    It's all about the money and power. The actually don't think we can affect change at all. India, China, and 3rd world countries are causing most of the pollution. The aim is control and subjugation.

    It's not about the climate - it's about changing our economy from Capitalism to socialism.

    We need another summit in the south of France where all the Hollywood elite and global leaders all fly on their private planes and stay on their private yachts planning on ways to tell the commoners to change or else.

    Because climate change is their vehicle for doing just that. They would use another ruse if they could.

    It's true that Democrats are mostly backing the worst solutions to the problem like renewables and hard caps on emissions.

    A REVENUE NEUTRAL carbon tax that lowers the corporate profit tax rate by the same amount it is projected to take in for a given year (and rolls any differences into the next year) is widely endorsed by many economists as the best way to put a price on carbon and let the market figure the rest out.

    It is also time to start having a serious conversation about geoengineering.  Specifically using high altittude jets to release particulate in the sky to dim the sun reaching the surface by about 1%.  This can be done for about $2 billion/year.  Which is DIRT CHEAP and would buy us the time to phase in changes to our economic infrastructure and thereby minimize economic hardship.

    We also need to free up the nuclear fission industry to be able to compete on a level playing field without government and litigation strangling it.  Fission is the safest energy source we have (see the WHO stats on deaths/kWh), it's zero carbon, it's waste is compact and easily collected and stored, and it produces reliable base load power that is the kind we need.  But liberals hate it because they have some misconceptions on how dangerous radiation is (hint: you get more radiation in an airplane ride than you would have if you were hugging the three mile island plant on the day it melted down).

    Sounds like a bunch of Republican lies to me!

    No surprise that you have no idea what Democrats are actually doing about climate change since you're a Russian troll. Climate change regulations are targeting businesses.

    Fossil fuels are currently being subsidised by massive taxes, so why is that ok?

    In all honesty , I suspect a static climate would be harmful to the planet .
