We can't control the climate no more could the Anataszi  whom had to face what was called The Great Drought (1276-1299) This could be a repeat.

Of course we can, to an extent.  WE have created, and are exacerbating, the climate change going on.  Science is almost unanimous that it is man-made, specifically due largely to our burning fossil fuels.  We KNOW how to combat this, mitigate its effect, and minimize to damage, now and in the long-term.  
 

It is those people, like you, who say they acknowledge that it is happening, but that man is not responsible and cannot do anything about it.  You all refuse to do small things on your individual end to make a teeny difference, and support idiotic demagogic politicians who don’t want to do anything either, and deny this outright.  THIS is the problem; we CAN do what the Anazasi and others in the greater southwest and northern Mexico  were not able to do.  So to keep insisting and  saying we’re not causing it and can do nothing about it, because it had happened many times in the earth ‘s history, is the most misguided, stupid and dangerous position to take.

Quite odd there was a notable  GLOBAL reduction of emissions during the 2020 Covid-19 shutdown. For the first time in YEARS all the major cities in China was smog free.  If it has that big of an  impact then why we don't see some results from it?

It's because the large scale temperature studies are based on averages taken over years and decades.  One dip in a year isn't going to move the needle much.   These are longer-term trends, not year-to-year.

Morning Update: EU unveils climate plan to reduce emissions by 55 per cent
 

KATHRYN MANNIE 

 
Good morning, 
 
European Union policy-makers on Wednesday unveiled an ambitious plan to tackle climate change, aiming to turn green goals into concrete action this decade and set an example for the world’s other big economies to follow. 
 
The European Commission, which represents the bloc’s 27 countries, pushed forward its plan in an effort to meet its collective goal to reduce net greenhouse gas emissions by 55 per cent from 1990 levels by 2030 – a step toward “net zero” emissions by 2050. 
 
Measures include raising the cost of emitting carbon for heating, transport and manufacturing, taxing high-carbon aviation fuel and shipping fuel that have not been taxed before, and charging importers at the border for the carbon emitted in making products such as cement, steel and aluminum abroad. It will consign the internal combustion engine to history. 
 
The “Fit for 55” measures will require approval by member states and the European parliament, a process that could take two years.

Re: Measures include raising the cost of emitting carbon for heating

And how exactly is this going to be achieved here, electricity is already too high for low income people to heat their homes.  Natural gas is the only ECONOMICAL solution.  Some use wood burning stoves to stay warm.

My local electric company just got it's 3% surcharge approved! :angry:

More and more people are cutting back on power just for heating / cooling because they can't afford it now!

Go ahead and print your emails, US forests have been growing for 50 years 

Even though there is a global decline of forested areas, it's on the increase in the United States.  Forest management simply make economical / environmental sense.

Environmentalists Destroyed California’s Forests

https://californiapolicycenter.org/environmentalists-destroyed-californias-forests/

Excerpt..Year after year, environmentalists litigated and lobbied to stop efforts to clear the forests through timber harvesting, underbrush removal, and controlled burns. ... Meanwhile, natural fires were suppressed and the forests became more and more overgrown.

 

In West Virginia brush fires are allowed to burn unless property is threaten.  Sometimes control burns are employed.  Had several brush fire here during the 2000's and the hills today are beautiful.

:huh:

"........A combination of extreme weather, climate change and environmental degradation have created the perfect storm – or rather, a series of eight cross-border sandstorms through March, April and May that have destroyed animal herds, exacerbated respiratory problems and cancelled flights in both Mongolia and China. The news video below captures the magnitude of this year's storms.......

The Gobi desert is also growing bigger. Desertification is creeping up into northern Mongolia at an average rate of 75 miles a year, according to Dulamsuren's institute.Part of the reason is climate change.

Temperatures in Mongolia have increased about 4 degrees Fahrenheit in the last 70 years, according to the Mongolian Ministry of Environment, about twice the rate of the recorded global average increase..........
