    Re: What is your view on climate change?

    Is this a massive problem? Is it a massive impact?
    Yes it is, if you are willing to put down your greed long enough to take an honest look.
    The nature of the atmosphere, that is necessarily to life, can easily be demonstrated to be a finely tuned delicate balance of gasses, events and phenomena.Our disregard for this balance and the pollutants we callously toss into the biosphere are getting the mechanisms of the atmosphere to change and shift in ways that have unintended and devastating consequences for life as we have come to know it.
    The efforts of a very few, to curb these consequences, are being thwarted by those who benefit financially by the casual nature of our polluting proclivities.
    These facts can be easily realized by any observer with an unbiased eye and common sense. To deny that these are the facts requires a willful ignorance and monetarily induced stupidity.
    If we are not willing to curb our polluting habits we need to accept that life, as we have come to know it, will be very different and the earth will no longer be a very pleasant place to live.

    Oh... right.

    Then please tell me what this problem will be. I have done a lot of research around and about and cannot find any peer reviewed predictions which scare me at all. The IPCC@s numbers certainly done cause me to lose sleep.

    Exactly what I was saying;

    The difference between "Yes, humans have some effect on climate." and "We are all doomed." is invisable to the stupid.

    Just more evidence of a conspiracy….

    Don't you realize that when it comes to science, Joe Blow on the internet forum knows a lot more about climate science than actual climate scientists with as much as a decade of education, and far longer than that working and conducting research in the field. It doesn't matter if they are a lawyer, mechanic, preacher, accountant, or dishwasher, all they know is that they are right, and those stupid climate scientists are wrong.

    I believe climate change occurs naturally regardless of how minute or severe those changes are.It is something that has been going on for billions of years on this planet and it is stupid to use a hundred or two hundred years of temperatures changes to claim we are having man made induced climate change. If the billions of years of climate change was a bucket of water the last 100-200 years would be microscopic drop of water.



    My view on 'Climate Change' and on change in general is that it is going to happen whether anyone wants it or not.

    Don't think so?- Wait and see.

    Just talking about this is a waste of time.

    Those who don't prepare for it will suffer the consequences.





    Anyone who thinks that the human race has no control over, and can't affect what happens on this planet is out of touch with reality.

    Other than mass executions (or less forceful population reductions), I don't see any practical solutions. I do think filtration, regrowth and other methods can help slow or alleviate things - somewhat...
    Before the 7 billion humans doing all that nasty stuff, what caused all the natural climate changes? Like, going through the ice ages and warming periods were pretty drastic.

    Re: What is your view on climate change?

    This poll is flawed. One of the responses should be:

    If of course can occur naturally, however the current warming and projected warming is largely anthropogenic.

    The poll as it is would be like asking do forest fires occur naturally, or are all of the set by humans. Leaving out of course that some occur naturally, all did in the distant past, but some today are caused by humans.

    Mostly Milankovitch cycles - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia and various positive feedbacks resulting from that initial catalyst. However, volcanic activity also played a roll as well as over the longer term to the movement of the continents.

    Come back and tell us all about it after your seaside home is destroyed by climate change.

    What causes climate change doesn't really matter.

    What does matter is that those who don't prepare for it will suffer the consequences.

    Wait and see.

    I have little pity for those who, out of wrong-headed stupidity don't prepare and let mother nature destroy what they have built.
