    Riddle me this...

    Why is it so bad that man-made global warming is going to kill the Earth?
    Assuming everything you guys keep saying is true, the Earth's icecaps melt, oceans will boil, humans will die off, and worse yet all life will eventually die off, why is that a bad thing?

    After all, you lefties believe that all organic life just randomly sprung out of an inorganic world in the first place. Who is to say once all life is destroyed as a result of mankind it won't happen again, "acids" will randomly combine and get struck by lightening and viola!, life starts over! And surely next time the natural universe won't fuck up again and create humans again. Problem solved.

    Well, Hawk, were you actually to research what the scienitists are actually saying, you might not come off as such a dumb asshole. But then, dumb assholes don't like to do research.

    Even if you accept the weak science of AGW, there is no research that can quantify how much and how fast it can be reversed, it at all.

    So all you are left with is de-industrialization and poverty with nothing to show for it.

    By what we have observed at present, there is a 30 to 50 year lag in the full effects of the present level of GHGs. So were we magically able to cease emitting GHGs, it would still continue to warm for at least another 30 years, and would take a couple of centuries to start to return to pre-industrail temperatures.

    As for the idea of de-industrailization, people like yourself are the only ones talking such nonsense. We do not need to burn fossil fuels for our energy needs. There are multiple other resourses available, and the technology to harvest those resources is presently available. Of course, some very large international corperations would see their cash cow gored.

    Now as for your false statement concerning the 'weakness' of the science behind AGW. AGW is such a weak theory, scientifically, that the Scientific Societies of the world, all the Academies of Science of the world, and all the major Universities of the world, have stated that AGW is real and a clear and present danger.

    The "False Dilemma" fallacy?!?! Who says "de-industrialization and poverty" are the only other result? AGW is about living smarter, not lowering standards. It's mostly about holding the line so things don't get worse. After all, any rise in GHGs means a rise in absorbed energy. Given that it has to go somewhere and statistically only 50% is likely to be re-emitted into space, what would the other 50% be doing?

    "AGW is about living smarter, not lowering standards."

    i feel scientific standards have indeed been lowered in propping up the arguments on which AGW is based.

    Which you have astutely pointed out in other threads, much to the shagrin of Old Rocks and the other greenhouse gas global crusaders!!! Politically right now, they are about as healthy as zombies in a cemetary.

    One of them "other resources" would be nuclear energy right?


    One other thing.... How on earth did the other ice ages come and go? What caused the heating and cooling centuries before us parasytes came along?
    Oh.... I know.... it was aliens right? They came and did some hokey pokey magic UFO stuff huh?

    God you global warming idiots are stupid lemmings.... I just dont want to be strapped in with you all as you drive us right off a cliff.

    You mean like the scientific fact that the Earth has already been much warmer in many different periods of its history? Facts the enviro-mentals keep omitting from their arguements?

    I have never once disputed that the earth is warming. It is fact that it is, as it has been naturally since the last ice age.

    You also failed to answer my question. What does it matter if everything dies since it all randomly sprung into being?

    Human existance is but a blink in the timeline of the earth.
    It appears we have had mass extinctions a few times in earths history.
    It may well happen again.
    According to Samson squids will be the next dominent species.
