Whatever happened to ''Global Warming'' it was all the rage a few years ago, not forgetting ''The Hole in Ozone Layer'' who, I often wonder, filled that in
Today's buzz word is ''Climate Change'' It has become a form of religion to many now that they have turned away from the church and woe betide anyone who questions these climate religious zealots, to them being in any way doubtful not to mention denying what they preach is tantamount to heresy........ but this fad will pass too in the fullness of time.
Anyone with a ounce of common sense knows that the very nature of climate is that it's continuously evolving and changing, it never ever stands still. Some small changes we may notice in our lifetime, but most take thousands of years. The great freeze now known as the 'Ice Age' did not happen overnight not did the great thaw that followed.....What caused this great freeze over 12,000 years ago and what caused it to gradually thaw ??? What caused the 'Little Ice Age' which lasted from 1350 to 1850 approx. The Little Ice Age' was preceded by the 'Medieval Warm Period'
Cause & effect ??
Planet earth is but a tiny speck amongst millions & trillions of planets, moons, suns etc. etc. Human activity on our planet has miniscule long term effect but our planet has within it the power to self destruct. Also there's always the remote possibility that another wayward planet or giant falling star could crash into us and wipe out life on earth as we know it or cause it to completely disintegrate.
As for the little ice age, check it out on this graph. Check out where we are now.
Your last analogy is like saying there's no point in giving up smoking because you could get hit by a car. The earth and people will survive climate change, but it will unnecessarily fúck things up along the way and make everything harder. And this thread is about turf, some people seem to think it's banned or something. It's not. Burn away. Just leave the tiny percentage of bogs alone that Ireland agreed (not the EU) to, because there's almost none left. It's an endangered ecosystem, it's nothing to do with carbon emissions.
