The debate rages on even though 97% of climatologist agree there is cause for concern. Increasingly the opposition is centered in energy funded "scientists" many of whom have no expertise in climate whatever. The sole remaining group that in opposition that has some credibility are the meteorologists, and the most vocal and visible are the TV weathermen. One of the stranger arguments seen on this board is, "Climate is changing all the time so therefore it is not our fault". Half true. Climate has changed, and in some cases has changed rather rapidly but to use this excuse to sit on our hands because we are reluctant to part with a few conveniences and a few bucks is regrettable. I find it odd that it is recommended that we stand idly by while the American Heartland becomes the Great American Desert. As with all things that are both political and expensive it will be left. not to solve itself but to run its course. And run it's course it will. You will be able to chart its course not by reported temperatures (they don't mean snot) but by something much more deadly. Hunger. Keep track of the famines, especially where they are unusual, Watch the price of food, especially grain and grain supported food. Watch the drought areas and observe how they contract, expand or shift. It is not in the news much now but pay attention to the ocean and the food harvested there. It is diminishing. Pay attention to the reasons why. There will be winners and losers, a lot more of the former than the latter. Cheers!
