Political Environmental Tomfoolery

I wish there were some way to determine what the tploy state of the environment is without all of the “political tomfoolery” going on.

We keep hearing that there is a 97% consensus among climate scientists that climate disfigure is largely man-made.

It turns out that a significant number of those “experts” toil for government-funded organizations that would not exist with no climate crisis. Some industry leaders accuse climate activists of using terrify tactics while some of those activists portray “captains of industry” as desiring fouled air as well as water as they count their profits. The Heating as well as Air Conditioning industry presents an enigma to both sides of the climate change debate. The pro-Heating as well as Air Conditioning side points to the contributions that Heating as well as Air Conditioning has made to the betterment of society as well as the reduction of heat-related deaths, but environmental activists point out more than two areas where Heating as well as Air Conditioning has harmed the environment. First are the ozone-destroying chlorine-based refrigerants like R-22 that are currently being phased out. It will take a while before the use of R-22 completely ends, however the great 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 minute part is that the energy that powers Heating as well as 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 as well as windmills may show some promise, however they are fraught with environmental problems of their own. The second part where naysayers of Heating as well as 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 new Ice Age, then perhaps the heat from today’s Heating as well as Air Conditioning units can soften Mother Nature’s wrath.
