Global Warming

There's a lot of debate. Is it happening? Are we the cause?

Always the rebel, I like to fuck with partisanship. So I'm going to take this stance:

Who actually gives a fuck?

It's a given that we need to pollute less. Global warming is the LEAST harmful effect of human pollution (assuming it's a factor, I don't care if it is or not) so this argument is purely academic. There's no arguing we're the cause of the jet fuel in the tap water.

If the pollution is eliminated, then it can no longer be argued that humans are a factor in whatever happens, and the result will be the natural cycles of the earth, which haven't ended life as we know it yet, so we'll be fine.

If we don't get our act together, we're the ones who suffer. Life on earth will go on, and in fact will be improved because mass extinctions are evolutionary gold. The best species survive, so when a lot of them die, the net value of the survivors is greater.

We might go extinct, but no one else will notice. I'm okay with that.
