What a load of crap. The two authors of that "Pentagon Report" have stated that it is a "worst case scenario, and highly unlikely."" The
authors go on to say that people are taking the report out of context, and should relax. These kinds of studies are done all the time, thinking about
meteor strikes, comet strikes, volcanic eruptions, and "swift, catastrophic climate change", which was the subject of the Pentagon Report,
NOT global warming.
That's the media lying, read the actual source, not the BS media. These authors are brilliant men, who have authored a great book on converting to
hydrogen fuels. They head a San Francisco think tank.
Average temperatures have increased by one degree in the last 100 years. Left wing loonies are pushing this crud down our throats, using meaningless
short time frames and it's all bull#.
The Kyoto treaty, if implemented (won't be), would decrease average temps by .02 degree by 2050. That's according to the proponets. Big whoop.
Doing that would cost the US about $250 billion a year. All that while the Third World increases world-wide greenhouse gas emissions anyway, since
they get to ignore the emission rules.
The more than 2 billion people in India and China are going to overwhelm any emission decrease the US produces.
This world goes through Ice Ages and Warm Periods all by itself, and always has, with no help from man. In the "Medieval Warm Period," 800-1300AD
(look it up) grapes and olives were grown in England, which was tropical then compared to now. That's why Greeen land was named Greenland, it was
green back then. It is ice now. 13,000 years ago we were in an Ice Age, now we are in a warm period, and we will have another Ice Age, environmental
We can't predict the weather accurately 10 days out, in a specific location, but we can predict man's effect on global warming? What a joke. One
large volcanic eruption will change the entire picture, and that could happen any day.
When Saddam burned the Kuwaiti oil fields in '91, he put out more pollution than the entire US has emitted in over 100 years.
Fill 'er up and drive...and ignore the chicken littles who said we would run out of oil by 1985. Remember that piece of BS?
