I'm fine with continued studying of the problem... although it looks like some of NASA and NOAA's satellites may not be fully funded to help continued study. Further that becomes an issue when government databases with existing data are being turned off. This is research already paid for by us, the data should still be available to help do further study.
We now have major sections of the government being run by people financially tied to energy companies. CO2 and climate change hits their bottom line directly and we're forced to decide if current and future decisions are for the good of the people or are purely profit driven. While this has always been an issue with lobbyists... now however with the appearance of trying to bury data this doesn't help their cause.
Also I do find it interesting that many people, especially on these forums, will argue the problems of crony capitalism on how big companies with unfair influence is bad. Monopolistic banks, the FED, vaccines, health insurance, etc. But somehow big energy has spun it so climate change is the bad guy and they're the ones being hurt. I'm not sure how that happened.
