Why can't lefties separate pollution from climate?

    The insistence of the left to link pollution and climate is destroying what could be a world wide effort to clean up the air and water. No one wants pollution, everyone wants clean air and water. But when the libs insist on an unproven link between pollution and climate they lose the support of all people who have the ability to think and reason.

    I think we all know the answer. Liberals do this because their crusade is not about saving the planet, its about finding a way to impose dictatorial control over the lives of everyone on earth. Why? because in their little warped minds they think that they are so fricken smart that they know how we should live better than we do.

    Liberalism is a mental illness, not a political movement.

    wrong, the real problem is that there are just too many people on the planet. Overpopulation is the direct cause of 95% of the problems that humanity is having today. Medicine has eliminated plagues and most diseases, dialog has eliminated most wars. But we have not found a way to keep people from reproducing in record numbers, especially in the places that already cannot feed their people.

    the way to save the planet is to cut the reproduction rate. But that probably won't happen because screwing feels so good.

    Your hubris is showing. I hate to burst your bubble, but the planet has no idea you're even here. The planet will still here long after humans are gone and it won't notice our passing.

    What the fuck are you whining about?

    Because man is polluting AND screwing up climate at the same time you have a problem?

    BOTH are issues and in many cases related

    Exactly...we are screwing up the planet as it relates to OUR being able to inhabit it.

    Who cares if the planet is "still here" after we have destroyed our ability to survive on it?

    That's a pretty anthropocentric attitude.

    your ignorance is showing. pollution does not cause climate change. Human beings do not have the power to change the climate of planet earth, or even their backyards.

    climate is controlled by the sun, the earth's tilt on its axis, ocean currents, and the earth's internal heat. Man cannot affect any of those and CO2 is not a pollutant. It is a gas that makes up .039% of the atmosphere and without it there would be no life on earth.

    It is claimed that CO2 is causing global warming and climate change. Many also claim pollution is causing global warming and climate change, but CO2 is NOT a pollutant.

    humans will cease to exist on planet earth when their numbers reach the point that the food supply is exhausted, not because of soccer moms driving suvs or international air travel.
