We're not even shitting the right way
Toilet paper is getting less sustainable, researchers warn
We could poo into methane generators. (C) Tina Turner in mad max 3.
Power to the poop: one Colorado city is using human waste to run its vehicles
Fracking is the answer to the power shortfall mate.
The human race may be doomed but the planet certainly is not. More than 95% of the species that have ever existed are extinct. One the last human is gone the earth will slowly start to recover until it reaches peak diversification again.
I reckon were doomed. Doomed.
True. Doesn't stop them being wrong.
If we plant more trees (instead of cutting them down) we might, just might, be able to pull this round.
Aye we're an hour ahead here, gone midnight already it's not looking good. Will keep in touch.
No we're done sadly. It's now no longer overly dramatic to say the Human Race only has a century or two. Almost all scientists share that view.
Quite amazing when you think that we have basically fucked it.
Planet will be ok, it's the large mammals that will be fucked.
There has always been beer. It has been suggested that making beer led to the change from hunter gatherer to settled farming societies. Those neolithic hangovers must have been brutal.
Cockroaches, plankton, rats, ants, spiders etc. have survived worse than global warming.
They are not banned from pubs. You can still get them. but they will have to be asked for by the customer and not available just to take out of a dispencer off the bar/service area.
Yes, we are mainly selfish bastards and always have been
We will do fuck all as a species.
Bearing in mind plastic has only been around for about 100 years and the effect it’s already having. It’s the blink of an eye in ecological terms.
There's no doubt we're in a tight spot........
As a nation I think we're not doing too badly - but anything we do will not matter much unless the countries with really big populations change their priorities - China, India, Russia, USA.
I learned a horrific fact the other day that an area of rainforest equivalent to a football pitch is being lost every minute (or was it every second?).
However I also learned that the oceanic phytoplankton absorb way more CO2 than the rainforests do.
Therein lies the problem. Overeducated fools with a sneering contempt for anyone that disagrees. Overpopulation is the problem mate, not Elsie from Pallion putting her cans in the wrong coloured bin.
Yes, we are.
But warming, increasingly acidic seas (more dissolved CO2) are inhibiting their growth cycles.
