And lastly, ANY of you that HONESTLY take the little "Ats Legend" title of mine seriously MIGHT want to seek a bit of help. It's meant in jest people!!!!
Do you guys honestly think I'm sitting here behind this computer screen and patting myself on the back at my achieving "legend" status here at ATS? Perhaps you think I run around with a big red "LEGEND" cape on?

Let me get all philosphical for a minute.
What if its the earths way of de-populating itself...... To protect itself. Should we interfere with it if its a natural defense mechanism of our planet?

Ummm... and just exactly how is this whole global warming conspiracy supposed to work? What does anyone have to gain from the reduction in usage of fossil fuels and greenhouse gas/pollution emissions? It's obviously not going to benefit the oil companies. It's obviously not going to benefit the people who want us to consume, consume, consume. So seriously, how is this supposed to benefit anyone but the whole of humanity?

There are several sources you can find online to contradict these statements. Even so, for those who claim there's no way to tell if man's involvement in global warming is certain, it's funny they instead can point to the sun with absolute certainty.
Yes he can, the whole solar sistem is warming up, mars also is recording temperature rise,also ultra violets are more dangerous than ever before, when I was a kid there was no danger to UV , now when I go to the beach I aways worry about it.
The truth is that it is the sun, this with green gass efect is just a bunch of crap, If I recall corectly NASA and others atempted to warm up a large area ermeticly closed from the outside with this kind of effect for the hope of implementing this on other places of the solar sistem where it's frosen cold.., guess what ..it failed, the place did not warm up at all.
... There is growing probability that we are moving into a rapid temperature instability period similar to the one that took place 10,000 years ago
~also~... The material composition of the gas-plasma envelope is also being transformed...
This is not true. If anybody wishes to read about what is happening in the solar system from a detailed analysis by astronomers and the implications for the earth then they can do so OR they can believe the crap that is regurgitated like that above.
Stay ignorant or read original published analyses, your choice!

That being said, I think a larger issue related to "Global Warming" is that it has co-opted natural resources (water, clean air, etc) as "commodities" to be traded or bought - i.e.: bottled water, carbon points. What crap. Worse yet, how will this be managed by potentially Fascist regimes in a world where corporations and governments are merging at break-neck speed? Hell, even George Bush is on board with the concept of "Global Warming". Why? Because there is big money in it.
All this will do is force middle and low income citizens of this planet to fork over more of their hard-earned money to corporations who will sell us resources that should be a birth right for every human being on Earth.
If you people to not see how this is Capitalism in its most vampire-ish form, well I just don't know how to convince you.
