Enough With The Global Warming Pissing Contest!


Climate change 10,000 years ago would not have mattered much. Humans could just get up and move. In fact many were forced to move as climate change created the deserts of north Africa and the Middle East or as Ice Age glaciers moved south.

But we now have hundreds of trillions invested in infrastructure and agricultural zones based on the CURRENT climate and sea level of the past 2-3 thousand years. Nature has also found a balance where natural pests tend to be controlled by natural predators.


Climate deniers want to belief if climate change is natural, then we're magically out of the woods.
But even if humans have NO effect on the climate and ALL global warming were due to fluctuations in solar output or some other natural phenomenon, we'd STILL have to spend tends of trillions more to defend those coastal cities, deal with disruptions in our agricultural infrastructure, and deal with disruptions cause by new pests and diseases JUST TO MAINTAIN OUR CURRENT EXISTENCE. All this money COULD be used for the betterment of humanity... but instead will be pissed away just to hold our own.

Itís time to stop seeing climate change as a political pissing contest and see that bigger picture: we mess with the global climate at our own peril.

4. but yeast has adapted...

But we're drifting. Global warming proponents really need some better framing when responding to deniers who use the argument in the OP.

6. Deniers always raise new objections....

When one has a position they're determined to hold... then the more it's challenged, and the more you back them into the corner, the more they become like quicksilver.
