    •  I'd tend to agree except at this point it's (0+ / 0-)

      Politicized and counterproductive.

      I don't need to agree about why (man made vs. natural cycle) to know the weather is getting extreme and we need to do these various things to try correcting it.

      Yes, the solutions are based on the fact that there's too much CO2 floating around. The solutions have to do with correcting that. We do not need to argue about whether that extra CO2 is because of natural cycles or too many cars. We really don't. if there was too much CO2 in the air from natural causes, we'd need to find ways to correct it, including all options like not adding more with cars and dirty factory emissions. No, it really doesn't matter.

      I know we on the left want to get them to admit it, but this is reaching crisis. It doesn't matter.

      For the record, I am not a member of Courtesy Kos. Just so you know. Don't be stupid. It's election season. My patience is short.

        will not agree to change their lifestyles unless they know why. that's the problem.

        •  why is so their houses dont burn down in (0+ / 0-)

          a wildfire again.

          or so they can afford corn and meat and other groceries.

          or so they don;t have to spend 300/mo on the electric bill in the summer

          seriously, we liberals over think things.

            how do we decide which changes to make to stop it?

            That's why knowing "why" is crucial.
