There's a lot of political bullshit out there. A WHOLE lot. Especially being an election year, though it tends to go on for two years these days. Plenty of issues for both sides to complain about and scream at each other about, people fighting for you to believe their side is right. That's all fine and good...well actually it's usually terrible and fucking disgusting, but that's not the point.
One thing I keep hearing is that these scientists are all full of shit and this whole climate change thing is garbage. I notice most of this is people screaming about how if it's really "global warming" then why's it snowing? Shut up. That's dumb. Climate change is about the earth itself being affected by all of us humans guzzling down fossil fuels and taking a dump on the planet.
So...for the sake of the skeptics, lets see about what good it would do to change from fossil fuels to clean energy. It will be a long process. There is a lot of discussion about job loss, but that's pretty hollow. The workers in current energy would have to learn new energy. That whole adapting thing that we've been doing since...forever. SO that's easy, we switch, make it a cleaner, healthier planet for us and the next generation.
Now this whole climate change thing. Let's say for a minute that there is even a 1% chance that it's real. We've already discussed all the good it will do. So what's your problem?
I'm not telling you to become a hippy and buy hemp clothes and go vegan. I'm just saying, maybe don't close yourself off to something that could very possibly be real. "Those dumb scientists don't know what they're talking about." I think you may be right, those stupid scientists and engineers and chemists, fools, the lot of them. They say not to drink bleach, idiots! If you think that all those scientists are full of shit, please pour yourself a bleach cocktail. Cheers to your convictions!
