Problem is we'll hold on to the status quo until it's much too late.
Netherlands plan to ban petrol and gas cars in 2025, the fact that they call it too radical shows how stupid we collectively are. It's too little too late. Even in a best case scenario by 2025 we will have arrived at a more than 5°C average warming.
That's deadly to most plants, sea and land animals.
So yeah enjoy the next 5-10 years, because after that...

Following the money will lead you straight to Big Oil and all the resources they pump into disinfo about climate change. They have by far the most to lose if they can't keep their stranglehold on the world's energy production.
This is a great point. If deniers would actually practiced what they preached and literally followed the money, they'd be in for a HUGE surprise.

Does it matter if one believes in climate change or not? We still have to reduce pollution, stop overpopulating the world and destroying natural habitats, change torturous factory farming practices, stop over induldging, and basically reduce humanity's destruction of the planet.
There is no right or left politics regarding these issues.
If anything, it's the right that so often dismisses anything mentioned above by using the excuse of "leftist propoganda".

This should be common sense at this point.

Something is being done about it. Mankind has begun its fight with each other over resources and mass migrations. Land that is not in a desert, flood, war zones will be the magnet. Immigration laws and walls wont be able to stop the flood. Too late.

I don't visit ATS much anymore, and it's threads like these that remind me why.
It is members like yourself who thrive on fear mongering and belittling mankind, who continue lower the standards of a once great open-minded thriving site. Bravo.

The part that scares the bejeezus out of me personally is all the methane in Siberia.
We're now seeing rapid venting of it as the permafrost melts.
Methane is 30 times thirty times more potent a heat trapping gas than CO2. Things are going to become exponentially worse.
