1) The idea that WE, the USA and the western world are responsible for "Global Warming", and that we have an ability to stop or reverse it. For every Prius or Leaf we buy, there are 20 peasants in the 3rd world countries riding more polluting mopeds, and buying more cars without pollution controls. Also, one volcano or forest fire will set back millions of $$ of environmentally "responsible" behavior.
2) Today, we still cannot predict if it will rain tomorrow or what the stock market will do in the next hour. Does anyone really think that they can predict what the average yearly temperature will be in a century or even a decade? That is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard of.. That is almost like we used to do human sacrifices to calm the weather gods, or think the world was ending when there was an eclipse...
This URGENCY to stop global warming is really a way for politicians to have the "moral justification" to control our lives and our pocketbooks. They are just chicken littles yelling that the sky is falling, so send us your money and we will make laws to protect you!!
So what is your suggestion? Do nothing? Let it ride?
Well that is not how the World works. We "have" to do something because our current actions are downright ridiculous. We are so bad in so many ways, its not a borderline call and hasn't been for decades. Little T was elected due to massive information misdirection that we are so prone to follow.
We knew he would not make a good president but he still convinced us not that he would be a good president, but only that he was the lesser of two evils and the most pathetic thing is the "greater evil" didn't really do that much wrong when compared to Little T's lifelong list of shenanigans.
As it stands, money is enough to control our actions and yes, that has always been true but with social media, misdirection has kicked into high gear. A modicum of truth is no longer required to sway our opinion...
