Been reading a book by Time entitled Global Warming

I've been reading more since I can't talk much as my wife seems to have soaps to watch and plenty of cook books to copy recipes from. I read a little yesterday from a book entitled GLOBAL WARMING - The Causes - The perils - The Solutions - The Actions: 51 Things You Can Do, by TIME.

The book is fully illustrated and very easy for the average reader.

As I sit on the sofa, sipping green tea, my wife watching the 5:30 ABC World News Tonight on broadcast television, I find myself drawn away from this book by the news about Trump and America and metals like aluminum and steel and so forth. I can't really get into details of it because all I really wanted to do was continue reading from that book.

Keeping it real, I put the book down and realized I might read more later when she is watching The Bachelor, which I really do not enjoy at all, then not have any problem with being distracted while continuing to read.

Have you read anything lately about global warming and it's effects on the earth since the year approx. 1750 or so at the dawn of the Industrial Revolution to the present? It is a good book to read. I think it was written a few years ago, and since that time, I am sure Guy McPherson has added much more to the details and the devil is definitely in the details!

I can't seem to be able to put that book down. It has caught my immediate curiosity and attention. I wish more books like this were printed and distributed all over the planet. The one thing I read that really made me think was that less than 5% of the total human population of the earth are living in the U.S.A. and we here in America are contributing to at least 25% of the total Carbon emissions that directly drive the planet's temperature upwards.

For a small fraction of the total number of humans living now on the planet, it is no wonder that the U.S. is not in on the Kyoto Protocol. We are a leading contributor to what is making planet earth a hell for everyone.

It's not enough to say, "I'm sorry." to the rest of the world population, but I really am sorry. I don't even like driving a car. I hate cars. I hate traffic. It makes me sick to see all the cars zooming by our house 24/7 and the air is not much good for the air I am breathing. But, the fact that we are living on the brink of our own extinction event and continue to drive, fly and burn goal, oil and gasoline while walking off a cliff while texting!

We have given up using the car. We either walk or use public transport. I know it is a lot easier for us, we have sops and transport close by. Climate change is worrying.

Have you read my article on the worst fuel for the production of carbon dioxide resulting in global warming? Green Earth people just might be shocked. The fuel is W-O-O-D. Maximize Carbon Dioxide Greenhouse Gas Production - http://www.quirkyscience.com/carbon-dioxide-greenhouse-gas/
