What do you think the two most significant contributions that mankind is making to climate change and why?
Contribution number one:
The industrial revolution – coal burning factories/trains/steamengines, more jobs, more money, more babies, more economy, higher standard of living = more burning of coal = more CO2 emmissions = artificial global warming.
Contribution number two:
Henry Ford – A genius. He invented the assembly line for automobiles. Better transportation = more burning of oil= better economy, more jobs, more babies, higher standard of living = more burning of oil.
Dont worry fossil fuels will run out soon and we’ll all starve to death because our farming systems rely heavily on fossil fuels; it kinda like mother nature’s way of saying fuck you. Oh wait we are a part of mother nature, I guess she made a mistake:(
the most significant man has ever contributed to this issue is the way he thinks. and unfortunately it looks like we do not think and act responsibly according to our skills and capabilities.
we often disregard the future in our decisions.
we often think of the economy and the cheapest way to do what’s right and responsible.
we often choose to let others sacrifice for our own needs.
and these i think is not right. these should change.
NOT TO KEEP THE LIGHT SWITCHED ON IN DAY TIME:
because it spreads heat all over.
NOT TO EAT NON-VEG: it kills up the animals
NOT TO WASTE WATER: It will be over soon
REDUCE DE FORRESTATION: It will decrease fresh air and CO2 will be all over and the air will not be balanced as(78% nitrogen 21% oxygen and 1% CO2)
There are none, nor have there ever been. Global Warming is just a theory, neither proved or disproved. Saying humans are responsible for, and can somehow prevent, global warming is like saying we can prevent another Ice Age. Even Al Gore, global-warming- specialist and internet-innovator, has backed off on some of his previous positions. The planet Earth happens to be resilient enough to survive all the catastrophic natural disasters , like volcanic eruptions and natural forest fires, that affect the atmosphere. People are going to believe what they want to believe, but when it begins to form a consensus it deserves to be looked at with more of an open mind. For 2000 years everyone believed spiders had six legs. People took it as gospel because the theory was declared by the great Plato. It wasn’t until 2000 years that a gentleman named Lamarck(sic?) actually started counting spider’s legs. It is now common knowledge that most spiders have 8 legs. The point I’m trying to make is that we shouldn’t accept everything noted people tell us. We should have an open mind and look at things with a little more common sense.
People and animals breathing emits carbon dioxide. If you really believe the global warming hoax maybe you should wipe out the population of a couple of major countries. That would cut carbon dioxide emissions considerably.
Humans, when they exhale, are a major contributor to global warming. We should all be chewing CO2 gas absorbing lozenges to reduce our personal emissions.
Higher fuel bills and taxes.
Vacuum cleaners; sucking up the cold air on the floor and producing hot air as exhaust. Unexplored and yet tremendous cause of local/regional/global temperature change.
Ice plants; storing tremendous volumes of cold air that would otherwise be cooling the atmospere. They also produce hot air as exhaust.
Are they linked? It’s so hard to say. Still there may be something there that Al Gore has missed. Something hard to identify and even harder to cash in on.
One: taxing the farts out of cows and pigs I think that will help a lot because it will make a lot of people unable to afford the tax which will mean not as many cows and pigs which means not as much food for us but we will make do for the good of mother earth right?
Two: Claiming more land in the name of conservation and not allowing drilling for oil we should all be like Europe and pay our fair share for gas that will help ?
Man is making no significant contribution to global warming. That big yellow ball that comes up in the East every morning has way more influence than any mere human.
None. The sun is much more powerful than we are. We are utterly insignificant by comparison.
