What's 'climate change'? You still haven't defined it. It's still just a buzzword.

What are you El Niño?
Not clockwork but regular - like a bowel.

I go with the working definitions, discuss the issue within that context.
Talk to the guy running this place - see if you're prepared to participate.
I'd respect someone who refused to continue because they disagree with the fundamentals.

No.

There is no suggestion at all in any science what so ever that the earth could become uninhabitable for humans due to any of the most extreme projections of climate change due to increased CO2.

The earth has had many long periods where CO2 was around 20%.

It is today at 0.004%.

For those who are arithmetically challenged that is 5,000 times more than today. And still not a problem for temperature.

Oh there's more than a suggestion, its been considered a candidate for some time.

The Reason We've Never Found Intelligent Life Might be Because We Are Already Going Extinct

I'm not so sure myself, it'll be a factor but there's a good chance we'll be seeing the fireworks once things start getting too bad.

"Pakistan has been described as 'the most dangerous place on earth' ... By far the greatest long-term threat is one that our media hardly ever discuss, since it is too long-term and insufficiently fashionable: the growing shortage of water, due to a combination of over-population, appallingly inefficient use and conservation, and the effect of global warming on the Himalayan glaciers. If present trends continue, it is virtually certain that in fifty years time, much of Pakistan will be as dry as the Sahara – but a Sahara with a population of hundreds of millions of human beings. (The same will be true of northern India.)"

"if the situation persists, there will be no or very little clean water available in Pakistan by 2025."

And you can sum up western policy regarding this for the past few years with just three words "...Assad must go!"
Yeah its not looking too good.

Considering that our population on Earth is increasing, your claim is a bit hollow.

1, SCIENCE!!! Not blog gibberish.

2, Pakistan is drying out due not to global climate changes but to very very poor water and land management.

3, Himalayan glaciers have a total ice mass of less than 40Gt. That's all of them. The Indus river has an annual flow rate of around 110Gt, from memory. If 10% of the glaciers, which mostly drain into the Gangees, were to melt in a year it would not have a significant effect on the flow of the Indus.

4, What has Assad got to do with Pakistan???? What has western policy to do with the local management of Pakistan's water??? What planet do you come from?

I have rarely seem such an admission of stupidity.

If you know what you are talking about explain. If you don't shut up.
