The San Francisco Examiner reports: “With an estimated 3 foot rise in California’s sea level expected by 2100, California Governor Jerry Brown is pulling no punches in dealing with climate change deniers.”
A new website aimed at rebutting those still in denial has been launched at Climate Change Facts. The governor used a recent summit in Lake Tahoe to announce the launch of the new website and to reach out to Californians with information on the science of climate change, scientific climate consensus, the deniers and common denier arguments.
For years the arguments over global warming have raged, with climate change deniers insisting that there was no evidence to support that man-made emissions have had an effect on the changing climate. Now, after various reports have concluded that man-made emissions (green house gases) have contributed to our warming planet and that we are indeed facing severe extreme weather events, the race is on to not only learn how to deal with our changing climate but how to slow down the process.
This is a sad “victory” for those that have been on the front-lines for several years warning of irreversible consequences if climate change was not addressed. The governor has been frank and forthright with this dire warning,”Humanity is getting close to the point of no return.” The newly launched website also states,”Just as we reached a point where we stopped debating whether cigarette smoke causes cancer, we need to end the climate change debate and focus on how to solve the problem.”
With record heat waves and record drought conditions in the United States along with a host of other climate change disasters, the race is on to counter the effects of climate change which will cause increased sea levels, more expected severe weather events including hurricanes, tornadoes and floods, along with billions of dollars expected to be spent on disaster recovery.
Recent polls have shown that 70 percent of people in the U.S. now believe in climate change. And, I think David Koch is proud that he can destroy Life on the Planet as We know It, while making a decent profit.
