This post will probably offend some people but I need to get this off my chest.
The environment is a big topic, which means no one can predict exactly what will happen. There are several schools of thought and each does their best to discredit the others.
Common sense dictates that whether or not you believe global warming is caused by CO2 emmissions or by natural planetary evolution, the fact is that there are a heck of a lot of people on this planet using up resources and causing polution and that's a problem.
Can we at least agree on that?
And yet, I find otherwise rational people making the most far-fetched arguments against there being any sort of problem at all. Key words seem to be communism, conspiracy and Al Gore.
A summary of the key defense against global warming being true:
'Al Gore lives in a nice house. Therefore he is an evil capitalist lying about global warming to make money. The global warming message is a Communist plot. Therefore Al Gore is a Communist.* Communists lie. Therefore global warming is a lie.'
*Maybe he's a Communist during the week and an evil capitalist on weekends.
Feel free to leave a comment disagreeing with me but please don't use the C word.
I mean, Communism.
