Contenders for what? I do not support kooks who don’t agree with nuclear power.
Yea... the green new deal is adapting.
Yea... That's leaving out huge swathes of context. Let's start adding some...
What was the human population back when the earth was warmer?
What would the earth look like now if it was warmer?
How does that affect life and specifically human life?
The byproducts of nuclear energy are pretty nasty stuff that I in no way believe can remain secured anywhere on earth long enough to become inert.
Uninhabitable has a meaning. Stop lobbing lies. No one...NO ONE is dumb enough to believe your lies (which are nothing but a Trojan Horse for commie agenda, as always).
I do not agree that money is greater than life on Earth. I am actually pro-life, not just someone who uses the rhetoric of life to make poor people suffer so the rich can get richer.
Ha ha, I’m not the one saying that we should do nothing to prevent the avoidable extinction of humanity because no one cares if everyone in the world lives or dies.
Already linked many times. Read the book.
The issue is not just the average temperature, but the rate of change of that average, the concurrent changes in atmospheric composition and climate (which depend on that rate of change and its causes), and the speed with which gene pools adapted to the present climate can rapidly adapt to a changing one. Most of the mass extinctions in Earth’s history were caused by rapid warming events of the sort occurring now.
Direct exposure to the radioactive water at Fukushima raised a person’s lifetime risk of cancer by about 1/3. The most radioactive (and dangerous) isotopes are also the ones that decay most rapidly. Within a matter of decades, even daily exposure to large masses of the highest-level nuclear waste does not appreciably increase lifetime cancer risk over natural background radiation from the Earth and sun.
I don't have a dog in the climate change fight. I'm just a long time visitor here on this planet. Good luck, suckers I'll be in an alternate universe making mint julep's when the shit goes down here.
What caused these extinctions? Human activity?
Exactly my point.
No one said “do nothing”.
...the lies just keep piling up.
Because previous extinctions were caused by something other than human activity means that we should cavalierly rush toward an extinction on similar scale caused by human activity?
I understood the op to be arguing against any mitigation efforts.
Your understanding frequently is at odds with reality.
