by anon-a4e4 I don't think there will be effective action that stops the process but science may help address the problem. And sadly we will allow the world's ecosystems to burn and the species to disappear but we will survive on a sad and hot world. I can imagine the virtual safaris, the artificial snow mountain under "Igloo Land", the last cold place on earth (climate control of course), mass starvation, displacement and conflict amount the poorer nations - but the rich, sorry I meant, will survive.

By Dan Anderson Mark - There is a plethora of evidence that shows that the current climate change is at least contributed by humanity in a very major way. Nature does not act and react as fast as what is happening now.

Now, Mark, where is your objective evidence that these legitimate sources are lying?

by anon-a4e4 For some reason, Mark - who is otherwise intelligent - is unable to absorb this information. It leads one to wonder what is wrong with the world, with humanity and especially with Conservatives who simply no longer want to believe in facts. The concept of "alternative facts" has incredible been embraced by them and science can now be discredited at will. The internet is a big part of the problem - anyone can find "evidence" for anything.

Mark, I wonder why you believe the earth is round:
