    Default Global warming: what did we do?

    By now, many of us are already aware that global warming has increased over the past few years.

    Several experts claim that we have contributed to global warming. I found a video (from London Real) that talks more about this:

    That video is a bad one since it talks about the issue in a very simplistic way and disturbs the debate by making straw man arguments.


    Here is what this guy also says in this interview. Not exactly a science talk.

    I think you mean climate change, not global warming.

    I don't believe its entirely the result of mankind, or that we can stop it. Even if everyone in Western civilization went green, the 3rd world does not have that capability, and contrubutes to the majority of carbon emmissions. There is no way to reverse the situation, unless we force China and India to stop emmissions as well, since China emmits double of what USA does, and USA has been cutting a LOT, regardless of whos in power. But I doubt they will actually contribute, no matter what agreement they are in.

    Climate change has also happened many times in the past as well. So while mankind might have an affect on it, I still think it will happen regardless. Also good to note CO2 is actually the least concerning air pollutant. Other gasses that are unregulated are more harmful. Deforestation is what causes desertification and lack of rain as well, which can in turn affect ocean currents with a temperature change. Which can be devistating for the global ecosystem.

    I never linked this: it is the forum on which this topic is discussed on more advanced level.

    Nah, listening was never too much of a problem. Which was in the doing department.
