2A was about militia 2A was for muskets
If you can't answer/address these points, then you're not up for a fact based discussion, and if you could, you'd win the Nobel prize:
- Historically, CO2 does not correlate well with the climate at all (despite what Al Gore tells you).
- Historically, CO2 never caused warming: warming causes the oceans to release CO2. This may magnify warming, but it has never caused it. Why not?
- If CO2 caused warming, then why did the earth have ice ages (or cool down) when we've had up to 20x today's CO2 levels? (8,000 ppm)
- CO2 has averaged over twice current levels for the last 3M years, and it's only gone up a 30% over the last 200 years.
- Most of the CO2 and Temperature rise in the last 200 years was from BEFORE 1950's (when Man started putting out significant amounts of CO2).
Judge Napolitano offers a refresher (for political history buffs) of the 17th Amendment and some of the unintended consequences of progressivism: like the scope creep of the federal government once we removed the checks and balances that was the 17th.
