Is this like the people who changed their minds about marijuana because they read a lot? In any case, the link between Carbon Dioxide levels, planet temperatures, and mankind's direct role in rising CO2 levels is obvious. You'd have to have an IQ under 100 to believe man is not raising global temperatures. However, I would argue that having the planet be warmer is a good thing, and I would also argue that for all the whining the left does about it, it's not going to do anything to affect the way people live their own lives. I bring up the jetting around the world on vacation and private jet thing all the time.. any liberal telling me I'm using too much gas while they fly around on their private jets have no credibility whatsoever given how much CO2 a private jet pumps into the atmosphere.

In the meantime, we have other countries like China to worry about. As all nations around the world start using cars and going through their own industrial revolutions we're going to have a ramp up in CO2 levels for about 50 years until we stop using internal combustion engines. Accept it. It's going to happen. We'll probably peak somewhere around 1000 ppm of CO2 before we start to stablize and all the world's ice caps will all melt. Many people in coastal areas will have to move the next 100 years. The planet however will survive because we'll make the transition away from internal combustion before it gets "too late".. on the plus side though it will be hotter in hot climates, vast swaths of Canada and Russia will be able to support agriculture and plants do green faster with higher CO2 levels which is a natural balance to our activities especially since the trend of allowing areas to reforest is starting to occur.

Another positive is coming that will reduce emissions from farm animals and reduce demand for land.. I believe that within 20 years most of the meat we buy will be lab grown, and am attempting to invest to position myself to profit from this when opportunities arise. Wheat, corn, and soy are by far the most efficient use of land for the production of food compared to cattle and even produce or things like Almonds which waste a lot of water in their production.

The more we ignore it the less money will matter in the future.

Doesn't seem to matter to the warmers that Bridenstein is not a climate scientist.

“The world has been chilling sharply for about twenty years...If present trends continue, the world will be about four degrees colder for the global mean temperature in 1990, but eleven degrees colder in the year 2000. This is about twice what it would take to put us into an ice age.”

So you guys believe the world is 3 billion years old and agree with the scientists on the different periods but can’t believe some of the same scientists who say that climate change is real??? It’s not like the guys who talk about the ice ages of the past and the different periods of earth’s climate are the same people who say climate change isn’t real.

NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine says he changed his mind on the existence of man-made climate change because he “read a lot.”

“I heard a lot of experts, and I read a lot,” Bridenstine told The Washington Post on Tuesday. “I came to the conclusion myself that carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas that we've put a lot of it into the atmosphere and therefore we have contributed to the global warming that we've seen. And we've done it in really significant ways.”

The former congressman from Oklahoma had long denied the scientific consensus on climate change and said in a 2013 speech on the House floor that "global temperatures stopped rising 10 years ago."

In May, Bridenstine first announced publicly that he now believes human activity is the main cause of climate change.

Good on him.
Yawn.

The earth is 4.5 billion years old.

There have been over 5 billion species.

Well over 99% of those 5 billion species have gone extinct.

But by all means keep separating your trash before you throw it away.

Wow, someone in government who can read.

For over 45 years the fossil fuel companies knew global warming was the result of manmade carbon emissions into the atmosphere. But through misinformation they have attempted to discredit the science.

Climate changes all the time. I don’t need any “scientist “ to tell me that.
