    Carbon pricing is fucking stupid. What do all plants emit at night , what dose every breathing creature emit? It’s just the best money making machine since income tax.

      Sure. If you completely misrepresent carbon pricing, of course it will sound fucking stupid.

    Fun fact about cow gas. It's because of a parasite bacteria that doesn't help cows digest grass, but merely eats it, robbing cows of nutrition. This bacteria can't eat seaweed. Seaweed is great for cows, more nutritious for them (since nutrition isn't being stolen from them) and eliminates methane output.

    damn. almost made it to 5 minutes without a completely disingenuous argument. so close. you know full well they're not talking about the actual resolution, but the laughing stock that was the FAQ's published alongside it. that said, they did remove that within 24 hours, but only because it was so laughable that people thought it was a fucking parody, and then people couldn't tell the real one from the other parodies of it that followed.

    Climate change is global warming, we want to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to enable the earth to cool down more efficiently. You can combat climate change by heating less for example... And you also forgot to mention the most natural mean to capture greenhouse gas and reduce the temperature on earth all at once and it's the tree... Why do people that "like nature" don't like trees? It's something I'll never understand... It would be too easy I guess... Too natural... Restore too much of nature...

    Banning hamburgers wouldn't be communism just an honest attempt to improve food.
    I would start by melting down the bronze in the US confederacy monuments to provide the copper to build robot vehicles to ship seawater to evaporated seas.
    In fairness the UK has outsourced a lot of its carbon emissions by manufacturing in China and India.
    Hold on the Canadian model is just a redistributive tax and incentivises them to consume more! Which Muppet devised that? It's probably also inflationary. Now my Grandmother was Canadian but as far as that idiocy goes I'm with the South Park guys. The money needs to go into pollution capture, non biodegradable plastics recycling, alternative fuels etc not consumption.

    These are the facts. World population is increasing. We need more food! How to grow more food: (1) A warmer climate. (2) More food for the plants i.e CO2 in the air. Luckily we have seen improvements already. We have slowly gotten out of the Little Ice Age during the last 1-200 years with the planet warming up again, and with higher levels of CO2 we have seen a greening of the planet the last decades, which has resulted in a huge increase in global food production.
    The data:
    And because of this and an unprecedented access to cheap fossile fuel during the last 100 years we are now better off, when it comes to economy, health, education, technology, social equality, war/peace, etc, than any time in our known history. We are in a time with more resources and human well-beeing than ever before, and it's getting better every year. A hundred years ago you were more educated than most if you could read, and wealthier than most if you owned shoes. And you had to work 12+ hours every day just to put food on the table. We should be thankful for living in this time and not in the ages before us. The generations living today are more privileged than any generation before us, thanks to cheap fossile fuel.

    Look, there is no legitimate evidence that proves human green house gases cause global warming on their own or that we are the ones who carry most of the blame, there is only evidence there is global warming, period, like it has existed before many times, the Sun has a solar cycle, there are solar maximums and minimums, and in fact there's going to be global cooling very soon since the sun entered a solar minimum cycle in 2014, and it has gradually had less and less sun spots, zero in 2019, the effects of the solar minimum will become evident by 2020s where a Mini-Ice Age is expected to happen that can last decades or centuries like it happened before from 1400 to 1850. There's your "Climate Change" the sun will always have a greater control and effect than us no matter what we do. Like I said, we should be making pollution the issue since pollution is something we can actually change directly, besides there are more sources of pollution than there are of human-green house gases, pollution shares sources with climate change, but it has more on top of that. Nobody focuses on Pollution but Climate Change is advertised and has much propaganda behind it, yet all I hear for a solution is 'carbon taxes'(SOMEONE is trying to get rich with this scam) know how you don't get rich and actually do something that can cost money, change industries forever and save all animal life on land and sea? fixing Human Pollution.

    Bill Nye is in no way or form a scientist. Bill is a comedian actor; and I thing maybe he's a mechanical engineer like I am. ..Which is a far cry from being a scientist. I'm borderline half retarded so I know Bill ain't to far off. I very very very strongly believe, Bill Nye is a homosexual child rapist who cruises Hollywood Blvd looking for queer underage prostitutes to have oral sex for money with. i'll bet a million dollars John Oliver is a gay pedophile too.

    Global warming is occuring naturaly. People cant affect weather nor the climate.
    We are in a heating period off the Earth, just like there was a cooling period 20 thousand years ago. It is just another way for corrupt rich people like Al Gore to scam the people for billions of dollars. And Bernie Sanders of course wants it to buy his 4th mansion.

      Can you tell me what causes this process and give evidence that the current warming trend is the effect of this cause?
      “I simply do not think that humans have the power to shift the climate.”
      Based on what do you think this?
      “It is simply that the Earth is getting closer to the Sun.”
      Can you cite any evidence that the earth is moving closer to the sun and that this is causing the current warming trend?

    The only problem with the European way of managing climate change is they do not factor the size of your country into the equation, only the size of the population, that's because if you compared all of Europe to the USA, same geographical size roughly, they have the same amount of carbon produced 6 billion tonnes, instead Europe want to create a system where say Denmark is compared to the USA, Under the European system Australia is one of the Highest polluters, even though there country is the same size as Europe. Why does size matter? In Denmark using a car isn't necessary rather its a choice, where as in Australia you can't have the type of transport infrastructure that Denmark has because the population is spread out and the size is so large, also by not considering the size of a country you are apply to exclude the fact Australia and the US have more forests and responsible oceans to offset there carbon emissions than say Luxembourg

    You don't need to wait the amazon is burning, the Great Barrier Reef is dying and in Australia one of the worlds biggest exporters of food, we are going through the worst drought ever and our politicians are arguing whether the 3.9 billion dollars in our infrastructure fund should be used on roads to make someone's trip home 15min quicker in Sydney or Melbourne, or alternatively use that money to build dams, water pipelines and water recycling plants so my part of the country that produces most of the food for Australia and the world doesn't run out of water in 4-5months, you would think the answer would be oblivious, yes the answer is the road because millions of people that vote use the road, where as the people that make the all the food in the country are only thousands of people simple economics people.
