Not caring about climate change

Is it normal for humanity to not take climate change seriously enough? Firstly if you don't believe in climate change, I don't care about your opinion. Because 99.99 percent of scientists know that climate change is real, and that humans have accelerated it to a dangerous level. I mean look at the flooding going on right now, or record heat, and wild fires are even worse because they create heat and kill vegetation. All of these things are happening now in the US. And during hurricane season we are having to go around the alphabet for names more then once during a year sometimes, hurricanes are getting worse and hitting places they didn't use to. It's already not good, but I think that eventually climate change will kill millions when whole countries can't feed their people because of droughts, wars may start. Different places on earth will become uninhibited and there will be a big refugee problem.

Is It Normal?

  • People agreed with your opinion back in the sixties. Nothing happened. People agreed with your opinion in the nineties. Nothing happened. People agree with your opinion now. Nothing is going to happen.

      • Things are always happening. They never lead to anything, though.

        • Careful here, Clunk. The Book of Revelation has many symbolic references to water and oceans. There are references to the oceans boiling away which cannot happen literally, but is likely a reference to super-evaporation where water molecules reach above the stratosphere and are blown away by alpha particles of the solar wind. We may be a few centuries away from enough atmospheric heat to initiate this environmental process.

          I do not want to discuss this inevitability with you any further. As you know, my religion is science. We have agreed to disagree on the Bible which I think has a few good ideas, but is mostly folklore that was written centuries ago for people who believed in magic.

          I am raising the super-evaporation inevitability because I am confident you will find apocalyptic shit like this to be interesting.

          • I recognize that, and I recognize it as an inevitability. However, I would say that there is no reason to stop it, since the Apocalypse of St. John is, of course, about the end times, when Jesus shall return, and that will happen no matter what, so trying to put it off is pointless.

            I do find it quite interesting, yes, though I would hardly say I need to be careful about what I'm saying, since, if it happens, it's going to happen no matter what, and nothing we can do will stop it.

            • I'm just a normal person who drives a pickup truck. I try to drive less now though, ha. But I think if EVERYONE would do something differently, or make a small sacrifice it would help the planet. I have planted close to 20 trees on my property,mostly pecans,and plan to plant more. This is just a small thing, but it might help a little.

    • I made a little album of past the predictions here from websites back in the early 2000s.

  • When every single decade we only have 10-15 years before the world ends due to climate change, you kinda catch onto bullshit

    • I don't agree. No one said the world would end. But it is getting worse and worse, eventually it is going to be really bad. And maybe eventually people will stop being dumb and selfish. When they realize that this cause is worth more then extra money in their pockets. We are doing it to ourselves. Honestly I think government and consumers need to change. Seriously this will affect everyone, even if you deny it. It's already affecting pretty much everyone, in different places, in different ways to be honest.

  • I don't think humanity wants to accept things are as bad as they are, nor are we responsible for it. So much damage happens out of the public eye and on the microscopic level where you may *not* necessarily see the visible effects until decades later. I'm just starting to see stuff that was warned about 20 years ago when I was a kid skeptics swore wouldn't happen.

    She is our Eternal Mother and we were meant to take care of Her. That's my belief.

  • The debate isnt whether or not climate change exists. The climate changes naturally regardless of pollution. The only question is how much are humans speeding it up with pollution. Im surprised if even 1% of scientists say it "doesnt exist". The sahara dessert was a forest as little as 10,000 years ago

      • 2008 quote by prestigious Nasa scientist Dr Hanson: "in 5 to 10 years the artic will be ice free"

        2004 quote by Pentagon: "Britain will be plunged into a siberian like climate by 2020"

        2013 quote by the US Navy: "artic will be ice free by 2016"

        I got snapshots of all kinda articles of these crazy predictions from the early 2000s. I was really worried about climate change myself when I was younger because they told me in school and through the media I was basically living in armageddon. Im 32 now and I've looked into it quite abit. Their predictions did not come true and when you dig deeper you'll see that they dont really know how much we are speeding up climate change. If they did they wouldnt be wrong over and over.

        • Some of those quotes don't make sense, I'm not sure if they are all real. I'm not a scientist but I can make sense of what I see. The first step to figuring something out is to admit that there is a problem and not acting like there isn't one. Our grandchildren will live with our choices.

            Ive attached some snapshots of articles I got those from. Im assuming you are young because when i was growing up these predictions were very popular on the news and in schools. This is why older people are not as worried as climate change and its usually younger people that are because they havent lived through all the predictions.

            If they know how much we are speeding up the process of climate change how come they are so wrong in every prediction?

            • They were wrong about the time frame maybe, but the climate events are obviously getting worse every year. It's already bad, ask the people who have to ration water in California, or the people in Houston and New Orleans about hurricanes.

        • Exactly. Like, who can forget "The Population Bomb" and all of the horrific crap that led to? These people have never been right, they're never going to be right, and it's been shown that when people listen to them, terrible things happen.

    • That's the kind of thinking that doesn't get anything done. What if the founding fathers, George Washington, Ben Franklin, and all of the rest of the had your attitude? There wouldn't be a USA, They changed the world.

        • I see what you're saying. Billions of people created the pollution. But what I wish for is for billions of people to do something, anything. And billions start with 1 person.

            • It’s a once in a lifetime experience. Human sacrifice and other irrationalities are even more entertaining than Donald Trump’s deranged wackos in trances from Joseph Goebble’s rhetoric.

              The world is a sick sad place. Excitement at its best.
