'The existential threat of our time': Pelosi elevates climate change
This won't end until democrats get their treasured Carbon Tax, that's the only solution they've offered.

Quote:Democrats put climate change back on the forefront of their governing agenda Thursday, portraying the issue as an "existential threat" even as the caucus remains split over how forcefully to respond.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi brought up the issue in her opening address while touting a new select panel to come up with ideas on how to solve it, and the Energy and Commerce Committee announced that climate change would be the subject of its very first hearing this year.
Well is it Climate Change or Global Warming?

Talk to me when they start trying to discourage development in their coastal enclaves that supposedly are doomed to be flooded by rising sea levels.

Until then, its just a talking point that they don't understand or don't take seriously.

Talk to me when they go away from merely 'unpopular' school lunches and when they start enforcing eating crickets and serious efforts at population control

Until then, it's just for show and money.

Exactly.

Also, come talk to me when these same politicians, talking heads, and celebrities give up their limos, private jets, and multi-million dollar mansions.

Hard to take Nancy and the gang serious when they won't give up their creature comforts to help battle this "existential threat".....

Being a global warming alarmist is primarily a first-world phenomenon.

RE: 'The existential threat of our time': Pelosi elevates climate change
The people screaming "global warming" do not live their personal lives as if global warming were a legitimate existential threat. Nor do they propose the kinds of solutions that would be appropriate if global warming were a legitimate existential threat.

There are two possible answers:
1) They don't believe global warming is an existential threat, or
2) They are a bunch of hypocrites more interested in leveraging an issue for political gain than solving it.

I tend to believe 2). And as someone who at least recognizes the possibility that global warming could be a threat of some sort, I find that appalling.

IMO, it's #2. It's a political means to an end.

Because climatology is a fake science. While I am more interested in what real scientists say, I can also draw my own conclusions. The entire basis behind the scientific method is that all variables must be controlled.

Those same climatologists that make their living doing "research" that relies on grants & funding aimed at fighting "climate change"?

No conflict of interest there.

Not to mention, these guys have no clue what the "climate" will be in 5 years let alone 25.

Exactly. I’ll pay attention when climate change proponents change their own wasteful life styles to fit the carbon footprint they wish to foist on the serfs. As long as folks like Al and Nancy are too important to live that way—so am I.

RE: 'The existential threat of our time': Pelosi elevates climate change
There is only one energy source that is emission free that can make the emissions reductions on the scale the IPCC does. It's quite literally the safest mode of power generation (including renewables), yet it's the most feared by leftists and greenies.

When environmentalists are ready to talk real solutions instead of feel-good solutions I'll listen, but until then I ignore it.

Their funding has NOTHING to do with fighting climate change. It's the politicians' decision what to do with the information provided.

Really?

If they came out tomorrow and admitted the whole thing was a hoax or that they honestly don't know if the climate is actually changing, that funding would dry up instantly.

The existential threat of our time is most assuredly hot air. Most of it emanating from within the Beltway.

Still holding out hope that it's a hoax? Good luck with that.

And you could make that argument about EVERYTHING scientists are doing in any field. But this is the only area where people suddenly decide that they'd rather believe the CEO of a fossil fuel company than the people actually studying the issue.

Also, if they determined that the Earth is warming, but not due to humans, one would think you'd still want to study it so we'd know what we need to be prepared for and how soon.
