WE'RE DOOMED!


NEW YORK - Climate scientists armed with new data from deep in the ocean and far into space have found that Earth is absorbing much more heat than it is giving off, a conclusion they say validates projections of global warming.

Lead scientist James Hansen, a prominent NASA climatologist, described the findings on the planet's out-of-balance energy exchange as a "smoking gun" that should dispel doubts about forecasts of climate change. A European climate expert called it a valuable contribution to climate research.

Hansen's team, reporting Thursday in the journal Science, said they also determined that global temperatures will rise 1 degree Fahrenheit this century even if greenhouse gases are capped tomorrow.

If carbon dioxide and other heat-trapping emissions instead continue to grow, as expected, things could spin "out of our control," especially as ocean levels rise from melting Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets, the researchers said. International experts predict a 10-degree leap in Fahrenheit readings in such a worst-case scenario.


Oh no! We could be heading towards the end of the world here folks. REPENT REPENT!



"There can no longer be genuine doubt that human-made gases are the dominant cause of observed warming," said Hansen, director of NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies at Columbia University's Earth Institute. "This energy imbalance is the `smoking gun' that we have been looking for."


EVERY1 GO NOW AND BUY A HYBRID SO WE CAN SLOW THIS DOWN AT LEAST. WHEN WILL WE LEARN? WE'RE DOOOMED, DOOOOOOOOOOMED, *gasps for air*, DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMED!

Another doomsayer....

Yeah Croat56, you should have included this in your "doomed" bit:


DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMED!



Would appear to me that NASA is really hurting for research grants and grants in general, eh?

Hmm, isn't this time a peak sunspot period.
Maybe the sun will get hotter and release even more energy?
Come to think of it, thats actually what is happening.
Interesting that the increased solar activity correlates near precisely with current global temperature changes, no?

first off I posted this info already .Secondly Where in there does it say this is the end of the world? I assure you even given a TOTAL nukler war the world will still be here and some animals and mabby even people will survive it.
Nuk the planet then wate 50,000 years and see what it looks like.
by then you will have trouble finding the citys as they are covered by forest .
