⚧ C.T.L.W. You figure it out
My Endo doc went over my blood work. "I see your estrogen level is now at 315, do you feel like you have too much Estrogen now?"
I told her "... N... N.. No..." and started crying.
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
It is and it will happen no doubt but over time. I think that in USA and several other countries for example the sale of non commercial vehicles that use fossil fuels will be outlawed within the next 20-30 years. I think we have a deal with China as well happening. The trick is to incentivize it. Remember when littering was a huge issue? It still happens obviously but it isn't nearly bad as it once was. Incentivizing the oil industry will eventually stop as well. You don't even realize how many things you have in your house that are petroleum based and will continue to be. It's insane. The industry won't go anywhere anytime soon. In several major nations the population is beginning to even out or at least not grow as fast as they were in years past, specifically places such as Canada, USA, Japan, and UK.
"We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan
Co2 emmisions from Human activities are a fraction of what is produced naturally and then its still a trace gas in our atmosphere.
Manipulating temperature data to arrive at a predetermined conclusion, which is what the NOAA has been doing for years doesn't prove anything othet than the Pro AGW agenda is highly corrupted by leftist ideologues.
If the NOAAs process of " homogenizeding " temperature data was scientifically legitimate WHY did they change their minds and rescind their assertion that July 2012 was the hottest month on record ?
Ill tell you why they did it. They were outed by a REAL Scientist who exposed their fraudulent manipulations.
In response to the OP, climate change cannot be stopped because that's what the planet does and has been doing for billions of years.
Secondly, the attempts to make fighting man made effects on climate change has been lost. It was lost when the "cause" was co-opted by those who want to use the climate as a means to tax and redistribute wealth from first world nations to petty dictatorships in African and other third world nations. It was also lost when it was co-opted by charlatans like Al Gore who used and abused the issue to collect personal wealth and fame.
Thirdly, there may be scientists who have pure hearts and intentions when it comes to fear of mans' effects on the planet, but they too are far outnumbered by those selling their integrity and expertise for grant and research dollars to fund their careers and existence.
Fortunately, all of the above will prove to destroy the efforts of those who want to punish production and success in the name of scientific progress. No doubt, as in my home of Ontario, Canada, idiot politicians will be able to cause great harm to some economies and force unnecessary hardship and destruction but they will ultimately be replaced by saner heads and the damage mended. And as has been the case since man started walking the earth, we will spend time commenting and moaning and occasionally complementing and enjoying our changing climate.
A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.
The Earth manifests many signs of life. Growth. Change. Humidity control. All signs of Earth life seem to support all other life. Now if you get a slight infection, a pimple might form and burst and release the pressure and begin a cure. From the Earth's point of view, outside planetary influences, contamination of the human virus being the primary one, might cause a planetary cure of a similar nature, like a bunch of volcanos (pimples) blowing their tops simultaneously to block the sun's rays and adjust the atmosphere to kill the virus (humans). I know that the human ego rejects the argument, but common sense and reason do not.
