Thread: Climate Change

  1. #1

    Climate Change

    What are your thoughts on Global Warming? When will it start to tangibly inconvenience us? When do you think global initiatives to combat it will happen? Will it be too late?

    If you live in Florida, you'd already be inconvenienced. It was like 80+ F today in Jacksonville.

    I'd say without their captains the Whitebeards would be slightly stronger than the Red-Hairs and with their captains they'd be significantly stronger.

    It's pretty obvious no Emperor was a real threat to Whitebeard. He just had too much power and influence.

    Raigou apparently can't even destroy an island, which Whitebeard can do easily.

    Obviously it was because of Whitebeard, but the crew even without the captain is still highly exceptional. If you take away the captains, the Whitebeard's would beat any Emperor crew decisively.

    As a species, I certainly think we only do things when it's already too late.

    Climate change is real imo, but developed countries should take steps in minimizing their emissions first instead of policing Africa to do it when they barely got any development or industries to show for it.

    Well, listen.

    The debate is over.

    Many African countries have loads of industry, but like China and India, it's outdated and causes a bunch of greenhouse gas emissions.

    It effects more than temperature/whether though

    I'm expecting a change in Ocean's ecosystems which will lead to less fish due to increasing ocean acidity

    Florida's average climate has become a lot warmer in the past 3 years.

    I really don't think you can compare Africa's emissions to the US or China. In the end it's developed countries who have to take up the cross of reducing greenhouse gases first, because with industrialization, pollution is inevitable, and these developing countries can't develop without undergoing industrialization.

    What are your thoughts on Global Warming? It will destroy us all
    When will it start to tangibly inconvenience us? It already has
    When do you think global initiatives to combat it will happen? This already exist. See Paris agreement on climate change.
    Will it be too late?It's already too late. But that doesn't mean we stop trying.

    The Paris agreement does not include the very large industrial polluters China and India. I mean Global.

    I will do fine either way.
    The real world is cold! The real world doesn't care about spirit! You want to be a hero? Then play the part and die like every other Huntsman in history! As for me, I'll do what I do best: lie, steal, cheat and survive!

    who's not aware of the circumstances and results of global warming? and everyone wanna change it, but no one wanna contribute to that change... In that case, it's the governments that are to blame for rather not enforcing the change on people.

    There are a decent number of people that deny it altogether.

    why are you absolutely sure that it will be 'tangibly inconvenience' one day though?
    yes, the factors contributing to global warming is increasing by the second, but also the researchs for combating the issue are running non-stop.
    Fossil fuels are scarce, do you think that the human race will one day not use transport for example? No, its just that at that day we will come up with another means to run cars..

    Sea levels have fluctuated before, there is evidence the water level was lower centuries ago, buildings used to be nearer the water line, and temperature was warm enough in roman days that england did have grapes.

    Nothing suggest to me this isn't natural variation and cyclical in nature. There's always been fluctuation. And most of those predictions have been over-exaggerated.

    And it used to be global cooling, then it was warming.. now it's apparently cooling or just change.

    Thanks to Myst~

    AGW is accepted as a real phenomenon by virtually every scientific institution. Its in the same boat as Evolutionary Theory as far as validity goes.

    AGW?

    Scientists used to agree the earth was flat. Consensus means nothing.

    Thanks to Myst~
