And wait until your perfect solution comes along ? ! Your going to be waiting a long long time ! Like forever ! by Feb 25
You speak of solutions in absolute terms. Solutions are never that literal they are temporary .Until some better comes along . The alternative is to do nothing ! To say we take too much and should stop that , is unrealistic . People by nature are over consumers . I'm sure you'll find it in your own life . Just as the rest of us . Utopian view can be just as dangerous as any misguided view . Just because something sounds right doesn't mean it is going to be implemented by all or the majority . Waiting for the perfect answer usually leads to disaster ! More so then trying out the imperfect , temporary " solution "
You sound like you really don't understand how the underground storage works ? The way it's supposed to work is CO2 is bonded in the rock !
Plants can take in CO2 then release oxygen ! The forests and plants have been exterminated at such a high rate they can't suck up enough of the CO2 being produced .
So your solution is to slap hands and say “Bad Bad don't do that ! “ ? by Feb 25
What are saying ? We need to kill off a few billion ? ;-) by Feb 25
Pumping co2 underground is not a solution. All it does is delay, go to the source of the problem, its the only way to solve anything. Big Corp. are a problem but working within the laws they help create thru Gov't. The entire system is the problem and needs to be corrected to the benefit of the people and the environment. Mega-sized corp. need to knocked down a peg and a real solution to solving some of the problems plaguing mankind need to be found. The price to working for a solution now is considerably less than in 50 years.There is enough on this planet for us, we just need to stop taking more than we need. by Feb 25
There is another factor to consider: I am heavily into futurism and life extentinsionism. It is not at all far fetched that people living today can realistically live to 1000. That is great and I sure am not in the mood to die early- I still have lots that I want out of life- but then the question does come up: without population controls then what happens? The world is already strained at 7 billion and they estimate that( without radical changes) 9 is the maximum. The math on this one becomes very problematic. by Feb 25
Never understimate the power of ignorance and hatred. Here we have millions of uneducated angry people who's sole source of information are talkshows and talk radio designed to give them their angry political religion. by Feb 21
