Trying to be succinct, climate change is inevitable. Whether man made or a natural occurrence, change will happen and climate change will not cause human extinction. Around the globe, people are living in extreme climates today. The environment resulting from change may be different than the temperate zone we now enjoy, however, my faith is in the human ability to adapt and survive. Yes, we ought to be responsible stewards, but is that enough? Do we deny the impact of the Earth's natural change cycles? Do we suggest that those living prior to past climate changes acted irresponsibly and caused change to happen? I think the concern of most people when it come to the climate is their concern for the preservation of the life style they currently enjoy in a temperate climate. I would like to know the current thoughts on this subject from someone living in an intemperate zone. Do they even care? Changing technology and lifestyle make today's interface with the environment different than that of our forebearers. How much different? Is it really significant? I don't know. I am concerned though with the Jeremiah types who say we are past the "tipping point" and are heading for disaster. My brain just turns off when the Jeremiah type speaks. With the exception of a nuclear disaster, I think humans will be around in the prevailing climate 'til the end of time (whenever that is).
