Everybody would flip a coin. Whoever gets tails dies!

But in seriousness, population is increasing at a high rate and is probably the biggest factor when it comes to pollution. Either we're going to polute this planet into a barley liveable wasteland or at somepoint agree to try a population control method.

Either way, a choice will be made in the future. Not enough people, governments, or corporations are trying to reduce their pollution levels.

I don’t think that is true at all
There is plenty enough to go around just so much greed

I live in a country where the population is smaller than 20 odd cities around the world and the country is the 6th largest in the world
We could fit 9 Texas’s in our land mass and have a population for the whole continent smaller than the Texas population. Plenty of water and capacity to distribute it

I don’t think you really know what you are talking about

Toss a coin, no
Get rid of the populations of those countries that suck up all the resources and don’t share and still complain they havnt got enough

Who is “WE” lol??

Most Americans believe in climate change..

Basically all the teachers, scientists, college professors, computer programmers, exc.. all believe in climate change..


It is only hard right conservatives, Bible thumpers, and other easily propagandized types who are used to believing in fairy tales anyway..




So I guess your “we “ meant like MAYBE 25% of the population?


So you complain about a generalisation by making a generalisation, some people are just mind numbing lay dumb

So why not. I have read that young trees absorb CO2 just like when farmers pump in CO2 into a greenhouse to get their young plants to thrive and grow. I also read that when a tree or any other plant reach a certain age they begin to out gas CO2. I am no expert on this but like the oceans being a CO2 sink, they become acidic whereas a tree can handle it. I am all for this Thoughts?

The only fix for climate change is more taxes or pay to play tactics. Get with the program

You don't need to believe in global warming to see the devastating effects of pollution on the planet.


But that is the big deal out there isn't it? That pollution leads to global warming. I get that you are fully sold on anthropogenic warming, but trying to tie global climate change to man made pollution will be a huge disservice to everyone. I can get fully on board with cleaning up our environment and preventing corps from making easy money by polluting.

I just think that trying to tie localized pollution to climate change will set us back decades.

But to allow yourself to believe the lies about it are not the same thing at all. Pollution is that harm we do to our ecosystem that Mother Earth will clean off when we move away if we leave the area alone for a few years. Global Warming is the Sun. We can control our Pollution but to believe in Man Made Global Warming is Doom Porn, straight up BS.

i don't think all these people claiming they want to end climate change actually care about it at all and just see it as an opportunity to push their environmentalist ideals and influence things while others just see it as an opportunity to push the green tech industry and make money, if they actually cared they would be pushing for nuclear power and we could've stopped air pollution years ago, hell if environmentalists hadn't gotten in the way of nuclear technology then the oil corporations would've never gained such power and influence over the world, and pollution would have never gotten so bad in the first place and we wouldn't have to worry about climate change because everything would be powered by nuclear power plants and nuclear batteries.

Im not educated enough to argue gobal warming, but reducing our pollution seems obvious and your awnser of "we just gotta move away for a bit" seems pretty silly.

However, i doubt man-made global qarming is 100% a hoax . Hundreds of scientists are just making things up or stupid?

Sure we can fit more people in the world but we don't have the responsibility or ethics to handle it. Overpopulation creates problems and pollution.

Humanity is too greedy and territorial to allow increased population with low pollution and sharing of resources.

It doesn't matter because we don't have a say in the matter. I just think population should be lowered because we simply don't have the wisdom and responsibility to handle it. Why do we need more people anyway?

Farmers leave land sit for a few years and rotate their crops to replenish the soil. Nothing that came from the Earth, man adapted or not, can withstand the earth recycling system, not one thing.

ETA

From the Earth or even the Solar System, it gets recycled eventually. When we poison the ecosystem we harm Humans and some wildlife. Mother Earth will flick us off one day.

I star'd you but wont to take it back. It isn't 100% Hoax it is a flat out misinformation campaign.

They can't tell you what temp it was in 1930's anymore after we had used those records since, well 1930's because they altered the records and voided scientific methods to do mental gym. You are supposed to do what your told so, believe what they say at your own peril. Just let the scientist the news lets you hear decide it all and then you will challenge the scientist with data that proves they lied. WTH?

This rather sadly explains why out of some 10 clients I recently asked why did they concreted 100% of their commercial/residential property, they quite demonically responded variations of the same thing:

'CUZ I DONT WANT TO DEAL WITH LIVING THINGS'

One thing we forget is that we (humans) aren't in control. There are forces of nature that balance everything (like the analogy of moving away and nature fixes it). Eventually, the mess we make will reach a point where people will die from it. Disease will wipe out a large portion of the population and the cycle repeats.

In the meantime, there are people in the present who are looking to make money from this and they come up with terms like "Anthropogenic Global Warming". Carbon tax! The big polluters will buy credits in order to continue polluting. I would actually be in favor of something like that if all the money that goes into it is used to find alternative forms of energy. But we all know where there's money, there's corruption.

That will work great for rural areas. Mega cities are the problem.

It's a great theoretical idea but in practice where is all the land that equates to the size of the USA were these trees will be planted? There is already pressure on land all over the world.
