    I'm doing my part as a good citizen to delay the next ice age. Have you done your share?
    Of course I have. I live in Texas where there is no such thing as public transportation and cities are spread out wide and far.

    I have always wondered, does US have trains that takes you from one state to another and if not, why not? Surely it'd be more cheaper and enviroment friendly than flying.

    Notice the shift in terminology by the enviroloons, it's not global warming anymore, it's climate change.

    How clever, climate change can mean anything.
    The change was because people who don't understand the theory seemed to think that because SOME places were getting cooler that it somehow debunked Climate Change - however, the notion that some places will get cooler (or that places will have cooler winters and hotter summers) is perfectly consistent with the theories and what is known about prior climate change events.

    Except that your choices is producing more pollution than someone who makes responsible choices and that is negatively effecting everyone around you - especially the environment.

    How can one "debunk" "Climate change"? Everyone except the AGW fanatics understand that the Earth's climate is essentially variable and that change is the normal process.

    Only the AGW fanatics believe that 1955 was the Optimal Climate Year.

    My choices are perfectly responsible.

    I don't want that ice age to come any sooner than it has to.

    Can't be more responsible than that. Certainly nothing wrong with making the world warmer from today, even assuming human activities have affected global climate, which is only an assumption.

    I am of the opinion that Climate Change is natural.
    Whereas Pollution is not.
    Mankind has polluted the Oceans to the extent that all forms of aquatic life are now being polluted, primarily via run off from the land of Agricultural products, Oil spills, Plastic waste, Heavy metals.
    The problem in the future will not be Climate Change as it may affect Humankind.
    Instead it is likely that by fouling our own backyard we will kill ourselves off.
    We kill off the food supply from the Oceans, then we ruin the land with overproduction and poison the ground we use to grow our food.

    Pollution is unacceptable because it violates your neighbor's boundaries.

    Carbon dioxide is not a pollutant.

    There is nothing responsible about lifestyle choices that puts pollution into the air, poisoning everyone else around you in addition to wasting a very finite resource that can not be renewed. Even if you don't believe that there is human-induced climate change, the wasteful use of fossil fuels is STILL an irresponsible choice.
