21 July 2022: Climate Change

A presentation from Carl Nelson-Poteet.  

Bottom line up front: It’s real, it’s us, experts agree it’s bad, but there’s hope ...

  • Climate Change is real and human: the only debate is political
  • Climate Change is here now: it is actively hurting people here and abroad
  • Climate Change is not good: the small benefits are greatly outweighed by the costs
  • We get to decide how the story ends: mostly by voting and vocally supporting “green politicians” (and not the fake ones!)

There are notes embedded in the presentation, download it to see those notes.  On the request of several that could not attend, we recorded the presentation, click <here> to download the video mp3 file.  The recording starts with slide 3.

 

One of the chat comments was, "You speak as if the earth is a static system.  I remind you that dinosaurs no longer exist.  Perhaps the best thing to the earth is for the human species to disappear."  I was surprised that this is actually a thing - it's called VHEMT, the Voluntary Human Extinction Movement. Per their website, "Phasing out the human species by voluntarily ceasing to breed will allow Earth’s biosphere to return to good health. Crowded conditions and resource shortages will improve as we become less dense."
