Greener??? With deforistation and developement??? Really???
Bad news is coming from other sources as well. A recent NASA study has shown that the ice cap is not only getting smaller, it’s getting thinner and younger. Sea ice has dramatically thinned between 2004 and 2008. Old ice (over 2 years old) takes longer to melt, and is also much harder to replace. As permanent ice decreases, we are looking at ice-free summers in the Arctic as early as 2030.
In 2003, 62 percent of the Arctic's total ice volume was stored in multi-year ice, with 38 percent stored in first-year seasonal ice. By 2008, 68 percent of the total ice volume was first-year ice, with 32 percent multi-year.

We are contributing to global warming.
The facts speak for themselves...
Are we looking for things to make us feel okay about littering and what we are doing to the environment??
There's a vast difference between pollution and the "global warming" debate, to fail to differentiate between the two illustrates your lack of knowledge.

Propaganda never stops amazing me.
When people want something so badly to happen they will stop at nothing to attain their agenda.
Religion, Politics, etc......they all eventually start to manipulate the masses.

You do know that deforestation, at least in the U.S., is a myth, right? Every tree they cut down they replant. They have massive tree farms that they maintain just like anything else that's done in the U.S.
Surely you've seen tiny tree farms in the form of Christmas Tree Farms right?
There's nothing different about this than what loggers do in the U.S. I imagine they do the same in Canada.
Really, the entire thing is a farce. There is no evidence to support for or against the existence of man made global warming. Is the planet getting warmer? Sure. Is it man made? Nobody can say. The planet has been warm before. To assume that it wouldn't ever go back that way is just like assuming anything else related to the matter.
What we do know, though, is that people like Al Gore profit tremendously from this movement through green credit actions. And we also know that he uses more than 20 times as much electricity as the national average. And we also know that he pays carbon credits to offset this. And we also know that he owns the carbon credit company that he pays through.
We also know about England's £38m carbon credit fraud.
From that, we can draw conclusions about the situation.

... Global Warming is the mania of our times. While there is good scientific evidence that atmospheric carbon dioxide is increasing from the burning of fossil fuels, and that carbon dioxide does indeed absorb infa-red heat radiation of certain frequencies, it is purely speculation that this will cause a climate catastrophe.
