Figure this out... 1. The Parties underline that climate change is one of the greatest challenges of our time. The Parties emphasise their strong political will to combat climate change in accordance with the principle of common but differentiated responsibilities and respective capabilities. Recognizing the scientific view that the increase in global temperature ought not to exceed 2 degrees and on the basis of equity and in the context of sustainable development, the Parties commit to a vigorous response through immediate and enhanced national action on mitigation based on strengthened international cooperation.

Science indisputably shows that the temperatures in the past have been changing by much more than by 2 °C and they will continue to do so in the future, without adverse affects on life, and whether or not humans will contribute a small part of it or not. But we're so powerful that if we say otherwise and claim it is science, almost no one will dare to point out that we are crackpots. Also, science only studies how things work - and not how they "ought to" work which is always a moral or political question. But if we even say that science says that we "ought to" keep temperature in certain interval, we surely sound smarter (at least in the eyes of the stupid people) and imbeciles like us simply love to look smarter.
