Most scientists are blaming global warming CO2 emissions as the culprit behind global warming

Modern civilization is based on oil and a byproduct of using oil is CO2, and it is these CO2 emissions that are causing global warming. So the obvious thing is to try and limit CO2 emissions therefore decreasing the adverse effects of global warming. Easier said than done. 

The world just doesn’t want to change. 

I am under the impression that if mankind is causing global warming by increasing CO2 emissions wouldn’t it be logical to start limiting the numbers of people on the planet. No one has started talking about that so until they do I’m not really worried about CO2 emissions and global warming. It is just something to clog up the news. I am more worried about peak oil than global warming, but as the oil starts to run out we will start to use more coal and coal is notorious for increasing CO2 levels. 

Then global warming will really kick in and CO2 emissions will go through the roof. 

It all boils down to population. If we start limiting the numbers of people on the overpopulated planet we will need to burn less coal to supply energy for less people. But nobody wants to do that, it is easier to talk and hope somebody else does something. And all the time the CO2 levels keep rising until life on the overpopulated planet is unsustainable. 

I don’t know how long that will take. But anyone younger than 50 will probably live long enough to see the affects of global warming and peak oil. On a personal level you could start using less energy therefore you will leave a smaller carbon footprint on the planet. As was suggested in the Discovery Channel Global Warming program, ‘What You Need To Know.’
