Default Climate Change Might Be Good for Us?

Warmer and moister air ringing much of the planet – punctuated by droughts in other locales – is threatening the prime ingredients in many daily meals, including the maple syrup on your morning pancakes and the salmon on your evening grill as well as the wine in your glass and the chocolate on your dessert tray, according to four recent studies.

At the same time, an unappetizing bacterial outbreak in Florida citrus droves, largely affecting orange trees, is causing fruit to turn bitter. Elsewhere, unappealing fungi strains are curtailing certain coffee yields and devastating some banana plantations, researchers report.

“We are in the midst of dramatic assault on the security of the food supply,” said Dr. Robert S. Lawrence, director of the Center for a Livable Future, part of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. The group promotes ecological research into the nexus of diet, food production, environment and human health.

Climate change will most definately be good for the planet, not so much for the human race. I remember laughing when that guy from one of the Matrix movies, I forget which, said that human beings were a plague on the planet. The joke is on us now.

Well the change since the Late Pleistocene has been quite good.

I'd rather not see it's sequel.

Not really. It is going to lead to a mass scale raping of resources which is not only bad for humans, but bad for the planet too.

If what happened on Rapa Nui so long ago is any indication of what we can expect...

We are aleady raping resources on massive scales. The planet and mother nature will eventually kick us out and recover in a new way.

That was one arguement for slavery.

It was considered a divine right for white people to own black people.

As fast as possible. Never mind future generations. He put them here for us. For us to use use use as fast as we can pull it out of the Earth and into the air.

Do you think, maybe, that if a God did entrust us with the Earth's resources, He may desire us to display a certain degree of stewardship/responsible use?

You're kidding right? We do lots to set aside national parks etc etc so we won't use up the whole world. We also have done a great job protecting the beauty of our country. Sure we have blown it here and there, we have pulled a lot from the Earth, but i won't let liberals make me feel guilty for living life.

Anyone who argues there is no stewardship is lying. We do try and be responsible. What do you call the EPA and all the laws? not trying at all? What about Bush Clinton, Obama all setting aside new land for parks and monuments. Hell Bush created a huge one in hawaii and I am pretty sure Clinton did some big ones as well. I am all for that when the land is that special.

But Kid I support using money to clean places up. Just think what Obama could have cleaned up with the 100's of millions he wasted on solar energy companies that failed.

A lot of early car companies failed. Should we have given up on the automobile?

Maybe from an environmental standpoint, yes.

So are you speaking out in favor of the EPA? Or are you just using it now that it suits your argument?

I find it funny that two years ago global warming was a myth, a lie.
One year ago it was global cooling and the earth was cooling down.
Now its accepted as climate change.


By the time the political idiots start to think for themselves and not their parties and look at what science shows, it might be too late.

It will be good for the banksters who profit from a carbon tax.

And good for cockroaches.

There is good news: before the mass purgation (i.e., before we all die from radiation), ********** shills like W*gs will swing from their testicles.

Take it to the bank.

Yeah, but it wasn't funded by the government.....if people want to spend their money on trying to invent new sources of energy, feel free....quit using tax dollars to do so.

You're not much of a peace activist.

More like a pricktivist.

When was America at its apex, gaffe?

I know that truth doesn't matter any more, but the GAO report has stated that less then 5% of those investments are failures. From VC point of view that is outstanding risks analysis. Yes there has been some very widely reported public failures, but there is a very unreported stories about success.

That's not really a fair comparison. Large majorities of that federal "venture" capital went to huge market players like Ford, Nissan, and Georgia Power. Where the government made actual venture-type bets, they did pretty terribly.

Just pointing out the notion we as a human race don't do anything to protect the Earth is a joke. All over the world humans have set aside land not to rape. Sure we take a lot out of mother earth but its not a free for all.
