All you have are repetitive insults? Why not discuss increased Antarctic ice, no warming or a miraculous carbon tax that will save us from man made catastrophic climate disruption? Not up to the challenge?
If a carbon tax won't do anything, then you may as well stop wearing those seatbelts when driving, how about taping your mobile ph to your ear or stuffing your mouth full of cigarettes because science has shown prevention is far better than cure. However with your lot, you insist on catching the disease first rather than taking the shot. Climate change will just keep getting worse unless you are prepared to adjust your lifestyle, the only way to make you do it is through your pocket like anything else in this world.

If the President doesn't think it's a priority, why should I?

He went to 3 fundraisers yesterday. Not 1. Not 2. 3

He should be meeting with industry and government leaders in a climate change roundtable.

USA is only a fraction of the globe. Look up as percentage, LOL.

Global climate change is not uniform, duh.

A "shot" or cure, is a specific treatment for a specific and throughly understood, identified and isolated "disease". The carbon tax is a punitive measure imposed on the so called perpetrators of a hypothetical condition, with the "victims" to be named later. The real life effects of this impalpable calamity, global warming, are likely never to manifest themselves on any contemporary individual. A carbon tax, on the other hand, will be very real, very punitive and very permanent. Nobody will see its benefits. Nobody but the government, that is.

As it now appears, it's anything they say it is. My guess is it'll be an unexpected but predicted, naturally occurring anomaly, directly or indirectly associated with man caused climate change.

What we normally forget when talking about the amount of CO2, is the significance it has for the human (and other creatures) health. Above 425 ppm in the atmossphere the healthproblems will become more servere, because the blood will slowly be more acid. This will affect bloodpressure etc.
BTW: President Johnson was informed in 1965 about the dangers in increasing the amount of CO2.
there are too many of us, growing more many even as we speak. The thing is there is entropy, something this economy, this ravenous beast, hates. We learn to take a step back, we need to take a step back, from our manifest destiny. In time all that is promised may come to pass. A mad cascade towards extinction is not part of the plan. Stu

In the alternate-reality "science" of the warmists there is no accountability nor memory of inconvenient truths.

If only all the over-population doomsday crowd would depopulate themselves, this "problem" would fix itself.
