    Umm because then we'd be in the technological and economic dark ages for the rest of human history, and it would involve the near-immediate death by starvation of at least 80% of humanity.

    I need to find another liberal.
    You know, there are people who do not fall 100% with their ideological identification. I do believe climate change is occuring and that we are at least partly responsible for it...

    Now as for Environmentalists ending climate change

    Unless somehow extremist environmentalist gain power and stop all greenhouse gas emmisions (man made of course) then no they would not have

    What is more likely is something similar CFC production, environmentalists, along with scientists influenced politicians world wide to end/limit the use and production of ozone depleting chemicals. The environmentalists did not end the production/use of CFC, but influenced those that did

    Another global warming thread? Really? Whatever happened to the old one? I was having fun reading posts standing reason on its head trying to deny scientific research.

    The last one ended here.

    And no, we can't stop global warming, not by any practical means.

    Absolutely! Now why didn't the Founding Fathers who were anti-slavery work to immediately set free every single slave in America? Why the compromise?

    The environmentalist movement of the 1970s gives it the particularly liberal flair.
