This is a discussion on Do you believe in man made climate change (global warming)? within the Off Topic & Humor Discussion forums, part of the The Back Porch category; 13ppm each year for the last 100 years. Well that sounds manageable and I know how we can do it but I'm guessing a lot ...
I am liberal and believe in man made climate change.
I am liberal and do NOT believe in man made climate change.
I am conservative and believe in man made climate change.
I am conservative and do NOT believe in man made climate change.
I have no opinion on this topic.
13ppm each year for the last 100 years. Well that sounds manageable and I know how we can do it but I'm guessing a lot of people aren't going to like it. Cut down all the mature, old growth trees. Mature trees do not absorb CO2 at the rate a growing young tree does so by getting rid of the old stock and planting new young trees we'll save the planet!
Break out the Homelites boys, we've got a planet to save!

I'm writing this from a chemical plant in China. Lol yes. Now the trick is not to politicize that fact as a weapon against business.
I voted other because I suspect the definition of liberal or conservative has become to confining. No I don't believe in man made climate change amounting to much. Our previous president just bought ocean front property projected to be underwater in twenty years. No problem with insurance I guess.
I went up to the top of Mt Hebo some years ago. To the west an ocean, to the east trees as far I could see. The thing is, it's one gigantic tree farm. A mind blower to consider almost all the old forest have been cut down in this country. Now consider what the rest of the world has lost as far as old growth forest over the centuries.
They paved paradise and put up a parking lot.
Biology favors the plants and trees when CO2 is in the air. They take and use it as we all know. So the man-made issues are not the pollution exactly but the extermination of the areas on earth that are big enough to swallow all that carbon and keep the atmosphere somewhat balanced; those areas being the rain-forests and other large arboreal reserves. Loosing these reserves IS mans doing so man IS directly involved with climate change, to a degree.
History shows that we dumped a boatload more emissions into the air at the turn of the 20th century than we do these days, however. Steel mills, coking factories, textile mills, all belched visible emissions, which in many cases turned into acid rain, which ironically was fairly good for agriculture.So what we contribute today is likely much different (less than) than in yesteryear's, except now we have millions of square miles of lost forests.
My disclaimer here is that I am NOT a scientist but I do have an unused 40 plus year old associates degree in horticulture/biology. I remember just enough of things to get myself into trouble. This might be one of those times.
No. I do not believe in it. If the climate hysterics had been correct, the Obamas' new beachfront property would have already been underwater. I do believe in climate change, just not man induced climate change.

I believe consciousness is tied very closely to the the natural state of affairs so far as reality goes.
Sea levels are in sync with atmospheric CO2 and methane - the greenhouse gas scenario.
Our future is doomed - every great sage has known this. We should concentrate on the consciousness part of being, like good and well trained and happy dogs . . .
There is a solution but we are not Jedi... not yet.
We have deep thinkers and stinkers in this group that could come up with a solution...
