Oh yea because it takes a tree's worth of solar cells to put out a few milliwatts
Slap a solar cell on the tree. (Tree has access to sunlight)
You are right, the planet doesn't care. Life isn't easy to maintain and it will suck in the future. But it also sucked in the past and we still managed to build up that world spanning civilization. The climate may have helped to a certain degree, but despite different climates, humans have managed to settle across most of the horrible environments the world has to offer from tropical places filled with disease to deserts with practically no water, to the arctic reaches. I'm not to worried about a few feet of sea level rise or a degree or two of warming on average.
That said, it might confuse people who've driven cars with shifter stalks, but those haven't been on the market in something like 40 years and haven't been common for at least 30
"Not common for at least 30 years?" Pretty much every truck uses column shift if it has an automatic. My first new vehicle out of college was an '02 S-10; it was a column-shift automatic. So were all of the U-Hauls I've ever driven, ranging from 10' to 26'.
Never understood why it was killed. It was a great way to find out about new and interesting projects/ideas.
The Federal Highway speed limit is 55
1995 called. It wants its repealed speed-limit law back.
We are "AN APE" a particular type of APE. We are not several species of APE.
Considering the Earth orbiting (roughly) the sun is something we can measure and use to refine and improve orbital models is a prime difference between it and climate science. Give the Earth a few more climate cycles that we can judge against the models we have developed and then maybe I'll put more stock into climate change predictions.
That last one is pretty key. For some reason that is the primary focus of all anti-CO2 actions despite that being the least tested hypothesis. The geologic evidence is the exact opposite being that the warmer periods of the planet have had the most prolific life and the coldest periods have had most of the mass extinctions.
What makes people think the climate of pre-industrial humanity is the "ideal" climate? Transitioning may be hard, but shouldn't we determine what the optimal climate is before spending resources trying to control it? Wouldn't those resources be better spent on transitioning if a warmer planet is indeed better for life?
Your point would be so much better expressed if you understood the difference between having a common ancestor and evolving from.
Here's a handy infographic to help
For those that say "but they will not see in the dark or with rain" there is a simple solution: adapt to the speed you can travel, so slow down. That is the whole purpose.
Similar to what I said earlier in the discussion, you could also fill the road with potholes to make people slow down. You are making the road less safe to scare people, while also completely disregarding their need to get somewhere in a timely manner.
The one day you'd sell your soul for something, souls are a glut.
