Carbon capture, land management, conservation, food choice... loads to really discuss.

.. I almost agree with you.
Because it seems Homo sapiens is hell bent on on 'business as usual' - i.e. look for and consume even more geological sequestered carbon.
And if that happens there will be "nothing" we can do - dangerous and damaging climate change will be inevitable

I totally support being environmentally responsible and practice/encourage recycling. I also believe we should use resources in an ecologically-friendl
y manner. What I do not support are the extreme and radical views of those who wish to ban the use of all fossil fuels. Living by the precautionary principle is dangerous and regressive. People ( I mean that respectfully) need to understand that fossil fuel feedstock brings more than fuel to the table.

.. but you are not looking at the evidence. The precautionary principle has had its day. Now we know for certain we ARE altering the climate; and not for the better. And the longer the science-deniers and politicians ignore the peer reviewed evidence the worse it will become.

Yes I do know 'fossil fuel feedstock brings more than fuel to the table'. In fact it brings us most of our food, directly or indirectly. But that doesn't alter the fact that we are, knowingly, rushing at ever-increasing speed towards a ecological and human catastrophe by pumping ever increasing quantities of CO2e into the atmosphere and oceans.

I don’t think oil burning and climate change are linked. You see, there is sloppy science and there is definitive science – and sloppy science jumps to conclusions and the other doesn't. Trouble is, sloppy science followers vastly outnumber the others so we all have pretend to be sloppy just to be sociable. Anyway, it doesn’t do much harm to look for better energy sources now – oil won't last for ever.

FF I respect your views but disagree. Many ( and I do not need to list ) credible individuals are "deniers". Why is it made to sound like holocaust? There is no definitive proof. It is consensus. Consensus = reach for your wallet.
