    Well then I should start paying $25.00/Gal., instead of $4.00, so they can have even more money to fix the planet and then when I come to your house to do plumbing it will be $600.00 for the first Hr. to walk through the door...and you can be the first one walking, instead of driving, as an example to others as to what everyone should be doing...

    When they see you doing this the World will all follow your leed...

    I wonder what my carbon footprint will be when I make my Scotch Eggs...

    How about you pay $1-2 more per gallon to make you feel better & I get that as a discount on what I buy ?
    and you can be the first one walking, instead of driving, as an example to others as to what everyone should be doing...
    When will you guys get it? Global warming is not about "choices" or "freedom to make your own decisions". It's about the need for regulation forcing you to do something because you don't get the big picture and your choices hurt others.

    Just like healthcare. It's not about whether you decide to give to charities and churches or not. Government needs to take tax from you and provide regardless.

    Choice doesn't work on its own. Freedom doesn't work on its own. Reagan got it wrong. Because the market fails, Government and regulation are also needed. Or did you just sleep through the financial crisis?

    And I already do pay $600.00 for the first Hr for my plumbing (well, $500 if the truth be told) which is why I started to DIY and visit this Merry site.

    Plus, if I don't have to call you out in the van that does my bit for the environment too!

    We drive about 6000 miles a year and prefer to use public transport.

    We drive a 2000 Rav4. It has a 2 liter engine and on a good day will do close to 30 miles to the gallon.

    You can take home drywall in it, if you know a trick or two.

    We looked at the RAV4, nice vehicle - a friend owns one
    I drive less then 3500 miles year
    It was kind of funny another site I was on a guy was ranting & raving about people driving big trucks
    He owned a Prius & drove 25,000+ miles a year
    I pointed out that even with his gas efficient vehicle he used almost 2x the gas that I used

    I hope it gets so hot in my area that it literally burns the hair off my skull.

    I won't hold my breath on that, and for those with no amount of age behind them...where was this nonsense back in the 50's, 60's, 70's...the 80's when 100 degree temperatures were the norm in my area and above that in florida, years ago.


    HMMMMMMM????


    Why wasn't that global warming then? HMMMMM???

    Nor I for the existence of God. That doesn't mean it is not real.

    Or perhaps it does?

    Close the churches. Convert them into apartments.

    And start up the cars.

    At least we've established scientifically that the Earth was not created in seven days. And that the dinosaurs existed. And that man descended from a common ancestor with the apes. I keep meeting people here that even doubt those things.

    We owe a great deal to science. Else all we'd know would be the preachers' teachings. And perhaps, even, global warming.
