You just said it snowed when that never happens yet you said global warning is effecting us... that doesnt make sense at all... if global warming was having an effect then it would be getting hotter thus not being able to snow even if it does melt before it hits the ground...
Nick, thank you, I love your sense of humor and ability to pick up on sarcasm. Half of my statement is true. Global warming won't affect us (I'm 18) in our lifetime. It MAY affect our children, but there's no way to prove that either. These environmentalists try to scare us by acting as if the world will come to an end if we dont start using ethanol (which is more expensive than gas and hurts gas mileage) and don't start buying hybrids. I'm a strong conservative and if you disagree make a statement as to why. As far as I'm concerned the fact that you took time to call me a retard with no evidence behind your statements makes you look ignorant. Reply now.
opps, sorry driving. I'm just f#$%ing with you Reece. I respect your opinion, its like an a$$hole, everyone has one. My personal opinion differs. I believe, and I am 19, that we will see the effects of global warming well withing out lifetime. Take the above advice and watch "An Inconvient Truth". I must admit that the movie has both enviromental as well as political motives behind it. Even so, all the data in the movie is supported by the scientific community. Surverys taken of papers written by people in the scientific community over the past ten years show that no established scientific community/organization disagrees over the validity of human fueled global warming. On the other hand, the same survey of the mass media taken over the same period of time shows about a 50/50 split on wether or not global warming is happening and is caused by human civilization. I believe we are being brainwashed by the mass media and our government to believe this is not happenening b/c it is not in our current economical interests to take actions to stop it.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Damn REPUBLICANS, they will say and do anything to scam money from under peoples noses ! Now the've scared people into thinking there gonna drown in thier sleep, and whats worse, your paying 3/gal for gas. Hurry, go spend more money on rubber floats !
Acctually, its the Republican's that are saying the Liberal Democrats are scaring ppl. The Republicans don't want that to happen. If the dems succeed, there will be new emmisions standards and more taxpayers money will be spent on solving this problem, which scares oil companies and detriot. It doesnt make sense why this scares them tho. Something like this happened back in 1971-72, when the catalytic converter was introduced into american transportation. People thought it would greatly hurt american motor companies and effect oil companies, instead it created jobs and competitive research.
i agree with yuo juliob that the US causes a lot of the problem. but now india and china are finally catching up with everyone else and are useing coal fired power plants...considering they have 2 of the largest populations, those coal fired plants are gonna really do some damage...so when those are up, they will be worse than the US. but yea, right now the US is f_cking over the world in a way.
even if we stopped emmiting fossile fuels and smog and whatever we'd still be fvcked because of the stuff thats already slowly rising into the ozone
global warming is happening and if you dont belive it youve got to be one hell of a ignorant SOB. nothing dirasic is going to happen say over night but over a period of 10 years it sure will. iv been learning alot about this for a while and its predicted to baicically go down in 20-50years so pretty much all of us will see effects in our lifetime
Global warming is true, but nothing to worry about. Just as we humans adapted to the world, nature will adapt and take care of us. "Day after tomorrow" I see as being somewhat true. Mother nature can purify the air when needed in strange events. Big floods, I don't see being a huge issue though. The ice is in the ocean already. So when going from solid to liquid will not increase the level of water. Only ones to worry about is ice on land, but this talk about the iceburgs and so forth melting and flooding everything is crap. El nino and La nina is the cause of the crazy weather. Like I said, mother nature will adapt and purify when needed. PROOF ! Colder temps and wierd weather in AZ and CA. Hot air rises, which will be your non pure air, and colder temp will make your air more pure. Whooohooo, I think that sounds pretty good I need a degree.
Carbon dioxide levels are 30 percent higher today then they have been in the last 600,000 years. Water based ice is not a threat. But land based ice is. The melting of land based ice has the potential to raise sea levels drastically. A large and sudden release of fresh water due to melting ice can have the ability to stop ocean currents. Such as the one that carries warm water to the west coast of Great Britian, and keeps Europe in a temperate climate. Can you say "theres a 1/4 mile of ice over my head"?
lol wow we have quite a few scientist on ecoustics personaly global warming will take effect long b4 were gone scientist are just tryin to scare us just like the sun exploding none of this will matter to us i say f**k the world and let our kids deal with it HAHAHHHAHAHA imma di*k
driving, actually it very well could happen in most of lifetimes. within the next 30-40 years is a high possibility. but lets not freak about this, this is a el nino/la nina year which causes goofy weather everywhere. for example, here in NoVA it was 80 degrees lsat sunday, this sunday, we got an inch of snow...
here in florida its 90 degrees then 40 degrees the next then the next day it rains and then its windy with 90 degrees temperature if ne one is F-ed up its FL we are only cold 1 month outta the year lol and were lucky even to get a month of cold this year i think weve only had 2 weeks of cold weather
climate change is an ongoing event. If the world was 1 hour old, The climate for the last 59 minutes and 59 seconds has fluxuated from Global average of 119 Above to 100 below. It has only been this last second, Which by the way man lives, that the climate has maintained a comfortable,(in human being terms) climate.
hey guys instead of pointing fingers look in history books. The polar ice caps have melted before and refroze its a natural occurance in our world cycle. The world itself releases more methane gas then we could possibly contribute to. The reason for global warming is the high high amounts of CO2 found in the atmosphere, JulioB you blame the US? that may be tru but not directly. It comes from the high high numbers of trees being cut down in the rain forests every day, becaus eif you didnt pay attention in science class trees take Co2 and turn it into O2. Without the mass number of trees that were here durring the last global warming trend it can't fix itself. You can say its all the suv's till your blue in the face but the truth is that SUV's dont put a finger on the trees that we are losing daily! and scientist will tell you that. I have this great program from the discover chan on my tivo right now that I just had my son watch, and it puts everything into perspective. Yanks was right about el nino also. It warms the pacific 1-2 degrees shifting the jet streams therefore shifting weather paterns.
The reason being is because the earth doesn't have a perfect orbit. The earth actually has a wobble to it when it rotates this is also effected by the fact the moon is moving further away from the earth which will further worsen the wobble, FACT/// Polo...
Thank you, B, James, and any other not completely liberal person out there. Your views are clouded by hysteria. What happend to you people being politically correct? You should have realized the opinions your throwing out could upset people, and that would be bad! Anyways, enough liberal bashing. I did a study on ethanol and it will end up costing much more than gas, and hurt gas mileage sufficiently. Emissions will always be there and like James said, you can blame it on SUVs all day, but that's not the be all and end all of the downfall some of you think our world is facing. There is some research by scientists, but the field is not NEAR broad enough to show conclusive evidence of "our world coming to an end".
Not to turn this political, but fat chance a democrat wins the presidency. Barrak Obama? Hillary Clinton? The simple fact that you consider running Hillary should dissuade EVERYONE from being a Democrat. Nothing against women, but I would leave the country if another Clinton made office. Check that, I would leave and ANY women became president...
Reece I don't agree with you at all. Look what happened when Bill was removed from office, we went into war again. The worse thing Bill clinton did was get laid in office, GOOD FOR HIM! I would rather have a president who really didn't do much than one who wasted more money, time and lives in a war that wasn't ours to begin with. Now with ethanol it takes aprox TWICE as much of it to get the same gas mileage/horse power that gasoline would give. The reason for this is density. In the future you will not have a choice on what you burn it is being made for you right now. Almost all cars build now are ethanol friendly...Polo.
PS- Other from PMS I think Hillary would make a great president... JMHO.
you know there is a machine that converts water to hydrogen that can run a car without mods to it (besides putting the machine in) and it gets 100miles to 8 ounces of water and the only byproduct is water ill try to find the video again.. suposably the guy got sued by the goverment cause he wasnt buying gas but using the roads.. Gas tax is actually road tax so ive been told
The economy would have been great no matter who was president while Bill was in office. I'm not saying Bush is a good president, because he's not. I'm just saying with the cards he was dealt it would be hard for anyone (especially a b!tch) to come out with a positive approval.
P.S. Hillary's approval ratings are at an al-time low. Thank God!
It is nice to know we have more than subs and amps ont he brain hehe. I've researched weather and climates ever since I was in 3rd grade. I love chasing tornadoes (different subject). Anywho, I love the graph Marc put up and what was said. IMO, and studied opinion, what I said above, El nino and La nina is a way for mother nature to maintain the climates. Your body temp is 98 degrees. When you get sick you get hotter. Well, earth is sick and gets hotter. We have white blood cells, earth has the nino's. Now if we don't stop cutting the rain forest down, we will be up $hit creek without a paddle. Scientist are over paid morons that scare the public
were all going to die one day or another, but i wouldnt like to be reencarnated as some kind of animal only to find out i wasted sperm aka my next generations dieing of global warming...rofl drank to much tonight... ttyl everyone
