What are the positions on Global Warming?

Global warning has been a major concern for climate scientists for a few decades now. However, polling shows public discourse remains divided as to how real it is, what causes it and how to react to it.

Scientific consensus on climate change fans

Those willing to follow the evidence in climate science wherever it leads. Namely, that global warming is real, human-caused and disrupting. That said, there's nothing inherently wrong with all technology and modern life.

Climate Change can be fixed by a Carbon Tax and the Free Market

Regulate industry, impose a carbon tax, then let the free market take flight from there. It will eventually take us to desirable CO2 levels.

Climate Change Deniers

Those who think concerns are overplayed and probably motivated by a left-wing agenda. Also those who think the Earth's climate system isn't changing at all (it might even be cooling down). Weather has always been messy and unpredictable anyway.

Climate Change is real but simply natural and cyclical.

Global warming might be real, but there's little we can do to counteract it because it's the product of natural causes.

The benefits of fossil fuels offset their negative impact on the climate

Human progress goes hand in hand with increases in energy consumption; this can be seen in areas such as sanitation. Therefore the net benefit of using hydrocarbons is positive.

Climate Change is a leftwing government hoax

Scientists are being supported by the government to fake their data to show global warming. Climate change is not real, but merely a government hoax.

Radical environmentalists

Enthusiastic Mother Earth defenders. Preservation of nature borders on the sacred, and man has come to corrupt a transcendental balance with all his machinery and greed.

Climate Change is so dangerous as to justify violence and sabotage to fight it

Global warming is a threat so big that violent acts and sabotage are necessary to stop it.

All life deserves equal consideration in the fight against climate change

Humans are but one component in a living environmental system. We must restructure our values and lives to consider the preservation of all living beings.
