You can't control the pussy... You can only hope to contain it.

pffft

gun control is small potatoes. Want to really control the world? Control the water.

People have been saying this for hundreds of years.

Until we get to that point, the energy and the guns are the most important if you want to control the masses.

Climate change deniers are right up there with anti-vaccine people for showing how bad science education has gotten in this country.

There is no doubt that climate change is real....the part that most of us don't really buy is the part about us/humans causing it.

The Earth climate has been changing for millions of years, it didn't start in the 70's.

The "most" not referring to anyone remotely associated with science of course.

Its not really that complicated. CO2 concentrations have been steadily rising since the industrial revolution, and CO2 in the atmosphere acts as a greenhouse gas and warms the planet (among other things). Its a pretty well understood mechanism, without it the planet would be too cold for most life to exist.

The question is whether we should do something about it. Its highly unlikely that anything catastrophic will happen, though some people will definitely be moving. Some places will actually benefit from a warmer planet (Russia and Canada for example)

Will we do something about it? Probably not

warmer isn't necessarilly better. a serious change in weather patters could completely f*ck the worlds food supply... there are a number of catastrophes that could arise from this situation. thankfully, as citizens of the first world... we just create the problems, we don't have to deal with the repercussions.

Any shift in climate though would be slow enough that the food supply could readjust. I'm not saying food shortages wont happen, but the global trend will be for more precipitation, which is the limiting factor in modern food production.

Now places like Africa, which already cant produce enough to feed its population, could have some big problems, especially if they dont get their population under control. If a big drought caused food shortages elsewhere and other countries refuse to export, there could be serious consequences. But on a world wide scale, I dont see widespread starvation or anything like that

If the environmentalists' arguments consisted of a clean earth, clean water, clean air, etc, I could and would give the movement all the backing I could.

But when the obvious intent is to handpick companies from which all other companies must buy products and pay to use patents - then no, I want no part of it. When the handpicked companies usually have money in the "research" (cough dupont cough) then it should be transparent to everyone. But people believe what they want to believe.
