RedVentrue: Do you? Really? You could very well be right, and probably you are. It irks me that you guys treat it like a religion. Standard Dem Pillar of Wisdom #5. Humans are bad and the cause of everything bad on the planet.

Stop projecting your failings on to the rest of us. We trust the science, based on the evidence. We specifically do *not* take it faith, and we treat it like any other well-supported scientific theory. You're making the same kinds of ridiculous arguments as the anti-vaxxers and the creationists. Do you doubt biology or physics or astronomy the way you doubt climatology? Do you accuse people of treating those disciplines "like a religion"? Somehow I think not. Yet they use the same basic philsophical and methodological premises. The exact same premises.

So why do you cherry-pick? Because you've been told to by people who appeal to your knee-jerk partisan ideologies. Red team vs. Blue team! If'n those dadburned dimmycrats are fer it, then yerrrrrr AGIN it! No reasoning allowed.

It's absolutely shameful to watch.

And did you ever stop to think that it's not just the Dems saying this is bad? Did you ever stop to think that there are conservative climatologists who are Republicans who support this? They are out there you know. It's just that they happen to have the facts on their side.

As for global climate change being bad more generally, please get something straight. It's bad for US. For our society, our economy, our way of life. For the planet at large it's not going to be that big a deal. Weather patterns will change, some species will go extinct, others will change their distribution, others will evolve to fill the new niches created by all the changes. The planet has undergone much bigger changes in the past.
