Under the Obama administration, the EPA is moving forward to declare greenhouse gas emissions a danger to public health and welfare

If, for the purposes of discussion, one might suspend disbelief long enough to think human created CO2 sources had a sufficient impact on the global climate to cause global warming (otherwise, the greenhouse effect would not be an issue), just who has provided data that a little warming is a bad thing?

Certainly there is enough sub arctic landmass to, as climate zones shift, replace the current temperate zones in land area and food production. So, aside from flushing out a few nearshore rat warrens, what's the problem?

“If, for the purposes of discussion, one might suspend disbelief long enough to think human created CO2 sources had a sufficient impact on the global climate to cause global warming (otherwise, the greenhouse effect would not be an issue), just who has provided data that a little warming is a bad thing? “

There have been different studies, which the IPCC cherry-picks to assume the worst-case.

“Certainly there is enough sub arctic landmass to, as climate zones shift, replace the current temperate zones in land area and food production. So, aside from flushing out a few nearshore rat warrens, what’s the problem?”
It’s not credible to assume the birds and animals can shift with it, and farmers can be hit. Then again, the whole “change=bad” is an interesting one-sided assumption.

Reality is more balanced.
