1 The lack of humility before nature being displayed by the right-wing staggers me.

2 What? I don't even understand what you're saying. The fact that I am completely humbled by nature is one of the reasons I don't put much faith in the global warming hype: "nature", as you say, has been around far longer than humans and will continue to be around until long after we can no longer live on this planet. If the planet is warming, *she* will survive; it's we who will not. I've written on this before: Intoxicating Vanity. I have the utmost humility when it comes to our planet.

3 Humans are no longer a part of nature. By right-wing/religious standards, we were given (by God or by or our own evolved"consciousness") "dominion" over the earth. It is now in our responsibility to save it or to continue destroying it. The rock we call 'earth' will certainly survive whatever befalls it because of us. But that's not to say the world we'll leave won't be uninhabitable. Look at all the species that have gone extinct in the last two thousand years and think about it. It the time of Jesus there were 200 million humans on the entire globe, none of them industrialized. Now we have 9 billion industrialized humans creating CO2 emissions daily. The left-wing just wants to make things cleaner and more efficient so that our children have more than a barren rock to inhabit. Why, exactly, is this counter to right-wing ideals?

4 Will, You are a crackpot. You have the mistaken belief, almost a religious one, that the global climate that has existed for the past 100 years is normal. The pure fact of the matter is that there is NO normal climate for the earth. It has varied on its own account for hundreds of millions of years, and has done so without any input from any biological lifeform. It will continue to vary on its own with no input from any biological life form regardless if humans all die off tomorrow. Global climate change is happening all the time, it will always happen, and nothing we can do can stop it from happening. The only thing we can do is adapt to the conditions that we have been given. This is what humans have done for their entire existence, and how we came about in the first place. Your use of right-wing religious standards as an argument is a strawman that has no bearing on anything that Sarah has ever said, lose the tactic, it only makes you look ignorant.
