I missed the part where anyone demonstrated that 'climate action' worked. When 'climate scientists' ( those promoting modeling as prophecy ) are the only opinions worth listening to and dissent is automatically discounted as being politically motivated, then what is going on resembles 'science' not in the least. Activism and a din of promotion deafen people to one truth : climate 'science' is without results.
Nor is concern over energy consumption a good excuse to tax air.

Well, John F., it does not seem that "climate action" has had an opportunity to really be put into practice, as all the industrial deniers, and their lackeys in congress, have been fighting like crazy to confuse and coerce the issues in their preferred direction. Is it a coincidence that both senators from oil rich Oklahoma are rabid deniers?!
In the last generation, the same kind of people "KNEW" that the acid rain issue was "junk science," until lakes started to die.
For numerous reasons, as spelled out in the article, we need to be pro-active, rather than held hostage by the corporate (read "My bonus, my bonus!") interests.

John F, I do hope you are in your early twenties so that you can live many, many years with the results of the "business as usual," which, as Mitchell D. pointed out, continues to be practiced. Enjoy!

Noted. Thanks for the info, Carrie.
From the article: "It is unfortunately not to seek scientific facts..." "14 climate science deniers" serve on this committee. These are the same people who brought us "you can't get pregnant from being raped" and other such nonsense like their belief (not based on science) that Earth is only a few thousand years old. They also prefer "creationism" over evolution. I hope this is broadcast on C-SPAN so I can get some laughs out of the committee members looking like fools when their questions are answered by science.

There is no excuse for being so ignorant that you dispute climate change, and make no mistake, it is utter ignorance. Even the antis in the Congress know it, but get so much funding from the dirty energy people that they sold their souls.

The nice thing is that when you die you will never have to associate with the evildoers who have destroyed the planet. They'll be choking on the coal they're shoveling for Satan.
