    We are not going to reduce the world fossil fuel footprint enough to stop the greenhouse gas damage... as is currently being "scientifically" estimated. We are doomed... or... scientists have it wrong.

    We will argue about this while the world continues to generate massive amounts of CO2... and the preoccupation with greenhouse gases will subside as scientists go through approximately 4 cycles of stating what the cause/effect/consequence is/will be... and each time they reset the forecast... their credibility will drop proportionate to their enthusiasm... and then something else will become sexier for science to focus on. I hope they find something that doesn't indict man. We need to alternate hypothetical catastrophes between man made and natural... to give mankind a break from the huge pile of ____ science stirs up in the world political community when they seek new adventures of cosmic calamity.

    Mother Nature will burp... and science will move on to another fantastic voyage. I think the next calamity of great probability and consequence will be an asteroid field heading our way. And ironically the asteroid belt will pull out some of our atmosphere as it passes.. where science will come back and state that it was a blessing (the non religious variety) that man created so much greenhouse gas. "Despite the asteroid field sucking out much of our upper atmosphere... our petroleum industry had the foresight to generate abundant supplies of additional CO2. We'll all be a little chilly for a couple of decades... but we'll keep pumping CO2 and restore it soon enough that our baby making incubator will keep on making Earth the cozy lovable randomly created debris we've come to appreciate."
    Dead on.

    Less use of plastic, more use of wood, thinner forests, higher levels of carbon dioxide.

    No, actually, you have not provided the consequences. You have stated there are consequences but have not specified what they are.
    With all due respect, most of your post is opinion with very little, if any, hard evidence. One can state their "disbelief" in the science and their reasons for it but the science doesnt require belief. My opinion doesnt carry any weight either. To pontificate is not the same thing as to validate.
    Turb-If less plastic is a consequence, I can think of worse things. BTW there are ways to make plastics without ethylene but, you know, science.

    Oh yeah. We are doomed either way. Hilarious!
