#2 No, I am saying let's not take any drastic action but instead be SMART and invest heavily in FINDING the right answers BEFORE we do stupid shit.
#3 That doesn't mean stop or even slow innovation in regards to new energy sources or conservation or efficiency.. that is just idiotic.
#4 My REAL concern isn't even the practical nature of any of this... I am here to white knight for SCIENCE. I want to stop the ridiculous scare tactics and more importantly I want to stop the ridiculous attitude of ABSOLUTE certainty that comes across like a bunch of ****ing Jehovah's Witnesses telling me I am not one of the chosen 144,000 going to THEIR heaven.
So with the reduction in research as part of the cut back in government spending, where will this continued research get money on all the fronts of efficiency, conservation and alternate energy systems. Will we get it from coal, oil and gas? Their economic interest is seems un-altruistic.
As far as being a white knight, you have offered no hypothesis to account for any change in temperature. That better solution would be a white knight. No you are a diligent skeptic. Needed but to accept that we can not have any level of understanding, that the physics applied to atmosphere cannot be done, is to leave the area to mysticism. And to being hijacked by those whose religion is profit alone.
