Growing up I've always been taught to take action on things I believe in. I am slowly learning how certain things humans do are affecting the environment. Everyone is a stakeholder on these issues; we should be more focused on the goal rather than be divided by disagreements like what I've read in this article http://eparegulationlaw.com/epa-regulations/environmental-protection-agencys-methane-emissions-control/ . Any suggestions on how we can combat negative effects of emissions even on our day to day lives? I'd like to start in my own home.

The emissions you have been told to worry about are nothing significant.

They might become an issue in several centuaries, maybe, if the theories used to get the most frightening results are correct. These theories have failed all tests they have been subjected to.

If the world abandons the use of clear thinking however, even more damage than is being done now to humanity will happen.

Today, as a result of the farming lobby jumping on the psudo-science of the green religion, people who live on less than a dollar a day are dieing at a rate due to malnutrition and associated disease faster than Hitler ever killed people.

Do the sums, the poorest billion people in the world, dieing at a few percent more than needed. All due to the western guilt complex.

You will save the world by insisting on reading the actual numbers in the information upon which the dire predictions are based. Understanding the maths is necessary for you to make informed decisions and participate effectively in this wonderful democracy.

Good luck.

Don't concern yourself with what you can do for "the environment."
Rather you should see what you can do for your immediate family, your neighbors, and your country. Stay out of trouble, work hard, pay your taxes, and when you see something you could easily do, like change a flat tire for a lady in distress, or help someone who is injured, step in and take charge.

The world needs responsible citizens, who set good examples for everyone else.

Pay compliments to complete strangers. Thank your grocery clerks for feeding you. They're the last link in the food chain. Tell them that. It's fun and doesn't cost you a dime.

Despite adulthood and the internet. Wow.

I'll tell you what I found interesting the other day, a clip of John Boltons speech to the MEK last year ...

This is a 'tweet', long story Misty ...
https://twitter.com/BahmanKalbasi/status/976968096908021760

... to an audience of people called the 'MEK' ...

"Founded in 1965, it is designated as a terrorist organization by Iran and Iraq, and was considered a terrorist organization by the United Kingdom and the European Union until 2008 and 2009 respectively, and by Canada and the United States until 2012."

But anyway Misty, can I ask you a personal question - are you a man?

Hi,
I find it difficult to believe that no one told you to recycle what you can. Also combining 2 trips into 1 is one less time you need to get into your car. This also helps to lower the maintenance costs for your car as well. Might even get in a walk while you're at it.

Something else I saw recently - when I heard Trent Reznor gave it the thumbs up which means Johnny Cash would, well you gotta pay attention...

It's a trap it's how they operate James it's called 'baby jayning'. They seek out vulnerable men at the fringes of society and lure them in with flattery and masquerade - a ghost town like this with a couple of die-hard climate change skeptics is like a honey pot. Let one of the regulars deal with him that stefan boltzman discussion should tire him out nobody can take it for long.

..If I read the portions of what that article was about (yours is a dead link), it has to do with shutting down the Alaska pipeline to repair leaks and for monitoring of it's wells. This seems to be purely environmental. Am kind of surprised no one in here picked up on that. We do need to do what we can to protect the environment.
..I am not sure with the shutting down of the Alaska pipeline if it's a cost vs. potential impact that is being reconsidered. While no leak is a good leak it might be possible to utilize something like upside down coffer dams and then pump those out into trucks for emptying in a safe manner.
