Prius Causes More Environmental Damage Than Hummers

Prius worse than Hummers? I’ve heard that these Hybrids were going to save the environment, but also knew that the technology used in the batteries was harmful to the environment and that the short life of these cards created more pollution due to the replacement of the battery packs and even the whole car.  The plant where the Prius’ battery’s core materials are mined and processed is so badly impacted that NASA uses it to simulate conditions on the moon.  Check out The Recorder’s article for even more information.

U.S. buildings account for nearly the same amount of carbon emissions as the economies of Japan, France and the United Kingdom combined.

Meltdown: The Predictable Distortion of Global Warming

Patrick J. Michaels

Patrick Michaels the author of Meltdown: The Predictable Distortion of Global Warming by Scientists, Politicians, and the Media joins Craig to discuss the truth about Global Warming.

There is no politically acceptable technological strategy at this time that would result in a significant change to the warming trajectory that surface temperatures are on.

If every nation on earth lived up to the Kyoto Protocol, the amount of warming that would be “saved” would be 0.07 degrees Celsius per half-century, and amount too small to measure.
