        Oh come on, it was windy/not windy, dry/wet, average hurricane season/hurricane drought, hot/cold. That proves climate change is real, anon, any observed meteorological event is proof of climate change.

        all of the people dumb enough to believe it who use global warming as an excuse to not procreate.
        confirmation bias leads a lot of ugly people into believing in global warming

      According to NASA landsat data, in the past 50 years we’ve seen an almost 20% increase in vegetation worldwide. This is roughly double the size of the continental US of new forest. This is mostly attributed to a warmer, wetter climate with longer growing seasons.

          There aren’t any. Here, let’s go through it.

          This is because of human actions, mostly China’s reforestation efforts. Nothing to do with climate change or CO2 like this scrotebrain thinks

          CO2 makes plants grow faster

          Assuming it’s real, more places to live in the northern hemisphere.

          This guy is scrotebrained because he doesn’t understand that all of that land is already habitable and we’ll lose a shitload of land at the equator, which will create tens of millions of climate refugees like this guy pointed out

          …which is why they’ll let in climate change refugees.

          Go away until you understand the difference between science and politics.

                  Are you stupid? That’s carbonic acid from the ocean absorbing CO2 from the atmosphere. Guess what happens if we return the CO2 levels to what they were in 1850?

                    When you say "cool the Earth" I’m imagining dimming the sun. CO2 capture is much harder.

                    Maybe. I think the ocean is suffering moreso because of acidification than the temperature rise.

                    >the ocean is suffering moreso because of acidification than the temperature rise
                    Which is correct, but then you call him stupid while contradicting your own original claim when you implied it was the temperature that is killing off marine wildlife rather the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere which you then are forced to admit. Also, carbonic acid does not "absorb" CO2. Rather, much like the bicarbonate buffer system in humans that helps maintain homeostatic pH, carbon dioxide (CO2) reacts with water (H2O) to produce carbonic acid (H2CO3). Except in vivo the reaction is catalyzed by complex enzymes to increase efficiency. This is also related to Le Chatelier’s principle whereby increasing the concentration of CO2 in the air or in the bloodstream will also increase the product as the system tries to restore equilibrium. You can try this yourself if you hyperventilate, you will see higher blood pH because you are blowing off more CO2. The equilibrium tries to compensate by shifting the reaction to that side, or restoring the decreasing concentration of CO2 by converting bicarbonate ions. Lower bicarbonate concentration, more specifically fewer hydrogen ions, means higher pH.

                        No you idiot, dissolved CO2 is just CO2. It has to react with water to form carbonic acid you complete dumbass.
                        >Way to fail at being pedantic.
                        It’s not pedantic you scrotebrain because "carbonic acid absorbing CO2" does not make any freaking sense. Carbonic acid does not "absorb" shit. It either dissociates into water and carbon dioxide or bicarbonate and a hydrogen ion but it does not "absorb" anything. Please lurk moar and you might learn something instead.

                        hey instead of arguing with that idiot, maybe you can help me. these are my posts:

                        https://i.4cdn.org/sci/1633807394367.webm

                        not sure if this is the best thread for this question or not.
                        i do NOT have a side in the global warming debate, i’m still doing my research.
                        from what i gather, most people agree the planet is getting warmer.
                        my question is, what scientific proof is there that this is being caused by humans? not correlation, but actual causation?
                        thank you in advance.

                        i’m scrotebrained. can you walk me through it a bit? what do you mean by that?

                        ok, not that scrotebrained. i understand we’re releasing CO2 into the atmosphere.
                        what proof is there that this added CO2 is the cause of increased temperatures?
                        again, not trying to argue sis, trying to learn

                        >https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greenhouse_gas
                        lol come on stud, act like an adult. we all know how greenhouse gasses work. a wikipedia article is not proof that we have released enough CO2 to be the prime drivers of climate change.
                        what i am asking you, posters in a LULZ thread, is where is the hard evidence that the increase in CO2 release from humans is driving climate change. hard, real, scientific data.
                        this should not be difficult to show. i’m assuming that most scientifically minded people on this board have seen the evidence for themselves and are not relying on wikipedia articles to prove their postulates.

                        not so much debating policy as much as figuring out how to eliminate emissions and pollution without causing people to revolt. the gigantic world population along with the allure of first world luxuries are the main problems.

                        this is what i’m talking about. there are some serious obstacles standing in the way of the utopia we all crave, and we ourselves are the biggest obstacle and it’s just nature. i dont know what it would take to get everyone united around appreciating the simple beauty of the planet but nature is what it is, we are petty envious creatures that don’t want to see anyone else make it and sadly it shows that those in positions of power and influence are no different. ive always figured celebrities and politicians would get bored with greed hedonism and powerlust but it appears not.

                        >The report finds that limiting global warming to 1.5°C would require “rapid and far-reaching” transitions in land, energy, industry, buildings, transport, and cities. Global net human-caused emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) would need to fall by about 45 percent from 2010 levels by 2030, reaching ‘net zero’ around 2050. This means that any remaining emissions would need to be balanced by removing CO2 from the air.

Unless you just came into the thread you’ve been demanding that I lay out policy for you to criticize since the start of the thread. It doesn’t matter. Fuck, let’s pretend we solve climate change 100% in this thread. Who cares? Who’s going to see it?

                        no, but it’s fun to brainstorm about how to possibly convince humanity to stop over indulging and appreciate the little things instead of constantly pursuing over indulgence, but that of course starts at the top. Celebrities and politicians would never go for this and they’re the most worthless parts of society yet have all the power and influence. They’re the ones that need to set the example but they, liek the majority of us, are too consumed with the power and dominance struggle and too consumed by their luxurious lifestyles.

                who the fuck is talking about china? if you have two plants each in an isolated glass jar, the one with higher CO2 concentration grows faster.
                CO2 makes plants grow faster, this is a well known fact and it’s evident when you look at CO2 and vegetation history of earth. whenever CO2 levels peaked they were followed by a slow decrease of CO2 and increase in vegetation. if humans didn’t interfere with plants the exact thing would happen but humans actively decrease and prevent vegetation

                    if you look at earth’s history there is a direct relation between CO2 levels and vegetation. CO2 levels peaked to much higher levels before and always stabilized thanks to the same thing, plants. if we didn’t interfere with nature the same thing would happen.
                    >inb4 muh food
                    current human lifestyle is simply unsustainable, we were riding off a peak and now we are going down. the problem is that environment slacktivists never mention this and they keep seething about CO2 when it’s like the least harmful thing we are doing. we are polluting nature with organic molecules and forms of heavy metals it has no way to deal with and we are destroying niches and habitats among many other things

                      Lol no. Do you have any evidence to support that claim?

                      Do you remember when the rivers were catching fire regularly from all the chemicals we dumped in them? Guess why that doesn’t happen anymore.

                        without carbon sequestration CO2 levels would be 10 000ppm today. it’s common knowledge that increased CO2 levels lead to increased capture of CO2, here is an easy to read source since you have the knowledge and the comprehension of a fetus: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carbon_sequestration .

                        relevance? those "chemicals" are just oil which is just simple hydrocarbons. we dump worse things now

                        Lol carbon sequestration has next to nothing to do with the amount of vegetation on Earth. You have not provided evidence for your claim.

                        >relevance? those "chemicals" are just oil which is just simple hydrocarbons. we dump worse things now
                        Lol no, they were all kinds of gnarly shit. Much worse than what we still dump today. The relevance is that the rivers stopped catching fire because of the environment regulations established and enforced by the EPA. Guess who demanded that agency be established?

                        the wikipedia article for carbon sequestration and biosequestration specifically says that increased CO2 concentrations increases photosynthesis thus increasing carbon sequestration. the fact that plants in greenhouses do this too is conclusive evidence that higher CO2 leads to more vegetation. obviously there is other variables like mineral composition of soil and water and glacials, etc but historically the trend has always been that increased CO2 leads to increase in carbon sequestration, in fact one of the ways they look at historical CO2 levels is through organic matter, if a layer has more organic matter then CO2 levels were higher. i don’t know why you are unable to accept this fact. plants aren’t sequestrating faster in awe of Xi jinping’s brightness and china’s glory. it’s good that china is planting forests but it’s CO2 that’s making plants grow faster

                        You are silly. That’s a lot of conjecture and it’s not what we’ve been seeing. We’ve doubled the concentration of CO2 so where’s all the extra plant growth? That NASA article says that nearly all of the "greening" over the last few decades has been from China actively reforesting deserts.

            The reforestation efforts are the ones going by the logging companies because they are smart enough to know that paper needs time to grow and there is plenty of space where the other trees were just cut down

            Ch-Ina only works on reforestation to combat the desertification of land from the asian deserts.

              Read the NASA paper. They’ve been converting desert to farmland for decades now. The area they’ve deforested is huge. Logging companies have no positive effect since they reforest the same land over and over until it’s no longer productive

            Mate you are bringing politics in to this. The question isn’t if there is a net benefit. It seems clear there won’t be. And while /poo/ may have a vested interest in this. It’s still interesting to look at what the upsides are to this. It’s happening either way. And there are silver linings to everything. Why not examine the good parts of global warming?

        Europeans will just drop bombs and mass-exterminate the migrants.
        That’s been the plan all along. Once there’s no other option, the justification will naturally follow.
        The reason global warming isn’t being addressed is because it is the catalyst that will be used to exterminate the non-white races.

        Why do you people always talk about this like there’s nothing Europe can do about it. Like
        >oh they want to come here in such numbers it will ruin all our lives and destroy our country, oh well what can you do
        First off, they absolutely have the ability to stop every single African from stepping foot on European soil. Will they do that? Quite clearly not, because they are stupid and life is good, too many weak men. But you watch, as the migrants make life worse and worse more and more men will get fed up and switch sides. Walls will be put up, insanely well armed walls. And you know what? Many of the guards on those walls will be earlier migrants trying to protect what little of Europe will be left saving. This all WILL happen. It’s only a matter of how bad Europe will let it get, and if there’s anything worth saving by the time they get a freaking clue. Every brown person that comes to your country rescues the quality of life in it. Apparently that’s “ok” to a point. But everyone has their limit, even as I said brown people themselves, even they will want to save their new home from turning into their old one at a point

      i do NOT have a side in the global warming debate, i’m still doing my research.
      from what i gather, most people agree the planet is getting warmer.

            Sure. An isotope is an element with a different number of neutrons. The proportion of carbon isotopes in fossil fuels match the proportions of the isotopes in the CO2 added to the atmosphere since the industrial revolution which proves fossil fuels to be the source of that CO2.

                  what i am asking you, posters in a LULZ thread, is where is the hard evidence that the increase in CO2 release from humans is driving climate change. hard, real, scientific data.
                  this should not be difficult to show. i’m assuming that most scientifically minded people on this board have seen the evidence for themselves and are not relying on wikipedia articles to prove their postulates.

                        definitive proof for anthropogenic CO2 release as the main driver of climate change would look something like a statistical analysis, not a high school geology textbook.
                        now how they would prove that, i don’t know. i know the famous "hockey-stick" graph has been ‘debunked’ time and again, but i imagine there is other, valid data out there that ties increasing temperatures with increasing CO2 release while also discrediting effects from the sun or other factors that might influence planetary temperatures.

                        So if you know what a greenhouse gas is and how it works then your should know that CO2 is a greenhouse gas and that we’ve measured the change in albedo from CO2. Guess how I know that you haven’t read shit?

                        >Click the little [36] to see the source
                        alright, i did that. probably should have thought of doing that first, lol.
                        thanks for the albedo idea, i’ve never heard about it and will look into it more. but again, it’s just a description of the mechanism of greenhouse gas.
                        do you see how this is not proof? describing how greenhouse gases work does not prove that human release of CO2 is for sure driving global warming.
                        you wrote in

                        So if you know what a greenhouse gas is and how it works then your should know that CO2 is a greenhouse gas and that we’ve measured the change in albedo from CO2. Guess how I know that you haven’t read shit?

                        :
                        >we’ve measured the change in albedo from CO2
                        which is great evidence in favor of anthropogenic climate change; we’re releasing CO2, and we’ve measured how much this CO2 is influencing albedo.
                        now, my question is, how much is this albedo affecting global temperatures? THAT would be good proof, some data that shows that. but right now, we’re stuck in the middle: CO2 affects albedo (assuming the sources i read have valid data to back that up), but has this measured change in albedo created this measured change in temperature? again, causation is not correlation.
                        what do you think?

                        We get our energy from the sun. Albedo determines how much we retain.

                        yeah man, i dig that, i understand the concept.
                        but a concept that makes sense isn’t the same as scientific proof.
                        scientific proof would look something like:
                        >we’ve measured how much our CO2 release has affected albedo
                        >we’ve measured how much this change in albedo has affected global temperatures
                        i’m not saying this data does not exist, i’m asking if it does? there are always a lot of assumptions in complex topics like this, and things get smoothed over sometimes that could throw a wrench in a hypothesis. especially when it’s a politically charged issue like this has become.

                        Yep. It’s called radiative forcing. There’s even an image at the top of that page I linked you on climate change that estimates the contributions if different sources.

                    do you have a recommendation for a source? wikipedia is somewhat lacking:
                    >Climate and weather
                    >Albedo affects climate by determining how much radiation a planet absorbs.[36] The uneven heating of Earth from albedo variations between land, ice, or ocean surfaces can drive weather.

                    >albedo
                    how does the change in albedo prove that CO2 is the main driver of climate change? doesn’t that just prove that we have more CO2 in the atmosphere now, which we both agree on anyway?

                    Not that you’ll actually read it but here you go.

      I read somewhere that warmer seas has altered the migration patterns of some fish, making commercial fishing more lucrative off the coast of Greenland. So if you’re a Greenlandic fisherman, that’s probably pretty neat.

      Global warming is old fake news.
      The narrative was shifted to climate change to accomodate for snow storms and cold waves that could also be sold as crisis in the news.

      The entire thing is a farce being pushed by globohomo to reduce gas and oil consumption and fuck countries such as Russia and Venezuela.

        For the last time, increase in temperature does not spontaneously create arable land. Most of the regions that are warming in northern Russia and Canada are not farmed because the soil is absolutely useless and has no nutrients or structure and is full of rocks.
        See the Yukon and interior Alaska where all the agriculture is restricted to a few, narrow bands of landscape where river deposits have managed to create a tiny amount of topsoil in the 7000 years since the glaciers last bonked the landscape.

      The fact that it’s not real.

      1. "Global average temperature with 0.1 degree centigrade accuracy" is cherrypicked pseudoscience, especially more than 60 years into the past
      2. Increases in temperature follow increases in CO2 with a delay of at least a few centuries.
      3. Talks of the Earth experiencing significant climate change within 30-80 years are asinine.

      I’m of the opinion that global warming is man-made, but won’t be a problem for at least the next 200 years.
