yeah the planet is getting completely fucked.

It might be too late to reverse anything, while old farts like Trump keep making decision.

To think I moved to Lisbon and am enjoying that the temps here rarely get above 25ºC this summer. :wine:

Meanwhile it's 30ºC in the Arctic...

I'll just re-post what I said in the other thread:

I'm 27 (soon 28) and I'll tell you that this is by far the worst summer that I have ever witnessed. 90% of June and all of the July, we didn't have hot days. Or we had like 5 of them. It was ALWAYS raining and full of clouds. Doesn't even feel like summer. Today we had 28 and it was sunny (after a long time) and now we'll have another 3 days of rain. Then one day 30 and another 3 days of rain. We never had such weather here. It was always very hot and 33-40 degrees with barely any rain. It's really depressing. Not that I like conspiracy theories but this WC made me wonder as Russians always fire those rockets in the clouds to prevent rain for the big events (military parade, etc.).

And one more thing. Despite the shitty summer, gotta say how weather is totally fucked up for sure. I remember when I was a kid, I used to wear long sleeves during the night as it was cold-ish. It was also 30 degrees but grass was green. Nowadays it's totally different. Grass is yellow, burned and drained, looks totally dead. During the night you can hardly breathe. You also get sun burn after like 30 minutes which was impossible 10-15 years ago. I'm no expert nor I read books about climate change, but from my experience, the weather difference is huge in not so big time interval.
^ still hasn't changed. We have a full 7-8 days of clouds/rain and sucky weather. I can't fucking believe it's July.

Tomayto, tomahto, isn't it?
The increase in tomato crops is a main factor for climate change, you’re right.

Unsustainable tomato farming needs to stop.

The main reason for global warming is still by far cows.

This is what we do at home. House has solar panels all led lighting and solar exterior lights. Have radiant floor heating with on demand water heat. Organic foods and natural or organic cleaners , soaps , shampoos etc
Both our vehicles get over 31mpg ( mine will be electric next ). We have a large garden and a little composter. We live two blocks from main street and walk almost every where and we drive only 6 miles to and from work.
I'm putting this out there so no one can paint me with a broad brush
