Opinion: Climate change as a moral issue

"At the time the "scientists" were trying to sell us on the next impending ice age."

Scott, you still are basing your conclusions on inaccurate information. There were a handful of scientists who thought our aerosol emissions would have a cooling effect larger than the warming effect of our CO2 emissions, but they were the minority, and they corrected their mistakes.

The facts are available if you can stomach them.

"You won't help the environment so you must be selfish."
You really don't get that our economy is dependent on a stable environment, do you?

a) We can make useful predictions about the future based on science established in the 1800s.
b) The only people who's lives will be radically impacted by our shifting off of fossil fuel energy are the people making money off of fossil fuels. You have bought into their fear campaign.

Opinion: Climate change as a moral issue

"...there are a whole lot of scientists out there saying the opposite of what you're saying..."

Name one. The ozone layer has been depleted and that continues. I think you have misunderstood the fact that the rate of depletion has declined to mean that the ozone layer is back to normal. It does not mean that by any but the most imaginative interpretation.

Well Scott, again, there is such a thing as conservation of energy, this planet has oceans that have many times the heat capacity of the atmosphere, and the oceans have continued to warm. That's just reality. So, saying the earth's temperature is not increasing is more an indictment of your understanding than a demonstration that all the models are not useful.

Not sure where you are from Scott, but on this planet, we still have ozone depletion.

I know; if a scientist tells you something you don't like, they must be wrong.

Why do you think you know God's will any more than the rest of us?

The judicial branch is there to protect the minority from the tyranny of the majority. If it was a only a matter of votes, the minority would have no protection at all. Fair? It's not fair that you do not get to impose your views on everyone? That strikes me as an odd sort of fairness.

Yes! And on top of that, it is a little vindication that our system of checks and balances, executive, legislative, and judicial, does still work, even if it takes a dang long time.
