There seems to be a political split when people express opinions about Global warming. But whether or not its true or a myth, I fail to understand why conservatives are not for measures to limit use of somethings that cause this “Global warming”.
Our history as a nation and as a people are full of instances where something a product or service was limited or controlled or outright banned because it was deemed dangerous and something happens, a new innovation takes its place more often than not, something better. In the case of Global Warming causes you have Coal, Oil etc.. all of which causes pollution, wars are literally fought over it etc.. why not cap or limit the use of these things causing so much damage so that a new innovative product can take its place. Let me put this another way. It took gas prices reaching 4+ dollars a gallon for companies to start seriously putting electrical cars on the market, or cars with much better gas mileage. Its not a stretch to assume that capping carbon would create a demand for other energy sources. Thereby creating companies who specialize in making wind turbines, solar panels, batteries, geothermal devices. Increased demand also creates increased competition leading to better and better devices and cheaper methods of producing those devices.
Bottom line. Keep sending our money to the middle east or other unsavory countries, not to mention the cost of wars we have fought in hopes of stableizing these regions or creating a new homegrown industry in new energy methods?
