Our changing planet: What will we do?

Houston.
Irma, Jose, Katia and more like them to follow.
Fires raging across the western U.S.
Second hottest year on record.
Global temperatures on the rise.

Obviously all this is telling us something, but what they're telling us is nothing new.  Scientists have seen this coming for decades.  What have the largest, most wealthy countries done about it?  Not much.

So what do we do now?  Throw up our hands, gnash our teeth, jump off a cliff?  Or be sensible and start acting?

What will we do now?
We're living on the edge of something big. It's a fantastic time in history to be alive.

    China seems to have gotten the message. I think China will be leading the charge for sure.... because they no longer have a choice. Whatever the reason, though, it is great that China is suddenly making this a priority (or so it seems), because no other country would have as big a global impact on this kind of change.

    I've heard a little about that- would like to know more.  I hope it's true!

    Reminds me of a conversation I had with the FIL

    FIL "We can't compete with China because they don't have any regulations on their pollution.  It's an unfair playing field."
    me "Have you heard of the Paris Agreement?"
    FIL "no, never heard of it"

    Of course this was in August, shortly after tRump announced the US would be withdrawing from said agreement.

    Yeah, The Rump pulling out of the Paris agreement-- a quintessential f up by a major climate denier.  And that agreement is a bit weak in the first place.  We need more!

    China wants to have all there autos run on electric by 2040.  That IS impressive.

    Certainly better than running them all on gas but how many more coal burning power plants will need to be added to make this happen?  I hope they are also considering things like walkable communities, ride sharing and public transportation.   I hope we are too!

    Nothing comes for free. All power generation comes with an environmental cost. Some more than others, of course; sometimes far more. But hydroelectric power generation ends up with disruptions to the river ecosystems. No free rides here.

    Well considering China is leading the charge on alternative energy production and investment, I don't see how it is a "GREAT counterpoint"? Yea, it wouldn't be very helpful if they replaced gas cars with electric cars powered by coal power plants, but that's not at all the case.

    They are actually focusing a lot more on solar power, but hydro power is definitely a factor too, along with wind power. Brian, yes, China has FINALLY realized that coal power isn't going to work for them moving forward.

    For sure. This is why I'm not gung ho about hydro power. I mean, I'm not against it either, but it's not a catch all source. It only really works well in certain places IMO... plus with climate change, water is becoming more and more scarce. I don't think hydro is a power source that nations should be developing. On the contrary. We should be starting to move away from it whenever possible. Solar and wind power is where it's at. They are both literally unlimited power sources that climate change isn't going to impact (well, maybe for wind power, depending on the location, but there will always be other locations where it is a guaranteed source). But certainly not solar). I also would like to be pro-nuclear power but of course the safety issues need to be sorted out better first. Oh, and fuel cell technology is still expanding.

    Straight from Wikipedia because I'm lazy: "China is the world's leading country in electricity production from renewable energy sources, with over double the generation of the second-ranking country, the United States.[citation needed] In 2013 the country had a total capacity of 378 GW of renewable power, mainly from hydroelectric and wind power. China's renewable energy sector is growing faster than its fossil fuelsand nuclear power capacity."

    I put emphasis on the growth part more than the fact that they are the current leading producer of alternative energy.

    China also just built the biggest solar power farm on the face of the planet and is building solar power faster than any other nation by far. They increased their solar power infrastructure by 25% this year alone.

    Wind farms also have their problems, with impacts on birds. Maybe there are other impacts that I'm not aware of, also. Like I said, nothing comes for free, though some modalities have fewer costs than others.

    Wind farms and nuclear power stations are responsible each for between 0.3 and 0.4 fatalities per gigawatt-hour (GWh) of electricity while fossil-fuelled power stations are responsible for about 5.2 fatalities per GWh

    The biggest impact of wind farms that I've heard of related to humans (sure they can kill birds and bats, but I doubt nearly as many as pollution does!). Those who live near them have complained about what's been dubbed "wind turbine syndrome". Some are skeptical about this, but.... Anyway, the solution to this is to not build wind farms next to homes. As for the aesthetics of the turbines... I actually think wind farms are cool looking. Obviously other disagree with me. And yeah, an unblemished vista is nicer, but hell, I'll take a wind farm on the horizon over a coal power plant or the complete death of our planet any day, right? http://science.howstuffworks.com/environmental/green-science/wind-turbines-health.htm

    True again,  although technically not even bicycles are free from some environmental impact- mining, production energy, etc.
    but still next to walking, lowest on the energy consumption for travel.

    China also just built the biggest solar power farm on the face of the planet and is building solar power faster than any other nation by far. They increased their solar power infrastructure by 25% this year alone.
    Even this comes with a price.  Giant solar panel fields alter the environment over which they are installed causing much imbalance to that  ecosystem.

    I think the best solution is to use less energy, consume less, and for humans to reproduce in fewer numbers.

    This post has been brought to you by the words "less" and "fewer".  :smile:

    I'll take a few birds smacking into a turbine over blowing the tops off of mountains

    I would agree if the number of birds lost was small but the Audubon Society (  http://www.audubon.org/news/will-wind-turbines-ever-be-safe-birds , among other sources) say that as many as 328,000 birds are killed each year in North America by wind turbines.  There are some efforts to reduce those numbers but that really is a lot. 

    Removing mountain tops is certainly a big problem too.  Here's an excellent book on that subject:
