  • Carbon Footprint???

    Just looked up the terminology of "Carbon Footprint". A carbon footprint is “the total set of GHG (greenhouse gas) emissions caused directly and indirectly by an individual, organization, event or product” as taken from Wiki.

    Photosynthesis is "is a metabolic pathway that converts carbon dioxide into organic compounds, especially sugars, using the energy from sunlight." also taken from Wiki.

    Now, lets put these two together and see what we get, shall we? First, you reduce the amount of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) you produce as a person, which reduces the CO2 of a company, of a state, nation, and hopefully the world. If you consistently try to reduce the amount of CO2 in the air, you begin to starve plant life. Again, photosynthesis. How do we reduce greenhouse gasses? Let's stop paving projects, and plant trees. How about demolishing abandoned buildings, and planting flower gardens there instead?

    The amount of paved roads in America alone add up to 5.7 million miles. (source: http://wiki.answers.com/Q/How_many_m...here_in_the_US), and the circumference of the earth is roughly 25,000 miles. That means the amount of pavement we have would encircle the earth 228 times, or 11 trips to and from the moon. Why don't we spend money planting large amounts of highly photosynthetic plants along the shoulders of those roads?

    Just a thought...maybe I'm just thinking of a solution that might actually do something.

    I would point out that 35 THOUSAND scientists have signed a petition saying that the whole global warming thing is BS.

    That carbon FOLLOWS the warming period, not CAUSES it.

    I would also point out that earth-normal warming and carbon is good for plants. What do they breathe IN? Carbon dioxide. Warm? More growing season. Good for plants.

    I would also point out that sun-spot cycles are in rhythm with the earth's warming and cooling cycles. High sun spot activity - gets warmer. Low activity - gets cooler.

    The ice caps on mars were shrinking in the 90s. How many evil SUVs are there on mars?

    I would also point out that there have been almost NO sunspots since last summer. The "normal" cycle has not resumed. In another couple of years, they will be bleating about "the coming ice age" - just like they did in the 70s.

      Yea on the cover of TIME MAGAZINE there was a picture of the globe covered by ice sheets with only the tropics icefree. BUt beware the nuts call global warming "climate change" now because they know that is cyclic. "Climate change" allows them to claim victory either way it goes.
