instrumental record? ever thought back about 1000000 years when dinosaurs were alive? 120 degrees avg.oh, and you know that co2 is less that one percent of one percent of the atmospheres makeup[/quote]
Well, it was a direct retort to a specific claim. And yes, climate change on a geological timescale is one thing. The RATE at which we are seeing climate change and alteration of our atmospheric makeup right now is, best we can tell, completely unprecedented in the geological record. And dinosaurs died out 65 million years ago, not 1.

but back to the post - love the last pic.
Utter bollocks, a downright lie. Eleven of the last twelve years rank among the top 12 warmest years in the instrumental record. Fact.

I`m sure the media is sheltering you from this information. They admit to "Tricks", "hide the decline", and "deleting data".
The last ten years the global temperature has dropped. And if you haven`t noticed, The last couple of winter have been colder than normal.And Al Gore is getting wealthy while burning 10 times the energy of a normal house.
@ buxo 216 - :D@ Negative One - Google 2012 (not the lame movie).
What are you, a fu*king idiot, or are you trying to make a topical joke about a lame recent movie?
We just need to wake the hell up.
i love the clear blue skies
Still though, incredible pictures.
That analogy is awful. There haven`t even been 17 million dollar winners.
17000 of them, Arb. 17000.
The trouble I think is that not that many people *want* to go to the moon again or to Mars. If there is public interest, the politicians will follow it.
It was the space race that created the telecommunications industry that produced the Internet. Think of where we`d be if NASA`s modest budget had been cut years ago.
NASA`s budget this year was $17.2 billion. Just 17.2. A tiny, tiny fraction of the healthcare reform, or the stimulus package, or the war. And the benefits the space program has on science (which we are falling behind in) and economy (which is also in the gutter) are far beyond the price.
that was awesome
Me too. It`s very peaceful and serene looking. I love that kind of environment. :)
hell, lets just give it all to NASA! all the programs are taking cuts, ALL of them.
I would hate to see anything happen to the space program, but if push comes to shove, I would rather be able to get sufficient medical treatment, see my friends in one piece from the war(which includes them coming home, physical and mental care), my little brothers and god kids to be able to attend school for a full day with more than adequate teachers and school supplies in the classroom, and for them to get a college education at a reasonable price than speculations about whether Mars might be inhabitable or not. Maybe I`M the crazy one.
no one group in government is to blame for any one thing, Dems AND Repubs are at fault for a lot of poo.
and about ACORN and such, no program is perfect, but they are trying their damnest to help thos
Hypothesis of rednecks: Scientists made up global warming so giant corporations could steal your money.
Those pictures are pretty amazing though, especially the last one.
I mean that`s cool.
I have even higher quality photos downloaded straight from NASA, Check out their website sometime. Most are large enough you could make sofa size prints from them. (Takes a really big printer) :-)
You call 14 dead astronauts "a good run?" I`m all for the space program, but the shuttle was a big stinking pile of $#!+. Good riddance.
We need a new heavy lifter NOW! Don`t count on Obama and the Democrats to fund it unless they can figure out a way to funnel the money to ACORN and SEIU.
"Very nice, we need to support Obama and get our Earth healthy!"
*smack* Seriously? You had to being him into thisâ€½ What the hell, manâ€½ Stay on topic!
That said - these are amazing - The ISS is one of those things that you understand is up there, you see it from time to time when they want to show it off at night with the panels extended, but you don`t actually APPRECIATE it until you see it in a photograph that`s that high quality.
There are PEOPLE in that thing!
