    Hey Thinkin' Man - I'm curious about your train of logic.

    How does the climate change conspiracy relate to "doling out money to the developing world?"

    How does this conspiracy work?

    How does curbing CO2 emissions and finding alternate energy sources enrich the "developing world," at our expense?

    Have you really thought this through?

    (Punctuation edited) SLCDenizen: Denying science? No! Denying nonsensical 1800s economics made famous by Malthus. That's all this UN stuff amounts to: Economic and political nonsense made up using extrapolated and manipulated pretend science data to raise fears of too many people, too little food, and the need to tax and control everyone to protect the planet. Bunk! Sure climate changes. In the summer it is hotter than in the winter, and vice verse. If you come to Oklahoma, you will see the climate change from day to day and hour to hour. Always has and always will. But now, the wise elites think that they can create the changes they want with Geo-engineering. Or they want to start limiting the population with more birth control, abortion, GMO foods that haven't been sufficiently tested, and harmful untested vaccination programs. Sigh. When will they ever learn?

    An article about climate change? Bring out the cranks! Let them extol the virtue of denying science but embracing religion!

    Hype and nonsense! These dire warnings aren't exactly coming from an objective, credible source. The IPCC and related U.N. bodies are dominated by far-left-leaning bureaucrats and ideologues who stand to gain power and money by imposing global restrictions on developed countries and doling out money to the developing world. Using scare tactics is the oldest trick in the book.

    If the temperatures don't rise, what is the cost - with respect to all of these issues - in making the assumption that man can actually change the temperature of the world in any direction? What is the cost today, in believing that man has the ability to cause the earth's climate to change in any way? What did man do before when climate changed? What differences will there be, even without climate change?

    Why am I supposed to believe that man has any affect on climate change? While all should believe in being protectors of our environment, why must we all accept as factual matters which are not proven - and therefore not true?
