Re: Climate Change

I am yet to see any respect for nature in one of the 'pristine/remote/unspoilt' "paradise communities" we have visited. They are not about 'respect' out there, they are about 'use'. The good news is, unlike us, they use only as much as they can eat.

I think all this talk about conservation and respect for the world is yet another Western fad. And, unfortunately, a fad only.

There's definitely a hangover from the period of anthropological references to the "noble savage". I agree with you about that, but your second point is what's really the heart of the matter: much of the world consumes very little because they have very little with which to consume. They live in the shadow of our enormous first-world footprint.

Not as well as the people who think printing money and borrowing to pay for a third or our budget is a good idea.

So, I'm not sure that's a really great test of how good an idea is.

Re: Climate Change

Humans are just doing what all species do. They (we) exploit our ecosystems to the maximum possible. Expansion halts when external barriers are encountered: predators, competition by other species, pollution, or resource limitation. When this happens population comes into balance with these barriers. So far humanity has found a way to blow past all barriers, and to exploit virtually the entire biosphere, but we're now encountering limits that may not be surmountable.

So humans are just behaving like all other animals. The fascinating question is whether homo sapiens can step outside of Nature and become the most unnatural species this planet has ever produced. We need to proactively limit our own exploitation. No species has ever done this. Can we?

I think it is possible. We have some things which may be a first on this planet. We can see into the future and predict what the outcome of present-day activies will be. AND we have the capacity to care about other species. These two facts may make us pretty special, if not unique.

... but so far the signs are not good. So far we are behaving just like all the rest. We are rapidly eating our resources and crapping in our nests.

In the most of the Western world contraception is quite popular and cheap, if not also free (with a bit of effort)........doesn't mean everyone uses it at the right time , but also helps account for the less than replacement level of births (albeit the primary cause is no longer any economic need and actually an economic disincentive to procreate).............It is either that or religion has caught on in a big way - and that ain't happened in practice, no matter what "morals" folks may say should be followed .

Quite correct. Notice how the biggest alleged temperature increase is in Siberia. That is because
1. Nobody believes anything the Russians say.
2. Even if they are to be believed there are very few weather stations in Siberia so figures are hard to verify or dispute.

The data used to allege huge temperature rises in Siberia is all fake.

Fake data was used in New Zealand too.

The people who sit on such committees of inquiry can always be relied upon to deliver the " right " opinion - that's why they get the job.

It's all fakery set up to impress the gullible.

Ok, sorry, now it's perfectly clear what we're dealing with.

Re: Climate Change

Age old axiom "Follow the money." If you want to see how thin the veneer of civilization is, throw a hand full of dollar bills on the sidewalk and see what happens.
