    Ya know, it's oddly satisfying to see Bill Nye swear. It makes him seem more human.
    Also looking forward to seeing what new technologies are made in our efforts to fix carbon emissions and such.

    Some might counter argue against global warming by saying "science has proven that climate change is natural...".
    This is what I say...
    "yes, there are also natural changes" and I would say "association fallacy", and also "yes, there is proven natural AND human caused global warming. Natural, because of many various astronomical conditions and AGW because we've converted HUNDREDS OF CUBIC MILES of hydrocarbons into extra CO2. And yes, folks, that PART of the science IS SETTLED! Do you dare to disagree? Then you must also disagree with the physics behind what stars are made out of, how lasers work. In Short, you must single handedly prove that ALL science is wrong, that the devise you're using to "deny" with is but a figment of the imagination, the world is flat and all the modern conveniences brought to YOU are not really happening.
    Science is objective (and only quantum physics and whatever happens inside of black holes are subjective). What's the difference? the science behind what stars are made out and how CO2 molecules re-emit infrared photons to keep the Earth from freezing over, is about as direct as 2+2, whereas, the science of what happens in a BH is just not understood, yet"

    The science of climate change is as uncertain as climate change itself. However, physics prove that CO2 is an infrared absorber. Therefore, the science behind global warming (which is defined as "extra radiative forcing") IS settled. Why? Because humanity has converted hundreds of cubic miles of hydrocarbons into extra CO2.

    It should also be "settled science" that the ONLY solution is the _INDUSTRIALIZATION_ of clean energy automation (not socialism)...
    We need about 250,000 sq mi of solar (complete with such recycling abilities) to power just today's world (accounting for the need to make up for low capacity factor and batteries). Or, we'd need like 100x current wind capacity (and the lots of batteries), or, simply 20,000 molten salt fast reactors (do we dare?).
    Without ALL these options, we will be TRICKED into economic ruin into an overheated biosphere - anyways.

    The science behind global warming (not climate change) is simple and direct, WHY is it that people still deny? It's because it's a VALID political issue. GW is being used as an EXCUSE for a leftist agenda! If only INDUSTRIALIZATION of clean energy automation was touted as the solution, We'd all agree and we'd have even more energy than what fossil fuels could ever provide! Indeed!

    If cows could be raised inside for at least part of the time, the methane released could be collected by the ventilation system of the shelter they are in.
    That might simultaneously reduce the methane in the atmosphere and provide us with a renewable fuel source (methane).
    Burning the methane as fuel would still release carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, but the amount of warming due to greenhouse emissions would still decrease.
    Such an arrangement could also be financially beneficial to cattle farmers, who could use that methane as a fuel to power their farm. Additionally, if other generators and/or vehicles ran on methane, cattle farmers could sell that fuel, which they could continue to produce by farming cattle in such a way that they can collect the methane

      +Robert Bernal if feeding them grass and fewer antibiotics causes fewer methane emissions, maybe it would help to have subsidies to help encourage raising them that way.
      I have also heard that grass fed is usually better for the products produced by cattle farming.
      In humans, antibiotics should generally only be used for a specific amount of time when trying to treat a health issue. Otherwise antibiotic resistant strains might happen.
      I don't know how it is with cows and antibiotics, but I imagine it's similar

      They might not fart as much if grass fed and raised properly without living in their own shit, having to take antibiotics...

      It will probably meltdown when the next Carrington event happens. Therefore, we might want to build up just 20,000 Molten Salt Fast Reactors, globally, to power everything. They can't meltdown, use much less fuel, require much less resources to build (than solar, wind and batteries) and would be cheaper than the existing NPP reactors to build.

    What to change in personal life:
    - cut down on meat consumption preferably go vegan)
    - choose a green energy contract.
    - minimise consumption in general.
    - put money on a green bank.
    - isolate house.
    - get solar panels.
    - get rid of car.
    Vote green!

    2040 now. Well as we approach 2040 yall will push it back some more. Whats next 2050, 2100? Lol
    AGW is propaganda. They had to switch from Global Warming to Climate Change because the climate is always changing and they can point to every change and blame climate change. It has NEVER been static.
    There is no evidence that co2 is leading tempature.
    Between the Modern Maximum and Medieval Maximum there were four grand solar minima.
    The Wolf, Sporer, Maunder and Dalton Minimum.
    The Dalton ended around 1820.
    The graph used to show "unprecedented" global warming starts in 1880 to present.
    The Modern Maximum started around 1914 and may have ended around 2007. It double peaked. Once arpund 1950 and again around the 1990s.
    All the warming yall are so worked up about is well within natural variability.
    The Modern Maximum may be over or it could surprise us and continue on for a few more years or even a few decades. There is no way to predict what it will do with any real accuracy.
    But keep living in your psuedoscience world with no evidence co2 is leading temapture changes now.
    I guess adjusting and "correcting" data sets to fit your theory instead of adjusting the theory to fit the unaltered data counts as evidence in psuedoscience world. Have fun with that.

    There's a bill for example the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act that gives tax revenues back to the people. The carbon tax or cap and trade sets has goal of the negative externalities of emissions, not merely for generating revenue. In economic terms, it puts output at the equilibrium. Why do people seem to oppose? Lack of information?

    Unfortunately, if the US government collects a tax on carbon, there is little to no chance the proceeds will find its way to investment in clean technology. They will spend it on kickbacks to the same oligarchs who will pay a disproportionately lower rate for the carbon they produce.

  • Oscar Wilde
    Oscar Wilde Před 3 dny +1

    I read the Green New Deal and it was pretty stupid.

    It can be read here:

    On several occasions AOC goes off on numerous, irrelevant tangents. For example, on pg. 4 she talks about the "gender wage gap" which has been disproven time and time again (see Claudia Goldin a female economist from Harvard if you want a good read of the subject). Go figure. I don't know why that was relevant to CO2 in terms of ppm.

    Anyway, read it yourself. It more like a poem than anything truly tenable. IF YOU WANT TO READ SOMETHING GOOD ON TENABLE SOLUTIONS, see what NASA posits instead:

    Or Google "scientific american climate change".
