Human activity and the generation of human waste will effect the quality of our water supplies. Human activity will effect our air supplies also. Human activity will effect period!

Whether you call it climate change or climate disruption - It is a a fact that humans and what they do on a daily basis will have some sort of effect on the natural world all around us...How could it not? We create an artificial world to live in and the artificial will class with the natural.

Since the 80's what is your perception of air pollution here in the US, how much do you think it increased?

Understandably this is not common knowledge, I'm asking what you think it might be.

It depends if you have any skin in the game. If you are the average person living hand to mouth...pay check to pay check - You will understand that human activity causes climate disruption. In the alternative if you are not the average person and hold a large stock portfolio - and have investments in companies that pollute...or in industries that create product that generates air pollution in their use and manufacture.. You will state that THERE IS NO GLOBAL WARMING - because to understand that what you do to generate wealth is harmful will cause you to become impoverished to some degree..

In other words if you are super rich there is no global warming.

It is all about the money..billions of dollars in "research" grants from the government, etc...also, if you don't go along with the Left on this issue you won't get a job in a college or receive funding. That is how the game is played.

Hold on a second here, you were talking about pollution that is going to affect water and air quality. I'm going to ask my question again and just give me a guess, how much of an increase in air pollution do you think there was over the last 3 decades here in the US?


CO2 does not affect water and air quality, it's a greenhouse gas. Matter of fact it can be very beneficial to plant growth, it's like giving them steroids.

Climate Disruption? Didn't they drop that talking point term a while ago? Is it coming back or are you just that behind on the issues?

Not fair. I asked you a simple question first to which you just deflected and now are making excuses. If you can't answer a simple yes or no question then say so. Usually how this works, I ask then you answer and vice versa

Why isn't there as much consensus in the non scientific community, what is with the discrepancy?

Is it that non scientists are smarter than scientists?

97 percent of scientific studies agree on manmade global warming, so what now?
