    A bit of clarification… the Vancouver law only applies to passing a building inspection for new construction. So some people install the cheapest leavers available, and then change them to knobs once the occupancy permit has been issued.

    Or you could move to pretty much any other developed country…
    It is amazing how America is a world leader in so many things, but completely behind the times with others.

    Gore is just one voice among many… I’m not sure why the deniers can’t comprehend that science works differently than fundamentalist religion.
    .
    With Fundamentalist religion, the religious leader speaks, and followers believing that everything coming out of that leader’s mouth is the gospel truth.
    .
    I know it is hard to comprehend, but with science, we don’t idolize people like that. Gore just happens to be the ‘messenger’. He didn’t do the research, he isn’t the scientist. There is nothing special about him other than his determination to get the message out. If he turns starts misinterpreting the science, then he will lose his credibility, but that won’t change the science.
    .
    Furthermore, most of us who are concerned about climate change know for a fact that he has made mistakes, and isn’t always correct. We know this because that is true for everyone. Nobody is perfect.

    97% of scientists agree that global warming is real and man made… but hey, why don’t I agree with some random guy on the internet who claims he is better at math than scientists.

    It doesn’t matter how much Obamacare succeeds, the ‘right’ will call it a complete failure.

    Never have I seen a better example of confirmation bias.

    Yet here you are continuing the debate.
    .
    I can boil it down to something simple.
    .
    Approximately 97% of scientific research supports the theory that humans are causing global warming. It is nigh impossible for some stranger on the internet to convince me that these scientists are all wrong.
    .
    Your epistemological approach to life doesn’t place value in that… as such it is nigh impossible for me to convince you that you are wrong.
    .
    Conclusion: debate is futile

    I’m sorry, you misunderstand my intentions.
    .
    I’m not trying to debate the subject with you or any other individuals who deny human caused global warming. I already know it is impossible to change the views of someone who defines truth on beliefs rather than on facts.
    .
    I’m just providing interesting information for the other forum readers that like to know what is really going on.
    .
    For those who feel frustrated reading comments by deniers: don’t forget that deniers are actually a minority (a very loud minority). 97% of the scientific community says that humans are a major factor in the current global warming trend. Also, the majority of people living in every other developed country believe the scientific community.

    Climate change deniers don’t make decisions based on truth. They make decisions based on belief. Bringing facts to the argument will only fall on deaf ears.
    .
    Step outside America and climate change deniers are viewed the same as those who deny the moon landing really happened, or those who insist that the earth is flat.

    Funny thing… this isn’t “Political” it is simply science and fact. There is nothing ‘left’ or ‘right’ about it.

    I find it interesting that America is the only developed country on the planet where there is a public debate about climate change. Every other country accepts it as fact.

    I’m having trouble with the “poor children seeking a better life” argument.
    If you add up all the children on the planet that are malnurished and literally starving, that number would be higher than the entire population of America.
    Every single one of those children would love to come to America for a better life. Should all of them be allowed?
