Comments on: Human “Message from the North” to climate negotiators http://blogs.reuters.com/environment/2009/06/02/human-message-from-the-north-to-climate-negotiators/ Global environmental challenges Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:14:55 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: A Concerned Citizen http://blogs.reuters.com/environment/2009/06/02/human-message-from-the-north-to-climate-negotiators/comment-page-1/#comment-339910 Tue, 16 Jun 2009 19:05:30 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/environment/?p=13034#comment-339910 I have to agree with Anubis in that we must be educated in order to start debating,especially when it comes to nature versus anthropogenic because it is! an academic! or(hereditary native knowledge)exercise.
So if any of those “fear & loathings” clueless propagandists try to write anymore,please educate them, for they know not what they do or say.
“Save the Arctic” includes Humans,Caribou,Ecology Rivers,Tundra,Permafrost,Oxygen making trees and a plethora of others just to name a few!
America needs to wake up to the reality in which conservation and a whole new life style should be embraced while we all develop alternative! energy sources.
a concerned Citizen!

Mark in Las Vegas, I’m going to call you “Fear and Loathing” (to many psychotropics). You are right about one thing, the Earth has been changing over hundreds of millions of years. Global warming is part of those cycles. It always leads to mass extinctions.

Scientists the 1870s had theorized and held great concern as to whether or not man was warming the atmosphere with all the coal being burned due to the industrial revolution. It was not until the ground breaking work of WWII naval veteran Charles Revelle (Scripps Institute of Oceanography) did the scientific community get the facts in the late 50s and early 60s. Climate change indeed was occurring. The data is presented to Congress annually ever since.

To debate natural versus anthropogenic is an academic exercise. If we produce hot house gases we should limit them in order to mitigate the coming change. Conservation and a whole new life style should be embraced while we develop alternative energy sources.

Inertia, finger pointing, carbon economics and hallowed economic growth are not a recipe for success, “green” business opportunities notwithstanding.

These people are clueless about the impacts of new drilling technology. No longer do we have to move drill rigs we use directional drilling. These oil rigs do not impinge or affect caribou. Like Greenpeace protesting oil tankers in diesel burning boats. Is all a big crock of doodoo. Regardless of what we do, our climated is changing, has changed over the last millenia or two, and will continue to change. The earth is a dynamic system. We need to get beyond the common held misconception that we are creating the abundance of green housed gases, and realize that these gases are created in response to larger scale solar cycles. We cannot control the change, just like we cannot control nature. The bugs were here long before dinosaur and man walked the earth and will be here long after we have gone, as will carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, methane and a plethora of others.

We are too addicted to oil and gas, and the artic is the last “untapped” reserve.
