Thanks China
Mr. Purple Cat Esq. - 2013-07-25
Currently USAs carbon emissions per person are *over 5 times* greater than Chinas, about 5 times the global average and well over twice as high as european emissions.

If you want to know whos responsible for climate change than look at how much carbon a country has released in total. USA and UK are at the top

Great book btw. And its free!!

Mr. Purple Cat Esq. - 2013-07-25
Also a large amount of Chinas emissions (dont have any figures to hand for his tho) are as a result of manufacturing goods for US and Europe anyway.

chumbucket - 2013-07-25
I'm just thinking ahead with that comment.

Mr. Purple Cat Esq. - 2013-07-25
China have been researching and investing *a lot* in sustainable energy recently. They make most countries look pretty bad in that regard.

Mr. Purple Cat Esq. - 2013-07-25
Unless maybe the comment was not sarcastic... That did not even cross my mind :)

SteamPoweredKleenex - 2013-07-25
They're doing so, though in order to have that happen, they had to have huge populations living in toxic stews (Bejing) before it was seen as a problem.

And this is still a country that regularly allows things like lead to be used in consumer products. Just ask anyone in China why nearly everyone buys their family teacups and related dishes in Taiwan, and why buying Chinese ceramic vessels that have red pigmentation kills you even faster than the other colors.

China sounds like a libertarian paradise.

Mr. Purple Cat Esq. - 2013-07-25
@SPW
Yes totally, but those things are not related to carbon emissions and climate change. Which is arguably the biggest threat we are facing atm as a species* You made a logical fallacy!!!! :)

*There are a load of other lesser ones including all kinds of toxins in various places. Read 'Collapse' by Jared Diamind to hear about some more.

It looks like the CO2 is coming from Santa Claus

Thanks, everyone who outsourced manufacturing to China.

Neat!

Summer in the south is hot enough as is
EvilHomer - 2013-07-25
Well why are you still living there?

Sometimes in life, we need a little kick in the pants to get ourselves motivated, and a mean global temperature increase of two or three degrees might be just the CHANGEportunity you're waiting for!

Come on up to Canada.

Time to move to Greenland.
SteamPoweredKleenex - 2013-07-25
I'd wait until all that pesky ice is finally cleared away so you don't have to pack a shovel.

Koda Maja - 2013-07-25
That won't be long.

Remember snow? Well, you're going to have to.
memedumpster - 2013-07-25
Snow doesn't stick to the ground here anymore, it hasn't in years. Last Winter I was thinking how kids now will grow up to tell their kids how when they were young you had to catch snowflakes before they hit the ground and melted. Their kids will ask what snow is. Only I will remember blizzards.

Jet Bin Fever - 2013-07-25
What I hate is that the denier assholes use massive snowfall events as evidence that everything is A-OK climate-wise, while ignoring that they are erratic and unprecedented in a lot of places. While, much of the country fails to get even a light dusting of snow where we used to get a good couple of inches each couple weeks in the winter.

Meerkat - 2013-07-25
What I always find amusing is that I have no kids and I do a fuckload more for the environment than people that do have kids.

I'm trying to preserve the world for other peoples' kids while they leave their truck running out in the front street while they come in to have drinks for 4 hours.

No worries. The planet will be around a lot longer than we will.

Carbon dioxide is a conspiracy made up by scientists. Have you ever actually SEEN a carbon dioxide?
Seven Arts/H8 Red - 2013-07-25
I haven't seen a carbon die, and don't call me Oxide.

Nominal - 2013-07-25
I actually witnessed a pro-lifer using that argument. She knew fetuses had souls and to prove it "Do you think DNA exists? Have you ever actually seen DNA? Then how do you KNOW it exists?"

Thanks, OBAMA!

Hey! I saw this in my Astrobiology class! He did mention we are overdue for a mass extinction on this planet

I'm okay with all of this. By the time I'm ready to retire the northeast is going to be a fucking paradise. I love palm trees and year round golf.
animegurl1000 - 2013-07-25
Might have to wait a couple of decades to see how the climactic shift plays out. The Northeast could become the new Tornado Alley for all we know.

sasazuka - 2013-07-25
Hopefully, there will be some effective form of geoengineering in effect by then. Not that I'm against carbon reductions, but even if carbon emissions went down to zero tomorrow, that won't remove the carbon dioxide already in the atmosphere that will be there for centuries, so, at some point, people will have to get used to the idea of geoengineering, if just to reverse the geoengineering we have already done to the planet unintentionally with carbon dioxide.
dairyqueenlatifah - 2013-07-25
We'll be too busy trying to hide from all the hurricanes and tornadoes to get things to this point this fast.

Sorry I meant to 3 star this. A 10 second animation? It's over before you cant quint and read the tiny ass scale in the corner.
misterbuns - 2013-07-25
21st century will be the last century of humans. Fitting. We're a kid who got drunk and killed himself in a car crash on the night of his 21st century. Like a brilliant comedian who overdoses and dies young, the rest of the cosmos will go "such a shame. he had such potential" but nobody will really be surprised.
animegurl1000 - 2013-07-25
It makes me wonder if greenhouse gases are the eventual fate for most sentient aliens. A species evolves and spends a few millennia spreading about their planet, then discover fossil fuel and live fat and happy off of that for a century or two before they cook themselves to death.

Mister Yuck - 2013-07-26
This isn't going to make us extinct. It will merely kill billions.

PoeTV 2030 will have a lot of videos from conspiracy nuts about how snow was never real and it's just a government plot to make you think the world is changing.

You can't get me madder than talking about the goddamn ambivalence most people feel about global warming
