    Don't know which part of the US you live in, but no place really escapes the damage, though some places will eventually have to be mostly abandoned.

    When I read the IPCC Report in 2007 it seemed like the US wouldn't be too bad, but looking at the 2009 US Climate Assessment and the new draft one that isn't really true.  It is frightening, actually.  And the changes are coming much, much faster than forecast in 2007 by the IPCC.  In 10-20 years the world will be a very different place, not that good.  

    So every reduction counts.  Whether it is the Chinese or us or the Europeans.  And a great many changes aren't really going to send us to the stone age.

    The scientific uncertainty doesn't mean that climate change isn't actually happening.

    •  So let's ruin the US economy even further (0+ / 0-)

      to pay for the irresponsibility of the rest of the world.  I see.

      How much more do you think the US can do to reduce emissions without massive investments in nuclear?  If your predictions of unlivable conditions are ten years away, then it's way too late as it is.  Some windmills and pitiful output of solar so far have proven to be a drop in the bucket compared to our energy needs.
