    Mark all the things we'd have to do to reverse global warming.

    If you have another idea, mark "other" and put what it is in the comments.
    As much as the warmers tell you.

    And this is important because........?????????

    Technically we are still in an inter-glacial period of the last ice age.....this is why we have ice at the poles (which through the eons is not the norm)

    Seriously...what a bunch of hooey!!!

    Since our species crawled from the primordial ooze around 300,000 years ago we have lived through vast changes in climate....really hot....really cold....over and over!!!

    The fact is that cold periods have always been far harder on the humans and have always corresponded to large die offs of the human population.......hot periods have always corresponded with increases in population and expansions of civilization.

    From around 1300 AD to the mid 1800 the sun was in a solar minimum....global temperatures dropped causing crops to fail and millions starved to death......right now we seems to be heading into another solar minimum (Maunder minimum). Since 2015 we have had snow in places like the Sahara desert and Hawaii.....both of which lay between the tropic of cancer and the tropic of Capricorn...that's the freaking tropics!!!

    Snow in the tropics!!! Global cooling???......... Now that's something to be panicked about! Global warming??? (YAWN)

    The fact is there are REAL ecological problems we need to deal with.......deforestation.....millions of tons of plastic floating in the oceans.......frankly things waaay more important than temperature!

    Concrete manufacturing plants put out a hell of a lot of CO2. I'm not sure about the chemistry.

    Read where if the Chinese manufacture of concrete were a country, it would be the number 1 producer of CO2 in the world.

    Beef production is another big producer of CO2, and chopping down forests for range land doesn't help either.

    What global warming? This summer been the mildest I can remember. I hope we don't get a lot of snow this winter like we did last winter.

    We can't stop global warming, no matter what we do. That's the point. The left want to destroy the planet to save the planet, not realizing that the planet can't be saved in the first place. By the way, carbon capture technology is the way to go.

    If you wait around long enough, you can make a post about "what to do about global cooling" when the next ice age begins.

    Or -

    If you wait even longer you can make a post about the impending scorching of the planet when our sun becomes a red dwarf.

    The Earth: humans don't control the temperature of it.

    Global warming will vastly increase the agricultural production areas of Canada, the next ice age will likely scrape civilization off the surface of Canada.

    Absolutely agree about carbon capture being the ticket.......Exxon Mobil has technology right now that can lead to huge plants that that can scrub a million tons per day if they scale up as planned. ......then taking the carbon....adding hydrogen to it in a way known as "gas to liquid tech.......and you get gasoline!

    Making fuel environmentally neutral!

    Several companies are using similar technology to take natural gas and convert it to a group three base stock......a type of synthetic lubricant

    Yep.......this nails it!
    Bottom line. ....we don't control the temperature on this planet. ....the sun does and long term we are at its mercy

    While I'm all in favor of nuclear, I voted for Other, because I think there are a variety of reasons to switch over (though I would agree that those who claim that Global Warming Is Gonna Kill Us All rather expose how little they actually believe that when they oppose that switch).

    For my other:

    If you honestly think that the amount of CO2 in the air is a problem, offer a bounty to create a mass scrubber. Maybe some kind of machine that would absorb CO2, and pump out 02 (to really make it better for everyone).

    If you wanted to save money, in fact, you could design such a system to be self-replicating, so that initial investments could grow naturally until C02 is restored to a more natural balance.

    Heck, we could even make it an organic-positive system, and you'd be promoting wildlife and nature preserves while we're at it.

    If only there was such a thing already. In that case, we could just use that, you know?
