We're coming out of an ice age...this trend has been going on forever. Why does everyone just ignore that?

in britain, we just had the coldest winter and summer in 60 years. we would love some global warming over here...

We're not f*cked. Our great-great-great-great grandchildren are f*cked, and since I'll never know them, I don't care.

I love it, an Aussie arguing with Davy even when he can see with his own eyes that Australia is going through the worst drought in living memory.
"Nah It cant be happening here, we've still got tinnies to drink."

We are F*cked. That is all.

davymid your missing the other part of the graph the earth has been getting hotter then it gets cooler then an ice age comes then it gets warmer then it gets to what were experiencing im not sure if it will get any hotter but it will come down soon and then in a matter of a few 100 years or so there will be another ice age this has been hapening forever

"Really? Interesting. Assume they haven't yet discovered advanced climatic science then?"

"No sir, apparently they're pretty advanced, for their age. Scientific Process is well established. Seems like 98% of their professional climatologists who are claiming that the planet is heading for a global warming disaster are being ignored in favour of political hacks and right-wing media"

"Really?"

"Yep. Data shows their polar ice-caps are f*cked, sir."

"Damn, that's disappointing. Alright, thanks for the update, keep searching. There must be intelligent life here SOMEWHERE"

"Hey, Zarqon, come look at this. Sensors are picking up advanced lifeforms on the third planet of the Sol system!"

"Heeeey, you're right! Pick up their media, what's the analysis?"

"Umm, post-industrial, some space technology. Still in Carbon Age. But wait, there's a large amount of chatter on their radiowaves of how their atmosphere isn't being screwed by pumping 28 billion tonnes of CO2 into their atmosphere every year... sounds like they're blaming it on their star, or ignoring it completely."

Anomly against what?

Against global mean temperature. This ain't rocket science.

Viking, here's your data from before 2000. See that little green line? That's "Global Cooling" over the last 10 years...

According to NASA's thermal imaging, the earth has been getting cooler (with exception of Australia, but no one cares about those kangaroo humpers) for the past10 years, I couldn't find data for anytime before 2000.

Okay, there may be some Green-Freaks that tell you man is the only cause of Global Warming and all of Earth's woes.

Then there will be some Anti-Green-Freaks that tell you Global Warming is in no way caused by man.

The truth is that Global Warming is caused by both Nature and Man. Nature is definately causing a warming trend. That is undeniable. We can see it. But it is also undeniable that all humans are doing, with CO2 and Methane and pollution are also hurting the earth. It is undeniable.

Global warming will occur naturally no matter what we do. But unless we change, we will speed it up to a point of no return.

Plus, I'd rather live without smog in the atmosphere, wouldn't you?

Uranium is one of the most abundant elements in the earth's crust: it is 500 times more common than gold.

Yeah, but if you read on, most of that is found in rivers, oceans, etc. It's disseminated, not concentrated into minable uranium deposits. Iron is one of the most abundant elements in the crust, but we don't mine it from everywhere, just where there are concentrated deposits. It's not cost effective to do otherwise.

Yeah, what OldOllie said - I'm talking about 10 years' supply of naturally occuring U-235. Beyond that you need breeder reactors, which are dangerous (they use sodium as a coolant, which is extremely explosive in contact with water... think Chernobyl raised to the power of the current Gulf of Mexico clusterf*ck, but with nuclear fallout rather than oil). They also produce more plutonium-239, which can be used to make nuclear weapons.

The major pronuclear report by MIT (2003), "The Future of Nuclear Power" considers that fast breeders will not be a significant part of the nuclear industry for several decades, because they are even more expensive than conventional nuclear power stations. One of the reasons why they are more expensive is that they are more dangerous.

It seems climate change is natural (there was a mini ice age in Europe dring the middle ages) but our pollution and green house gases (green house gases are the main reason Venus is so inhospitable) is speeding it up.
Can't wait for nuclear fusion to be a viable energy source.

Uranium reactors run on Uranium-235, an isotope making up only about 0.72% of natural uranium. It's expensive to enrich Uranium to get high enough levels of U-235 to use in reactors. With the exception of the extremely rare isotope uranium-234 (0.0054%), the other ~99% is U-238. It's worthless as reactor fuel, but you can convert it to Plutonium-239 by bombardment with slow neutrons in a breeder reactor. If we use Plutonium to fuel our reactors, we can make enough to last for a very, very long time.

See the sky is falling. There can be global warming.

The people who devote themselves to the debate over whether it is or isn't happening are missing the point of the actual debate, which is the degree to which human behavior influences a natural climatic trend. I wonder if the neolithic primitives were this stupid when the last glacial maximum occurred.

"Look, Ug not need animal fur. No can be global cooling."

Primitives.

Actually, you can - you store it BEFORE generating.


... damn you and your pedantry :P
What I meant was that you can't store electricity which is generated for the national grid. So we are both right.
