Absolutely NOTHING to be frightened about. It's been happening before we existed and will continue changing after we are gone. It's called natural Earth processes. Our climate has always been changing. It cannot be stopped or slowed down. I think a lot of kids are being indoctrinated in their schools to think and believe in a certain way.

Scaring children is the lowest of lows, but public schools, liberals, and the impressionable preach it to anyone who will listen.

I really worry for our future if this is how our youth is being educated or lack thereof.

Sadly, they love socialism. Which Im far more worried about than climate change.

Same people that drive around in their coal-powered cars, like Leafs and Bolts.

Did they take the time the to figure out how inefficient power generation is, along with power transmission loss, charger loss and battery losses?

The inside of my tailpipe in my large 3,500 lb car is shiny, and getting over 50 MPG average.


Ask not what your country can do FOR you; ask what they are about to do TO YOU!!

I remember hearing in fifth grade how glacier melt would cause large sections of the U.S. Pacific coastline would eventually be underwater, and that much of San Francisco, Seattle, San Diego, etc. would be uninhabitable by 2050.

Hasn't happened!!!

Then, global warming became "global cooling."

Then, global cooling became "climate change."

Climate change is still an en vogue term, but it is generally discussed in the context of arctic temperatures warming with time.

I agree with TheForce on this 100%. Certain species of Antarctic penguins and maybe some arctic seals & polar bears have reason to worry, but for humankind, this is only a very minor issue at worst. There are multiple other environmental issues that should be given greater attention than this one!
