When I was a kid in '82 or so there was 60 degree weather with thunderstorms on Christmas Eve - that was about the time that TIME and the NY Times said that an new Ice Age was coming and there was nothing that we could do about it.

Yep - these guys know what they are talking about.

no one on this board is qualified to talk about the legitimacy or lack thereof of global warming. Unless you've thoroughly studied the subject, and can dispute or back up those studies and specific points, everyone is just blowing hot air here. End of conversation.

I am so glad that you think you have any right to end conversations - ignore it if you want.

FYI -- the earth has been warming since the last ice age.

Concurrent with the rise in global mean surface temperature during the 1990s (the "hottest decade on record") there was a dramatic drop in the number of surface reporting stations, especially in Arctic regions of the former Soviet Union. Not surprisingly, when you eliminate a significant number of lower temperatures from the set of global reported temperatures, you obtain a higher mean.

Is there some global warming - most would agree yes.

Is it caused by humans - who knows!

Will global warming wreck havoc to the world - no one knows, it may lead to more fertile ground worldwide, more temperate climates worldwide, more food, and less cold!
So we do nothing and only act when it is too late. Glad you hate your kids and grandkids. 04-chairshot

"Glad you hate your kids and grandkids" - What BS - that is the crap that is spewed by people who don't want to have a legitamate discussion.

You live in a fantasy world - even the most optimistic envirornmentalists say that implementing there ideas would have little if any impact on the climate.

the VAST majority of scientists who believe in global warming don't see it as a cataclysmic event. This is a big media driven let's sell newspaper issue.

Go back and look at stories from 20 years ago - they say that all the rain forests will be gone in 20 years, that the coasts will be flooded and unliveable, and numerous other claims - NONE of them happened.

If you wonder why there is more storm damage now than 50 years ago - it is because more people live on the coasts!!!
Fine. Lets not do anything. Lets keep polluting the earth. I don't really expect man to be smart enough to keep from killing themselves.

03-yes

Interestingly, I haven't seen Kedz in the spin room (lately - I never went there myself until recently). Nobody to argue with I guess.

How dare you care about the environment! Shame on you for caring about future generations of the planet!

Actually i hope we are all reincarnated, especially Kedz.

Quote:Global warming is not a religion. I hear what you are saying, and I am not saying this snowstorm or cold is because of global warming......but global warming is happening. The average temperature in the Arctic region is slightly up and some of the glaciers are starting to melt, thus slightly raising sea level and slightly raising the average temperature of the oceans. And over the next several decades it will continue if CO continues to be consumed at the rate it is now.

People need to stop eating Colorado!??

Global Warming is a religion.

Many religions state their belief that mankind once lived in paradise, until some sort of original sin caused him to fall from grace (ie Adam & Eve, Pandora's box). The Global Warmists beleive Earth was paradise until the evil industrial revolution.

Many religions believe in a future apocalypse, when mankind will finally pay for his evil ways. The Global Warming apocalypse is the Day After Tomorrow.

Religions say that while man may never be perfect, he can approach that goal through sacrifice and reverance. In Global Warming you sacrifice your energy consumption to save Mother Earth.

Where a Christian may use an Autumn sunset or the miracle of child birth, to restore his faith in God, a Global Warmist uses a warm day in December, or a natural disaster to restore his faith in Global Warming.

Religious people get offended if you tell them there is no God. Global Warmists get offended if you tell them there is no global warming. It's a matter of faith.

Here is one big difference. Religions only ask their followers to contribute to their church. Global Warmists want to make everyone contribute, whether they want to or not.

As a duly ordained minister in the First Congregational Church of Global Warming, I can attest to your words of vision and wisdom. Although my flock is slowly growing, we have been infiltrated by some Southern Republican types. This has me greatly concerned because they are using mind games to sway my flock to their side. They have even started petitions to change our liturgy to actually mention God! However, I am countering their moves by asking our choir to sing "Hot Fun in the Summertime", "Summer in the City", and "Cold Cold Heart" continuously for 3 hours every Sunday as a backgound for our services.

Now, if you'll excuse me I need to prepare for my sermon and puff up my hair with my indistrial-strength hairspray. Doing that gives me such a globally warm feeling! :shhh:

Wonder how some of the "global warming" celebrities live with themselves -- heating their 12,000 sq ft mansions, gas-guzzling limos, private aircraft, etc.

I'll bet I consume a lot less natural resources than they do. Hypocrites.

Practice what you preach. I'm curious, what exactly do some of you do to help be more "green".

The earth is cleaner now than it has ever been. The fact is that the things that enviornmentalists want to do will have no impact on the weather! Face it - a volcanic eruption spews more pollution in the air than man does in several years!!!

How about Al Gore complaing while flying around in a private jet!!! WHAT A HYPOCRITE!!!
