Doesn't really matter anyway, because we'll all be dead from viruses, war, or lack of natural resources long before anything major happens.

It's kind of hard to believe something when the leader says "sea levels are going to rise" then buys a 9 million dollar beach front mansion. Says you need to emit less CO2 when he takes a privet jet to go play golf.
Or when the UN gives the maltives millions of dollars to relocate their islands population because of global warming and they take the money and build multiple multimillion dollar resorts, on the beach of their island that's supposedly going to be under water in a few years.

Years are not the problem. The next century will be the problem. And it takes 100 years to put in the changes to fix it.

You have to know the right Joneses!

From the link I shared before about Scott Adams:
Quote:
In a May 14 “Dilbert” strip mocking both climate and economic models, Adams unwittingly made the climate scientist look like Michael Mann, the Penn State climatologist and creator of the infamous “hockeystick” model to prove global warming. Adams told me he had never heard of or seen Mann before he drew the comic, a comment sure to offend Mann’s delicate ego. Mann is suing National Review for libel and recently compared himself to a Holocaust victim.

Our house and cars are paid off, installed high efficiency heat pumps. I want to install solar panels but the local power company is kind of anti solar plus I would end up likely paying them more money per month to have solar, the roof pitch and direction is all wrong and I have trees that I can't cut down that would block sun light.

All future building code should dictate that the major roof pitch will be aligned to the solar panel ideal for any given location and buildings should be well above seal level and resilient ie reconstruction in New Orleans, Long Island, ect.

What is the point of this? I think it's a honeypot for the gullible, but to what end?

sendler alternatively, you could mandate hemispherical living spaces painted with a material that turns sunlight and the humidity in air into hydrogen gas.

I watched 3 episodes of Bill Nye Saves the World last night, and found it lacking substance and humor. Bill introduced the show as for adults instead of children, but the children's show had way more science and detail.
