Slim- Yes, it IS all about money. Ask the Koch brothers and their ilk who earn massive profits in the absence of carbon emission regulations. Surprised you can't see that. (No, not really.) Smile

Hypothetically;
A conservative would suggest raising prices on AGW stimulants like fossil fuels to let the market sort it out
A liberal would suggest public spending on more efficient transportation and alternative energy production
A hypocrite turns on the AC, turns on the PC and types stuff online to annoy others about AGW, then goes and takes a drive in his car going to a barbecue or to work at a place which makes AGW stimulants.
Again, hypothetically... just saying...

AGW, self fulfilling prophesy made true one post/aggravated reader at a time

Enjoy the Labor Day weekend folks, looks like a fine Saturday in NY

Well, since I don't drive and all of our power sources here are hydro-electric, your point is hardly universal.

Ah but have you or have ever been, a member the dominant 60 strong UN steering committee, worlds leading climate experts and shapers of opinion and policy club, driving the idea of the threat of global warming, which fits the bill of the Rockefeller's interests and a member of the Rockefeller's Club of Rome or and it's Ex-Soviet president Mikhail Gorbachev sister club The Climate Task Force?

If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

No, but I am a member of the Illuminati and have been instructed to tell you we are not pleased with you for giving everyone else credit for things that we do.

Global warming is a scam .. We aren't flooding. The heat is only rising at 10 decrees every MILLENIUM ....



...you presumably don't understand the effect that a 10 degree increase in global temperature would have.....or is it just that you don't give a *** about future generations?


You do realize that a millennium is a 1000 years, don't you? If you're worried about the temperature in a 1000 years, maybe you don't realize how quickly technology changes. Please compare technology from 1014 to that of technology today. And also recognize the speed at which it has increased in the last 100 years. It seems a bit silly to me that anyone could begin to think that they could predict ANYTHING about 1000 years from now.



...at least you have made your position clear. You don't care that we are over-exploiting our planet, and leaving behind a huge number of problems for future generations to fix. You expect that someday Humans will find ways to reverse or cope with global warming...perhaps you also assume that one day they will retrieve all the lethal radioactive waste that has been dumped in our oceans.....that won't escape for at least a thousand years either.

I guess when people decide they are prepared to live less selfishly, they might replant the rainforests, who knows?

The Earth is a living organism, and has a consciousness. You might argue that this consciousness is similar to the collective consciousness of a colony of ants, or a hive of bees....although I believe it goes beyond that.

If we Humans live in harmony with the planet, and do all we can to be caretakers of our environment, Nature will treat us with kindness. If, on the other hand, we choose to destroy the beauty around us in a gluttonous orgy of avarice, then Nature will treat us harshly.

It's not just the choices we make, but the reason we make them......

Sometimes I just want people to stop helping.

" Downstream consequences" is the concept. It seems to elude the do something, ANYTHING, crowd fairly regularly. The mirrors attract the bugs, the bugs attract the birds and they get fried at a rate of one every two minutes. Yes they call them "streamers" because of the smoke trail left as the fried carcass drops to the earth.

Thanks for saving our environment. Between 1,000 (If you believe the company.) And 26,000 (If you believe a group watching and counting.) birds a year get toasted well done. Hope mother earth is happy with the sacrafice.

Silly? I guarantee I could predict with ONE HUNDRED PERCENT accuracy MANY things about the status of things 1000 years from now.

For starters- I predict that neither you nor I will be there. And it only follows logically that many of the things we do or don't do now will certainly have an impact on who IS there.

I wonder if 97% of scientists agree with that!

It's really a metaphysical question and, as such, is beyond the realm of science. I imagine that there are some scientists who would agree with it as individuals, though.

Nonetheless, I thought everyone knew that it's not nice to fool with Mother Nature. Smile

True. But my prediction in this thread isn't based on my abilities as a mentalist. It was simply a statement of the obvious. Smile

If it is not nice why is it so often what people seek to do?

I don't know. Why do you think we keep pumping unregulated greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere?

I guess when those who want to do the "regulating" have absolutely proven themselves untrustworthy it may have an impact.

I stand corrected. You were indeed able to make a few silly predictions.
