    Of course. One old scientist who is pushing past retirement has an axe to grind about the trend of global temperatures. Meanwhile, when policy-makers use evidence of global warming and climate change as motivations to get the fuck off of burning coal and pursuing greener forms of energy (which, hello, create jobs for people who are smart at doing that stuff), they are derided for being "tricked" by the green industry.

    Trying to buy off one's carbon footprint? Okay, not so cool. Trying to figure out how to build the next portable and accessible fuel cell or how to install smarter solar paneling? OMG, nuclear meltdown! Trying to protect profits by buying up patents and sitting on them because sun and wind don't shoot off a lot of crap into the air? "Good business." Mmmm-hmmm.

    What does APS mean?
    What does AGW mean?

    It helps when u make a post if you don't use an unusual TLA* until after you've already stated what it stood for first unless.

    *TLA=Three Letter Acronym


    Interesting that he fails to credit any type of laws or restrictions in helping to alleviate each of the problems.

    That's a good idea. APS is the American Physical Society.
    AGW is anthropogenic global warming. Basically saying that we cause it.
