To paraphrase that immortal philosopher George Carlin- man is as much a threat to the planet as a flea is to a big dog; nothing more than a surface nuisance that can be wiped out in a heartbeat.
Think about it- there's only been heavy industry for the last 150 years or so, but the planet has been thru warming and cooling cycles for millions of years. How did the planet warm up enough to get out of an ice age? Must have been those SUVs that the dinosaurs were driving.
Also, we've only been recording temperature for a little over a century as well, so those reports we hear from time to time of "the hottest summer on record" must be taken with a grain of salt.
Can we be a little more responsible in our stewardship of the planet? Of course we can, but the whole climate change movement is nothing more than another way to transfer wealth and place control in the hands of a few.

are you stupid???

Yes, climate change deniers think they are smarter than 99.999% of scientists. They believe Rush Limbaugh instead.

Great. More "climate change" propaganda for our kids. Meanwhile, it has been reported that there is this great big thingy in the sky that is the cause of all of our weather, and weather disruptions. It is called the "sun". Even the Marxist climate "scientists" are conceding that solar flares and gamma rays from solar flares are THE causes of all things related to weather and climate. Man-made "global warming" is a myth and a lie.
