Changing Climate

We are all feeling the effect of the changing climate no matter how many people deny about it. We can't do so much as individuals because big companies are the ones that are affecting the climate. All we can do is to try to adjust to the weather that we experience every day. How do you cope with this problem?

I don't see it as a problem. Weather patterns have been changing longer than we have been here, and will continue to change after our time is up. I also don't see corporations changing the patterns so much as to make a discernible difference. We all have an effect on the patterns of course because we are all part of the ecosystem, but I think people who believe that we make a life-altering difference are fairly egotistical.

The last sentence is a bold statement, my friend. We all have different beliefs and I'm only sharing what "I think" is true.

However, you got a point that our world has always been changing climate since who knows when. Still the question, how do we cope up with the changing climate regardless of the factors that are affecting the changing climate?

I tend to believe that our bodies can adapt to the changes the climate brings. Think about the extreme climates on the planet and the different cultures that live in them. Our bodies are more adaptable and resilient than I think we realize.

I concur. However, not everyone can adapt easily. We have to apply here the principle of the survival of the fittest.

Humans are good at adapting to different environments, that is why we survived the ice age wherein the dinosaurs did not.

I know I don't do enough to help with the problem. I recycle but still buy quite a bit of plastic, and my car is old with poor gas mileage.

Dust and Meerkat, so that means we don't do anything because our body will be the one that will adapt.

Boomer, doing something is better than doing nothing. I think if the governments will impose a high tariff on plastic materials, then the cost of those products will go high that people will be deterred in buying those things.

That's not a bad idea at all. Apply that to anything else that hurts the environment and the market will eventually decide the fate of those materials.

I think that we are feeling the effects of climate change and if we are to up our fight against it, then it has to be about managing carbon dioxide, which is in a way, the climate's worst enemy.

I'm thinking the opposite, jack. We are trying to reduce the CO2 emission wherein it is part of the environment in order for the plants to flourish. My take is that we should take care of our forests in order for them to convert the CO2 into O2. I'm actually worried about the deforestation being done in the Amazon forest.

Plastic bag bans and fees should be the rule in many more towns, cities, and businesses than what's taking place now. The bans and fees seem to be fairly effective where they're enforced, even though people may grumble at first.
