whether or not global warming is real or not is irrelevant. Living a sustainable lifestyle is not only good for the planet, and probably your health, it probably saves money in most cases, and shows a little respect and gratitude to the land that has been able enough to sustain our life.
Show a little respect and live a sustainable lifestyle. your children will thank you when they dont have to save up to take a clean shower and play in garbage in the future.

Global Warming is only an excuse to raise taxes. Nothing more nothing less.

I don't know about anyone elses kids but mine aren't being "brain washed." Does anyone actually talk to their kids or do they just let the schools raise them? If you are too lazy to talk to them then you are worse than the brain washers....

Do your own research.
Have a look at these:
The latter has more detail. Take particular notice of the Sea Ice Extent & Concentration figures on each chart for the years. Pick your own years to compare to current. Well! What do you know .. it's growing fast. Did you read that anywhere?
Down here in Oz, we have been hearing (as you may have) about the huge chunk of ice shelf falling off Antactica due to global warming. Turns out it's not that big and it's falling off something that wasn't there no so long ago. It probably better I post this link rather than detail it myself and make a huge post.
(I particularly like the explanation ... given in humour ... at the base of this page)

Global Warming (this time around) is profoundly influenced by the hand of man. 30 years of research supports this. The idea that man has not played a part in global warming is a fundamental idea propagated by the right wingers to futher advance their economic agendas. To place economic well being above the health of our planet is unforgivable as far as I am concerned.
You call this brainwashing, but I like the term education myself. Suppose for argument sake that the vast majority of the environmental scientific community are wrong and man plays no part in GW. Then all that work we have done to counter-act GW was for nothing, all we got out of it was cleaner air, cleaner water, improved respiratory health, and less waste, and who needs any of that.
GW is real, it's here, and it's our public enemy numero uno.
The Treasury receives around £29.3billion each year in green taxes such as air passenger duty, accountants UHY Hacker Young said.
The Government raises £25.1billion in fuel duties and takes in £2.1billion in air passenger duty each year.
But it gives just £254million back in lower vehicle excise duty for people who drive environmentally-friendly cars.
And the total it hands back each year to environmentally-friendly taxpayers is £549million.
