The debate over climate change is pretty much split across the ideological lines. It is becoming more of a left - right issue than it is an issue based upon truth. What is the truth about climate change? It seems nobody knows. After all, we are a species that is in constant adaptation to our planet. When changes occur we either alter our lifestyle or move to a different location.
Who are we to believe? Many claim that thousands of scientists all agree that the earth is getting warmer but on the contrary, there are also thousands that claim the data doesn't support the change in climate is caused by man. Ideas and claims abound on both sides of the issue, but are any of them concrete?
What have we been told? The political leaders have told us that global climate change is real and imminent. Their solution is to take money and throw it somewhere. I feel that is about as useful as picking up a handful of raked leaves and tossing it into the wind. In order to make their points, they are using deceptive means. These deceptions include showing photos of polar bears eating the cubs. The politicians claim the polar bears are in survival mode and can't find food. This is a complete fabrication of the facts. Polar bear males will kill cubs that aren't their own, pretty much like many other animals will. To claim the bears can't find food is a complete fabrication focused on emotionalism and falsehood in an attempt to sway opinion and create an impending sense of doom.
Our planet has been around a lot longer than any of us and it has within the atmospheric orb, a well balanced system of cleansing itself. The planet is a lot bigger than mankind collectively and what's troubling is those politicians that don't know what they are doing, are trying to correct a problem that may or may not exist.
