Climate change anyone?

By having kids you know you could create brain bustling scientologists to evade all the bad happenings in this world! It’s true you know.... I’ve been forcefully told so emoji6.pngemoji39.png

I presume you don't really mean "scientologists".🙂

They put scientologists in labs? Like chimps? Poor things. Testing teeth whitening products I'll bet.

Set of bitches! You knew what i meant

Is the scientific consensus ever wrong? Yes, but extremely rarely, and even less so as time goes on.

It's funny that it's the scientists that are to blame for this mess in the first place - if medical science hadn't increased longevity the effects of the consumer would be so much less

 

The United Nations are tapping all the TEFAL heads to help solve this one -

'A proposal backed by Switzerland and ten other countries would require the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) to prepare a comprehensive assessment of geoengineering, including methods to pull CO2 out of the atmosphere or inject aerosols into the stratosphere to block sunlight. Due by August 2020, the report would examine the underlying science and technology, and how to govern research and wide-scale use.'

Appears to be a very reasonable analysis of this rather cloudy issue.

This lady is from the 'Friends of Science Society' This is a very small group of commentators who receive funding from the fossil fuel industry, primarily oil.

Interesting reading tree-fancier.

 

Last I heard, to reduce atmospheric CO2 enough using the carbon capture machines would cost 3 times the total wealth of the entire planet.

  If the cost has come down radically you can see them being part of a solution.

 

The Sulphur in the atmosphere idea is vastly cheaper, but risky. We would not be reducing atmospheric Co2, just building it up to ever greater levels, so if the Sulphur pumping ever went offline for any reason we would be toast.

 

Will be very interesting to see the UNEP report when it surfaces.
