    It is misidentified. Change is characteristic of climate. So, it can't be a problem. The globe is not warming, either. What is happening is that the gaseous atmosphere, the stuff we breathe that surrounds the globe, is being swamped by too many carbon particles because we are transferring the earth's crust to the ether by combusting it. This regular and routine transport of matter, as compared to the intermittent spewing from volcanoes, is the problem. Dumping waste in the atmosphere, where it is "out of sight, out of mind" is the problem.

    Lots of humans don't like to clean up after themselves. They expect Mother Nature to take care of it. Some even rationalize that "one man's waste is another man's treasure," and the shit they leave behind actually has value.
    What's to be done? Those who know better have to clean up.

    But, first we have to recognize that "not enough money" is a lie.

    We organize governments to provide benefits and prevent abuse.
