My best mate has been to take ice samples at the north pole he and his other half told me they have decided not to have kids because of what is
It is simple science more co2 more heat we are putting tons of stuff in the atmosphere and we have helped the process of global warming.
All this thread proves is we are not worth saving when the ignorant bleat loudest.
Don't know if this has ever occurred to you along the line, if not please either grab one of those "old-fashioned" books they call the Dictionary or
your digital device of choice and look up the word Ignorant
. The smartest man/woman on this planet will always have more things they
are ignorant of than they would likely be willing to admit.
I, for one, have had a gut-full of the, "If you were as smart as me you would understand
My boss when I worked in IT supposedly had a 170+ I.Q. but I had to bring a cooler for my lunch because he decided to "defrost" the freezer in our
lunch area with a hammer and a standard screwdriver...
"They" don't really CARE
about the environment. If they did they wouldn't be concentrating on a naturally occurring
gas and ignoring
Fukushima! Don't start telling me what you think I don't know, either. You don't need to be a nuclear (Please, people
pronouncing it with TWO "u"s) physicist to know that some of the elements being released by Fukushima have a short enough half-life that finding
appreciable amounts of them in the environment is evidence of activity that is most certainly NOT in control.
I've been around long enough not to be impressed with someone who trots out acronyms or technical terms they know the average person won't be familiar
with when trying to make their point. My wife got mad at me earlier this year because of an incident at a wedding reception we were invited to.
Someone that knew I used to do computer repair had asked me about her (well-used but not yet obsolete) computer. As I was explaining virtual memory
and the impact it can have on an older system with a small amount of available memory and an aging hard drive, a cocky little "College Joe" leaned in
between us and said, "He's talking about a 'pagefile'." To which, while placing one hand firmly on the shoulder of the arm that was holding his beer,
I asked, "I'm curious... What do you think you just accomplished by interrupting our conversation other than using a word that means absolutely
nothing to this nice lady? You may have shown that you know a word she doesn't but you've also shown that you are both rude and still immature."

The lack of the sense of crisis over Fukushima is in stark contrast to the gravity of the crisis. Fukushima is now undeniably a global security
issue. The unstoppable contamination of the Pacific Ocean and the atmosphere
with ionizing radiation from the destroyed Fukushima nuclear
reactors is seriously menacing the West Coast
of the United States. Japan should make utmost efforts to cope with the Fukushima crisis by
retreating from the Tokyo Olympic Games that disseminate the false impression that Fukushima is under control.
Japan is laboring under the consequences of the Accident never before experienced by humanity
, including the simultaneous destruction and
meltdown of three commercial nuclear reactors. Four and half years after the 3.11 disaster, it has been shown that a severe nuclear accident
cannot be brought under control by a single state
… It is questioned if Japan is in possession of the governability and the capacity needed
to cope with the impending crisis
. The melted cores of the reactors from Units 1, 2 and 3 remain inaccessible
… If the molten nuclear
fuel rods are exposed through cracks to the atmosphere due to a mega earthquake or the liquidization of soils on the site that could cause the
collapse and breach of Fukushima’s spent fuel pools, Japan’s landmass would become uninhabitable to a large extent… The whole of Japan is
threatened by the worsening situation emanating from the molten fuel rods, which continue to widely disseminate large amounts of dangerous
radionuclides into the sea and atmosphere. Limitless steam observed evokes the possibility of re-criticality
at the site. The undeniable
necessity for international verification of the suspected re-criticality
at the site should bring about the indispensable international
cooperation to cope effectively with the Accident. The ongoing radioactive contamination of the sea with no prospect for a solution is dishonoring
, causing it to be criticized for harming the global environment
. In spite of all this, attempts are shamefully being made to hide
World is menaced by the spreading contamination… The consequences of the radioactive contamination of the Pacific Ocean from Japan to the West Coast
of the United States are drawing increased attention. Some experts now estimate that the wave of radiation from Fukushima will be 10-times bigger
than all of the radiation from the entire world’s nuclear tests throughout history combined…
The advancement of the Tokyo Olympic Games comes at the expense of the funds needed to address the host of environmental disasters created by the
destroyed Fukushima nuclear reactors… The future of the Olympic Games is at stake. It is as a believer in the spirit of the Olympic Games and the
Olympic Movement that I am pleading for an honorable retreat, and this, in order for Japan to devote maximum efforts to controlling the Fukushima

One of the reasons JFK wanted the test ban treaty was because government studies knew in the 1960's that strontium-90 was already showing up in the
bodies of American children because of fallout.
It won't make any difference WHAT
the temperature is if there is nobody around to know!
