But I also believe the planet has it's own cycles of natural Climate shift.
I'm not pouncing on you Mikem, or calling you a denier, but I'm just using your words as an example,
In this modern day and age, facts no longer matter. All people care about is opinions. This is how deniers peddle their lies: they believe
man-made pollutants aren't significantly impacting the environment. They believe
that this recent unprecedented warming trend is a natural phenonema. They believe
the data in support of climate change is either flawed or faked.
The nice thing about truth is that it doesn't give a damn what you believe. All that matter in this arena are facts, and all the facts point to anthropogenic climate change.
The word believe
should never, ever be used in these discussions. It dilutes the weight of the evidence, and it allows worthless opinions with no basis in reality to be taken seriously. Just look at Fox News. They're constantly smearing climate change, but if you listen closely, it's always just opinions and beliefs. Actual facts are few and far between.
The worst part is that most people don't even care. They see opinions regarding climate change as just as valuable -- if not more so! -- than facts. Until we can correct this horrifying delusion, I think we're all going to have a rough time of it.
