Climate Cult Wants Every Person’s Carbon Dioxide Emissions To Be Regulated – No More Breathing … For The Planet!

Hans Joachim Schellnhuber, a leading German scientist from the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK), believes that in order to save the planet from “climate change,” every person’s carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions must be capped and regulated by the government.

Calling the concept a “planetary guardrail,” Schellnhuber contends that every person should have a three-ton CO2 emissions limit per year applied to their daily life. Those who exceed that amount should be forced to pay a fine, he says.

Since every breath a person takes results in CO2 being exhaled in exchange for oxygen, breathing would also have to be regulated. Those who wish to remain under the three-ton cap may need to take fewer breaths, likely resulting in much less exercise and physical exertion in order to keep heart rate low.

Only the rich, based on Schellnhuber’s idea, would be allowed to live normally. The poor would have to really cut back on everything, including breathing, in order to not be fined into oblivion.

@DeluxedEdition
Our consumption of animal protein is the source of greenhouses gas and climate change.

Insects are an overlooked source of protein and a way to battle climate change.

The consumption of insects can offset climate change in many ways.

So sayeth the wef

@DeluxedEdition Sure! The democrats say eat bugs, live longer! The democrats say don't eat beef, steaks, hamburgers! They democrats say, " Eat crickets!! Flies!! All the insects!!". While they fly home in their big jet planes, spewing ALL kinds of pollution, eating steak or lamb on board.

Hans Joachim Schellnhuber, a leading German scientist, No More Breathing - sounds like the Germans are bringing back the Nazi death camps

Why is it always the Germans?
Can you unclutch your pearls for a moment to do the math?? A three ton limit per person; presumably metric tons, so 6600 lbs per year.

The average human exhales about 2.3 pounds of carbon dioxide on an average day. Multiply that by 365.25 days per year and you get 840 lbs of CO2 exhaled. DUUUDE!!! That still leaves 5750 lbs of CO2 for you to emit! Breathe all you like!!!

@sunsporter1649 It won't be, oh idiotic one....

@sunsporter1649 I did the math for you.

It involved a multiplication and then a subtraction.

I'm sorry it was too tough for a "radar expert" like you to follow.
@gol979 asks [quote]Can the proponents of this ... tell us the % of CO2 in the atmosphere and let us know what % they want it at[/quote] Yes

Current average atmospheric CO2 levels: 417.2 parts per million.
That's about 50% higher than pre-industrial levels.
In 1990, average CO2 levels were about 355 ppm.
https://research.noaa.gov/article/ArtMID/587/ArticleID/2914/No-sign-of-significant-decrease-in-global-CO2-emissions
https://essd.copernicus.org/articles/14/4811/2022/

Actually, the Paris Accords set a limit on temperature rise. The Accords agree to limit global temperature rise this century at 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels.

For large industrial countries like the US, that means cutting its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to about 50% below 2005 levels by 2030.

In 2005, US CO2 emissions were 19.5 metric tons per capita. In 2021 we emitted 14.24 metric tons per capita That means the US is more than half way to the Paris Accords emission level.

[b]Lemme repeat that - the US CO2 emissions cuts are already more than half way to the Paris Accords levels![/b]

We are on track, and the dire economic predictions of the anti-environemental extremists are proven false.

For a little perspective, here's 800,000 years of GHG data, covering about 7 ice ages. The climate data comes from bubbles in glacial ice, and is corroborated by data from lake & sea floor sediments.

CO2 & methane & temp data


Here's [i]where[/i] the various data sets were collected:


The most salient thing about the 800,000 years of climate data is the rate of change during those previous 7 ice ages compared to the current rate of change this century.

This is true. Every Democrat has suggested that we stop breathing.

Can the proponents of this mainstream quackery tell us the % of CO2 in the atmosphere and let us know what % they want it at......this simple question exposes the insanity of this ideology. It only makes sense if it is about controlling huge swaths of people not about "saving the earth"

If all liberals held their breath

Hello Klaus again 😁

I believe Bidens doing his part by not breathing. No oxygen to his brain has made him very stupid.

Don’t get me started I’m defending my self and what I do all day lol 😂

Where do they find these clowns?

@ron122 liberal think tanks

Trees would die with out co2. More trees less Co2. Being a scientist there is no way he would know that.
MasterLee · 51-55, M
@Confined trees take in co2 and give us o2
Confined · 51-55, M
@MasterLee exactly!
So cars forever! War good.
What?

@MarmeeMarch that's crazy. You can't tell.
The national disgrace isn't about individuals, anyway. Nobody can stop the ecocide. It's done! Murka killed it.
