The question is not whether climate change is real. It has been proven that there has been a very slight warming of the earth's average temperature.

The questions are has man caused it? It seems that man is partly responsible but to what degree is up in the air.

The second question is can man change it or mitigate it? Al Gore admitted that even if we did everything that he and his organization recommend it would not make a significant change. By the way, Al Gore has made hundreds of millions of dollars because of climate change.

The third and most important question is, to what degree will this affect the earth and those living on it? Is this change in temperature catastrophic or is it something that will barely affect us? The answer to that is still up for debate. As Johnny said, many of the computer models have been wrong. Polar ice is not melting to the degree that was predicted. There are more polar bears now than there were in the 1980s. According to many of the alarmists, we should all be dead by now.

One more question is that if the warming is not catastrophic, are we willing to stop using fossil fuels and whatever else is contributing to the warming. The world runs on fossil fuels. They are an efficient and inexpensive fuel that we all depend on for transportation, heating, production and food. Everything that we touch or eat has gotten to us by fossil fuels. Can the entire world make a change to solar power? What would that take? How long would it take? Would everyone in the world agree to it? And would the total changeover result in a reduction in temperature that would change anything? This goes back to how much of this is being caused by man and how much is caused by volcanoes and cow farts.

Is climate change settled science? Yes and no. Yes, 97% of all scientists agree that there has been a slight warming of the earth. But they do not agree on all of these other questions.

And I have to repeat, Al Gore admitted that no matter what we do, we will not stop global warming. If you think that riding a bicycle to work is going to have any effect on anything, you're kidding yourself. In order to have any effect on the earth's temperature the entire world would have to stop using fossil fuels and that's not going to happen.

We as humans just have to realize that number one, we don't know everything and number two, there are some things that we just cannot do anything about.
