What do you think should be done about climate change?

Forums - General Discussion - What do you think should be done about climate change?

Ignoring the discussion about whether climate change is real or caused by humans, there's a lot of discussion about what should be done about it.  There is some contention about whether a lot of solutions will actually work, whether it's due to cost or whether the solution contributes to the problem by producing carbon dioxide during the creation before being green.  For example, an electric car will eventually be less harmful to the environment, but to produce them is actually worse.

I don't know enough about these issues to say what is the best thing to do myself, but I was curious what others thought about what should be done.  Are there any "good enough" solutions to climate change?

Seems the only solution is force everybody on the planet to be vegetarian, rely entirely on renewable energy and most importantly get rid of straws.

First of all, kill everyone who actively works against efforts to slow it. It'll count as self defense because they obviously try to kill us.

2nd step, create vegan meat that doesn't taste terrible.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

First thing to be done is acknowledge the Science and ignore the politics.. our World leaders haven't even done that much, it's over really we just don't know it yet

Any moderate measure will fail, this is an emergency situation we are failing to respond to.. even now most reading this will think "meh, yeah right, pull the other one"

People that can't attack the Science attack this child instead, we are f**ked

Some solutions are already slowly happening. If you've noticed, there's a trend going on with restaurants, fast-food places, companies, etc. that deal with meat in that they're heavily pushing meat alternatives. I'm seeing a lot specifically for burgers nowadays i.e. the Impossible Whopper, it's at a point where is beginning to pick up steam in the mainstream. It'll take a while but this move to choosing meat alternatives more often and occasionally having real meat is what will help us out a lot with climate change. The future is partial vegetarianism people.

Very truthfull and unpopular opinion,we are with too many to keep eating meat like crazy.

If only they could eat more refined food then now...

Most americans are near 70% plant-based or refined food already and their health continues to plummet.

Also i remember reading that 80% of vegetarians last only a year or so on the diet. So good luck on that one.



In the wilderness we go alone with our new knowledge and strength.

The world's major political entities (US, China, EU, Japan, India, AU/CA, etc.) need to commit *trillions* of dollars each (less for smaller countries, obviously), on a yearly basis, for the next 20 years in order to get humanity closer to a carbon-neutral state. By some estimates we have less than a decade to reverse our carbon emissions. We may, indeed, already be out of time to stop some extreme warming. We're getting to the point where the positive feedback loop is coming into effect: the world is warming, so more ice and snow melts in the arctic, causing more gas to be release, ,which warms the Earth, which melts more stuff, and so on. Beyond that, a warmer planet means more water vapor in the air, and guess what, *water vapor is also a greenhouse gas*. We need a global war-economy to be mobilized against climate change, and it needs to happen right now.



Instead of the UN or various militaries, we should be putting trillions into collaborative science efforts like Sustainable Earth or Space stuff.

50 years ago the US (NASA) got to the moon with only a $45b (adjusted) budget, today it is around $20b. If NASA or a sustainable Earth association got to $45b or even 80-100, significant things could happen.

A reduction of the military budget from $693b to $613b would be impactful but quite small. And it would save the environment with the budget cuts to the significantly oil using military vehicles.



Every once in a while a clown like Greta Thunberg emerges touting developing countries(60%+ of the world) to stop trying to get developed and shut down their industries, go back to stone age. Such countries obviously give them the middle finger and move on.

Only science, by developing new materials and new forms of energy production can do something, not kids or burocrats.
