You may as well give up. I did.
The people who don't want to admit that humans putting all that CO2 back into the atmosphere that God worked for hundreds of millions of years to lock up in coal and petroleum can and will cause the climate to warm cannot be reasoned with. First, the religious ones refuse to admit that the CO2 in coal was ever in the air to begin with. They scoff, "Millions of years.... No way. The earth was created in six days in 4004 BC!" And science. That is irrelevant to them, because, as one told me, "Scientists don't believe in God and His creation, so their science is not valid."
Then there are the ones who have drunk the poison kool-aid put out by the likes of the Koch brothers, two filthy rich old men who want their fossil fuel energy companies to make them even richer.
And it doesn't really matter to either sort. I've had deniers from both camps tell me, "It doesn't really matter because we'll be dead before any real harm is done."
That's probably true, too. Future generations will look back from the devastation and privation that the world will be then and damn them, but... They're already dead.
Well future generations will look at all the debt created and will say the same."Dam them" we'll all be dead but the damage will already be done.They'll wonder why all you warmers drank the poison kool aid from Al Gore and say they got what they deserved.

After globull warming failed they switched to AGW, the beauty of that is they can use it to explain anything or deny anything. And they do.

Hey, this forum is global warming forum.

You must be in the wrong forum. AGW stands for anthropogenic global warming. Anthropogenic means caused by humans.

Your post is dumb.

Dumbest post ever. Capitalism is about wealth creation, not wealth distribution.
========
The 25-page report, written by Gates and his wife Melinda, who are co-chairs of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, argued that the world is a better place than it has even been before.
Gates predicted that by 2035, there would be almost no poor countries left in the world, using today's World Bank classification of low-income countries even after adjusting for inflation.
No one is arguing about 3rd world countries getting out of poverty. But unless the economic pie grows, capitalism cannot survive without it growing. Why don't you geniuses tell us how that can happen when all western countries are in negative population growth rates. Besides how do you keep building the pyramid and maintain the environment. Because if the economic pie does not grow that means your share becomes less and less especially if you are sharing that wealth offshore. That is exactly why the 1% er's exist, in the 60's 70% of the American population owned all the wealth of the country. That has eroded to next to nothing for the bulk of the population. Capitalism is the ultimate pyramid scheme, google that line and see what you come up with. Then explain to us how this trickle down stuff works and then you just might get a better understanding of how complex global warming is.

The worst thing is they have the chutzpah to play the victim while they're alive.

OK, genius, now calculate how much energy it took to raise the WHOLE OF THE EARTH'S ATMOSPHERE that .62C (1 degree F).

Tell us how miniscule that is.
