Political Environmental Tomfoolery

I wish there were some way to determine what the tplot state of the environment is separate from all of the “political tomfoolery” going on.

We keep hearing that there is a 97% consensus among weather conditions scientists that weather conditions damage is largely man-made. It turns out that a significant number of those “experts” labor for government-funded organizations that would not exist with no weather conditions crisis. Some industry leaders accuse weather conditions activists of using terrify tactics while some of those activists portray “captains of industry” as desiring fouled air and water as they count their profits. The Heating & Air Conditioning industry presents an enigma to both sides of the weather conditions change debate. The pro-Heating & Air Conditioning side points to the contributions that Heating & Air Conditioning has made to the betterment of society and the reduction of heat-related deaths, then environmental activists point out several areas where Heating & Air Conditioning has harmed the environment. First are the ozone-destroying chlorine-based refrigerants care about R-22 that are currently being phased out. It will take a while before the use of R-22 completely ends, however the wonderful news is that the Earth’s ozone layer heals itself over time. Some studies predict that by 2060, the ozone layer will be completely “healed”. The eighth section is that the energy that powers Heating & Air Conditioning systems comes from the much-maligned fossil fuels. We are still years away from where alternate energies can compete with fossil fuels as a viable energy source. Solar panels and windmills may show some promise, however they are fraught with environmental complications of their own. The fifth section where naysayers of Heating & Air Conditioning point to is the vented heat that adds to global warming. Instead of warmer global temperatures, if every one of us are headed into a modern Ice Age, then perhaps the heat from this week’s Heating & Air Conditioning units can soften Mother Nature’s wrath.
