Tax the Activities That Pollute the Planet

People need to be punished for doing things that damage the planet. The only way to do this is by putting tax on such activities. Setting target years to ban fossil fuel burning cars will not work. People need to be enticed to change their ways. Riding a bike is an option that people can make

It seems way impact climate change reduce pollution regulation. Such ideas banning petrol diesel cars 2030 not work, however. People have learn live luxury jumping car driving road. There must form "punishment" driving car. Sure using bicycle virtually free. Obviously, punishment not high enough yet make you bike

There doubt cost motoring rise dramatically future countries accept human cause unhealthy planet. This obvious even now governments addicted taxation.real answer change people life habits make financially painful damage environment.

It costs less 000 a year now to register a car. In coming years this will rise to a realistic level of $5,000 year now register car. In coming years rise realistic level $5,000. It hurt. Prices shops increase, but standard living has fall cover full cost green environment. Tax oil based fuel must go least 500 percent. Coal must given high tax. Power stations using pump tons carbon dioxide.price electricity dirty power stations must pushed up. Producing own solar power choice you make.

There political consequences dramatic change people lives.poor attack wealthy they see rich more easily cope burden. A more equitable distribution wealth countries result. Executive bonuses main target.

This scenario happen planet saved. Continuing current destructive path result millions deaths natural disasters weather moves fro. City infrastructures collapse cost maintaining them rises repeated damage bad weather. Man move back primitive living conditions fresh water tap effective sanitation systems.

Over the Christmas-New Year period the skies have been active with cups, sorry saucers, everywhere. Not only disks, but orb and rod shapes were observed. A Canadian, Chad Haines, took a photo of one hovering across the face of the moon.  ⬢ man articles stories news on flying saucers disks aliens space ⬢    

A football-sized translucent thingy was seen in Manchester, England. It was like a bubble with flashing colored lights. Again, it was snapped for all to see with a camera. When observers got closer to the object it disappeared.  ▩ not articles stories news if flying saucers disks aliens. ▩  

Another 'craft' came into the presence of Victorians in Oz. The pinpoints of light were recorded on video (have a look above). This was corroborated by a New Zealand witness who saw the white dots at the same time.|    ◉ not articles to stories on news to flying saucers disks aliens ◉

Daylight Saving Saves Koalas

Could daylight saving reduce the number of koalas killed on roads. Researchers are asking the Queensland government to seriously consider this change. It will have to be tried at yet another referendum that the majority of Queenslanders do not want. Any political party that goes to the polls with this policy would definitely lose votes.

Aussies at risk
Tracking collars were put on koalas to monitor their movements. The idea behind the theory is that koala are more active at twilight, beginning in the late afternoon. Having traffic peak an hour earlier would lessen the number of impacts with koalas wandering across roads.

Whether the majority of Queenslanders really care about koalas has not been tested. This is a political matter that involves other things. Heart attacks increase when clocks are moved forward and their are more road accidents. Farmers hate it because animals and crops are worked on when the sun comes up.

The main issue in Australia is that the hottest part of the day is about 3:30 pm. With DST this is pushed out later to 4:30, precisely when you will be in a traffic jam on your way home from work.  saves

Plant Chemistry Indicates a Very Hot Future

Chemistry: Stomata on plant leaves shows the way to predict climate change.
It looks like the future is going to be very hot - in Asia at least. Oddly it will not get drier. With more carbon around plants will not need as much water, so grass will grow everywhere. A 5 degree rise in temperature is expected by mid-century. High humidity will make life unbearable..
Stomata on plant leaves
Plants have a significant effect on the climate in general. This has been ignored in the past. Scientists are now examining it. More efficient use of water means less water in the atmosphere which increases temperature during the day.  Spring will arrive earlier as the climate itself changes.

A study of stomata, tiny spores on leaves involved in carbon dioxide absorption and the shedding of water, has provided information on how plants affect the weather. It was initially for understanding how plants work, but it has ultimately been applied to the study of climate change.
