... while they back-stabbed them financially.

You should really sit down with your parents and tell them how you feel about them and ask why they screwed you over. It's not good to harbor all these evil feelings about your parents.

You have no idea what I really believe, because that knowledge requires higher reading comprehension skills than you possess. People with such skills know exactly what I believe because I've been completely honest in detailing what I believe and why. And I continue to believe those things that no one presents a compelling argument against. Your posts do not constitute compelling arguments, or even arguments in the sense of debate.

The solution to bad government is to replace it with good government, not to embrace anarchy.

Government is anarchy. The absence of government is peace.

Ohh wait, Dan really believes The Purge would happen, because people who have zero disposition to be sociopaths would completely change their psyche without government. I'm sure every psychologist out there agrees with that well documented phenomena.

Climate change is a problem that is both important and urgent, and thus should be handled right away

How you gonna make those foreign polluters obey?

This is like arguing that we should not try to stop terrorism simply because not every state is doing so. It's a retarded argument.

1. Pollution is cumulative. So the pollution we add matters regardless of what other states do.
2. Pollution is most destructive locally. More reasons why we should stop polluting our land, air, and water.
3. Yes, there are plenty of mechanisms for reducing world-wide pollution by all states.
4. There is the political will from other states to cooperate on pollution control. This was proven with the Kyoto Protocol.

The Only Nations That Haven't Signed 1997's Global Climate Treaty are Afghanistan, Sudan & the U.S.A. (Great company we're keeping.)

A total of 192 countries have signed and ratified the Kyoto Protocol, the 1997 treaty that's the closest thing we have to a working global agreement to fight climate change. That's almost every country, state, and even one "regional economic integration organization", according to the United Nations.

Saying that the United States can do nothing about climate change because we don't have the cooperation of other nations is completely wrong and beyond stupid.

Hater says

And there is nothing you can do to stop global warming. So stop scaring the children with dire scenarios and start lobbying to cut population and pollution, which are the REAL problems facing humanity.

Climate change is a real problem, and it's occurring right now and creating problems right now. But like most problems, it will get must worse if left to fester.

Your selfish and defeatist comment reveals your intent. You don't care that climate change is real or its effects are terrible. You simply don't want us addressing the problem. That is why you should not be respected. You have never been concerned about the truth or what is best for America, only preventing selfish people like you from being able to pollute and impoverish the rest of us to satisfy your own greed.

You are also wrong about there being nothing we can do to mitigate and prepare for climate change. If that were the case, you would not be afraid that we will do those things. We can start with pollution control laws and pollution taxes. As I stated, this is the free market solution. Allowing pollution is corporate welfare and letting the state pick winners and losers. Pollution is communism.

Hater says

And you think Al Gore didn't say all of the ice would melt unless you give him money.

He did not say that, and only an idiot would claim so.

The only people with profit motives are the polluters denying climate change. They are like the tobacco industry claiming that smoking does not cause cancer.

It takes a particularly immoral scumbag to lie when lives are at stake. How Unamerican is it to endanger your fellow Americans with lies? It's as bad as terrorism.

have you thought that entire nations that are dependent upon their agricultural industry to feed themselves will experience mass starvation?

That is another death scenario from the 70's, but we made it!

Are you seriously trying to refute the Pentagon's claims with that snarky comment? Sorry, but I'll listen to the experts rather than some ignorant armchair quarterback who has already presented so many debunked lies and refuses to admit that he's wrong even after being shown the real evidence.

Hater says

Dan8267 says

extreme weather creates more global humanitarian crises.

Name one "humanitarian disaster" caused by global warming since Katrina?

You are a fool if you think that the crises created by climate change will have climate change stamped on them. That's not how reality works. Nonetheless, we can be certain that climate change is causing crises because of a little thing called statistics. It's amazing how powerful math is.

With just a five foot rise...

at current rates that would take half a century.

Dan8267 says

Patrick says

"Sea level continues to rise at a rate of about one-eighth of an inch per year."

Just don't assume the rise in sea-levels will be linear. That would be batshit stupid. Nature rarely follows linear patterns.

The melting of ice creates a positive feedback which exponentially increases warming. Ice is white. When it melts, less sunlight is reflected back into space, and more warming occurs, melting more ice.

Comet hits earth, all life destroyed.

Let's get to work on that comet avoidance system. It will be costly, but don't you care about the children?

This is an idiotic comparison, coupled by the fact that we should be starting a program to prevent comets and asteroids from wiping out the Earth. But even if that were not the case, you'd still be wrong.

All I can say is that you must truly suck at business if this is how you think. As anyone competent in running any business in any field knows, there are two aspects of a problem: importance and urgency.

A problem is important if it has a significant impact. A problem is urgent if it must be solved soon or not at all. The very first thing you work on are problems that are both important and urgent, then urgent, then important, and you don't bother with things that are neither.

An asteroid or comet hitting the Earth and wiping out all of humanity is extremely important, but not at all urgent since its such a rare event. As such, a wise business man would start a non-rushed task to slowly and cheaply come up with a solution. That solution would not have to come anytime soon, but you can make a little progress every month.

Climate change is a problem that is both important and urgent, and thus should be handled right away. Any decent business man would acknowledge this and be pro-active in finding a solution.

All of this is obvious. You would suck at business.
