The Global Warming problem

The problem with global warming isn't as much what is causing it as it is what the recommended remedies for it are. Whether it's man made, or a natural occurrence, almost makes no difference. The global warming alarmists are taking us down a road that we need to understand and make every attempt to get heading in the right direction. It's easy to get into the argument on whether it's man made or not, or if it's even happening (not all that apparent in the last decade), but when we do that we lose track of these absurd remedies the alarmists have come up with.

For instance, read what George F. Will has to say about The Biofuel Follies over at Newsweek.
  • To avoid drilling for oil in ANWR, the planet savers evidently prefer destroying forests that absorb greenhouse gases.

Make a note that in developing our biofuels we produce almost as much greenhouse gas emissions as we do using what we're trying to replace. And, we also run up the price of food as we take that source and try to convert it to fuel while we destroy forests which naturally take CO2 out of the atmosphere.
