Question by jocksnguis: Imconfused (governments and attempt to reduce production of c02)?
According to the counter-documentary to al gore’s “an inconvinient truth”. Scientists say that the C02 output produced by countries is just a small percentage to whats considered the biggest contributor to c02 namely the big blue oceans..
Here in holland the government is raising the taxes every year on numerous new things they can come up with in name of saving our eco-system, while it isnt sure we are the biggest cause the global warming. Though we do add to it, but not that much..
In parrallel while we (the citizens) still try our best to reduce car usage and cut back on energy consumption and pay for dim-energy saving lights, and they even hand out fines of we don’t,
they, the government built 2 extra coal-burning energy-plants.
Wich is one of the dirtiest and most environmental unfriendly but low cost and high energy-productive ways of producing juice for energy consumption..
Do you think governments maybe
..use this “truth” whether tue or not, but still use it as “A truth” or better put as an “excuse” to take more money from us citizens by giving “us” guilt feelings and putting the weight and the responsibillity of the eco on our shoulders and
let *us* even out the balance on the eco-system while they take more and more money so they can use it for other things like loewring state-debt etc??
Do you think what they do is wrong?

Actually it is sure that we are the biggest contributor to global warming, or at least about as sure as one can be in science.
We know that the extra CO2 that is causing the warming comes from us.
