are you denying climate change luisport? Quoting: Anonymous Coward 6259543
no, but i think it's changing to an ice age... at least it seams too. What do you think?
i just questioned because I lurk here alot and you seem pretty straight on economic matters so I would have been surprised if you denied climate change when you seem rational in other matters.
As for the climate I don't think we are headed toward an Ice Age neccesarily. I mean the earth goes through that cycle but we are talking tens of thousands of years. Right now we are dealing with climate change toward warming due to pumping carbon into the atmosphere.
With things like positive feedback loops, the permafrost melting, methane plumes in the ocean and increasingly bad droughts forecast to start any time I don't see how we could be headed for another ice age.
Don't get me wrong we will have worse winters and worse winter storms but that's due to things like the ice cap melts changing the flow of global sea currents effecting things like the jet stream and global weather patterns.
The major problem from all of this isn't the climate itself but the effect it will have on ecosystems, seed germination, crops and arable land. Basically food riots and supply disruptions will be the first major sign.
I don't really see any way out of this at this point, and when someone denies it's happening altogether they need to be educated.
