No, I do not believe that.As much as I believe in my car or in the laptop on which I write this.
You can just see it already and then we are already-or-do not believe already streets, how much some people want to make us believe all sorts of nonsense.People who pretend that this has something to do with “faith” are simply deceivers and it is time we started to say that out loud.
The Netherlands will have to look at the consequences of sea rising and also realise that if you do not do your own climate homework, you should not expect the rest of the world to take you seriously when you start over it.Even the Americans start by getting that you don’t deserve this world to lead as your hair leads to the climate abyss
We have to build high plains throughout the country which is also habitable as the country overflows.See them as gigantic Mounps. There must be a new edge position on the building. The rail connections and connecting roads between those high Plains must also lie on high.
If schoolchildren are already on strike for a better environment, you can assume that nothing is still done at all.
Well, waste is collected separately, but is it also processed in all countries?
Plastic, waste and oil are still dumped in the sea, and in the emergency weather even complete containers come into the sea.
Emissions of harmful gases are still far from being reduced, especially if the most polluting countries do not want to do anything.
As long as everyone points to each other because ‘ the others do nothing about it ‘, nothing will change to very little.
Of course.Some scientists knew that 100 years ago.
But it’s not quite too late yet.
If we tackle this problem in a number of years around the world, there is still a chance.
But yes, how does the Netherlands tackle this.Here is my list. Oh, and you can put everything behind it: ‘ Don’t like it? Pity. ‘ To tackle climate change, you can not pay attention to the individual.
- Launch propaganda campaign for a better environment.
Let’s face it, otherwise we never get there. People are naturally egoistic.
In the future, these might be Thorium power stations.
Export ‘ clean ‘ energy to our neighbouring countries.
Think of drones, AI in agricultural vehicles, agriculture in the city.
Travel time is shortened so drastically.
Lorries will be moved slowly by air transport.
Zeppelins are inexpensive in maintenance and extremely economical.
For 2030 can, but here subsidies come to pass. Loans can be provided to above modal incomes, and it becomes a gift for those who earn down the modal. However, do not expect a Tesla or BMW. Its subsidies are not possible then no end date is pinned. You already notice that the climate changes by just looking out the window.I still remember from my childhood that it was already snowing around Christmas and there was still 10 cm of snow at the end of February. That was 40, 50 years ago. This winter I saw 5 snowflakes and that was it. So yes, the climate is changing.
Only, do we affect people?Many studies have been conducted that show that most of the changes in the last century have arisen and correspond to the strong industrialization. So yes, man can be an important factor but that is only a theory. But temperature fluctuations have been in place for millions of years. For instance, ice ages are interspersed with warm periods and we are just past an ice age. A part of the warming is therefore a natural effect, although we have accelerated it slightly. The problem is only that we actually don’t know well how the temperature on this planet was 20 million years ago. Or 200 million years ago.
The problem is that we always thought that dinosaurs, like reptiles, were cold-blooated and therefore needed a warm climate to survive, so that the planet used to be much warmer.It came to the conclusion that some of these animals were possibly hot-blooded and possibly also covered with feathers and could survive well in colder climates. A T-Rex on an ice surface has only recently been considered an option but throws the assumption that it used to be warmer…
The planet becomes warmer due to the increase in CO2 in the atmosphere.At least, that’s the idea. But the eruption of the Toba volcano so ‘, 74.000 years ago ensured that the temperature went down worldwide 5 degrees.That would suggest that we could influence the climate by simulling a volcano. Just a lot of ashes the atmosphere in shooting and ready.
But then, to what extent can we ultimately influence the climate?I think there are still plenty of other problems that we need to solve, including the enormous overcrowding that is currently emerging. But also the increase in violent conflicts that have already resulted in two world-wide wars in the last century, which is still causing enormous conflicts.
It sounds harsh but the world would be better off if 2, 3 trillion people in the next few years are just dying.A massive war between China and India would be ideal. Especially when both countries are also deploying nuclear weapons and eradicating each other considerably. The nuclear winter that comes next will bring the temperature down again so that we can get a of again. And nature will also recover, because nature has often survived massive dying-up.
Yes, many animal species we know now will be extinct and that is unfortunate.But in the end it can recover well again and in 1 million years new species will be formed, provided that humanity dies in the meantime or simply leaves the planet. If we can colonize the moon and Mars and transport just 4 trillion inhabitants to these planets while we introduce a huge birth control, the earth could recover well and we can look further into space at other possible Colonies. That is actually the only solution…
However, there are no other solutions because we continue to multiply and increasingly need raw materials and energy.That climate change is coming, no matter what we do. Yes, we can postpone it a while longer by cutting some more, but whether it happens in 20 years or over 50 years, it will be little.
On your way?
The UN has said that in 12 years the point of no reversal is reached.In other words, if we do not intervene drastically, in 12 years we have had the opportunity to stop it or to keep the consequences within the limits.
12 Years is an insane short time.
And given that large polluters are not in any way trying to stop their pollution, I think we should assume that it is a fait accompli.
And since I also read that insects are massively extinct and that if we do nothing about it we have no more insects over 100 years, I think we can say to humanity.
Without insects we can forget it.
Well, then we can prepare for water distress, but then we sit on our Mounps and then keep the insects on it and then we lose the fight.
But good.Haha I’m not such a pessimist normally, but that story about the insects was choped.
In any case, it is far too late to do something as an individual to solve this.Separated waste is really tickle in the margin at the moment. Good to keep doing it because it does not solve the problem, of course it is better.
What we should do as a country?Higher, and Terps, as Peter Hendriks writes in his answer.
I also think that we should be giving people premiums when they move BV to Germany.That saves the spot on the Terp again. We are with Photografy too many people for terpen.
So a promotion campaign to persuade people to move more voluntarily to the interior, both inside and outside the Netherlands.Away from the coasts and the low lying areas. Companies would already be wise to open offices in the east or in Limburg.
We should also do much more with living on the water.Houseboats we are already doing great, why not some more of them? This also saves space on the mounts, and boats do not suffer from more water.
Finally, I think we should also start a desalination project.We will get the weird contradiction that we will get an excess of water AND a shortage of water. It is an excess of salt water and a shortage of fresh water. So a project to get that salty water sweet would be a very good idea.
Well, my imagination is a bit like this:)
The problem with climate change is that it is a global problem, and so we must tackle it as humanity.However, the Earth knows almost 200 different independent countries, and we cannot simply say to white Russia: “And now you are going to build a nuclear power plant like thunder!” Oh Wait a moment, we don’t even do that ourselves.
But apart from that, as a reasonable man of many countries, you cannot expect them to become climate neutral.Countries in Central Africa do have other things on their heads, and with good right. It is also necessary for these countries to industrialize in an inexpensive way, and electric driving does not belong to this. And what about countries that depend on the export of oil and gas? And what about the tens of millions of people who are not sure about their jobs in a climate-neutral world?
Climate change is certainly underway, and the Netherlands alone cannot save it.
So how are we going to prepare ourselves?Not. What will happen soon is not to be prepared. We can say goodbye to our current quality of life. Half The Netherlands is gone, with most cities, so that are less houses, less farmland, less industry, say so.
Climate change is normal.Only it normally happens very slowly and over the course of centuries.
Now it is clearly perceptible that the climate has changed faster.And that these changes do not expire according to normal patterns.
The climate is becoming increasingly unstable.
The shuttle swings steadily from one side to the other.
One expects up to 2100 a sea level rise from 45cm to 2 meters.Now a higher sea level is not so risky, except if there are other adverse conditions, flood, storm and extreme rainfall. Then the water temporarily rises a few meters more. This is quite common.
As long as there are small floods, they are good to repair, but if you are now 50 cm below sea level, then it will soon be one and a half meters or more.
It is clear that after some floods the country is left under water.I am thinking mainly of parts of Groningen and Friesland. The area around the major rivers is also risky, so you might be able to use the Betuwe like Koen and also the ‘ green ‘ heart of Holland.
To allow the water to flow naturally to the sea you have less time, during low tide, so you also need much larger ground.
If you already decide which areas we would like to award, you also know that you do not have to build them any more.
You can use dirt dump to land.Especially on clay soil this goes well. The top layer of clay dig your way. One to two meters. And when the deposit is full, the clay will go over it again. The whole than three to four feet tall.
If you decide to give up land, then you can also put on inland.Elevated motorways can also serve as a weir.
The east of the Netherlands remains dry for a large part, so if you live in the West you can now move to the east.But remember that in a real disaster The east is also a shelter for refugees.
In the West one will do everything to keep the big cities.Here one will devote more to than justifiable. This can be prevented by putting the focus on the east now. Eindhoven, Nijmegen/Arnhem, Twente, Region Assen, Maastricht as the economic core areas.
In This vision one would extend the airfield Eindhoven.
It is unclear how long you can keep the Ijsselmeer polders.I think quite long, as long as one can flush the water in the Ijsselmeer and pump away the polders are very safe. The surrounding landscape is rather threatened, because the are there lower.
The flooding of the Netherlands is a gradual process.First a lot of threatening situations, then more and more small floods and then one gives up terrain. By that time people are used to it.
It remains the question of whether one will do something about the cause of the problems.Overpopulation and CO2 emissions. In difficult situations, the democratic process rather leads to people like Trump than to people like Rutte. At the moment nobody wants to give up his flying holiday because the world is going.
The sea rises after 2100 of course quietly, although no one has a clear picture of the effect of melting land ice. It is also possible that the Netherlands becomes uninhabitable because of the extreme cold.
View: Five meter sea level rise.And then?
