Global Warming and Y2K

Global warming is being marketed today like Y2K was marketed just prior to the twenty-first century. Will it turn out that dire predictions of global warming are going to be as accurate as the Y2K predictions were?

I predict the man-made global warming flap will be as accurate as the glacial ice age that was marketed to the gullible public in the 1970's.

Having lived in Europe when a few years ago 10,000 people died in Paris, France alone from the extreme heat, I have researched this for some time, and therefore let me share some links that should be considered ...

OK. Let's assume you're right. And all this Global Warming talk is to keep scientists employed. Why is it stupid to refocus our efforts to do the same thing we are already doing, but make it better for the earth?

We can still have cars and drive as much as we want, but the cars aren't run on oil. And how can anyone argue that a factory spewing dioxin in any amount is a good thing? Fine, maybe the earth won't blow up, but the stuff we're doing is not good for humans. We should be evolving our technology to help humans, even if you don't believe in Global Warming.

Now, I just got done posting on one of my blogs how whenever I try to engage in a conversation with someone online about serious issues, I always get called names. Please don't tell me to move to Cuba or that I love Stalin or Al Gore. If you disagree with me, fine, tell me. But let's just leave it at that. Thanks.

We can hope it turns out like Y2K did .

Corporations and governments mobilized and spent hundreds of millions of dollars to prevent the problems. When Y2K came and went with a small puff, it wasn't because the problem was faked. It was because we recognized the problem and did something about it.

I don't really see that happening with climate change just yet.
