The reason I ask for a link to the graphic you posted is to confirm where you got it.

 

Don’t worry about the source giving me ‘cooties’, just be open about where you are getting the information you post.

That then becomes 'ripped memes' dunnit?

You go girl hold their feet to the fire make them face what’s happening so all of us can start making responsible changes and grow into a more sustainable world I’m proud of you kiddo!

And first of all make her shut up. 

Small point that needs clarifying. It was Greta's parents that filled her head with confusion, hate and panic, ergo they "stole her dreams". Textbook child abuse really. When she gets bored of this cl

Here's the original image you claimed you linked to:

I have never claimed to have linked to that image. I claimed to have referenced the data set on the page I linked to. NASA:a data set.

 

You're wrong again.

If I would have included the cooling my point would have been even stronger

It's amazing that after 12,000 years of recovering from an ice age that we are getting record temperatures eh?

At the rate it's happening, yes it is, if not amazing, impressive.

Had to check what that ERRST is, as I was wondering how many probes they got floating in the oceans. Extended Reconstructed Sea Surface Temperature (ERSST).

 

So what's the forecast for tomorrow's temp at the Mariana trench then?

Too many times I have posted real info from non main stream approved places and had the whole conversation shift to the source and not the info. It isn't worth my time to introduce that kind of distraction.

 

Then don’t rip content from pages you won’t provide an attributing link to.

 

Simples.

That you find your ideas at the fringes of the Internet you dare not let no to is no surprise.

Someone else who doesn’t understand the difference between something written in a graphic and a link to the source of the graphic.

Well, I guess I operate on a completely different level of understanding than what you do since I had no problem finding and reviewing the source as it was written in clear text.

Forget about climate change if it's too subtle for you. Concentrate on the attrition of the natural environment - habitat loss, species loss - and throw in quality of life loss, because nature is the touchstone of all meaning.

The on-going catastrophe of that is self-evident, and it's man-made.

Is that not enough for you to justify more prudent and less self-indulgent political/economic policies, which is all that is being asked?

It is indeed, except the emphasis is, IMO, on all the wrong things, like electric cars with polluting batteries- should be hydrogen technology, that will make car companies incredibly rich when everyone is forced to give up their fossil fuelled cars and buy new ones, and bird killing windmills when it should be on developing efficient nuclear or fusion power stations.

Far as tackling pollution- sod all except banning plastic bags in supermarkets, except for all the plastic bags they supply to put loose vegetable in, and all the plastic used to wrap everything.

I do try, but there is no getting around all the plastic waste I have after every supermarket visit.

So aside from bickering and finger-pointing, what is everyone doing to reduce their carbon footprint?

Well, the climate activists are doing an awful lot of air miles to contribute vast amounts of CO2 to the upper atmosphere, and apparently not a lot else.

Meanwhile millions of fossil fuelled cars are being bought and put on the roads, China builds more coal powered power stations, and cargo ship are burning fossil fuel bringing all those plastic goods to the consumers in the west- you know, plastic, it's made from oil.

Not a lot going on to prevent destruction of old growth forests in Sth America, Africa and Indonesia, which must be releasing millions of tonnes of carbon.

In even broader terms, the world has plenty of difficult problems that need addressing, yet everything stops while world "leaders" hang on every word from Greta Thunberg, who knows nothing about the climate, or economics, beyond that which she has been taught to repeat.

 

It's a sign of the idiotic times we live in that real problems such as malaria, TB, malnutrition, atmospheric pollution and so on, risk becoming sidelined, purely on the whim of an ignoramus.

Because nobody is working on these other problems or because you needed to pad out your ad hominem use of ‘ignoramus’.
