IMO, I believe that climate change is real. No I won't try and convince anyone who already has his/her mind made up about it. To those who believe that it isn't real I honestly hope that you are right about it and I am the wrong that's wrong. This is one of those things I would be more then happy to be wrong about.

Folks who insist that this is just a regular part of the natural cycle may want to consider the benefits of acting as if it maybe those 97% might have a point. Like praying even if you don't believe in heaven.

It mainly consists of doing things that make sense anyway -- sustainable energy rather than using up nonrenewable resources.
A lie doesn't become true just because 97% of "scientists" believe it to be true or were paid off or threatened to support it.

Climate change is real and to save a buck today they will willingly, and with enthusiasm, mortgage their grandchildren's future and sell their birthright.

As my nut job conservative cousin told me, "So what if climate change is real, I have more money in my pocket today. Climate change is my daughter's problem."

That is the true conservative position. Screw the generations that follow.
So then, with that logic, you're for a balanced budget amendment, right? As to not screw the future generations?

No significant increase in CO2, so what caused the warming?


The geological record is full of CO2-temperature inconsistencies that prove whatever effect CO2 has on surface temperatures, it is overshadowed by much more significant drivers of temperature that have given us both ice ages and warming periods.
Must have been the after effects of all those dinosaur farts that humans weren't allowed to regulate. At least we can regulate cow farts:

Global warming is a great thing for humans, not so much for animals.

The number one cause of extinction right now is not climate change - it is lose of habitat due to human activities. Slaughter the humans and save the polar bears!
There are positive and negatives to global warming. Most people only focus on the negatives. The northern sea routes are starting to open up, which saves shipping costs tremendously and saves fuel and lowers prices. Some people will benefit from global warming, some won't. It will bring change. That's for sure.

The earth has endured 5 mass extinctions due to climate change (without man) and its still turning. The earth will survive humans. This whole idea to tax everyone in order to save the earth is just a scam.

To all the tree huggers in here, I ask what have you done to reduce/eliminate your carbon footprint other than complain about people owning cars, computers, smartphones, etc?

While using their cars, computers and smart phones to complain.
Upon reflection... That bears resembles WJC.

That is correct. However, global warming will virtually benefit everyone.

Except of course all the people in low elevation coastal areas who will find themselves underwater, and all the countries that built up along the coast (read: every country that has a coast) who will have all that investment in infrastructure go to waste, and all the people who are no longer able to survive because the land they used to use for food is now dry and barren.
