Edit: Oh and @Karalius: Yet you completely ignored Daemaro's post, and you totally contradict yourself by posting an off topic post in a thread that you want to have a rational discussion in...
I fail to see how is his post relevant to my post. Is it about the "cycles" ? I have been told that the ice that melts away (ice caps or whatever it is) never come back. They are gone forever. If it is not about that, I have no idea what you are referring to.
Also I don't understand how melting icecaps and rising water levels are off topic since they are the direct consequence of pollution/global warming etc?
I also don't understand why you wrote that post.
There have been multiple ice ages, swing and miss.
Overall not enough data was used in the OP and the follow post sums up the point of this thread...
Climate change has a lot more to do with temperatures; our atmosphere and wind currents are affected by the fluctuations in temperature and, in recent years, there have been more violent storms and what the video calls "extreme weather events." Then you have to take into account how crops and forests are affected everywhere because of unnaturally arid climates. Recently, in Washington state, I have seen three thunderstorms this summer alone. We rarely get thunderstorms. Why would we get them now? If you can provide me a logical reason (because I'm sure you are exceedingly knowledgeable on the subject of climatology) why we are seeing so many thunderstorms in Washington, I will cede my concern for our climates in the future.
Climate change is much bigger than "global warming;" it will affect everyone around the world. It has the potential to cripple food supplies. It has the potential to put human health at risk. It has the potential to destroy towns.
And climate change costs money. It is economically irresponsible to ignore this. Once things get bad enough, we're going to have to collectively shell out billions of dollars just to protect our own property.
You can take that as you will.
