    Well, how convenient for you. Very little thinking required. You can go on autopilot, now!

    So, in your unmatched wisdom, is there ANYONE who cares about climate change because they care about the planet their kids and grandkids inherit?

    You could confiscate all the wealth from every billionaire in the US and it wouldn't make a dent in the kind of money the loons want for the bullshit. So who the fuck do you think is going to make up the difference ?

    "The loons"

    Ah yes, the loons that have so much power... And then there's scientists, just asking everyone to try to slow the process of taking fixed carbon out of the ground and putting it in the atmosphere. Are they loons, too?

    Our crisis of environmental injustice is the result of decades of discrimination, environmental racism, and choices by our government to put corporate profits before people. It is unacceptable, and it must change.

    WONT SOMEONE PLEASE THINK OF THE CHILDREN

    If you had science on your side, you wouldn't have to fear-monger and exploit children.

    Well, as it turns out, we won't have to fleece all the rich, or all the corporations. We have smart people that know things, and we should give them nice sums of money to develop better tech. We simultaneously put pressure on emissions, using, among other things, the Carbon tax. We incentive businesses to meet targets. Trust me, all the rich people will still be rich. You can stop weeping over the mere possibility that, one day, they may not be rich. They can't hear you.

    The New York Times is full of shit, of course.

    If the situation with so called "Climate Change" was as critical as their story says, the true believers on the stage in Westerville last night would have spent at least an hour out of the 3 chatting about this.

    They barely mentioned it.

    Sure, we can tax the people to fund scientists at major energy concerns like Exxon Mobil to develop new technology. But there is no guarantee with research, or that the new technology will actually work.
