It was a fair point with the example of the doctors and cancer. But allow me ask a question; If one sees 100 doctors and 97 of the doctors say you will die from cancer in a month, but 3 of them say they can get rid of it and save your life and works; are the 97 doctors incompetent? (you don't have to answer, more for the sake of trying to string the argument together)
I think that claim false; scientists agree there is "global climate change" and I agree. But the assertion of "global warming" is false, which I believe is more of a political argument. It first was known as "global warming", which was proven wrong and later found out the results were manipulated for political reasons. The earth does change its climate often due to changing of the poles, the sun, volcanic activity, the gravitational pull of the moon, the changing of the earth's rotation and axis and many other variables. To say that stopping all the cars on earth will play a roll in stopping "climate change" is, as I've been lead to believe, a ridiculous notion. We can't stop what the earth is going to do naturally. You are right in the since that we don't have the technology yet to manipulate how the earth works, which I believe that technology will not happen
Sorry, that should have read "Only fools ignore evidence..."
Yes, as research shows evidence, scientists change their models to reflect reality. That is not a sign that science cannot be trusted. Our lyrics fools ignore evidence because it doesn't agree with their opinion. Scientists used to think light traveled instantly, as they learned more that belief changed since they determined it did not. That is not a weakness of science, it is a strength. If you visited 100 doctors and 97 of them told you that you had cancer, would you ignore them?
As to whether we can change it, by changing our reliance on fossil fuels we could change the speed of the effects. To reverse it we would need new technology for removing the gasses from the atmosphere, which does not yet exist. The technology is theoretically possible, but we have not yet worked out how.
No, it's already been proven that the earth does this on its own without human interaction. We can't stop mother nature from happening. Dave, that's false; almost all scientist have changed their models to fit their argument, you can't rely on that.
if we make cars run on alternative energy we could slow it more
It is happening, and we can't really just undo it. We can't stop it either, because of cars and everything else. we can slow it down, but definitely not get rid of it.
AstroSpace and Alex,
Look into research on global warming. 97% of climate scientists agree that global warming is happening and it is due to our actions. Just Google it and you will see multiple studies and reports. Saying that since things have happened before we can't possibly be responsible for it happening now is absurd. Many people have been killed in car accidents in the past. That doesn't mean you cannot be responsible if you push someone in front of a bus. We have mountains of evidence and the experts agree that we are causing it. What evidence do you have that makes you believe that you know better than nearly every scientist in the world?
but it is our fault for creating greenhouse gasses with our fossil fuel and warming our planet
You can't change what isn't your fault.
dead animal bones of certain animals in certain areas and fossils of things that humans had to help them survive
because dead animal bones tell me whether the earth was on course or not
we have scientific evidence from fossils, environmental scars from the time
are you sure? is anyone sure of that? no.
it didn't the ice age was a cold time caused by the eat the tilted access going off course
no, I don't believe we have an thing to do with global warming or climate change, as it has happened before in history with no cars. (ice age, medieval Warm Period)
ok so you'd rather let our great grandchildren die from heat?
% green after being made. but they are costly.
how is elictricity made? by burning fossil fuels. it is not some magic. same for batteries because they are stored electricity. Solar panels I like because they are 100
elictricity. batteries. solar power. undiscovered sciences.
what alternative enery are you thinking of?
to stop warming we need to make cars use alternative energy and limit pollution by factories
plant trees and use paper. are you aware of what paper is made of? also why plant trees?
it can be changed if we start using clean energy
It's a myth.
ever evidence of global warming has come from a inaccurate computer model
we can stop right now and minimize what we have already started
global warming most likely isn't real
We can stop it, or least slow it down, by reducing the amount of greenhouse gases
into the atmosphere.
with extra care to the environment.
No, we can’t change global warming. This earth is already old and at the end there’ll be a risky global warming. What we have to do is to prevent it by planting some trees around us and using recycled materials like paper bag. Avoid a plastic bag since it’s not long lasting use, it’ll be hard to be recycled. It needs a hundred years to destroy it. Promote a healthy life style by going green.
If we just stopped doing everything that causes it. Instead of buying some fake magic machine that's supposed to stop it. But then again, how are you gonna get to work or visit your relatives?
All you need to do is lease a used Tesla.
You don't have to be a millionaire to buy a Tesla anymore.
You can now buy a used 2010 Tesla directly from the manufacturer for way less than the current price tag of more than $100,000
