As a people we tend to reject being blamed for anything.
So it seems that the global warming responsibility attributed to human carbon emissions evokes a total rejection of the concept.
We quote everything from flawed science to biblical teaching to divert responsibility.
Perhaps if we softened the semantics it would be a more acceptable concept and we would start addressing the issue properly.
Let’s stop blaming the problem on carbon emissions and say that, whatever the cause, the problem is real and the physical manifestations are occurring.
Regardless of what or who or how, the sea is rising, the ice caps and glaciers are receding, the weather is chaotic and oceans are becoming acidic and warming. Can we focus on that?
