I have been talking about Global warming since the 70's, when I heard Gore speak at UCSB. People back then looked at me like I was nuts.

They don't anymore.

We really do need to start worrying about our enviornment. Global Warming is real. People think that it means it is just going to get hotter, but it includes all types of extreme weather patters. the flooding that is occuring is one prime example.

....without the capacity to safely trap and store the CO2
Maybe this is nitpicking, but I think that statement is an over oversimplification, and not thought out well. All storage, unless it is launched into outer space, is finite. Then what do we do with it?
