Stopping Greenhouse Gas

There are basically three things you have to do to stop greenhouse gas emissions.

  1. Stop burning fossil fuels including coal, oil, natural gas, gasoline and methane which emit CO₂.
  2. Stop using synthetic fertilizers which emit nitrous oxide, a greenhouse gas 296 times more potent than CO₂.
  3. Convert to a largely plant based diet. Livestock fart methane, a greenhouse gas 25 times more potent than CO₂.

Survival is not mandatory. The last time, 3 million years ago, when CO₂ levels were 400 ppm (what they are now), average temperatures were 8.0°C (14.4°F) higher than today and the seas were 40 metres (43.74 yards) higher than today. It looks like mankind has decided cutting emissions is more onerous that flooding the world’s coastal cities river deltas not to mention the freakish weather.
