I want our representatives to make decisions based on science not "anti science"

Al Gore is not a scientist and you will notice I have never brought up Al Gore in any discussion about climate change.

In fact it's kind of ironic that those who think Climate Change is a hoax are usually the ones to bring up Al Gore. They want to attack the science of climate change by pointing to a NON scientist.

Al Gore flunked out of college?? What college? His BIO says he has a BA from Harvard. "He earned a degree with high honors in government in June 1969 after writing a senior thesis titled “The Impact of Television on the Conduct of the Presidency, 1947-1969.”
Then he enlisted in the army during the Vietnam war. Gore was shipped to Vietnam, arriving in January 1971. He served with the 20th engineer Brigade in Bien Hoa and at the Army Engineer Command in Long Binh.

Why the disrespect for someone who not only served in the military but also as a lawmaker and VP of our country?
Gore says he became interested in the environment while in high school. Apparently, his mother was a big influence. Gore held some of the first congressional hearings on climate change. He presided over 42 countries in a conference to confront the changes on our planet. He has traveled all over the world in recent years speaking and encouraging each and every country to be aware of climate change.
Since Gore has taken on this project, he has become the object of insults, threats, jokes, and contempt. WHY? Has he harmed us in some way by educating us about the only earth we have? This whole issue has become nothing but a partisan football....all because someone cared??
I don't get it.

And who do you see promoting Gore's movie, his claims or his carbon credit scheme.

You love tilting against non-existent windmills, don't you.

If you look at the real graph as posted in the linked Guardian article, you can see it's happening now.

Well, no, probably with your grasp of science and math, you won't be able to.

What is the point of a "public" debate when 90%+ of the public do not have the education or knowledge to adequately debate the topic?

The issue is "settled" not because of politics but because of science....the only possible result of a "public debate" would be to muddy the science with a bunch of NON scientists offering their opinions on a topic that they have no clue about.
Well, there is another result.:

The delaying of any new government policies which would adequately address climate change.

You mean like climate models which have had considerable success in their...ummm...predictions?

Climate scientists have made all kinds of predictions that are turning out to be true:

Thank you President Trump for following through on what people voted you in for.

Because setting up a global taxation system based on carbon dioxide is a very sinister and stupid thing.
