If we knew with certainty that we were entering another ice age, does anyone seriously contend that we could avoid freezing temperatures just by cranking up man-made CO2 emissions?

actually the temperature of the earth is quite sensitive to the parts per million of co2, so yes of course we can alter the earth's temperature by increasing greenhouse gasses.

I actually think given a chance to vote most americans would support a slight amount of greenhouse warming. that's the weird thing that nobody talks about. given that we can influence the earth's temperature, what is so wrong about making it a little bit hotter. On one side you have environmentalists who want to preserve the status quo and on the other side you have republicans who deny the link between co2 and earth temperature entirely. What about people who understand that global warming is real and want it to happen (just not too much)?

"The idea [of human-caused global warming] is preposterous and arrogant. Yet global warming alarmists ask us to accept the inverse theory as proven fact."

Why should we believe your bare, uncorroborated statement against the carefully-researched work of thousands of scientists?

Global warming alarmists supporting a tax on CO2 may not be idiots. The list includes former chairman of the Federal Reserve Alan Greenspan, President George W. Bush's economic advisor and Harvard economist Gerald Mankiw, and Nobel Laureate and economics professor at the University of Chicago Gary Becker.

"If we knew with certainty that we were entering another ice age, does anyone seriously contend that we could avoid freezing temperatures just by cranking up man-made CO2 emissions?"

Depending on the severity and causes of the ice age, maybe.

Why do you hate science?
