    Something might actually have been done about that environmental disaster..and many others we face had the AGW scam not hijacked environmentalism and started sucking all the air out of the room and all the treasure out of the coffers.

    AGW has distracted from real issues and resulted in the waste billions upon billions upon billions of dollars that might have been put to good use addressing real environmental problems.

    Some warmers may ignorantly believe ocean litter IS the result of AGW.

    I hear it all the time...when you ask for evidence that man is altering the climate, they drift into pollution as if climate change and pollution were the same thing...they are useful idiots...they keep the money flowing into climate change and don't bother to notice that the climate change movement has done exactly squat towards cleaning up the very real environmental pollution that we have...nor will it. The climate change industry is about fueling itself...not doing anything to improve the environment.

    And the sad thing is that anyone who has fallen for the climate scam is probably lacking the very basic critical thinking skills required to see such a disconnect between climate and environment, or question the fact that the climate fraudsters have done nothing to address very real environmental problems...and very rarely even mention them.

    Yes...they seem to always go from AGW to pollution. Their thinking is pollution MUST be causing AGW, yet as you state, they are not the same. Just proves how easily warmers can be duped.
