Climate Change is Real and Dangerous

The verdict among real scientists who publish in peer reviewed publications and verified by the below references is clear.

-It has not been this warm for at least 120,000 to as many as 50 million years.

-There has not been this much carbon dioxide for 15 million years.

-Global warming  is mostly caused by humans.

-Fossil fuel subsidies from all countries are about 5 trillion dollars a year, many times that for clean energy subsidies.

Fossil fuel industries in response have expanded a huge amount of money specifically aimed to spread the falsehoods that:

       -There is no global warming.

       -Global warming  is a conspiracy among scientists to make money, as opposed to fossil fuel companies and politicians who are acting nobly.

       -If there is global warming it is not caused by humans, but rather cyclical by nature.

       -Even if  global warming is caused by humans, it is too late to do anything about it and any change will cause massive loss of jobs and be too expensive.

Climate Change and  results already being felt are not a matter for controversy among the overwhelming majority of published credentialed scientists in the field. The danger is if we reach certain tipping points then we will not be able to recover. This will be disastrous for future generations. Climate Change is a matter of weather and physics. Politicians, rich people, the failure of  people to believe, or government  charades pretending to do something will have no effect. If we fail then future generations will likely judge us by this issue more than any other.

There is a constant ever increasing amount of evidence for human caused global warming as evidenced by the below listed references.  The reason we have so many references below covering many years is to show this is a settled matter. The New Progressive Alliance will continue to document.

Many religious and spiritual leaders are sounding the alarm. For example see the Encylical Letter by the Pope. 

Unfortunately, there is also a well financed effort by the fossil fuel industry to use journalists and politicians to spread and make up new lies even if the lies have been disproved. This effort includes intimidating legitimate scientists. A good description of this is in Dr. Mann's  book "The New Climate War."  Dr. Michael Mann is a long time fighter for the environment and keeps track of the latest trends, fights back,  and provides continuously updated resources.
