its inevitable now
I don't understand the debate between people who believe in Global warming and those who don't. And when I say that, I mean, I don't understand the science behind it all. I'm not a global warming denier nor am I one of those people screaming from the hilltops. I saw a truck in the city I live in with massive exhaust pipes spewing up from the bed of the truck with plumes of black smoke and his bumper sticker said, "Global Warmer." Shit like that pisses me off. You're just asking for trouble.
So I guess I'm asking questions since I don't understand. Earth has always went through periods of warming and cooling correct? Long before man came along and starting fucking shit up, wasn't the Earth getting hotter and colder?
Why is the right so hell bent on denying global warming is a problem and why is the left so hell bent on saying man is the primary problem? These are legitimate questions I have because again, I'm not quite sure I understand it all.
There's an XKCD comic that can put it into perspective and explain it better than I could ever hope to.
I will find it and link it.

Im not being a dick, but just to make a point; do you understand how antibiotics work by destroying the walls of cells? or do you trust the doctors who spent years going to school?
the lay person understanding the science shouldnt be a per-requisite for its validity
I read a lot about it, but I dont pretend to understand all of the data 100%, but either the scientists are right or are united in lying to all of us
yes, but not at the rate its happening now. plus we can go through the geologic record and measure the atmosphere to see what the conditions where during those times of climate shifting, and the correlation of our involvement is undeniable
because the companies that make a lot of money adding to the problem give money to the right and not the left
of course many in 'the right' believe Jesus was a white man, so their opinion is only worth so much anyways. yes they have the power, but their opinions dont change the facts
most people dont keep up with scientific advancements
let alone something as complex as measuring the evolution of the gases in our atmosphere
but Ill trust the scientists who are in unison in this decision over someone paid by Exxon or some other company that scientists shouldnt be trusted
"The planets doing fine. We're killing ourselves. Just ask those people in Pompeii if they feel like a threat to the planet." George Carlin
that was in 79 AD
back then we were no threat to Earth
humans are like the parent who left their kid in a car on a hot day
except everyone on Earth is the kid in the car
We are currently causing an extinction event with biodiversity on Earth, which is a problem for humans because we're not separated from the ecosystem as a whole.
That's fact. Where philosophy comes into play is I tend to think it's within our biology to do this, to teraform, to expend, unlock, and release stored energy in the Earth even if it ends up kill off humanity.
It's not unlike a digestive process. For millions of years there's been trapped energy in the Earth. Life, humans specifically, are a way to release it, to continue to foster entropy and reach a lower rest state.
That's not a fact, just something I'm personally fine with. Humans are what the environment produced. We're a slow asteroid if you think about it.
if you go back to the first entry on this thread, you'll see this article.
