Earth Doesn't Have Long to Live...

Earth doesn't have long to live

So, global warming is an obvious thing and it doesn't seem to be getting fixed either, we have messed up earth so bad that we are undoubtedly going to either destroy all living beings on earth or destroy it all together.

Oil slicks are a problem as well -_-

Earth Doesn't Have Long to Live...

Nuclear gases being emitted into the atmosphere can't be considered a good thing and I wouldn't trust this either, why we do this stuff I have no clue, we even have banned weapons that WE CREATED! TAKE A LOOK AT THE IMAGE BELOW.

Earth Doesn't Have Long to Live...

Chemical warfare is Banned along with specified weapons that would cause "UNECESSARY SUFFERING" YOUR GOING TO KILL THEM EITHER WAY, WHY ARE YOU MAKING THIS STUFF???

So these should all be obvious signs that humans are on a terrible direction and we even are still trying to make even stronger and more destructive weapons -_-

  • Though I agree with all you’ve said, see these as severe issues we must solve and am stressed about our earth as well, I think it’ll manage.

    Earth has survived ice ages, terrible heats, its tectonic plates are always moving... it can survive. We just have to help it by battling climate change.

    We were on a pretty good start until trump came along. I’m pretty surprised no one’s shot the guy yet tbh.

    • I get your point about Earth always survive but back in the days we did not have nuclear weapons.

    • @zaipei Exactly...

    • @zaipei i know, and I definitely don’t think we can or should continue living this way. But I do think earth can bounce back.

  • No one who has predicted the apocalypse has ever been right. Ever.
    Our climate has been much warmer in the past; Vostok ice core data shows that pretty clearly. We certainly have problems to be addressed, but it's not the end of the world. Literally..

      We have little time to live and therefore we shouldn't be holding back from all the things we said we would do and ended up not doing, just do them.

    • Yeah why not

      There's literally motivation in me to live. So.

  • Nuclear gasses? Clearly not educated. I work in the nuclear field and those so called nuclear gasses don't exist and if they did it would be heavily filtered. But what you see in that picture is the cooling towers. The hot steam runs through a condenser with cold water being poorer on it and it turns to steam as it evaporates.

    • Okay, sorry, I wasn't taught this in school or college so thank you

      *Honestly, not trying to be sarcastic I am actually grateful :)

  • Our atmosphere contained 5x the carbon dioxide it does now in the past, multiple times. Currently our planet is greener then it has ever been in the past 300 years, polar bears are actually flourishing as warmer weather means more food, in fact they think one of the reasons why the warmest places on earth have the most diversity is because it allows for rapid evolution.

    Nuclear plants don't release any pollutants except for thermal, i. e. hot water which can be an issue IF it is dumped out into a smaller water supply, otherwise its harmless. As for the spent nuclear waste, well uranium occurs naturally as do many other radioactive materials (in fact uranium deposits are responsible for the lava expulsions that created the hawaiian islands (called a "hot spot" island formation), unlike nature however after the uranium is spent from the reactors it gets encased in materials that prevent it from leaking out and is rated as being safer and cleaner then most other form of energy (especially better then solar and wind which in the case of solar requires substantially more materials and thus more mining for them, they are processed and require acid washes so more chemical pollutants, they actually can kill birds flying over them (they burst into flames, like an ant under a magnifying glass), they become increasingly less effective each year thus requiring replacement far more frequently (and thus increased chemical pollutants and mining for the special materials), and are less efficient to the point where they are not a feesible power source (as Germany has learned who now has to buy energy from france (which uses nuclear power). As for war, we are actually at our most peaceful right now. Hunter gatherer tribes actually have a, depending on which tribe, rate of being killed by another human at anywhere between 70% to 90% chance, this is while factoring in starvation, disease and accidents. Currently in the US for instance your twice as likely to be struck by lightning then you are to be shot which is incredibly rare, wars of conquest are also rare since we have become technologically advanced enough to be able to exploit resources more affectively and use what we have instead of having to constantly take over other territories to get what we want (as well as the advent of capitalism and trade which also helps). So no, earth is doing great, we are doing great. Their are definitely areas of improvement to be sure, but over all we are doing quite well.

  • Disclaimer: I am no expert, I am just interested in the topic. Sorry for any grammar mistakes.

    Global warming IS a concern in the world. Currently, many scientifically advanced countries are attempting to find better ways to produce electricity without harming the environment. Although many alternatives are better for the environment, each has their own drawback.
    Ex: If we wanted to meet our power demands with solar panels, we would have to cover an immense area with them. This would lead to habitats that animals live in to be destroyed.
    Another important thing is that we need to mine for the resources that we use to make these alternative energy sources. So, while the result is cleaner energy, there is still a large amount of input for new alternative sources.
    About nuclear energy, it is currently going down in viability (as far as I know) because it produces a lot of radioactive waste.
    It is 100% true that the world is in need of a new energy source that is not disruptive to the ecosystems around it, and it should be able to provide all of our needs. In order to accomplish this, more political figures need to push the issue in the light of change.

    As for weapons, they are a necessary evil (and can somethings lead to new technologies) because you cannot change the world, or anything for that matter, if you are under the rule of another country that does not share your views.
    Ex: Country A wants to repair climate change, but Country B does not like Country A. Country B also has a stronger military than Country A. So, Country B takes over Country A and now Country A cannot fix climate change.
    Ironically enough, weapons are needed to keep peace, "Si vis pacem, para bellum," that translates to, "If you want peace, prepare for war." Almost no country would be dumb enough to attack a much stronger power than itself. If there was one country that held an extremely powerful military, it could use that military to oversee everything and make sure everybody is playing nice.
    Cruel weapons, similar to torture, were designed to strike pain and fear into the enemy.

    TL;DR: Alternative energy can still damages the environment in some ways. Environmental issues need more representations from politicians. Weapons are used for intimidation, gaining riches, and keeping peace.

  • Can't we just build a wall around global warming? Or around the earth to protect it?

    I think that the earth will survive longer than we will (humans). Our species has undoubtedly contributed to its deterioration. And we are terrible at doing anything to rectify this or prevent further damage. Perhaps that is because our brains are wired to work on a short-term reward cycle, rather than feeling motivated to do something that will benefit us in 100 years for example. If it starts to go south, and I mean people in developed countries are losing homes and/or lives then we'll be motivated. Survival instincts will kick in and we'll shoot some ice warheads at the earth or whatever is needed to get us back on track.

    Recently, the guy behind The Venus Project died. He seemed so lovable and his project was so well-meaning. Of course we weren't going to implement it, it just had no short-term benefit to those with the power to construct it. However, I wish we did live in such a utopia and the number of ideas put into something such as that with very little support (relative to the global population) shows that we can innovate to rectify a lot of the issues if necessary.

    • @Paul09 My statement wasn't directed twords the asker. It was a set of questions for all of us to ask ourselves. So us as individuals can start at home and then take it further.

      You see now, how I meant it?

  • Some time ago, crocodiles used to bask in the sun at places we get polar bears now, because of naturally occuring greenhouse gases.

    Earth does a far better job at fucking itself up than we do.
    If we won't kill ourselves with manmade global warming, then the next glacial period will surely decimate us in a couple thousand years anyway.

    Earth doesn't care, and unless you plan to live for thousands of years, there is nothing to worry.

    • See, global warming people then say that melting ice chills warm sea currents. However the experts believe that if there is enough global warming and greenhouse effect to do that, it will nullify the water chilling a little and have very little impact, if any.

  • Earth itself isn't in danger. The earth will survive. It's the lifeforms that won't.
    But it's not just warming, some places are cooling, and in the northern latitudes warming is actually a good thing, for the people are least. So it's not like the entire earth will become an uninhabitable wasteland.
    Everything north of Portland, OR will have the perfect climate to sustain life.

    Lastly, we're not the sole cause of climate change, but we are certainly contribute and speeding up the process. But the reality, climate will change no matter what, like it did before there were any humans or factories. We can't stop it. We can only lessen our own contributions, and ADAPT.

    • So, everyone from Mexico and Florida should move to Canada? How do you think that will be peacefully organised?

      Did you know that Minnesota (iirc) has a problem with underground pipes freezing up because of globl warming? There used to be a think layer of snow by the time the temperatures dropped which insulated the ground and kept it warm, without it, the ground froze to a much deeper depth than before.

    • @goaded I would argue that it wasn't a factor, but it was just one of many. And other countries weren't experiencing drought and had the same kinds of uprisings.

    • Like Egypt?

      "A number of research efforts in recent years have suggested that warmer temperatures and drought increase the risk of violent conflict around the world. A 2009 study found that over the past 30 years in sub-Saharan Africa, temperature rise correlated with an increase in the likelihood of civil war. A 2011 study implicated climate change in pushing up food prices in Egypt, fueling revolution there."

      "The U. S. Defense Department [was] taking the warning seriously. It issued a report last November [2014] declaring climate change a "threat multiplier” that will impact national security."

      Apart from Helium (which is literally lost to Earth with every pretty party balloon sold), most of the resources stay on Earth and just require energy and enthusiasm to recover.
