    We’ve been getting told all this stuff for about 30 years and nothing of significance has come to pass. If you understand the physics law of the Latent Heat of Evaporation you’ll understand that the earth will self regulate itself.
    Our actions in trying to influence a trace element of 400 parts per million in upper atmosphere are futile. Funny thing is water vapour is much more powerful greenhouse effect and we will be making more of that via hydrogen fuel cells lol

    The end or trusted information forever????

    I’m sure we’re all familiar here with this stuff but we’ll worth a watch, the technology is progressing at astonishing pace...

    Apparently living more than 1.6km from a supermarket is a problem...one of the interviewees is surprisingly obese for someone with poor access to food?

    Yes. Even business decisions are constrained by capitalism.

    It is a problem. Not everyone has the time to walk to the supermarket in between their 2 jobs, let alone carry food for a family home. Shame they're tarred with the same brush that the lazy arse is tarred with, coz they are a part of that demographic... and the employment stats would likely support that there are more doing the hard yards than aren't, and that they could benefit better food being more local in an already jammed day, and yet............... Sounds like you've a little white privilege in you son.
    I didn't think!!! I experimented!!!

    30 years is less than a heartbeat in the life of a planet.The earth may well self-regulate, but it will not necessarily regulate to the very narrow band of temperature and other criteria that humans and other life require for survival.

    With regard to your "400 parts per million" - it's not the number, its the rate of change. And it is changing quite a lot - The concentration of carbon dioxide in Earth’s atmosphere is currently at nearly 412 parts per million (ppm) and rising. This represents a 47 percent increase since the beginning of the Industrial Age, when the concentration was near 280 ppm, and an 11 percent increase since 2000, when it was near 370 ppm. Crisp points out that scientists know the increases in carbon dioxide are caused primarily by human activities because carbon produced by burning fossil fuels has a different ratio of heavy-to-light carbon atoms, so it leaves a distinct “fingerprint” that instruments can measure. A relative decline in the amount of heavy carbon-13 isotopes in the atmosphere points to fossil fuel sources. Burning fossil fuels also depletes oxygen and lowers the ratio of oxygen to nitrogen in the atmosphere. https://climate.nasa.gov/news/2915/t...arbon-dioxide/
    it's not a bad thing till you throw a KLR into the mix.

    Only if you have taken extreme measures to avoid watchng or reading any news. That's clearly nonsense. Almost as nonsensical as the Trumpist politician in the US that thinks rising sea levels will be solved simply by lifting all of the boats out of the water.
