Oh yeah, I remember that lecture. We learned that even though the dinosaurs were wiped from the face of the earth by a giant climate changing meteor, life went on.

not for the dinosaurs....

Why? Permanent settlements are found in the most arid deserts, located in some of the coldest climates, some of the highest points where the air is very thin, there are whole communities in the Far East that never set foot on land etc etc.

We have survived ice ages, major natural catastrophes, disease, plagues, famines, Kathleen Wynne....

Life as we know it supported on earth is a complex system of which climate is one part. It’s silly to look at this issue in relation to temperature as it affects our comfort level in isolation. The issue is will we prosper not if we can survive a post apocalyptic planet. I’m not 100% bought into climate change as prescribed but I sure can’t get behind an ignorant argument not to worry about it.

If man can’t handle a few average degrees up or down every decade I’d be very surprised. We adapt.

It’s not just us we need.... you know, the web of life. Things are connected. Then there is the economic connections.

I never ever did get my M.Eng degree, but after looking at the new bridge I don't think there is a future in it.

I know, but I'm ok if 10,000 polar bears die and 10,000 more sharks happen.

Oh but I'm sure we can both agree life without dinosaurs is much, much nicer. Jurassic Park proved it.

The biggest issue is likely the political instability it causes. You think the Middle East is unstable now? Just wait until increasing drought causes food shortages (already happening) and they start mass migrations and wars.
Look how much upheaval the few migrants from Syria caused.

Bad dudes who want to kill good people is a far bigger problem in the Middle East than drought.
