Except if you look at historical data, global warming IS a precursor to the ice age!

The ENTIRE HISTORY OF THE EARTH IS INSANITY!

Some people seem to think there is no effect from their cause. It is easier to pretend nothing is going on and that there is no global warming.

Some think they can control what the earth does though. They are all crazy.

CO2 is a killer.

"Average global temperatures are expected to increase by 2°F to 11.5°F by 2100, depending on the level of future greenhouse gas emissions."
Future Climate Change | Climate Change | US EPA

I don't believe the above temperature increases, are calculated with/by released frozen methane (rather I believe they are only calculated with/by human released CO2.)


CO2 caused global warming, could cause 1 million species of plants and animals to go extinct in the near future.
BBC NEWS | Science/Nature | Climate risk 'to million species'


"Scientists predict that a 3.6 degree Fahrenheit increase in temperature would wipe out 97 percent of the world's coral reefs."
Consequences of Global Warming - Global Warming Effects | NRDC


And these CO2 induced temperature increases could cause massive famines, ex.ex.ex. x100.

I received a billion carbon credits around four years ago from some kook site where folks would join and make up for my carbon footprint by not taking showers or burning fossil fuels on and on so I have done my part.

That's not how modern societies work. Sooner or later there will be a coordinated approach on the national and international level...

I have no idea what you are talking about, nor do I want to know about the weird sites you visit.
