Why do you think climate change is a hoax, can you answer these questions?

When was the last time you went skating? When was the last time you went sledding or skating? When was the last time you saw a honeybee on flowers? When was the last time you saw the flowers swarming with butterflies? When was the last time you saw flocks of starlings? A single flock used to take a half an hour to go by now there aren’t any. When was the last time you didn’t care about the air quality outside? Why don’t these changes ring an alarm bell, why would scientists lie? Why would you think they’re wrong when you believe everything else they say? When has every scientist been wrong when they all agree about something? And they DO all agree except for a few crazy people? Is it just about the money it will cost to fix these things? they are going to cause economic disaster beyond any cost. Do you think science will get us out of these problems when they occur? If you believe that why don’t you believe what they’re saying is going to happen? You worry about people immigrating into this country? Wait till you see the people trying to cross borders when the economic disasters from climate change start hitting every country on the planet. What do you think the cost will be when all the animals are gone? What do you think the cost will be when all the insects are gone and everything that depends on insects and animals for their lives die as a result? You depend on science for every aspect of your life yet you choose to not believe science about climate, why?

Update:

The changes I described are in Connecticut. I can read the news though. The fires in California are a recent thing. Re.

 Australia, I’ve read a lot of news about bad changes going on there too. I would 

bet that most of you deniers haven’t been around long enough to experience it. It doesn’t really matter though, human nature will not allow us to fix it if it’s real and none of you have thought about the consequences if it is as real as the science says and we do nothing. One word, disaster. 

Update 2:

I have a glower garden, I see one or two honeybees all summer, very few butterflies too. I lived in the woods and fields

when I was a kid,

I never saw a single tick, now you can’t walk outside without getting diseased deer ticks on you. There’s no autumn foliage color change anymore, we were famous for it. We’re doomed and part of it is because of deniers. Deniers will never allow us to try to fix it until it’s too late. You’ll remember this when it’s too late, but by then it’ll be TOO LATE. 

Update 3:

And for the last time I don’t even know who dirac is and I don’t care, I’m not him. Evidently he believes in climate change, do you think he’s the only one? I don’t read other peoples posts and I don’t care, I’m just trying to change a couple of minds in the hopes that maybe we can avert the coming apocalypse. The Mayan calendar was right, it is the end of an epoch, we’re just not going to go out with a bang, we’re going to go out with a whimper, a flaming hot whimper.

    I haven't "wanted" to go skating in years, so eliminate that question... Our property is loaded with Monarchs and Swallowtails... I see blackbirds by the thousands, so many that we shoot them to eliminate crop damage. My friends have air cannons in their fields that go off automatically every 5 minutes to discourage them from feeding because there are so many of them. The decline in honey bee numbers is more closely related to the use of insecticides (Neonicotinoids) than anything else...I'm not going to go into great detail or try to address all of your assertions, but: "...every scientist..." ? That's kind of a stretch there, isn't it? If the "Man Made Global Warming" people weren't such off the hook nut-bags, maybe they would get a little love from "us normal folks" or 'deniers" as you like to say. When idiots like AOC and her New Green Deal want to outlaw: cars, planes, trains, buses, engines, you know, everything that separates us from stone age man, most people will toss her the finger and walk away. What are you doing for the bees? How many hives do you have? Are you hatching out butterflies? My wife releases around 200 every year. You can stand there and stomp your foot, shake your fist at the sky and "demand" all you want, but people aren't going to go along with you if you're not going above and beyond yourself, nor will they follow you after they catch you in your first lie. People that don't agree with you aren't as dumb as you would like to believe, no matter how badly you wish it were true. Also, nice job on working in your "pro" illegal alien reference. Had you stated "orange man bad" in your rant, you would have hit the trifecta. Die with a whimper, ha. Capitalism and our democracy will die to thunderous applause from the socialist democrats. Be careful what you ask for comrade, and save your buIIshlt for when you're hanging out with other simpletons like yourself.

    Never been skating, not far enough north for  safe ice.

    Sledding - people were sledding here last week. 

    Loads of bees all summer . Just plant the right flowers. Several places nearby sell local honey.

    Some butterflies. Never had that many really.

    See starlings all the time , about 10 at a time in my garden and a massive flock a few times a year. Saw the baby ones ( big as their mothers) , being fed.

    Air quality here is great apart from people who think wood burning stoves are green and just create smoke.

    I’m bit saying there’s no climate change, but the science is not honest. ( And the deniers science is just as bad). Because 99% of the world has no scientific understanding , they think they can get away with sloppy science , that just gives the result you want.

    Hey Pal, I am a cross country skier and this season I had a couple of days skiing at the end of October due to an early snowfall. The regular season started near the end of November and if it is like last season will end around the end of March.

    Now, 10 to 15 years ago the ski and skating season started around the end of December and was over by the end of February. Our golf season has decreased in length by about 2 months in the same time frame. Nature not science is telling us a colder climate is on its way.

    You can stick your science up where the Sun doesn't shine.

    People barely experience a lack of adequate sunshine every year.

    Here in the U.K. we have bees and butterflies on flowers every summer, nothing has changed. Plenty of birds  about and no change  in the murmuration of starlings. 

    Yes there is global warming but life is much the same here. We had snow this week in some areas.
