I am one of your so called nay sayers, a denier of Global Warming.
Let me set the record straight for you.
Never once have I said that CLIMATE CHANGE was not occuring.
I just don't believe humans are the root cause.
because I have lived long enough to watch this complete -bs- go into many different phases.
First it was: Climate change isn't happening..only fools and scientists believe it
then as conditions mirrored exactly, EXACTLY what the scientists said, the new deal is..
ok, well, its happening, but its not our fault, therefore we can't do anything about it.
No, when your wrong to begin with, you can't just reframe the argument as to why we can remain lazy
Climate change is occuring, yes..and glad you agree with the worldwide consensus of scientists..but like gravity, your belief, agreement,
acknowledgement, etc doesn't matter..it is happening, belief or not.
What is part of your/my/our domain however is accepting the next bit..that 7 billion people constantly screwing up the ecosystem and biosphere is
indeed having a effect...this is measured, purely a matter of science...yet this acceptance is being blocked by (naturally) those whom are
facilitating the status quo and making money off of it. They spend billions to keep not information down, but misinformation up...to get enough voters
to demand the corporations are right and the world of scientists are incorrect.
No, your stance on this is even more dangerous, because you accept it, you just refuse on principle to claim responsibility for it. At least in full
denial, you could be shown enough evidence to have you understand...your stance is principled...and wrong.
Your stance is simple:
The human body is massive..a bullet is small. Surely a bullet can do nothing to the human body..it would take thousands of bullets to even start to
hurt a body
This is the argument for deniers
The only argument left on this subject (the only sane one anyhow) is..can the measures suggested by the eggheads even do anything about it, or has the
switch been flipped now...Personally, I think we are going to have to invent our way out of this verses do the almost impossible (cutting back on
consumption and exploitation). We need massive, massive international programs for atmospheric scrubbers and the like, along with a serious effort
for new standard power sources (guess which companies don't want that)
