Heatwave around the world has seen a record high temperature this month. Taiwan is the most recent to report a new high temperature of 40.3C. Algeria has reported the highest temperature in Africa of 51.3C on July 5. On the coast of Oman, overnight temperatures remained above 42.6C, which is believed to be the highest “low” temperature ever recorded in the world. Downtown Los Angeles also saw a new monthly July minimum overnight record of 26.1C on 7 July. Most of other countries reported all time high temperature this month and if the trend continues, it's scary to think that we will eventually be all burnt steaks!
The cause of global warming is of course the climate change and we all know that, don't we? We also all know that most of the reasons why this is happening is because of human activities like deforestation, landfills, over fishing, gas emissions, improper waste disposal, pollution and even over population. But I wonder, do we also know that we need to stop those or else, this planet might come to an end? Just a thought.
Parts of Texas are starting to see so much rain that we can’t handle much more of it back in my hometown. The weather is getting crazy everywhere and it makes me want to cry thinking about it. Why is nobody concerned about the global warming tempatures? What are ways to not think about it all the time, because I have lost sleep over it.
I am a small government type, that doesn't want any government action to fix much of anything. If I decided to make climate change my pet project, what could I do? Most of the conversation seems to be about 'Climate change is real so government should do X'. This turns me off and I'm looking for alternatives.
I consider myself a primary thinker. The consensus doesn't move me. I have contrarian opinions on things with greater that 97% consensus. Quantum mechanics is probably a decent parallel. I researched QM interpretations, and experiments, and the philosophies of the people who designed and interpreted the experiments, then came to my own conclusions. Most of the climate change conversation seems to be about consensus and debunking the debunkers. This turns me off and I am looking for alternatives.
