EPA chief wants scientists to debate climate on TV

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is in the early stages of launching a debate about climate change that could air on television challenging scientists to prove the widespread view that global warming is a serious threat, the head of the agency said.

The move comes as the administration of President Donald Trump seeks to roll back a slew of Obama-era regulations limiting carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuels, and begins a withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement - a global pact to stem planetary warming through emissions cuts.

"There are lots of questions that have not been asked and answered (about climate change)," EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt told Reuters in an interview late on Monday.

"Who better to do that than a group of scientists... getting together and having a robust discussion for all the world to see," he added without explaining how the scientists would be chosen.

I think they are fighting for their jobs. EPA has tarnished it's reputation with the American people. Trump rightfully wants to cut their funding, and their importance in our economy. Time to get regulations out of the way of business, and get America moving forward once more. EPA has been a proven killer of business. Now it is time to kill the EPA.

No one will listen to them.

Aww a mans point of view... Refreshing..

Yet to little regs lead to worst situations as business has been known to not care about the environment and will use all the resources without caring for any damage done..
Thinking fresh water turned to sewage, trees mowed down, for more over priced town homes and houses, mid-west farmers emptying the under-ground aquifers.. Just to name a few..

Might be why the EPA went over board while it had a Progressive President.... At least this man thinks so..

Also plenty do listen to them most are Liberals.. But for some reason most notably anger and hate have made these people non person to some on the other side of the aisle. Which is so wrong as we need each other to advance America forward..


So some give and take is needed..

As of 2017 you are wrong

and

NEW YORK (Reuters) - More than 60 percent of Americans would like to see the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's powers preserved or strengthened under incoming President Donald Trump, and the drilling of oil on public lands to hold steady or drop, according to a Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll released on Tuesday.

POLITICO-Harvard poll: Majority opposes EPA cuts, Paris pullout

A majority of Americans oppose President Donald Trump's plan to slash EPA's budget and the possible withdrawal from the Paris climate change agreement, but his agenda continues to get high marks from Republicans, according to a new poll released Tuesday from POLITICO and the Harvard T.H. School of Public Health finds.

Sixty percent of people surveyed, including 65 percent of Independents and 81 percent of Democrats, do not support Trump's proposed 31 percent funding cut to EPA. But 68 percent of Republicans are in favor of the reduction to the agency's coffers.

More polls?

We don't know enough about any of your polls to say much about anything. You can make a poll do anything you want it to, by a few simple things.

I don't believe your MSM garbage polls. Never again will many of us.

Yet if a poll sides with their line of thought then it is a good poll worth believing.

You guys can play with any fantasy you care to.

I am just saying there are lots of people who will no longer put any stock in polling. We just say how wrong they can be, and how they can be used to get any result you care to sqew the data towards, and how they are used to perpetuate lies by the left.

Climate change is a left wing issue. And the left just got caught in huge lies.

So don't be surprised to here some don't trust any polls done by the left.

This has already been addressed on television.

https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q...=0&FORM=VDQVAP

The Koch Brothers funded a red team - blue team study conducted at the UC Berkley and to their dismay the red team (AGW skeptics) were firmly convinced the planet is getting warmer at the projected rates by the climate change models establishing that the scientific models are highly accurate, and that man is responsible for the climate change.

This is the same conclusion that 97% of all climatologists have reached. The 3% of scientists that don't agree with AGW are not challenging AGW in the scientific community but instead are just unwilling to agree with it.

Unless there is some science shattering revelation that changes the laws of physics the scientific acceptance of anthropogenic global warming theory (AGW) is virtually absolute leaving no further room for debate outside of the scientific community where no one is actually challenging the climate models.

The only question is what is the US, the single largest producer of CO2 pollution of any nation since the 1950's and the highest per capita CO2 polluter of all major nations today, going to do to curb our atmospheric pollution?

This has nothing to do with any other nation. it's a United States issue. The excess CO2 (i.e. CO2 in excess of what the plant life of the United States can recycle back into a solid state) we're allowing is a violation of the Natural Rights of the people of all other nations on the planet.

Ironically "green jobs" are the fastest growing economic group in the United States. It's at an 18% growth rate and this year should add over 600,000 manufacturing and service sector jobs. We can compare this to the declining number of all jobs related to the coal industry where about 50,000 are involved in mining of coal with another 60,000 in other coal related jobs such as transportation and energy production at coal fired power plants. The number of coal jobs is not declining because of regulations adversely affecting the burning of coal but instead is being driven by economic forces because natural gas is much less expensive to use as a fuel.

"Going Green" by dramatically reducing the CO2 pollution by the United States is where the light shines because "Green" is not just the color of a better environment it's also the color of money.
