The human can not drive climate change.

As if punching all those machine learning models through the GPU pipelines wouldn’t co-leading contribute to climate change effects. You’re heating up the planet with your supercomputing and blockchaining more than the biggest combustion motor could. lol

The human can not drive climate change.

I considered basing my positions on decades of decades of scientific examination and the results which make it totally clear that human driven climate change is a real and dangerous issue. But then I read, “The human can not drive climate change” and changed my mind. Thanks, tinawatanabe.

You're welcome, Express sister.

Your "scientific" examination is such as iceberg is melting and the water level is increasing?

More rain means cooler temperatures.

-8 ( +1 / -9 )

More rain means cooler temperatures.

Are you suggesting the rainiest place on the planet is the coolest? If so, I think you'd be very wrong.

3 ( +5 / -2 )

Are you saying the least rainiest place on the planet is the hottest? If so, I think you'd be very wrong.

I didn't say anything. You said "More rain means cooler temperatures". I still don't understand. Could you explain?

Your "scientific" examination is such as iceberg is melting and the water level is increasing?

Among other things, it was, yeah. But then you said, with no evidence, "The human can not drive climate change", and so I changed my mind completely.

The decades of evidence and complete consensus in the scientific community became unimportant to me.

Because you said "The human can not drive climate change". And that statement (note it isn't an argument because there is no evidence that supports it and there is a literal entire field of science that factually demonstrates the exact opposite) changed my mind.

I considered the decades of research, peer-reviewed studies, and observable facts of the world, but then you said "actually no", and I changed my mind.

So thanks, again.

'When it rains and my shirt gets damp I feel a little chilly, I imagine the earth feels much the same.'

I presume that this is his logic.

It never ceases to amaze me how, in the face of scientific evidence, some people still claim we have not had any impact on our climate.

I sincerely hope this was a poor attempt at irony Tina.

Have you ever heard of Archimedes' Principle?

The decades of evidence

The Earth's history is more than decades.

-4 ( +0 / -4 )

Have you ever heard of Archimedes' Principle?

Yeah.

The Earth's history is more than decades.

Yeah. But industrialization is only about 150 years old, and the science of climate change has only been around for a few decades. I'm glad to have had the opportunity to teach you this.
