    Climate stuff Timeline??

    Here's an interesting article.

    See more at the link https://www.theguardian.com/environm...medium=twitter

    Excerpt:

    For more than 50 years, the petroleum industry and politicians have been warned about the climate risks of burning fossil fuels. Yet the top 20 fossil fuel firms have continued to expand and have been behind a third of all carbon emissions since 1965. This timeline shows who knew what and when, and how they communicated or obscured the threat to the public.
    We are all brothers and sisters in humanity. We are all made from the same dust of stars. We cannot be separated because all life is interconnected.

    I could say for years you have been warned about being a goofball.

    Should my peculiar warning to you be heeded?
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.


    I pledge allegiance to the Constitution as written and understood by this nation's founders, and to the Republic it created, an indivisible union of sovereign States, with liberty and justice for all.

    Believe the late 1960's is when the automakers started installing emission control devices/designs on all new cars. And the technology has improved every year since then.

    Guess i'm sort of missing the point the thread OP is trying to make? Air quality has certainly not been ignored...

    Winters are colder than anything less than an ice age. We, on the other hand, are still in the 80"s.
    Liberals are a clear and present danger to our freedom and our society and our morals.
