Exactly so it really doesn't even matter. If we lived for hundreds of years maybe people would care more.

No one knows the truth anymore.

there is a great power in pragmatism.

beggin' yer pardon... I think that you preceived my statement to be directed at you...

It was more toward the original post, and as a generalization...

So what I'm saying is NO WAY IN HATIES am I'm stopping folding or should anyone!

Coprorations waste BILLIONS just leaving all those lights on!!!
250,000 Semi tractors idle for 8-10 hours a day to either keep warm or cool while the drivers sleep instead of getting a room causing polution and help to desstroy the ozone!!!
AM I RANTING, DARN RIGHT!
Corprate BS and they want the little guy to recycle while auto comapnies allow billions of pounds of plastics to go in the trash while we return a pop bottle!

GET A CLUE PEOPLE!

Last I heard there is no reason for a lightbulb to be turned on during the day at all. Haven't the Japanese figured out how to retro-fit skyscrapers with fiber optic lighting that collects/ filters out UV and IR from the sunlight and then send the light all through the building? That could be done to every building on the planet.

Or if you really want to do something, you could realize that the whole carbon-emission thing is really just pure crap - the deluded attempt by a few Earth worshiper-types that are trying to feel important and special because their world-view has left them with the belief that they have less intrinsic value of a ****roach.

we folders are such a small percentage of pc-leaver-oners that we aren't wasting that much. Think about most businesses that leave computers on all night every night- thousands of them. That is what is causing the waste.

If power waste was such a problem like they say it is they would raise the price of it. Around my area I think it is about 12 cents per kilowatt hour.

That report I posted is by the best scientists in the field. It is the most conclusive and in depth report on global warming ever. It is the report that the UN comissioned years ago to study the topic. Read: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intergo...Climate_Change

Again...

most complete peer-reviewed scientific report on the topic >> TV show with scientists
Once again...
