Is it too late for Europe and the World. There is fires everywhere.

    Does what we do even matter anymore? There are fires all over Europe a big one in Wellington London in the UK and even one here in Wicklow.

    So can the World be healed or is it all just too little to late now?

    What kind of World are we leaving for future generations?

    I for one am glad I lived my formative years in the 90s and 00s as it has all gone downhill since then.

    Live long and Prosper

    Peace and long life.

    It's in reference to Europe and America etc reducing every year their carbon footprint while the rest of the world, especially the above mentioned are surging ahead.

    Even when Europe get to her zero it will not compensate for the runaway carbon creation of the developing world.

    But that's because of India and China, mostly.

    This idea that irrelevant countries like Ireland or Switzerland or Norway or the UK adopting certain policies will help prevent the inevitable is absurd.

    Bhutan has zero carbon emissions, do you think the BRIC countries gave a damm?

    I wonder about this long held Ireland high temp record, how could it be true without our global warming to blame?

    I believe we have passed through a solar maximum ending circa 2008. We are supposedly now starting a period of reduced sun activity. I'm not taking about the 10 or 11 year cycles, more an overall reduction across those cycles that should have some effect on overall temps into the next few decades.

    Of course anything that can have a minor effect in terms of reducing temps is discounted yet anything that has a minor effect in pushing temps upwards is instantly regarded as an emergency.

    Temp records became kinda accurate in 1880 mostly from the UK.

    All I know is that it is too late for common sense to make a comeback.

    It's a hopeless situation, the corporate media has been very effective at sowing discord, as the comments will attest to.

    We have no future, be merciful and don't have children, I shudder to think of the future mine will have
