Conservation may limit global warming

Los Angeles Times article on researchers who are supporting carbon taxes, a ban on coal-fired power plants and an end to beachfront construction.

Dramatic worldwide climate changes can no longer be avoided, but there is still time to stave off the worst consequences of global warming, an international research team said Tuesday.

The scientists from 11 countries urged sweeping conservation measures to hold the expected increase in temperatures to no more than an average of 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit — less than half the expected increase if emissions of greenhouse gas and soot continue unabated.

Based on two years of study, the scientists called for bold actions, including carbon taxes, a ban on conventional coal-fired power plants and an end to beachfront construction worldwide.

But don’t these recommendations support the notion that global warming alarmists are really anti-growth left-wingers who want to see a curb on capitalism?  More taxes to help end global warming?  Come on.

    could very well be that the additional taxes would be stemming from

    “left-wingers” who are anti-growth, but truth is, they are right. we must

    work on this, because it is a true, and alarming, problem. work together

    left and right, now is the time!!!
