    The way climate change 'experts' are going about receding the impending disaster of climate change is illogical. One has to believe in the unproven theory of AGW to combat their notion of climate change.

    my issue is that we allowed these clowns to hijack an actual scientific term.
    Climate change is a real scientific term.

    Global warming is a theory.

    They couldn't push Global warming and people didn't believe them so they had to hijack climate change and make it this mean nasty thing
    when it isn't.

    all it does is show the level of dishonesty that these people will go to in order to push their agenda on everyone else.

    Yes and there's a taxation and changing of way of life in there somewhere. That's called socialism.

    If that were true then your generation would be the ones just starting out on studying climate instead of climate science being older than both of us.

    So yes, they're dreaming and not only that. But you seem to be tossing a **** load of speculation on how you should be believe. Because you've just attributed motive to something that wasn't even present in the first place. Being skeptical about climate change, isn't being anti-science and the last time I checked. My lean still fell onto the center-left of the spectrum.

    So the moment science can actually nail this stupidity down, with far less of a margin for error than it already has. Then I'd be more wiling to actually to believe the pro-climate change awareness movement, or whatever nonsensical names it's been given this time around. Seeing as when I was younger, it was still being called global warming.

    They should be mad, damn mad, because it's their future we're screwing up with our ignorance and refusal to act.
    LOL. In the US in particular nothing is more sentimentally idealized than "Youth" - those teenage children, passing hazily through a flood of hormonal excitation and two thirds of whom you never trust to babysit your child, are credited with a sort of other worldly collective wisdom and super competence, imbued with a special moral authority.

    Why so many of the left of center genuflect before altar of screaming Youth is not entirely clear. After all, they are the same youth treated at home or in school as far from idealized - they are awkward, unstable, and often uncertain of themselves . They swing violently between the extremes of self-abnegation and greed, they are insufferably frivolous, or insufferably bored. Their opinions are more crudely colored by undefined emotional urges, at this stage life, than at any other time. And because of their immaturity and youthful eagerness they blindly "follow the leader" more than any other age group, and are perfect raw stuff for demagogic molding. Not one of them in ten thousand would conceivably be trusted to make policies for his or her own family. But ten thousand together, as "a movement" should command the rapt attention of fawning adults?

    Why anyone would put a premium on their lack of experience and mental fuzziness as against intelligence and maturity? Or are you not aware that it is the emotional young people, more than any other, whose mobilization and movement in Germany and Italy who beat their civilization into a pulp?

    Finally, the absurdity of lionizing youth movements is most stark in its contradiction to the other meme of the climate change left, the claim that only well educated climate scientists are qualified to speak to global warming and climate change - whereas that the climate denialists and skeptics are all of dubious and poorly qualified backgrounds and should be dismissed.

    Airheaded hormonal fifteen year olds, on the other hand, now there's a climate change group we ARE supposed to swoon over?

    You may applaud their antics, cater to their pretentious self-importance, cheer their pseudo independence, and shed tears at their nobility - but some of us are actually serious and thoughtful about our convictions, and decline to do so.

    You've never seriously studied the climate or environment a single day in your life, but are arrogant enough to believe your opinion, based solely on your politicial lean is more qualified than all of the scientists in the field and all of the mountains of scientific evidence. It has nothing to do with these kids and everything to do with the science.

    The implication that these children invented climate change and thus it all should be dismissed are the ramblings of an uneducated lunatic. I swear to god science deniers are the dumbest mother ****ers on the planet. Ramble on.
