Bummer: “Climate Change” Has Reached The Point Of No Return, But Here’s What You Can Do(?)

Once again we are treated to an apocalyptic fable on Hotcoldwetdry. Here’s the actual headline from One Green Planet

Scientists Say Climate Change Has Reached the ‘Point of No Return’ – 5 Things You Can Do Today

If we’ve reached the point of no return, why bother doing anything?

Rolling Stone recently released a sobering article on the state of the planet in regards to climate change. It would appear that quite a few signs are supporting the conclusion that climate change is approaching, or, has even passed the “point of no return.”

OK, so, it seems that the headline might be a bit, shall we see, over-the-top. We’ll skip the standard and obligatory doomsaying, and go straight to what you can do!

1. Push For A Planet That Is Free From Fossil Fuels

Fossil fuel use is contributing massively to the imbalance of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere and oceans. In addition to finding your own ways to reduce reliance on fossil fuels at home (mass transit, more efficient personal vehicles, walking or biking, etc), you can also pressure major fossil fuel users like the United States and China to take a drastic stance in reducing their fossil fuel output. A carbon tax in these two countries alone could stand to have dramatic positive impacts, and may encourage other countries to take a similar stance.

I’m actually impressed that there was even a hint at pushing Warmists to stop using fossil fuels. Notice, though, that paragraph doesn’t quite match lead.

2. Plant A Tree!

And give your own use of fossil fuels!

3. Boost The Organic and Local Food In Your Life

Make sure you walk, don’t take a fossil fueled vehicle. Heck, you can’t even bike, because fossil fuels are used for lubrication. And no sneakers, because they have fossil fuels.

4. Trim Your Waste-Line

Garbage in landfills releases methane which is a greenhouse gas. With a little forethought and effort, you can eliminate some of those emissions. First, let less waste enter your life. Aim for less packaging where you can, and use reusable water bottles and shopping bags. Then address the waste you can’t avoid. Direct organic waste to a composting system, whether it is municipal or one you keep at home. Make sure anything and everything that can be recycled ends up in the recycling bin.

They take wise environmental issues, along with personal health, and stick them under the banner of their idiotic cult.

5. Most Importantly … Choose More Plant-Based Foods

Stop eating meat, Cultists! And stop using fossil fuels! And live like it’s 1399.

Think any Warmists will listen? Or just expect Other People to Do This?

    Every suggestion was to make themselves and their readers more responsible + pushing for ending fossil fuel use.

    And you mock them because?

  2. Blick says:

    There are a several other things that can be done to reduce carbon.
    Use less air conditioning and heating by setting thermostat higher in summer and lower in winter.
    Wear natural fibers, cotton, linen and wool. (and leather instead of plastic belts, shoes, etc.) Layers in winter and less in summer.
    Less fashion shopping, more utility clothing.
    Buy at second hand and thrift stores.
    Repair instead of replace items.
    Walk everywhere.
    Eat less = less waste.
    Drink air temp water only and not flavors, juices, soft drinks, beer, wine or alcohol, coffee or tea. Nothing hot or cold.
    Eat more fresh fruit and veggies and less processed foods.
    Do not eat imported foods or drinks.
    Do not buy imported products. buy local, regional or national where possible.
    Learn natural remedies and depend less on over the counter remedies or pharmaceuticals.
    Eliminate makeup, scents and hair products; go natural as much as possible.
    Eliminate vacations and travel. Staycations conserve fuel and energy.
    Eliminate business travel and use electronic communications more.
    If you have space, garden and preserve food.
    There are lots of things to do personally to reduce energy usage.

    I’d say that if CO2 levels were actually a bad problem that planting trees are a good idea as trees are the biggest CO2 absorbers.

    Of course as soon as wood is burned it releases that CO2 back into the atmosphere at a much greater scale than any other product like oil, gas or coal.

    Technically fireplaces and camping are worse if CO2 levels are a problem, not cars.

    But again, if CO2 levels were actually a real threat than atmosphere scrubbing reactors can easily break down the CO2 molecule into methane and water as I have explained before and NASA has plenty on experience in this field as they are always working out fresh water and air systems for astronauts in space shuttles, space stations and Mars.

    But to expect the population of the world to end their CO2 producing enterprises is unrealistic because it would mean that a majority of the Earth’s citizens would have to die and the rest would have to live like third worlders. Pretty tough sell really.

    I know there are some elitists who prefer us “useless eaters” to die off, but their plans for eugenics ended with the failure of the Nazi party. The Georgia guidestones might as well have a swastica engraved on them because that is the one world government preferred by the Nazi’s of WWII.

    CO2 is still beneficial to plant growth and there are no REAL plans to tackle the CO2 levels without some unrealistic demand on plummeting the world into darkness.

    Based on this truth, I believe this end of world CO2 scare is merely a means to an end that the average citizen would never willingly go along with unless under some threat of life.

    The elites are after yours and my property and liberties. This is a wonderful vehicle to gain that upper hand over a fearful and ignorant populace.

    If you think I’m a nut job then you should explain the maintenance, updating and surveillance of those wonderful Georgia Guidestones. The nut jobs are the ones putting that crap up in the first place….

    And of course the anti CO2 nut jobs as well…

    “Pushing for ending fossil fuel use…you mock them because?” Because there’s absolutely no need to end fossil fuel use, and the poorer countries, especially, will never end them. But this time we really mean it-it’s the point of no return…until we figure out we screwed up, again, and we set another point of no return.

  5. Dana says:

    Well, Jeffrey ought to absolutely love me — no, not that way, you dirty minded people! — ’cause we’ve planted eight trees on our property (though one didn’t survive) since we bought the place in 2002.

    Of course, I didn’t do it because I was trying to be more “green,” or combat global warming climate change; I did it because the yard was kind of bland.

    Not that it matters anyway, since we’ve passed the point of no return, so I won’t feel guilty at all when I fire up my 2010 Ford F-150 with a 4.6 liter V-8 engine to go to work tomorrow morning.

  6. Blick says:

    Jeffery, instead of being Snarky, where is your list of things people can do personally to reduce carbon emissions. Be positive for a change and be a problem solver.

  7. Jeffery says:

    if CO2 levels were actually a real threat than atmosphere scrubbing reactors can easily break down the CO2 molecule into methane and water as I have explained before and NASA has plenty on experience in this field as they are always working out fresh water and air systems for astronauts in space shuttles, space stations and Mars.

    I’ve asked before, but likely missed the answer. Do you have any information of the capacity of the scrubbing reactors? Do we need to store the methane (since it’s even more potent a GHG than CO2)?

    I’m suggesting there might be other reasons we haven’t solved the global warming problem with scrubbing reactors other than communistic liberals wanting to take over the world.

    But to expect the population of the world to end their CO2 producing enterprises is unrealistic because it would mean that a majority of the Earth’s citizens would have to die and the rest would have to live like third worlders.

    The proposal is to gradually transition from fossil fuels to renewables. The idea is to REPLACE fossil fuels with other energy sources, not merely to eliminate fossil fuels. But you know that.

    We will run out of fossil fuels eventually – estimated at perhaps 100 years or so. What then? Back to wood and peat?

  8. Jeffery says:

    Blick,

    The tone of the post – of every Teach post – is snarky.

    He spends a great deal of time and energy mocking people who are trying to help – people recommending the same actions he supports! – but he mocks them for their motivation – that the Earth is warming.

  9. Blick says:

    Jeffery, I posted a list of suggestions. Where are yours? You prove my point; you can only be snarky and cannot rise above a snarky response. He’s snarky, so can I — grow up. You forget nuclear as a energy source. France solved their nuclear waste problem, so can we.

  10. Jeffery says:

    Blick,

    I can’t pretend to know what’s best for you.

    You have a fine list.

    Live simply, live small – is my motto.

    But according to Mr. Teach and his adherents, why conserve energy at all? “Global warming is a hoax.” “CO2 is plant food.” “Reducing your carbon footprint means living like a 3rd worlder.”

    Tell me. Why do you live simply?
