Global climate change due to carbon fuels was known since we began the burning.
In 1965, President Lyndon Johnson's science advisory board cautioned us of all
that is happening today, warming oceans, melting ice caps, rising sea levels,
all of it.. in 1965 Lyndon Johnson reported it to congress. This science is quite
reliable and predictive. All this time, it was not
only the oil companies, but the government that sat on the information. You can easily
google that and download the science advisory report on the environment from 1965.
I only recently became aware that every gallon of gas I burn in my car creates
18 pounds of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. A gallon weighs..6 pounds, it is 6 pounds of carbon.. C
.. two pounds of Oxygen O2 from the atmosphere are attached each 6 pounds of carbon (gas) upon burning
or 6 x 2 (12) pounds of oxyen are added to the 6 pounds carbon creating 18 pounds of CO2 in the atmosphere per every 6 pound GALLON of gas in our tanks. In other words, all of the gas in our tanks ends up in the
atmosphere x 3 as CO2. Would you really waste so much gas if you were AWARE. Soon, everyone is going
to be aware and they are going to be thinking OMG, what have we done.
It is going to take more than a tax to fix this., Everyone is going to have to change..
