My point is that to make an informed decision, you have to weed out the fake data and opinions based on lies. I think in a few years, we will all know the truth and my hunch is that "Global Warming" will not be a factor anymore and people will have to find something else to scare each other with.
The weather is no different than it has ever been. Only fools believe climate change is happening. Some years are hotter than usual, just as some years are colder than usual. It happens...
Climate change has been happening since the earth developed an atmosphere. Climate change is not in question in any manner, form or postulation.
The only question is how much of an affect man has had on it. The only question is how soon will we see real change.
Just an FYI: I am not chicken little. I am not advocating massive lifestyle changes to counter climate change. We do not know enough to understand what the effects may be or even if we can change it's direction. Only the universe is larger than man's hubris.
The polar ice cap is melting, reflecting less heat. The tundra is melting, which will release massive amounts of methane into the atmosphere.
Another question is whether the earth's balancing system (so to speak) will react and counter additional warming by, say, shutting down the North Atlantic current throwing us back into a period of glacial growth.
Another question: Will Hollywood types and politicians actually reduce THEIR carbon footprint as they preach to us to do? (Buncha freakin hypocrites)
