The current counter arguments about climate change are less about facts, and more about rigid political ideology. The climate change deniers would have you believe that a 97 percent consensus on science facts is nothing more than a liberal bias of opinion. Remember, this is about facts. Scientific study. Research. Data. Painstaking analysis.
But the deniers, and the majority are conservative, refuse to accept the scientific community's studies because they are afraid that in the short term our economy will be stunted in its growth. But that is not true. When our president says we are going to have "clean coal, really clean coal," he does not seem to even realize that coal has been priced out of the energy market. Natural gas has won the competition of the market place -- and renewable energy is rapidly gaining its own market share.
We owe it to future generations to end this ridiculous challenge of fact and find ways to make the planet as equally hospitable for the next generation as it has been for ours. It is our deepest responsibility.
