Oh well, Hilary will be in the white house in a few years and she'll listen.

Well true given time Mom will clean up your room eventuallyLacero said:
Yeah, maybe by bringing on another ice age and making us extinct.Lacero said:
Well, we'll see. The basis for the global warming movement only seems to be the last 250 years, which is just a drop in the time bucket. If you're going to make statements about global warming, at least go back one full ice age revolution. Then I'd be willing to talk about a .25 degree change in temperature.swanny said:and perhaps the "blessings" afforded by the United Nations

Hey! Kyoto is one of the most beautiful cities in Japan. Don't say that it's not worth anything.Kmacripple said:Kyoto is not worth anything. Its goal is to reduce carbon emissions by 5.2%. Like that will do anything. Its importance has been vastly overstated by the press.
And to think, Orlando's newly re-reproposed light rail system won't be coming all the way out to you, will it?bousozoku said:Hey! Kyoto is one of the most beautiful cities in Japan. Don't say that it's not worth anything.
In the case of the Kyoto Accord, anything downward will help. It won't make things better, but it will make things less worse.
Now, if this country was serious about public transportation, we'd have a better chance.
There won't be an Orlando area light rail system until all of these people stop dragging their feet. None of them have probably spent more than 5 minutes on anything that could remotely be called public transportation and yet, they're all experts.relimw said:And to think, Orlando's newly re-reproposed light rail system won't be coming all the way out to you, will it?
Of course, anything would be better than I-4 during rush hour >shivers<
It's entertaining when people make broad claims about what the planet can do while at the same time claiming that there is no way to tell that what we are doing is harmful.Lacero said:
This is suicidal reasoning, you know?Lacero said:
We are just a blip in time. It's all ok, because looking at the vast amounts of time in the Earth's climate record there must have been other times like these. We all just need to calm down and let Mother Nature and her Seven Sisters take care of it all. Heaven knows we wouldn't want to interfere in their grand scheme.pseudobrit said:This is suicidal reasoning, you know?
When the balance of nature is thrown off, nature finds a way to kill the offender.
We're beyond other life in that we have ways of tricking nature and doing more damage on a vast scale than any other creature. If the cost of this wanton recklessness is the end of most life forms, including our own, should we just shrug it off?
Are you seriously willing to allow the human race to kill itself?
I'm of two minds on this one:pseudobrit said:Are you seriously willing to allow the human race to kill itself?
