It's sad because the exact opposite is what can and does happen.

The truth is that it will hurt the coal and oil companies.

Coal is already suffering.

Oil will do all it can to prevent the same thing happening to them.

No matter that it's literally killing our planet.
You are hysterical. The planet would barely notice a nuclear war that created a severe nuclear winter and exterminated the human race. It survived the meteor impact that largely depopulated the world before and killed off all large mammals and dinosaurs.

No, we are simply aware that extreme weather conditions happen and prepare for them. Unlike New Orleans that doesn’t prepare for hurricanes and then begs the government for help when it’s too late. If you want a laugh, compare Los Angeles’ disaster preparations (earthquakes) and New Orleans (hurricanes/flooding). I’m not sure that N. O. Has had a disaster drill to this date despite its Katrina experience.
New Orleans completely revamped their levee system. This new levee system just held up against a cat4 hurricane.

They’ve been starving in Africa for a century or more. Peter Paul and Mary even had a song that mentioned it way back in the mid sixties. I can’t think of the exact lyrics right now, but they went something like “they’re starving in Africa, there’s strife in Iran, there’s hurricanes in Florida“.
Yes, they have been

And the response from the industrialized nations should not be to make it worse

China s making major changes to their energy consumption. They have to.

They are also leading the world on alternate energy R&D
A field we have neglected
Yeah, they are building hundreds of coal fired power plants and raping Africa and Asia for raw materials to make car batteries.

You embarrass yourself. They make no profit. And you just provided a fine example of the stupidity we were talking about a few minutes ago. Thanks.
They don’t? Everyone there draws a paycheck for a job that wouldn’t exist except for global warming hysteria. Bureaucrats always increase their power and control, it’s the nature of the beast.

We can Engineer our way out of most of the problems,
But we engineered our way into this problem. The least we can do is to apply engineering now to alleviate the disease somewhat, instead of just letting our kids and grandkids treat all the symptoms.

"Think of the Children"

The issue is the only solution I have seen so far from the left is socialism to cure AGW, hence my accusation of all of them being 'Watermelons" i.e Green on the outside, red on the inside.

The person you replied to is contradicting all republicans say about blue states.

They constantly say we have much higher taxes which is true.

In just the last decade the people of my blue state voted to raise our gas taxes and impose a new tax on our vehicle tabs.

The increase in our gas tax was to build and upgrade our roads.

The new tax on our vehicles is to build a new light rail system, increase public transportation and add new lanes on two of our interstates.

All paid for with state tax dollars from new and increased taxes.

We also have been making those new adjustments to combat global warming. Such as storm surge walls along waterways. The latest flooding was minimized in small towns such as Mt. Vernon so that their small town wasn't destroyed by flooding.

The last thing a red state is going to do is pay their own way.

They wait for federal tax dollars to pay for most of everything in their states.

They don't properly tax their population so they don't have the proper tax base to maintain their states
Republican s seem to be full of contradiction these days.

They live by Village rules. Now every type of storm will have names added to them. "Drizzle Tragedy Alma" will be made a terrifying life and property ending part of many agendas.

Then you aren't paying attention. Sounds like a "you" problem.

All the solutions involve me lowering my standard of living while the elites keep flying to meetings to crow about how doomed we are.

Again, a you problem. Pay more attention, I guess.

You can't give a real response so you play dumb, or slick.

All solutions to the "problem" involve lowering my standard of living, more government control over my life, and less freedom.

You seem to be under the impression that there has been any substance at all in your silly posts. There has not been any.

So why is NY State banning the sale of ICE cars by 2035?

Why are gas prices going up?

Why are watermelon types screaming we need MOAR GOVERNMENT or we are DOOOOOMED?

Lets see…

Reduce our reliance on fossil fuels
Increase efficiency
Reduce consumption of plastics
IOW, the steps America has already been taking in greater measure than anyone else. AGW is about power, money, and control. India and China pollute FAR MORE today than America has in decades. Take the scam to someone who believes you. The planetary temp is rising but no more so than it has from natural cycles in the past.

As they have been for many decades. That's about overpopulation more so than climate change.
Yea….and now it is getting much worse
But then again, Conservatives dont care about what happens to people in Trumps “shithole” countries
