Yes, I use the legacy site primarily.

I do not regularly look in this thread. Nor did I backscroll.  Just became aware of this this morning.

Carbon emissions of richest 1% equal to those of poorest 66%, Oxfam report finds

The world’s richest 1% of people are responsible for around the same percentage of global carbon emissions as the 5 billion people who represent the 66% poorest, according to a report published Monday by Oxfam.

...

The report notes that personal consumption varies depending on factors such as location, use of renewable energy and transport — where the very wealthiest contribute significantly more due to the use of private jets and yachts.

Banning private jets and yachts will have a bigger impact on greenhouse gases than banning petroleum powered cars, stoves and furnaces, etc.


None of which refutes that climate change is a real problem and carbon emissions contribute to that.

Bravo Kurt!

You're correct...the rich are responsible for an unimaginable percentage of carbon.  I'm impressed to see you posting a report link built on a publication that is about equality, with a foreword by Greta Thunberg. 

For the record... flying private is one of the great pleasures available to human beings.  Wars have been fought for much less.

‘Shell knew’: oil giant's 1991 film warned of climate change danger
Public information film unseen for years shows Shell had clear grasp of global warming 26 years ago but has not acted accordingly since, say critics

Climate Science Denier Richard Lindzen's List of 300 "Scientists" Sent to Trump Is the Usual Parade of Non-Experts

Beware climate science deniers bearing gifts or, in the case before us right now, bearing open letters claiming to have hundreds of signatures from “eminent” scientists.

Last week, long-time climate science contrarian and retired MIT professor Richard Lindzen dusted off his contacts book one more time.

Lindzen, who is with the conservative think tank the Cato Institute, sent a letter to President Donald Trump urging him to pull the United States entirely from the United Nations international convention on climate change, known as the UNFCCC.

Trump has previously promised to pull the U.S. from the deal signed by almost 200 countries in Paris in late 2015 as part of that convention.

In just a few weeks, more than 300 eminent scientists and other qualified individuals from around the world have signed the petition below,” wrote Lindzen.

Carbon dioxide, wrote the petitioners, “is not a pollutant but a major benefit to agriculture and other life on Earth” — a statement at odds with every major science academy around the world.

Media outlets including Fox News, The Hill, and Daily Caller took Lindzen’s word that the list did indeed have “eminent scientists” and “qualified individuals” without bothering to check, or even ask if this qualified as news.

Because in reality, Lindzen’s list is a rehash of previous “open letters” and petitions going back almost a decade, carrying many of the same names and making the same worn-out arguments that CO2 is good for the planet. (...)

Work of prominent climate change denier was funded by energy industry

A prominent academic and climate change denier’s work was funded almost entirely by the energy industry, receiving more than $1.2m from companies, lobby groups and oil billionaires over more than a decade, newly released documents show.

Over the last 14 years Willie Soon, a researcher at the Harvard-Smithsonian Centre for Astrophysics, received a total of $1.25m from Exxon Mobil, Southern Company, the American Petroleum Institute (API) and a foundation run by the ultra-conservative Koch brothers, the documents obtained by Greenpeace through freedom of information filings show.

According to the documents, the biggest single funder was Southern Company, one of the country’s biggest electricity providers that relies heavily on coal. (...)

Well, yeah. They completely control the FDA.

Clarify: The government helps funds companies like Monsanto to involve universities in research of their products. Most of the money that comes into universities is from their research departments.

Let's try again.

You throw out Monsanto. And I respond — admittedly, off the top of my head — with Jonas Salk. I did so because he is an example of a scientist whose work contributed significantly to better the human experience and he did so without seeking personal profit.  It would be relevant if your point — and I'm guessing as to what your point might be — were that scientists studying global warming are concocting findings for personal profit.

Now, I'm guessing that the point behind your post above might be that scientific research  funded through private sources is less suspect or more trustworthy than scientific research funded or subsidized in whole or in part by governmental sources?
