Time to Stop Tiptoeing Around the United States on Climate Change | naked capitalism

If the US isn't going to change, and change is irrefutably required in the face of catastrophic consequences, then we should expect catastrophic consequence.

The assumption is sea levels are going to rise, destroying coastal habitat. Climate change is blamed for the drought in the SW US and flooding in the East.

In fact, climate change was happening before man could possibly have effected it, and will continue regardless of man's impact.

Whether or not man, as a species, is rushing headlong into oblivion is another matter, but I wouldn't list climate change at the top of this list of causes, despite the absolute and utter hyperbole presented here.

The schizophrenia nature of this site is tiring. On the one hand, social change must be dictated by mandate to prevent Armageddon. On the other, that which is actually occurring and pushing our society closer to the cliff is the ACA, caused by mandate. You can't have it both ways.

Of all the issues with the potential to alter life as we know it for the worse, climate change is at the bottom of the list, since attempting to avert it will cause the same. At least you'll be able to say, I told you so.

Multinational conglomerates are going to have their way regardless of any activists efforts to the contrary. One of the ways this is accomplished is by group think, and that is exactly what this site promotes, liberal elitism. Lucky for you there's a cause de jour to get worked up over.

I realize my comment may not be well received, and I'll tell you why. My standard for the truth is the source of truth, God Almighty, and he's bigger than liberal intellectualism, humanism, and global warming. There is also a cause for the supernatural attacks against man, and that is the Devil, who's evil knows no bounds and would destroy that which God created, if it were possible.

Given there's a common enemy, the defense against which is accomplished only by truth, all other efforts are guaranteed to fail. You cannot negotiate, wish away, ignore, overlook, deny, or otherwise avoid what is reality for every person, the opportunity to accept the truth by confessing Jesus as Lord, and believe God raised him from the dead. Then you will be saved. (Romans 10:9 - 10). Saved from what? The wrath of God. It's the only way. One need only look at what happening in our country and in Europe to realize events are unfolding in a less than humanistic manner. Russia and China are already godless owing to their governments, what is left is Europe and the US. The Southern Hemisphere will follow the Northern. It is up to the individual to stand against the wiles of the devil, in all his forms. He is defeated one soul at a time.

While I agree, carbon monoxide emissions are a concern, I'm not sure what if anything can be done. There's no doubt the author of this article has a carbon footprint higher than would be acceptable in his Utopian society of alternative energy. So, basically, he or she would dictate everyone else do what he or she won't do willingly.

I can assure the author there are higher concerns.
