I'm 61 and for as long as "global warming" (now called "climate change") has been a thing, I've been skeptical. I try to live my life using logic and data, so it's hard for me to admit that maybe there is something to this after all. That being said, is it REALLY man-made and can we REALLY do anything, other than adapt, about it short of becoming the Flintstones and ending all advanced economic activity? And I don't hear anything about limiting population growth, which is an important piece of this.

I guess my biggest problem is that this has become yet another tool for the Left to clobber capitalism. Capitalism DOES suck, but it sucks less than all the alternatives and has provided the greatest standard of living for the greatest number of people.

So I dunno. I'm concerned about "climate change", but I'm not willing to get into bed with what the Left wants to do.
