Comments on: “taking cars off the road”, or climate tokenism? http://blogs.reuters.com/environment/2009/07/02/taking-cars-off-the-road-or-climate-tokenism/ Global environmental challenges Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:14:55 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Sam http://blogs.reuters.com/environment/2009/07/02/taking-cars-off-the-road-or-climate-tokenism/comment-page-1/#comment-342581 Fri, 23 Oct 2009 02:02:34 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/environment/?p=13340#comment-342581 I am writing in response to Mr. Wynn’s article on “Biofuels will stoke Global Warming” I’m not sure if he researched the other side of the argument, but America produces enough resources to make biodiesel alone to provide the whole world with Biodiesel.It can be made cheaply by thinning vegetable-based oil or animal fat with alcohol, a process that any high school chemistry student can master. As so many are mistaken, no deforestation is required, food prices won’t go up, and it will reduce Americas dependence on foreign oil. Shouldn’t we learn to be more self sufficient?

We need to discuss the issues more, learn more, work hard and stay positive. Facts like the layer of lead found deep in the ice in the arctic caused by Roman lead smelters 2000 years ago should give us an idea of the scope of the problem. The idea that an individual can pour a quart of paint thinner into a storm drain and it being ok needs to be one of our focal points and kept in the minds of our school children. Catastrophes may be looming that we are unaware of. What is needed is more knowledge and daily efforts by each and everyone of us.
