The poster asked for natural contributions to co2 emissions. If you want to add that to the list....who am I to disagree. Thanks for playing, sport. You seemed to like peeing on your own foot!
There isn't anything more 'natural contribution' than coal, wood, oil,(ie. fossil fuels) that were formed through millions of years by the Sun. Fossil fuels was a free, once-in-a-millennium gift from the Sun and we wasted and used it up in less than 100 years and threatened to destroy Earth's atmosphere by our over-excess.

I don't discuss population growth[.] Brian emphasizes on poverty too
No, I mentioned poverty; the emphasis is on productivity and prosperity offered by industrialization and the corresponding urban population growth.

excess growth? do we need to kill off the greedy folks and gluttons, in your view, son?

if your view of the u.s. is that it's too big, fat, lazy, and monstrous......maybe you should move to north korea. i view MY country as the greatest nation in history. since you brought up a religious figure.....i view the u.s. as a 'garden of eden' compared to the rest of the world and powers throughout history. the fat, lazy, monstrous represent the likes of you who despise the 'gardens' growth and bounty. you, son, are like a weed in the garden sapping away the goodness and potential yield of the 'garden'.

the pope is welcome to his opinions just like you are, son. just don't confuse them for facts.

i believe you and hugo chavez would've had a love/hate relationship!!

urbanization is the increasing number (population growth) in an urban area! that's what urbanization is plain and simple, son.
So plain and simple that you urbanise urban areas, no so tiring an exercise.
ritedownthemiddle wrote:
you jumped into the conversation claiming that urbanization was caused by poverty.
Rather poverty, I said
and added was that non-urban wealhty peoples have no economical reasons to move to cities.
ritedownthemiddle wrote:
one could argue that poverty causes the opposite, which is de-urbanization. detroit is a prime example!
Leaving a town is emigration, de-urbanization would mean that the abandonned areas are turning back as rural areas. I'm not aware that the abandonned districts of Detroit became open fields.

Yeah, some 'garden of eden', 28th in the world in healthcare ; slipped to second to Canada's wealthiest Middle Class (even lower than many of our European allies who have much better conditions like free education and healthcare for all, less work days and more vacation, less stress and worry and greater happiness. Too bad that we did not follow our own Founders ' wishes in making the right of 'pursuit of happiness ' more important than owning guns and other material possessions .

We've been burning coal, peat and anything else that burns for almost half a million years. Using fossil fuel helps light your way, share information, travel where you need to go or do your work; not waste. Our modern lifestyles couldn't exist without fossil fuel; we need the energy to run our economy.

Don't be a hater, our CO2 emissions are part of life; without us, nobody would be around to measure CO2's delightful trip through the oceans, lithosphere and atmosphere. We are the carbon balance.

Possibly you are confusing "pursuit of happiness" with government "hand me free stuff"?

. No. Use of fossil fuels was only a reality for humans starting in the 18th century with the first Industrial Revolution.
"For all but a tiny sliver of mankind's 50,000 year history, the use of energy has been severely limited. For most of it the only source of energy humans could draw upon was the most basic: human muscle. The discovery of fire and the burning of wood, animal dung and charcoal helped things along by providing an immediate source of heat. Next came domestication, about 12,000 years ago, when humans learned to harness the power of oxen and horses to plough their fields and drive up crop yields.2" ... "Near the end of the 18th century, in a wave of unprecedented innovation and advancement, Europeans began to unlock the potential of fossil fuels. It began with coal. Though the value of coal for its heating properties had been known for thousands of years, it was not until James Watt's enhancement of the steam engine that coal's power as a prime mover was unleashed.

Not magic, what makes you think the geological forces that filled oil fields has stopped? We've never run out of any mineral resource, can you cite any mineral element or compoundl we've used up?

^^^Alarmists know neither science or history.

Here's the real deal about how long we've been using fire:

The control of fire by early humans was a turning point in the cultural aspect of human evolution that allowed humans to cook food and obtain warmth and protection. Making fire also allowed the expansion of human activity into the dark and colder hours of the night, and provided protection from predators and insects.

Evidence of widespread control of fire dates to approximately 125,000 years ago and later. Evidence for the controlled use of fire by Homo erectus beginning some 400,000 years ago has wide scholarly support, with claims regarding earlier evidence finding increasing scientific support.

Claims for the earliest definitive evidence of control of fire by a member of Homo range from 0.2 to 1.7 million years ago (Mya).

Up to now, for coal, oil and gaz fields, you've got to have combination of biologic sediments, and geological forces.

non urban wealthy people probably own at least a condo in the city. LMAO@U
which, by the way, contributes to urbanization.

many districts in detroit are overrun with wild dogs.

you are comical!

your version of the 'pursuit of happiness' isn't what the founders envisioned, son.

Did you know the Earth's crust is a conveyor that continually recycles elements around the biosphere? Don't let science scare you, look for experimental tests.
