Please take the time to review ALL of the information on this page BEFORE you make any decisions regarding your position on "Climate Change."
FOR REASONS OTHER THAN CLIMATE CHANGE, we do support the implementation of a number of taxes on the use of fossil fuels to discourage their use, reduce pollution and to help replace the federal income tax. SEE: INCOME TAX
We strongly recommend government programs on a national, state-wide and local level to limit suburban sprawl and to plant trees whenever and wherever possible.
The most important action that an individual person can take to reduce atmospheric carbon dioxide is to plant as many trees as soon as they possibly can. If you are not planting trees, then you are not truly helping!
How many trees have you planted?
Trees not only remove carbon dioxide from the air, the also add significant amounts of oxygen into the air.
Falling levels of oxygen in the atmosphere are more important that rising levels of carbon dioxide.
Planting trees is
the only known way
to reduce carbon dioxide,
increase oxygen levels
and cool the environment
by providing shade.
In addition to the burning of fossil fuels, deforestation has added to the elevated levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide.
Over 50% of the world's forests
have been destroyed.
The level of carbon dioxide
has increased by 50%.
In addition to volcanoes and elevated levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, there are also larger astronomical factors that are far more likely to cause temperatures to PLUMMET rather than rise over the next few decades.

"High up in the clear blue noontime sky, the sun appears to be much the same day-in, day-out, year after year.
Until it’s not. Every 11 years or so, sunspots fade away, bringing a period of relative calm.
“This is called solar minimum,” says Dean Pesnell of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, MD. “And it’s a regular part of the sunspot cycle.”
The sun is heading toward solar minimum now. Sunspot counts were relatively high in 2014, and now they are sliding toward a low point expected in 2019-2020.
While intense activity such as sunspots and solar flares subside during solar minimum, that doesn’t mean the sun becomes dull. Solar activity simply changes form.
For instance, says Pesnell, “during solar minimum we can see the development of long-lived coronal holes.”
Coronal holes are vast regions in the sun’s atmosphere where the sun’s magnetic field opens up and allows streams of solar particles to escape the sun as the fast solar wind.
Streams of solar wind flowing from coronal holes can cause space weather effects near Earth when they hit Earth’s magnetic field.
Normally Earth’s upper atmosphere is heated and puffed up by ultraviolet radiation from the sun. But during solar minimum, this natural heating mechanism subsides. Earth’s upper atmosphere cools and, to some degree, can collapse.
There are unique space weather effects that get stronger during solar minimum. For example, the number of galactic cosmic rays that reach Earth’s upper atmosphere increases during solar minimum. Galactic cosmic rays are high energy particles accelerated toward the solar system by distant supernova explosions and other violent events in the galaxy.
Pesnell says that “During solar minimum, the sun’s magnetic field weakens and provides less shielding from these cosmic rays."

Recent research published by Valentina Zharkova has added very important information to the topic of climate change.

We agree with the Green Party:
"The climate treaty reached in Paris in December, 2015 is inadequate to address the climate change crisis. The 195 nations involved pledged to reduce greenhouse gases. The pledges are not mandatory, however. The treaty does not require the phase out of fossil fuels, and it delays higher aid levels for poorer nations until 2025."
The Paris Climate Agreement is fundamentally flawed.
Have you actually read the Paris Climate Agreement?
Have you read what the countries have agreed to do? Are you aware that their "promises" are nearly meaningless and woefully inadequate?
Have you analyzed the information?
"The agreement has, however, deliberately turned away from the notion of the global carbon budget."
"The Agreement allows developed countries to commit to only such emissions reductions as they wish. It has not ensured that the sum total of their actual greenhouse gas emissions will be compatible with their fair share of the global limit on cumulative emissions (the global carbon budget)."
"Another key aspect of the Paris agreement is that the Nationally Determined Contributions to mitigation action are not legally binding in any sense."
"Not only are the emission reduction targets of developed nations inadequate, no consequences will apply if they are not met."

If you truly care about the environment, do everything you can to reduce your personal "carbon footprint" and support the reforestation of the planet in every way possible.
