ScienceDaily (May 20, 2009) — The most comprehensive modeling yet carried out on the likelihood of how much hotter the Earth's climate will get in this century shows that without rapid and massive action, the problem will be about twice as severe as previously estimated six years ago - and could be even worse than that.

They contribute more CO2 and methane then we do.
Some business leaders are cozying up with politicians and scientists to demand swift, drastic action on global warming. This is a new twist on a very old practice: companies using public policy to line their own pockets.
There would be an outcry if big oil organized a climate change conference and invited only climate-change deniers.
The partnership among self-interested businesses, grandstanding politicians and alarmist campaigners is an unholy alliance. The climate-industrial complex does not promote discussion in a way that will be best for everybody. Those who stand to make a profit are among the loudest calling for politicians to act. Spending a fortune on global carbon regulations will benefit a few, but dearly cost everybody else.

I am just flabergasted at the idea that wanting to preserve a clean planet to pass on to the next generation is sneered at by anyone. What is wrong with you people?

Whether its global warming or the earths natural cycle or a combo of both, we should consider our impact on the generations to come. And do what we can to help our mother earth.

I could use a few more months of prime motorcycle weather.
What about the fact that we our in a low sun spot cycle? I believe that we has human have damaged the Earth, but unless we develop Free energy that does not pollute nothing we do will matter as long as factories and other nations don’t help.

While I do not discount the possiblity that there are "schemes" to be perpetrated on the back of global climate change the science seems pretty clear that we are at least speeding up the process of altering the climate through the unchecked burning of fossil fuels. At this point I think most in the scientific community look at the climate change doubters with about as much respect as most people look at holocaust deniers.
