Ah, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, keeping the dream alive

http://thinkprogress.org/green/2012/01/12/403261/tom-donohue-pushes-civilization-ending-pollution-agenda-in-chamber-of-commerce-annual-address/

"We have 1.4 trillion barrels of oil, enough to last at least 200 years. We have 2.7 quadrillion cubic feet of natural gas, enough to last 120 years. We have 486 billion tons of coal, enough to last more than 450 years—and we need to use more of this strategic resource cleanly and wisely here at home while selling it around the world."

Burning that amount of fossil fuel would generate 444 billion metric tons of carbon dioxide from the oil, 135 billion tons from the natural gas, and 1.258 trillion tons from the coal. To maintain a climate compatible with civilization all of humanity needs to limit future greenhouse pollution to less than 650 billion tons.
Far from “keeping the American Dream alive for generation after generation,” as Donohue claims, his promotion of catastrophic global warming would grant a diminished, deadly world to future generations.


That's the USA: Hire the best scientists in the world, then refuse to listen to them.

ETA: Some environmental crimes should be punishable by imprisonment or death. Too bad freedom of speech protects jokers like this from facing consequences for their destructive activities. This guy is an enemy of mankind. He should be rendered into biodiesel and burned for fuel.

Is that enough comment for you?
