oh great smug one…how was he defending the planet when he said ‘we are running out of water on Earth’
He was just waving his arms in panic…just as he has been taught.
Why don’t you give some specifics ?
Check it out in Science and tech….
Our planet is as healthy today as it has ever been in billions of years….
What does that even mean, the Earth has been through major changes since it’s formation.
Are you saying that it’s as healthy now as when it was a ball of molten rock and nothing could live on it?
Are you saying it’s as healthy as it was when it had a reducing atmosphere that could only support anaerobic simple life?
How about during the snowball phase when ice probably covered the planet to the equator and then fluctuated to a very hot phase as CO2 levels skyrocketed due to the lack of exposed rock and ocean to remove it from the atmosphere?
How about some of the Extinction Level Events that have come very close to wiping all complex life off the planet like the Permian extinction where up to 95% of species were eliminated. That was most likely due to changes in the atmosphere from intense volcanic activity in what is now Siberia that caused a spike in CO2 and sulfur dioxide in the atmosphere similar to conditions we’re creating today. That happened over hundreds of thousands of years, what is likely to happen as we make significant changes like this in centuries or even decades.
There’s no question that man is having a dramatic impact on the Earth that threatens clean water availability, species diversity, stable climate and global energy balances that can and probably will have catastrophic effects in the mid to long term.
Just because we’re not all dropping dead at the moment doesn’t mean that what we’re doing is safe, just that the true results can take some time to appear due to inertia in the system.
