    Just thinking about this and thought I'd ask the question.
    Here is ireland we are having a very wet summer, bad floods last month. The year before we had about 7weeks of rain everyday.
    They should call it gobal dampness.

    Ireland? My family's originally from Newbridge, I was born there but we came to California when I was 3. Here in California we're definitely experiencing Global Warming, its hot and sticky and gross. I would love to be there in thre rain in Ireland!

    I'd have to say I agree. Its like the ice age that was coming a few years ago, YK2 was another one. There always seems to be some global disaster waiting around the corner for us. I do believe that its just another way of keeping us in fear and spending on crap we don't need.

    I work in Portland Oregon but live in Vancouver Washington which is about 20 min. drive from Portland. What I have noticed a lot over the last couple of years is how humid its gotten now. It's gotten a lot warmer during the summer and the winter seems to last a lot longer than it used to out here. It's weird because you would really notice that it was summer out here but now it could be the middle of July or August and it will be raining and in the 50's then the next day it will be up in the 90's again. More weather variances than it used to be. Even globally doesn't everyone notice how much more Hurricanes there are now. Even out here we've had reports of tornardos like twice this year. Nothing too crazy but enough for people to notice.

    Well I wouldn't say it's a total farce, it IS present... but it's part of how the planet works and not the fault of people at all. This is just the first 'warming' we've seen since records were saved. It won't kill people off anymore than natural disasters do every year anyway.

    We can't predict any large scale climate models - hell, we can't even get accurate weather forecasts 120 hours out, let alone 10+ years. But this doesn't mean we can't pollute all willy-nilly.

    No, but there's a difference between pollution and CO2 emissions. There's thousands times more CO2 being dumped into the atmosphere from normal geothermal and volcano activities than what humans cause, so it's a pretty big stretch to claim that the human CO2 emissions are causing global warming. Our CO2 is just a speck on what normally happens on our planet so that sure as hell isn't it. However it never hurts to clean up our act where we can.

    I do agree we need to make changes to the amount of resources we use from the planet, it makes sense. Around 2000 years ago the Romans where growing grapes in England for wine.
    They recently took core samples from Greenland and found that the weather has changed very quickly and very often. This is in complete constrast to the slow movements we have been told before. There is still so little we know we know about our planet so most of what the scientist are saying are at best guesses. These guesses are being jumped on as usual by others to make money. Take the Prius. If you look at the total impact of this car, which includes manufacturing, it is no better than any other.
    At the end of the day its all about money.
