Mad_Gremlyn: I'd post all the links i have to prove that global warming is a hoax, but your cranium is as vacant as a singularity, so it'd be a waste of time.

MattPrince & paperduck: We already have too damn many environmental protections in place, they are choking our economy and shipping jobs overseas because of them. CO2 is not a pollutant, the only effect it has is make plants grow quicker, which is a bonus to farmers and the rain forest.

Sorry, but you've been scaremongered into believing there is a 'crisis' that doesn't exist. Plus, we are finding new sources of oil, natural gas, and coal daily, we are not going to 'run out' of those sources within our lifetimes or our children's lifetimes.

no, we are smaller than sh*t to the Universe. Our sun, is nothing more than sh*t to the Universe.

green companies bring more to the table than 'saving the planet'. energy independence in the short term, renewable energy sources in the long term. which is absolutely essential because our current sources of energy will (not might, WILL) run out.

crakrjak that's what people were saying when they were dumping crap into rivers and lakes. how could humans ever disrupt it? well it turned out we can, we realized this when rivers and lakes caught fire or all living things died in them.

Think of the atmosphere as a really big lake, it can handle more crap. we should now know that thinking it's not possible for humans to disrupt its balance is naive. If we realize this only after an 'ah ha moment' event where we realized dumping hazardous chemicals into lakes was bad, it will be too late, because we are living in this 'lake' and there's only one of it.

How Big Are Solar Flares? Can't remember, haven't worn them since the early 80s.

I love space stuff, especially when it makes you realize you are basically the equivalent of sh*t in the Universe.

Spider_sol's brain is not massive, but he is denser than a solar flare. Whereas a solar flare is massive, just not very dense. Everything is relative.

Crakrjak. That's like driving a car saying car-crashes have been caused by other things than having your eyes shut. There is no proof that shutting your eyes causes car crashes. Look I'll shut my eyes whilst I'm driving...

apedrana: I'm saying that fluctuations in temperature are not anthropogenic (caused by humans) and have been cyclical for millions of years. Thus, If humans aren't causing it then we shouldn't be enriching 'green companies' at the expense of our economy, especially right now when our economy is in the dumps.

Think of it this way, Does it make sense to buy expensive lobsters, when you're living on food stamps, just because pork, chicken and beef are supposedly worse for the environment ?

spider_sol, it's the largest explosion in the solar system, equivalent to millions of nuclear bombs going off at once. do you think jupiter is massive? it's gaseous too but it certainly is very massive, well a large solar flare is like 10 jupiters.

Why oh why couldn't he just add in the side note that "massive" isn't the best term as it means large and heavy (more literally having lots of mass) and solar flares are gaseous and therefore, relatively, not "heavy."

So what your saying Crackrjak, is that we should be trying to stop solar flares instead of trying to reduce our CO2 emissions?

Does anybody else feel like that dude said the numbers 4 times as fast as as any other words?

Now you know why these 'sunspots' have a major role in our global temperature and climate, CO2 has a tiny effect compared to the energy the sun emits.

Recent research at CERN even confirms that the cosmic rays from the sun effects cloud formation. Here

@greenbasterd

That magnetic field doesn't protect our thousands of satellites that we need for every day things or the astronauts like he said in the video haha.
