Sounds like TV entertainment to me and not a serious debate. The climate is changing but giving money to Goldman to trade carbon credits or in the form of a tax to some government to redistribute wealth without addressing the underlying issues that the population has doubled and are using up our water and are living in areas where even normal weather will affect us more dramatically negatively only makes sense if you are looking to profit from a bogey man.
However, I am still wondering what medieval human caused activity produced the warming that allowed the Vikings to settle Greenland.....but they must have solved the problem as the glaciers came back and drove them out.
As a reformed geologist I am more worried about the coming ice age as we have reached or 10,000 cycle - maybe climate change is just the precursor...
