I fail to see the correlation of giving money to a bloated government bureaucracy and reducing temperatures.
"Some US$7.8 trillion will be invested globally in renewables between 2016 and 2040, two-thirds of the investment in all power generating capacity, but it would require trillions more to bring world emissions onto a track compatible with the United Nations 2 degrees Celsius climate target," says Henbest.
According to Andrew Freedman at Mashable, to meet what everyone agreed needed to happen at the Paris Conference, an additional US$5.3 trillion in new clean energy investment would need to be invested worldwide in the next 25 years.
If climate change is such a dire danger to the Earth, then why aren't solution being done now?

I think it takes a special kind of stupid to be swayed into thinking that global warming is just a scam to give governments more power and money... because when it gets bad (a generation or 3 from now) the authoritarian response is going to make Hitler look the Easter Bunny.
southern Western Australia was the only part of the country where autumn temperatures tended to be average or below average. There were large areas of warmest on record covering eastern and northern Australia. Mean temperatures were more than three degrees warmer than average in some inland regions. Autumn rainfall, when averaged across the country, was close to normal, however this hides considerable variation from State to State. Rainfall was above average in South Australia, Tasmania and Western Australia, while Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and the Northern Territory were drier than normal

Yet throughout the last 18 years there has been no global temperature increase, according to the NOAA satellites, NASA satellites, and observations on the ground, are these 'hot' years inside peoples heads? perhaps 'they' don't deduct the cold temps from the hot ones for an average? or add all the temperatures and divide by two?
