"They way I look at it if they are wrong it wouldnt hurt."<quoted text>
It just seems odd that this Complex Computer Crashing Climate can be used to Tera-form by a single adjustment of one variable to achieve any change one might desire.
For example: Turn the CO2 knob to the left, and temps will drop. Turned to the right and temps go up.
That's it... all the science academies agree, it is that simple (not to be confused with 'easy') to manipulate the most complex system science has ever attempted to comprehend.
Does that not pretty much represent the climate science community's position on Climate Mitigation?
So, is this not a reasonable point for one to say... I'm skeptical?
Agree the Super Computers can only extirpate information that has been supplied in accordance to our present knowledge in Physics. Similar to when they predict weather patterns and discover that we still require further information with each time they prove to be in error and the amount of time that can be predicted. It is our first steps from the forest and it will take more than just a few hundred years of serious science and maturity to understand our existence in our surroundings.
CO2 is a factor but not the only factor and its interrelations with other gasses and elements. We made those knobs just as on the weather knobs. Now consider when they predict an Hurricane of the magnitude say 5 is about to hit your area. How many heed the warning and evacuate and how many do not and the results. I myself will evacuate. Even if they are wrong and misses. I can return and suggest to the weatherman to refine their information. Now if I stayed it does hit there is a good chance I will not be around to congratulate them on their knowledgeable prediction.
We can have Faith in our science or not. Personally ; They may be off the mark at times but Ill will give it a most serious respect. Reduce my CO2 , pollution and actively seek Green Alternative systems I do presently have begun planting my gardens. Both in vegetation and solar. They way I look at it if they are wrong it wouldnt hurt.IF they are correct then it would be very helpful to have my Gardens to enjoy and either scenario.
Every science academy agrees that 'CO2 control' is all that is needed to save the planet.
The experts also agree that Man must act NOW or risk a tipping point... a point of no return.
Turning over the CO2 knob to a select group of people would, according to every science academy, allow them to control the worlds climate. And that would not "hurt"? Seems somewhat naive.... I mean what could possibly go wrong?
