i dont fully beleve that though,
i have always found it strange that alot of heroin is able to escape afghanistan with all the troops the allied forces have there,
we may not legally tax for the drugs, but its quite well documented that the moving of drugs has been aided by western governments where they are making money (an almost illegal tax) to allow it to find its way into various contries.
black ops money etc.
if there was a real war on drugs it would be alot harder to get it into a country.
take uk for example, millions of pounds worth of heroin or coc aine goes through the country in a year, its an island, its not like its driven there, in theory you could completely prevent getting there if you made enough effort.
Pluto is undergoing global warming, as evidenced by a three-fold increase in the planet's atmospheric pressure during the past 14 years...
Pluto, the coldest and most distant planet in the solar system, is getting a dose of global warming. In 1989 it reached its closest point to the sun, causing bits of its icy surface to evaporate into a slight atmosphere. Pluto’s nitrogen-rich atmosphere—although still frigid with temperatures between -274°F to -391°F, depending on the altitude—is distinctly warmer than it was when last observed in 1988.
Simultaneous warming on Earth and Mars suggests that our planet's recent climate changes have a natural—and not a human-induced—cause, according to one scientist's controversial theory.
His views are completely at odds with the mainstream scientific opinion," said Colin Wilson, a planetary physicist at England's Oxford University. ...
“Global warming on Neptune's moon Triton as well as Jupiter and Pluto, and now Mars has some [scientists] scratching their heads over what could possibly be in common with the warming of all these planets. ...
Earth is heating up lately, but so are Mars, Pluto and other worlds in our solar system, leading some scientists to speculate that a change in the sun’s activity is the common thread linking all these baking events.
Since the late 1970s, the amount of solar radiation the sun emits, during times of quiet sunspot activity, has increased by nearly .05 percent per decade, according to a NASA funded study. This trend is important because, if sustained over many decades, it could cause significant climate change...
Photographs from Nasa's orbiting spacecraft Mars Global Surveyor show recently formed craters and gullies. The agency's scientists also say that deposits of frozen carbon dioxide near the planet's south pole have shrunk for three summers in a row. They say this is evidence to suggest climate change is in progress.
Timothy Ball, one of the first Canadian doctors in climatology, recently wrote an article addressing the issue of why no one seems to be listening to scientists who claim that global warming is NOT man-made. He starts by writing, “Believe it or not, Global Warming is not due to human contribution of Carbon Dioxide (CO2). This in fact is the greatest deception in the history of science”. He continues, “We are wasting time, energy and trillions of dollars while creating unnecessary fear and consternation over an issue with no scientific justification.” Then he mentions how Environment Canada is spending billions upon billions of dollars on “propaganda” which defends an “indefensible scientific position while at the same time closing weather stations and failing to meet legislated pollution targets.”
Global warming on Venus has caused the surface temperature to rise to nearly 9000 F, enough to melt lead.

Global warming is a lie to further profit the needs of Energy/Oil companies.

All of you morons who are saying that "this is a tool of the left" are out of your mind.
This transcends political ideology.
I'm not on the left, the right, or in the center. I'm an independent thinker, dammit.

They mostly labelled it global warming until climate Gate than they changed their mind when people realised they couldn't buy their bull crap anymore. Climate Gate look it up Also take a look at my links above.
The Truth hurts doesn't it; it insults your intelligence and you can't stand to accept it. The Truth will set you free my friend.

The question for al Gore is are you smarter than a 5th grader because that's the age when you learn plants take in carbon dioxide and breath out oxygen.

Why the hell are people in this thread turning this into a Right vs Left thing?
Because that's easier than admitting they might be wrong.
Because the media is brainwashing people into thinking it's a right vs left thing. They tell the right that the left wants to stop you from breathing out CO2 or tax you for breathing. Then they tell the left that the right wants to destroy the environment. then both sides say that the other side is lying.
