GW...nah..nothing to worry about

Across the Western United States, a summer of record-breaking drought, heat waves and megafires exacerbated by climate change is forcing millions of people to confront an inescapable string of disasters that challenge the future of growth.

Groundwater and streams vital both to farmers and cities are drying up. Fires devour houses being built deeper into wild regions and forests. Extreme heat makes working outdoors more dangerous and life without air-conditioning potentially deadly. While summer monsoon rains have brought some recent relief to the Southwest, 99.9 percent of Utah is locked in severe drought conditions and reservoirs are less than half full.

Here’s a question. What level of CO2 reduction is needed to make a significant impact on reversing the effects of climate change; when will we see the results; and what will they be?

Asia is definitely giving a lot these days in turns of being green, the biggest plastic polluter Indonesia right behind China. Imagine swimming down this river.

The Paris Climate Accord is nothing but a feel good thing to appease the hard-core greenies.

Well good to know that there is nothing that we can do.

Here’s another question … If the US cut it’s CO2 emissions to zero, what impact would it have on reducing global warming?

Not entirely. Not even the primary purpose. The Paris Accord was designed to make the US pay other countries to reduce their emissions of CO2 with no consequences if they fail to do so.

Maybe allowing a few more million illegals across the border can fix it.

That’s the thing about Climate Science, as far as I can see it has little to no predictive ability.

Doesn’t seem like there’s consistent worldwide concern does it?

Mexico too!

And we shouldn’t do anything until there is I guess.

So there is nothing that we can do about it.

What would you do?
