    that what we call a catastrophe, is a earthly defense system? i.e. the best solution to fight global warming would be volcano eruptions or a ice age from the earths point of view.

    I don't see how volcanic eruptions would help with Global Warming...

    Even so, our immune system, while not necessarily intelligent is directed.
    The geological behavior of the Earth does not show any sign of being reactionary to us, but rather, following the mechanics of Geology.

    Needless to say, in the distant past the Earth has been much hotter. It has been much colder.

    Setting aside whether or not the Planet would react to our presence (I rather doubt it), the next question is, "have we made enough of an impact for the Earth to notice?"
    I rather doubt that, as well.

    amassive volcano eruption would produce a cloud big enough to cover the whole globe, reflecting the sunlight off th earth, thus cooling it?

    It would add to the Carbon Dioxide in the atmosphere, which would ultimately result in greenhouse effect.
    Volcanic eruptions, while devastating, would have to be constant and extremely violent all over the globe in order to put a dent in the human population...

    it doesn't matter wether me made an impact to earth or not, it just reacts to what acts on it.

    you're thinking from the point of view of what's bad to you/human, not what's necessary to the earth to reduce damage.

    No, I am not, though I see how you got the impression. It's become circular.

    Look, if climate change (Or global warming) is the harm we are causing, then how is warming the Earth further while potentially damaging the life that converts carbon dioxide into oxygen going to solve the problem?

    maybe it's a circle. the heavier stuff will sink, letting the lighter stuff act as a plaste,r then it deals with he heavier stuff again to a point to keep it circular.

    i'm talking about the earth, not us. it doesn't matter if we or w/e causes it, i'm talking about the reaction.

    Then you need to provide evidence showing a directed reaction.

    None that I am aware of... But the onus is on you to demonstrate.

    Nonsense.
    You can look into whether or not there is increased volcanic activity.

    First you have to show that centuries of research demonstrating that the earth is not a living system and thus can not react to things is wrong.

    the earth isn't a living thing. but it affects the living things on it.

    That is a rather moot point. everything effects everything else to some degree or another. Your initial post made a suggestion that would ONLY work if the planet was conscious of what was happening and purposely acted to change it.
