Should Climate Change be a priority?

Debate Information

Hi!

We just saw a major power outage in Texas because of severe weather. Yes, no one was ready for this freezing weather. At the same time, we noticed there is a snowfall in the desserts of KSA and Jerusalem. Why isn't climate change our priority? We sent a mission to Mars but don't you think we would convert our planet Earth into Mars very soon?

    You cannot blame every natural disaster on humans' actions. There is no reason to believe that the severe weather in Texas has anything to do with any systematic changes in the climate. Weather is unstable, and extreme temporary changes happen in all regions of the world all the time.

    From the larger perspective, human ingenuity knows no bounds, and solutions to immediate problems are always found by someone. As I see it, should humanity change the planet to the point where our lives become endangered, countless solutions will be found by engineers and scientists, long before the danger becomes significant.
    It does not mean that climate cannot be changed long before that happened for our benefit; of course it can. It might be quite beneficial to start looking into ways in which the climate can be artificially made to be more stable, mild and so on. As it stands, Earth's climate overall is a pretty poor fit for humanity, with most regions being unpleasantly cold, and with some being unbelievably hot.
    But should it be a priority? I do not think so. A priority should be, as I see it, automatization and AI development. These are the most promising venues for enhancing our quality of life dramatically. It would be great to automatize almost everything in our lives, so we could focus on enjoying life and thinking about further progress and forgo all the physical labor which we still have to do. Something as small as a robot that cooks for a household can be life-changing to many families, and such robots are not nearly as far away from our reach as changing climate of the entire planet.

    Climate change is the foremost priority.But still, humans don't seem to care for it.Because of the people's lack of ability to think on long term basis.Like most of the time, industries cut firewood in masses without caring about anything as they want money and money(greed) is their priority,today each day million gallons of fossil fuel is burnt so as to run mechanic engines and so on,because it is convenient for people to get their cars refueled on gas stations. Thus today we are facing many things like rising water levels because of melting polar ice caps and also now it is affecting city areas.Earth is meant for humanity but humanity is not meant for Earth ig so.

    Earth climate is poor fit for humanity lol. Humans were formed on earth and you are saying the climate is poor fit,if that was a case then till know humanity would have become extinct.Earth has best climatic conditions in whole solar system for humanity,if you don't want to believe me then see this:-

    Average temperature of Mars- Minus 62 degrees Celsius
    Venus-465 degrees Celsius
    Mercury-365 degree Celsius
    Jupiter-Minus 145 degree Celsius
    Uranus-Minus 195 Celsius
    Saturn-Minus 178 degree Celsius
    Neptune- Minus 200 degree Celsius

    I think now you are pretty smart to figure out if Earth is sustainable for Humanity or not.

    Let's discuss!
    Its amazing how global warming causes so much freezing weather.
  • Right now, Covid19 is our number one priority.

    I used to think so, but I don't trust the state not to use this to oppress us.

    Yes, it is global warming that makes unpredictable weather. Sudden freezing isn't normal and there are also chances of extremely hot weather right after these cold days. Probably, climate change is the right answer.

    It should be but I am noticing that Covid-19 cases are decreasing rapidly and people are getting natural immunity against it.

    Actually, relatively sudden freezing temperatures are normal.  You see, that's what happens when a winter storm passes through.  It'd be better if you relied on the science as opposed to your own personal feelings concerning the weather.  

    In 1895 a storm brought 20 inches of snow to Texas on Valentine's Day.
    In the winter of 1899, Texas saw 23 degrees.
    Again in 1933 Texas saw temperatures well below freezing.
    In February of 1960, Texas received over 4" of snow.  

    And yes as storms pass, new weather fronts move through making it warmer again.  This is nothing new.  There is nothing new under the sun.  Even the paranoia and hysteria we see in today's liberals isn't a new phenomena.  There is nothing new under the sun.
