My aching ass
WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE!!! (update #3,555,888)
Global warming, that insidious bastard, is gonna melt the polar ice caps but freeze great britain by killing the Gulf Stream. Now THAT'S what I call a real two-fisted attack by Mother Nature.
I'm not making this shit up, either:
The powerful ocean current that bathes Britain and northern Europe in warm waters from the tropics has weakened dramatically in recent years, a consequence of global warming that could trigger more severe winters and cooler summers across the region, scientists warn today.
If you read the entire article, you'll notice that the scare-mongering headline kinda dwindles off into a We Really Don't Know A Damn Thing conclusion, but that crap is typical of environmental reporting today. When there's no there there, there's still a scare.
Besides--- the guy who led the study is trumpeting all the bad news. Go figure. He must be angling for some more grant money.

Well, let's keep eating the cows, those dastardly eco-terrorists who fart methane gas. Only through massive steak consumption can we save Gaia.
I just read a book called "State of Fear" by Michael Crichton...addressing that very issue. It was a good read and he pretty much documented (I'm convinced) that global warming has nothing to do with us...instead it's not happening, for one, and for two, it would be part of the natural cycle of earth..that the earth is constantly changing anyway. Pretty much, we don't have a clue.
There was a "Little Ice Age" from approximately the mid 1300's through the mid 1800's.
Damn You, George Bush ! !
I am in the middle of "State Of Fear" right now, and did ya just blow the ending for me? The footnotes of facts are driving me to distraction.
I say we eat Gaia , now, and be done with it. *grins*
I just finished reading "State of Fear". I quit reading the footnotes early on.
Be sure to read the appendices.
