    The rainy season is late this year and it is super hot in south east asia so I do believe in global warming.

    The Nature article is calling the Blueprint book bullshit.

    "Plomin likes to say that various components of nurture “matter, but they don’t make a difference”. But the benefits of good teaching, of school lunches and breakfasts, of having textbooks and air-conditioning and heating and plumbing have been established irrefutably. And they actually are causal: we know why stable blood sugar improves mental concentration. Yet Plomin dismisses such effects as “unsystematic and unstable, so there’s not much we can do about them”.

    Ultimately, if unintentionally, Blueprint is a road map for regressive social policy. Nothing here seems overtly hostile, to schoolchildren or anyone else. But Plomin’s argument provides live ammunition for those who would abandon proven methods of improving academic achievement among socio-economically deprived children. His utopia is a forensic world, dictated by polygenic algorithms and the whims of those who know how to use them. People would be defined at birth by their DNA. Expectations would be set, and opportunities, resources and experiences would be doled out — and withheld — a priori, before anyone has had a chance to show their mettle.

    To paraphrase Lewontin in his 1970 critique of Jensen’s argument, Plomin has made it pretty clear what kind of world he wants."

    Not only that, but his research in no way concludes "environmental factors have very little effect." You are just flat out making up your own conclusions based on science you don't understand.

    Was your comment cut off or is this all? It doesn't make too much sense anyway. The Arctic has its polar cap for millions of years now. Partly due to continental movement, there was very different climate on many places than it is now. Antartica was covered with rain forest, it was a tropical paradise situating around the Equator some 50 million years ago. So what? We aren't talking about geological history, but the present and the rather rapid change in the climate, which is happening right before our eyes.

    Climate change is natural, but not in its present pace.

    I study science and yes data support this. So, yes this is real. People should be aware of your actions.

    Yeah sure. Wouldn't hurt. We've already done so considerably just be advancing our manufacturing techniques and packaging methods. The more advanced a civilization gets the less waste they produce, this goes for technological, economical, etc, and why you see countries like India producing 2-3x as much waste per person than say someone in UK or US.

    Someone said that we need to wait the 3rd world to develop and the ask them to apply the eco regulations. That's insane. We need to take massive actions in the next few years if we want to save the Planet.

    I don't know I didn't read it, I took a guess as it was on the same subject. As I said I read it on paper, not online. And that was weeks ago, not from 2018. Either way a whole alinea you're posting is subjective about how they don't like it rather than countering facts. That's just typical "were all the same bullshit". Any antropologist & archeologist will laugh in your face if you say that.

    You do realize that even if the whole world stopped producing co² tomorrow it would still take a century for the effects to slow down right. And that's an unrealistic situation, even if somehow we pulled it off in the west, which is impossible, 3rd world countries have a free card on pollution and are getting kids at insane numbers.
    Anyone claiming we can do anything is completely delusional. They're still building coal factories in the west, they're still investing in oil. They're still drilling for gass in our ice caps.
    It's one big marketing bullshit. If you don't see that by now, god save your soul.
    I'm all for some green to keep my air breathable, but climate change, you have and will have zero impact with your electric car. zero.

    I wasn't talking about the solution, just the reasons.

    But if we talk about solutions, for one, the world doesn't have to stop producing CO2, there are advanced methods to store it underground in rocks perfectly safe. There are more than one way to deal with it en mass, the technology is ready.

    One electric car won't make a difference, but when there are many electric cars like in Norway, that does. When most cars will run on green energy, that will be the ideal, but i guess, one step at a time. Now they sell more new electric cars there than regular ones. That's an extreme example and not many country can pull this stunt off, but they did it.
    Gasoline is piss cheap in such a developed country as the US, still, Tesla is outperforming traditional car manufacturers, when it comes to new car sales. And this happened in a matter of years. Something has definitely started.

    Climate change is a complex issue. In the US transportation is responsible for around 30% of greenhouse gases produced by man, around 3/4 of that is coming from cars. You see, even if every car would be electric from tomorrow, that would mean only 20% less greenhouse gas emmission, which is not a too big number and won't happen, but every little percentage counts.

    Switching to electric cars is not the most important thing to do, cars are not the main culprit, but a start.

    Everything starts in the head. If everyone thinks like you, nothing will change, if more and more people start to think different than you, that's when increasing trends can slow down or even change.

    Based on percentage of green house gas emissions, US, China and India holds top 3 positions. First and second are not third world. Where ever possible to change can change. It will help them to reduce gas imports which helps their economy as well..

    The top 3 vehicles sold are pickup trucks, none of the vehicles produced by Tesla crack the top 10.

    I still don't get how people can NOT believe in this, also people that believe the earth is flat. We should send them on a spaceship to see the Earth is round, and shut them up for good.

    Overpopulation.

    Many scientists think Earth has a maximumcarrying capacity of 9 billion to 10 billion people. [How Do You Count 7 Billion People?] One such scientist, the eminent Harvard University sociobiologist Edward O. Wilson, bases his estimate on calculations of the Earth's available resources.
    The population is expected to reach between 8 and 10.5 billion between theyears 2040 and 2050

    Since I think Earth went all wrong. I will do everything to screw the planet. I drive a 3.3 V6 Hyundai Santa Fé and a PT Cruise 2 4 and both are crazy about petrol. I travel a lot by plane so... I don't Care. I beg for a very bad Third War involving Russia-China against USA.

    It's about time to correct the History books. Im not anti-American nor a Commie... Im a alt-right to death but Im sick about the lies since 1945.

    No cold War... I wanna see real, brutal combats. So we or our children may take a better care of our planet.

    US forces would fold after 2 weeks fighting Russian soldiers Tete-a-tete. Everytime I remember Sopranos' Pine Weedens episode.
