Saw a video talking about new facilities in testing that can pull the carbon out of the air. One of the issues is funding its upkeep. Who’s going to pay for it?
Said it before and I’ll continue to say it. So much time has been wasted on arguing who’s to blame for the Earths warming. Notice all climate change deniers always devolve into saying its part of Earths natural process. Which means they agree the Earths getting warmer. So why continue to argue with them since they already agree.
The time is better spent figuring out how to reverse it. Because even if humans completely stopped existing or went all carbon neutral. The Earth still warms on its own.
Perhaps the Paris Agreement should involve prizes for designs that are both cheaply run and built that can remove more carbon than it costs to produce the system.
@Seohn, the carbon collected from those facilities can be inserted into the ground of farms. So they could generate some revenue from that.
@Seohn, trying to reverse earth's natural climate change could be pretty dangerous. We don't want to mess with the natural order of the planet we live on. Reversing the effect humans had on climate change would be more what we need to focus on. Overall I agree with you though this is something we need to address and work towards.
@Seohn, I'm not saying that humans aren't contributing to climate change, but the earth is always changing. Pretty sure we didn't have any kind of technology when the last ice age happened
@Not him again, technically we're still in an ice age. The Earth has been in an ice age for the last 14 million years with periods of glaciation and interglaciation. We're currently in an interglaciation period. A lot of people worry about the ice caps melting but the majority of Earth's history had no ice caps.
@Seohn, I would agree except that the people who say that it is all part of the earths natural process don’t usually think we need to do anything and therefore will not contribute to helping fix our planet and/or will actively fight against doing anything. I commend you for the effort to stop fighting amongst ourselves and actually do something because I agree that we need to start doing shjt, I mean we needed to start doing shjt 40 years ago but “the second best time to start is now” and whatnot.
@Seohn, figuring out who’s responsible for making things worse and punishing them is kinda important but you’re right the fact is the damage is already done and it’s only getting worse so the best course of action is to just fix the problem but the problem is that the ppl in charge of fixing it don’t give a fvck about fixing it cause a lot of ppl still believe that it’s a myth and we can just do whatever we want and there’ll be no consequences
@Seohn, It is part of the Earth's natural process and humans don't have much impact on the changing climate. It will change no matter what we do. What we can focus on is all the environmental issues we have that we are directly causing whether it's trash in our water or cutting down all the trees.
That's the issue I have with climate change alarmists is they focus on all the ways they can "combat" the climate with ridiculous spending on green energy that won't do much.
The Paris agreement is awful because there is no accountability it's just give money to poor countries who set there own goals and if they are not met oh well. China the number offender doesn't even have to do anything for many years.
Trashing our environment will cause our extinction long before climate change ever will.
@Seohn, the real argument isn’t who’s fault or if it exists. It’s whether it’s significant enough to actually take drastic measures. The US is currently #1 in the amount of emissions reduced, yet people still say the US doesn’t care. Meanwhile China still puts out the most. I would happily fund a project to stop their emissions before taking on any policies over here that are economically detrimental.
@Seohn, (joke) if the problem is excess carbon, we should all just have 8 kids, that way all that carbon will be safely locked away in their bodies...
forests in Siberia and around the arctic circle is causing the ground to retain more heat and thus the soil looses permafrost, which causes all the fossils in the ground to slowly become exposed. This has caused erosion of these fossils to become somewhat of a spectator sport, with how fast it is occurring. Exposing these will also release a geological time bomb of carbon into the atmosphere that will significantly boost the amount of carbon buildup in the atmosphere. The solution has been, thus far, to re-introduce ice age-like animals back into the environment and destroy all the forests in the area. They are currently working on genetically engineering cold-resistant elephants, in MIT, to act as modern day mammoths to further the goal of retaining the permafrost in this area.

TL:DR fvck the trees, save the permafrost
Except that we actually just recently passed the point where it wouldn’t matter how many trees we planted, we need to invest in oxygen plants(factories) extremist action against coal and normal power production, go back to living the way we did before industrial revolution, kill 2/5ths on the population and stop driving any vehicle anywhere no matter the economic, or social implications(no food to 1/3 of the country no medicine anywhere, no import or export of any goods etc) and then MAYBE MAYBE things will start to get better
@Not A Wolf, We need a price is right send off but for humans. Help control the human population. Don’t forget to have your kid sterilized or Vasectomized.
It’s almost as if we should look at billions of years of evolution for solutions to our problems
Good thing we have more trees than we've ever had in humanity's existence 🤙
Who would have thought getting rid of the biggest oxygen producers and the putting them back would have drastic consiquences
