Climate Deniers

26 Apr


This is a photo that was posted by @BarackObama on Twitter recently:




Apparently, the millions of us who don’t believe that human beings are causing global warming Climate Change are nothing more than “climate deniers.”  The vote that they are referring to was actually a vote on an amendment proposed in 2011 by Rep. Henry Waxman (D-Calif.) that read: “Congress accepts the scientific findings of the Environmental Protection Agency that climate change is occurring, is caused largely by human activities, and poses significant risks for public health and welfare.”

Millions of people, myself included, believe that the planet has been warming for quite some time.  We just don’t believe that it is due to human activities. We believe that the Earth does what it wants, when it wants.  We can’t stop rain, snow, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes or volcanoes, so how is it that we are supposed to be able to stop the planet from warming?  Sorry, don’t buy it.

Scientists claim that there have been at least five major ice ages in Earth’s past.  Did human activity cause each one of those ice ages to end millions of years ago?  With no SUVs, no ships, no airplanes, no coal industry, no Big Oil, etc.  What were humans doing millions of years ago to end each of these ice ages?

I am all for everyone being more responsible, I just don’t think that paying higher taxes is going to stop “Climate Change.”
