"Belief in climate change is optional, participation is not."- Jim Beever.
"Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but not to their own facts."-
Daniel Patrick Moynihan.
G20 nations spend $452 billion a year supporting fossil fuels: study.
Support for fossil fuels was four times higher than for renewable energy.
Exxon and probably other fossil fuel companies have long known that global
warming is real and mostly caused by humans, because their own scientists
did some of the earliest good studies that showed it was true. But they
decided to fund a denial campaign to protect their profits, which has
worked very well.
Climate change could cost trillions more in damage, because of thawing
Arctic permafrost. (a mere $3-166 Trillion, while even without Arctic
warming, climate change is estimated to cost $326 Trillion globally. The
entire world economy is only about $72-85 Trillion a year.)
