Climate change is an increase in the earth's atmospheric temperature since the late nineteenth century. In politics the debate over climate change is centered on whether this increase in temperature is due to greenhouse gas emissions or is the result of a natural pattern in the earth's temperature.
This question is wrong, as the real problem has always been corruption/cronyism and failure to enforce property rights. Regulations are written by cronies more to the benefit of polluters than to our environment or property owners. Regulations have actually made it harder to sue those who harm our shared/un-owned resources, stealing property value, health and life.
government needs to regulate the pollution of the planet, not just for climate change; saving the planet is unnecessary, the planet will save itself. However, humans are capable of making the earth inhabitable for themselves.
Shame on us all if we do not!! Religion and politics talks about God. I can't believe this is how we show our gradituid for all the beauty bestowed to us on this planet. We are the Caretakers. Religiously this is an abomination to God to treat this world and all living creatures and each other so badly. Doing the right thing is to at least make an effort in thanks to Grace. For all
Yes, but not for climate change. I think that is unfounded for several contradicting reasons from both sides of the issue. However, the human toll through cancer causing agents is alarming and should have been addressed with more importance years ago.
Climate change is the single most impressive issue today. Govt measures should include education of youth and climate change deniers. Furthermore govt. should stop subsidizing animal agriculture which is responsible for serious greenhouse gas emissions
I view global warming as a consequence for our actions because of my religion. We have done it to our earth. We spend pointless money on it, but the government never says how we are going to solve it because there isn't an answer.
We are over regulated and it does no good. Gov fines a company but the fines never actually go to improve the environment a violator has damaged. Enforce the laws on the books and encourage companies and individuals to adopt and implement good environmental practices with incentives, rebates, deductions and reasonably priced expertise and equipment. Generously reward those who do good. Gov is not the expert, allow independent professional to do what they do best to preserve the environment. Ex: wind and solar farms do as much harm to the environment as strip mines. There are better solutions but Gov panders to big business and special interests and export pollution to other states or countries rather than support and encourage sensible local solutions. Stop doing that.
Yes, but nuclear power would have to be given the green-light by people. We already have ways of preventing nuclear disaster, and ways to re-purpose or rid radioactive waste from the environment and from manufacturing power.
Yes, but focusing on forcing global top 500 corporations and foreign countries to reign in practices that contribute to severe pollution is the most important. Green initiatives targeting middle and lower class Americans are classist and wrong.
