Arguing climate climate change doesn't exist is like arguing the derivative of x^2 == log(x). It just tells the informed reader you don't know what you are talking about (or linking to) and to ignore your assertions/analysis.

However, analysis of whether the impact of climate change is worth the cost of a (potentially?) premature transition to nuclear and renewables is actually worthwhile.

Regardless, we are switching to renewables (it's in the definition of renewable), or fusion ( basis of renewable anyway, thanks sun). What is the cost of delaying the transition and thus  terraforming earth's atmosphere? More importantly (probably), can we bootstrap civilization without readily accessible fossil fuels? Should we leave some in the ground in case we (inevitably?) fail/fall?

I hope you like parens. Thanks for coming to my ted talk.

So why bother with this discussion at all?  You clearly have no intent on changing your belief based upon evidence and/or science.

“One has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy.  We redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy.” – Ottmar Edenhofer, who co-chaired the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change working group on Mitigation of Climate Change from 2008 to 2015
http://www.investors.com/politics/editorials/another-climate-alarmist-admits-real-motive-behind-warming-scare/

The UN’s climate czarina, Christiana Figueres, has also been quite vocal in explaining that the UN’s imposing climate change agenda extends far beyond mere environmental concerns:
“It must be understood that what is occurring here, not just in Doha, but in the whole climate change process is a complete transformation of the economic structure of the world.”

“The inconvenient truth is that it’s not about carbon – it’s about capitalism.  … we can seize this existential crisis to transform our failed economic system and build something radically better [socialism, of course].” – Naomi Klein, This Changes Everything:  Capitalism vs. the Climate

The long-term prediction of future climate states is not possible.” – United Nations International Panel on Climate Control, 2007

Whistleblowers at the U.S. government’s official keeper of the global warming stats, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), claim their agency doctored temperature data to hide the fact that global temperatures plateaued almost 20 years ago.

Over 440 scientific papers published in 2019 are skeptical of climate alarm.

Hundreds of peer reviewed papers published in 2015 were skeptical of the “consensus” of human-caused climate change.

MUCH MORE SCIENCE refuting your panic is available.  You simply choose to ignore, reject and trivialize it with the pettiest of excuses.

Metro Rail went past me today in Irvine and I was unable to see a single passenger in any window.  This is "mass transit" courtesy of the Insane Left.

I met with Mayor Choi years ago pointing out the absurd waste of shuttles going back and forth from John Wayne Airport to the Irvine Train Station, empty.  Mayor Choi invited me and a functionary from Orange County Transportation Authority to make their case for continuing this $110,000,000 boondoggle.  Choi said "Public transportation only takes in an average of 10 cents for every dollar of expense."  I replied, iShuttle only takes in one cent."

But all this slinging money at nonsense makes the Left feel better about themselves and that's what matters to them, the media, Democrats, educators, unions, socialists and America-haters.

As earth day approaches (whenever that is) let us bow our heads and reflect....

“You think man can destroy the planet? What intoxicating vanity. Let me tell you about our planet. Earth is four-and-a-half-billion-years-old. There's been life on it for nearly that long, 3.8 billion years. Bacteria first; later the first multicellular life, then the first complex creatures in the sea, on the land. Then finally the great sweeping ages of animals, the amphibians, the dinosaurs, at last the mammals, each one enduring millions on millions of years, great dynasties of creatures rising, flourishing, dying away -- all this against a background of continuous and violent upheaval. Mountain ranges thrust up, eroded away, cometary impacts, volcano eruptions, oceans rising and falling, whole continents moving, an endless, constant, violent change, colliding, buckling to make mountains over millions of years. Earth has survived everything in its time. It will certainly survive us. If all the nuclear weapons in the world went off at once and all the plants, all the animals died and the earth was sizzling hot for a hundred thousand years, life would survive, somewhere: under the soil, frozen in Arctic ice. Sooner or later, when the planet was no longer inhospitable, life would spread again. The evolutionary process would begin again. It might take a few billion years for life to regain its present variety. Of course, it would be very different from what it is now, but the earth would survive our folly, only we would not. If the ozone layer gets thinner, ultraviolet radiation sears the earth, so what? Ultraviolet radiation is good for life. It's powerful energy. It promotes mutation, change. Many forms of life will thrive with more UV radiation. Many others will die out. Do you think this is the first time that's happened? Think about oxygen. Necessary for life now, but oxygen is actually a metabolic poison, a corrosive glass, like fluorine. When oxygen was first produced as a waste product by certain plant cells some three billion years ago, it created a crisis for all other life on earth. Those plants were polluting the environment, exhaling a lethal gas. Earth eventually had an atmosphere incompatible with life. Nevertheless, life on earth took care of itself. In the thinking of the human being a hundred years is a long time. A hundred years ago we didn't have cars, airplanes, computers or vaccines. It was a whole different world, but to the earth, a hundred years is nothing. A million years is nothing. This planet lives and breathes on a much vaster scale. We can't imagine its slow and powerful rhythms, and we haven't got the humility to try. We've been residents here for the blink of an eye. If we're gone tomorrow, the earth will not miss us.”
