Farking Canuck: Slam1263: So, has Cananananda started to out smoke stack scrubbers on their power plants yet?Or was Acid Rain just another non issue once the US jumped through the hoops?I love it when idiots point to acid rain, y2k and the ozone layer as non-issues when, in reality, they are scientific and political success stories. The experts in the field warned of dangers and proposed solutions, politicians and companies heeded the warnings and implemented actions to mitigate the damages and all the costs associated with the damages.This should be the case with AGW but the anti-science crowd took their cues from the big tobacco trials of the 70's and played the "you can never be 100% sure" card to delay any action.

Slam1263: Did you have a point??Yes. My point is thus; you are a hypocrit.In that, if the datum prove your point, it's OK, but if it doesn't it's not.Maybe even calling you a hypocrit is too extreme, as would using the term idiot to describe you.Church of AGW zealot is a more apt description.As I stated, I don't put much stock in others religious ideas. AGW, too me, is just another quasi-scientific religion, much like Christian Scientist, and Scientologist.As for the Acid Rain, Y2K, and other issues, I am old enough to have been able to fleece the followers. Those predictions were proven, by time itself, to be invalid. The US spent over one trillion dollars on Acid Rain, to protect America's Hat from extinction, and you Norks spent squat to protect yourselves, or your Betters in the south. Fairly typical re ...
