Still too much uneducated comment
Very good comment by Raoul Miller above. People who don't understand the science really should read up on it before commenting.
I would point out that Ryan Nix really doesn't understand the science when he claims "Yes, CO2 levels are up 30% in the past 100 years, and things like cars, factories, even farm cows, are a major contributor for this". Ryan, Farm cows do produce CO2, but no-one cares about that. However, they also produce a large amount of methane which is why they are commonly brought up as an issue.
Neither is scientific concensus a bad thing - the person making that comment seems to believe that the more people who believe something, the less likely it is to be true: a very strange viewpoint.
For any climate sceptic: please, go, read, discover, learn. Don't just read the sceptic websites, read the science. Try and learn the valid scientific reasons for uncertainty, and ask yourself whether that uncertainty is worth the gamble. Because that is what it is: a giant gamble.
The basic science of the greenhouse effect is known. Where there is discussion, it is in regard to the magnitude of the change and how this will be altered by feedback effects (again, if you don't understand this term, read up on it, a wuick comment is not enough to explain the science). This is where the confusion arises, but simply ask yourself: what are the options? Here's a range of options
1)We act: the threat was not as bad as is currently feared.
Result - positive, as oil/gas will last longer for both ourselves and our descendants, and humanity as a whole will benefit.
2)We act: the threat was as bad or worse than currently feared
Result - positive. We will still suffer from global warming but we will have mitigated the worst effects.
3)We don't act - the threat was not as bad as is currently feared
Result - negative. Oil/Gas prices are already going up, and we will STILL pay higher costs for energy.
4)We don't act - the threat was as bad or worse than is currently feared.
Result - Disaster.
