How many of these grave predictions have come to pass?
Not speaking specifically about the OP (because I don't know him/her) but as annoying as the "alarmists" are, I actually feel bad for them. I'm not
talking about people that have some general concern (whether or not it is warranted) about climate change but rather the people who buy every dooms
day scenario lock, stock and barrel. It's a terrible thing to live in fear like that.
Personally, I'm not all that concerned with climate change. It's practically a cliché at this point but the climate has been changing ever since
there has been a climate. Is mankind making an impact on the climate? I'd guess we are a bit (although nowhere near to the extent that many
alarmists (and politicians who profit from this) would have us believe.
Here's the thing though. As someone who isn't really concerned about Climate Change/Global Warming/Global Cooling... even if I were, I would change
exactly nothing about how I live my life. I recycle. I don't tend to be wasteful. We just bought our first house so we can't afford it at the
moment but when we can, we will most definitely be installing photovoltaic panels on our roof (not for climate change prevention but for the economic
benefit and for the benefit of having power during a black-out).
When I point this out to the few true "alarmists" that I know personally, it's so strange to watch them get bent out of shape. The saying, "Misery
loves company" comes to mind. Although they can't point to anything in particular I "should" (by their standards) be doing differently, the fact that
I don't go insane with worry about random "models" (the data entry of which is entered by who knows), drives them absolutely insane. In a nut-shell,
that's why although they are annoying, I do feel bad for them. Life is short and that is no way to live.
