Many scientists who study this subject believe that we are not past the point of no return, but we could get there very soon if drastic action is not taken.

National geographic has a good article which desribes this topic.

I don't think there is such a notion as "too late" in the context of global warming.

It is clear that previous and current emmissions will have consequences for future generations. If we cut emmissions now, we will prevent additional consequences. Future generations will have the same tough choices to make but there will never be a time in which it is decided that it is too late to stop climate change.

Thre is no too late. if you think its too late then it really will be too late. have some hope. pessemists get absolutely nowhere in life. instead of complaining, get people to work together and make change. Do Something.

No. Let me give you an example.

Our trash disposal service has two barrels- one for recyclables, and one for trash. We put the recycle barrel out each two weeks, as prescribed. We put the trash barrel out about once every three months. If you sort the trash, there is very little landfill material.

Besides, we salvage the aluminum, steel, and, all deposit bottle. Each month, we take it to a local recycler, and collect from thirty to fifty dollars. When you throw those soda and beer cans in the trash, you not only fill up the landfill, but, you are throwing away cash. Aluminum now sells for $1.38 per pound. A barrel of refundable plastic bottles fetches from six to eight dollars. A small box of smashed beverage cans fetches $15 to $30. It's real money.

Similar is true of gasoline by-products. Riding a bicycle, driving a smaller car, or, a motor scooter, will save big dollars at the gas pump, as well as reducing pollution. America needs to divorce gas guzzlers.

Yes, there are many things that can be done to help reduce CO2 emissions in the U.S., but I fear that the problem revolves around China. China is currently the largest C02 emitter, and their emissions are growing alarmingly fast. It seems to me that making sacrafices here will be a waste of effort if China continues on its current trajectory.

To such a simple and unspecified question the simple answer has to be; "When considering the Climate Change, the point raised: 'is it to late to stop it?',is a bit of a paradox. The Climate Change it is a natural event. It is a natural function not caused by man and there is no stop to it.
The only stop there to be considered is the stop to the huge excesses we the humans are committing still in every day of our lives.These excesses will drive the impact of the Climate Change to ever higher levels of hazards and also will diminish our natural and social ability to endure-adapt to such a change as every day passes bye. Global Warming is only a short side effect of the climate change at this very point in time.
That is my opinion.:-)

We can't change what has already bin done, but we can stop it from causing more damage yes.

Climate change is not new to the earth. It has been taking place since millions of years and will continue to. Recently however the process has been hastened by mans activity. We can take steps to conserve the earth’s natural resources like water. Small steps like turning off the faucet when brushing your teeth, taking shorter showers, installing a smart sprinkler controller, fixing leaky faucets, and washing only full loads of laundry will help in minimizing water usage. Visit http://j.mp/3U61S5 for more tips on water-saving and much more!

Hi again I think that ther is very little hope but if the population of humans went down then we would have more hope. I also think we should reduce green house gases and stop using plastic as a main ingrredient for stuff.

No,it's been changing for billions of years.The planet continually changes it's overall climate patterns.
It is no different at the moment.
All this so called man made climate change crap is just pure scaremongering hogwash.

We cannot change the dynamicity of the universe, nor can we change its purpose. And it's the fact that earth is part of it. But we can be handy in shaping the phenomenon in accord with natural time. so, it's not too late! Nothing is too late!

G'day QuantumCaine,.,There aint no such thing as the devil,.,just as there aint no such thing as an ethereal god of any kind that any godgobbering jehova jiving jesus junkie says exists.
They are purely made up mythological bits of garbage that has had a devastating effect on our planet.
godgobbers have also used these invented gods and devils to terrorize children over several millennium.
With monstrously evil effect,.,especially when it is coupled with all the massive amount child sex abuse perpetrated on kids by perverted godgobbers.

Global warming as described by the climate change doomsday morons does not exist either.
I love to sling a bit of comic bullshit and have a great larf,.,but I am very serious about debunking the bullshit scenario about the so called catastrophic climate change.
It is all pure scaremongering crap designed by dickhead politicians and an assorted group of loopy psuedo scientists eg,.,the IPCC halfwits,., with an agenda to maximise their status as climate experts and of course,.,make a bucket of cash out of it.

No we can still stop global wormnig.but it is only like 6%
chance of happing.heres how it works it the suns uv rays atratic garbage/liter and is like a magnet and every time
some person litters the uv rays of the sun looks at that and stiks it to the litter and puls the earth 4.4 mecro millmeters closer to the sun so every time you litter the earth gets closer to the sun.

That is not the issue that should concern a Global Warming debater.
The planet is going through a climate cycle with a virus at the moment mankind.
At the moment 25% of the Worlds good land has been spoilt and were still mutalating the remaining 75%. If we keep dumping in our own nest the Earth how long will we be here to see the result of the so called Global Warming of Earth.

We could convert our thiking an use methane to power our cars.
We can recycle all paper, glass and metals and we do but what are we doing about the chemical byproduces that large companies are dumping at sea.
How many toxic ships can we fill before we find green ways to live.
For most people living on the planet it only lasts 70 years and its gone as they are dead.
Its future generations that will suffer give them a helping hand by using the technologies that have been shelved in favour of big profit to make the future cleaner.

There are hundreds of things that could be done other than Western bashing to solve the problem, Instead of dumping wast water into our rivers ,lakes our drinking water, every drop should be used to grow more trees Scientists have looked carefully at each of these factors. The only one where the data matches up is greenhouse gases -- levels of these gases have risen sharply as we burn more fossil fuels. If liberals were really interested in solving the problem, and not interested only in bashing industrialized nations, They would look for real solutions, The most logical solution is to increase oxygen in the atmosphere, rather than slow industrialization. One average size tree produces enough oxygen for breathing of 25 people. The average new home built would add 5 new trees to the world's best oxygen producers A simple solution in the US Is to force the US Government to release some of the millions an millions of acres, they are holding away from the people to control demographers for political reasons. GB advocates have already starved 100 millions Africans to death with their Western bashing agenda. Trees not only pump oxygen into the atmosphere they also pump moisture into the air. It doesn't rain much any more in Africa because most of the trees have been cut down in Africa and the Mid east.

There are counties in several states, with less than 500 people, land owners in these counties keep control over countie Government, by using different means. Protecting the environment to control population groath, is one way demographs ,Endangered species is another way used to keep people from making a living off the land. Gridlock in Washington makes it impossible for the whole Country to emerge from the present economic slump. "Occupying the land" movement is a good way to help Washington break theBig business and Government control of the environmental movement has ruined the economy, and does very little good for the environment. This is because it allows the worse polluters to decide what is good and what is bad for the environment.

I have come to the conclusion that we all have a little blame global warming and its consequences and guilt even more politicians who do not slow down.
