There is no doubt that we are screwing our world. The people who will tell us that global warming is in fact not happening are the
"scientists" who work for Exxon Mobil.
y published a survey claiming that over a thousand scientists had accepted global warming as not true. Characters from M*A*S*H were found in this list.. Don't let them fool you...We must do something otherwise future generations will be living in #ing waterworld!

Nobody is saying that they are the ONLY source of CO2 emissions, but because we produce so much of it it's causing a problem.

I look at the profound change we are expieriencing here in Alaska, last winter we did'nt even have any snow until Feb., and that is unreal for S .central Alaska. The warming climate has also caused devastation in our forests, as it has allowed the Spruce Bark Beetle to go on a ravenous rampage, destoying thousands of acres
Global warming is a real situation in my opinion.

Well, being a native to the state containing the national forest empacted by the pine beetle, I ca tell you that it had nothing to do with global warming and everything to do with uneducated environmentalist halting clearing of downed trees caused by an ice strom the previous winter. I have been deeply envolved with this problem and seen the results of many other studies as well. The numerous amount of downed pines provided perfect nesting and forage for the beetle whos population skyrocketed. The Forestry department recommended removal of the debris and also had stands of older Poplars which become frail if allowed to grow too long. Their solution was supervised harvesting of that timber by private industry in exchange for reomval of the downed pines as well. It was a decision made out of training and education in forestry management that was over-ruled by emotional ignorance. I often wondered how the infestation would be explained by the extremists and now I know. Global Warming.
Has anyone bothered to look at the scientific side of climatology or have we just hitched our horse to an ominous sounding scare tactic that we'll defend into the far reaches of stupidy?
