Hadn't thought about that. What made that worse though were the unscrupulous businessmen in the US who promised the Europeans gold to come to here only to deliver poor wages and awful working conditions. It is detailed in "The Jungle" by Upton Sinclair.

http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Jungle

The Chicago stockyards for meat parking were a horrible and dangerous place for the immigrants to work and the wages were quite paltry. People died and were permanently injured. The immigrants came with hope because of lies.

I hope you can find the book. Maybe Amazon. It's not a long read but was required in school. Gives you a flavor of Chicago in the 1800s and early 1900s. The smell of the stockyards permeated the air well into the 1970s.

OH, a couple of Nuclear bombs can pretty much make the surrounding 100 km uninhabitable for a few decades ....

You will note from the second article that all scientists involved have been exonerated in subsequent enquiries into their scientific methodology. But that didn't make headline news - you had to be in the UK and follow the story to know that there was no manipulation of data as claimed. So to claim it invalidated anything is not correct.
No one has forced a change in name - the climate scientists themselves did this to reflect more accurately the nature of what is happening as "global warming" gave non-scientists a misguided impression - as you show with the second part of your post.
A few degrees warmer would be a calamity for the UK. Are you aware how low-laying much of our coastline is? The melting of the ice caps/glaciers and the subsequent rise in sea levels has the potential to innundate hundreds of square miles. And the red herring is methane from cows, not sheep - irrelevant to the issue as they've always been around.
Even the US Environmental Agency admits warming has accelerated:
http://www.epa.gov/climatechange/science/indi...
Useful little research tool the internet proves to be.
I agree ... 2 degrees warmer in fact is all it takes for that flooding calamity to occur, if that change was worldwide....

There are glaciers all over the planet that have receded and in some cases nearly dissapeared completely. Greenland has more green space than it ever did. Archaelogical records show that, indeed, ocean water levels have been both lower and higher than they are currently ... so we know it can happen.

Having said that, human beings are responsible for toxic waste being dumped in the lakes, rivers & oceans; cutting forests in the US and tropical rain forests; over fishing and hunting, yes hunting the exotic big cats, seals, gorillas, and other species to the point if extinction.....
It may be vain to think we could control the weather, which we can't; but its downright hubris to think we can continue down this road and destroy the plant and kill the animals without consequence.
I agree ...

I believe all grass eating animals produce methane?

As humans multiply and we consume more meat, we will increase the number of livestock as well ... hence we directly affect how much methane is produced. I read that here are more than twice the number of cows, horses and sheep in the world as there were less than a century ago ...

and gets shot at by the combined forces of the Bolivian army and never gets hit while she picks them off two at a time
Hey REB . hows it going ... no luck reaching that queen?

I agree with you on the reality aspect of some movies these days ...

Like in the Movie COMANDO with Mr. Swartzenegger .. he runs across a field with a dozen people shooting MACHINE GUNS at him and he only gets slightly nicked once!!!!! IN reality, he would have been shredded to tiny pieces before he ran 30 feet!
