    Cam could you ask Lori if we're really this far down the hole?

    Oxygen levels in some tropical regions have dropped by a startling 40 percent in the last 50 years, some recent studies reveal. Levels have dropped more subtly elsewhere, with an average loss of 2 percent globally.
    acket.

    If you can't trust scientific american, who can you trust?!?!?!

    I am a believer of climate change, I think the data is clear. However, like I said before, what's less clear is what's the real cause and how can we fix it.

    Take this oxygen level issue in the ocean for example, will reducing green house gases really help enough?

    We could be sacrificing billions of dollars trying to reduce greenhouse gases with a global effort, but the ocean could still be fucked because of other pollutants we dump into the ocean.

    Plants only produce about 30% of our overall oxygen, it's the ocean that generates 70% of oxygen. We can be reducing as much CO2 as we can, but if the ocean is truly screwed and can't create enough O2 by converting CO2, we'll still be left in a hot greenhouse all the while trying hard to reduce CO2 further in a futile effort.

    Scientists now need to come up with as many possible solutions as they can. Surely there's isn't just ONE way like Jesus is the only way in order to solve this complex problem. Of all possible solutions to try, we'll try the one's with least public resistance 1st. Waiting for humanity to reach a global consensus is also unrealistic.

    Yes, Mario, we are that far down the hole.

    This is hogwash; propaganda from the fossil fuel industry that has a financial interest in subverting climate science. My wife is a climate scientist, legit. Greenhouse gas emissions from burning fossil fuels is the cause of anthropogenic climate change. Seriously. It is a scientific consensus among her peers. Really and for true.

    Cutting greenhouse gas emissions is the only way to attempt fixing it. Yes, it needs to be fixed.
