To put it simply, use more efficient ways of creating energy/manufacturing. But Im sure I don’t have to explain.


As for everyday people. It’s understandable that not all of us live in an area with convenient public transit, or can afford an electric car. Best to do if you do care but are stuck, just use moderation.
But that seems to be too much of “feeling good”. In other words, Ive seen that thrown around alot. People say it as if one can change their routine overnight.

Only true fix is to push industries to change.

But I think we are beyond fixing, now it’s minimize the effects and prepare for whats ahead.

Actually you do have to explain. The devil is in the details. More efficient manufacturing sounds fine. So does a slow transition to alternative energy - you'll get no argument from me here.

As I said, I like farm raised better. It is pink and moist when you cook it. That wild salmon is more dark red, and can get very dry, especially if you overlook it just a little bit. Plus it tastes fishy to me. The farm raised usually doesn’t taste fishy.

But yes, the wild salmon is supposed to be healthier.
Now we're talkin'!

..
We can work on reducing our current use of 100 million barrels of fossil fuel per day, that would be a good start. Its amazing that we are having major climatic disruptions and for a certain segment of the population its just a source of jokes.

Which would drastically reduce our standard of living and kill the economy. The climate changes naturally and drastically. What percentage is due to Man? What will the taxes, and restrictions do to reduce climate change? What if the natural climate change rises as it always does?

OK. It's easy to say, reduce oil consumption.


How do you do that?


DETAILS PLEASE

Wait, did Trump also remove polar bears from the endangered species list? Well fook! Now we're gonna have a whole bunch of non-producing polar bears just laying around, living off the starving backs of humans with their welfare Slammin salmon, at our taxpaying expense!


Ok, I think I have a solution. If we tax every human worldwide $29.99 each month, regardless of age or income, we can build a bunch of chillers as well as the new power plants to run them, then we could cool the entire arctic, including the waterways, rivers, creeks and lakes. Then those lazy, non-endangered and non-protected welfare recipient polar bears can get off their sorry butts and have to go out, roaming to kill a seal or two to eat and stop living off the backs of the worldwide taxpayers!


What do you mean that we're not suppose to encourage polar bears to eat seals? I know seals are cute and cuddly, but so are polar bears unless they're emaciated from starvation... so we also need to add an additional worldwide tax of $3.99 per month on everyone so that we can send good, healthy foods like breakfast Cheerios, granola bars, trail mix, nuts and berries to the polar bears so they won't become dependent on the government's Slammin salmon welfare program which was created by evil humans selfishly burning fossil fuels and therefore causing the awful crisis known as catastrophic anthropogenic climate change (global warming for you hating deniers of science).



So, for the low cost of only $33.98 each month, you too could save the planet from climate change, save the polar bears, save the seals and save the salmon! So quit being selfish people who only think of yourselves and start doing something to Save The Planet! You can start by mailing $33.98 per month, due by the 10th of each month, to KS_Referee and I'll make sure everything is restored and saved from the evils of humanity.


It's time to take responsibility for all you have done to harm this planet, so send your money NOW!

Industries respond to what the buyers want. Although they do try to influence what buyer want.

I agree these are probably good things regardless of global warming/climate change but how much of an impact will this have on total CO2 emissions. Do you know what the total CO2 emissions per year are from both human and natural sources? Do you know what percentage the types of changes you advocate would cause in total co2 emissions?

As should be apparent by now -- when pressed for details and solutions -- the global warming people have nothing.
