Yes, Earth’s climate is changing (it’s getting warmer) and no, there’s no need for immediate panic. That still sums up the current state of affairs re: climate change/global warming.
The major problem comes to light through the politics of the issue. Why is it that Progressives are all in a dither about it (global warming), while Conservatives seem to play down the situation (climate change)? It turns out that the Progressives’ solution is to throw massive amounts of tax money at the problem and fatten government in the process—to stop progress while they try to figure out how to stop or even reverse the phenomenon.
Well, the fact was stated at the outset of this piece: warming is happening and man can’t control climate. Then what to do? Do we just sit and wait to be burned away? Or do we do something, even if it’s wrong or even useless?
