Climate change

Postby katie6 on December 29th, 2018, 10:45 pm 

Hello, I am looking for a climate scientist who can give me plain facts. I am trying to drum up interest in a grass roots movement with advertising but I don't want to put up incorrect information. Please would someone be willing to talk to me. Thank you for your time.

What you need is someone that is willing to answer your questions and provide their credentials. Preferably someone who has an advanced degree in earth science. Correct? Otherwise you are just going to get people looking up papers for you.

Correct, thank you. My plan is to have billboards with shocking facts like the religious right uses for prolife. However it also needs to be tied to a website with facts and an action plan. If I use facts I am not rock solid sure of then I can cause more harm than good. Thank you for any assistance you can give me.

The IPCC website is probably one of the best assemblages of information on this.

https://www.ipcc.ch/

If you are serious about mastering this subject, for any project, you will need to look at their 2018 report. Good luck.

Beliefs not formed on the basis of fact are not dissuaded by facts. This is why facts don't work.

Quite true , but poison is being dripped everyday. Some leavening can not hurt.

I like your optimism, something sorely needed now. And many people are uncertain what they can believe these days, and those people may be more open to any delivery system for solid evidence-backed facts.

Please just don't use any LED type billboards for at least two environmental reasons and you might end up with people calling you a hypocrite.

LOL. The first time in my life I have been called an optimist. I am an old grandmother. My youngest grandchild will be 18 in 2030. Closer to desperation.
No LED. Just replace a few of those Jesus is coming and prolife boards

Pretty much anywhere you are, there is or soon will be some destructive manifestation of climate change.
If you choose your venue carefully and do a little research, you can make your billboards prophetic. Then suggest an action they can take: provide a link to information on an alternative energy source, or building style or food production. (I have a few of those, if you want them.)

It's too late to stop now. Mitigation is going to be a pressing concern.
At uni I read environmental biology and ecology.
We had to hold emissions at pre 1975 levels. Of course, nobody in industry gave a crap about that.
Have you heard of the "tipping point"? Well, it tipped. From here on in, its all downhill for planet Earth.
Maybe when humans are gone it might recover.

Won’t work. Your energy focused elsewhere would be much more constructive for human society imo.

A more constrictive move would be to remove the existing billboards actually. Maybe change the county code. No one wants to see that garbage along the side of the road.
