I haven't thought about this for very long, but it seems to me that with a little bit of work and some creativity, global warming can be a pretty good thing for us.   The sun, essentially acts as a gigantic power plant that transmits energy.  The earth receives some of this energy with some of it being absorbed and some of it being emitted away (with the emitted energy being gone).  When you absorb more than you emit, you get global warming, and the other way around you get glo...

Average global temperatures have been going up since the 1910s and despite falling occasionally keep going up by the extreme amount of nearly a degree Celsius. (Note that this means that in some places average temperatures are now two degrees higher than 1910 and in some places they are one degree lower than in 1910.) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Instrumental_Temperature_Record.png Since 2002 average temperatures have been falling by 0.2 degrees. In 2006 Al Gore realesed the movi...

Yes, today is the anniversary of the 1522 deaths caused by global warming in a single day, and no one seems to care.   This is how it happened. That year there was an unusually warm winter and a very warm preceding summer. The New York Times reported that we were on the verge of destruction due to the climbing global temperature and that within a few decades all life on earth would perish. This global warming caused the ice shelves at both poles to melt sending hundreds of huge ice...

Saving the planet I have been reading with some interest about how we must save the planet from man. I was part of the first Earth Day way back in the 70’s and worried about the coming ice age. Here are a few facts that might help you understand what is happening and put it all in perspective. Ten billion years from now the sun will burn itself out, run out of fuel and die. Dose anyone care? No, we will all be dead by then and no one cares that far into the future. Five billion ...
Dear Ms Bligh, Although I am a Greens voter, this election I will be directing my preferences to the LNP. This is not something I thought I could ever do, but I cannot support the Labor Party as long as it is prepared to build the Traveston Dam.   Dams are not the answer to the water problems we face. Countless times, we have had days of heavy rain in Brisbane, only to hear on the news that none of it fell in the dams. Yet, what is a water tank if not a mini-dam?   Rather than tr...

The retired scientist formerly in charge of key NASA climate programs has come out as a sceptic. Dr John Theon, who supervised James Hansen - the activist-scientist who helped give the manmade global warming hypothesis centre prominent media attention - repents at length in a published letter. ... "As Chief of several of NASA Headquarters’ programs (1982-94), an SES position, I was responsible for all weather and climate research in the entire agency, including the resear...

See news link here: Guerrilla Tactics at Oil-Lease Auction Activist Drives Up Prices With Bidding If you read that article you'll learn about Tim DeChristopher, a University of Utah economics student that 'bought' the rights for oil drilling on 13 plots of land that is spread about 149,000 acres.  After sitting back during the first 30 minutes of the auction process DeChristopher made himself an active participant in the auction process and started driving up prices for rights to s...

This is getting more absurd by the minute.  The Feds think they can create a new revenue source, based entirely on the completely bogus bleatings of esteemed 'scientists' Al Gore, Brad Pitt & Robert Redford.  They have to be smoking something really good to believe taxing cows will reduce greenhouse gas emissions.  Is the solution truly to eat less beef & drink less milk?  That's going to save the planet? I think I'll go out to the garage & let a little air out...

Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has announced that Australia will aim to reduce its emissions by 5-15% in spite of urgings from economist Ross Garnaut to reduce by 20% and evidence that anything short of 25% will cause economic and environmental problems. Rudd's 5% target is bad for the environment and bad for the economy. Even former Liberal leader John Hewson has pointed out that an ETS can create new industries and be positive for growth and jobs if handled correctly. The world's sea levels are...

You never read this headline but we do it every day. The politics of global climate change is plain to see if you eliminate party lines and natural distrust of the other side.   The radical left want to save the planet, the evil right wants to save the planet both seem to be on the same page until you add the radical communist and extreme leftist to the mix.   The enemies of America have successfully infiltrated our nation and our government. In times past the democrats...

A few weeks ago, an AP story detailed a discovery in Antarctica. Scientists studying the ice came across the remnants of moss on a valley floor. Further study revealed the remains of tiny crustaceans, insects, and pollen from beech trees and other plant life. The scientific explanation given for this was that last 50 million years, the earth has been cooling. About 14 million years ago, the climate was different in Antarctica. It was warmer than today – able to support life. Let's turn to...

Smoothseas provided a link to Frontline to prove his point on Global warming. This is what I found.   Okay all you people that want to destroy nations to save the Earth read this!   I have a copy of the real IPCC report on Global Climate Change. I will quote from it when needed. I also have a report from Frontline a PBS television propaganda network. I will quote from them as well seeing as some people here think that they tell us the truth.   Starting w...

One of these days I'm going to get caught up with posting these. It probably won't be until I'm done writing them.  When I'm home.  In July. -- 06 May 2008.  8:27pm. The sky is dark, clouded, full of pregnant cumulonimbi ready to burst and shower forth mountains of wet progeny as I make my way through the thinly-wooded park.  The smoothed rocks on the uneven path are slick, and my shoes slip and slide as I attempt to climb the steep incline. Back home I wouldn'...

It is easy to reduce a person’s carbon footprint and America should be congratulated for doing the right thing.     For every terrorist killed we have reduced the carbon footprint of that terrorist. Man exhales two liters with every breath taken that is a lot of carbon released. So every terrorist killed saves the planet. What an environmentally friendly way for America to behave. In getting rid of these dirt bags they are protecting the nation and the environment aro...
