Guess I had better stock up on sun tan lotion.
well, it was temporary and it doesnt excuse humans from making an ass of the planet now....
we have no excuses.
the planet may be going into an ice age naturally at some stage anyway, but we have accelerated the process to a point of no return....no green taxes or fuel duty will not make any difference to the outcome.
rant over...for now
We are already in a ice age, a ice age is when ever the poles are frozen. If we were not in a ice age there would be a hole other contanent inhabited with humans.
Technically correct, but I've never understood why this essentially semantic argument has any bearing on the climate change debate. It's a bit like the word "theory" in the creationism debate - an issue of technical vs colloquial usage that ultimately advances neither side's argument.
Actually, just to pre-empt the obvious retorts, the semantics can be used as a barometer of someone's knowledge, thus shedding some light on the validity of their other arguments. So maybe it is useful after all.
I'll shut up now.
Semantics are a pedants godsend.
I watched a program about this last night. They said that it the worst case scenario, we could lose all electrical power for months or even years!
It would only be months or years if we didn't get round to fixing the infrastructure. All a solar flare does is break everything in one go, like a relaly big storm. You just have to get out there and put everything back together.
What, no Macs? No TV?
I suppose I could buy a radio...
Man-made global warming is a myth.
Sunspot activity and solar flares cause the climate to change.
No TV as the satellites would fry up nicely.
Radio stations need electricity too...
So, would one of these huge flares cause the waves to be any better?
Maybe he just likes listening to static...
I know, I could not imagine going without electricity for that long!
Radio's need electricity too...
Good point. I'll just read books and play my PSP.
You can buy wind up ones... sheesh do i have to think of EVERYTHING
Well how do you think factories make them, magic?
Imagine the prices go up for generators and solar panels if we really had a power shortage...
I don't get your point...
Wind-up factories, silly!
Without electricity, we'd have to use wind-up power for everything:
Well Mr Skills did
To how many MPC (Miles per crank) does that chrysler get?
Oh, and cars normally use petrol (gas) to run, the batteries charge themselves
Maybe a Superflare would give me super powers!
Yes, but cats don't have this facility.
