    Global warming is being used as a racket by the western elites to saddle the planet with a tribute yoke. Carbon taxes and
    forced conversion to alt-energy are a scam to extort money from the world. Reducing CO2 is just a side effect of the
    primary objective. The western deciders expect to both set global CO2 emissions policy and at the same time sell the
    overpriced technology to "fix" the problem. This is classic colonial mercantilism.

    We see this already with the coercion against Russian Arctic shipping in the name of saving the polar bears from pollution.
    Russia is responding by deploying LNG powered ships, but the suppression of north sea route shipping is still potent since
    other countries cannot afford to "green" their ships. The relevant point is that Canada, the USA and U-rope never once
    attempted to deploy LNG powered ships in the Arctic but declare the right to dictate pollution controls on every other
    country.

    Surprisingly balanced report focusing on the real sources of the Siberian fires instead of trotting out malcontents
    trying to blame them on Putin.

    The Earth will move on, the only question is if it moves with us included.

    The Earth survived tropical and ice-age conditions, it moves back and forth trough history.
    This whole "ecology emergency"is bullshit. the earth is going trough its next fase like it has gone trough in history.

    The only question if we are along for the ride.

    Look, i am not the hippie-type.
    sometimes for progress you need to bash a tree.

    But, it is just we can not be we turn our planet in an big paved parking lot.

    I look for humanity's progress in science of the stars in the sky themselves.
    Like fusion power developed at ITER. The new developments at CERN.
    I do not want to wreck our planet in the process.

    Instead of now facilitating logistics in war.
    I write software to manage logistic demands in the civilian sector.

    Destroying is easy, creating is difficult,
    It would not harm anyone of we look back on our fellow occupants on this earth every now and then.

    For sure the Earth will move on. And also everything is natural by definition, including humanity's civilization and technology.
    But unfortunately humanity lacks the collective wisdom to make the right choices. We just have rotten elites leading around
    the masses by the nose. These elites are not stellar intellects and their whole existence revolves around securing power and
    promoting business as usual. They are responsible for driving the CO2 accumulation thanks to squandering of precious fossil
    fuel resources and the ensuing consequences.

    I think it is unlikely that fusion will ride in to save the day. The question also arises as to what is wrong with fission power?
    If we as humans are serious about alternatives to fossil fuels, then we should have cranked up nuclear power from the 1970s.
    Instead we had the biggest CO2 emitter, the USA, putting this industry in a coma. Even if fusion arrives in 30 years, we have
    locked in enough warming (through release of cryosphere CH4) that global civilization is screwed. Maybe cheap fusion energy
    will allow some sort of terraforming effort but the scale is vast. It is unlikely that we will see this sort of technological effort
    in the middle of a global economic collapse resulting from agricultural and invested infrastructure (which runs on fossil fuels)
    collapse.

    Global warming is definitely a real thing and is man made but it's not unfixable

    Just planting some trees could do wonders but it has to be done on a scale that no volunteers could pull off (plus the fact that environmentalists now are more concerned with posting on Twitter than environment doesn't help)

    Governments need to get on this and put the boot up the asses of large corporations, order them to start fixing the crap they cause

    Because there is mass fear of radiation in the west. I think Hollywood has a lot of responsibility. It has been pushing
    the mystical power of radiation since the 1950s. People now think that exposure to carcinogens, mutagens and teratogens
    is safer than radiation. We also have the inanity spread around that no dose is safe. If that was true, everyone in Iran
    would have died out a long time ago. The machinery associated with DNA involves self-repair. That is why two strands
    of RNA forming a double helix are significant. There are DNA repair enzymes that evolved in the face of background
    radiation since the dawn of time.

    If people care about DNA damage, then they need to broaden their minds and care about it being caused by chemicals.

    Because they don't have the necessary technology to make it clean like the Russians can without a lot of investment and money being spent.
