There are two ways to lower atmospheric CO2: breathe less or plant more trees. Which makes more sense?
Another trillion trees would be a good start. Let's get started.
Don’t worry, be happy!😃👍
I think we are ok. And CO2 is a lagging indicator, not a cause.
We need less people
Because theres too many damn people
Deal, but only if I get to choose who lives and who dies. Also I demand a unicorn as a gift.
I just want to see the numbers go down, dont need to actually kill people. Just slow down the birth rate/immigration to keep numbers from growing
“Too many people”. That’s not really an answer. The entire world population can fit inside of Texas at a population density of NYC. There’s more than enough room for billions more.
I dont mean by what we can actually handle or physically deal with. I'm talking about amount of people and be happy. Ny density where people live on top of each other, built up, is insane to me.
I want to see "big cities" that have everything big cities do but without rush hour traffic, long lines, and any of the other things that create time inconveniences.
Bluerum... let me get this straight. We’re going to reduce the number of people by restricting immigration?
My concern is the number of people in america. Dont really care about the rest of the world.
That’s evident. But you made your statement in response to a poll about decreasing atmospheric CO2 levels
I was supporting the idea that we need less people on earth overall. Then it became about what "We" need.
Oh, so you do care about the population of the rest of the world?
And when did the scope of the conversation change? I can’t find that in the thread anywhere 😂
Only in how it relates to how it effects us here.
Every time I go to town I say there are to many people. Stop moving to Texas damn it.
We can stop making GMO food, Ban insecticides and pesticides. Force growing only organic. That would reduce the world population fast.
Or y'know, maybe cut down on the billions of tons of it coming from fossil fuels.
Do it organically. There’s no need to tax people to change the behavior.
Rat. If you get your dumbäss friend Warren to not take away Bill Gates money that he’s using to develop Thorium power, we can get enough cheap clean safe electricity to get all those coal plants to switch. But the Chinese are in her pocket to make poisonous solar cells so she probably won’t budge.
Literally who said anything about taxes.
Do you want to lower Co2?
Well, isn’t carbon credits and higher taxes a big part of the Democrat’s solution?
Exactly. The left, and I believe including Ratty, want to charge everyone a huge amount of taxes to send to Chinese companies for poisonous solar cells. They believe that if we put enough taxes on fossil fuels we’ll just stop using them. Obviously it doesn’t work that way. Poor people cannot afford $100,000 Tesla so they just end up paying a lot more for gas. But if the Democrats would allow billionaires that are investing in clean energy like thorium to replace the coal fired plants then electricity would be a lot cheaper than it is now and people will want to buy an electric car because electricity will almost be free. So market based solutions are obviously the best way to go. I just saw a new battery that will go 1500 miles and is totally recyclable. And two new electric motors that are extremely efficient. Those inventions are because of capitalism not socialism. Taking Bill Gates money and throwing in a black hole will not save us.
Rat powers his phone with a hand crank generator,
Hey Breck, do you like actually pay attention to what people who disagree with you are saying? Literally everyone on "the left" has been talking about investment in clean energy research and development.
Talk is cheap.
I mean, everyone screams socialism to stop them whenever they try. And what exactly have republicans been doing except denying it's even a concern?
Not even the “socialist” countries that you love in Europe are even close to doing he things that The Democratic candidates want.
Rat. When you say investing in clean energy, I’m with you. I just disagree with not investing in thorium power. It’s what will save us. Cheap, safe, clean and abundant. So cheap that the poor will be able to afford electric cars. But the Democratic candidates are against any nuclear power. That’s psychotic.
Or fix China
My concern is the oceanic acidity and sulfur in the atmosphere.
Grasslands make more CO2 than forests. The grasslands have been depleted by poor farming practices and poor land management by removing large grazing mammals like buffalo and cows. Restoring these grasslands with cows or buffalo will suck all the excess Co2 out of the atmosphere. Problem solved.
kscott, Don’t give the DemLefties any ideas on that “kill people for CO2 reduction thing”😱🤫‼️
They’re already using it as a excuse for abortion. Knowing the left, in time there’s a good chance this becomes radicalized.
