    Nothing to fear... it's not any kind of man made climate change.... right? because we all know we can trust Corporate paid scientists more than academic scientists. Just ask the Tobacco industry.

    BTW... I live in Pennsylvania.... and my wife and I drove up on a nearby mountain(hill... for those of you that live near the Rockies). We haven't drove up there in about two years. There is this area that boasts a modest waterfall... we took the dog and hiked a little ways to the fall.... just a trickle... nothing like it was just two years ago... and we have had plenty of rain this year. We haven't had hardly any decent snow for 5-6 years now.

    I'm sorry... I believe it's our own doing.

    We've been industrialized for what, about a hundred years or so right?

    The earth has been here for billions of years right?

    Dino's have farted more methane into the ozone than we could dream of. Volcanos and mother nature in general have produced far more toxins than we have in our measly 100 years.
    The earth goes through natural cycles every 10k years or so.
    Mini ice ages occur naturally. Etc, etc


    And its our fault? Right

    Yes... we've been industrialized for about 100+ years. So what? The dinosaurs have nothing on our collective pollution. Volcanoes only happen every so often... but Industry runs 24/7/365 days a year for 100 years.

    Yep... Those Corporate scientists are way better than the rest of them... I'm going to go grab another pack of cigarettes.... they are good for you.

    Volcanic activity releases gases without any eruptions. And early in earths history eruptions were a daily thing. Sometimes the volcanoes flowed and erupted for weeks and even months without interuption. And Dino farts as funny as that sounds contributed millions of tons of methane. As did their decaying bodies. There are bodies of water on this earth that release huge amounts of methane gas. Enough to kill entire villages of sleeping humans. If your going to join the global warming club you need all the facts.
