Is this the new “ emergency” now Covid and Climate have run out of steam? The climate situation is an emergency, you absolute berk. 6 Vote up! Oh dear 0 Vote up! Are you genuiney a climate sceptic or just trolling? Are you a Flat Earther too? Be honest. 6 Vote up! The new emergency humankind faces is a world without the reassuring presence of Phil and Holly. 0 Vote up! runnersknee is risky, FFS dux don't be so easily baited. 1 Vote up! Genuinely a climate sceptic. Not as to the fact there is slight warming, just as to whether it is anthropogenic, or if it is to what extent. Perhaps curious is a better word. 0 Vote up! You are curious risky, this is true 0 Vote up! Risky, never knowingly getting it right. Imagine enjoying being wrong. It's a sickness. 1 Vote up! Love your pathological need to believe that everyone that disagrees with you is in fact only one person, Risky. 0 Vote up! No darling, just ideologues who step on rakes. 1 Vote up! I'm baited by fooking morons. Sorry my bad. 0 Vote up! Can anybody post anything in the public domain that explains why people should fret about AI? And I don’t mean some boreatron waffling on incoherently about gazillions of lawyers losing their jobs. 0 Vote up! no there is no fvcking “oh dear”, risky, there is no fvcking oh dear climate change is clearly, unambiguously and absolutely scientifically proven to be a real, pressing and terrifying threat to humanity now grow the fvck up or get in the ever-rising sea. 2 Vote up! “clim7 sceptic” is entirely inappropri7 sceptic implies too much rationality “clim7 crank” is probably most accur7 but 4 balance “religious clim7 denialist” is ok 0 Vote up! at times, the diceman approach 2 life is quite admirable “i don’t understand it it’s too complex there4 it’s wrong!!! now some1 put it in words of 1 sy lab ull or else i deny!!” prob achieves much 2bf 0 Vote up! To be clear, I’m a sceptic of AImageddon. But not of man made climate change, that’s a fact, and it’s a very fvcking real and severe one that’s coming to chew off your face now wise the fvck up. Time to round the doubters up, tbh 0 Vote up! Is it all man made or only a bit? 0 Vote up! the clim7 is not all man made, obviously, wot sort of a stupid point is that there r obviously man made impacts on the clim7, only a denialist moron of creationist variety would not b able 2 comprehend that, given it’s really basic science - if u emit greenhouse gases, there will b a greenhouse effect 0 Vote up! If the man made impact is small, is Net Zero a proportionate response, taking into account the (also) positive effects of higher temperatures and increased Co2? 0 Vote up! Wtf. 0 Vote up! Hard agree with laz Anyone denying the climate crisis is doing so purely to make themselves seem interesting (in their own eyes) in place of an actual personality See also anti-vaccers 2 Vote up! By laz I mean dux 0 Vote up! Laz, have you asked yer handler how many new coal power stations that China has opened in the past month? 0 Vote up! And laz tbf 0 Vote up! Absolute berk is so 3-ducks. 0 Vote up! Climate change isn't an emergency any more than terminal illness is. The end will happen no matter what you do so why wouldn't you try to make your final days pleasant? On ai, I think there's a small chance techbros are purposefully stoking the panic to big up their products. Although I am worried about it becoming the equivalents of global emp when we have to switch off all the computers. 0 Vote up! Climate change is a terminal illness....for the earth and everything (well most things, including Humans) on it 0 Vote up! Climate change isn't an emergency From the throbber who has a panic attack every time a small group of youths cross her path or the train station is a bit busy this is quite a take. 1 Vote up! Climate change isn't an emergency any more than terminal illness is. The end will happen no matter what you do so why wouldn't you try to make your final days pleasant? Jeez. So much wrongness in such a short space. 0 Vote up! it is all man made HTH 0 Vote up! AI is already yesterday's risk if today's slightly hyperbolic Times is to be believed: New regulations may be needed to prevent “mind-reading” technology being misused to reveal private thoughts, the information watchdog has said. A report from the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) says devices that can harvest information directly from the brain are set to become increasingly common. 0 Vote up! I love how you all kneejerk... But you know it's true. Whether you live in a cave until you die of natural causes without seeking carbony treatments for them or you continue your life exactly as it is, the outcome will be the same. You are one of 8bn. And apparently we have to fight population decline 🤣 0 Vote up! My private thoughts are usually about football So AI might learn something if it reads them 0 Vote up! "but you know it's true" Nope. The only thing I know is I want to leave a better world for my kids - in all aspects - and not some firey death ball 2 Vote up! Because I don’t have a future. Waaaaaaaah 0 Vote up! Davis will believe in any “emergency” that is pumped out bless him 0 Vote up! I reckon you were stimming out over the Y2K bug, no? 0 Vote up! "Davis" Oh, so this is Hanners. 0 Vote up! Yes it is risky, 3d Not sure why he doesn't want his imaginary kids to have a future 0 Vote up! The only risk to their future is net zero chump 0 Vote up! Go on I'll bite as I'm stuck on a train Explain your position wee risky 0 Vote up! Our pal risky seems to building up a new sockpuppet army for purposes only he knows but we also know too. 0 Vote up! Here you go: No flights no cows unaffordable energy unaffordable cars wind turbines chopping up birds, ruining the landscape, emitting a weird humming noise like you no meat Doesn’t sound great to me, when nobody knows whether it’s necessary or not 0 Vote up! The issue with climate change is very few are prepared to give up their own quality of life for the cause they claim to believe in. Most people on this board probably have a few overseas holidays a year, at least one (possibly 2) nice big engined cars etc etc...and will not be willing to do anything about it. But the little person driving the 15 year old diesel and their 10 days in Mallorca on Easyjet is the enemy. 0 Vote up! Refresh Back to board Join the discussion Login Register 0 Vote up!
