Come on conservatives and science deniers of all stripes. This is your chance.

Hello? Anybody there? Thought not.

Thousands? Who? You’ll find dozens, and they’re all hired kooks hired by oil and business lobbies. Who are these “thousands?”

Now developed countries are supposed to fork over hundreds of billions of dollars to undeveloped countries. What could go wrong there?

Carbon emissions cause lung and heart disease that affects the poor, costing both them and taxpayers.

Energy conservation, upgrades, and renewable energy provide quality jobs.

This certainly does not oppress the poor.

‘The best chance we have to save the planet’
The planet has been here for millions of years suffered, collisions with asteroids where the animals and vegetation were wiped but the Earth carried on, in effect healing itself. Now a group of politicians tell us now is ‘the best chance to save the planet’.
I think we have to save the planet from the politicians who are looking for another tax base. WE never hear from the thousands of Climatologists, PHD’s and other scientists who think this is scientific hogwash.

There needs to be significant investment in manufacturing, which will bring the power of economies of scale to bear on the price issue. Let us just please admit that skeptics of global warming are primarily interested in protecting the fossil fuels industries, or may be brainwashed minions. However, they are wrong or evil, because as the story points out, the benefits of greener local energy is stability, lower pollution, fewer wars. These in themselves are enough of a reason to get off the dinosaur juice.
