So the question is - do you want your grandchildren to have a world that is a mess or a world that is more similar to what we have now?
Exactly!

Funny how the deniers call those who understand human caused climate change "alarmists" but look at what they post! Nothing but false alarmist propaganda. LOL!!

It's an imminent threat, but not in the dumb "zOMG 12 years!!1" sense. The consequences will unfold down the upcoming future generations. It's still an imminent threat throughout the world history, though I guess since the earth will be just fine (humans will be screwed), perhaps it's fair to reevaluate the use of the term "imminent" if our perspective is limited to how our 401ks will do.

None of the climate change alarmist ever talk about population control.
That would be the biggest help to the planet and MANY levels.

Climate Alarmists are only interested in destroying the ECONOMY for their GLOBALIST intents!

Just ask AOC's "chief of staff"....

The whole thing is a big SCAM.


Even if America reduced emissions to ZERO, it would make no difference on this alleged destruction of climate. The open sewers of China and India are just to reckless for it to matter to anyone in America.


That is what the Left with this nonsense agenda will not tell you.

Do you realize how ridiculous this is? So if all the climate scientists around the globe were interested in what you claim, wouldn't destroying the "ECONOMY" also affect them?

Human caused climate change is upon us regardless if you acknowledge it or not. However, solving it is political and economic and the argument you are trying to make is that there is a nefarious plot by scientists who want everyone including themselves to suffer massive economic damage for no good reason except...[insert assertion].

Triple-digit temperatures could bring blackouts in New York City, DC and Chicago

Get used to these types of stories! What economic impacts do you think human caused climate change is going to cost the US?

According to Al Gore's book, its already too late. So if its too late, there's nothing we can do to stop it. So why waste time and money.

the only thing ridiculous is Americans falling for it...
...America has reduced it's CO2 emissions back to 1991 levels....almost 30 years ago

It's the rest of the world that's increasing CO2....not the USA

who's raising CO2 levels > https://3c1703fe8d.site.internapcdn....rbonemissi.jpg

The easiest way to stop it...is stop giving money to the UN/IPCC

The UN gives them money to help find ways to lower their emissions.....those countries use that money to build coal plants

Why is it "silly"?
I grew up during the cold war where people prepared for the prospect of nuclear war by building bunkers and stockpiling food.


What seems silly to me is the notion that people believe the world or at least society is in imminent, unavoidable danger, they have access to money that will soon become worthless, that can buy things such as food, medical supplies, guns, water, shelter but choose not to.

It begs the question : do they really believe this?
There you go again, using logic and reason with liberals. Haven't you learned anything yet? Facts have no power here.

Now-if those in the "AGW movement" actually believed what they spew-they would have long-since gotten rid of their 10,000 square foot McMansions. They would never fly private jets-perhaps the most "per capita" carbon source in the world. They would sink their yachts. They would drive Nissan Leafs rather than Suburbans. Follow the most major voices, and watch what they do, not what they say. If they don't "walk the walk"-they are nothing bug grifters.
