Besides the green things I do, I share information and knowledge on sites like this(mind you there used to be more diversity on Topix),I use the internet my friend, to speak anonymously ,to share knowledge that is attainable to us all, just words on a screen, not representative of any race, religion or sex, just a human being looking from the outside in. The pen is mightier than the sword,. Perhaps it will motivate some of the younger generation to look at different options. To give pause of the bigger picture. We don't need violence for change to occur, just understanding, and a common goal, for a better world for all of humanity. Not by the ideals or leadership of one man or political party, but a participation of all of us. The tools to do so, are right in front of you as well.Give a man a fish, he eats for a day, Teach a man to fish , and he feeds generations. Take care my friend , So long and thanks for all the fish.
So you are teaching us to do like you do. Which is what exactly again?

How are you reducing the effects of global warming? A wind powered hard drive?

Then the best way to fix you ringers, is get Obama to say exactly that. It's not a problem, so we don't need to deal with it. Watch how Fox would suddenly find that it is a problem.

Thanks!
I love how you libbies, when presented with facts that contradict your rainbow fantasies, you claim the poster is ignorant.

I presented you with scientifically collected data that shoots your "sky is falling" in the foot.
Listen, I told you before, go after your grant money in the name of "climate shifting".

Maybe you ought to study physics if you want to hang out with the big boys, eh?

Thanks for entertaining us with your silly folly.

Or, like you, you can choose to just ignore the evidence when presented, right?

it does humor me to read your irresponsible ignorant posts, though!

Its over my friend, apologies.Yous will never have the opportunity and equality we had back in the 70s. You will never attain a spot amongst the 1%, they just make you think you can. So you follow that yellow brick road to OZ, but you might not like what you find.
the 70's are remembered for stagflation, long gasoline lines, and 'jimma' carter.

i made my money in the 80's and 90's. trust me, you need not worry about my fate, son.

why do you people pretend to know so much about people and things "your" obviously oblivious to?

Where did the glaciers that carved out the Great Lakes go? Oh yeah. They melted.

So what's wrong with being able again to grow crops in Northern Canada and Greenland?

Again, it is rather redundant to debate with some one , who is paranoid, of everything that contradicts their 19th century way of thinking. Step up son, we are in the 21st century. Mankind has done more damage to the biosphere of this planet in the last 200yrs , than all of human history combined. Your inability to comprehend our global problems, is your own failure, not mine. Your insecurities of your nationalistic pride over shadows, simple scientific facts,
