I like the end when he points out that people are not willing to change their lifestyles to fix climate change. This is typical of those that scream the loudest about it. They advocate for the government to raise taxes on everyone else, but will not make any sacrifice on their own towards their cause.

The approach by the advocates of Government solutions never change their tunes, even though the understanding of the SCIENCE itself clearly does. They still refer to skeptics of global warming as "deniers of climate change." Only fools and the ignorant would deny climate change occurs, and is now occurring. What skeptics deny is that Truth can be altered by consensus.

Despite the last two years (actually five years) of NASA confirmation that the earth is now beginning a cooling phase they still publish arguments that the Climate change "deniers" are grabbing straws and putting their heads in the sand. As Booker T Washington commented ,,,,"a lie doesn't become truth.... because the majority accepts it."

Consequences? What we are dealing with is the consequences of political stupidity engaged in an unholy alliance with bad science. Made so by well meaning but corruptible Experts. AKA the IPCC which is a pollical pseudo science body that receives it's funding for providing to the United Nations the "science" it wants to hear.

I would just note that it would be hard to come up with five words that make me less likely to watch a video than ďJordan Peterson on Climate Change.Ē

hmmm, Ok.
but this is why folks can't even talk objectively about the issue .
rather than science guiding the ship here people's emotions have already staked a claim and they simply defend it.

It's like your saying,
science, common sense, more research, options political or otherwise for doing or not doing anything, BAH...
I don't want to hear it.

It'd be one thing if you'd already heard or read it but no you've dismissed and refuse to even listen.
not cool.

he's mainly quoting science and history.
As do most "clowns" of the left and right do.
do you give a --- what the clown non-scientist politicians think about it?

Look if you don't like Peterson that's fine.
Doesn't mean what he says about this subject doesn't have merit or some facts that you might want to consider does it?
Or should our emotions trump objectivity about science and policy in cases were personality is an issue?

Credibility matters. Peterson has none.

none with you.
But he's a college professor, and has worked on U.N. reports so objectively speaking he does have some credibility.
