It's pretty easy to verify what speech on Wikipedia is accurate. All information should be verifiable by checking a reliable source. If you find information in Wikipedia where no source is given and you think it may be incorrect, put in a [citation needed] tag. If no one adds a citation, anyone is free to remove the information.

Of course, many people who bitch about Wikipedia and how it doesn't work complain that their edits were undone, often because they added information without a reliable source for verification. You can't please everyone. Either you set a bar to clear to get your edits in and people complain that their edits are undone, or you let everyone add anything and people complain that too much information is inaccurate.

Nice strawman. It's not about "the world ending" or "higher taxes" or "world government" at all. I don't know how you people twist a bit of warming into crap like that. We're burning fossil fuels, creating carbon dioxide, which is a greenhouse gas, and it's causing warmer temperatures. Those warmer temperatures will cause economic losses, so to cut our losses we should cut carbon dioxide emissions by generating electricity from non-fossil fuel sources.

There's a limit to the fossil fuels we can burn, and they're only going to get more expensive. There is far more energy available from alternative sources, and switching to them could be economically beneficial soon. If you want energy starvation and poverty, just keep burning fossil fuels.
