Our atmosphere is the great aerial sea. The carbon in the air causes light waves to turn into heat waves. The heat from the atmosphere takes thirty ears to transfer to the oceans. The temperatures of the oceans are the result of the carbon that was in the atmosphere thirty years ago. We have used more carbon fuels in the last 20 years than we used in the prior 180 years. We will not know or see the result of that carbon until 2040 to 2050. I will most likely be dead by them. It will be my children and my grandchildren that will live with what our society is doing in this decade and beyond. How can anyone say it does not matter?
