Unfortunately politics is so completely ingrained in this subject that it's impossible to separate fact from politics. What we're talking about, IIRC, is 1/2 of 1 % of the CO2 in our atmosphere- that's allegedly the part man is responsible for according to several sites I looked at some years back. 98% of the "greenhouse gases" are water vapor and natural CO2 IIRC. Volcanoes, forest fires, etc. produce what man doesn't. And yet there's no sure fire way to simply stop it. Can't burn coal/gas/oil/wood, solar collectors in the desert create a micro climate that hurts the desert, windmills kill birds and "ruin" the landscape, can't have tidal generators or dams on rivers and of course nukes are just out of the question. So that leaves us where? For every alternative offered there are a mess of heavily funded groups ready to fight it to the death.
I don't know about you, but I get cold when it's 40 below and making the 45 mile trip to Super Wally World by horse back would really cut into my work time. I also like that whole running water and non-beeswax based light at night idea. So, since there's no alternative that anyone can agree on and since the gov and one mega-industry or another is going to make gazillions fighting or supporting whatever happens...I get a little jaded over cries of "global climate change". I get even more cynical when I hear people taking the moral high ground when they assume anyone not buying the schtick is some neanderthal that wants to dump toxic waste in the water and strip mine the world. Global climate change is a religion today, no more, no less. Religion and politics mixed up with heretofore unheard of power and wealth? Wow, that's never going to be something everyone agrees on!
