I remember when vast areas of pine forest were dieing. It was blamed on acid rain. I'm confident many knew it was the southern pine beetle that was destroying the pine forests.
Acid Rain, Global Warming fits an agenda.

My favorite was when Oliva asked what was for dinner, and Lisa said soup. Oliva said there's nothing in the pot but water. Just then Ebb comes in and says, "oh boy, hot water soup."

I remember acid rain.

Yes...release of of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide were cut and the incidence of acid rain was significantly reduced since the 70s/80s...hence no more gloom and doom.

There's been a lot of regulations re: emissions from industrial smokestacks since those days. There aren't near as many today as there once was.
There it is. Why we have too much government. Do you have any data that tie regulations to aversion of the "disaster"?

Yeah, let's not conflate the two. There is a fundamental difference between wanting a clean environment to live in and using a mythical environmental issue as a tool (such as AGW) to push for more taxes to implement socialist ideals.

Have you been "studying" this for decades, too???

Anyway, no one legit ever claimed acid rain was going to destroy the world, merely that it had a deleterious effect on a number of things.

Why don't y'all just look it up on Wikipedia?

LINK

Some say that the reason we don't hear much about acid rain anymore is because the EPA with it's cap and trade program was so successful at reducing the emissions by about two-thirds. And yes, acid rain and pollution in general is a big problem in China.


Yes, the EPA rules need to be streamlined. The EPA shouldn't try to micromanage, but at the same time, some nationwide standards and regulations need to be enforced. Otherwise, just look at China or just google "Cancer Alley".

Maybe you can answer a question. Hydroponics is growing plants in water. Yet gardening experts keep warning me not to over water plants. Seems like a contradiction.


It has more to do with aeration than adaptability. When growing in soil, you don't want to over water because your roots will be sitting in stagnant water with no access to oxygen, essentially drowning them. Growing hydroponically you're adding oxygen by an airstone or other means of bubbling (underwater pump, or direct current).

Anything that is grown in soil, can be grown hydroponically.

So if AGW is not a tool to promote a socialist agenda please tell me the ideal temperature that should be achieved, what the concentration of CO2 needs to be to achieve said temperature, what tax rate should we implement to achieve said CO2 concentration and how will this tax policy curb CO2 emissions from other countries?

Now this is a potential WWIII that would be very interesting based on geographical alliances.

Do you remember the slap bracelet ban bc they cut some kids' wrists?

I'm not 40 yet but I do remember watching something at school about acid rain. It gave me nightmares. Then, I remember the next ice age scare.

Wrong. You obviously didn't study it in real time. Acid rain = water pollution = key stone species (think krill) = food chain destruction = end of humanity.

Actually, the end of humanity wouldn't be so bad. All of the people I dislike are humans.

Nope, but I did sit through a seminar with an old woman from the US Consumer Product Safety Commission. She said that large play balls were bad because children could chew on them and ingest plastic.
