The lack of common sense and schizophrenia are the bigger problems.
Earth isn’t under any threat. Earth is stronger than Man. Earth protects itself, evolves and regenerates.
Earth has been around for millions of years, maybe more. Today, Man is so arrogant to think he is responsible for climate change that is threatening the planet.
The planet has dealt with millions of years of earthquakes, hurricanes, volcano eruptions, tectonic plate shifts, continental drifts, sun flares, sun spots, magnetic storms, magnetic shifts of the poles – being bombarded by comets, asteroids, meteors, dust storms, tsunamis, tornadoes, lightning storms, worldwide floods, cosmic rays, worldwide fires, tidal waves, erosion, recurring ice ages, nuclear bombs, 5 – 300 metric tons of space debris falling to earth daily…don’t you think straws and capitalism are killing the planet!
The Washington Scablands. Missoula, Montana – and their ancient bodies of water. Britain and France were once joined via the English Channel – the chalk cliffs have quartz rings on each side of the channel that line up perfectly with each of the two countries.
During the Ordovician Period, about 454 million years ago, Ohio experienced the effects of some of the largest volcanic eruptions in the history of Earth.
Geologists believe glaciers, at one time, covered at least 2/3 of Ohio. Those glaciers left their fingerprints in many places in Ohio.
According to geologists, Ohio used to be coastal; and had been completely underwater several times throughout earth’s existence.
Co2 is the problem? Wrong. Co2 is needed. The planet itself spews more Co2 than the entire history of civilization. Solar activity, not Co2, is that which drives our climate. The Grand Solar Minimum and the Polar Shift affects our weakened magnetosphere, and actually determines the set in stone jetstreams – which by the way – has changed. Extreme weather is the new normal; record cooling temperatures worldwide. Record heat levels in areas that never had it before. It’s all solar driven.
The dominant green house gas is water vapor, by far. It alone is responsible for almost 60 degF of warming. CO2 is a trace gas, making up just 0.0004 volume fraction of the atmosphere, and has been attributed to 1.5 degF since 1850. It will be another 200 years before CO2 doubles again, which is when we’ll see those effects. In that time, I’m sure we can all agree to reduce air pollution on our planet. Taking rights away from people or spending huge sums of money that will have absolutely no impact on this trend is simply reckless, irresponsible, and immoral.
Don’t be so arrogant to think Man is a threat to the planet! Man isn’t! Man is only a threat to himself. Civilizations have come and gone – long before the industrial revolution and plastic.
The planet has been here for millions of years, and will always be here…even after Man eliminates himself from existence.
The climate change has always been, and always will be. Nothing is immune to change, not the planet, not the climate.
