So, not only are CO2 emissions actually contributing to climate change

And yes they really are...
But again, not only are they doing that, they're also increasing the acidity of the seas ... CO2 in aqueous dilution is H2CO3 : carbonic acid, like in your soda. Remember that scare experiment they showed you back in the day, where they left a milk tooth in a glass of soda overnight, and it was just gone the next day?
Turns out, same thing happens to the shells of many food-chain-starters in the seas. Entire food chains of marine life can be devastated.
Historically, when the oceans tank, they tank hard. It is well documented that marine mass extinctions can kill off almost all marine life, and have done so several times in the past.

But you know, if it's happened in the past with no human contribution, obviously we can find lots of reasons not to do anything about it now...

You're right, the whole BASIS of science is proving it wrong

by aidemzo_adanac In reply to Science is never indisput ...

Scientists spend our tax dollars trying to debunk previous conclusions, prove findings inconclusive etc. The whole idea behind science is that we don't know about everything, in fact we often prove things incorrect that were deemed correct many years before, that's just what science is. Scientists love to be proven wrong, then they have more work to do, more grants to spend etc. Then again, that is SO much better than a mindset that simply says "no" (lol, computer says 'no') and doesn't seek a better conclusion. Many people say GW is BS, fair enough, I'm open to that (in fact it would be great if it was BS) but they chalk it up to, the world will do it's thing, it's much bigger than us and we can't control it.

To me, that's as much of a cop out as saying "No, I can' t explain why, but God has his ways" when people counter religion with science.

If scientists said, "religion is a farce, science has it's ways of making things happen, don't pretend to understand it, just believe" Sure, LOL, that'll work!

Which lies?

by AnsuGisalas In reply to No, they're really not

You mean the peer-reviewed research?
Whereas the average lifespan of "research" on your side seems to be three months in public, until it's proven fallacious, and then an eternity in the steaming undergrowth of people who don't grok science.
