Yesterday, I found this: http://www.rollingst...w-math-20120719

 

It sums up some numbers about the climate change:

  • 2°C: The maximal rise in temperature for most politicians. When it will become warmer than that, no costs should be spared to reverse it. Note than we are now at 0.8°C rise already. Also note that most scientists think that a raise of more than 1°C is risky.
  • 500 gigaton CO2: The maximal CO2 we can pollute before we reach the 2°C milestone.
  • 2500 gigaton CO2: The amount of CO2 that will be produced if all fossil fuels that are now planned and ready to be dug up will be burned. (this is about trillions of dollars.)

​In other words: the climate is basically f*****, despite all our good intentions.

 

My question to you guys: does anybody know a plan B?

 

 

 

EDIT: wrote mega instead of giga.

Plan B: Stop electing brain dead politicians to lead our country and put someone who knows what they're doing in power. But of course, that will never happen.

How about exploding half of our nuclear arms within the stratosphere! That would block some of the solar flex from making it to the surface=a long term cooling of the planet. ;)

Yes, but then a huge amount of nuclear radiation would rain down on the world.

If something I say sounds like trolling/being stupid/offensive, please forgive me. I'm bad with people.
