Vox, I will happily make Greta Thunberg my moral compass if you and your "journalists" all agree to go and live an agrarian, completely carbon neutral lifestyle. Doesn't matter how you achieve self sufficient carbon neutrality it but then hopefully you'll be inspiring the global population by leading by example. Now, off you go! Oh wait, sorry, I forgot. You won't act unless people you consider to be authority figures force you to live in austerity - eat only local produce, live in a tent, eat bugs and insects or worse still, slowly starve on a "vegan" diet and give up any form of manufactured goods that are not carbon neutral - while they carry on living in houses, eating steak, flying around the world and pontificating to the rest of us about how it's all our fault.

My choice didn't make the list. Here it is: Attendees to a conference or symposium about climate change must walk, bike or take public transportation to the event. No one will be permitted to arrive by aircraft, private jet or automobile. If they can't walk or bike to the event, they can attend via the Internet. Also, no meat will be served at the event. If they want protein, let them eat insects so they won't contribute to "climate change" because of "cow farts." How's that for moral clarity.

There is no such thing as man made 'global warming' or 'climate change'.

It is a SCAM to steal working Americans money so a bunch of UN fags can steal our money and line their own pockets and pretend to give a shit about the 3rd world shithole countries.

LOL nobody believes your shit anymore. Remember when Al Gore said in 2009 that there would be NO POLAR ICE LEFT by 2013? Taken a look at a satellite photo in 2019?

That's just ONE example of literally HUNDREDS of bullshit predictions made over the last 50 years.

Hang it up, morons, you've been BTFO'd by your own fantastical failed predictions.

How about we focus on industrial pollution and sustainable organic agriculture, which are real, relevant and solvable problems as opposed to this man-made climate change hoax. Industrial pollution, including herbicides, pesticides and fungicides causes much more damage to our habitat, and our bodies, and is likely the real reason behind all of the things that get blamed on global warming/climate change.

1) Isn’t it alarmist to talk about the potential extinction of the human species?

A: Isn't it retarded to ask questions that start with "isn't it?"

2) Isn’t it already too late to prevent catastrophe?

A: For your brain, yes.

3) How do I deal with the fact that this is so depressing?

A: See a therapist.

4) Won’t it be impossible to get off fossil fuels? Emissions keep going up, and oil companies are too powerful.

A: Nothing is impossible except your achieving intelligence.

5) But I’m just one person. Do my choices even matter in a world of 7 billion people?

A: No.

6) Why should I deprive myself of meat and air travel? It’s human nature to pursue short-term pleasure.

A: Make your own decisions and stop asking, "Why should I ___?" questions. If you don't want a baby, keep your legs closed.

7) Isn’t it mainly a rich and powerful people’s problem? I’m not rich.

A: Get a government job. Then you'll be rich and you can blame your problems on people with real jobs.

8) What is the one easy thing I can do?

A: Nothing. You can get paid for it if you get a government job.

9) It’s obvious the US needs to pass serious federal climate legislation, but isn’t our political system broken? Leaders have short-term attention spans. And many are beholden to fossil fuel interests.

A: It's obvious the US needs to start enforcing sedition and treason laws, arrest and execute all Socialists and Muslims. This will greatly reduce their carbon emissions, so I'm sure you're all for it.

10) But won’t decarbonization cost too much? Won’t it hurt the global economy?

Yes.

11) Aren’t you making what economists call “zero sum” mistakes (my consumption doesn’t limit yours, we can both gain in “win-win” trade)?

A: "We win, you lose" is the correct model. Bye.

12) Surely the techies will invent something that saves us?

A: Yes. Private sector spaceships are being developed to transport you and all your Communist and Muslim friends off this planet so the rest of us can get back to living our lives without your constant interference.

Dumpster Fire this bitch! If you are stupid enough to accept an attempted emotional refutation by Vox or anyone who reads Vox, you flunked logic and reason, speech and debate. Nevermind Logic and Statistics. These people are programmed. They won't listen to reason. Every day, the weather changes, that does not mean the world is going to end. They lost Global Warming, so now they want tax money and ending civil liberties wether the temps go up or down. Sorry. Not buying it.

Yeah, just ignore the fact that the only "evidence" of this alleged ''man-made climate change" is temperature averages from folks like NASA that do not match up with actual average temperatures recorded since we started doing that, and small samples from a much longer cycle (solar cycles) that has been established as the main cause of climate change for longer than any of us have been alive.

Just pay your carbon tax and stop questioning authorities. Give up all the modern technologies and conveniences, and live like cavemen again - it's for the planet! ...except it's not going to change a fucking thing.

Prior to this retarded politically driven bullshit it was WELL KNOWN we were entering another ice age, and average temperature recordings show we've been on a what, 15 year cooling trend? There's a reason they changed it from "global warming" to "climate change".

I was going to school the first time they started going on about this crap, I remember very well the deadlines they foolishly gave for our demise or the "tipping point" - and I remember that deadline being moved back further and further - and AGAIN they're telling us, we have 12 years! Heard it all before, multiple times now. They wouldn't get away with this crap if the average Joe had any attention span at all, and wasn't too lazy to look into the "evidence" given to them by alphabet agencies.

Vox, don't even get me started on those dishonest shills. Establishment through and through, bought and paid for by the likes of Soros and Al Gore. This filth makes me sick.

Good luck controlling the sun Vox.
