Well what are we risking if we take measures to protect the Earth from further defilement in order to offset global warming?
Do we risk not breathing in harmful toxins? Not killing off all the species we come in contact with? Not selling as many petrolium by products as the goals suggested we should? Having clean water to drink?
The same argument is given by every skeptic, "The climate changes we are seeing are part of a natural process that occurrs on Earth every so often, however teh trouble is we are causeing it to happen hundreds and thousands of years earlier than it
i supossed to happen according to trends uncovered in Antarctic ice fossils and core samples. Might I add that Antarctic ice fossils are like snapshots of the TRUTH that cannot be faked because they either contain the eveidence in the form of chemicals and
atmospheric gasses or they do not, so there is no interpretation according to bias involved in at least this aspect of data gathering. I agree that the interpretation of data and statistics is a little political at times, but we just cannot get stupid people
to stop breeding, so I guess we will always have this problem. They just keep multiplying like a disease that cannot be stopped. At least they have immunizations for things like H1N1, but there is no cure for stupidity.
If you do not believe people who are hard at work testing empirical evidence to arrive at reliable beliefs what do you believe in? Do you believe in God? If you do then you have nothing to worry about, for he will save you and yours when that time
comes. As for me I am not at liberty to put faith in anything beside the human race because It seems that we are alone and If we do not fix the problems we cause no one or nothing else will. I do not want to trust something I cannot see, therefore I put my
faith in human ability to be our own gods.
