Yes, people who go on about how Humans are the problem blah blah blah just Die already....and Sometimes they might melt we only been looking at it for 100 years. agian I'm not concerned, less ice is better. it'll get cold again in a few months. this just surface ice which most of melts every year that sheet is miles thick... not losing sleep over it but go ahead don't use a plastic bag do your part.


I'm actually amazed a human being can wedge his head that firmly up his ass. :picard:

Odd to go that far over the top when in fact methane gas releases from cows are in fact a significant contributor of greenhouse gases what with methane apparently being 20x as effective at keeping in the heat as CO2.

Also, a pure insult is certainly not on topic nor is it considered respectful. If you want to call out others for not following board rules consider leading by example.

And if people want to say foolish things, without doing even a modicum of research, like a cursory Google search, before spouting foolish nonsense, then they'll be made to look foolish by their own words, as Mr. Lincoln suggested.

I'm not denying climate change.. I know it changes, that ice has melted before. I'm not worried. but again I don't know how many times I have to say this. If all the people who think Humans are the problem will kill themselves to lead the way to change then and only then will I think you are serious about your cause. Otherwise you're all just a bunch of hypocrites and polluting the Earth.


I didn't think it was possible but we have a new winner for stupidest post in this thread award. Why did it win you ask? Well readers, this post has a bit of everything a complete lack of understanding of basic science, a self serving I'm better then you attitude and best of all it encourages mass suicide. This last ones a new one for me and really goes far to show the posters true charector. For his "efforts" can someone please give this man a prize. I'm suggesting perhaps a tinfoil hat to go with his collection.

I am nobody's knight in shining armour however while perhaps suggesting that cows farting causes global warming might be an oversimplification it is none the less not all that hard to google "agricultural contribution to greenhouse gases" and see that for example much of the methane in your graph is probably from methane released from agriculture.

A decent article on the subject...

http://blogs.das.psu...in-perspective/

How much of that "decay of biomass" and "methane" in your graph is from ruminant agriculture? I would guess a large portion.

It's one thing to act high and mighty but to call out something that is actually correct only makes one person look the fool....

It's not 'correct'

While methane release from cows is a contributor to the overall greenhouse gas buildup, which among other contributors leads to global warming which is related to climate change....it is not the 'cause' of climate change.....it's not even 'the cause' of global warming, nor even close to the largest past or current contributor of the modern accumulation of greenhouse gases.

Let's put it this way. Anyone who doubts the existence of zombies needs only visit a mental ward in which Thorazine is regularly prescribed. You can google the term "Thorazine shuffle" for more information. It has now been all but restricted from being administered any way but intravenously. That **** will **** you up.

So you posted an irrelevant quote that didn't address either of us, even though you quoted my post, but which you didn't intend it for or to me?

Well ya exactly. It's a contributor but not the cause. It's A cause though.

So certainly not so far in left field to get a glib response. Lead by example if you want thoughtful conversation.
