, the biggest culprit is said by expert climatologists and other scientists to be CO2 as the biggest cause of global warming so anything which can reduce it has got to be a good thing.
I don't buy into it but there you go, the experts say it is!
The planting of more trees is good but that would upset the hunting brigade who want the open moors and mountains leaving open for the hunting of grouse and deer etc. Planting trees is not expensive and they are excellent pollution filters.
Too right other pollutants are to blame too like vehicular ozone trapping heat nearer the ground, and as you mention our health is suffering terribly due to dozens of pollutants but you can't get too tough with big industry, they have too much power to veto any changes we try to make.
This may sound ridiculous but what about all the extra water vapour created by kettles, showers, baths (swimming and bathing types), steam jet cleaning, car washes, cooling towers, industry from the production of tyres to foodstuffs. Now that is a lot of extra water vapour being forced into the atmos' is it not? To condense it back into water it has to lose most of its heat. This heating is going to prevent further condensing so more cloud cover, not necessarily observable cloud but invisible water vapour which probably accounts for most of the water vapour thats up there. This creates the blanket that keeps the earth warm in the first place. It would be a much colder place otherwise. More heat means more evaporated water from the oceans stays up there too!
"But you can't TAX water vapour!"
How much extra water vapour would have to be created to push the total level up from say 93% to 95% and where are the figures to show what the percentage was 100,000 or even 1 million years ago? In fact show me any figures for water vapour that are used in analysis of global warming! Is it not true that high volcanic activity always preceded ice-ages? Would this not be a time of an excessive amount of extra water vapour pouring into the atmosphere, and therefore extra cloud cover, plus massive amounts of pollutants?
Do we really know what we are dealing with? I think not! Take away the tax incentive then we'll talk!
