• Assuming the EPA continues with their insanity of declaring carbon dioxide a "dangerous pollutant", we will all be guilty of polluting the air every time we exhale, as will all other warm-blooded mammals. Combine this with the irrefutable fact, documented hundreds of times from the geologic records, that increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide FOLLOW global warming. Since I have to believe that the global warming alarmists are well aware of this, yet continue to confuse cause and effect, I can only conclude that there is a hidden agenda at work here.

  • I think we need to study this for a little more time to see if what is happening is man made or just cycles the planet goes through. !50 years of data is hardly enough to come up with a conclusion. 1 major volcanic eruption puts more gasses into the atmosphere than we can in hundreds of years. This planet goes through natural cycles of hot and cold every few thousand years. in the early 1700's we went through a cold spell that was called the year with out a summer. this was before the indusrial revolution. We must study ice cores from greenland and antartica going back over 100,000 years before we can really say what is going on. IMO we can not effect the climate to the extent that modern science is saying. The only major effect we are having is deforestation. we need to stop cutting down the rain forests if we want to remove co2 from the air. We need to plant more trees and promote green zones in our cities. We also need to take into account that the earth wobbles on its axis in a 15,000 to 25,000 year cycle this puts areas that are dry closer or farther away from the equator this will have to be compared to the ice cores to see how the climate changes from this as well. It is known from studying geologic evidence that this planet has had warm spells and ice ages through out history with greenhouse gas levels much higher and lower than today. So lets do our homework before we spend vast sums of money on something we can't control. we should be worried more about our wiping ourselves out with war than about climate change because if nobody is left alive nobody will care about the climate.

  • I agree completely. There are lots of climate cycles and this phenomenon isn't new.
