    The problems we face today are because the people who work for a living are now outnumbered by those who vote for a living.

    It's climate change actually. The correct term.
    A thing the planet has always done...in cycles. Regardless of our contribution to the problem.

    Same "Dog", just a different name.

    Remember they had to change the "Dogs" name after Michel Mann and Co. got exposed for fiddling the books.

    Quite agree. Climate change has happened many times in the past and now it's happening again. We are contributing but if we were not it would still be happening. Not burning fossil fuel is not going to change anything. It's inevitable. At least I won't be around to see the full effect of it but I worry about our children and grandchildren.

    I agree, but global warming is a faster change in climate brought about by our actions. These are natural but, with our help, it is just really fast.

    What I don't like about the "climate change happens naturally" argument is when it's used as an excuse to do whatever the hell we like to the planet and take no blame for the result.

    Death is a part of the natural cycle of life, it happens to all of us. So if someone through his actions causes someone else to die a little sooner, that's ok it was going to happen anyway?

    The planet will survive us, but we may not survive ourselves and we just may take a great many other species with us.

    "climate change happens naturally" is only used to counter the radical extremist BS that many Warming Nazi's pedal out .

    Of course cutting down 75% of all the trees & burning coal will have some effect
    No where near the effect that happens naturally over the course of time .

    Want to talk sea levels, how about when sea levels raised 60+ feet due to natural causes (hence all the old villages/settlements found underwater)

    Honesty , not extremism on both sides would go a long way .
    When a side resorts to name calling , the argument is lost (both sides) .

    Yes.
    And switching from oil to lithium won't help.
