City to showcase climate action plan - Some people still deny climate change because there are always people who deny the tough stuff of science. Others don't deny it but think people don't cause it.
The words in the title of this blog appear in the article. So I guess people like myself and a number of others with better credentials than my miserable BSME degree and who do not agree that manmade CO2 is the principle cause of global climate change are all uneducated. Let us not let the mere fact that the Earth's climate has changed for millions of years prior to mankind's existence confuse the issue. And obviously man has much more impact than solar flares etc. I, for one, have no doubt that mankind's combustion of fossil fuels and deforestation of vast areas of the planet have had an impact and have read no papers by reputable "deniers"--as they are frequently labeled--who insist man has absolutely nothing to with climate change. They do however question the science that ignores all other factors in the rush to blame anthropogenic CO2 as the principle cause and claim that we must cease burning fossil fuels at all costs--especially when it means destruction of economies of OECD countries just so the "developing" countries can burn coal in completed uncontrolled (from an emissions standpoint) coal-fired plants.
I am sure the plans to set up carbon exchanges and other such emissions trading firms has nothing to do with the emphasis on manmade CO2 as the principle cause of global climate change (or was it global warming; no, no, it was global cooling).
Maybe the line should have said "The people who have gotten it are brainwashed..."?
