I read before, that the bad water distribution was the reason why CA has many droughts.
The farmers are not allowed to collect water for the summer, due to some laws.

And now they have to buy it back.

It seems that was the plan all along.

Controlled burns need to happen more often anyway. All this fire suppression year after year is causing unnatural levels of fuel build-up on the forest floor that is a disaster waiting to happen.

And in the end, climate change will be used as an all encompassing excuse for all bad local/regional environmental practices in Forestry, Agriculture, Mining, Industry, and Municipalities.

As an aside, Forests will never be a good permanent carbon sink. At least not within human time-frames. Not unless all that biomass suddenly fell into bogs and fossilized. They are meant to burn down and grow and burn down and grow again(with some old growth sticking around for longer periods). They are good for a lot of other things though. Natural windbreaks, reducing flooding and increasing the renewal rate of groundwater by improving the porosity and moisture retention of the soil, cleaning the air, etc. Which is why it's good to have as much forest coverage as practical. But people need to get over this popular romanticized myth of them never moving or evolving/changing.

I'm not sure where you're based, but the US and Canada have done a lot the last few decades to help their wildlife recover. For example, the banningg of DDT allowing raptors to recover dramatically. Sadly we are not the world and countries such as China and India have not been so kind to their wildlife. Worldwide fisheries are also generally overfished and are near the point of collapse in many places.

What's the deal with the anthropocene period anyways? You're just doing your thing and suddenly mother earth goes all crazy with the storms and weather. You can't even say you're just on your anthropocene period and that's why you're mad because she'll just double down on the crazy.

More storms, more flooding, more chaos.

I tell ya, Noah had it right. We need to build an ark and float out of this nonsense. Like last time we need to leave the unicorns ashore. You know who I mean. Two of every animals except the troublesome ones.

If unicorns were so great they'd still be here. I know, they look great in fantasy depictions and little girls and gays go nuts over them, but few people realize they were the dicks of the horse world. Always stabbing people for no reason. And the sex, they were freaks. Many a time olden peoples were like "ummm, that's just not right for you to be doing that with your horn."

And did they listen? Hell no they didn't. And now there are no more unicorns and that wasn't an accident.

The point that's important here is that the mass of plastic is not a good measure for damage. surface area is a better measure. You can have a solid cubic meter block of plastic and it will do practically zero environmental damage. However, turn this block into a bunch of foil and bags and wrapping material and the damage will be extensive

And before a country devotes money to cleaning up its air, land and water, it must make a major commitment to do so — which won’t happen in Russia, for example, as long as its leaders believe manmade climate change is a hoax.

That's bullshit. You don't need to "believe climate change" in order to address city air pollution. A brief search gives articles like this going into details and numbers that there's a progress albeit slow. Also AQI shows quite a different picture.

I think the negative press is maybe not an agenda against the industry, but just the sad reality that the industry isn't effective anymore. In the US plastics recycling has mostly devolved into PR operation to make consumers feel less guilty about consuming all the plastic. Since China has stopped taking scrap plastic from the US (and likely UK too) the vast fraction has gone into storage and landfills.

Basically we're now on our own to try to figure out what to do with it. And until we do plastic recycling will mostly continue to be a PR psychology operation for consumers.

I have a feeling there will be no money in recycling medium and low grade mixed plastics. It might become break even, or it needs to be subsidized I'm guessing. You can pay people a small amount of money to try to make it into a usable resin to mix into asphalt for patching roads. You might be able to use it to admix into solid rocket fuel. But there's no money or negative money in all these uses. It needs to be slightly subsidized likely. I'm okay with spending a few cents of tax if it would help get rid of my pakaging and consumption.

These coloured plastic are legitimately difficult to recycle. Ready meal trays are only black or other colours because marketing departments thought their customers wouldn't like to see cold food sloshing around in clear packaging. They can all be made clear and easier to recycle, it's only just starting to happen.

yes that would have been nice. I'm worried that all this going into landfills will sometimes wash into the seas over geological time. not all of it will remain buried. That's the problem.

If it can be turned into a form that is unlikely to wash from a landfill and contain almost all of the plastic then the problem is solved imho. An example would be if they could admix some gunk derivative of the plastics into asphalt.

Microplastics are also a issue. Even for biodegadable.

There are however new bacteria that have evolved that break down some plastics like some organisms break down waxes. The enzyme is called 'petase' among other names:

I like you focus on packaging material. The point that's important here is that the mass of plastic is not a good measure for damage. surface area is a better measure. You can have a solid cubic meter block of plastic and it will do practically zero environmental damage. However, turn this block into a bunch of foil and bags and wrapping material and the damage will be extensive with today's recycling and WM infrastructure.

I've moved a lot in the past few years and I don't mean from apartment to apartment in the same little area. The petty changes from place to place in what can and cannot be recycled were so ridiculous that I almost gave up caring - fortunately the bin at my current house has a detailed list of what CAN go in there and what should NOT. The last municipality did not even have a convenient hand-out or PDF on their webpage detailing what they do and do not accept, and accordingly, the friends I was staying with threw everything in the garbage instead.

I once made a change.org petition to make it mandatory that non-reusable plastics, such as wrapping materials, shopping bags and water bottles be made out of biodegradable plastics. I got all of 7 votes.

It shows one thing: people don't give a shit. To them, so long as they put the plastic in the recycle bin, it's out of sight and out of mind, and don't bother me with this shit again. That's the kind of attitude people have. And I can't really blame them: everybody's busy. But it's been known since the beginning that recycling wouldn't work over the long haul, not without major innovation in the field. It was the wrong path to begin with.

And to further comment on the video, who is really profiting from China's really low environment standard? Pretty much everyone else who buy from there. It sure is an unfair competition, but I guess that is part of free market. Like it is said in the video, "Innovating our way to a cleaner environment without depriving anyone of their freedom". China is depriving people of their freedom and not even considering environment. Is the point of the video to stop buying from China? Because it is easy to say they are the worst when they are producing a lot of what people want (or the crap people don't need).

And no one will blame China (and Indochina, India, indonesia, etc) for their massive dumping habits. The US literally gives China money to "take" the trash when they ship back their empty cargo containers that used to have cheaply made products for Americans. And then the Chinese simply dump it into the ocean so they don't have to pay to bury it. Problem solved, right?

Well, I don't see how this could be racist unless those big HAARP arrays are pointed right at the Three Gourges Dam to bring maximum rain and I expect they are. Not sure but I think HAARP is above Trump's pay grade. But if 400 million Chinese die in a flood caused by Western Powers then someone will be blamed by the media for racism and who else but Trump? We have been told that a war with China has already begun and I think we are looking at it right here.

Yeah, I've heard that straits cause the earth's rotation to slow down a tiny bit. [BTW, I saw a video about the dam and it mentioned the fact that it causes the Earth's rotation to slow ever so slightly. The vid was <simon winchester three gourges dam>]

I forget the specifics but it was something along the lines how moon affects ocean tides. Because they put such a massive body water were there wasn't one before it slowed earths rotation by a tiny amount.

Is that true about the dams affecting the moon's orbit? Because I wouldn't doubt it.

Four-hundred million people could have their day ruined by a dam site. (I've waited about ten years for a chance to use this joke and nobody got it. I guess it's how you tell 'em.)

Indeed. He seems to just be criticising popular environmental talking points, but tries to connect them all under the banner of climate change to make it seem like a wider refutation.

As you said, this seems so disingenuous. I will add a few of my thoughts. He doesn't actually disprove many of the problems with climate change (ocean acidification, rising sea levels, desertification etc.).

Humans are causing a sixth mass extinctions but the reasons are mostly not climate change (yet) but habitat loss, pollution and the industrial agriculture he seems to hold in high regard.

The Amazon is not the lung of the world (probably algae have more impact) but it is very diverse and stores a lot of CO2, cutting it down will greatly increase habitat loss and extinctions.

Preventing future pandemics requires more not less “industrial” agriculture

Industrial meat production does reduce the risk of diseases spreading from wild to farm animals and from there to us, but it is a breeding ground for antibiotic resistant bacteria, which is poised to become a big problem.

Most of the arguments aren't even related to climate change. For example that environmentalism was done wrong in the past sometimes doesn't disprove anything about environmental problems.

good on you being honest. btw a little insight, corrupt evil power structure ppl always use real problems (that they create) to force a fake solution that benefits them. it's called the hegelian dialectic

so what's at play with the "global warming" scam is this, manufacturing creates highly toxic industrial waste contaminating the world. rather than address that very real problem, the corrupt power structure offers co2 (what plants breath) as the problem, and since humans exhale co2 that lines up with their depopulation agenda. beware any self proclaimed environmentalist that NEVER speaks about toxic industrial waste

I have not read the book but going off the statements he makes, his views are very flawed. A lot of his claims are true, but it is bad faith within the context.

Humans are not causing a “sixth mass extinction”

He contradicts his claim like a few lines later by saying "Habitat loss and the direct killing of wild animals are bigger threats to species than climate change" and climate change partially causes a significant amount of habitat loss.

Carbon emissions are declining in most rich nations and have been declining in Britain, Germany, and France since the mid-1970s

Due to de-industrialisation, by moving manufacturing elsewhere, and the increasing adoption of more renewable and nuclear-based energy in remaining industries.

Fires have declined 25 percent around the world since 2003

True but not because climate change is false, rather urban development is spreading and removing sources of flash fires such as forests, farmlands and savannahs.

Wood fuel is far worse for people and wildlife than fossil fuels

True, although for far more detailed reasons than he implies within this statement. However, wood fuel is not the only alternative to fossil fuels.

“Free-range” beef would require 20 times more land and produce 300 percent more emissions

True. factory farming is more efficient and environmentally friendly, but that argument is unrelated to climate change but rather animal rights and most environmentalists prefer reducing meat consumption even by half or fully through veganism (which I oppose as veganism is not a healthy lifestyle and the ethics behind it is based on flawed premises IMHO).

Science depends on the ability for scientists to have open debates. This type of censorship of opinion is anti-science. This college has decided they're no longer interested in the pursuit of knowledge, but rather the pushing of narratives. It's a sad thing when the scientific establishment is so openly divorced from the scientific method.

We only have one environment and we need to preserve it for future generations. We also need to be rational. Being irrational in the name of environmentalism is not a virtue. It seems to me that the environmentalist movement has become too radical. When Professors are losing their careers because they did not corrupt their work with a political agenda we have a serious problem.

Could digital clothing help stop climate change? by fanterbanter in environment

Privacy concerns aside, and believe me there are a lot. If there is anything that is damaging the environment it is thrown out electronics and a crap ton of clothing. Then this article comes a long and claims that if we were to put electronics into clothing which complicates both reuse of clothing and reuse of the electrical components let's convert everything into a non-recyclable and non-reusable form of clothing embedded with electronic components. Are you for real? The solution is to use less stuff and for longer. And when it comes time to dispose of something that hasn't any more use in your life anymore either re-purpose it as something else entirely, or recycle the various component materials for use in other products.
