    Apparently COW'S are responsible for vast quantities of methane that damages the ozone - over farming of these farty beast's is causing a huge "natural" problem.

    CRAZY FACT; Y'know the lead singer from The Troggs, Reg Presley, ("Wild Thing !") he's a madcap inventor and crop circle expert .. well, he's invented a way of capturing those bottom burps from cows and turning them into an energy source... along the lines of a hot air ballon type thing.

    Man v nature - Nature is up 10 points, with the clock counting !

    I'll try and find a link to Reg's inventions.

    as for the whole global warming issue. We're all to blame but George Bush or whoever won't sign that agreement is a fucking idiot

    we need some action pretty fast

    THE END OF THE WORLD IS NIGH.

    Well, according to Sir Isaac Newton (The Gravity Guy) anyway.

    He claims that a Meteor will wipe us out in December 2063, and this guy is the most respected scientist ever.

Global warming is here and will only get better if we admit it is here to stay. End of story. If you don't believe in it yet, just watch Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth": the scientifically true stats will scare you shitless.

    We need to find cleaner sources of energy and use up less carbon fuels. The US is one of the biggest contributors to CO2 gasses in the world, and remember, didn't sign up to the Kyoto Treaty, another genius move by Bush. For me, the only way we can decrease the trend is by having cars that don't run on fuel. Wind turbines and all these alternative energy gimmicks won't save us unless we do something about car emissions. Why? Because as India and China become increasingly urbanised and richer, they'll want big cars and big houses just like the rest of us have enjoyed for decades. When that amount of population (BILLIONS) want what we have, this planet will be fucked. Just calling it as it is.
    Global warming is NOT a fact--why were these same scientists predicting another ICE AGE only 30-40 years ago?

    It's funny you cite Al Gore as the speaker of truth--the same Al Gore who invented the internet, among other things.

    After Hurricane Katrina hit the US last year, 2006 was supposed to be another monster year for hurricanes reaching the US.

    What happened?

    NOT ONE hit America this year.

    How can scientists predict hurricanes when any meteorologist cannot predict a forecast with a great deal of accuracy beyond 3 days?

    There's a book called The Skeptical Environmentalist by Bjorn Lomborg (who used to be a Greenpeace member) that debunks a lot of the research that everybody else is so fond of citing.

    Bush not signing Kyoto is a good thing. How many of the countries that have signed the Kyoto treaty are actually abiding by it? Do you think that China is going to follow it--no, they're doing as they please. Do you see any protests about pollution--go over there and see how much gets accomplished.

    And China, except for the ruling elite, and those in Hong Kong, can ill afford big cars & other luxuries. That money is going towards arms buildups.

    Dude, it's pretty obvious something is going on because the weather patterns are completely fucked & there's no denying this.
    It was about 10 degrees last night, now its back up to 55 degrees today & even warmer temps expected on Sunday. It's freaking December!
    The weather has been so randomly up & down, with spring & fall pretty much non-existent these last couple years.
    People need to be responsible and think about the enviornment and the damage we are all, undoubtedly, doing.
    Do we need ten zillion super-sized SUV's?
    No one is accountable and we are just focused on the here & now.
    Bush & his cronies have done pretty much everything wrong since stepping into office, and their irresponsibility towords long term enviornmental issues is right in step with everything else they've either ignored or screwed up.
    Everyone from corporations, to politicians, to everyday citizens want everything today. They don't think long term or what effect their decisions will have on the future.
    If there's money to be made, screw the consequences.

    About the only thing I have in common with the left is their concern for the environment. That being said, short-term dramatic changes in weather are not an unheard of thing. Does anyone remember the what they called the Little Ice Age? The global temperature dropped dramatically in a short period of time, and for three (or four) centuries unusually cool weather persisted. It was the Little Ice Age that made Greenland, once suitable for farming, practically unihabitable. Fifty years before Columbus, the last of the Norsemen left Greenland.

    And that my dear friends is not normal.. But then again it ever so happens once in awhile that we have weird weather years in between.... But yeah I would say also that the climat is changing but when you look back in history, that's normal !
    What is dessert now used to be ocean etc etc...so it's a normal proces I believe and we are helping it a hand by speeding it up with our pollution .

    Yeah, something is not right with mother nature. A lot of people around my area are talking about this, especially in light of the crazy weather patterns over the last couple years.
    If you watch the Al Gore film, regardless of your stance on the issue, there's no denying not all of it is crap. A lot of folks just don't want to be faced with a mess they have helped create, or they don't care because they will be dead by the time things get really bad.
    Even Black Sabbath weighed in on the issue with the telling "Into the Void."
