Imagine GMO crop that depends more water, in turn creating drought, perhaps humans are victims to their own self proclaimed manmade problems, right?


I get it….it’s a business, do you really think that businesses could flourish “if they made the perfect crop?” By business I mean companies like Monsanto. Remember corporations never really account for all the consequences, that what lawyers are for. They are never on the customer side. It’s all for profit ;)

The entire bible is a story of humanity creating their own problems because we have a different view of what a good life is. That is, instead of being part of nature, we manipulate it to meet our desires.

Advancing technology always brings about the next more challenging problem to overcome. GMOs aren't uniquely "bad" in this regard. Everything is a genetically modified organism. That is the entire point of selection; promoting the characteristics of the thing that is desired. The fact that it can more precisely be done through engineering isn't a problem by itself. Done well, a lot of benefit can be realized. After all, the world is capable of being fed precisely because of engineered food. That isn't to say it's without negative consequence, but not dying of starvation seems to be worth those downsides.

As far as climate crisis goes, I always ask people to point to the metric of global human well-being that is in decline. GDP per capita, life expectancy, infant mortality, starvation, poverty... every criteria imaginable is improving and people say the sky is falling.

it’s true that we have come a long as a society, it boils down to individual motivation. It would have been great however, if there weren’t ways for both sides to be exploited negatively for personal gain with little to no regard of the impact it has on the entire ecosystem

Can’t speak to if there’s a crisis but know from personal experience and historic data tracking. The weather has tilted in the extreme where I live.

Our location hasn’t had a so called drought since I’ve been alive. The only time such a word and condition was ever stated was more than 100 years plus.

Summer of 2021 was the longest and hottest ever recorded. Never seen days, never mind weeks of 40-45’C temperatures here in the cold ass North. Our winters span 6-8 months out of the year and the mercury holds steady at -25’C ~ -48’C before the wind chill.

The Winter of 2021 and spring 2022 had more snow ever recorded since 1887?

Regardless, you see places which never get very hot like the UK. You see places like Arizona where it’s always hot but now it’s hot day & night.

As the other member noted Lake Meade. That image isn’t a joke being able to see things that haven’t seen daylight for 50 years!

If you go across the globe in the Middle East those poor fuckers are seeing 50 - 58’C temperatures all month long?!?

The next and greatest war is coming and it comes down to water. Several countries have been actively using desalination for decades think Israel / Arab nations. A few American States have the same because there’s simply isn’t enough fresh water to provide the consumer.

Arizona just past some kind of regulation / law that will see all grass removed. Makes perfect sense you live in the desert for fuck sakes don’t pretend to be somewhere else!

All I can say is people / man better start looking around and open their eyes. Because there isn’t going to be a nice planet to be on never mind depend on.

One only needs to see what the stupid Japs are doing. Millions of litres of radioactive waste is literally being poured into the ocean! Stupid cunts say Well the earth is so big and ocean so deep the PPM won’t matter and have zero health issues???

Really???

As it relates to GMO anyone who’s 50 and older can literally count on one hand how many 12 year old girls had tits. You can also go back in time and see the mean average height of humans was no where even close to where it is now!

Anyone who has ever seen the movie Super Size Me understands what is being put into our foods is directly impacting why 12 year old girls are all sporting a 36D cup!

Asian’s taller than 5’6”?!?

When you see people who are naturally short. Now millions all breaking 5’10” as the mean average?!? That isn’t because of good genes when mom and dad are all 5’2” - 5’6”!

Some idiots running around in circles, screaming and frantically waving their hands around in the air does not make the temperatures and ever changing weather patterns remain the same. Our weather patterns and temperatures here on earth have never been stable. It has been much warmer before. It has been much cooler before. It has been much drier before. It has been much wetter before. Many parts of the world used to be under water. Many parts of the world used to be on dry land.

It isn't a crisis, except only in their fragile minds. We need to quit buying into their mental illnesses and keep enjoying life, instead of trying to stop something that has never stopped before nor will it ever stop changing, just to appease the mentally challenged.

If we issued IQ tests like we did covid tests, we would have a worldwide pandemic of fucking dumbasses on our hands, thinking they could stop the weather changing.

I say again, you don't measure global warming on the number of sensational anecdotes the so-called news throws at you. Traditional news is dead because the money is in clicks, and you won't click unless it's a doomsday story. Nobody clicks on the article that says "today 100,000 people were lifted from poverty, just like every day". Nobody clicks on the news story saying the earth is undergoing unprecedented greening. Would you click something that says "tomorrow will be like today, but marginally better"?

That's not a denial of a changing climate, and some of those changes manifesting in negative ways. It's only to point out the obvious, that there's no money or opportunity for a power grab by proclaiming things are pretty good, and might be getting a bit better over time. You think you could get a research grant to study the positive outcomes of global warming? They'd label you a "denier" for even being interested in such a field of study.

I say F all the so-called news. Actual news is you go somewhere and report on what you find, not retweeting what some anonymous source heard as a rumor. Bunch of lazy dimwits sitting on Macbooks at a coffee shop "newsing".

True and to add on, miraculous 12” inch d**ks
