I appreciate your comments on climate change, but you missed my main point, that we are often we are being frightened over climate change with bogus information. The left uses climate change as a political weapon for control and the right is in a bit of denial trying to fight the misinformation. Some teachers are telling only one side of the issue.
Students are often not informed about natural causes of climate change, over which we have no control. At times in history CO2 concentrations have been much larger, and other gasses may be more dangerous.
I personally debate that 97 percent of climate scientists agree on man’s contribution. Some papers challenge man’s contribution level. I think scientists who disagree are often not published.
Recently I looked up Polar Bears and found conflicting sources as to their decline versus abundance.
Human activity contributes to climate change, as do volcanoes, melting permafrost, depletion of our rain forests, etc. US pollution is less than China and Africa. The little we do at enormous cost is political control for minimal benefit.
I reject those who do not look at the entire picture. We have seen many false prophets over the years. Sources minimize man’s contribution as well as the reverse. I have been in medicine for over 45 years I can attest to the manipulation of data in all aspects of science.
