    All kidding aside, Obama has already stated that his inauguration marked the point in time when the world would be healed...when the seas would stop rising.

    His words, not mine.

    Why didn't those environmentalists do everything they possibly could to end it? Why didn't they ban ALL electricity, ALL gasoline, ALL methane gas if they KNEW that those things are causing climate change? They obviously weren't REALLY concerned about the Earth or they would've completely eliminated any and all poisons on our Earth.

    The 20th and 21st century environmentalists were just a bunch of Earth-haters who were raping the planet for their own pleasures. Anyone who says they were lovers of our planet are delusional and clearly revising history.

    Theres probably a threshold of greenhouse gasses that affect/do not affect the climate. I think the idea of stopping all human activity that requires powered technology is a bit outlandish and likely (likely ) unnecessary to end human caused climate change.

    We should, but we can't, unfortunately.

    Read post #17 and then the slavery/founding fathers thread.

    Damn it. Aren't these kind of baiting threads against the forum rules? If not, they should be.

    No one cares about people's pissing contests outside of the thread in which they originated. Believe it or not, some people actually take the subject of the thread at face value, instead of assuming it's a way for someone to call out someone else and show the whole forum who has the bigger cock.

    And it still doesn't change the fact that the founding fathers didn't end slavery.

    Re: Did the environmentalists of the 20th and 21st centuries end "climate change"?

    This wasn't a baiting thread. It was a simple question to make a point. Environmentalists don't advocate completely eliminating every single thing they believe is causing the death of our planet because it would mean total destruction of our economies. If the founding fathers would've completely eliminated slavery immediately, it would've devastated our newborn country. The economy of the south would've been totally collapsed on itself. These things have to be done carefully with baby steps.

    Do we agree?

    If I cared, I probably would have posted in the Founding Fathers thread. But instead I posted in a thread about the environment. If you didn't want to discuss that subject, then why would you make a thread about it when there is already one about the subject you DO want to talk about?

    Nor does it change the fact that 21st century environmentalists won't "save the planet". By the way, I voted "no" on the other thread. Obviously.
