Whether you believe that climate change is man made or natural, isn't the issue. But billions upon billions of dollars are being spent on regulations and fuels everyday. But what about the rest of the world? If this is controllable, how much difference will we make if the rest of the world continues to do what they do? Are we throwing money away or prolonging the inevitable? This is a world issue, not a U.S. issue. What do you think?

Love ya, but I have to ask. If we are the greatest contributor to these hurricanes, why do they develope off the coast of Africa and head here? Shouldn't it be the other way around?
Well, as far as Sandy is concerned, it developed from a tropical wave into a hurricane cyclone in the west of the Carribean Sea. Most begin in the Atlantic or Carribean some in off the coast of Africa, but the surrounding atmosphere feeds it
Hurricanes occur due to the global temperature rising. Warmer waters cause more and stronger storms and hurricanes. It doesn't develop by the country omitting the worst, its a global thing.
Cody, yes that is true, but which country emits more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere? (at least in the past) Global warming came into being from the total emissions, yes, but some countries emit more fumes than others (cars, factories, etc.)
That's easy for you to say. You stand in front of thousands of coal miners and tell them to sacrifice their jobs for the safety of green energy jobs. I wouldn't want to be in your shoes.Green jobs and development would end now without coal miners.
Train manufacturers gave up their jobs for plane manufacturing, as well as whalers giving up their job for oil as opposed to whale oil. Change has to come with progress and its inevitable.
