QUORA QUESTION #11

Posted on: June 12, 2021


QUESTION: Since humanity is currently going green to save the planet (renewable energies, electric cars, etc.), does that mean humanity is going to be forced to go vegan?

ANSWER:

(1): The planet doesn’t need saving and if it did, humans wouldn’t be the ones to do it. But the bigger issue here is that the question has misinterpreted the theory of anthropogenic global warming and climate change (AGW) as planetary environmentalism. It is neither planetary nor environmentalism.

(2): The pollution issues of burning fossil fuels were solved long ago by the EPA, an agency that was created for that purpose. The AGW issue is not a pollution issue nor a going green issue nor a planet saving issue. It is simply the the observation by climate scientists that the 5th warming cycle of the Holocene interglacial that we live in began in the industrial revolution of humans when humans began to dig up and burn large quantities of fossil fuels.

(3): Concurrently atmospheric CO2 concentration (ACO2) and global mean surface temperature (GMST) have been rising. Based on these data and their scientific knowledge of the earth’s climate system and the greenhouse effect of ACO2, climate scientists have determined that burning fossil fuels causes ACO2 to rise and rising ACO2 causes rising GMST and the rising GMST is understood as anthropogenic global warming (AGW) and that this warming cannot be allowed to continue beyond a dangerous threshold because of the destructive impacts of a feedback driven out of control warming such as sea level rise and severity of extreme weather.

(4): Climate science proposes that AGW can and must be stopped by the humans that are causing it by burning fossil fuels. The solution is to stop burning fossil fuels. Full stop. End of story. This is not an eco wacko environmentalism agenda and there is no role in the needed climate action for things like going green or a vegan diet.
