If it's WWII for the planet then we gots to get drastic

- End all immigration from 3rd world countries, because the change in lifestyle quadruples that individual's carbon footprint

- Nuke the urban population centers all over the world - they're not pulling their weight anyway

- No more kids for the next 10 years, and only limited reproduction after that. We can put the feminists in charge of that to make sure it happens. They're all about killing dem babies.

- Deport people from the 1st world countries to the 3rd world countries to reduce their carbon footprint - now accepting volunteers.

- no more travel

- no more entertainment - can't afford the expenditure of those resources

- no more animal protein or processed foods

- we need a Sharia Police to make sure everyone complies with the new religion on pain of stoning in the public square.


Gotta do it because it's an emergency and if we don't do it we're all gonna die.

It always trips me out when I meet Surfers who deny climate change.Now that I think about it, I dont really know anyone IRL that deny's it, just here on the erbb. This is our home - our oceans - I would think it'd be in our best interest to do whatever it would take to protect it.

Why is this even considered a political issue and what do the scientists have to gain? The current administration is going out its way to more or less accelerate the process.

So totally go ahead a run on a platform of taking away cars and heat to combat that


Notice too that that measily 17% is environment and climate COMBINED!


What's the difference between conservatives and liberals?

Conservatives get angry when you lie to them. Liberals get angry when you tell
them the truth.

What's unfortunate for you guys is that the 17% indicates how few people are sufficiently frightened to go to WWII over climate change. .

The 17% indicates to people who are highly motivated on the subject, which will obviously be a smaller subset of the people who take the "97% concensus" at their word.

I think it would be an interesting question to ask people if they'd be willing to pay $6/gallon for gas if it would reduce our exposure to climate change by, let's say, 20%. Not that paying $6/gallon would do anything of the sort, but just the act of quantifying their concerns would be interesting regardless of the answer.

Wouldn't you like to see a measure of how motivated people really are on the subject?

So I take it youre a GND aficionado

100% renewable fuel ( no nukes!) in 12 yrs

How do you do dat without taking everyones cars?

Most people buy a car every 10 yrs

You wont replace the fleet w/o confiscation

Heat: renewables have blackouts

Tell people in Chicago when its -20 that theres no heat that day because the wind dnt blow and the sun dnt shiiiine
