Both shale gas and conventional natural gas have a larger greenhouse gas footprint than do coal or oil, especially for the primary uses of residential and commercial heating.

Dr. Robert Howarth, a professor of ecology and environmental biology, came to this conclusion after assessing the best available data and analyzing greenhouse gas footprints for both methane (including shale gas and conventional gas) and carbon dioxide over a timescale of 20-years following emissions.

 

Replacing coal, oil with natural gas will not help fight global warming, expert argues

‘Insane, Disgusting’ and ‘Epic Treachery’: NSA Spied on Climate Talks

‘Obama admin. clearly never wanted Copenhagen talks to work,’ says Bill McKibben following latest NSA revelations concerning climate talks

 

So when are the millions of “Democratic” (sic) Party apologists going to shut the fuck up for a change?  The “change we need,” is for you assholes to shut the fuck up, because you’re the party of corruption, deception, illegal spying, support for terrorism in Syria, Libya and points beyond…

We need real democracy in this police state / imperial behemoth.  I will only ever vote third party / independent.  I don’t vote for evil, no matter how “lesser” they pretend it to be.

In case passing readers don’t understand why the Liar in Chief would sabotage the global warming initiatives, it has a lot to do with all that natural gas FRACKING that the administration loves so dearly. America will profit greatly, becoming a net gas exporter and if the water reserves in the aquifers are all polluted, then oh well.  Obama Inc. loves fracking, loves the natural gas industry and so global warming will have to be spun away for a while.

This is truly scary shit that I hadn’t heard about.  The “Permian Extinction” resulted from a massive volcanic release that warmed the earth by 6 degrees Celsius.  That warming led to massive releases of methane from the oceans and permafrost which doubled the temperature gain, killing off 95% of species on earth.

Scientists say we are already at the same levels of carbon release as that volcano.

Sam Simon, Terminally Ill ‘Simpsons’ Co-Creator Vows to Give Away Fortune

“Simon: I want medical experiments on animals stopped. They don’t do anything, and they don’t work. Veganism is an answer for almost every problem facing the world in terms of hunger and climate change. It helps people’s health. Meat is the biggest greenhouse gas producer. There’s also the cruelty and suffering aspect.”
