If we are wrong about global warming but act to prevent it, we still benefit from cleaner water and air and we develop a renewable energy source. If we are right and do nothing we have a huge problem. Lets be cautious. We don't want to treat the environment the way we have treated the economy...always assuming the best.

Yes, we finally have an administration that won't redact climate change data from government scientific papers. It's happening people.

All caused by too many people in America and the world. And the best action to slow or stop global warming or climate change would be a zero-immigration and zero-population growth policy for US and the world. A one-child policy for the world. Nothing else will make a dent in the problem unless we curb human overpopulation. It will give us a chance to solve the problem. Oherwise, it is hopeless for the human race. We must control our numbers or we are all doomed or headed for extiction.

7 billion people in the world and growing! This is not helping the problem. Its a populaton explosion! Remember that population grows exponentially if not held in check, like compound interest!! How much more can the earth take??? The earth has a fever and is not well. This is our spaceship, our one and only spaceship earth, so lets not destroy it.

We won't have an economy if we destroy our environment, destroy our planet. So, lets put the Earth and the environment first and foremost. Clean water, clean air, etc.....you cannot have it with human overpopulation, greed, and capitalism. We must change our ways or we will perish from the earth. Look at the pollution and overpopulation in China! The air is not fit to breath! They may have a good economy for the time being, but its killing them! Lets put the earth first and the economy will take care of itself.

"The change in political leadership allows for, shall we say, a fuller and open vetting of what climate change means to us," Seeley said. "I think we have people who are more willing to listen and engage on this topic," Seeley said. j I thought Obama was president for the last 4 years also?

All we need is a Republican party that accepts science (heck, not even science, just the acceptance of what is already happening outside our doors), and then works to offer market based solutions to solve the problem. We have great minds and a great system, but pretending the problem doesn't exist to keep open the spigot of campaign money from oil companies has to be changed.
