it is also scientifically proven that increased C02 leads to bigger healthier plant life.
inceased c02 could extend the areas where crops can be grown and would lead to bigger healthier crops
increased c02 could end world hunger
just throwing that out there
earth is too dynamic for us to understand much less try and fuck with. any actions we take in the name of environmentalism will most likely come back to bite us in the ass years down the road.
plus it won't even matter because pretty soon technology will change
this quote from a speech given by Michael Crichton is the bomb
Let's think back to people in 1900 in, say, New York. If they worried
about people in 2000, what would they worry about? Probably: Where
would people get enough horses? And what would they do about all the
horseshit? Horse pollution was bad in 1900, think how much worse it
would be a century later, with so many more people riding horses?
But of course, within a few years, nobody rode horses except for sport.
And in 2000, France was getting 80% its power from an energy source
that was unknown in 1900. Germany, Switzerland, Belgium and Japan were
getting more than 30% from this source, unknown in 1900. Remember,
people in 1900 didn't know what an atom was. They didn't know its
structure. They also didn't know what a radio was, or an airport, or a
movie, or a television, or a computer, or a cell phone, or a jet, an
antibiotic, a rocket, a satellite, an MRI, ICU, IUD, IBM, IRA, ERA,
EEG, EPA, IRS, DOD, PCP, HTML, internet. interferon, instant replay,
remote sensing, remote control, speed dialing, gene therapy, gene
splicing, genes, spot welding, heat-seeking, bipolar, prozac, leotards,
lap dancing, email, tape recorder, CDs, airbags, plastic explosive,
plastic, robots, cars, liposuction, transduction, superconduction, dish
antennas, step aerobics, smoothies, twelve-step, ultrasound, nylon,
rayon, teflon, fiber optics, carpal tunnel, laser surgery, laparoscopy,
corneal transplant, kidney transplant, AIDS… None of this would have
meant anything to a person in the year 1900. They wouldn't know what
you are talking about.
Now. You tell me you can predict the world of 2100. Tell me it's even
worth thinking about. Our models just carry the present into the
future. They're bound to be wrong.
