The best measure to fight climate change.

What do you feel would be the best single measure to help fight the man-made crisis of climate change. 
Add New Argument

The best way to fight climate change is for everyone to stay home so that I can go places and do things without the usual traffic problems, congestion etc.

Thank you'all in advance.

That seems very selfish, but sound thinking nonetheless. Always place America and yourself first.

What greater cause could there be than me?

Focusing on greener solutions and renewable energy to start. I know biomass from algae is something to look at, lowering the cost of energy saving solutions and allowing a better tax credit for homes and business that use solar power/wind power/green roof systems as well as water conservation efforts would help a great deal as well. All of those, if pressed, could be combined to one answer, better education.

Agreed Mint tea. Just one element to be added to your recipe is acceptance. There are still many, even at this late stage, who refuse to accept that the disaster which is climate change is a man-made phenomenon.

I believe that would fall under better education as well. The more people actually understand the impact they have the better they can accept and change.

So without fossil fuel will the biomass from algae produce the TOT to fly jets and helicopters.

A global programme of planting millions/billions of trees would slow up the hitherto, seemingly irreversible disastros march of climate change.

The banning of the non-essential use of plastics such as water bottles and the over use of plastic packaging would also make a significant contribution.

We're at war with the petrochemical giant corporations and their;- profits at any cost policy.

How many more trees will the world's most eminent scientists accept as a significant contribution to the Climate Chaos you believe. Will the bicycles you want in the inner city roll on a rubber wheel or a wood wheel.

I thought the Rain Forest fires were going to be the end of the earth. What happened with all that hysterical fake news.

The forest fires contribute significantly to climate change but as the solution(s) to this crisis is a ''thinking man's game there are those who try to find answers to the problems rather than just repeatedly quoting what they are.

The best method to fight climate change is to vote against Donald Trump. After that we just have to work together. :-)

Why is it Democrats want Climate Migrants in the United States.

Did the Democrats not say that humans were the reason for the Climate Crisis you Democrats claim there is.

CNN reports :

Italian council is flooded immediately after rejecting measures on climate change.

It is amazing how quickly Climate Chaos kicked in after reacting to an Italian Council.

Climate Chaos is watching.

The best measure to fight climate change.

Hello S:

You don't fight climate change.. You fight oil depletion.. They're inextricably linked.. Solve one, and you solve the other..

Truly, if you understand the globe, you understand that oil is finite. Clearly, if you continue to take something out of it, that something will run out.. That's the problem we need to solve.

Fusion and/or space based solar power collection are the only two reasonable alternatives.. Technically speaking, they're both just a touch out of reach.. That said, would investing everything into a Manhattan Project style of endeavor put us over the top?? I dunno. We invented fission when we put our collective minds to it. Can we do it again? I dunno..

What I do know is that we have nothing to lose.. Clearly, if we keep going the way we are, we'll either drown from rising oceans, or have to start walking because we ran out of gas.. Neither outcome is appealing..

Democrats are really unaware of what their government is doing as you prove.

"The Strategic Petroleum Reserve is an emergency fuel storage of petroleum maintained underground in Louisiana and Texas by the United States Department of Energy. It is the largest emergency supply in the world, with the capacity to hold up to 727 million barrels."

Has CNN explained to you what the Strategic Petroleum Reserve is.

The best measure to fight climate change, which has been happening since the beginning of time, is to ignore the partisan sky is falling fossil fuel haters.

I've been listening to these same political environmentalists preaching how we were having Global cooling, and when it never happened, Global warming, and when that did not happen.... "CLIMATE CHANGE!!!!

The words "Climate Change" covers it all after every other failed prediction.

The Oceans are not rising anywhere near the rates these doomsday Sayers told us it would.

They screamed we would Coastal homes sitting in water by this time! That we would have record numbers of Hurricanes on the East coast, when in fact we had record FEW hurricanes on the East coast.

Once you ignore the Al Gores and other radical fossil fuel haters, maybe the sane people in our world can come together with common sense answers to obvious things we can all agree on.

When you have Left wing activists trying to shut down fossil fuels, radically increasing our electricity costs, cutting millions of jobs, etc., there will be instant opposition rather than compromise.

Until nations like China, Russia and many others take the same hits to their fossil fuel industry, so we can all be working on an even playing field, there will be no compromise.

Those on the Left are such activists when it comes to any subject, our nation is in a constant state of bitter partisan politics. These radicals have absolutely nothing good to say about Trump, who has done many great things for our economy, our never ending illegal immigration problems, getting Mexico to patrol their own borders, China's trade policies, ISIS retaliation, bringing jobs back to America, getting NATO to pay more for military protection, etc.

You would think he is Hitler to listen to these Socialistic Democrats. He is the first President I ever saw whose main goal is to accomplish his promises made to the American people. HOW REFRESHING IS THAT?

The reasons these Democrats constantly seek political warfare when it comes to any issue, comes down to one word.... politics!

The Democrat Party has become the Party of identity politics, and will always pander to their LGBT, Feminist, Pro abortion, Environmental, groups. They will never compromise as witnessed with their radical support of No Restriction abortions. They could not even bring themselves to compromise with the GOP's 20 week limit abortion bill (even when the Bill still allowed extreme case late term abortions).

FIVE MONTHS WAS STILL NOT ENOUGH TIME FOR THESE RADICALS TO ABORT BABIES!

It's all politics, and a person must see through that extreme political grandstanding before anything will ever get done.

I will give you some more information that most Americans are ignorant to.

https://www.gao.gov/keyissues/oilandnaturalgas/issue_summary

The Department of the Interior oversees oil and natural gas production on federal lands and waters—providing access to these resources while ensuring their safe and responsible development. Federal oil and gas resources provide an important source of energy for the United States; create jobs in the oil and gas industry; and generate billions of dollars annually in revenues that are shared between federal, state, and tribal governments. Interior reported collecting over $55 billion from fiscal years 2011 through 2016 from royalties and other payments. This makes oil and gas resources one of the federal government’s largest sources of nontax revenue. Moreover, the April 2010 explosion onboard the Deepwater Horizon and subsequent oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico highlighted the importance of Interior’s management of permitting and inspection processes to ensure operational and environmental safety.

Do you mean that those in charge of our fossil fuels are not rich hateful people trying to destroy the world for money?

Forget all the White Noise that the Democrats talk.

Here is fact that not one Democrat for that matter any Republican knows.

"The Strategic Petroleum Reserve is an emergency fuel storage of petroleum maintained underground in Louisiana and Texas by the United States Department of Energy. It is the largest emergency supply in the world, with the capacity to hold up to 727 million barrels."

The climate has always changed, but always within the scope of the ability of creatures to evolve with it. We are causing it to change outside that scope.

The rest of this bullshit is bullshit.

Animals have been going extinct since the beginning of time. It's people who have tried to change nature and prevent the natural process of extinction.

Mankind is a natural part of nature and our impact will have an impact on which animals survive.

If animals can not adapt to climate change, they will go extinct.

A drastic plan to reduce population by educating young people about the harmful effects -- financially, environmentally -- of overpopulation; giving free condoms, UID's, subdermal implants, emergency contraceptive pills etc to women all over the world; robust and comprehensive sex education in schools; a complete halt in the usage of fossil fuels for nonessential industries, and the implementation of an intensive deescalation in the production of any and all things which use fossil fuels, and heavy investment in environmentally friendly replacements; cutting oil subsidies for multinational energy companies; renationalizing domestic energy companies; a ban on plastic; a drastic redistribution of wealth to bring people out of poverty and allow them the freedom to choose the energy mediums they use; a complete reshaping of world governments to legislate and protect against policies that corrupt the climate agenda; prison time for people who are found funding anti-climate science; prison for politicians who lie to the populace about policy; a complete withdrawal of all private oil companies from countries where those companies have vested interests in distorting or disrupting the politics of those nations; the dissolving of the World Bank and the recentralization of all national banks; ultimately the complete destruction of predatory capitalism.

How much does North Sea oil contribute to UK GDP?

In 2017, capital investment in the UK offshore oil and gas industry was £5.6 billion.

Brit your economy does not need the North Sea oil and gas production.
