Ok, guilty as charged, it was a snarky comment, but meant in humor.

Thank of Grand Turino, Clint in the barbershop.

The rest of the post is valid, the amount being released in the Arctic is several times higher than the rest of the world.

If an alien species wants to take over our planet, fooling greedy oil barons into destroying our climate would be a pretty good plan.
It sounds like the ultimate scifi movie plot.


How about just walking in with no resistance 300 plus years ago....hehe no need to do crap to the planet.

It's been done....in reverse...sorta.

The Voltar Confederacy wishes to conquer the planet Earth, which they regard as an important potential base on the main route of their planned invasion of the galactic centre. The conquest of Earth is scheduled for over 100 years in the future, but the Grand Council of Voltar becomes convinced that it must send a mission to prevent Earth from destroying itself through pollution and possibly war, so as not to disrupt the future timetable of conquest.

2 theories,

I think we will find the ice zone will have just shifted and that it never really disappears.

or that perhaps within this moment in Earth's vast history it is simply not needed in it's biosphere to sustain itself?

Millions of years ago, when the planet was last this warm, forests grew in the Arctic zones.

That's how all this vegetation grew there. The info is in one of the links I provided.

Opening scene

EXT ARCTIC SHORE NIGHT

Old coot walks out of his cabin in the woods.

He stares out at the ice free arctic shoreline.

He raises a cigarette to his ancient lips, and then a lighter.

INSERT

Lighter in wrinkled old hand. The thumb flicks the igniting wheel.

INSERT

Satellite image as a huge fire rapidly expands across a large section of Siberia.

Yeah, but this is a whole new twist.

But what should the aliens look like?

How about old hippies?

End scene.... a cigarette in the Arctic tundra.... $12.63... a fireball the size of a solar flare...priceless...

Are you calling Phage an alien?

Yeah, the public is in massive denial, while the oil companies are already setting up oil drilling as the Arctic ice retreats. It is a strange disconnect from reality.

It could be good news for those who see this coming, but how to prepare?

edit on 22-9-2012 by poet1b because: Typo

Well the people are in denial, but governments are making carbon laws to protest the environment (Australia's carbon tax) yet governments allow new coal powered stations, new oil rigs etc... to be built in eco sensitive areas,
more to it that just global warming people, more like a global agenda, problem, reaction, solution

Hmm, as the ultimate skeptic, with an alien species working to get humanity to wipe themselves out, by creating global warming, it would be a role an alien might play.

It's possible.

When the earth was warmer everything was much nicer than now.

It's not our fault, its the sun heating up the entire solar system.
I cant wait for the floods, hope it happens soon, plenty of space on this earth but too many moronic humans, wash em away I say.

I think it will take nothing less than a global disaster of phenomenal proportions to stop the ICs from being hell bent on doing anything and everything for the pursuit of profit, irregardless of the consequences to anyone or anything.

Corporations are a virus that will feed until the host body dies.

The Earth is getting a fevor to kill off invading virus.

It can't possibly last long because with this degree of yearly melt it wont be but the same handful of years before the NA current shuts down from fresh water shutting the conveyor and creates an ice age.

There is little we can do about it, it's obvious that this is the Sun as causation not just man made phenomena this is cyclical and inevitable anyway.


I learned this years ago in an undergraduate geology class. The professor was adamant that (at least at that time) the general consensus was that we were only a blip in the middle of an ice age.

The whole sun heating up the solar system claim was debunked long ago.

That is not happening.

There's a very easy solution to global warming caused by greenhouse gases: iron. The waters surrounding Antarctica are very deficient in iron. As a result, plankton can't thrive there and don't absorb atmospheric carbon. By seeding the Southern Ocean with iron compounds, we can induce plankton growth and sink enormous amounts of carbon (to the order of a 13,000:1 ratio of carbon atoms absorbed to iron atoms seeded) to the seabed.

Humanity will survive. In what condition is the question, but if all hell breaks loose , there will be pockets of survivors.

Full speed ahead and damn the ramifications!

According to the article, it's not all that simple, and it would only cut carbon in the ocean, and it does not mention how much iron would be needed to seed the oceans.

At best it would have a minimal effect on global warming.
