      In my opinion, the only way to see real change is to provide financial incentives. If fuel-efficient cars are more expensive than gas-guzzlers, people are going to get what they can afford (even if gas will drive the price up in the long-run). Populations, in general, just aren't capable of combining in an idealistic effort in which they don't personally gain. Even simple things like charging 5 cents per plastic bag at the grocery store make a big difference, because the cashiers are forced to ask, instead of using 20 super-harmful plastic bags for 24 items.

      I'm not saying I have the solution of how to do this, just my two cents.

        Do you ever ask yourself why the Green cars are so expensive? All the green technology is very expensive to purchase solar panels,Windmills, all just a scam to get more money from the easily led!

          Are you serious?  Or are you really just 20 years old and believe whatever 'rightist' conspiracy theory pulp you read?

          In my practice, solar panels and windmills are viable ways to produce energy for heat and light.  And they are becoming cheaper as technologies all the time.

          This whole thread reads like a bad comedy act.  Funny, though.

        It's not that they are not "capable," it's that they just aren't that stupid (usually & unless someone has a gun to [or inside] their heads).

    The first thing we do is do away with all religions and belief in a higher authority.

    Once this is accomplished, we would be able to make huge advances in medical research(with regards to all diseases), science mastery and our philosophy about the way we view our existence.

    These things are fundamental to our way of life and requires nothing, including the influence of religion, to stand in the way of progress.

    Aging could be cured, which opens talks about "Immortal"ism among humankind.

    Diseases would be non-existent, because cures would be developed as fast, as they arrive.

    Space Exploration would explode huge.

    Computer technology would skyrocket.

    So many things could happen, IF humans got over their individual belief in a higher authority and became their own authority, which is rightfully the case to begin with.

      This is not the religion forum. Take your banal bigotry there.

        It may not be a religious forum, but it's relevant.

        The topic says and I quote "What can you do to reduce global warming?"

        Well, it's my purpose to eliminate mysticism, which is directly linked to "religion" and that is directly related to people's inability to grow and understand how valueable life is really.

        So, before you begin bashing me.

        Get some clarity, first.

        DO NOT JUDGE what you do not understand.

        And, if you were of any sort of "religion", you now need to go see your priest- you've just sinned.

        Enjoy.

          religion is the only reason why airplane technology is still commercially accepted. People accept that they need to pray before and after landing so if that works they are ok with it.

          They have no clue that Schauberger, tt brown and even searl had blue prints for flight and energy sources that don't pollute and also never crash. They have no clue because they are sleeping in a religious state. Polluting the planet is only a dream. Wake UP

    I replaced my gas guzzling mustang that I loved with an economy car.

                  Yes, I would hate for him to get in his big jet airplane and come over here.  He would definitely find a way to tax me more when he saw how much my dog farts...talk about a carbon footprint.big_smile

    What can we as humans do to reduce global warming?  Little or nothing - the more I read up on it, the more I'm coming to the conclusion that global warming is not man made, and any man made component to it is dwarfed by other things like natural climatic cycles (of which we understand only a fraction as yet). 

    It makes sense to reduce our energy consumption so that we have as little dependence on imported oil/gas as possible.  But the whole idea of carbon trading, carbon capture and so forth?  It's bonkers - it's akin to King Canute standing on the seashore and telling the waves to go back.  I view carbon trading as yet another financial "bubble" in the making, in which a few people will make a lot of money out of the rest of us poor saps.

    I've had a good rant here.  I feel better now. smile

    Absolutely nothing. However we should be concerned with maintaining a healthy enviroment and ecology. egiv makes a good point when he/she ties economics to it. As long as it's cheaper to be dirty, things will be dirty. 
    Al Gore has created an enviromental scare for political purposes.
    You can't tax and spend your way to a cleaner enviroment.
    The same line was going around in the 70's except they were predicting an ice age.

    Update: the UK Advertising Standards Authority is to investigate a government-sponsored climate change TV advertisement featuring a bed time story about the catastrophic effects of too much CO2 in the atmosphere (think cartoons of drowning rabbits and kittens and you get the picture).  Apparently it's had 350 complaints from viewers who, like me, don't take kindly to the government spending taxpayers' money on blatant propaganda.

    I don't watch much TV so haven't seen it, but if you want to read more, here's a link:
