When are we going to realize that we cannot combat Global Warming until we stop destroying the environment to build bigger and bigger cities?

And manufacturing plants, and iPhone factories, and burning down forests for more space to put all this crap... the world was perfect only a few hundred years ago, what happened to it?

    Scientists used to call global warming,well, global warming, which a lot of people didn't believe in it because,why are some places getting colder if there is global warming? So instead of calling it global warming, they have named it climate change. and it is a very real thing. If we don't take action now, by the time it reaches the year 2050, we won't be able to fix it. This is not something to be ignored. We can't keep thinking that the next person or someone else will fix it, because if everyone has this mindset, nothing is done. The truth is that the government wouldn't do much to combat climate change because it would not affect them(since most of them are pretty old and would most likely die before climate change actually affects us in a deadly way), if they can keep earning money, even while destroying the earth, they would continue to do it. We have to be the change

    Global warming is a disproven theory. It is fake news. How narcissistic are we to think we can alter the weather. Only Jesus can change the weather. To think otherwise is heresy.

    Global warming includes sea level rise. Right?

    I guess Obama doesn't believe in any of it.

    So , what Global Warming? Obama doesn't think it exists. At this point it doesn't matter what he says, I can see what he did.

    INDUSTRIAL CIVILIZATION will finish, and it will have been a singular pulse in the history of Earthly life. Humans might become extinct. If humans continue to exist, their culture will be that of a Stone Age impoverished by the way their near ancestors, while adjusting to reduced circumstances, depleted the fertility of farm soils and hunted to extinction nearly all edible species of plant and animal.

    “Star Trek” is the future that might have happened, if the hominid population had been limited to its best representatives (i.e., if all the others had been culled out of the breeding stock), and if the political objectives of their leaders had been the right ones. Instead of material gain and individual happiness, the objectives should have been racial betterment and greatness.

    We blew it. And there is no second chance. The political mess cannot be straightened out before the accessible remainder of the Earth’s fossil fuel deposits has been used up. In my opinion, the outcome of the Second World War cost the Life of Earth, in whatever form it might have taken, perhaps at least 99% of its potential run through this universe.

    When fossil fuels are depleted, as eventually they must be, the illusion will be dispelled: the lumberjack will again know himself stronger than the owner of the bulldozer, the engineer will again know that he is smarter than the corporate manager who once bossed him, and the banker will understand, at long last, that he is worthless. When fossil fuels are depleted, nature will present mankind with the bill for his accumulation of genetic defects, which temporarily had been put on the credit card of technology, and many hereditary lines will suddenly discover that they are not really fit to live in this world.

    We need drastic, systemic, fundamental changes to multiple levels of the American economy. The kind of changes that will bankrupt some industries and supercharge others. Without this, humanity will soon reach a "day-zero" where millions, if not TENS of millions will die in famines, droughts and pandemics.

    Millions of people realise that, which is why there are protests going on today over the brazilian forsets burning The problem as always is the politicians who care more about money and votes that about saving the planet.

    And a few thousand years ago it was a ball of ice. The climate has always been changing, if it ever quits changing then that's when I'll start worrying.
