Is something else driving CO2 emissions?Watch
So this year CO2 emissions are expected to fall for the largest in decades - 5-5.5%.
But think about it: so shutting down half the world, and most developed countries, only reduces it by 5%? Surely this shows that it is basically impossible to reduce CO2 emissions properly, and that something else must be causing them?
You must remember that C02 is a natural product that has been emitted for eons, only the annual rise is really blamed by humans and that amounts to 1-2% per year (with the climate change being the result of sustained rises). As others have mentioned i am still sitting here on the internet in a country which produces ~45% of electricity from things that produce CO2. To reverse the rise you would need to see this fall in emmisions persist for a few decades.
No, the solution is less people,. unfrotuantely liberals and even many socialists ignore that the fundamental problem is overpopulation. More people means more resources and more emissions. It's not hard to understand really.
The solution to the problem really is to colonise other planets. We need to work together more to achieve this rather than closing our eyes to the rationality of science. This is the most logical and ethical solution.
