Ahem. Oz has been having record high years - out of 200 or so - for a while now. Glacier melting is extremely well documented. As is Arctic sea ice reduction. There certainly seems to be (no, I haven't *actually* done a statistical analysis on it) plenty of evidence that tropical storms are getting stronger, and even in good old Blighty it would appear that extreme weather events are becoming more common.

One need not. But the discussion about climate change isn't pure science - and on the science front I think the results are pretty clear cut: The climate *is* changing, and it's pretty obvious that human production of CO2 and other greenhouse gases plays a big part.
The other principle that should be considered is risk management. When you become aware of a risk, you should adjust your behaviour according to the consequences - as a bad first approximation: probability * impact.
Given that, are *you* happy that your pension portfolio is going down by 70% due to climate change? Maybe it's a 1 in 10 chance...or 1 in 5... or 1 in 1. Now, I know what you're thinking, punk. You're thinking "What are the odds, really" Now to tell you the truth I forgot myself in all this excitement. But being this is a cataclysmic change in the climate, and if it goes seriously wrong everyone on the planet is fucked, you've gotta ask yourself a question: "Do I feel lucky?" Well, do ya, punk?
Me? I'm bad at predicting probabilities. I like to minimise my maximum regret.

Of course, if I'd read to the end of your comment, I could have saved myself the effort of a reasoned response, since you're clearly immune to logic, sense, reason and evidence. Still, someone else may benefit from my lecture.
