Your stupid citation left out all the people in fossil fuel - it says approx 180,000 employed in fossil fuels, but the reality is:

"The Fossil Fuel Industry May Not Help the Planet, But It Employs Millions

Even using those restricted criteria, the fossil fuel business employed over 2 million people in America alone"

Debunking the conbot myth.


Is the Paris Accord Unfair to America?

We all know one way to divide a pie: give everyone an equal slice. For the atmosphere, that would mean calculating what quantity of greenhouse gases the world as a whole can safely emit up to a given date, and dividing that by the current population of the world. That yields everyone’s per capita share of the atmosphere’s capacity to absorb our greenhouse gases, up to the selected date.

But the world is divided into sovereign states, not individuals, and there is no way to assess each individual’s greenhouse-gas emissions. So we need to move to allocations for each country. To do this consistently with “equal shares,” we need to multiply the per capita share by the country’s population to reach its emissions quota.

By this standard, was the Paris accord unfair to the US? Hardly. The US currently has less than 5% of the world’s population, but emits nearly 15% of the world’s greenhouse gases. If fairness means that everyone’s slice of pie should be the same size, it is the US that is being unfair, by grabbing a slice that is three times bigger than it should have.

A different principle of fairness arises if we consider greenhouse gases as pollution, and apply the principle that whoever caused the pollution should pay to clean it up. The reason that climate change is a problem now is that over the past two centuries, some countries have been putting large amounts of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.

No country has emitted more greenhouse gases over this period than the US. That is a reason to require the US to make deeper cuts now than other countries must make, especially given that the US is continuing to emit greenhouse gases at a much higher per capita rate than other large emitters, such as China and India. If the older industrialized countries caused the problem, it seems reasonable to ask them to do the most to fix it.

No ISIS was not created by any vaccuum they were created by American tax dollars and gifts of weapons and training distributed by among others Americans with the assigned purpose of doing exactly what they are doing, murder and mayhem. These are western implaneted mercenary armies under the control and command of western powers. Any other explanation is baseless.

I'll also add that Obama did not pull out of Iraq, it just changed the weaponized lineup.

Living in close proximity to ones parents was once the powerfull constructive norm, and it will be again, families who stick together will become strong and survive trying to replicate the ideal boomer lifestyle in these hard economic times is suicide.

I prefer that it be calculated based on the actual area of a nation... That metric is just as fair as basing in on a per capita basis.

Sadly, places like Europe that have large populations packed into small areas won't see their specific bennie, therefore, there is pressure calculate it on some other metric.

That's all well and fine, but i figure that I'll measure my obligation based on actual area.

Kinda like a trial separation; during the trial, you can go out and shack-up with all kinds of floosies with the full knowledge that ya won't be going back to the old crone once the trial is over.

Read the post, Bonehead. I'm talking about new jobs. I's sure there were thousands of jobs for stagecoach drivers at one time, but they were replaced by drivers of motor vehicles. Fossil fuels are facing the same sad end. Millions of jobs now, but decreasing every year. All you have to do is look at the coal industry in the US and Canada to understand that.

As I heard on the radio this past weekend, the companies that supposedly "support" climate change actions are the ones who are leaving the countries involved, including Canada. Too funny!!

Actually, the coal industry might just be on the back-swing eventually (see Germany and other countries that are turning back to coal). If stupid Trudeau and his ilk would invest in Canada instead the 2.9 Billion they've promised to the corrupted UN (wonder whose pockets that'll go in but I digress), coal can be even greener than natural gas because they've already got technological processes that can "scrub" clean the burning of coal.


The process is currently expensive, but with investment in second generation technology, the price can come down and we not only can use the technology ourselves, along with NG, but sell it to places who use coal like China, India and the US. This would make the world a lot cleaner than any carbon tax would, but our politicians are too stupid the realize it firstly and secondly, it's all amount the money and nothing to do with climate change anyway so I wouldn't hold my breath.

I guess you aren't aware of the expansion going on at Fording or the reopening of Tumbler Ridge . Have you ever seen the Roberts Bank coal port ? It is not slowing down and a lot of coal fits into those 150 car trains .

I can tell that this entire issue has you extremely upset. Likely seething with rage

... Don't let it get to you muffin, in a year or 2 there will be another Accord that has no teeth and is entirely unenforceable
