You're assuming an unproven condition. It's a little
silly to even debate this I think. (A 'media' and
"pop-creation" by those who want to 'feel-good'. A
veritable movement instigated by the very same
save-the-whale groups that sees some need to assuage
their guilt because they don't have something to center
their lives/give their existance meaning ... I'll

A key-word was used here: 'some'. It means not all and I
even doubt it is a majority of those in actual possession
of the facts.
Taking this line also allows you to *only* site those
sources that support your position. A LOT of factual
material and evidence is ignored this way.

We *just* had a mild winter (this last winter) and one of the
**mildest** (coolest) summers that I recall in twenty-five

You don't take into consideration *other* factors which
you cannot see, for instance, inside-the-earth's-surface
lava flow ... (You *do* know the earth possesses a warm,
nay, hot core - don't you?)

Cap a volcano.
Assure me that no more forests will burn.
Write me a warranty on the sun's energy output.
Give me confidence that we can stop *all* under-sea
oil from seeping into the oceans (thereby ALSO
contribiting to greenhouse gases in our ecosystem
and eventually in our atmosphere).
Look- man's actions are indeed SMALL compared to the
scale NATURE moves in.
We *are* ants ...

Like imposing arbitrary and punishing economic sanctions
against the producers in this world via something as
resticting as "Carbon Credit Trading"?
