Climate Change, Global Warming, man-made or not, what does it matter? It doesn't. Here is the simplest way I can think to put forth the argument: Just for the sake of argument let's say all of the science, all of the scientists, all of those who agree that global warming is happening and/or is man-made are right, and we as the human race don't make drastic changes to slow or stop global warming (and other looming environmental disasters) then in a few decades our children and grandchildren will live in a wasteland where a gallon of water costs $20. Many species of animals that have existed for thousands and even millions of years will no longer be seen in the wild or may even be totally extinct. Outside of 30 latitudinal degrees of either of the poles and below 20,000 feet in elevation snow will no longer fall or maybe even exist. And the offspring of our grandchildren will live in a world that is polluted, without wilderness, and rife with wars over dwindling resources and think back to how nice it must've been in the 20th Century while they eat food manufactured in a factory. And they're grandchildren might grow up in dying world while the human race, as well as most life on Earth, resolutely face extinction. That could happen. We don't know. But research shows that it is a potentiality. Now let's say all of the science, all of the scientists, all of those who agree that global warming is happening and/or is man-made are wrong. But we change our policies to use less fossil fuel, to put less greenhouse gases into the air, to stop polluting the atmosphere and using sustainable methods to produce energy, for transportation, for food production, for use of water resources, and instituting a global fight against poverty, etc. etc. Then decades from now our descendents will live in a cleaner, greener world with less disease, famine, and poverty. We'll give our race the time to develop into more advanced civilizations and leave an honorable legacy for offspring and the world a better place than we found it. Are you willing to take that bet for short-term economic stability, comfort, and unwillingness to make personal choices that reduce your impact on the environment? Because if we don't and we lose that bet.... So which is it? A) Change and stop or slow global warming and/or live in a better world; or B) Not change and potentially ruin the world or, at the very least, not leave it better than we came into it?
