Man vs Machine

"Since the recession ended, businesses had increased their real spending on equipment and software by a strong 26%, while they have added almost nothing to their payrolls.

Sean and Reck, lol..Co2 Is Not a Pollutant
I'm a scientists, according to outlanders definition, so you should take my word. This argument is rather dishonest, and revolved around how we define "pollutant". How we define pollution doesn't change the fact that CO2 is causing global warming, read the rest
