    Name-calling? Nice
    Wait are you saying there are no natural disasters? Or natural environmental disasters?
    I was asking if the fact that crude oil naturally oozes from the Earth's crust somehow makes us spilling 5 million barrels into the GOM ok? And that was just one. https://www.noaa.gov/education/resou.sts/oil-spills
    No energy form will be 100% clean. Even nuclear or "New Clear"(Thx Turbine!) has issues with extraction and waste but are renewables cleanER?, that is hard to argue against.

    Made the Turn to Pascagoula way too late or early depending on your point of view!

    Man's contribution to greenhouse gases is 6% or thereabouts. Approximately 94% comes from the our planet. Yet the "progressives" are focusing their energy on the 6% to the detriment of many. Where's the focus on the 94%? Why are they not trying to increase the earth's albedo or plant more trees. Why do they dislike nuclear energy?

    For those interested, Google Eavor and take a look at what they are doing. Their Eavor-Loop is a closed-loop geothermal energy extraction system.

    Yes 5 million gallons of crude oil in the ocean is perfectly okay. How about all these toxic batteries, solar panels and windmill graveyards? You know tainting our water system? Or what about all the birds they kill? The animal habitat they are destroying? On top of all of that itís not even practical. At what cost should we all pay to make you feel better about yourself?

    The claim that human activities contribute only 6% to greenhouse gases, with the remaining 94% coming from natural sources, is not supported by current scientific consensus. According to NASA and other reputable sources, human activities, such as burning fossil fuels and deforestation, significantly contribute to greenhouse gas emissions, which have risen dramatically since the Industrial Revolution. These emissions are considered the primary driver of anthropogenic climate change.

    NASA provides an overview of human activities and their impact on greenhouse gas emissions.
    NASA - Climate Change: How Do We Know?

    The United Nations provides data and reports on global greenhouse gas emissions, including contributions from various sectors such as energy, industry, agriculture, and transportation.
    United Nations - Greenhouse Gas Emissions

    The EPA details the sources of greenhouse gas emissions in the United States, including transportation, electricity production, industry, and more.
    EPA - Sources of Greenhouse Gas Emissions

    The IPCC's latest assessment report provides comprehensive information on the human influence on the climate system, including greenhouse gas emissions and their impacts.
    IPCC - Climate Change 2021: The Physical Science Basis

    While natural processes do emit greenhouse gases, human activities have intensified these emissions, leading to widespread environmental impacts. Environmental efforts often prioritize reducing human-induced emissions because they are within our control and can be mitigated through policy and technological advancements.

    Regarding the focus on reducing human-induced emissions versus natural sources like increasing Earth's albedo or planting more trees, environmental strategies often incorporate a combination of approaches. Planting trees and enhancing Earth's albedo are indeed part of broader climate solutions aimed at carbon sequestration and mitigating the heat-absorbing effects of greenhouse gases.

    Concerning nuclear energy, opinions vary within the environmental community. Some support nuclear energy as a low-carbon alternative to fossil fuels, while others raise concerns about safety, waste disposal, and environmental impacts associated with nuclear power plants.

    Innovative technologies like the Eavor-Loop, a closed-loop geothermal energy extraction system developed by Eavor Technologies, represent promising alternatives in the transition to renewable energy. Such technologies contribute to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by harnessing sustainable energy sources.

    you hit the trigger word . . . pay . . . they like the pay they get from the gubment at the get go to waste the gubment money . . . they get their money and get out before the need for the graveyards arise, before the habitat is destroyed . . . did someone post scam earlier, all of this clean energy is noting but a scam to get thier hands on gubment funding from the beginning . . .

    Efforts are underway to address these through recycling and responsible disposal. Companies like Tesla have made strides in battery recycling, aiming to reduce toxic waste and recover valuable materials (Tesla's Battery Recycling Initiative).

    Studies show that solar panels and wind turbines can help mitigate climate change impacts over their lifetimes, despite initial environmental costs (Environmental Benefits of Renewable Energy).

    Renewable energy technologies are becoming increasingly practical and cost-effective. Advances in technology and economies of scale are driving down costs, making renewable energy a competitive option (Cost Trends for Renewable Energy).

    Companies across various industries are investing in recycling initiatives to manage the environmental impact of their products. For example, companies like First Solar have established comprehensive recycling programs for solar panels, aiming to recover up to 90% of materials for reuse (First Solar's Recycling Program).

    I tried to attach the links but it doesn't look like it worked. You should be able to google the articles if you want to know more.

    It's understandable to have concerns about terms like "consensus," "reputable," and "anthropogenic" in discussions about complex topics like climate change. These terms can be viewed as deniable because they represent scientific conclusions that may challenge preconceived beliefs or ideologies. Can you expand here on your thoughts?

    The estimated total subsidies provided to the oil and gas industry in the United States over the past 20 years vary widely depending on the source and methodology used for calculation. However, to provide a general figure based on various analyses and reports:

    According to a report by Oil Change International, federal subsidies to the fossil fuel industry, which includes oil and gas, averaged approximately $20 billion per year from 2015 to 2019 in the US.

    Another analysis by the Environmental and Energy Study Institute (EESI) estimates that direct federal subsidies to the oil and gas industry have totaled around $15 billion annually in recent years.

    Thus, over a 20-year period, these subsidies could range from $300 billion to $400 billion, considering fluctuations in annual subsidy amounts and adjusting for inflation and other factors over time.

    Meanwhile the top 9 individuals of the top oil and gas companies make:

    Darren Woods - CEO of ExxonMobil: $15 million to $20 million, including bonuses and other incentives.

    Michael Wirth - CEO of Chevron: $15 million to $20 million, including bonuses and other incentives.

    Ryan Lance - CEO of ConocoPhillips: $10 million to $15 million, including bonuses and other incentives.

    Bernard Looney - CEO of BP: $10 million to $15 million, including bonuses and other incentives.

    Ben van Beurden - CEO of Shell: $10 million to $15 million, including bonuses and other incentives.

    Vicki Hollub - CEO of Occidental Petroleum: $10 million to $15 million, including bonuses and other incentives.

    Lorenzo Simonelli - CEO of Baker Hughes: $10 million to $15 million, including bonuses and other incentives.

    Jeff Miller - CEO of Halliburton: $10 million to $15 million, including bonuses and other incentives.

    Anders Opedal - CEO of Equinor (successor to Eldar Sśtre): $10 million to $15 million, including bonuses and other incentives.

    Can't use it to get away from a hurricane though.
