Nothing to fear if no one will be left.

Um, no...

I meant will the planet as it is today be the same 50 years from now if we do nothing?

I noticed you didn't answer the third question. Like a true conservative.

The reaction to global warming or climate change has to be the number one thing that irks me about Republicans.

If it were a Republican ideal, this would be the number one issue rammed down Democrats' throats.
Those dirty liberals don't care about cleaning the earth that God GAVE to us! All they care about is their smart phones and lattes made with ENDANGERED coffee beans. And to top it all off they are chopping down the forests that I hunt in! Where am I going to hunt now? The minimall??

What's interesting is that the environmental movement can be traced back to the conservation movement which has always been tied in with responsible hunting. So it was the Ted Nugents of the world that were some of the most outspoken environmentalist of their time. Given those roots you would think many conservatives would be on board... unfortunately it became a political issue and now a lot of hunting has lost it's ties to conservationism.

That's why it suprises me when someone like Iron Horse is the most outspoken anti-environmentalist, he lives off the land as much as he can and it seems like he understands the principles of conservation but chooses to deny we need to practice it on a global level...

On top of that is the willful ignorance of certain religious folks, I've actually had people tell me that they can't get behind "environmentalist movements" because they haven't found anything in the Bible that says anything about it... Do you honestly believe that God made the human body so that you had to take care of it otherwise it would fail, but for some reason he made the earth indestructable to human treatment? That just makes no sense to me...

I teach 7th grade language arts in a middle school. I have running joke I use if a student needs more paper. No worries I say, I can cut a tree down and make more paper. I'm always amazed at some student's reaction. It's like they think the world is will end.

Shorter exams ---> less paper ---> less trees being killed!

But for many Republicans, defending God is not the end, it's the means. The end is really stagnation: going against change at every step.
