High-5! I couldn't agree more =)

I think people tend to become quick to blame over situations they have no control over. They feel helpless, but yes I do believe the earth is warming up all right, but I also think it would have gone through a cycle even if man never lived on it..

I remember a few years ago on the local news station they were talking about that. Cow farts destroying the ozone! Oh no! The best part was they had an animation with little cow-shaped drawings releasing green cloud-shaped drawings with a big "M" in the middle, floating up to the sky and destroying little "O" things. It was hilarious.

I could use some of that heat from the hot-bandwagon. It's frigid here (by California standards, anyhow). I want Global Warming now! It's too dang cold.

I guess it depends on where you are. Here in the Silicon Valley we're having a super cold winter. But then, we had a hot summer, and people who've lived here a while know that when we have a super hot summer we then have a super cold winter. Nothing new, just the way it's always been =)

Good! Panic is the worst thing we can do. It motivates people to act, sure, but it motivates them to act without thinking. Baaaad bad bad. All bad.

You know, the latest I heard on global warming,
and I swear I'm not making this up, is that scientists have done a study that blames cow flatulence for global warming.

That's right -- all those future rib eyes and filets are busily eating oats and soy beans and farting their little tufted asses off, creating a ruich layer of methane that is melting polar ice caps.

Makes about as much sense to me as the rest of the arguments...

UH, now all the so-called experts are saying the coming summer will be

the hottest yet..figures..we're having a warm winter thanks to el-nino, so hop on board the heat wagon and join in...

not me..all it would take would be one big mass of cold acrctic air to cool everyones' heels...my prediction for the summer: cooler than usual...we shall see....

Hmmm

It is January 5 and we have still been wearing light weight jackets. I never packed away my sleeveless shirts and actually wear them often. Our heating bills are way down. Yup, it's getting warmer than ever.

You are right there are lots of factors involved. However, since the air just keeps getting crappier and people keep developing more lung problems, cancers, unexplained autism,  etc. I am for anything that results in less pollution.

I totally see where you are coming from here...
One thing that kills me is all of the people that speak on these subjects that really don't have the first idea of what they are talking about.  I refuse to panic, all I can do is do my part.  If that's not enough, panic isn't going to help anything..

You make a lot of sense.

You know, that's really what I was trying to get across in this one. There's so much hoo-haa on both sides that it's ridiculous. And as for the car, well hey, as long as your not denouncing the oil companies as the spawn of Satan there's no hypocrisy =)

I was just thinking about this issue the other day, having heard "experts" on both sides, each poo-pooing the other!  They both sounded like viable arguments to a dimwit like me, so the whole thing raised more questions than it answered. I would tend to agree that we actually are doing some pretty good damage, but who knows to what extent?  All I know is that I have to drive 20 miles to work and public transport here is shit.  Maybe I'll buy a hybrid one of these days.
