@Herbie: And if the politicians do listen, what exactly are they supposed to do about naturally occurring climate change?

There is enough evidence at this point to show that the current climate change is anything but "natural".

But for some reason a lot of people like to stick their heads in the sand and pretend that the colossal amount of pollutants we are pumping into the atmosphere has no effect at all. After all, even if there was real damage done, it is unlikely to affect any of us during our lifetimes, so why should any of us even bother, right?
