We must stop the earth from spinning! The prescession of the equinoxes varies the amount of solar radiation exposure to the northern hemisphere of the earth!. Those variations have been calculated by astrophysicists and a relationship has been established between glaciation (ice ages) and interglacial periods (warming trends) on this planet with the precession of the equinoxes (varying tilt of this planet). Please, dear god, we must stop this spinning! Someone please stop this planet from spinning! ARRRRRRGGGHHHHH!!!
For more information on earth-sun interaction search: Milankovitch cycles.
BTW, this planet is currently 18,500 years into this current interglacial period. We are just now seeing trees in the arctic circle. The Eemian interglacial began 131,000 years ago and by 125,000 years ago there were forests in the arctic circle. Thus the Eemian was far more abrupt in change as the current interglacial is advancing at a rate-of-change just 33% of the last interglacial. But, we mustn't allow that to block a new tax called cap and trade or carbon credits.
Trees in the artic circle? Where? Greenland? Or are you crediting Canada and Siberia as artic circle?

The question is not glaciation from precession. The question is human activity (that equals bacteria activity) that leads to environmental changes just like the Cyano change the CO2 atmosphere to O2 atmosphere that led to oxygen based life (more efficient way of using energy). We can do the same and destroy our ozone, acidify the oceans, and introduce a thermal change JUST BECAUSE YOU WANT TO OWN THREE HUMMERS, TWO MANSIONS, AND RUN FOUR COKE BASED ELECTRICAL PLANTS!

When the US debt is already at 102% of GDP(and growing), yeah, what's another 1% added on top of what we already aren't going to be able to pay off? Great idea. Sure am glad you're aren't the gov't chief economist. OR, maybe you are.
We could pay off our debt in a heartbeat, unlike the PIIGS.

The 1% of GDP or so that we will invest to halt destruction of the climate and the oceans will be a far wiser investment than the vastly larger sum we just handed fraudulent bankers to enhance their very cushy bonuses.

Because, as McKinsey says, if we don't invest 1% now we'll likely be on the hook for twenty times that in the not so distant future. There is simply no choice, no matter what teabaggers driving Suburbans think.

Please call the bumbler-in-chief admin IMMEDIATELY! You've GOT to tell them your secret. Maybe, just for entertainment's sake, you should tell all of those surburban driving tea baggers how "we could pay off our debt in a heartbeat." Inquiring minds want to know, oh enlightened one!

LMAO that think you have this all figured out. Thanks for the laugh Krusty the clown.

Now I realize facts are hard to come by for you...but, I was just looking at the debt clock. The US federal spending for 2012 is over 3.6 trillion and revenue is 2.3 trillion. Total interest on our debt is over 3.6 trillion and our total debt is over 56 trillion. Unfunded liabilities for what has already been promised to us is over 119 trillion. What kind of world do you live in that this disaster can be paid off in a heartbeat.

Boy, you sure do go to great lengths to avoid backing up your statement that big oil is the cause of the world wars. But I suppose after Teddy R put you in your place on the history of the world wars, this is your only option...senseless personal attacks.
