I notice that both Germany and Canada have decided not to meet their targets under Kyoto. The social costs were just to high in their eyes. I'm wondering how many of us would be willing to change our lifestyles to meet the Kyoto targets (which might not be enough to reverse global warming)? My WAG. We would have to eliminate jet travel for general transportation. In western Washington that would eliminate all those Boeing jobs and the multiplier jobs. For personal transportation my guess is that we would probably have to use Jimmy Carter's gas coupons. His plan was to ration gas at 10 gallons per licensed driver per week. We would have to change the way we generate electricity and price of electricity would triple or quadruble. My question: Given your understanding of global warming would you be willing to make the above changes to your lifestyle?? So much of the discussion has focused on new technologies...well in almost all cases they won't arrive in time. Don't use that argument. When the typical American adds up the impact you can see why Congress voted 95-0 against Kyoto and Germany and Canada are bailing. I think its unfortunate that we are discussing about the truth of global warming rather than discussing how to reduce our impact. The discussion is always about the OTHER person reducing their impacts.
