shneeblefish: Don`t believe someone just because they can make a graph.

Little Known Fact: Canada creates the northern lights. We export them to various countries if the weather permits the transport of these fragile goods.

Don`t tell anyone.

Northern Lights are AWESOME!
They change colours, they move around, legend has it that they even make sounds! lolz!
Anyhow, no picture or video can capture just how awesome they really are, in a very dark place, on a moon-less night... please do come to Canada and see them! :)

"Global warming does not exist. Global climate change does, and it is NOT man made!"
There was a graph I saw once. On it were the average global temperature and the years. The temperature change correlated with the appearance and disappearance of sunspots. The interesting thing was that the graph stopped before the industrial revolution. Someone had gathered the relevant data and extended the graph to approximately the present day, and you know what? It spiked waaaay past its highest previous level and the most recent part of it was about 10 times higher than it was before.

In conclusion:
Global warming doesn`t exist? My @55 it doesn`t.

nonamewillfi: that`s a natural phenomena that is caused when a giant barrage of charged particles from the sun comes in contact with the magnetic field of the earth, resulting in that green glow. it`s been happing a LOOOOONG time before we got a chance to screw things up.

The speed would have nothing to do with the quality of the picture, nor would the darkness of space. The picture taker just jiggled the camera a tiny bit when he took the picture.

It`s kinda hard to take a nice clear picture when you`re scooting around at 60,000km/h; especially when it`s in a near-dark environment like, oh, space.
Chances are, one of the astronauts took this with a typical P&S camera.

"aurora borealis, at this time of the year...in your kitchen!?!"

I love it. And it reminds me of a time when the Simpsons were funny enough to watch. And I remember this quote pretty well:
"Aurora Borealis? At this time of year? At this time of day? In this part of the country? Localized entirely within your kitchen?"

The cool thing about what you said, cobrakiller, is that we do have a shield around our planet and it is the reason the aurora happens.

okay, to clear this up, global warming means more extreme weather... hotter summers and rainy, snowy winters.
