When Bill Clinton took office in 1993, global warming was a slow-moving environmental problem that was easy to ignore.

That sounds like conspiracy theory thinking...you know like the conspiracy that global warming is a charade created by governments to maximize their control and increase the revenues to government coffers.

So how close to the brink will science take us before they say their crisis is as inevitable as they like to say asteroid hits are?
If you could just use your brain to decipher plain and simple logic rather than trying to discredit techno babble with more techno babble which is just diverting from the main point.

The main points are that the planet is still the same size it always was yet the ppl living on it have been growing and using its resources at a unprecedented rate. So much so that those same resources cannot be regenerated within a yearly cycle so its an ongoing negative impact. Just the same way as the financial collapse where growth was faked with debt. In other words company profits made off bad loans that would eventually be called on. We are doing exactly the same thing to the planet only this time there is NO BAILOUT. We land clear before new forests can regenerate, we dig out of the ground fossil fuels before there is a slightest chance of regeneration, we waste at an alarming rate, and we still demand clean water and clean air. So while this had no significant impact during the caveman times, with billions more living on the same planet now it DOES make a difference.
What is worse that even with that simple logic staring you in the face like a deer caught in the headlights you still refuse to acknowledge that it exists. It's too damn late when struggling farmers scratching to make a living as it is have their crops ruined year after year with extreme weather. Then tell us its all part of a natural cycle, its a freaking cycle we made and contributed too. Why can't you guys get that in your head!

Excellent.

Thanks for telling it like it is. That poster mindlessly posts the same lies year after year. You can see those posts even six or seven years ago in these threads.

I would like to see how that would work. I mean, do you think that the government would make you dig a basement at the point of a gun?

You guys have paranoid fantasies like I have fantasies of naked little Asian women.

I...LIVE...ON...THE...SIDE...O F...A...HILL.

I like wet. It's better than Phoenix dry. I'm not gonna run out of water.

I have clear, clean air, on which the scents of honeysuckle and wisteria are now wafting. I have bountiful sunshine and nourishing rain. My bed has lain under the full moon shining into my bedroom these past few nights, with only the crickets and tree frogs to disturb the silence. When the storms come, I watch the lightening shows and the rain coming off the drip line of my eve through huge picture windows.

A pair of red tailed hawks have taken up residence in the neighborhood, I've seen the magnificent male perched on that big dead oak and heard the calls of his mate back in the forest.

Where do you live, brain? In some crowded and noisy tenement in some polluted city?

Yes, I've had to remind him to update his 26 years...27 years....28 years.... He forgets; obviously doesn't keep track but only concentrates on vomiting the same tired "message".

Where do you live, brain?
First,'lyin' brian' has no brain....... off-world relative (or genetic spawn) of dirtling, alias 'earthling has no brain', ya know.

We got what you got..... even the honeysuckle.
Not two redtails, tho.......two bald eagles. We had ospreys & redtails. But they nest far away, now that the eagles are here. Got views of 6000 foot mountains...... with 2500 foot, very steep cliffs in one of the newest wilderness areas....... the Wild Sky & one of the most entrancing wilderness areas...... the Alpine Lakes Wilderness.

Hey, try Google Earth. You can pilot yourself along the cliffs of Mt. Index & Mt. Baring. Fly between the buttresses of the north wall of Mt. Index. Meander through the ruggedness of Merchant Peak, Gunn Peak & Jump Off ridge. Of course, lots of other peaks, in the most wondrous Alpine Wilderness Area. Oh, yeah, the Monte Cristo Peaks are spectacular too.

For those of you who still deny man's interference with the environment has no effect. Then watch this doco on PBS, the American dust bowl where greed and capitalism over reached. Then reflect on those same environmental questions you want to deny exists and ask are really being truthful with yourself!

No. But cities, counties, etc. can and do enact building codes. I once lived in a town in the west that required that every new house built have a storm shelter. If you didn't build it, you did not get a building permit.

You will never sell the idea of "Global Warming" in Coal country.

This from the Pineville, KY, Topix forum thread called "Our coal miners need JOBS!!!":

"Coal was meant to be mined ! Let them mine it ! Other countries are mining coal .if this was a worldwide campaign to stop coal then why just us ? The "green wind blowers" are making money from Obama then just drifting from town to town. Obama is going to weaken the American dollar so much it will take every dime a man has to buy bread. That is what is coming to . There isn't going to be a workforce to keep up this country much longer . Obama is will take our weapons , our energy , our economy then leave this country. I think he has set us up for the greatest fall in American History ! If you think Hillary Clinton is different -she is not ! Clinton sold out and her husband caused our banks to fall because of deregulation ! She said one that Obama had no experience she was right then she sold out . She seems brainwashed and Clinton he never told the truth did he ? Clinton is "the great embellisher" !"

"bowel movement-re-pubic-lick-un " is so rabid, it licks its bowel movement. "bowel movement-re-pubic-lick-un " says, coal was 'MEANT TO BE MINED BY BLACK LUNG INFECTED COAL MINORS' AND the coal pollution spread to water sources, water tables, pristine mountain valleys, & tall smokestacks are supposed to spread the happy pollution to other states. Mine coal, send it to china(leaving a trail of coal dust & derailed coal cars throughout many other pristine mountain, valley, lake & sea environments) & then let the communist chinese(ALWAYS SMALL LETTERS) send coal-burning pollution into the Pacific Ocean & across America, where 10% of american pollution comes from communist china(ALWAYS SMALL LETTERS).

"bowel movement-re-pubic-lick-un " needs to remain on the pot to get rid of its pollutions, but that'll take a lifetime.
