You are reading page 30 of The Myth of Climate Change. If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

Being the compromising centrist that I am, while I loath the writer of the blog in the original post, perhaps we can work with the idea that he states that it can't be good to dump gigatons of pollutants into the atmosphere.

In the ongoing battle. Maybe it's a good thing to have someone that doesn't believe in climate change as the chair of chairman of the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology, because he's willing to dig further. On the other hand, you have to watch that political agenda.

On a side note, republicans stand alone in the world as the only political party denying climate change:

New U.S. Climate Assessment Forecasts Dire Effects On Economy, Health

November 26, 2018

The Trump administration released a major climate assessment on Black Friday, the culmination of years of research by the country's top climate scientists. It's well over 1,000 pages and touches on a daunting range of topics.

President Trump said Monday that he has read parts of it. "It's fine," he told reporters at the White House, although he said he doesn't believe the report's assessment that climate change will cause devastating economic impacts for the U.S...

This is an opinion piece:

CNN keeps letting guests and paid commentators lie about climate scientists

It's not true that scientists do climate research to get rich, and CNN knows it

CNN has let at least three commentators argue this week that scientists are warning the public about climate change because they're getting rich by doing so -- a ridiculous and patently false claim.

CNN knows it's ridiculous and false because the network ran a fact-checking segment debunking the claim and interviewed a climate scientist who explained why it's wrong. But even that didn't stop the network from continuing to spread the lie.

To make matters worse, the three people who made this lie on CNN -- former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA), former Rep. Tom DeLay (R-TX), and Trump-boosting economist Stephen Moore -- have themselves been the beneficiaries of fossil fuel money, but CNN failed to disclose that information...

Four years later, may the writer of the original post rest in peace (someone I said above I loathed), there's still this.

My stance has been clear on these forums for years, that even if we can't agree on the cause, we should by now agree that it's happening and what can we do, if anything to prepare. Also we have to agree that dumping metric tons of pollutants into the air isn't a good thing and we should see what we can do to stop that.
