It's not using science; it's deliberately misconstruing scientific language. I don't know how many people have pointed out to me that "evolution is just a theory", as though this somehow cast evolution into doubt.Myth wrote:It's the faith-based right's way of using science against us.

There's no way to PROVE IT (which isn't necessarily true but who needs facts when you can hire firms to do your dirty work for you) so REALLY it -can't- be an issue. It's the same as how we can't recreate the actual Big Bang in a lab, so we can't actually prove that the universe isn't six thousand years old and that the dinosaurs' fossils aren't the Devil playing tricks with us.
It's the faith-based right's way of using science against us.
I also enjoy Zal's statement that is, in short: "Well, we've fucked it all up, so let's not talk about that and just fix our ratio of it. If we only caused 20% of what's now happening, we should only have to "fix" 20%." Am I right?
And yeah, requiring corporations to go green is a really stupid fucking idea. I mean, the Rapture's just a few years away anyway, so wtf does it matter? And after all, we've fucked up the natural cycle of things so bad it can't possibly be fixed, so why bother?
PS. Requiring factories to NOT spew pollution into the atmosphere would hurt their bottom line. Money > Breathing.

The ice caps have been around for what would be a month of the Earth's lifetime, maybe the most recent 5-10 million years, no one really knows for sure. Claiming that is any indication of what the levels "ought to be" is laughable.
Explain how your measly few most recent "millennia" are a more natural state for the Earth than the eons preceding it. I say this not because I disagree, merely because I think you do an injustice by putting forward such a simple concept to explain the most complicated system we've ever encountered and quite frankly will never fully understand.
