but wow thats coooool to watch
it`s pressing the Restart button.
And Llamaalex: Right on!
We will have to move away from fossil fuel. At this momment, there is less and less each day and the price is going up. But the production price isnt and the saudis are getting richer and richer... may have too much power one day.And even if fossil fuel didnt cause global warming, it does affect the air quality, deacreses your lung capacity and makes syou sneeze black. Also linked to cancer, but that is like evrything else...
Refusing the evidence and being wrong could be casatrofic while acting now (but still reasonably) will only haste a bit the inevitable fossil fuel weaning.
I say better safe then sorry.
In the late PreCambrian period (c.700Mya), the entire planet was frozen. I mean one big ice cap from pole to equator. If you could have observed earth from space, it would have looked like a giant pearl.
By the early Cretaceous (c.135Mya), things had reversed, and the global climate was tropical from pole to pole. There were no ice-caps, and the entire planet was covered in warm tropical seas.
Point is, this was a looooong way before people came along. The climate naturally varies wildly, by natural processes.
So Pielle (I had a go at citrus earlier, so only fair that I have a go at you now), don`t presume that global climate change is caused by human effects. Global wamring is real. The Question is, how much is due to us?
Personally, I think the answer is "Very Little". Climate Change is natural, and very little to do with people, if we recycle, what type of car we drive, etc etc.
and yeah it`s glaciar perito moreno in the south or arg.
Before I start, I`m a professional geoscientist, so I know what I`m talking about. First off, this is the annual summer melting of the Perito Moreno Glacier (not an "iceberg off the coast of Argentina" as per the description), and has little to do with global warming.
Secondly (directed at you, citrus), "The Great Global Warming Swindle" is even worse than "An Inconvenient Truth" in terms of distorting the scientific facts (although both are guilty) to meet the requirements of the preconceived message. Each movie/pseudo-documentary tries to convince the watcher that there is a "scientific consensus" on global warming one way or the other. The truth of the matter is, the jury is still out among us earth scientists.
(but with who?)
I am not a environmental activist and I dont care if Llamaalex burns a bag of kittens, I just think that GW is not something to be taken lightly. There is a scientific concensus at the momment, if you are to oppose global warming, bring some sound facts.
And yes I realize 222 other people probably said the same exact thing I just said But idc. im not going to go through every single message and read messages that was typed by someone who thinks they know something on the subject so they had to make a long winded session and crap.
*runs in circles*
and global warming does exist... but humans arnt causing the problem... refer the guy on the first page... if you havent read it yet...
it was as boring as well... watching ice melt
the vid is really cool though :-) I loved watching the falling ice chunks get successively larger until the grand finale!
Video didn`t work for me, but I`ll go back and try it again in... *gulp*... IE. *sigh*
"If I can just hammer this square peg into this round hole hard enough...."
I`m all for saving the planet, but this is clip shows a re-occurring phenomenon. The only thing "stupid and dangerous" is to jump to conclusions...any conclusion...especially when it`s inspired by whatever holy war you happen to be involved in.
You rant and rave like a lunatic, call people on this forum names, place them in the enemy camp, just because someone dares to mention that the clip probably had nothing to do with global warming?
Who`s the real dildo, Pielle
So shut up about global warming
and before you give me any of that be part of the solution not the problem rubbish there is nothing that makes me want to pollute more than people like you blaming EVERYTHING on global warming. So you be part of the solution, don`t make me burn a bag of kittens.
Obviously, it is the river that is boring a hole trought the ice. But why is this river there? And why does it have that intensity? That river is porbably glacier meltwater and is probably much stronger then usual because of the warmer temperatures.
There is nothing in the images that can tell us if the observed phenomena is naturaly occuring and constant among the years. But the earth`s glacier`s ARE melting, and the earth IS warming up. There is a CONSENSUS umong the scientif comunity about these things. Get YOUR facts straigth before your narrowminded blindness gets all of us to feel serious consequences. And when that happens, remember how much of a dildo you here for not beliving it and refusing to be part of/blocking the solution.
This was the result of the river boring a hole through the ice. Get the facts before your little brainwashed minds jump to conclusions.
The planet has been much warmer in the past and also much colder. With such wild swings it`s falacy to believe the earth`s biosphere won`t survive because of a slight global average temperature increase now.
Actually, it won`t even kill the humans (all of us anyway), just be really inconvenient as the climate changes make fertile land desert and deserts infertile. Imagine the Sahara becoming the breadbasket of the world, and northern Europe and America turned into a icy wasteland.
Not trying to neglect the southern hemisphere but, I don`t know what the changes in the currents would do to their climate.
Btw, I think that`s in Patagonia
