After we stop the global climate change, how do we reverse the effects of all the CO2 that's already been added to the atmosphere?

once we stop emitting CO2 natural carbon sinks will slowly take care of it. It'll take several centuries but it'll happen.

>> No.10715472

it's simple, just stop having kids and give all of your possessions to the government.... BOOM, no more CO2.

By the time we cease emitting CO2 the Earth will have already suffered major climate change, possibly to a disastrous degree. We cannot afford to wait centuries for things to normalize.

Anon the earth is not a closed system and one has to take into account the rest of the universe. Don't be so egotistical to think for one sec that we can have a major influence here. Planet earth has been here way before us, and will continue to be here long after.

Be that as it may, I would prefer if our entire economy and ecosystem didn't suffer catastrophic collapse.

I hate this fucking non-argument. It's not about saving the rock we call Earth, it's about the things that live on that rock -- and that includes us.

>> No.10716052

this rock has fucked us before, you know, when humans lived "in harmony with nature"...theres no solid evidence for man made climate change but we do have solid evidence for natural climate change (btw even collisions from "space objects" is a natural event)

lets supose there is man-made climate manipulation, still earth WILL have his cycle of climate change because thats what it's been doing since it exist!

You can't stop climate change, climate change has always happened naturally and it's a bad idea to interfere with the natural process. There is no reason to reduce CO2 since it is good for food production and for plants generally.

This, all the trees will soak it up, die, then turn into coal so we can burn it all over again

>> No.10721949

I don't think you understand how trees work

>> No.10721967

I do, carbon is trapped in their wood. When you burn wood you are releasing that carbon back into the atmosphere. If the wood is not burned and not decayed by organisms it will eventually get buried and pressure will turn it into coal. Trees are a carbon sink, so are animals.
Hence the name fossil fuels.

If the CO2 traps the suns heat in the atmosphere, wouldnt that also mean that the heat has a hard time getting in in the first place?

>> No.10721985

Yep. The issue is that the light that doesn't have a hard time is absorbed and reradiated at a lower frequency by the earth and then it can't go back out

>> No.10721991

CO2 absorbs heat it doesn't "trap" it...

>> No.10722047

>> No.10722058

CO2 mainly absorbs at the infrared spectrum. most of the sun's energy is transferred into the earth as visible light. Which is remitted as infrared. Which is absorbed by CO2 (and other greenhouse gasses) which significantly slows it's radiation into space.

>> No.10722070

we are not

>> No.10722082

UV light goes through CO2, reradiated IR doesn't.

>> No.10722200

If we wanted to we could remove CO2 from air even to 100ppm below what we started with.

With nuclear power and mattershifts membrane.

But we can't remove the plastic and poisons from our land and bodies. We can't stop mass extinctions without stopping civilization.

CO2, is just 1, fairly small problem compared to insecticides and agriculture monoculture

>> No.10722249

This is a great use of nuclear power imo. Any carbon sequestration scheme is basically money down the drain and nuclear is unattractive because of it's costs but we need to reduce atmospheric CO2 and nuclear isotopes just rot in the ground otherwise. Plus the reactors could help bolster renewables so that we would need less energy storage to power the grid

>> No.10725067

Well we can start to grow food inside "Factories" - where soil is recycles and used in containers so that pesticides or w/e chemicals do not pass into next crop generation - but are only used as a tool if a pest problem occurs.

But again people don't read scientific papers, agriculture conferences, check on what type of businesses were developed along the mentioned lines with accessible consumer goods and services etc.

Some of the hallmarks of a fascist govenrment is strong centralized power, militancy, and the use of conflict as a national unifier. Now consider what the government would look like if you declared war on millions of refugees.

Do me a favour and read at least the wiki page before you discuss literally anything in the future.
