For anyone interested the following is a graphic of the amount above or belove average as measured by instruments around the world between the 26th of December 2009 and the 1st of January 2010.

Does anyone else have any proper science to add to this thread, and not pseudo-science?

As a species we destroy massive belts of trees, to build upon. We dig massive craters all over the crust to quarry out rocks to build with, and for fuel to burn.

Is the effect of all of this climate change? No one so far can say for sure, but it's a possibility that cannot be ruled out either.

Another complaint is rising sea levels, I would love to see how much that would dip if we took all the boats out of our seas, and stopped reclaiming parts of the sea as extra land.

At one point the balance was so perfect on this planet that new life was created, maybe we are on the down side of the bell curve where life will be destroyed?


It seems as if they ignored your post, sunbeam, maybe because it was not based on scientific links? I dunno, but I think you made a good point too.

Global warming is the major issue in the world now-a-days. Everyone are doing best things to try to stop global warming. The government is doing many things to help stop global warming. The government made a law called The Clean Air Act so there is less air pollution. Global warming is making people get very bad illnesses that could make them physically disabled, very sick, and sometimes even die.

Hi Aricpole, nice to see you posting so soon.

he question that was debated was that of the science of Global Warming. Is it simply a series of data that is used by goverment to apply higher charges.

Or is it simply something that happens as part of Earths normal activity, that is being misinterprited.

Or indeed is the problem that the human virus(matrix analogy) is simply consuming more than it gives back?

I just found this video which does a good job of putting into perspective the rationality of climate change denial.

Unread postby purnima » Thu Jun 03, 2010 5:19 am

I've been raised in an eco-friendly family in a not so eco-friendly community and it bothers me. I'm sick of seeing 16 year old girls driving their new range-rovers and boys driving audi a4's and then, they join "save the earth" or "students against global warming" which are clubs in my school. Don't they realize how hypocritical they are?

No, most people don't. Tell them about it.
