Points to ponder. . .
1. Global Warming or Climate Change is hardly perceptible. It is Not really an important issue. The Facts are that the average global temperature has gone up (only!) one degree centigrade in the last 100 years, and the rate has been steady and linear. Likewise, ocean levels have risen inches in the last 100 years. Carbon dioxide is not a pollutant. Carbon monoxide is. Methane could go either way, depending on the source (cows or industry).
2. However, energy conversation, and replacing fossil fuels with renewables should be a very high priority, for many reasons, including pollution, reliability, safety (think Chernobyl) and conservation of non-renewables. I would like to see solar electric panels on every house and building in the state and nation. There is no reason to waste sunlight energy that would end up as waste heat on these roofs. It is a fact that installing today's solar panel technology would repay itself in a few years.
