Whether man does more than we should to cause global temps to change or not, we cannot change the inevitable natural shifts. It seems that those are not under our control. If we were all dead tomorrow, that would help. I am not proposing that as a solution, though.
I like the idea of solar and wind power. I am just not that into killing birds by the thousands with giant propellers, or having to stop eating meat and vegetables in order to afford solar cells on my place. We have it good, too many folks in the world don't. But making our lives more expensive isn't going to benefit the struggling people in Africa, or here.
Why do far-left, mood-politicking blowhards think it will? Do they even care about the poor while they are ranting about evil fossil energies? Would that be too much in one thought stream? Seem to me that raising the cost of everything here will just make things less possible in other areas, economically strangling someone is not the way to improve the lot of the poor.
Al Gore, the former senator (allegedly from Tennessee, but c'mon, he was more Washington insider than anything), and former US VP turned POTUS candidate, was an exaggerative cad in his often mocked, hilariously Nobel-winning, Gaia-worshipping dork-u-mentary. I mean, people! he is living on a rising-tides-endangered coast today - in swanky Malibu, no less. (And he is single, ladies!)
Usefully informed people no longer trust Gore, nor the agendas of left-leaning sci pubs such as "Scientific American", for their politics-driven climate and other, less than scientific, tactics. At least I hope they don't. (I don't short Sci Am for other coverage, but its climate approach has come off as not much science and much science-politics.)
It seems another consensus regarding the weather is upon us, recently reaching a broad recognition among the liberal media machine. Newsbusters has noticed: "Media, Politicians Drop 'Global Warming' in Favor of 'Climate Change'." (via Newsbusters blog post: here )
Newsbusters, I presume, is noticing a trend in the majority, recently. For some, man-made change believers and not, it has been 'climate change' for a while, perhaps even for "Gore-bots".
The liberal-media-watchdog site offered some examples, in the linked story, of when the MSM attacked when folks were not on the warming wagon. And other fun bits of "snarkiness".
