Government Funded Science

I'm too young to remember the first too, but after science was done to inform us about acid rain and ozone depletion, major steps were taken to reduce both. These steps worked.

Scrubbers and other technology on power plant smokestacks reduced emission of COx, NOx, and SOx compounds by up to 95%, dramatically curbing acid rain. The proof is easily seen in the data from monitoring of rainfall, especially in the northeast US.

When it was discovered that upper atmosphere ozone was being depleted, science created substitute products for the major culprits (CFS, etc.). And it worked! Again, the evidence is easily seen in monthly atmospheric measurements completed both here in the US and globally (most especially from South American & Australian scientists, as well as the international research stations at Antarctic).

The reason you don't hear much about acid rain and ozone is because Americans took reasonable steps and were the global leaders we can be. We are the most powerful country on the face of the planet, and these two events only further serve to prove it.

None of that BS was true nor did any solution work. The one tangibly verifiable part is the fuel reserves potentially being low, so when is it running out? The fact is fuel isn't dinosaur bones. It isn't running out either. The rest is all tripe espoused by the priests of knowing the unknowable who have "technology" you don't and can measure invisible things you can't, that demand you pay for it based on their thus far wrong claims and titles of authority.

The government lies about all statistics.
The coal fly ash is being harnessed (not buried) and sprayed out nozzles attached to military tankers.
The nanopartiulate is too small to be measured using traditional air quality tests.
