Andrew i guess in the scheme of things the mix of delicate gases that we breathe have ratios, too much or too little of one causes an imbalance both to our wellbeing and our lifestyle.
My understanding is their has been a shift in where those actual gas concentrations now reside to say where they were 2 or 4 or 6 hundred years ago.
There is still the same amount of each gas, volumes haven't changed. The leaning of this thread was that Co2 was responsible for the climatic change that we are presently witnessing, i disagree with that as their's little scientific proof to back up the theory.
The planets climate has changed many times over history
kills and a warming prosper. Instantaneously now we know of weather events
or at least within the hour our reporting is immediate, the great unwashed blame every news event on 'CLIMATE CHANGE' however these events
Joe Average strongly believes that climate should be stable either cold, mediocre or hot, he will often choose where to live based on his belief of stability, in his choice he will look at bullshit weather mins and maxes for the area disregarding being in a cyclone belt.
But developers sell him land in historic flood plains, insurance
companies accepting the 1 in a 100 year event to base their actuarial calculations upon BUT along comes some event i.e. two storm cells meet up and bang Joe Average is treading water looking to blame someone.
Eventually the blame shifts to whats popular at the time, these days it's Co2, was Global warming after holes in our ozone and nuclear tests prior (always a 'control' boogeyman) my belief is it's simply a cycle of climate which equates to a period of life, a planet cycle.
Pick my words apart, say as you wish i ignore no one but i'm interested in opinion so i build my knowledge some more.
I have no degrees, more an artisan than a scholar i guess, BUT i know bullshit when i see it and if i doubt the depth
of that bullshit i try to find out more, disregarding that i appreciate your comments as you display a high degree of intelligence and tend to talk straight.
To set the record
straight on my
thoughts on our mutual predicament.
1) Climate is changing as it has before.
2) We are parasites in and by nature (pun intended).
3) The development of China
may well tip the balance of pollution to total disaster unless EV transport is taken up and pollution reduced heating
employed (can't see that happening).
4) Tourism both commercial
and private is killing the natural beauty of places, i suspect this would be the greatest threat to the subject matter of this thread.
5) Eco-tourism must grow but it's not cheap
and once again by nature humans demand cheap
6)Fossil fuels will continue to be burnt, gas is way better BUT fracking will kill the water table by the very nature of the mechanics of extraction, my home town is installing 8 gas trains at present, i have experience knowledge here.
7)I believe climates largest driver is radiation in all forms from our sun.
8)A severe cooling
may well answer all the worlds pollution by lowering the population immensely, it's happened before and methinks it shall again.
One thing our modern civilisation has lost
is SURVIVAL INSTINCT should a cooling occur for say ten years (a mere fart compared to prior coolings) our modern knowledgable population will be decimated.
Andrew we depend on our life being delivered to our door, we work, we shop and we commute. We want warmth we flick a switch on the wall, we want knowledge we go to the airwaves. A severe climatic cooling stops all that instantly. Crops fail, power stops, transport stops, communication ceases. Our day to day becomes a search for warmth, shelter and food
. People expect others to provide their comfortable existence in return for the exchange of money
this will be our demise.
Critique me by all means, i'd like to have this discussion over a beer
in the cockpit
(home brewed) it's just my opinion and i have no degrees but i do have experience in life.
