Paris World Climate Summit: 11/30/2015 11:12:26

This sunday some 150 world leaders including President Xi Jinping (China) and President Barack Obama (US) and Vladimir Putin (Russia) joined U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to Paris hoping to seal an historic climate accord today in a city still rattled by terror attacks two weeks ago.




What is your opinion about climate change and ecology?

I think nothing will happen a la most climate change conferences. I believe it exists, but I honestly wouldn't fix it if it got in the way of my life. I'm fine with solar panels, and renewables are a f***ing brilliant idea.

Even if it is real (too much out there to be sure) it is a natural occurrence and it isn't worth destroying the economy for.

"If historical patterns repeat themselves, within about 2,000 years. But that's an extremely big "if." Over the past several million years, Earth has spent most of its time sheathed in ice. But about every 100,000 years, the planet thaws. These warm spells, called interglacial periods, usually last between 15,000 and 20,000 years. We've been enjoying our current interglacial period for about 18,000 years-giving us roughly 2,000 to go before the next deep freeze."

We should bury our knowledge. We will die naturally with or without our intervention. And space colonization is too far fetched.

Even if we take Climate skeptics at face value and agree that humans are not the primary cause for global climate change. Can climate skeptics deny the fact that humans are the primary force behind deforestation, increasing air and water pollution, and the increase in the background extinction rate for plants, mammals, invertebrates, reptiles, birds and amphibians? The issue is not if climate change is happening and how we should fix it. The bigger question is how do individual countries address the state of their environment? Increased conservation, reduction in red meat livestock production (accounts for 18% of all carbon pollution), and better regulation of toxic industries. I don't believe the answer is globalist internationalist protocols written by elected leaders which force green infrastructure and technology (which is often times more expensive) down the throat of its citizens.

Humans are destroyers of the land and everything we touch inevitably leads to the destruction of God's creation. Hinduism believes in the equality of all life...from the unborn infant to the smallest mosquito. Politicians and environmentalists dictate that we need to do A, buy B, and stop making C in order to stop global climate change and "save the world". I first ask them to stop eating meat (a real respect for nature would be shown by doing this) and personally do all the things they are proposing - drive hybrid or electric cars, power your house by solar panels, recycle, etc.

The forests do not do much for us. The ocean is the actual CO2 filter. Oh, but the ocean is in a 100x shittier situation.

Rainforests hold the most biodiversity on the planet and are being destroyed at an alarming rate. I'm not talking about protecting forests on the basis of a selfish economic benefit they provide humans. I'm talking about protecting forests on the basis that it is a moral imperative to protect the equality of life. I suggest you read Pope Francis' encyclical Laudato Si.

Pollution is a huge problem, but is completely different from climate change. It is definitely something we should address more, and I wish that politicians talked about it rather than climate change.
