You said we couldn't fight climate change because we can't manipulate our environment no matter what changes we make correct?

Far as me saying it.....I....doubt it. I’m sure I said it’s unlikely we get the entire earth pulling the same direction and that it’s a generational issue you can’t blame people for not bringing to the top of their priority list when they have life to live.

I’ve never said climate change doesn’t exist or humans don’t/can’t contribute to it. Nobody ever heard me question if it’s happening or if we contribute to it with greenhouse gases.

I don’t think many reasonable people dispute the findings...

It's always a good thing when you can quantify the benefits of a policy.

The global health and economic benefits are expected to amount to US$2.2 trillion, as a result of averted damages to agriculture, fisheries and materials.

Unfortunately, with climate change, it doesn't matter how adverse the effects will be if people genuinely don't think they will be affected. Politicians and pundits have been quite successful in casting doubt on scientists and experts in the field of climate science in spite of the empirical date they churn out every year.

The scientists Al Gore relied on said Antarctica would be gone by now. Miami would be underwater.

How empirical did that turn out to be?

Blame it on the politicians and pundits?

Yeah, why would we listen to Al Gore and other politicians and pundits when we can listen to scientists and examine the data they collect and regard their analysis of that data?

I dont think Al Gore took the measurements himself. So either he was relying on erroneous data from scientists, or straight up pushing political lies. Either ways his conclusions were readily accepted by left wing climate alarmists. The film won an Academy Award for best Documentary

Scientists dont have legislative authority. So we can listen to them and choose to make adjustments in our own lives.

Politicians like Al Gore relied on “empircal data” to predict costal cities would be submerged in sea water by 2013. Do you want political decrees made by .0000001% of the population concentrated in DC, based on that kind of “empirical scientific data?”

Correct me if Im wrong but I assume the whole reason you engage this subject is to argue in favor of political intervention... right?

Should we have listened to politicians like Al Gore and evacuated cities like Miami based on “scientific empirical data?”
