This Election Matters Because Of ‘Climate Change’ Or Something

Updating the old saying “everyone talks about ‘climate change’, but no one wants to do anything about it.” That’s because most people aren’t interested in reducing their own standard of living while raising their cost of living, most especially including the people who push Hotcoldwetdry the most. The AP’s Seth Borenstein, their resident climahysteric, is vexed by this election, and says that climate change really super matters, you guys!

THE ISSUE: It’s as if Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump live on two entirely different Earths: one warming, one not.

Clinton says climate change “threatens us all,” while Trump tweets that global warming is “mythical” and repeatedly refers to it as a “hoax.” Measurements and scientists say Clinton’s Earth is much closer to reality.

As heat-trapping gases in the air intensify and hot temperature records shatter, global warming is taking a toll on Americans’ everyday life : their gardens, air, water, seasons, insurance rates and more.

So much so that the issue tends to be last or next to last in poll after poll on American citizen’s concerns.

WHY IT MATTERS

Dozens of measurements show Earth is warming. And it’s worsening. The overwhelming majority of climate scientists and nearly every professional organization of scientists have said climate change is real, man-made and a problem.

Borenstein continues on with the typical stuff you expect, long on complaints but short on scientific proof. It’s blamestorming without proof.

Changing the world’s economy from burning fossil fuel, which causes global warming, has a huge pricetag. So does not doing anything. The world’s average income will shrivel 23 percent by the year 2100 if carbon dioxide pollution continues at the current pace, according to a 2015 study out of Stanford and the University of California Berkeley.

The very fact that it is referred to as carbon pollution shows this has nothing to do with science, and everything to do with politics.

It may seem improbable that government action can restore balance to something as vast as the climate. But presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush showed that big things can be done about air pollution. They took steps that reduced ozone depletion and acid rain.

Except, those issues were real, unlike anthropogenic climate change. They were scientifically proven. Mankind was actually putting real pollutants into the atmosphere. “Carbon pollution” is utter junk science.

    Teach 3/4 of Republicans believe in AGW
    At some point you have to ask yourself “should I be trying to continue to fight a battle that has already been lost?”
    Teach exactly what type of “proof” do you require?
    Certainly for over 100 years it has been known and proved that CO2 absorbs infrared radiation. Why would you think that would not increqase the temps of our atmosphere if CO2 increased?

    If [email protected] is not a pollutant does that mean also that CO isn’t?The SCOTUS says [email protected] should be classed as a pollutant

  3. Hank_M says:

    What are you doing to reduce polluting John?

    Aren’t you a truck driver using fossil fuels and contributing to “carbon pollution”?

  4. drowningpuppies says:

    Seth Borenstein has run this same tired article for a couple of years.

    No one believes or cares about his drivel except the retard.

    The problem for the warmists is simple: the voters are concerned about what happens with their income today, not 84 years from now. Donald Trump is where he is today because so many voters are concerned with what is going to happen in 2017 and 2018, not 2117 or 2118.

  6. Being a person who thinks, I don’t rely upon the Supreme Court to think for me. That’s just outsourcing the responsibility that is mine. So, saying “The Supreme Court says so” or “Other people in your political party say so” doesn’t actually say ANYTHING about what reality is, nor does it convince me. By the same logic, any unpopular position should be wrong because the crowd says so; by the same logic, people never grow and never achieve anything. However, such is the logic of the liberal, unable to even think for himself, and unable to exist but for government whom he praises every morn and night without fail, lest his checks fail to be deposited on time.
