Global Warming.

I know this is an old nut on these boards but it does look that something is changing, with all the news about floodings, fires etc. in various countries. Are these normal and usually not reported before, or are our activities actually making things worse?
Makes you wonder?

Don't believe anything you've read, according to my electricity monitor Global Warming is all my fault.

It is reported that Mr Bush has now been converted to believing it is happening I think.

So it's you - I owe my wife an apology, she's been getting the blame for constantly leaving lights on all over the place, and turning the heating on whenever the temperature falls below 70 degrees.

This planet has been a lot warmer and colder without human influences. If the planet warms up maybe we wont survive but the planet will. In the end something must reduce the amount of humans because the planets recourses have limits to produce the amounts we will need. I recon maybe another 1000 years max. (My guess not a educated one)

You're right.

I have always said that if Greenpeace really want to save the planet they'd be campaigning for the extermination of the human race!

The planet's resources would last much longer than that - there's enough coal under Britain alone to keep us going for 600 years.

I suspect Noldi was referring to food resources to feed the ever increasing population

Maybe some wise, benevolent aliens will visit Earth and help us (or eat us).

  Noldi 10:42 05 Sep 2010

My money would be on eaten. I think the human race is well beyond help.

With the amount of toxins we have consumed over the past years we would be considered not fit for eating.
