Okay, so, how do I start this post? Global climate change is a real thing. That’s it. That’s all I have. Frankly, I do not understand people’s arguments saying that it does not exist. That is how I will continue this post; addressing other people’s unfortunate opinion on something that is real.
A recent argument against climate change that I have heard is that the Earth experiences cooling and warming cycles and we are currently on a warming cycle. Okay, cool! You know something about the earth. But! Did you know that these cycles coincide with the levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere? Did you also know that carbon dioxide levels have never been this high before? Did you know that our current carbon dioxide level in the atmosphere is about 400 parts per million and is still rising? Did you also know that the last largest peak occurred about 300,000 years ago and was only about 290 ppm. Now I am not going to sit here and blast facts at whoever may be reading this, just know that those who claim that this climate change is just a part of Earth’s process are both wrong and right. Yes, warming is a natural part of Earth’s natural process, but not to this extent.
Another argument against climate change is that it is going to cost us a bunch of money to try to live clean. In reality, it will not cost as much as we spend now and will save us a bunch of money in the long run. And after it’s all said and done, the cost of producing 1 kilowatt hour of electricity will only be 1.8 cents more than what it is now. Furthermore, by adopting a carbon capture plan earlier, we would have reduced carbon emissions by 80%.
