Basically we cannot fight climate change, it is already a fact and what we should do is not make it much worse and start prepare for the coming changes.

Careful there! you will have the climate change terrorists jumping all over you :wink:

Truth hurts :shock1:

". . . start prepare for the coming changes" like the Obama's did?

 

Don't know what they did but well, unless we want to be completely unprepared, it is good to start to think about how we can prepare ourselves in different ways so that it doesn't comes like a surprise and we say that "we didn't know it was gonna happen"

Living in an area with breezes in a dwelling that has windows or doors to allow a cross breeze helps immensely on air conditioning energy cost, hence carbon footprint.  

Ah the "cross breeze" fallacy rears its head! over 40 years in SEA and I have yet to experience this phenomenon! 

When I attempt to enact this dubious action all I succeed in doing is letting polluted air into the house, but when I close the insect screens they stop ~90% of the breeze on the rare days the wind blows, they do trap some of the particulates that are consistently present in the air here though. :omfg:

Haha, a little exaggerated there. The end is far from near, I think, but anyone that still denies climate change must be living under a stone. Ignorance might be a bliss sometimes but it's not gonna help anyone else than yourself, so yeah, if you want to be an egoist go ahead.

But what did the dinosaurs do wrong.....?

 

I believe Earth was once covered in ice too, seems to me Earth just does it's thing. It also seems man has only been doing it's thing on a bigger scale for a couple of hundred years that folk are worried about, before that it was just basic living...

 

The oil, coal, gas age will end in a similar time scale, during that time man must progress or go back to camp fires, perhaps nuclear fusion will be sorted before that....  😊

No one is denying that climate changes as it always has and always will. They stopped calling it global warming when the globe didn't get hotter, but they should have thought of some other term to describe man made climate change.

Anyway, so what? Nothing is going to happen as the politicians don't believe it no matter what they say. None of them have stopped flying, and none ride a horse to work.

It's ironic, but the people that will probably survive are the "nutters" that live in self sufficient communities and have lots of guns to kill the city dwellers looking to steal their food after it all goes bad.

For sure, the ones with the cash, after all, our planet and the humans on it are only interested in cash, the way we live revolves around cash.

 

The basics revolve around cash, a roof over our head and health care, both are now about making money out of both...Sad really....

Actually no. The ones with lots of cash will starve like all the rest- can't eat money, which will be worthless when it really hits the fan.

My life has prepared me to survive, but sadly I'm too old to do so now, so I'll be starving too.

 

For a group that will survive, look no further than the Mormons. Their faith requires them to store a year's worth of food, water etc. However, they will only survive if they have sufficient weapons to drive away the marauders, and if they have the will to use them.

 

Think it can't happen? Think about what would happen if trucks couldn't bring food into a big city like London or NY. No one grows food in the city anymore, and how many days supply are in supermarkets? If the stoppage happened for a month or more= no food for love nor money.
