You can't ignore the ppm of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, its increasing way beyond reason, and it lasts for thousands of years. It increases temperature. The more fossil fuel we burn, the more people we kill with the other pollutants present in it. But the costs of moving cities away from coastlines will be the biggest cost of climate change, more even than all the cost of all the wars on earth.
Need proof, its all around you, but China's cities are a good example, their fossil fuel burning kills many thousands every year, and the smoke knows no boundaries and doesn't grant immunity to any child.
As far as Corzine signing a bill to save people from dying,,, it also will create an explosion of jobs in the solar and wind industries as well as jobs in installation of same. Equally strong job maker will be the new emphasis on efficiency programs that could easily employ several hudred thousand nationwide. No amount of oil drilling in the US will change the price of gas or decrease our national security vulnerability that oil represents. The efficiency standards for cars that would have made a difference were fought by republicans tooth and nail throughout this crisis, until they finally passed a weak cafe standard recently. By not passing this earlier, they made us more dependent, they saw the price of gas skyrocketing and did nothing.
The republicon tax credits offer $100,000 tax credits is you buy a hummer, ony a couple thousand if you buy a hybrid. Your party is guilty of wanting to continue to poison our lungs and water and food, and the treason of wanting to keep us in an eternal war to benefit oil companies. You are a fool, and you will always be able to find fools to agree with your propaganda, especially when Exxon is paying them $10,000 every time they write a story or open their pie holes.
You somehow think that the founder of the weather channel has some great relevance as he speaks against the consensus of many thousands of real climate scientists (99.7%), like Jim Hansen at NASA. Your president , vice president, and party are simply oil workers, doing what they are told, which is to lie and delude others at the entire county's expense.
