Sounds like the tactic of the climate deniers. And in your case they were successful.

I believe its happening but I am not comfortable with the solutions from most on the left.

But both the left and right have stances that are anti science of which they are wrong. The right has climate change and the left has GMO's ignoring the vast majority of scientists who say are safe.

There really isn't one. It's far too late at this point.
It was over before it started.

You know, science and all.

I read somewhere, there was a major event, that caused an ICE AGE.
One so devastating to the global environment, the earth is still fixing itself back to normal temperature range.


Man is not going to fix, what is naturally being fixed.

Billions of people spewing emissions every day of every year for over a century won't have an effect?

What next?

It seems like most people would rather believe religious charlatans these days.

Anyways, good on him. I had a similar discussion with a friend of mine yesterday who has also come around on climate change after doing the research.

I for one have noticed warmer winters and cooler summers. Whatever is happening we should investigate and do it more

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.
The republican party is a vast corporate network that says "global warming is a hoax" because combating global warming would reduce corporate profits. And Jim Bridenstine is a republican politician appointed by Donald Trump to be the head of NASA

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_Bridenstine

In reality 97% of climate scientists believe "man made global warming is most likely happening."

And the American republican party is the only political party on Earth that does not believe in man made global warming.

Jim Bridenstine is "a graduate of Rice University with majors in Economics, Psychology, and Business, and has an MBA from Cornell University."

Jim Bridenstine is not a scientist.

Wow, someone in government who can read.
Can you post a source from a respected publication like National Geographic or Time magazine that says man made global warming is not real? NO YOU CAN NOT

Can you post a source from a university or scientific organization that says man made global warming is not real? NO YOU CAN NOT


The only groups that say man made global warming is not happening are paid by large corporations that would loose money if global warming regulations were enacted.
