    Ironic that you should post this as I am sitting here looking at the BLIZZARD currently in progress outside my office window.

    It was over quickly.. :cof:

    I still can't figure out if it's global warming or the coming ice age we are supposed to worry about.

    Didn't you see the movie? It's global warming that's going to cause the ice age.

    So what caused the last ice age?



    Was it the lost civilization of Atlantis spewing out greenhouse gases? :happy2:

    Let me see if I have this right?? If there is global warming, the ice cap melts into the oceans' raising the water levels, and water temperature by a few degrees, thus causing another ice age. Which in theory probably would and has happened, but what scientists don't know is when this could happen, it could be 10 years or 100,000 years. According to them the earth follows no specific pattern to global changes as they previously thought.

    Don't worry. 6 billlion humans have no affect on the environment. All those billions of tonnes of pollutants that are put into the atmosphere every year are just an illusion! Or if not, then how could putting billions of tonnes of pollutants and carcinogens into the air have any affect on the environment?

    Tell China and India that. I'd love to convert my house to solar energy, and when the government gives me a tax incentive to do so I will :cof:
    I don't see myself riding a bike to work as my office is a good 45 miles from my house each way, and although I do work out just about everyday there is still no way I could bike it.
