Thus all green efforts are lost. Really, anybody who thinks different is delusional. Nor is the trend positive, it's very much negative, with China bringing a new coal plant online every 5 days and India every 8 days.

In fact China now burns 3X the coal as does the USA. I do not begrudge them their Middle Class splendor, I just wish they would be greener about it. When it comes to green energy, they talk more than they do. So does the USA.

No. Human nature is not going to change. We will try to extract the maximum possible under all circumstances. It doesn't mean we shouldn't try to become GREEN. However, I see that nations cannot come to sensible strategies to preserve what wildernesses that they already have, and I can only be pessimistic at our outcome.

Don’t know how you got that from my post, I said no such thing.

There are things to do that are beneficial on various levels. But they require careful consideration.

If you thought February was cold you’re right, not to worry doomers “the heat went into the ocean” again.

Averaged separately, the global land-only surface temperature was the 15th highest on record for February at 1.04°C (1.87°F) above the 20th century average.

Meanwhile, the global ocean-only surface temperature was 0.70°C (1.26°F) above average and the second warmest February since global records began in 1880. This value is 0.11°C (0.20°F) less than the record-warm February set in 2016.

The most notable cool temperature departures from average were present across parts of the Northern Hemisphere, specifically across Canada and the contiguous U.S. as well as parts of central Asia, where temperatures were 3.0°C (5.4°F) below average or cooler.

Obama got the Chinese to say their CO2 emissions will peak in the year 2030, just 11 years from now. No doubt their emissions will be be 4-6x times greater then the US by then and perhaps even more. But not to worry-----China is allowed to emit all the CO2 they want under the Paris Climate Accords.

Sing it, Barack

Only this unique hybrid -

because he has known

the stigma

of the half-cast,

the unease

the apprehension

the stoicism

of the african,

the ambiguity

of the caucasian,

the tension

of the afro american -

can envision

the sovereignty

can own that song

"Has Global Warming Peaked?" is a very GOOD question.

Does one become so inured to something that one is expecting in all it's horrors, that in the end, one just welcomes it in unassumingly, just like a long expected guest finally arriving?

I think that many of us here are studying the hell out of it until we accept it.

However, it seems beyond our comprehension what the results will actually be so, maybe, it hasn't quite peaked, in our consciousness, yet, and maybe never will, for us.

The problem is that it is, at this stage, coming on too slowly for most developed country residents to care. Some people somewhere are already feeling the pain, but smarmy, smug and deluded 1st world sheeple are content for now. They will only react when the pain is too much and by then it will be way too late to even mitigate the impacts. The frog in the pot is a good visual representation of this. Even if it is apocryphal.

This is from 2014 so a bit dated but the speaker is still around.
It should cause a little discussion here.
