World leaders agreed six years ago in Paris to work to keep global temperatures from increasing more than 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit), and ideally no more than 1.5 degrees C (2.7 F) by the end of the century.

You can't fight Mother Nature. Any scientist will tell you that.

Just put funding front of any scientist and they will lie through their teeth. E.G. Demonising cannabis by providing false evidence on the effects of cannabis. Promoting Nuclear power and not stating the dangers associated with Nuclear plants. Promoting E-transport when 95% of countries draw most of their energy by running fossil fuel electrical supplies to charge all these E - Transport batteries. And not stating the pollution involved in producing batteries. Ever wonder why all the world batteries are made in India, Never trust scientists with models and theories. I need facts not theories derived from their false modelling to gain their next funding. Yes there is climate change but there always had been climate change and always will be climate change with or without humans involvement. Have any scientist told us this fact. No because they loss funding!!!

All the worlds batteries are not made in India.

How many mathematical models have you constructed in your life to know this? I ask this because my work revolves around making high fidelity models of real life and if my models do not accurately predict the real world I don't have a job. And obtw, my peers pick through these very same models and pick them apart for mistakes. No way to lie my way out of anything. If the math doesn't work it doesn't work.

Yes there is climate change but there always had been climate change and always will be climate change with or without humans involvement.

The sudden rapid increase in global average temperatures since about 1880 is unprecedented in the history of the Earth. Scientists, using ice cores from Antarctica, tree rings, rock layers, sea levels as reflected on rock formation and other methods have been able to construct a fairly accurate climate history of Earth over the ages. Yes global temperatures rise and fall over time, but in smooth sine wave fashion. In the last 140 years however the rise in temperature look smore like a vertical line. This is unprecedented. But so too is the change in CO2 in the atmosphere, a record also preserved in ancient ice. Why all the extra CO2? Man made, obviously. It is measurable and not imaginary. Lots of bitter and unhappy people here.
