When it comes to the environment, I think you should worry more about China and India as well as the corporations that enable them than the current US government you happen to disagree with lol



I am currently sigless.

I know it's probably just a dream at this point, especially with idiotic decisions by, ahem, a certain Western superpower since 2016, but it's still a nice thought to have.

Are there ways, any at all, to reverse climate change? Would it help if we planted new forests, reduced our garbage output, used more renewable energy sources, invested further into water bottles and re-hydration stations, etc?

I try my hardest to help out, I'm even trying to use lights that are more energy efficient. What else can we do?

Nothing and just relax. Every winter are announced as exceptionnal, like summers.

If we have a too cold winter --> it is because of the climate change

If we have a too sweat winter --> it is because of the climate change

If we have a too cold summer --> it is because of the climate change

If we have a too warm summer --> it is because of the climate change

 

Believe me if you just stop to think about it you will have plenty of new freetime in your mind and less stress. We have no influence on the climate as individual citizens.

Yes I don't believe at all into global warming, like Trump.

Atmospheric Carbon is the primary regulator of Earth’s average temperature. Reforestation would allow more to be filtered out of the atmosphere, but emissions would still need to decrease to ensure a net loss of atmospheric carbon. Responsible leaders who accept the conclusions of peer-reviewed scientific papers as outlined in scientific literature will be necessary. The Left has a near-monopoly on the right people and the right ideas to do what needs to be done.

Get with the times. It was global cooling, but then it started warming. Then, it was global warming, but then we had a pause. Now, it's climate change. So no matter what it does, they are right and we need to give them tons of power and money to fix the problem. 



there is no simple answer to that due to just how many variables you have to account for. the most dumbed down answer i can give you is simply no. there is no amount of global effort that can be achieved to make the world the way it was even 10 or 20 years ago. species have gone extinct that previously had considerable impact on the environments they lived in. deforestation can never be undone due to the unbalance of the areas resources that was created as a result. and polar ice caps that have melted have no chance of refreezing.

but it is also important to realize that climate change and environmental destruction are two different things. we pollute the planet by covering it in our own waste, plastic garbage, and whatever else, and it is causing ocean life to suffer, and toxins that leak from the plastic will eventually poison affected environments and kill them. this could all be avoided if we stopped polluting and cleaned up our shit, it would just be very hard to do. climate change is simply a consequence of pollution that is causing climates and temperatures around the globe to change, which is already too late to try and stop, but it isnt 'necessarily' the worst thing ever. the earth will survive in whatever form if the temperature around the globe increases, although it would have higher water levels and species would evolve more to survive warmer climates. and again, thats not a bad thing in the long run, but the point of trying to prevent it is to so that we dont end up causing mass extinction of hundred of species. its all just to preserve the planet the way it is.

but the two have to come hand-in-hand. we need to clean up our shit to protect the environment, and we need to stop throwing gasses into the air to war up the planet any faster. and if we do that, we will survive, its just too late to go back to where we were 10 years ago

Volcanic ashes cool down the earth. A couple of nukes can set off the big one. Big problem, big solution!



There would be nothing more unnatural than reversing climate change.



It’s too late to prevent climate change. And there is no reversing it.

Problem with many is that when they see it is too late to prevent climate change, they go “it’s innevitable anyway” and do nothing.

But it is not too late to act and diminish its impact. Instead of doing nothing and keep worsening it as we do right now.
