We should ALL sign petitions to China and India and explain why they should follow our lead and do as we have done over the past 30 years.  We are doing our part so its time for them to do theirs right?

 

The US can not single handedly control the worlds emissions can we?

 

If the majority of the worlds scientists agree, the China and India should have no problem.  Their scientist do agree don't they?

jimc91,  A few quick notes about the study:

  1. It is not dated, but if people want to say it is from May 2017, that is fine.
  2. It does not list who authored the study.  That is troubling.
  3. I was trying to find exactly what dollars they were classifying as climate change dollars, but even looking at sub-links, the information is not there, only broad generalizations.

If you are interested I could go into more detail, especially where he got a lot of his estimates of $166 billion, when I have the time.

.  RE: ice age--Yup, we have all heard of it.  Have you heard that the planet is warming up at a record pace?  That the vast majority of scientists have noted this and concur that something other than natural occurances are taking place?

Did you know that the tipping point that triggered the ice age, is very close to the degree change we are seeing now, just in the opposite direction?

I'm sure you searched for evidence that this obvious event is not taking place.  Do yourself a favor, and search for evidence that it is--search for the truth.


How many degrees Celsius has the earth warmed in the past 100 years?

The climate has been changing for as long as the planet has been in existance.  Did you ever study about the Ice Age?

A billion, in America, is a thousand million. That would be written like this:

1,000,000,000

If we wanted to make a book with a billion dollar signs, printed 1000 per page as before and with pages printed on both sides, our book would be 500,000 pages long.  Now that's a very long book!

 

Imagine $166 BILLION!
