    Right now it is really hot here the sun is shining and the temperature is 30 Celsuis in the shadow (just so you can any idear how hot it really is in the sun)
    I Scanning around the net and find this

    Europe's heatwave claims victims
    Heatwave breaks record for July
    No relief for South, Southern Plains
    Power outages interrupt train, air service in New York

    And i start to thinking about the american denial of such things as global warming, or how should i see the ongoing bashing against the Kyoto protocol.
    What to do in the future how to adapt to this weather cycle?
    I stood in a shower for an hour yesterday evening and still felt too hot a few minutes after i done that.

    Maybe if you thought about all the people who starved in the last mini-ice age you will feel better.

    or the next one

    The Earth has been "warming" up since the last Ice Age, not just the last 100 years.

    And George W. Bush signing a Kyoto Protocol isn't going to reverse that.

    And he's not going to. On the other hand, is there one developed country that did sign it, that is anywhere close to meeting the 'mandates?' :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao:

    Oh things would be so much better if the US had signed....

    My head is boiling right now the temperature raised to 31 celsius in the shadow. Only single clouds and no sign of rain in a near future here.

    LOL. On going bashing. :laugh:


    Even Canada had to buy credits from Russia in order to avoid fines. Nothing like the 'appearence' of compliance to shut the populace up.


    More good stuff here: http://www.eia.doe.gov/emeu/cabs/franenv.html
    You'll also notice, in the above article, it is stated that while industry is not the biggest polluter, they are expected to make the required adjustments.



    Here, just look at the charts for yourself.http://ec.europa.eu/environment/climat/emission/citl_en.htm

    If I say yes, does that justify wasting a natural resource then bitching about the rejection of the Kyoto treaty? Yer French ain’t ya?:)
