nothing. don't care.
as long as china and india are doing their thing nothing we do in the states matters. and corporations do far more to damage the earth than i could do on my best day. stop nestle from pillaging the earth water resources for 24 hours and i might give a shit.
Okay... but I don't think I was clear with my question. I'm not asking what you will do to stop climate change, I am asking what will you have to do because of climate change?
Texas folks got crazy rain and now some have flooded homes. For at least one OGer, this is the second time this has happened in two years where as prior to that it hadn't happened in the 20 years they've lived there. Accordingly, I would think if it happens again you probably have to make some notable changes to the property... or move.
So what might you have to do differently because of climate change?
This is part of the problem with the discussion. Something terrible happens and people automatically assume its "Climate Change" that caused it. Correlation does not imply causation. There is no proof that without "Climate Change" the heavy rains or floods wouldn't have still happened. This is also what turns the VAST majority of people away from such theories.
Half of what people imply is caused by "Climate Change" you would need some sort of time machine with the capability of visiting alternate realities to confirm. You would have to be able to prove that without Climate Change increased rains would stop. That doesn't mean that Climate Change doesn't cause increased rains only that if we stopped what causes Climate Change these things wouldn't happen.
Even with the worsing of storms, the temp rising and so on. These are all things that have happened repeatedly millions of times before humans ever existed. They have also done the reverse. I'm not denying "Climate Change" exists but we need to reign in what is fact and what are political talking points. We also have to be careful what we try to apply as being caused by "Climate Change". On a planetary scale its near impossible to prove "Without A, B would never happen." "B" might happen regardless. "B" might happen on a 10000 year cycle. There are 1001 reasons why "B" might happen despite "A" never existing.
I have always thought that we could dispense with the entire idea of "Climate Change" as it's too political. It's easier to attack "pollution" as everyone agree's they don't want pollution and it being one or maybe the single cause of "Climate Change" we can get behind curbing it. We can look at cities like LA and others in countries like China and India and see the smog build up where citizens need to wear masks so they don't develop black lung or whatever nasty diseases follow. Everyone wants clean oceans, clean air etc. It's something we can get behind and the greatest part the majority of how we curb it doesn't include absurd idea's like the "Green New Deal". I don't disagree that we need to move away from fossil fuels and create less of a carbon foot print. Those are actually great ideas I can support. We as humans have this problem of over complicating issues to the point it causes massive rifts in society. There are far better ways of going about it.
To your actual point, I won't have to do anything for "Climate Change" as I have not seen any data to suggest its the sole reason for the increase in bad weather phenomenon. If whats being suggested is actually true, there is no escaping it. You might be able to move to a less populated area but that will only last as long as others don't get the same idea.
