Do you agree with American CEOs who want stronger regulations on climate change?

"Without clear climate change policy, not only will manufacturing jobs be siphoned off to overseas rivals investing heavily in renewable energy sources, but U.S. companies won't have any clear direction on where best to invest their money in new capital projects to keep in line with regulations, top executives said. {...} Improved energy efficiency standards for buildings and appliances; more research and development into biomass, clean coal and other technologies; and opening more U.S. acreage to oil exploration would all help create jobs, Dow's Liveris said. At a separate conference in Pittsburgh, experts said U.S. workers are already finding jobs building wind turbines, installing solar panels and retrofitting buildings with stronger insulation to conserve energy." Do you agree with these CEOs that the US needs and would benefit economically from stronger regulations on climate change? entuto - go look up a graph of total solar irradiance over the past 30 years (measured by satellite) before claiming that global warming is always caused by the Sun. dpj5 - why are you talking about Reuters? That's like attacking Al Gore about global warming science. Try discussing the content, not engaging in ad hominem attacks.

Climate change is a reality, but the controversy is silly. The only constant about climate is that it changes. The earth's climate has changed since the beginning, and man has usually blamed himself (angering the gods, too much C02, etc) for its change. Our Sun is the cause for the temperature fuxuations in all our... More

Climate change is a natural cycle, yes, but it's stupid to think that humanity is having no impact on it. Even if we weren't, we're still impacting our immediate environment- air, water, etc. So really, the worst that could come from stricter regulations is- GASP- cleaner air and water. How awful. :P

Reuters is not an American company. "In 1995, Reuters established its "Greenhouse Fund" to take minority investments in a range of start-up technology companies, initially in the United States." Yeah, that's reliable.
