An Inconvenient Lawsuit: Teenagers Take Global Warming to the Courts
The Atlantic ^ | May 9, 2012 | Katherine Ellison

Alec Loorz turns 18 at the end of this month. While finishing high school and playing Ultimate Frisbee on weekends, he's also suing the federal government in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C.

The Ventura, California, teen and four other juvenile plaintiffs want government officials to do more to prevent the risks of climate change -- the dangerous storms, heat waves, rising sea levels, and food-supply disruptions that scientists warn will threaten their generation absent a major turnabout in global energy policy. Specifically, the students are demanding that the U.S. government start reducing national emissions of carbon dioxide by at least six percent per year beginning in 2013.

Thanks. I appreciate all viewpoints like yours because like I said science can be wrong and my understanding of science can be wrong. I'm not trying to disprove anyone else's ideas as much as giving the best explanation that I can. But there is undoubtedly a huge amount of influence (especially financial) from leftist control freaks like Soros through his funding of climate advocacy groups. That should make anyone suspect of anything I or anyone else says, especially "established science" or "consensus" or similar suggestions when we have documented evidence that the scientific peer review system has been corrupted (climategate).

Hence I should not be given a pass on threads like this if something I said might be wrong in any way.

Truly refreshing, your attitude, I must apologize for mine. This AGW crap hits close to home sometimes.
The lack of solar acknowledgment is absolutely infuriating. Your blind links cannot begin to measure the last four and a half billion years of this massive fusion.
Any two carbonated drinks at different temperatures can clearly show that CO2 is a lagging indicator of heat collection. Not a cause. You can refer me to links until we are both blind, I am saying here look at reality.

This Children's Crusade will probably end as the ones on the Middle ages did, but at least the Federal Government will probably treat them better than the Saracens did
