"Professor Ian Plimer of Adelaide University and Professor Jon Harrison of the University of Arizona accept that oxygen levels in the atmosphere in prehistoric times averaged 35 percent compared to only 21 percent today. The levels are even lower in densely populated, polluted city centers and industrial complexes, perhaps only 15 percent or lower.
Much of this recent, accelerated change is down to human activity, notably the industrial revolution and the burning of fossil fuels. Which means we are slowing down one process, oxygen generation, and speeding up another, carbon dioxide production."

Pretty spot on as far as I can see.
I would like to add tho that if one finds older maps of the world's forests, one will see that it is mostly the tropical jungles/forests that are dwindling at an alarming rate. Those maps show Africa's sub-Saharan forest roughly 1/2 of what they were in 1900 & South America's about 2/3rds of 1900's. Indonesia, Madagascar & Sumatra are shrinking alarming too.
On the other hand, U.S. forest have grown from the colonial days. We are blessed with a fine forest management system & highly productive farms.
BUT, I have witnessed another form of pollution of our seas. I had opportunity to cruise from Evert WA to San Diego on a warship that my son was stationed on. His ship was about to decommissioned so it was being stripped of 'waste' on the cruise south. I witnessed his ship cruising near the continental shelf & simply tossing the predetermined 'waste' over the side!! Some of the items were still in sealed packages against the salt air. I saw cabinets, machine parts & even dollies pitched into the sea.
Like these items couldn't be transferred to another vessel, shore facilities or even recycled as would seem fitting. I also learned that this was a common practice when decommissioning a vessel. The continental shelf must be seriously littered, if not now, just give it time.
His ship eventually was used for anti-ship missile target practice ( the largest ship used for such) & it is now an artificial reef off of Hawaii. The 2nd largest ship used for a reef.
The only excuse, if it is one, is that the Navy did have the ship up for sale to an ally but had no takers for such a ship.

So sorry. You guys were little fetch boys for the oil industry a decade before Al Gore made a peep on the subject. Oddly enough from the pews of your churches. Hey, wanna see a video of oil billionaire sponsored Sarah Palin telling the congregation of her church that a pipeline is "God's will"?
Also, the oil industry makes more in one day than all the environmentalists and climate scientists have made collectively in a decade.
You need to put on your clown suit and fight another brave battle like when the right wing conservatives mindlessly fought against the evils of higher efficiency light bulbs. To the point that many has been, "south will rise again" losers like yourself were stocking up on incandescent light bulbs.
Sure...even though oil billionaires were actively spending millions in anti-climate change propaganda at the exact time you guys formed your anti-climate change opinions, I'm sure you came up with your notions on advanced global weather patterns all on your own. Seeing how, other than the oil funded propaganda sites you often love linking to as "facts", 97% of the scientific community disagrees with your views on climate change, your own personal studies must be the only explanation. Ahhhh ha ha ha ha!
Keep telling yourself that, Rubber Ducky. Now if only the vast majority of educated, hard working, tax paying voters would have been stupid enough to buy into that, your agenda wouldn't be just a sour grape, fading light from a long dead star.
The dead star is going to be the US in the future if we don't leash these global warming kooks that are ruining this country.

Reminds me of what happened earlier this week. Once again, my engine lights came on in the truck again, and once again, Penski had to put it on a computer for a half-hour and clear the codes. And yes, once again, it was some sort of pollution gadget that signaled the warning lights. The problem is that if you don't clear the codes, it will eventually shut down the engine even though nothing is really wrong.

But hell, it's worth it, isn't it? Just smell how much cleaner the air is now that we have all this computerized green crap on our trucks that cause them to break down every week. SNIFFFF! And then my employer has to pay me for another hour and a half for work that didn't need to be done, the leasing company has to pay their technician another half hour for no reason, and they have to keep those computers up and running with new software and repairs all the time.

In the meantime, the air in China is so bad that citizens have to walk around with masks on. I guess that's one of the reasons they took all our manufacturing away from the US: they don't put hundreds of billions of dollars in failed green investments.

Speaking of China, they hate unions just as much as you guys. Good old Communist China and you. Hand and hand. So your trucks break down every week, huh? Sounds like another one of your "true" stories. Keep reading those emailed Tea Bagger propaganda newsletters. It's not like you guys being wrong on every single claim you have made has made you a joke to the majority of Americans or anything. It's not like every fake scandal you gleefully gulped down has tarnished the validity of everything you guys say or do. Strange how all the racists in our country magically vanished, while at the same time, a whole lot of people suddenly caring about things like "liberty" or the Constitution magically appeared. Take the Tea Party and their brave stand against taxes. Nothing racist, just hate those high taxes. I mean except for the fact that taxes are the lowest they have been in 50 years. Or how about that Obama joker wasting tax payers money with his vacations. Never mind the fact that the same people whistled Dixie and waved their little flags while Bush took way more vacation time. You know, like you did when Bush sent our troops off to needlessly die in Iraq or when GW was raping our Constitution. You just sat and smiled your stupid, voted for Bush twice grins. Just admit it, you stammering cave men jackasses. It's because he's black. Period.

You guys can lie to yourselves all day. It's what you do. Just don't think for a second that we are buying it.

China may hate unions, but they love government control over the people very similar to the Communists in the Democrat party. The US Communist party didn't support republican candidates, they supported DumBama both his elections.

Another thing Communists like to do is remove religion from society. Sound familiar? This is because Communists don't want people looking towards a higher power than government. They want to brainwash people that government is the highest power.

Now if you want to dispute my "true stories" then offer some proof. Find me one diesel mechanic that would disagree with me that over 80% of truck problems today are caused from these pollution gadgets. Find me one truck salesman that can testify that the reason for these expensive truck prices have nothing to do with all this pollution green crap; just one.

You chime in criticizing me on how I'm not a global warming expert, yet in the next post, claiming you are a diesel/ truck expert and that I'm making things up. You know more than I do about the business I'm in. After all, I've only been in trucking for 20 years. How could I compare that experience with your knowledge????

Canton, Here you go again, twisting, folding & mutilating the msg/truth. "Strange how all of the racists have magically disappeared" is because the only racists has always been the black voters & Obama & they have NOT disappeared. Proof? Even YOU say that Obama is Black. He is also equally White genetically. Who's the racist? Remember Obama talking PROUDLY about a Blacks for Obama caucus? Of course not because you have a blinders on selective memory. The racists that YOU & your kind talk about never existed.
Bush wasting tax payers money on vacations?!?! I will wager that none of his vacations cost a 100 million dollars like Obama's. I'll also wager that Obama played more golf in 4 yrs than Bush did in 8 yrs.
Then there's the reality that Obama is the greatest raper of the constitution since Franklin Delano. That list is so long that I don't have time to enumerate. Then you mention cavemen...IF you are the brightest person in your family, YOU are a firefly in a cave, How sad.
You still haven't answered my previous question about what your problem is with truckers, that I do NOT need to post a link to. That is how you operate, change the subject, ignore, obfuscate the thought, twist the question or answer. In any possible way to, avoid logic & truth. You're pretty good at it too.

If I died tomorrow, I would have died giving a rat's ass about future generations. Not a product of the politics of the day. A hard working man who was willing to pay his fair share to make sure that the American youth of tomorrow had a fair shot at a soon to be global effort. If you died tomorrow, you would have died a corporate lacky. You looked your kids in the eye and told them Jesus doesn't have a future for you. A clown who cowardly scuffled back and forth between this scandal and that propaganda driven notion. Just a greed and fear driven throwback with a pocket full of your parent's money. Fuck you inbred hooptie confederates. Screw you voted for Bush twice, "Patriot" whores of the oil industry. You are a slobbering, statistically lower IQ, statistically misinformed, statistically pedophile, fringe group of liars. You suck off corporations while crying about government. You weren't crying about nothing while Halliburton outsourced our American soldiers. Fuck you stumphumping morons. Get down in your graves, traitors. You had your big day in the sun and America is still digging itself out of your ignorance.

Listen up, you adult diaper stuck to the wheel of a Hoveround. If it wasn't for pissy as$ed Mayberry f%cks like yourself, this country would be thriving. It's greedy, mommy and daddy's money baby boomers who started the whole "too special to give up the throne" ideals that created our current situation. Your old money, and arrogance robbed generations from their right to guide this nation. Rightwing, conservative, God loving white upper middle class voters are the most numerous and most wealthy and influential force in this country. That is exactly who is to balme for the course of this nation. As much as you hasbeens love to blame the poor and the powerless guy in the passenger seat for all this country's woes, I blame the rightwing Christian Conservative rich boy with his hands on the steering wheel when the car crashes into the wall. We all remember you "Patriots" when it all fell down.

Let's see now, DumBama spent just as much of our money in three years than Bush did in eight. The housing bubble that led to the housing crash was designed to give lower income and minorities home loans they couldn't afford. The Communists spent nearly a trillion dollars for a supposed stimulus with failed results. And another couple of trillion in the future for socialist healthcare, and when the country falls down, remember the Christian patriots.

I'll remember it a different way thank you. I'll remember who got us to the point where half of our population is now living off of the working. I'll remember the expansion in unemployment and food stamps. I'll remember the increase in those getting SS disability. I'll remember the 17 trillion in debt and DumBama's desire to spend even much more. I'll remember all those full-time workers getting their hours cut to 29 per week so their employer could escape Commie Care. I'll remember the businesses that had to shut down and move overseas for the same reason.

White the rest of the world will look at reality, you will blame Jesus and the Koch brothers. Good luck with that one.

YES!

They should take any job AVAILIABLE in order to qualify for compensation from the govt.
Most people who don't have two dimes to rub together, don't want to work at minimum wage jobs because its beneath them.??????? Well, too fricking bad. So they would rather see their family starve than swallow their pride and work at what's AVAILIABLE.

Are you suggesting that children, the elderly, and the disabled should starve if they don't work?

"Three-quarters of entitlement benefits written into law in the United States go toward the elderly or disabled. That's according to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities. And a big chunk of the rest goes to working households. Only about 9 percent of all entitlement benefits go toward non-elderly, non-disabled households without jobs..."
