able to take mass transit to work.
4) tell me why were spending $477.41 million annually to support Polar research centers ( http://antarcticsun.usap.gov/features/contenthandler.cfm?id=2366) when I hear seniors screaming about cuts to healthcare?

A significant part of Wilson Co. works at Lackland. IF I were to try to take VIA, I would have to first drive to Elmendorph to get to a VIA line, then ride all the way to downtown, then out to the HW90 transit center.. and then go no further because there is no connecting bus service into Lackland. So, I could spend 2 1/2 hours to get NOWHERE. IF our government were serious, it would establish an hourly commuter express to Lackland and take 1/3 of the cars off 181.

Doesn't VIA get tax revenue from the state & federal government? When you go into San Antonio and spend money, isn't a portion going to VIA? Why does VIA get to blow us off?

Yea, until the government stops shucking bull and starts leading by action, I think I'll keep smelling a rat.
