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.

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.

Yes, unhealthy processed and refined foods are the reason our health is plummeting. In your graphic it says to eat less from the processed and animal food groups because it leads to disease and more from whole foods from the plant food group because it contributes to good health. So a healthy vegetarian lifestyle is optimal not only for the environment but also your health. A healthier plant-based meat alternative is not the bad guy here lol 

You should note that it says in your graphic that it counts almonds in candy bars in the plant food section, that's hardly a healthy snack. So really it's 6% of whole plant foods in that section.

The goal I'm suggesting is not to totally eliminate real meat from your diet but to not eat it as crazily as we have, sort of a "partial vegetarianism" with more whole foods from plants. I, for one, am a fan of tofu burgers lmao when I was a pescatarian for about 5 years I'd eat them occasionally and have grown a taste for them.

Keep it going to 1000ppm. The net effects of human Co2 have been positive so far. The future predictions are just scare mongering. More plant food, more greening, higher crop yields, less poverty in developing countries. Fossil fuels are still great.

If it turns out Co2 is actually bad, the go nuclear. It's the only current option that can sustain base load power.

Totally "elevated" by a few feet, a true believer Obama is.

Why did Al Gore sell his TV network for $100M personal gain to Qatar, the richest per-capita oil nation the world?

Does he not believe in fighting fossil fuel power?

Anyway, tax the poor some more, Al needs a bigger private jet.

It is elevated by 10,59 feet,will take a thousand years at the rate sea levels currently rise

No catastrophe then? Oceans have been rising for the last 10K years since the interglacial period began.

Sea levels at Stockholm, home of famous Greta with no childhood. Seems we have declining sea levels there (or elevating tectonic plates).

Sea levels at Venice, Italy. There was a slow rise in the first half of the 20th century, but it seems to have mostly stalled when CO2 began to rise in the 60s.

It is funny that you give us proof that he is prepared for rising sea levels because that house is build on elevated ground.

Mansions of the rich on higher ground,yeah you sure did show us being wrong.

Even the most extreme sea level rise predictions show that Obama wouldn't be affected this century.  

Al Gore didn't get money from taxes.  



Sigh, knew before I clicked on the thread there'd be be someone bashing and blatantly misrepresenting Greta Thunburg. Real class act picking on a teenage girl.

God forbid a member of the younger generation wants to inherit a world that hasn't been totally trashed. As someone who works with her generation for a living I sure am glad they're the future.

She's ridiculous. She's not above any criticism and just a pawn.

The world will be fine in her lifetime.

Hmmmm, a teenage girl simply asking that we listen to the science and plan our future responsibly or grown adults vehemently bashing her for doing so? Frankly, it's not the former I find ridiculous.



Sigh, should've known better than to post in a climate change thread in my condition; jumping ship here before the toxicity goes through the roof. Won't be reading any more so anyone quoting me will be wasting their time.



Focus on ocean pollution, promote nuclear energy, and get China and India on board.



Nuclear energy is no reasonable alternative as long as the waste problem is not solved yet. We still need to find a way to safely dispose the nuclear waste.
