POLL: What are your views on climate change?

    I have to think it’s pretty egotistical for the Human Race to think we can have that big an effect on the environment,especially considering every time a volcano erupts anywhere it throws more toxic gasses into the air than Humans do in 10 years.

    well just ask the teamsters about global warming. they are using the environment as an excuse to rid the ports of the owner/operator trucker saying we’re all heavy polluters and should be forced to purchase 2007 or later model tractors to stay in business. actually they don’t want us in business because as o/o truckers which fall under independent contractor status we make it harder for the union to organize the workforce in the direction they want. yes the teamsters are moving their california clean truck campaign to savannah,ga where they plan to take major action to eliminate the owner/operator trucker in the southeastern states. there are thousands of owner/operator truckers in savannah who stand to lose if they succeed with this madness. isn’t it wonderful having to fight the abundance crooked people just to be paid or stay in business and now the wolf himself shows up in sheep’s clothing whose group claims they only want to help us with our current trucking issues? yeah right!!!!!

    It’s funny, but I’ve been saying for years almost exactly what James is saying. One volcano belching like a redneck at the saloon on a Saturday night puts more sulfur dioxide, ash and carbon dioxide into the atmosphere than all the internal combustion engines on the planet. Not only that, but EVEN IF “global warming” exists, it’s only a part of the earth’s natural climactic cycles, and humans have no effect. Don’t believe it? Look at the history books. In the 16th and 17th centuries, England was so warm that there were vineyards. Ice caps melt and reform many times over thousands of years. It ain’t us, folks. It has nothing to do with us. Blame the sun and the earth’s slightly elliptical orbit. Quit watching the big three news networks with their leftist agenda, and use your own powers of logic.

    Since I already see two skeptical comments using the volcano argument, here is an article from the American Geophysical Union quoting a geochemist of the US Geological Survey on just that: http://www.agu.org/news/press/pr_archives/2011/2011-22.shtml

    Mr. Frapp has is correct and any one who cares to know the facts on this fraudulent move can find them. Those with something to gain of course will be proponents as they stand to gain financially. Then there is the sheeple crowd than paint their roofs white, etc., to be in the in crowd. It never ends, the rich get richer and the poor get dumber & poorer! Just check up and see all the rich dudes that own half of Nebraska, Montana, and other vast land holdings. It isn’t for cattle, oil, or corn. Its carbon credits they want to sell to anyone who needs them to keep the EPA from shutting them down. Yes! and Trucking is on their list…
