    Can Nature be a work in progress if it goes in cycles? Either it is a work in progress and has yet to be determined where it will finish or it is set and goes in cycles.

    In the past you have claimed it goes in cycles and therefore climate change is just a part of one of these cycles.

    Now you are saying it is a work in progress which means climate change created by man is part of the work in progress.

    Which is it?

    Cheers 🙂

    Once again we see how mankind’s activities can effect the planet. First we speed up climate change and now we are destroying the ecosystem by wiping out the insects.

    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/world/2019/02/catastrophic-collapse-plunging-insect-numbers-threaten-survival-of-mankind.html

    Insect numbers are collapsing around the world, which could cause the “catastrophic collapse of nature’s ecosystems” and threaten “the survival of mankind”.

    The first global scientific meta-analysis, published in the journal Biological Conservation, looked at 73 studies conducted around the world. And the results were disturbing.

    The main cause has been blamed on agricultural intensification, and the use of pesticides and herbicides.

    “That means the elimination of all trees and shrubs that normally surround the fields, so there are plain, bare fields that are treated with synthetic fertilisers and pesticides,” Mr Sánchez-Bayo told The Guardian.

    “Industrial-scale, intensive agriculture is the one that is killing the ecosystems.”

    As Hero has historically used Snopes to justify his myopic world views this C & P is particularly pertinent;

    She also discovered Snopes was being paid by Facebook, which she felt was “really gross,” as the two companies “have completely different missions.” The fact that Snopes employees are disgusted over Facebook’s apparent disinterest in the facts seems ironic in and of itself, considering Snopes itself has repeatedly come under fire for being ill-equipped to discern facts from lies due to apparent biases.

    Most recently, Snopes’ fact-checking of a vaccine injury report by former CBS correspondent Sharyl Attkisson got an “F,” as they were clearly going to great lengths to simply discredit the report and not actually looking at the factual basis behind it.

    According to Attkisson, “[T]he Snopes article debunks claims that were never made and uses one-sided references as its sources — other propagandists — without disclosing their vaccine industry ties.”14 The fact of the matter is, Snopes engages in massive censorship of natural health, and promotes industry talking points regardless of what the scientific reality is.

    When the foregoing is considered along with this historic comment it becomes readily apparent that MSM ( in its many forms ) is no bastion of truth.

    Not sure what your post relates to.

    Is it a cut and paste from an anti vaccine website trying to discredit their dis-creditation?

    What has the attachment got to do with this given there is no proof that Rothchild’s ever owned Reuters and that claim seems to be a part of the one world Zionist conspiracy theory.

    How does it relate to global warming?

    Cheers 🙂

    Everything you’ve been told about global warming, climate change and carbon dioxide by the mainstream media — and mainstream “science” — is an outright lie. Far from being a dangerous poison, carbon dioxide is a miraculous life-giving nutrient that plants need to thrive.

    Since the “Experts” can’t agree then how are we as Laymen supposed to know what is right or wrong??

    Supergold CO2 yes in the right circumstances can do good re plant life BUT when in abundance and it mixes with O in the atmosphere a chemical reaction takes place and it becomes Carbon monoxide a very poisonous gas that is destroying the natural  barriers  that have been for generations in the atmosphere  which sheltered the earth from extreme weather conditions.

    Sorry supergold  you have got it ALL wrong and climate change  real and is in the planet NOW.  It is as Jacinta said todays generations nuclear threat although sadly a lot more dangerous than nuclear

    The negative affect of  too much CO2 in the atmosphere ( mostly from burning oil )  is now affecting many many parts of the globe  ( particularly  central africa ) in its food and other  productions, ie lack of rain/severe drought  due to climate change effects. This is a direct result of overload of CO2 in the atmosphere   which  has caused  once fertile land  for generations to become  barren waste land ….thus despite  having  no  to little impute into abundance of CO2 in the atmosphere  the poor residents of this land are now refugees desperately looking for somewhere to live and raise their families.
