Denying Climate Change Is Like Denying Gravity

Global Warming Driving Extreme Weather

When people, organizations and corporations oppose efforts to reduce global warming and climate change, what are they actually fighting for? An energy policy that depends on hostile, foreign regimes? Energy policies that promote waste and inefficiency? Dirty energy and air pollution? Domestic exploration and development that contaminates dwindling water supplies? Short-sighted energy and transportation policies that grease the wheels of corporate greed?

If we let deadly carbon dioxide build up in our homes, it kills us. If we let carbon dioxide build up in our atmosphere it’s just as toxic, but slightly more diluted–with the compounding effects of trapping heat in the limited confines of our atmosphere.

We should fight deadly carbon gases just because of their toxic nature, let alone the potential to add to global warming and the more visible effects of climate change.

Unfortunately, some scientists have erred in their methodology and their politics. Just like the experts on the other side of the debate, they are not above stupidity. Extreme weather events and trends may not be conclusive proof for some people, but who can deny that air pollution, carbon buildup and deforestation are bad ideas for multiple reasons.

Indeed, the evidence of climate change is piling up in the form of extreme weather events in different places, extreme temperatures, droughts, floods and rising tides–depending where you might reside. The toxins in our air, water and bodies are piling up, too.

If we can’t rally to fight society’s contribution to climate change trends, then fight air and water pollution, deforestation, waste, greed, corruption and ignorance. The result will be a healthier and more sustainable future for all of god’s creations–especially your children and grandchildren.
