As for the alien thing, stop listening to A.M. radio.
Are you sure you?re not the one taking Coast to Coast too seriously? Even Art Bell has said he doesn?t believe 40% of it.
As far as the environment, yes it is important. But we don?t have to destroy the economy to improve things. Also acting too fast can have bad consequences, especially if we get the science wrong.
The fact of the matter is that it is all theory. And theories can be wrong, or misunderstood. And when science leaves the realm of science and enters the realm of politics, it gets distorted.
Rather then figuring out what is actually going on, people have a knee jerk reaction, and go overboard jumping into the political side, (or the legal side to make some money,) and this is foolish.
Anyone who reads this site knows the real facts about protein. But there are still people, and doctors, pushing the idea that excess amounts are dangerous to your kidney, even though recent research has failed to show any effects.
If we react the wrong way, we could actually ruin an economy for no reason, or even cause environmental problems.
How about this. (Sorry to go slightly off subject, but you might understand.) How many people would love to clone a dinosaur? Sound cool? Great idea? Guess what, it may not be able to survive in our environment.
With amber found in the past, they have found air bubbles with ancient air. It took them two years just to prove to themselves that the air had not changed since the time of the dinosaurs. And the level of oxygen in the air was much higher then it is now. Dinosaurs needed all that oxygen, and that may actually explain why there were so many large animals in the past. All the oxygen allowed for more growth, and it was easier for the animals to get enough oxygen to live.
The environment changed on it?s own, reducing the amount of oxygen in the atmosphere.
Also you have mentioned peak oil. You know that is the belief that we are already running out. (While oil won?t last forever, I really think it is overblown.) Now if you are right about that, then there should not be a problem. We run out of oil, and we quit burning it. No global warming due to oil. Makes sense to me.
Now I ask you to check how the environment is doing compared to decades ago. It is better then it was.
