    Al Gore says global warming is a planetary emergency. It is difficult to see how this can be so when record low temperatures are being set all over the world. In 2007, hundreds of people died, not from global warming, but from cold weather hazards.

    Yes, it blows the mind how so many people mindlessly follow the dictates of the likes of Al Bore...who cannot actually prove his theories...nobody can truely predict what is going to actually happen with the planet.

    Some scientists today are more worried about global cooling than warming. Cooling would be more of a problem for us than warming. Some say a mini-ice age could arrive in as little as ten years from now due to sunspot activity or lack thereof.

    Personally, I'm glad to see Al worried about global warming, maybe he'll stay out of politics, and therefor our lives.

    Truly, the guy is a "head case".:cuckoo:

    This would be good, if true. Do you have a link to the data? All the data I have seen are indicative of warmer temperatures. Remember we are talking about climate, not weather.

    I think that the globe is warming but I think that man has contributed as must to it as a grain of sand alters the flow if a river. There have been ice ages followed by warm spells followed by ice ages followed by warming spells for the past million years, long before the first automobile was made. Man’s contribution to climate change has been infinitesimal.

    Well, we were able to make a hole in the ozone... it was a good size, and it didn't take us that long to do it. Plus, I think Al Gore's movie/slide show said it would get very COLD, not hot when ice caps melted and fell into the oceans. They are melting currently of course, but perhaps they will stop?

    You can't dispute or prove a theory by one years data.


    If you are going to make an educated response on this issue you need to get the names of those for and against and then compare credentials and affiliations.

    I know damn well that man can affect the environment in localized areas. Ever fly a helicopter above the smog in Los Angeles?
