Global Warming

Check the comments concerning global warming. I don’t want this site to be a political forum. I would welcome a scientific forum. I’m qualified to moderate.

That’s one of the great things about comics, at least the way I do it. It’s all make believe. You can forget the problems of the real world for a few moments.

    Very well put, Bud. What I like best about your comics is that they are not so far removed from reality. They are extremely logical, in fact. In that sense they are very real.

    Imagine if any of todays politician would say the following:

    There is no strife, no prejudice, no national conflict in CO2 emissions as yet. Its hazards are hostile to us all. Its conquest deserves the best of all mankind, and its opportunity for peaceful cooperation may never come again. But why, some say, the CO2 emissions? Why choose this as our goal? And they may well ask, why climb the highest mountain? Why, 35 years ago, fly the Atlantic? Why does Rice play Texas?

    We choose to achieve no CO2 emissions in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard; because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one we intend to win, and the others, too.

    I think I’ve heard something similar before

      What was the original quote? I was at my local Elks Lodge yesterday, and there was a woman there who said that China is so much worse than we are, so why should we do anything. It’s exactly the same nonsensical argument that I’ve heard from several other people. I wonder where they heard it.

        From J.F. Kennedys speech 1962 about landing a man on the moon in a decade. A very impossible goal at that time but with incredible stubbornness and belief in the impossible they succeeded.

        There is no strife, no prejudice, no national conflict in outer space as yet. Its hazards are hostile to us all. Its conquest deserves the best of all mankind, and its opportunity for peaceful cooperation may never come again. But why, some say, the Moon? Why choose this as our goal? And they may well ask, why climb the highest mountain? Why, 35 years ago, fly the Atlantic? Why does Rice play Texas?

        We choose to go to the Moon! We choose to go to the Moon…We choose to go to the Moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard; because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one we intend to win, and the others, too.[11]
