Come up with your own idea to address the problem, but saying the problem doesn't exist is harmful.
Two realitites I want to drop on you:
1. The climate has, is and always will be changing.
2. The deficit is caused by spending more money than you have.
#1 we can do some good but little in the overall context
#2 is something we cand have a serious impact on. And yes, it was fabricated for a power grab. It's called politicians buying votes with money they don't have.
