Climate change anyone?

examples?

Carbon capture machines, but as you say, very expensive.

 

Biomass converted to biochar/charcoal and incorporated into soils.

 

Seaweed grown in ocean, cut and sunk to sea floor.

 

These are just the ones I've heard about, I haven't researched it further.

The IPCC have actually admitted that their models have been wrong.

 

(going beddie byes now)

This is another Christopher Monckton article.

 

Please look him up everybody.

Essentially.... our beautiful blue oasis in the vastness of our part of the universe is very much like a petri dish  in a lab  with various bacteria in it, to use an analogy  .....sealed and in balance [ or not ] to all intents and purposes, from our very limited point of view.

 

Unfortunately for the whole of this balanced ecosystem some clever folk discovered stuff and stupidly trusted this information to the other anthropoids like the ones that I stand next to in the pub, in order to make money

 

For eons all was in balance.... just like the delicate balance that is on going in each of our super complicated bodies.... What arrogance is displayed when we presume to know anything definitively after the tiny amount of time that we THINK we've found any answers in.

 

On this planet it's only man that shits in his own nest... but it's all the millions of other species that are paying the price of our stupidity as we destroy the environment in our endless pursuit of greed and which may well prove to be the well deserved Achilles heal of the human races 'cancer' of the system.

Our 200000 years is nowt to Gaia. 650MYA ago the whole earth was frozen and then covered in dessert in the Permian with 3x the level of CO2 today.
We are the one that will suffer. Many of our large cities are coastal, there will be water and food shortages.
I suppose at least Skegness will be no more

As others have said, climate change is less about what we'll do to the Earth in the long term (we've a blip on the Earth's timeline, albeit an obnoxious one). It's essentially self-preservation and continuing on the path we're on will mean by 2100 we won't have a great deal to preserve. 

 

I also mourn the loss of biodiversity in our lifetimes. Again, not that the earth won't recover, only that our children and children's children won't see the wealth of natural splendour that we've enjoyed.

Is it false though? You are not reading the message because you don't like the messenger. It's data - the IPCC have backpedelled. It's true, it's there in black and white.
