  • Some might counter argue against global warming by saying "science has proven that climate change is natural...". This is what I say... "yes, there are also natural changes" and I would say "association fallacy", and also "yes, there is proven natural AND human caused global warming. Natural, because of many various astronomical conditions and AGW because we've converted HUNDREDS OF CUBIC MILES of hydrocarbons into extra CO2. And yes, folks, that PART of the science IS SETTLED! Do you dare to disagree? Then you must also disagree with the physics behind what stars are made out of, how lasers work. In Short, you must single handedly prove that ALL science is wrong, that the devise you're using to "deny" with is but a figment of the imagination, the world is flat and all the modern conveniences brought to YOU are not really happening. Science is objective (and only quantum physics and whatever happens inside of black holes are subjective). What's the difference? the science behind what stars are made out and how CO2 molecules re-emit infrared photons to keep the Earth from freezing over, is about as direct as 2+2, whereas, the science of what happens in a BH is just not understood, yet" The science of climate change is as uncertain as climate change itself. However, physics prove that CO2 is an infrared absorber. Therefore, the science behind global warming (which is defined as "extra radiative forcing") IS settled. Why? Because humanity has converted hundreds of cubic miles of hydrocarbons into extra CO2. It should also be "settled science" that the ONLY solution is the _INDUSTRIALIZATION_ of clean energy automation (not socialism)... We need about 250,000 sq mi of solar (complete with such recycling abilities) to power just today's world (accounting for the need to make up for low capacity factor and batteries). Or, we'd need like 100x current wind capacity (and the lots of batteries), or, simply 20,000 molten salt fast reactors (do we dare?). Without ALL these options, we will be TRICKED into economic ruin into an overheated biosphere - anyways. The science behind global warming (not climate change) is simple and direct, WHY is it that people still deny? It's because it's a VALID political issue. GW is being used as an EXCUSE for a leftist agenda! If only INDUSTRIALIZATION of clean energy automation was touted as the solution, We'd all agree and we'd have even more energy than what fossil fuels could ever provide! Indeed!

  • If cows could be raised inside for at least part of the time, the methane released could be collected by the ventilation system of the shelter they are in. That might simultaneously reduce the methane in the atmosphere and provide us with a renewable fuel source (methane). Burning the methane as fuel would still release carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, but the amount of warming due to greenhouse emissions would still decrease. Such an arrangement could also be financially beneficial to cattle farmers, who could use that methane as a fuel to power their farm. Additionally, if other generators and/or vehicles ran on methane, cattle farmers could sell that fuel, which they could continue to produce by farming cattle in such a way that they can collect the methane

    • It will probably meltdown when the next Carrington event happens. Therefore, we might want to build up just 20,000 Molten Salt Fast Reactors, globally, to power everything. They can't meltdown, use much less fuel, require much less resources to build (than solar, wind and batteries) and would be cheaper than the existing NPP reactors to build.

Seeing a cliffedge ahead and just ignore it's existence and the danger we are in until we are already falling and spending our last moments before we hit the ground debating who is at fault is the most human like thing I can imagine.

  • 2040 now. Well as we approach 2040 yall will push it back some more. Whats next 2050, 2100? Lol AGW is propaganda. They had to switch from Global Warming to Climate Change because the climate is always changing and they can point to every change and blame climate change. It has NEVER been static. There is no evidence that co2 is leading tempature. Between the Modern Maximum and Medieval Maximum there were four grand solar minima. The Wolf, Sporer, Maunder and Dalton Minimum. The Dalton ended around 1820. The graph used to show "unprecedented" global warming starts in 1880 to present. The Modern Maximum started around 1914 and may have ended around 2007. It double peaked. Once arpund 1950 and again around the 1990s. All the warming yall are so worked up about is well within natural variability. The Modern Maximum may be over or it could surprise us and continue on for a few more years or even a few decades. There is no way to predict what it will do with any real accuracy. But keep living in your psuedoscience world with no evidence co2 is leading temapture changes now. I guess adjusting and "correcting" data sets to fit your theory instead of adjusting the theory to fit the unaltered data counts as evidence in psuedoscience world. Have fun with that.

  • There's a bill for example the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act that gives tax revenues back to the people. The carbon tax or cap and trade sets has goal of the negative externalities of emissions, not merely for generating revenue. In economic terms, it puts output at the equilibrium. Why do people seem to oppose? Lack of information?

  • Unfortunately, if the US government collects a tax on carbon, there is little to no chance the proceeds will find its way to investment in clean technology. They will spend it on kickbacks to the same oligarchs who will pay a disproportionately lower rate for the carbon they produce.

  • I read the Green New Deal and it was pretty stupid. It can be read here: On several occasions AOC goes off on numerous, irrelevant tangents. For example, on pg. 4 she talks about the "gender wage gap" which has been disproven time and time again (see Claudia Goldin a female economist from Harvard if you want a good read of the subject). Go figure. I don't know why that was relevant to CO2 in terms of ppm. Anyway, read it yourself. It more like a poem than anything truly tenable. IF YOU WANT TO READ SOMETHING GOOD ON TENABLE SOLUTIONS, see what NASA posits instead: Or Google "scientific american climate change".

  • THIS IS A COMMENT ON A FOX NEW FAKE NEWS CLIMATE DEBATE THAT I WANTED YOU TO SEE Id like you to check your facts and educate yourself b/c frankly if u attended a single course in earth science, it would be taught to you that CO2 is reflecting rays from the sun (A form of Radiation). Therefore heat bouncing off of the atmosphere and back down to the earth, this should generally heat up the surface of the earth. So even with all your fancy PhDs and the oh I got this award and attended this, and I was on the climate conference, doesn't permit you to deny any facts that a majority of the climate science community admits to a drastic increase in the C02 emissions. Also even according to the U.N.(for dumb people U.N.=united nations), WE HAVE YEARS TO CLEAN UP THIS SHIT. But hey ill gives you credit to all people of the generations before this(ahem US-midwest #sciencenonbelivers), I just want to live till I'm 60 but frankly cant b/c your generation is too concerned about the coal industry and industries that frankly emit carbon emissions but provide fewer jobs than clean energy(via solar and wind). SO if u wanna talk shit get your facts straight before you come to the media and try to spread this propaganda of false info, and yes you make call me young and uneducated but at least I want to live until I'm 60 and not try to dip out before shit hits the fan. #Greta Thunberg

  • What Bill Nye's statement ignores is the lack of elasticity behind fossil fuels. For those of you who have never taken microeconomics, elasticity is defined as the degree to which a demand or supply is sensitive to changes in price or income. We created a society where people need fossil fuels, no matter the cost. Not to mention, the reckless spending our government perpetuates means you wouldn't be likely to see that tax money again anytime soon. If we could adapt our society to consume fossil fuels and the atmosphere's ability to clean up pollution at a sustainable rate, fantastic! But let's be real. That isn't going happen unless we reach an event of apocalyptic significance.
