First, we aren't feeling the impact of climate change. For all the fear mongering, the oceans haven't risen, the weather is fine, and life has been carrying on.
first- we are feeling the impact of climate change. oh i'm sorry, have i interfered with your unsupported assertion by making my own unsupported assertion ?
the oceans have risen:
Sea levels have been rising over the 20th century. This, and a host of other evidence say we _are_ experiencing the effects of climate change.
yes, life is carrying on. and it will continue to carry on even at such time as that carrying on becomes very, very difficult. so what the hell is your point ?
At this point, we're just moving the deck chairs around the Titanic, or perhaps put another way, we using a bucket brigade to try and get the water out of the ship. Nice idea, but pointless when the ship is still going to sink.
The standard denier bullshit. We can't do anything , we should just get over it. Except that the standard denier bullshit used to be "there is no climate change". Now, it's "oh yeah, maybe there is, but we should just get used to it".
By doing something NOW, we can make future impact less. BTW, what exactly do you have against dumping more shit into the air ? remember when they put lead in gasoline ? Should we have just left it in , because we had already dumped so much into the environment that it was "too late" to do anything about it ?
If the AGW people are wrong, then this is just a wealth transfer and overreaching power grab from big government.
your true slashdot, libertarian colors revealed.
