  1. The US since 1998 is meddling with climate and geoengineering. So before claiming that "carbon" CO2 is responsible for this, the United States is solely responsible for climate patterns being whacky.

  2. The people telling you to eat bugs are themselves dining on finest meat
    The people wanting to ban you from driving gasoline cars are themselves flying private jets
    The people telling you to live in a pod are themselves living in mansions
    It;s called climate hypocrisy

    Paying more taxes to the government will NOT change the weather

  3. There is no climate change migration. Its all an excuse to allow people from other countries come into your country and take jobs and such so that normal citizens are dependent on their government and can not argue with them.

  4. Have we crossed the point of no return in terms of damaging the planet? There is no such point. We need to trust that our thought, which is our greatest quality, can change nature. We only need to understand the direction to which we should aim our thoughts. What should we think about? What condition or state should we aspire to and ask for?
    In order to save our planet, we should think about positive human connections. That is, how can we, in our connections, keep nature safe? How can we all together protect our world? If we truly wish to better our planet, then we should see people holding a concern for how to positively connect everywhere that we look.
    It has nothing to do with recycling or other activities that we commonly associate with as being sustainable. If we come closer to and consider each other, that we will reach an entirely organic, perfectly connected and round state, then the negative forces will disappear from the world.
    We need to understand that if we start thinking better about each other, then the planet will recover from all harm, because our thoughts are the strongest force in nature. Likewise, our negative thoughts about each other are entirely to blame for damaging the planet. That is why the more we recycle and invest in energies and activities that we commonly think of as being sustainable, the worse our planet becomes. Nothing will work to benefit us until we reach a state where our attitude changes toward each other for the better to protect and improve our planet.

  5. The Dept of Defense has known about this outcome of climate change (climate refugees) for years and years. Yet they've done nothing along with the rest of the American government to slow or stop climate change. Shameful.

  6. I was a climate migrant for 7 years living on a sailboat and moving north and south yearly with the seasons. I believe I'll do the same thing again during the rest of my retirement years. The long, bitter cold winter in the north is too hard to take and the southern summer is a sweltering sauna with life threatening heat and hurricanes. No need to endure either when you can just up and sail away with the added benefit of new scenery, new adventures and new friends to boot.

  7. We need to shift away from animal agriculture. The sheer quantity of food grown for animals could feed the world 10 times over. Animal agriculture is responsible for ocean dead zones due to run off of factory farms of factory farms, It is responsible for Amazon deforestation, and plenty other terrible thing. In fact most if not all aspects of climate change are either directly or indirectly caused through our food systems.

  8. Dead bodies decades under water r appearing now @ Lake Meade w the accelerated evaporation conditions of Lake Meade the "Bath Tub" ring is expanding> Water supply straws 'one' and 'two' r no long active & exposed to the atmosphere!
