    Sorry, but I'm a botanist and you couldn't be more wrong.

    Fertilizer is also "plant food" but do you know what happens when you add too much of it to a plant? (It's not pretty)

    Secondly heat is not good after a certain point either. It increases the evaporation rate (drying plants out) and causing the photosynthetic rate to drop.

    Additionally many plants cannot produce fruit or seeds when nighttime temperatures rise above a certain level. Like green beans? You're not likely to get very many in the future due to climate change. If night time temperatures rise over around 65 degrees F, the flowers don't produce beans. And climate change is especially increasing night time temperatures because greenhouse gases keep heat from escaping the earth at night.

    The last two years in my area, I've hardly seen any green beans.


    Scientists are working on dealing with the problem by . . . inducing mutations and selecting for superior crops.

    I could never figure out why people assume that for every problem, government is the answer. But I do notice that those who are least cognizant of the nature of the problem, are most likely to assume that government is the only alternative.

    RD, I'm sure you're convinced that you're right, but as Alate_One says, there are technological fixes that might save the day. At least consider the possibility, um?

    You apparently didn't catch the sarcasm in RD's comment...

    You ever heard of the "love and logic" approach?

    If someone tries to derail a conversation with sarcasm, you simply treat it as if that person was making a statement in good faith. The result will, at worst, compel him to admit the attempted derailment, and might actually get him to take a constructive part in the discussion again.

    Or you just make yourself look like a fool for not understanding that what the other person said is on topic and just sarcasm....

    I guess that some people cannot see that a story about the bean crops for the last two year in one local area is completely meaningless to the topic.

    I can only point out that it worked just fine, this time. Given the sarcastic derailment attempt in saying that the only way to handle climate change is to "put the government in charge of everything! Right away!!", the technique gently debunks it, and suggests that he consider more realistic possibilities.

    Except that RD was being sarcastic about doing such a thing, because he was mocking those who say the government is the answer to most problems. He doesn't actually support large government, and your failure to recognize such, even after it's been pointed out that he was being sarcastic, only makes you look like even more of an idiot.

    I wish it was just beans. Tomatoes are now having trouble in my area; there's too much heat, which prevents pollen from working correctly. So flowers form on tomato plants, but don't produce fruit. And as you learned, the increase in carbon dioxide is directly and adversely affecting the nutritional value of crops.

    Yes. Since no one here said that, his attempted derailment was easily countered by reminding him that people here were suggesting technological fixes, not government intervention.

    He doesn't actually support large government
    Yes, and when I explained to him that government wasn't always the answer, pointing instead to technology as a likely fix, it easily countered his ploy.

    and your failure to recognize such
    J.R., everyone recognized what he was doing. It's just that by answering him as if he was sincere, one can easily counter the attempt to derail the discussion.

    even after it's been pointed out that he was being sarcastic, only makes you look like even more of an idiot.
    Well, you know how dumb barbarians are...

    When you're in a hole deeper than you can climb out of, STOP DIGGING.
    Funny how people in the hole, never realize it, huh?

    And now, how about getting back to the issue without more nonsense?

    A good start would be by engaging with some facts:

    Fertilizer is also "plant food" but do you know what happens when you add too much of it to a plant? (It's not pretty)

    Secondly heat is not good after a certain point either. It increases the evaporation rate (drying plants out) and causing the photosynthetic rate to drop.
