Because when you change a system this way, there will be repercussions. The effect of such a change may not be linear at all, but may cause methane to be released from the permafrost, giving a huge boost of the greenhouse effect. I'm really surprised at how sure the scientific minded(?) people on here seem to be that they have a complete understanding of the atmosphere and all related effects, because the scientists are much more cautions, and rightfully so.

This planet has been a waterworld (almost) and a snowball in it's geological history and has had numerous mass extinction events (this era being one of them, but so far not even close to the worst). I think caution should be exercised. So do the scientists. But you guys all know better so, it's full throttle on the Humvees I guess.

Anyway, the climate may be the least of our problems, short term. Water shortages and plastic (and other) pollutions, as well as antiobiotic resistance in common diseases, may get us long before the climate does, but it certainly will accellerate the mass extinction going on. I don't really think that is anything to take lightly.
Well, it kind of makes them "relevant" again. But, again, like your last line, what's the difference. We are not allowed to protect our borders, but we are suppose to save the world?

Nobody is stopping folks from giving up their cars, planes, dishwashers, whatever? Why have they not if they believe it? I mean, what have they done. It's almost like they don't believe it by their inactions in relation to some catastrophic news, no ? If they won't take action based on these so called "experts" what the hell am I going to do ? Kick them all in the arse ?
