Whether you believe in man-made climate change or not; you cannot dispute the fact that the oceans are warming, ice melt is taking place, and sea waters are rising.
All you have to do is look at the pictures of the earth over the last 20 years and you will see remarkable changes in the amount of ice in certain locations. Greenland's glaciers are falling into the ocean, Arctic and Antarctica are warming and ice is melting at a rapid rate. Sea levels are rising and that's a documented fact. It is also a documented fact that ocean temperatures have been rising over the last 20 years.
The question is what is your plan; when large cities on the east and west coasts are being taking back into the ocean? What is your plan before Miami, New York, and Los Angeles become submerged in ocean water?
It is not a question of if this will happen, but how soon will it happen?
If you go by the most conservative forecasts, you’re only talking the next 20 to 30 years.
I have a newborn grandchild and I would hate to see a world where she has to grow up in total chaos caused by the effects of climate change.
So my question again for my conservative friends; what is your plan to mitigate the damage of climate change, even if it is not man-made?
Actually if you listen to scientists who believe that we are at least partially responsible for climate changes based on carbon (CO2) being pumped into the atmosphere; we are past midnight, there is no turning back the clock. The damage is done and there is no reversing the effects of climate change. The effects will continue on to the earth finds a balancing point.
So the question again; not only just for my conservative friends, but all of us and all in government, what is the plan to mitigate the effects of this catastrophe?
