That is a very good practical vision. But they start throwing fake science at you and you get caught up arguing.
Science actually has a very tight grasp on the basics of climate and none of this AGW makes the slightest sense. Of all of the qualified scientist 99.8% do not believe that we are even warming un-naturally let alone being caused by man.
The NASA paper that Obama demanded of them was clearly a totally fake paper. It was generated quite easily - you make totally inappropriate corrections for Urban Heat Island Effect over the most rapid urban growth period in the history of the US. This is almost impossible to correct for in the first place because the placement of the weather stations and the wind speeds can change temperatures dramatically and unpredictably.
Also during this time occurs the recovery from the Little Ice Age and the temperature returning to normal is presented as abnormal heating.
We only have absolutely accurate measurement of the global mean temperature since we launched the US weather satellites in 1979.
However, while Obama's paper to the IPCC proving AGW without a doubt by showing over a 1 degree C. increase in mean global temperature, this was almost entirely between 1979 and the present.
During this same period of time that weather satellite reports of mean global temperature show that it has remained flat or by some interpretations as riding 0.1 degree C. Personally I do not go with even the slight increase though it could be there as the recovery from the little ice age I spoke of previously. My interpretation of the temperature is that it is no more than the normal chaotic temperature variations.
By "chaotic" I mean that we humans do not have the ability to calculate the billions of things that can cause a change that can move into something major. Or as the explanation of chaos theory goes - a butterfly flapping its wings on one side of the world may cause a hurricane on the other side of the world. This is not literally true but a demonstration that the smallest thing can cause a cascade effect that does something that no one could predict. But it may be nothing more than the butterfly flapping its wings as it is a quintillion other times.

The Parrot Killer
Allow me to repeat things I've posted many times before: NASA was commanded by Obama to produce a paper "proving" that climate change was real and endangering the world. They did so simply by using temperature measurements from ground stations without making any attempt to correct for Urban Heat Island Effect - the very large temperature growth caused by urban growth. Asphalt and Concrete absorb a large amount of sunlight and inner city temperatures are far higher than the surrounding rural areas. These urban areas are where the vast majority of weather stations are located and so all you have to do is to use these temperature readings and you get preposterous information.
Looking closely at this chart you will note that there was no apparent heating before 1979 or so. This was when medicine and farming methods combined to give man a longer and more healthy life. This also caused a large population spurt in much of the world. This is because initially people tend to have more children because they are the source of support as people age. But as they have more and cheaper food and live more healthy lives they have a rather marked decrease in the rate of reproduction because of you don't have to support larger families you don't have to work nearly as hard. Calculations show that the "population bomb" which politicians threatened the Earth with will not happen. Presently we have about 7 billion people in the world and it should stabilize around 11 billion. Mother nature isn't all that stupid after all.
The end result of this is that circa mid-1970's the cities started large and rapid growth. Consequently the Urban Heat Island Effect took over control of the weather stations and their information became essentially worthless.
In 1979 NASA launched their Weather Satellite program and this allowed them for the very first time to directly measure Mean Global Temperature. The head of that program was Dr. Roy Spencer and he has been charting that temperature ever since.
As you can see there is no discernable growth in temperatures with only the normal semi-chaotic temperature changes that follow the Milankovitch cycles.
Now you have to be aware that the Little Ice Age which followed the Medieval Warm Period ended about 1850 so there IS a return of the planet to the conditions before that LIA. We can expect some warming but the weather satellite charts make it appear that it has already occurred and that the glacier melting and the slight rises in sea levels are still returning to their pre-LIA levels.
That organizations like the IPCC etc. are trying to make it appear that this will or even CAN go on forever shows what lengths that politicians will go to obtain more power.
