    Global warming review

    Climate threat to U.S. security laid out - Climate Change - MSNBC.com

    Ok, so global warming will eventually cause:

    Terrorism

    Disease

    Floods

    Droughts

    Starvation

    Erections lasting more than four hours

    Poverty

    War

    Plagues of locusts

    Catastrophic storms

    Scarcity of Oreo cookies

    Massive flooding of coastal areas

    Loss of habitat for polar bears

    Schwetty balls



    Have I missed anything?

    Re: Global warming review

    Remember that it's no longer called global warming. It's climate change. Some also just call it weather.

    Re: Global warming review

    So our gov't is predicting massive global warming problems by 2030. I guess that means I'd better start preparing for global cooling instead.

    Yeah, you did...

    Dr. Peter Venkman: This city is headed for a disaster of biblical proportions.
    Mayor: What do you mean, "biblical"?
    Dr Ray Stantz: What he means is Old Testament, Mr. Mayor, real wrath of God type stuff.
    Dr. Peter Venkman: Exactly.
    Dr Ray Stantz: Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies! Rivers and seas boiling!
    Dr. Egon Spengler: Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes...
    Winston Zeddemore: The dead rising from the grave!
    Dr. Peter Venkman: Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together... mass hysteria!

    I know, I just used this quote recently, I'm a recycler - what can I say?


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?

    But don't worry about it... There's like a 10% chance that we have it all wrong. We shouldn't try to do anything about it until we're certain.

    If you invest in a diversified portfolio will your assets increase over the next twenty years? Will they be higher tomorrow? Long term trends are more predictable than specific instances.

    So what you're saying is make hundreds of predictions of what increased CO2 emissions MIGHT cause and one of them is BOUND to be right? Oh yeah, that's DEFINITELY a reason to take the climate change argument seriously...

    You can say that because HISTORY supports it.

    Nothing in HISTORY supports human-caused global warming.

    A better analogy is saying you can predicti what a stock will do during the next thousand years based upon what it did in the last 30 seconds.

    Which is what the "man-caused global warming" ahem "scientists" are claiming to be able to predict.

    Exactly. I don't particularly care if there's global warming or cooling - the point is that we should be taking care of the environment anyway, right? Same answer as every week when one of these threads comes up.

    The question is what is taking care of the environment?

    During the 90's everyone was told to stop using paper sacks and move to plastic. Now plastic is worse than paper.

    We were told to drink bottled water. Now we find out that the water is actually worse than most tap water and the plastic bottles are bad for the environment.

    I think it's pretty safe to say that riding a bike instead of a car is better for the environment but a lot of other things it's still up in the air.

    Yes, we should take care of the environment, in ways that can actual affect real change.
