How to Respond To A Ridiculous Climate Change Argument

Yes there have been many cycles of global climate fluctuation. That is not what’s happening.

Climate change deniers often say, "The Earth has always been warming and cooling, this isn't any different!" Well, this new era of global temperature rise is different.


The video above will lead you through the last seven cycles of warming and cooling across the planet, and it is indeed natural for Earth to oscillate between ice ages and warmer periods in which plants and animals (human and quadruped alive) thrive. But ever since the Industrial Revolution something extra bad has been going on, and both carbon dioxide and atmospheric temperatures have risen together at historically (and we do mean historically) staggering rate.

You know that part in the disaster movie where the seismograph freaks out right before the the whole world is about to get razed by a catastrophic “act of God” type event? Yeah. It’s a lot like that.

In August, the Recording Academy hired their first female CEO, Deborah Dugan. Ten days before the Grammys, Dugan was placed on administrative leave for misconduct allegations after a female employee said Dugan was "abusive" and created a "toxic and intolerable" work environment. However, Dugan says she was actually removed from her position for complaining to human resources about sexual harassment, pay disparities, and conflicts of interest in the award show's nomination process.

Just five days before the Grammys, Dugan filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and her claims are many. Dugan says she was paid less than former CEO Neil Portnow. In 2018, Portnow received criticism for saying women need to "step up" when only two female acts won Grammys. Portnow decided to not renew his contract shortly after. Dugan says she was also asked to hire Portnow as a consultant for $750,000 a year, which she refused to do.
