BTW, what exactly do all these scientist agree to? Can someone get me the exact wording of that statement that they agree to?
I have no doubt that with more CO2 in the atmosphere that the earth will be warmer than it other wise would be.
I also have no doubt that CO2 levels are higher than they otherwise would be as a result of man's activities, specifically burning coal and oil.
So yes, I have no doubt that man made global warming is real.
How much warmer? Who knows?
What are the consequences? Who knows?
Are those consequences on average good or bad? Who knows?
Can we really do anything meaningful? Nope.
If we try will we do more harm than good? Almost certainly. Can't say for 100% sure because nobody knows with certainty what the consequences are, but given that it is vanishingly small that we can get China to care and do we hope to keep India and the other impoverished people impoverished indefinitely? If they are not so damned poor, they can easily adapt to the negative impacts, if they exist.
Nobody would ever go to work if all you did is focus on the negatives. The environmental alarmists only focus on the negatives, so they come to the predictable conclusion that it is nothing but negatives
This should be man bear pig, not a wolf.
Not at all. Environmental issues are real. We have made great strides at getting the worst ones better under control, but they have not been extirpated. When you have people screaming wolf, when all they really mean is that they don't know for sure that there is not a wolf, people will just ignore them and some day, hey, they may be right, and nobody will listen or conversely like we see, some people are so paranoid that they accept large risks and fear tiny risks: nuclear power being the perfect example.
A politician thinks of the next election; a statesman of the next generation. A politician looks for the success of his party; a statesman for that of the country. The statesman wished to steer, while the politician was satisfied to drift.
