In the 60 and 70s the hippies warned everyone that the government would become even more corrupt and greedy. Guess they were wrong about that too.

Sort of hard to to when the NCDC doesnít always get reported every day.
I did look it up using the Farmers Almanac. Big difference between dec of 67 VS Dec 18.
Maximum temp was 37 in 67. Last year it was a maximum of 70 on the same date last year.
Yeah, itís just one day of the year still big difference.

Because millions being displaced and the last refugee crisis would look like a small party compared to what this would bring.

Climate change doesn't care if you believe or not. It is real and already here.

True. However, the dems are sure having a field day with it.

The problem with the man-made portion is time scale. Climate changes that are natural occur on time scales of 1000's or 10's of thousands of years. We are making changes in the time scale of a couple 100 years. It will be hard for humans to adjust because of the massive numbers of people affected. It will almost impossible for animals to adjust because the normal course is through evolution but this is too fast for evolution to work. Polar bears for instance will be extincted.

As far as percentages, it should be possible to look at the short-term changes vs. long term changes and differentiate the effect of each. I don't know what the numbers are but somebody could figure it out in principle. But we know that we need to be carbon-neutral to stop the man-made portion so that is easy - just incent producers and consumers to not use fossil fuels. Bio-fuels are carbon neutral. Solar power of course is carbon-negative.

I don't know if it's man made or not and most people that say they know are depending on some source that leans one way or the other. So I would say that most people can't know the answer unless they are able to understand the motivation behind whatever source. For example, AOC's own campaign manager admitted that climate change is not the motivation behind the Green New Deal and that the real reason is to take control of the economy.

CO2 is %0.04 of the atmosphere.

It is NOT scientifically found to be the main climate driver; there's no real evidence of the correlation of higher CO2 levels leading to higher temps in the past.

That this SCAM is so huge is frightening, as the AGW crowd got RELIGIOUS in their climate crusade.

EVERY summer, they Freak~Out any time there's a heat wave, yet come the depths of winter....it's just weather.

Year after year the same BS from the Ctrl-Left.

It's gettin' old, and OBVIOUS!
