Hubris?

Isn't that the point of those proclaiming climate change? Use technology now to stop it?

Oh, it wasn't unclear. It is just not "delicate".

If you think you can change the ever-evolving climate, you are seriously-deceiving yourself. It will do as it pleases. We can't even do something simple like snuff out a hurricane.

Will Humans Survive the Sixth Great Extinction?

Making the argument that climate change does not exist is futile, imo, because the science is in.

Whether or not man is making huge contributions that make an impact or not ... that will be debated forever.

However, even taking man out of the equation, evolution happens regardless, so the point being now, how to survive and are we smart enough to pull it off.


Side note: People talk about the heat of the sun, but I very seldom see any one refer to the heat that is in the center of the earth. We are surrounded by heat; that effects our climate ... the difference between us and the dinosaurs, people will see it coming. But stop it ... I don't see how.

The Earth is cooling, not warming. That is a fact. In untold years from now this planet will be a cold rock.
...tens of billions of years in the future (and the Sun too). But only about 2 billion years from now the sun, well on its way to becoming a red giant 250 times its present size, will have boiled away the Earth's oceans and killed everything on the planet down to the microbes.

You supposedly drive trains for a living. Stick to that. I know where to find Al Roker when i need him..
Of course you would pick a COLORED weather reporter!

The sun is now the center of the universe and space?
