Climate Protesters on Wall Street: Should we outlaw gasoline to fight global warming?

  • Yes but only for the biggest polluter.

    The U.S. government should have to stop using gas. We could end global warming and stop all the wars at the same time. If the protesters actually cared about the environment that's the first thing they would do. After the government is shut down many of these big corporations would die out anyways.

  • yes we should.



    A:Governments and countries have to get together and agree on a
    common solution. They have to legislate to put a cap on carbon emissions
    (to stop factories producing carbon dioxide), they have to stop
    deforestation and takes steps to promote new forest growth, they have to
    deal with waste and anaerobic decomposition that produces methane, and
    they have to promote recycling. They have to cut the use of chemical
    fertilizers whose run-off pollutes our waterways, and promote organic
    farming, worm farms and composting.

  • This is a stupid question.

    Um ok imagine this green energy people: a world without gasoline. That means no industry in the United States. How is a big rig supposed to deliver thousands of pounds of food to your walmart without fuel? How are trains supposed to get where they're going? What about barges on rivers? What about our military, ever seen a combat solar powered aircraft? And how are our tanks going to get any where without fuel? How am I supposed to even now and weed eat my lawn? How am I supposed to go shopping? Walk 5 miles to walmart and walk 5 miles back with a cart full of groceries, then walk 5 miles to Walmart, give them back their shopping cart, and then walk 5 miles back to my house? A world with no fuel would take us back into pre-industrial revolution times. If you want to destroy your country over some trees then you have some serious problems.

  • Gasoline is the best option

    There are no immediate viable options for powering our industry. To ban gasoline is to effectively shut down the United States economy and military. Until better and more efficient options are found, gasoline is unfortunately the best option. Wind power is unreliable, hydrogen is inefficient, and nuclear creates indisposable hazardous waste.

  • Gasoline Cannot Be Outlawed.

    Outlawing gasoline would not only be crazy, it would be impossible. The United States as well as the world relies on gasoline to power not only cars but many other vehicles and machines. If by some stretch of the imagination gasoline could be outlawed, the country would screech to a grinding halt and would no longer be able to function.

  • How would we get around?

    Unless they are planning to somehow create a vehicle that does not require gasoline to run, I really do not see how completely outlawing gasoline would be a popular decision with anyone in the world, even if it were to help eliminate global warming. We still need access to our vehicles.
