Obv countries like Eng and USA who already own a lot of oil have less incentive to switch - but the technology to massively reduce the co2 output is also available.
One click isn't too bad, is it?
I am all for switching to alternative energy, but the whole point of this thread was is it really possible to downsize C02 levels in the atmosphere by half? 45 TRILLION dollars is a huge sum of money and I just don't think it is possible in such a short amount of time to throw 45 trillion dollars by the year 2050 to cut C02 levels by half.
They will definately be reduced by then, rather or not nations across the world use this plan or others, but 45 trillion dollars is too much.
I really don't see why people think that if we drill for more oil, that we still aren't developing and researching new alternative fuels.
While the U.S. can't drill more oil in the Gulf since the 80's, we got countries like India and China starting to set up negotiations to drill oil in the Gulf.
Oil prices are getting to be ridiculous and we need to drill more of our own oil to reduce these prices while we are developing alternative fuels.
"When I hear athletes call themselves warriors, it does bother me a little bit. When I think of a warrior, I think of the Marines I've led in combat, those Marines that sacrificed so much...no showers, little food, no contact with their family, all for their love for their brother Marine and for their love for their country. That's a warrior, willing to lay his life on the line. I've had Marines that have laid their lives on the line for the man next to him, and for their family and country. That's a warrior. The guy who goes into some athletic contest who has no war experience, in my eyes, really has no right to call himself that. That's a coveted thing to call someone, and that's what I call my Marines. Those are warriors." - Brian Stann
