    Yes I meant gravity. It is a slow process, changes will take a long time to be noticed in both the shortening of years and temperature.

    Slow process indeed, in fact, I think it's more likely that our planet will destabilize as a result of the moon's increased distance. you see, the only reason Earth is revolving nicely around it's ax is because the moon is keeping it in place, but because of the moon's own speed it's slowly slingshotting away from us.

    When that happens, we're all dead.

    There are so many things the universe can do to destroy us instantly... This planet hangs in a delicate symbiosis.

    I've always notice that people from the US are the ones who deny global warming the most. Why? Simply because:
    a) They're ignoramuses (this is the most common one)
    b) They don't believe in global warming because "god" does not allow it.
    c) They don't know they're the ones who contribute to it the most.
    d) They don't give a fuck.

    Or just see Al Gore's movie, it's good. Oh but you're probably Republicans so you won't see it hehe.

    Even Leonardo DiCaprio did a global-warming related movie.

    And so, Katrina wasn't a big sign for you? Or do you even care about those poor people?

    In the year 2030 there'll be a hurricane in Florida every 10 minutes.

    Denying global-warming is stupid to be honest.

    Ha, so true.

    I laugh at the ones who say that.

    And then say "Gaia wants you dead, ok?"

    :lol: yeah.

    Indeed.


    The funny thing is that most people that don't "believe" in global warming are either old or stupid, because all of my students at the Uni agree that global warming is a real threat. My Uni has a waste control plant and divides the garbage between paper, bottles and garbage, which is quite good :) .

    The older generations are used to not caring or worrying about it.

    For the record, I'm atheist, used to believe in global warning, Al-Gore is the carbon footprint king, I'm well educated on both arguments, and I'm not Republican.

    Leonardo DiCaprio says it's true so it must be true, right?
    Even though hurricanes were suppose to become more frequent and they didn't, that theory is a fact, right?


    You didn't make one point in that argument, you just called me an ignorant, Christian, Hummer driving, Republican... none of which is even true. There's proof that people have nothing to do with global warming, maybe you should look into it so that way you don't come into a debate with only Al Gore propaganda (most of which is false).

    Of course, if Leo says it it's the truth! Leo ist Gott!

    Nah, and some things about the Al Gore's documentary aren't true (like one of the thing he said of some mosquitoes, I forgot what it was about), but I think he still has quite strong points.

    How can we save the planet when we cannot save ourselves. Generally speaking, humans are out for themselves and always will be. Some choose to dedicate their lives to learning about and saving other species and others think broader. I know I feel powerless when every day I think of the atrocities that go on minute by minute on this planet.

    Nature is beautiful though. The forests, the oceans, the mountains... pure beauty.

    This heat wave in Florida is killing me! Damn global warming and man made disasters! Katrina was caused by evil Republicans! So was that tsunami that killed 100,000 people! None of these natural occurrences have ever happened before!! Look at all the hurri...oh wait nevermind..

    Give me a break, get your heads out of your asses and do some research. Man won't do anything worse to the planet than what the planet can do to itself. I think it is a safe bet to say that when earth gets tired of people fucking around with it, it will take itself back (read ice age).

    The only good thing to come from the global warming myth is that people actually do some decent things such as recycle, drive less, waste/burn less fuel, and overall not be pigs.

    Stop worrying about global warming and work on things like dragging yourselves out of poverty, or helping someone in need. Fucking stupid causes that people attach themselves too, that's why the world is fucked.

    Well, some of those are man-made disasters, and trying to stop global warming is a good cause IMO. And who says I don't help people in need? :)

    If Global Warming was real, it would be a good cause to try to stop it. However, its not, it's just a pointless cause with the right intentions.

    The actions associated with trying to stop global warming are good things, dont get me wrong.

    But man made global warming, in my opinion, is a farce.

    Even though I disagree, I would really like to know why you think that :) .

    I really think it is a mix of both man and nature. We haven't been on this earth long enough to understand some of the things that happen. The global climate change could simply be a natural cycle, but made worse due to the greenhouse gases man has placed in the atmosphere.

    The global climate fluctuation IS a natural cycle, but it goes more and more haywire because of humanity's actions...
