Re: what the global warmists' really want...

Once again I find myself agreeing with Smitty. I do find it ironic that my goal is to full time in a skoolie...that will generally stay in one place for extended periods of time and run off solar/wind power...and I am an avid motorcyclist rather than a cager(better mpg)...and I recycle....and I camp/workout for recreation......My point is that my carbon footprint is certainly a fraction of most eco-whack-jobs and I know damn well that carbon isn't going to kill us all; plants live off the stuff for crying out loud.

I forgot to add that the whole scheme is solely based on a quest for money and power. I truly don't understand the fools who will gain nothing from their grand leaders' power mongering and go along cheering away.

Re: what the global warmists' really want...

.. a while back one brave government soul ventured forth with "the report" and it concluded that we had accelerated the natural cycle of global warming and cooling by a whole .. get ready for it .. a whole 50 years .. never heard from him again and can't find the report anymore .. I am sure it's out there somewhere (insert dramatic Muller and Scully music) ..

.. it's a bunch of horse-hocky .. couple of good volcano-burps easily exceed anything we have dreamed up so far ..

Re: what the global warmists' really want...

I've been reading the various postings on Skoolie for several years and gleaned a lot of useful information from some really smart bus recyclers. It was a little scary to run across this discussion of global warming, or climate change (the new PC reference). There is a great deal of misinformation out there and you folks seem to have read most of it. You would pretty much have to have had your head in a hole the past few decades to still deny that climate change is real. I suggest the website below for some interesting reading on the subject. Eco-idiots? Really folks - is this what you truly think of people who are concerned about the health of the planet?

Re: what the global warmists' really want...

First, Al isn't asking for my posessions - he's asking people to pay attention to what is going on around them. As far as getting into your pocketbook, the recent Bush administrations got farther into it than any president in history. You'll be paying for him the rest of your life and then some.

As for manipulation of the data - you might expect if one or two scientist in the world published such predictions they might be making it all up. When 97% of the scientific community supports the claims for climate change you have to wonder if there might be some truth to it. It is surprising how seemingly intelligent people, in the face of overwhelming evidence, will still maintain that the entire research body is fabricated.

Scientific research has touched all our live in many ways. If you've ever taken medicine or had a surgery you benefitted from research. I don't see you claiming that all medical research is falsified. I worked in research for 30 years and can truthfully say that nothing is ever simply black and white. Yet when so many scientist around the world agree that CO2 is rising more rapidly than it should be you have to look at the total picture and wonder if there might be some truth to what they are saying. I agree there are a lot of scary predictions and alarmist crap out there. It makes good press. Judging by your rabid attacks on those with a different opinion I suspect you haven't seen the Al Gore movie or read much of anything of a scientific nature regarding climate change, or anything else for that matter. I guess ignorance is bliss....

We do agree on one thing - litterbugs should be fined, then shot.

Re: what the global warmists' really want...

(Heavy sigh) This subject I think will be placed beside the other two subjects, politics and religion, that can cause an argument at any social gathering. I do believe man is polluting the earth, and wish there was an intelligent way to stop it or at least reduce that. We have come a long way in that endeaver since the sixties and the seventies, at least in this country if not in other third world countries.I do believe the earth's temp is increasing but I think it is due to activity from the sun. NASA recently discovered the polar ice caps on Mars have been steadily decreasing. Since Mars is an uninhabited desert planet I doubt the cause of the increased temps is man made carbon dioxide.I think Mars is also being affected by the increase activity from our sun, same as the earth. Are we polluting the earth? Yes. Is it the sole cause for our increased temps? I doubt it.Should we do more individually to help prevent unneccessary polution of the earth? You bet. Should we shelve our way of life and live like the Amish to please the radicals out there? Hell no. Until we invent a safe reliable economicle replacement for the internal combustion engine, I plan to continue enjoying driving my vehicles with all the gusto at my command. To those radiacls who deem our way of life as dangerous to the earth, I say move to Africa and live in a small village using a hole in the ground to defecate in and squat down like a monkey to slurp your drinking water out of the closest available muddy stream you can find.After all it is all about being as close to mother earth as you can be isnt it?

Re: what the global warmists' really want...

Atmospheric CO2 was 5000 PPM 400 million years ago. Now it is less than 400 ppm, one of the three lowest levels in all of Earth's history. Atmospheric CO2 would have to increase over tenfold to even be equal to the level of that past epoch, which obviously did not end life on Earth. Quite the contrary. It was a period of abundant life, and one could argue provided the raw material for today's "fossil fuel" reserves. (Where do you suppose they came from in the first place?) So in a sense, burning fossil fuel is carbon neutral in exactly the same way that burning biofuels is carbon neutral. The only difference is time scale. One might further argue that even if mankind could influence atmospheric CO2 levels, which is an exceedingly arrogant presumption to begin with (and untrue), an increase in these levels and temperatures may actually be a good thing. In greenhouse agriculture, CO2 is deliberately pumped into the controlled greenhouse environment to increase crop yields. It follows then that increased atmospheric CO2 would improve global plant growth, and that warmer temperatures would lengthen the growing season and increase total arable acreage. This in turn would improve crop yields worldwide and could potentially eliminate hunger.

Even if this assertion (about the 97%) were true, which it's not, the consensus does not cause the (fictional) effect.

The fact of the matter is that it is the gravy train (grants) that causes many of these so-called experts to either toe the line or lose funding.


When 100 percent of everybody thought the world was flat, did that make it true?

When 100 percent of everybody thought the world was the center of the universe, did that make it true?

When 100 percent of everybody thought the Sun revolved around the Earth, did that make it true?


Methinks thou art a troll.
