What most concerns you about the hows and whys of Climate Change?

How is it that there is such apathy about global warming and resulting climate change? There are still some credible scientists who doubt climate change, but they are far outnumbered. Most respected scientific bodies have stated unequivocally that global warming is occurring and mostly man-made. This conclusion is shared by the national science academies of developed and developing countries, plus many other organizations, including the IPCC, which was established by the United Nations and the World Meteorological Organization to provide the world with "a clear scientific view" on climate change. How much are we willing to bet on the skeptical minority? By the time every doubt is erased it will be too late to take action to control the risks. And is it moral for us to refuse to sacrifice, knowing that our children and grandchildren will suffer the consequences if the overwhelming majority of scientists are proven right?

Introduction

I started Climate Change Toronto to raise awareness about the latest climate change news and data for people who want to discuss the problems and solutions to alleviate climate change. I'm also co-organizer of the North York Physics Group.
