Thanks for Most Helpful. 👍
I am afraid of that…
I just wish that "believing" in climate change would stop this from happening.
@Amy7777 If we do not take actions and stop what we're doing.. or at least reduce our toxic activities, the world will end sooner than expected
Whats virtue signaling
@Buttonss "Hey, look at me, I believe in climate change, and I even have 15 bumper stickers on my car to prove it. I'm special and you're not."Virtue signalers NEED to be in the spotlight, even though they're not doing a thing to help the cause.
So you're being sarcastic when you say this will make it go away?
@Buttonss Yes, of course. But that's what's happening in the world. A whole lot of virtue signaling, and zero effort to solve anything.

Nobody's "just mindlessly saying" it; the original physical observation of what would happen with more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere was discovered in the 19th century. Since then, there have been surprises in the data, and the models of the climate have become more and more complex, but the same basic idea remains and has been reinforced by observation. Saying otherwise is like saying evolution will be overturned; there's just too much evidence that agrees with it.
Actually china’s pollution has decreased significantly. Thanks to their oligarchy. It’s harder in democracy when half the country thinks it doesn’t exist.
And last year, China accounted for about one-third of global CO2 emissions while the US produced 13%.
True! China is top polluter. I’m just saying they’re able to cut down easier. twitter.com/.../1120715988532629506?s=21
They have no incentive to. They have until 2030 to care, after WW3.
Are we harming life on the Earth? Are we harming civilisation?
Planet is still not dying and never will die unless the sun goes supernova. Also - if people harm civilisation, that's not my problem. Next.
I love snowflake right wingers. “Not my problem” when they get called out.
It's genuinely not my problem and nor is it yours because it is out of our control and don't put me in your bullshit left/right categories that only divides people
There’s also a Texas sized ice cap broken off of Antarctica.
agupubs.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/.../2018GL079223I reiterate... the media did their job.
So you failed geography and environmental science, huh. The Antarctic is quite large, you know? So weather is affected differently at different areas.
Who are "we"? Republicans?
@Dargil Seriously? What kind of idiot says we as Republicans? Because they're the only ones causing damage to the earth?
Name calling, as in "idiot" shuts down the dialog.
What about the earth's movements. The sun's luminosity, plate tectonics, vulcanism? Newsflash. Minnesota will be under a mile or two of ice in 60,000 years. Lets kill the US economy in the meanwhile.
Wait, so what are you advocating? Not saving endangered animals or stopping the crazy wildlife trade?
Stopping the crazy wildlife trade and other stupid shit that leads to pandemics.
Can’t we get the coal miner a better job?
Biden wasn't wrong when he said learn to code. Or to retrain into anything that's relatively easy (even coding doesn't have to be a hard job.)
It’s not if I could learn it. And I only do simple websites. But conservatives don’t want to think too hard.
Regardless, low paying jobs aren't careers. There shouldn't be any guilt associated with ending the industry
Not nearly as rich as the fossil fuel industries knowingly causing it.
@goaded They are selling a product. Al Gore is selling BS.
Are you against him using the free market?
No, just feel bad for people buying what he is selling and sad for the rest of us that will have to deal with the fallout,
Rich people can be right if the facts line up. Climate change doesn’t rise and fall based on his reputation.
Al Gores private jet has a deluxe catalytic converter on it! LOl
@Amy7777 true. And so does the American Airlines flight I took last month. We’re all assholes deep down.
I posted a question that got featured, and it was about this topic. But my question is about why people think that talking about climate change will solve the problem? Biden said that climate change is the most existential threat to humanity. OK, then stop flying around on air force one. Why does the president need to fly anywhere?
@Amy7777 because our economy is helped by flight. And a better economy helps put more money behind alternative energies, etc. Its quite complex you know? You’ll need more than a Vogue quiz…
Ah, OK. That's pretty profound. The best way to fight pollution, is by polluting. Makes sense to me.
@Amy7777 Yeah, actual problems don’t get sorted out by dumb slogans. It requires complex analysis. Shutting down every industry that pollutes would be Walking Dead scenario. So the intelligent amongst us need to think outside the box…
Which issue of Vogue did you read that in?
@Amy7777 do you read vogue? Thought it was just pretty pictures…
I'm wondering if you bothered to read your own title for this question.
@Amy7777 The head of state flying somewhere is one out of 330,000,000 citizens. (When he was in congress, he took the train.) A million people flying for fun is a lot worse for the environment than a few people flying to represent the country. Should Biden take a sailing boat to the G7, like Greta?
@goaded Maybe Trump had the right idea. He got out of that mess, pushed using natural gas and had a million trees planted.
Doesn't Trump own his own 737?
@goaded No, he should stay home, put his mask on, and then check in with them with a Zoom call, just like he did with Russia. I like that he was responsible enough to wear a mask while electronically talking to someone 5,000 miles away. It shows that he actually is smart, and cares about others. The world needs more people like Joe Biden.
@goaded yes and he thinks climate change is a hoax.
How can you tell? He lies like a rug.
@goaded I don;t think he is lying about that.
Well the earth has unleashed Covid and it’s kicking our ass.
I'm also into pain
whip this earth into submission!
Not the best website but it shows how many hurricanes and how bad they were over the last 150 years…Notice the increase?http://www.stormfax.com/huryear.htm
Right, Vishnu is tough on us.
