I look at it this way. With Pakistan having nearly 100 nukes and Iran
working furiously to get the bomb, we've got far more to worry about than
changing weather patterns.
I think part of the problem is that a certain number of people, for whatever
reason, believe that things should always stay the same. No species can be
allowed to go extinct, though throughout history species have been going
extinct at a pretty impressive clip. There's a seeming sentiment that this
world, these coastlines, these weather patterns and all that goes with them
should now be frozen forever as the ideal status quo. That's just crazy.
We got where we are as a species *because* we were able to adapt to
everything that nature threw at us. I suspect we'll have to learn to adapt
to changing weather, whether it's caused by man, God, nature, aliens or
sunspots. I predict someday that the pipes that now bring natural gas to
people's houses will be used to deliver oxygen and the rich will be
breathing cans of Perri-air like in Spaceballs. (-:
Besides, any day the Yellowstone supervolcano could erupt again and make
everything we're worrying about now completely academic. California's money
problems will be solved by 2 feet of black ash. Hell, the seismic shock of
the eruption could make the new West Coast shoreline run through Utah. Anyo
ne who's seen footage of Pinatubo (a pimple compared to Yellowstone's
potential) blowing its stack has some idea how bad a supervolcano explosion
could be for the entire western half of the US (and Canada!).
I love how, every time the temperature goes below 32, and/or it snows
a little bit, all the right-wingers start in with the, "Global
warming? HAW HAW HAW!" bit.
It's getting a little tired...
Global warming doesn't exist anymore. They call it "climate change"
now because of all the idiots who think that just because it gets cold
and a little snow falls, all is right with the world.
All I know is, we don't get the snow around here like we used to. Dad
used to have the snow piled up 15' anywhere there was room to put it.
Some years he had trouble finding places to put it. He hasn't pushed
up a decent snow pile in almost 20 years, not that he's complaining.
Something's different. Whether we caused it or not, we'll just have to
wait and see.
How were these blizzards rated worse? one said in 1899 it came with no
warning, well back then there were no weather satellites and no
national weather service.
if they were rated as worst for death rate all our modern stuff helps
to minimize deaths.
my take on global warming, when you dont totally understand such a
serious hazard its best to respect it and avoid making it worse.....
the people who dont believe in global warming have a wait till its
terrible past tipping point approach.
this isnt smart, imagine the costs to evacuate the coast lines and
islands world wide if the ocean level rises more.....
if you think the budget deficit is bad now just wait till all the
coastal land owners want compensation:(
I hope you're not suggesting that when Chicken Little says the
sky is falling, we respect the claim without hearing out both
sides of the argument.
The polar ice caps are melting and anyone who doubts that is
oblivious to reality. But the high priests of global warming
do not want to hear or respond to their critics. They belong
to Bill Clinton School of debate - personal attack rather than
responding to the questions.
If the NORTH polar ice-cap melts, it will be a terrific boon for the world's
economy. The fabled Northwest Passage will become a reality and shipping
costs between Asia and Europe will be cut in half. Likewise shipping costs
between Asia and the U.S. east coast will go down significantly, to the
benefit of all involved.
If the SOUTH polar ice-cap melts, maybe there'll be a problem. It will still
be cold at the South Pole, snow will still keep falling. The question is
whether the ice will melt faster than it forms.
Heres a question for those who dont believe in global warming!
If the poles melt and flood the coast lines, will you stll deny its
Or just claim its not caused by man?
Everyone will get interested in global warming once the wall streeters
are getting their 5 grand shoes wet going to work:)
Here's a question for the physics challenged warmingists; if the North pole
only melts (note you said "poles"), will the seas rise enough to swamp NYC?
Miami? Amsterdam? (NOLA is no fair, it's already under water).
Not. If it were, sending trillion$ to the third world (including DC) won't
help one little bit.
Why don't you double your electric bill and send that half to the third world

Funny thing about Global Warming, it's actually misnamed. It should be
called Solar System Warming because a Russian scientist discovered that

Did you read the whole article?
Amato Evan, a climate scientist at the University of Wisconsin, Madison,
added that "the idea just isn't supported by the theory or by the
The conventional theory is that climate changes on Mars can be explained
primarily by small alterations in the planet's orbit and tilt, not by
changes in the sun.
"Wobbles in the orbit of Mars are the main cause of its climate change
in the current era," Oxford's Wilson explained. (Related: "Don't Blame
Sun for Global Warming, Study Says" [September 13, 2006].)
So, one Russian Scientist, who happens to think the way you like is
enough to convince you? I think this explains Sarah Palin. And you call
