Keep in mind, who are right wing politicians trying to sell their views to?

Not the scientific community, but the bible belt. The bible belt typically doesn't like the idea of "curtailing their freedoms" because of something they don't understand so their politicians will pander to their ignorance in order to get additional terms in office. It's a pity really...

I'm a conservative. I'm also not religious. I also do not deny we are in a warming. However, i do recognize the fact that the world has been going through warmings and coolings since its birth. The latest warming is simply a pathetic whiny liberal ******** freakout. Quit trying to blame everything you don't agree with conservatives over on the bible. That makes you a generalizing idiot worthy of the WBC.

I'm conservative as well, I just live on the coasts. I'm also a student of the sciences. I've watched my biology, chemistry, physics, and ecology professors all discuss the effects of climate change on the habitats of all life on earth including ourselves. I've seen quantifiable data showing that the rate of extinctions in this time period is quickly climbing to the point of a mass extinction event. We are at the brink of a mass extinction event. Now you're either going to shove your head into the sand and hope you survive, or you're going to take proactive measures to try to slow down the rate at which this event encroaches on us.

Nothing will be gained by heading down our current path, why not make an effort to be conscious of our role in the maintenance of our ecosystem?

It is not a whiny liberal freakout at all. Yes there have been warming and cooling periods through out Earth's history. But the key difference is that this warming is caused by excess greenhouse gases that HUMANS have pumped into the atmosphere. When that's the case what the Earth normally does to regulate temperature by lessening Co2 in the atmosphere doesn't work because Humans keep pumping it in. Of course in the long run the Earth will correct climate change itself, by killing of the humans that are causing the current period of warming.
