This is a tired and ridiculous argument similar to this one that I use: "Well the engine will eventualy die no matter what so I'm not going to bother changing the oil." Or "the mildew in the shower always comes back so why bother cleaning it." If you are convinced that human created pollution has no bearing on global climate change then actually make that argument. Don't use tired excuses. You can also choose to ignore the fact that, on the face of it, pollution is NOT a good thing, regardless of the proof or lack therof that it is contributing to global warming. Maybe the earth can swallow it and maybe not. But it's kind of like littering. Mexico is covered with litter but California is pretty clean. Do you want to be the litter bug of the world?The Doctor said:Shhh! We can't let the fact that the Earth has routinely alternated between advancing continental glaciers and melting icecaps - long before Exxon, the Republican Party and the United States slow down the rush to demonize...
If we'd only had the Kyoto Protocol back in...oh...the Oligocene...we could have prevented all of that global warming and cooling. :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:
