Not really.  I was not the original poster of the vid.

I just watched it and commented on what it meant to me and how it encapsulated my views on this subject.

I take it that you also do not watch any of the TED presentations.  This is no different from one of those as it is a recording of a live presentation in front of an audience.  Lectures are primitive and overrated I guess as a delivery method for facts and opinions in the 21st Century.  They should be banned at all institutions of higher learning.  

Like I said, the vid parallels my conclusions which I have offered up here over the years in bits and pieces.  

I saw it, liked it and said why.  The vid would serve a purpose for me if anyone asked my take on the subject.  I would tell them to watch it if they wanted to know.  Save me a lot of time and trouble splaining it.

Funny how ain't none of us going to be around to find out who is right and who isn't.  Although those who believe its all manmade are right because they are the only ones with real science on their side.

Actually Kurt, I don't think there are very many people that truly believe that climate change is 100% man made, moreso the industrial revolution and exponential increases in carbon emissions that come with it are excacerbating the natural cycle to the point where we are in serious trouble.  Regardless of what percentage is man made or natural and cyclical, the fact remains that it has been here for many years and is accelerating to the point of no return at an alarming rate and it is downright irresponsible for us not to take this very seriously, buckle down and do something about it on a global scale.  Having said that, this subject is not very pressing to me personally because I know that global cooperation is not forthcoming or possible at this stage of our spiritual evolution nor can we put the modern lifestyle and agricultural mass production systems that have allowed for unsustainable population levels back in the Genie's bottle therefore we are quite doomed............ 

 
I agree.

I do realize that in the general population, the view is not as widely held.  Here it is, or so it seems.  I am only addressing the views expressed here.

What bothers me the most is how we are distorting our entire economy to address this in money losing propositions.  We cannot overcome the foreign outputs of China and India and other nations whose priorities do match ours.  So in essence we are only chasing our tails and bankrupting ourselves financially and even morally in this futile endeavor.  The moral example is that it is now ok to kill eagles and other birds when wind farms are doing the killing.

That's not to say that we do nothing.  Just not what we are doing now.  We should direct our energy towards finding ways to cope and adapt rather than try and reverse it. 

Change is the only constant in life.  All this time, energy and money being spent to try and prevent change (or put the genie back in the bottle) is downright foolish and futile. Politicians and there masters only make money when something goes wrong.  They do not make any money when they fix things.

I don't waste time on these amateur videos for the same reason I don't watch propaganda like An Inconvenient Truth: These sorts of presentations tend to be biased, and painfully short on facts and knowledgeable analysis.

If you wish, you can summarize his findings/assertions, or better yet, submit links to peer reviewed articles that your/Davidson's beliefs are based on.

I know a number of posters here like embedding videos on topics like economics, 9/11, climate change, etc. To me, seeking wisdom in such videos is like looking for diamonds in a box of cereal.

I remember pulling into Indio, California back in 1963 and stopping at a bait shop at 9:00pm to get bait.
My dad, my brother and myself (a fairly young tyke) were going overnight fishing at the Salton Sea.
I was amazed that the temperature was sitting at 104 F.

Now that I live only 4 miles from Indio, I've seen those temps at 11:00 pm at night for the last 44 years.

Again, how do you know it went unnoticed? An assumption based on a lack of replies? An assumption based on experience that in this forum each and every piece of BS gets debunked? (if only)

Based on this forum/site I am now going to fallaciously assume that all people called Kurt don't accept evolution and anthropogenic climate change until an anomaly presents itself. {#Wink}
