Expect mega-droughts to begin in some areas, such as the American Southwest and Great Plains, and possibly across North Africa and into the Middle East. A prolonged drought contributed to the civil war and crisis in Syria, and manmade climate change is implicated in that. Other areas might see intense flooding and massive increases in precipitation. Areas such as New England might see snowfalls such as no modern human has ever seen. The Gulf Stream might shut down, plunging the British Isles and Scandinavia into a Deep Freeze. The Indian Monsoon, which brings life-giving rains to the Indian Sub-Continent, might divert to a different track.

    We do know this: Spaceship Earth is in trouble.

    If Science is bunk...then all science is bunk.

    If you claim some science is good and other science is bad...then what is your criteria in choosing good science over bad?

    Seems to me you are choosing science based on which science you LIKE.
    politics over planet.

    That doesn't strike you as a rather dangerous science experiment?

    But we gotta make that profit for the elite few. Nothing else matters.

    You are looking at the wrong things. Carbon is a very small part of the atmosphere

    Yet you want the profit for the liberal green companies that cost more than they do

    I think the liberals are perverting natural climate change and falsely blaming man for it

    True, but rather irrelevant. CO2.....and CH4 (methane) can still have a very large impact on the Earth's climate, because they are greenhouse gases. I'm not sure you understand the basic idea.

    Look, a compound like phosphine or arsine would have to be present in only parts per BILLION in your immediate vicinity.....and you'd be DEAD.

    So you need to put on your thinking cap here, and do a bit more thinking.
