You are right its not much but the problem is cumulative and will be a very big deal to our childrens children. Unfortunately whatever the consequences of Global Warming we and future generations will have to endure those consequences as the world just isnt taking seriously the climatic effects of using 100 million barrels a day of fossil fuels/oil, a number that is increasing rapidly.
Heres a pic of our very thin and fragile atmosphere,https://www.grc.nasa.gov/www/k-12/ai...atmosphere.jpg its what keeps everything alive on Earth, if the worlds Scientists are saying we are screwing it up it would be in our own best interests to take them at their word , err on the side of caution and support efforts to improve the environment. to say it isnt happening or is all a big hoax and as a result do nothing about the problem is IMO a highly irresponsible attitude that will only leave our children and their children a bigger problem to fix.

You, me and everyone reading this post today will be long gone before the first nail is put in that project.

What are you gonna do? Protest the ocean? If the ocean will rise, then it shall be done. It will rise with or without human intervention. I swear this "climate change" hysteria gets old, fast. If Mount St. Helens wants to erupt again, let her. Stop trying to stop nature from doing her thing! That's what got us in trouble in the first place. Oy vey!

In 2008, ABC News ran a 'what will the world be like'. In 2015, New York was supposed to be under water. My daughter was up there this year and has first person observations that NY is just fine.

The whole thing is a scam to expand government control over our lives. Don't believe it? Look how many laws and regulations now affect us all in the name of global warming or whatever they want to call it today. Pending are EPA regs to control even the smallest puddle in your yard. Further, the EPA has publicly stated it is willing to go door-to-door to enforce such regs.

Well, with all these mindless "global warm........er.......climate change" bandwagon members around, including the mainstream media breathlessly reporting each blip on the weather satellite as irrefutable evidence of same, you know we would have heard all about it in gory detail if NY had not been ok.

Unfortunately, y'know the global thinking is that the guv'mint owns each and every body of water out there, including the puddle of water that appeared at the end of your driveway after the last rain.

Stop being pigs and polluting the world for the future for one. We can halt rising temperatures and not crap up our atmosphere with carbon and methane but it seems difficult to get about 50% of the people to think its an important enough issue. Seems stupid to me and I'm fairly conservative.

I'm of the opinion that we can be good stewards of the resources we have been given, to tread lightly, so to speak, leave as small a footprint as we can, be mindful of excesses, just because it is the right thing to do, and to preserve the beauty of the natural gifts we have been given. IMO we can do this without cowering in front of those who use phony information to grind fear into the masses for the purposes of lining their own pockets with "carbon credits".

Yes, because the international scientific community has nothing better to do with their time than to participate in a "hoax" against humanity. Seriously, time to loosen up the tight fittin' tin foil hat folks!

It's hilarious, they'll believe any quack that says a Cinnamon pill cures diabetes but when real science work and data is presented they bury their heads in the sand.

Same thing happened with leaded gasoline. People are seriously stupid.

I see you are busy recycling the same, sorry old left wing "arguments" for what they want you to believe, with nary an original thought on your own about it. Does nothing to lend any credibility to the argument, and the requisite ad hominem attacks only make you look foolish. And unoriginal.

And as for that all too often regurgitated comment about the "97%" of the scientific community being on the global warming bandwagon, all that says is that the majority of those "scientists" have caved in to the pressure and are more interested in the continuation of their livelihoods and not being ostracised and blacklisted for not going along with algore and company's fraudulant agenda to line their own pockets and control the masses.
