The climate always changes and always has. Changes occur so slowly that they have to be measured on the scale of decades and centuries.
Are you saying that humans are now so powerful we can do with the weather as we wish? Rain, flooding, storms, wind, tornadoes, hurricanes, Earthquakes have always occurred, they've always caused disasters for humans.
Are you arguing suddenly humans get to adjust the entire planet's atmosphere to our own liking and set it higher or lower as we chose and as we see fit?
God-like are we?22
Yes I am concerned and it is my responsibility, but it's a collective responsibility for everyone and if everyone actually made an effort to look after the planet, we could do great things! Unfortunately people have the attitude that they won't make a difference themselves but the more people who have that mindset, the less likely anything will improve quickly! It doesn't help the US have an idiot for a president who doesn't believe in or understand climate change. It is the people with the most power and money who can do the most, so it's a huge drawback when they're reluctant to do anything.20
I'm not even a little concerned and I don't understand why you seem to think I'd be ashamed of that. Reading the poll options I thought you were a 16-year-old tumblr snowflake, but i guess you're a 46-year-old tumblr snowflake. Unless you lied about your age, that wouldn't surprise me.32
What Girls & Guys Said
I am not surprised that climate change deniers exist in this word.
What I find shocking is that educated people in industrialized countries deny that global warming could be influenced by mankind.
Science has brought you the ability to connect to people on the other side of the world through a wireless device you can hold in your hand. You might be using that device right now. Actually, every manmade object that you see, touch or hear in your daily life has been enhanced in some way by scientific achievements. But when the scientific community says that mankind almost certainly plays a role in global warming, people scoff at the idea and say it can't be credible. This is not wacko fringe science. Some of the best and brightest minds are saying that this is a serious problem. Maybe we should listen.10
I still remember the coming "New Ice Age" that would be caused by sunlight being blocked out, by sulfur dioxides (not just that Acid Rain), more clouds from jet aircraft vapor trails, and industrial man kicking up dust in general. So pardon my skepticism about people with an agenda to take away my money and liberties.34
We are already past the point of no return, it baffles me that people are still trying to debate this when we’ve already had warming and sea level rise. This is very likely to get very bad. I think most Americans don’t realize the Midwest is running out of water.20
The climate has been changing constantly for millions of years. We've had an Ice Age and periods of warming. I agree The climate is changing but that's nothing new. I just think we need to adapt to the changing climate rather than worry that it's a Doomsday scenario.62
It's a major point of focus here in the UK at least, often talk about how much of a concern it is... then again, the commercialisation of 4x4s by pretty much every UK car manufacturer is still legal, and encouraged actually.
Blatant, inexcusable hypocrisy. They are military or farming vehicles. Anyone who drives one for any other purpose cannot talk about a concern for environmentalism without exposing themselves as a narrow minded hypocrite.0
I do acknowledge climate change and its affects on the world.
I do acknowledge that humanity had a strong hand in the acceleration of climate change.
But am I concerned about it? Not really, if we can't survive it, then we don't deserve to survive at all.1
None of the above. No and to some point yes is the answer… of course the 3rd world destruction of the rain forests, industrial pollution and using the oceans as a garbage dumb does not help. But when it comes changing the temperatures, we have had an unusual amount of volcanic activity this past year and each incident puts more pollutants into the air than all human active put together.23
Yeah kinda freaked me out this morning thinking about the harsh weather these past weeks and how literally nothing is being done to fix it.
I’ll give it a few decades left
We as humans are going to fuck up the only life sustaining planet in our galaxy10
I don't believe in climate change. I believe in weather being a little bit colder or warmer than normal... I don't believe it's going to kill everyone in 50 years time, or ever for that fact.12
No as the climate always changes and if we've sped climate change up then the damage is already done.28
The climate is always changing. It has been going on for millions of years now. There is nothing we can do to stop it. The only thing the government will do is drain more cash out of the taxpayers pockets.11
I'm really concerned, the weather changes have been dramatic and not only with just severe cold and warmth, there's been more hurricanes and I'm sure tsunamis and going to start happening more too0
Yes I am by the recent natural events proving to be very alarming. Like a real movie is playing wickedly.10
The weather's too hot - climate change.
The weather's too cold - climate change.
The weather is stable - your a racist.40
I'm unconcerned since I'm single, no children, and I'll be long dead before I would feel its effects.0
"climate change is a hoax perpetrated by the Chinese."
When the Chinese do a hoax.. they certainly pull out all the stops2
I do, we don't need to panic but we need to work on seriously reducing our CO2 emissions.
In Europe action plans are starting to really take shape.0
If there is climate change there is nothing humans can do about it20
Climate change is a good thing.
The only bad thing about it is all the dumb ass "green" people who want to tax the world into oblivion.12
Yes I am, but many people are pretty stupid and refuse to do anything good for the planet if it happens to inconvenience them in the slightest. It's pathetic, but that's how people are.10

Climate Change is natural, and to think we can do anything to stop it is absurd. The planet goes through cycles of heating and cooling, and it doesn't give a shit whether we like it or not.
Why worry about it? Why stress about something you can't control. The entire Western World could up and disappear tomorrow and it would have no impact, because it's not the West taking a giant shit on nature, it's the developing world, and they have no intention of stopping. So, let's assume we're all fucked. Why put a cap on our own economic progress, and standard of living, when it makes no difference?
The cult of Global Warming is nothing more than another religion focused around the end times.
