Craziness. But this is what many want each for their own reasons. They want protectionism from competition by shutting out new production. They want to profit by selling carbon credits, giving credits to existing entities and forcing start-ups to pay more. Some are neo-luddites without knowing it, as the ramifications of their wish list will turn back the last 100 years of progress. Some want to see the USA punished for its success.
Science requires scientific methods and scientific rigor. There is no way to test the hypothesis that humans are causing a rise in greenhouse gases, that it will result in higher temperatures, or that higher temperatures will be calamatous to earth. There is evidence that higher humidity (water vapor is a greenhouse gas) will enable plant life to thrive.
The demagogues talk about rising oceans, floods, rains, hurricanes, melting ice caps you name it. What they omit is that the earth has always experienced such calamities. My favorite example is the Mediterranean sea. A long time ago it was very small. For some reason the basin flooded to make it the size it is now. Then during the Bronze age, some type of calamity hit and there were droughts, food shortages in the entire area from Italy around the Med all the way to Egypt.
This of course led to wars, mass migration and desolation. No human endeavor was the cause. The people who talk today about doom in a decade are modern day false prophets worshiping the gods of shoddy science and manipulated data.
I’d challenge the climate change idiots to prove that the earth won’t cool in the future instead of heat up. Global warming has been debunked but the ‘climate changers’ are still using the same old tired greenhouse arguments used to ‘prove’ a non-existent warming trend. All of which are irrelevant if the earth is entering an ice age.
