Is this analysis of the probable long term effects of climate change logical?

    This sounds interesting.

    I am thrilled republicans propose good ideas. Why wasn't this presented by Democrats?

    Probably, as climate change has historically had negative effects on the earth and its populations. However, these effects are now worse due increasing population, building to close to the Oceans, building high rise structures, and populating areas prone to fire, tornados. Not to mention structures like mobile homes in these areas.

    The irony is that the global warming alarmists are fighting something that is beneficial to the human race.

    Yes, I’ve explained on here a few times how warming and increased CO2 will benefit me and everyone else by extension.

    When my brother was about 3 years old he went through a phase where he was scared of fresh fruit. Like cherries and peaches. He got over it. This bunch I’m afraid won’t. :)

    The Amazon rain forest being lost is the problem. Plant fast growing trees and tall grasses everywhere else.

    They have too much invested in the alarmism meme. Much of that is virtue signally which is obvious from the refusal to understand the natural history of the earth and the economic analyses which include both benefits and costs of global warming.

    Here is a just released University of Chicago economic analysis of wind and solar. The cost per ton of CO2 ranges above $130 and could be as high as $460. That's a huge carbon tax for a "zero" reduction in global temperature. And of course there is no discussion of the economic benefits of global warming.

    No, warming climate has positive effects on the earth and its populatinos, which is why periods of warm global climate were called, "optimums" before that term was ruled politically incorrect.

    What do you personally think of this video?

    I am quite impressed by it and I think it verifies many of the ideas put forward by AboveAlpha that I quote in the opening post.

    No "solutions" are necessary. "Climate Change" (ie, "greenhouse gas models" concerning "increasing surface temperatures") is not happening. "Action" is not necessary.
