      • here is what bothers me most about the global warming freaks, lets say GW is true then why send all the jobs and production from this country that has regulations to countries that will global warm 5X as fast, after all it is a globe why not relax the regulations somewhat and reduce total global warming. What do they have to gain by pushing an agenda that is unproven and losing us many jobs when their efforts produce the opposite of what they claim they are fighting for???

    • "If global warming causes massive crop losses"

      Then I will plow up my back yard and plant a vegetable/fruit garden that will sustain my needs. One of the greatest attributes of human beings is that they can adapt. I can take care of myself.

      BTW: I don't need the government's help.

    • More importantly, ..., DON'T EVER KEEP MORE THAN 2 TO 3% OF YOU EQUITIES IN ONE STOCK!

    • You know what, your question is not complete or useful. Other factors need to be considered. Take a read:

    • Global warming (if it exists!), will cause more hurricanes! Either way, the world is not going to be using less oil after China and Africa and India get going!

    • So sit back and continue to enjoy. Oil is going up or is stable. Ethanol on the other hand is man made and is supported by this government. At some point in time it will stop supporting and corm, maze, will again become human and animal food.

      • Every time that I think of Al Gore reaping all of the grant money and the Anointed One running the country, independent of the input from the House and Senate, it makes me cringe.

        I lived under FRD's administration, and all since him and have never seen such a red herring as global warming and all of the BS about how we are running out of oil....So we must distill our food supply in order to run cars that are being antiquated by the electric cars produced by General Moters, who is eating us alive in taxes.
        Electric cars use electricity that is 80% produced by Carbon fuel.....shesshhhh. It's kinda like saying we dont need farmers and their cows....we get our milk products at the local gorcery store.
        People still believe the politicians who push this crapp and will vote for the same ones who tell the lies....Simpletons, all.

    • Nothing you can do. Long term climate change has little or nothing to do with human activity. How do the tree huggers explain climate 950 - 1250 and then 1350 - 1850.

      The Medieval Warm Period (MWP), Medieval Climate Optimum, or Medieval Climatic Anomaly was a time of warm climate in the North Atlantic region, that may also have been related to other climate events around the world during that time, including in China,[1] and other countries[2][3][3][4][5][6][7] lasting from about AD 950 to 1250.[8] It was followed by a cooler period in the North Atlantic termed the Little Ice Age. Some refer to the event as the Medieval Climatic Anomaly as this term emphasizes that effects other than temperature were important.[9][10]

      Despite substantial uncertainties, especially for the period prior to 1600 when data are scarce, the warmest period of the last 2,000 years prior to the 20th century very likely occurred between 950 and 1100, but temperatures were probably between 0.1 °C and 0.2 °C below the 1961 to 1990 mean and significantly below the level shown by instrumental data after 1980. The heterogeneous nature of climate during the Medieval Warm Period is illustrated by the wide spread of values exhibited by the individual records.[11] Warmth in some regions appears to have matched or exceeded recent levels of warmth in these regions, but globally the Medieval Warm Period was cooler than recent global temperatures.[8]
