Climate Change: Scientists Say "Last Chance"

Problem is population control, reduced breeding, selective breeding, socioeconomic driven population control is linked to all the worst political movements in history ever
Nature has managed population control in the past by having an ice age every 10000 years or so. We should be having one about now but we have put so much crap into the atmosphere it's not likely to happen for another 100000 years!

How Often Do Ice Ages Happen?

"We should be heading into another ice age right now," Sandstrom told Live Science. But two factors related to Earth's orbit that influence the formation of glacials and interglacials are off. "That, coupled with the fact that we pump so much carbon dioxide into the atmosphere [means] we're probably not going to enter a glacial for at least 100,000 years," he said.

So basicaly we're screwed. It doesn't matter what we do now, the Earth will warm up and the population will rise

The current world population of 7.2 billion is projected to increase by 1 billion over the next 12 years and reach 9.6 billion by 2050, according to a United Nations report launched today, which points out that growth will be mainly in developing countries, with more than half in Africa.13 Jun 2013

If only the Pope would allow condoms!

In the mean time throw your plastic into the sea, drive an old diesel motor and wear your clothes once before chucking them in a landfil. It won't make the slightest difference to what's going to happen.
 
Told you; a good pandemic is what is needed. Go out and start spreading your cold's, flu, STD's and other lergy's, then hope that ebola leaps onto a plane and hit's India.......a billion of them, WTF.

The most scary population figure I saw was that Nigeria is expected to have a population of 500,000,000 by 2050.............where are they going to go?
The arrogance of humanity is it thinks it’s more than just a species in an ecosystem. The planet doesn’t care. In geological terms we are ******* Grains of sand. In the future Our entire existence will be observed as a dark smeared layer of geological strata :mrgreen:

Drive that Land Rover, fly to hot places, **** hot chicks (get a vasectomy)
 
Do we know why if all the glaciers are melting and the fresh water is going into the sea raising sea levels, why salinity is increasing?

Or do we just accept that CO2 increases salt levels

Nelsons Step is still were he left in in 1805

Funny thing is, Portsmouth is building huge sea defences to stop the sea that’s not rising rising
 
Fairbourne will be one test of how we deal that problem, the local council have it listed as being set for managed retreat of which of course the locals aren't happy about

Fairbourne is a community at risk from various sources - coastal storms, rising sea levels, a river that carries mountain run off and a high groundwater table

"The village can be defended sustainably for the next 40 years but from 2045 Gwynedd Council believe it will have to be decommissioned and from 2055 it will not be possible to defend.

"My constituents are looking like they will become the UK's first climate refugees. Climate change is thankfully now at the top of the agenda and rightly so.

"It is hugely regrettable that we are at a stage where young people are forcing us to act but it is only right that we do so with the utmost urgency."

**** it, buy a cliff top house and the insurance to rebuild it or dont!
 
Loads of now cliff top properties all over the UK coastline doing the same shuffle!
Especially in the south east, soft rock strata and part of the UK that's sinking the fastest. That one is natural progress and well known, and limited in what councils can do, they can slow it down but can't stop it

The one in Wales is reclaimed land where the council can't be arrsed to maintain flood defences because of the cost, I'm not it would be inevitable as they seem to have taken the worst case examples of sea level rises as something that will happen as the excuse to do it

The solution is simples.

England is sinking because it’s settling after being upthrust by miles thick ice on Scotland during at the end of the ice age melting.

Bury Scotland in gigatonnes of rubbish.

Just get on the carbon capture bandwagon. It will work, and not bankrupt you. The Paris accord is just not socially feasible. Asking people to shoot themselves in the dick, never works in the long run.

Read somewhere that if you take the entire existence of the earth as a 24 hour period to put it into perspective, starting at midnight, life has only been around the last half hour or so and man the last couple of seconds leading up to midnight again.

We're geologically insignificant and probably an aberration.
 
Climate change is real FFS! Some entire countries about to disappear soon! Submerged!

And the changing and wildly varying weather patterns over the last few years/ decades and all the data is not just BS.

Sure, the earth evolves and man made difference sometimes may not seem obvious, but it is! Yes, we are not going to die tomorrow, but at the same time to ignore it is ridiculous!
