CO2 in higher quantities isn't harmless. Medical studies have proven that.

Air quality due to man-made emissions is a problem, a big one. How we go about solving it is another issue. Without the burden of big-government regulation, harsh taxes, corporate influence from companies who would lose profits, and the general availability of cheap 'dirty' energy sources I'm sure the free market would have solved this problem by now.

But of course believing that any other party besides the government can solve a problem is crazy-talk.
That's the eternal lie, that the free market is some benevolent and all knowing being that would have fixed all your ills....if only __________ didn't get in the way.

Has anybody else gone to the website that you enter your birth date into it and see what the world population was when you where born was? It was less than 3 billion for me and it's over 7 billion now. How long do you think this can go on for?

Who cares? In a matter of months there will be -50F wind chill here. Crank up your CPU multipliers and keep overclocking those GPUs. Then fold with your pc whenever your not using it.

Wrong. The highest CO2 levels recorded are now less than 3 times the levels we see now (1000 ppm vs 390 ppm) and that was in the Cenezoic around 65 million years ago. You have to go back around 2 million to see CO2 levels comparable to today. Also global mean temperature was only around 2 degrees warmer and sea levels were 25m higher. Anyone wanna see sea levels rise 25m? It would be a complete catastrophe.

Pretty funny that I literally just finished an exam on environmental change and come home to this article. Anyway, something interesting to note is that the nature of the atmosphere is such that even if we stopped greenhouse emissions 100% right now, the Earth would continue to warm for around 100 years. Therefore the problem we've (well us and previous generations) created is going to be ongoing for centuries to come. Hurray! /sarcasm

It's either we control our population.

Or nature will do it for us.

Global Warming = one big scam to tax people

The only thing we should worry about is harmful chemicals being released and renewable resources.
