They say that ice age came from a meteorite hitting the earth, they sure say allot.

If there is no global warming, does it mean I still have to recycle ?

You wanna know what's happening to this planet? Open you eyes and follow the money.

'People need to have less things in life', says U.S. billionaire after flying into Davos on private jet with his wife, children and TWO nannies

*Jeff Greene made fortune betting against sub-prime mortgage securities
*He said: 'America's lifestyle expectations are far too high and need to be adjusted'
*Comments came as Greene flew into Switzerland on private jet with wife, children and two nannies in tow
*The skies above Switzerland have been crammed full with private jets

Americans need to have 'less things' in life, says billionaire Jeff Greene | Daily Mail Online

These are the people who would be in charge of reducing greenhouse gases. These folks wouldn't know a recycle bin if it fell on them, OK?

And my earlier comment still stands.

global warming i$ a $ham.

10,000 years back the great lakes were under a mile deep sheets of ice? where was man back then?

one million or so years farther back the tropics were as far north as Alaska. where was man then?

man has very little effect on how the earth temps are.

when the earth is tired of us she will wipe us out and start anew...again.

Well, I'm not a world-renowned climatologist. And I would be dollars to doughnuts that nobody else on this thread is either.

But when the professor emeritus of climatology at MIT says that the data is shoddy, the theory is politically driven, and that important dissenting voices have been silenced either through intimidation or firing, then a reflective person should sit up and listen.

I'm inclined to think so, but I'm deficient in the kind of expertise to make such an evaluation. Even more importantly, it would do no harm to conduct our civilization's affairs as if it were real.

There is a saying in the sciences: "Science advances one funeral at a time" (the quote is usually attributed to Max Planck) - meaning that the established old guard tenaciously holds on to older theories and reject newer theories and it takes "fresher" heads without the strong bias to existing theories for science theories to advance.

There are several excellent examples of this in my own field (geology) and I actually watched it happen with some of the work on Oregon/Washington tsunami/subduction zone earthquake work.
