Getting back to the original question: am I worried about climate change? Check back with me in about 300 years.

...

"We decided to move to The Villages, because of its height above sea level. "

Our former President just bought a place on the beach up north. Apparently, he's not too worried about rising sea levels?

If there is no willingness by governments, only lip service to tackle the problem of pollution, all the drum banging and protest marches will acomplish nothing.
The world is ruled by major industries, oil, automotive, chemical, arms manufacturers etc.
Those companies are ruled by the share/stock holders, which are the major banks and financial houses.
Cleaning enviromental pollution will cost an almost immeasurable amount of money to those companies, which will decimate returns and profit.
Good luck with that then!!!

The earth has been warming from the end of the iceage.
And that is a “fact”

Man can slow the warming of the earth with responsible energy policies for the sake of our grandchildren, OR, we can ignore the issue so we can witness the destruction during our lifetime.

I challenge you on that. We can't get enough of "man" to agree to do all that is necessary to slow the process.

At this time.

Are you willing to give up your engines?

I drive an electric golf cart because, yes I will give up my engine rather than throw up my hands in hopeless defeat without trying. I guess I have more faith in my fellow man than you do.

Do you also drive an electric automobile? Do you realize that the electricity for your golf cart is generated with fossil fuels and the manufacturing and recycling of your old-technology lead-acid batteries also consume fossil fuel generated energy? Just to put things in perspective, about 400 millions gallons of gasoline are consumed daily in just the US alone.

Sir, my auto of choice is the PRIUS. We have solar panels on the roof of our house. I don’t know if I am right, but I know I am trying to help.
