Al Gore Hates Trees by Elvis-Chupacabra Al Gore Hates Trees by Elvis-Chupacabra
Al Gore Hates Trees... and all other members of the kingdom known as Fauna! Why? Well, CO2 - the dreaded Carbon Dioxide - is nothing more than plant food.

The simple fact is that the Earth is creating no more carbon. The carbon in the CO2 you are exhaling right now has been here since the planet was formed.

So, why is Carbon now the boogeyman? Political opportunism notwithstanding, the carbon released by "fossil fuels", or "hydrocarbons" were stored when the Earth was younger, more active and alive with volcanoes, primordial seas full of living organisms and dense rain forests. Those things died and that is why it's called "fossil fuel"! Your car burns the hydrocarbons stored up by dead plant and animal matter.

Many of the world's great oil and gas deposits originated in the shallow seas of the Permian and Devonian epochs which were teeming with plants and animals, many nearly microscopic! Scientists believe these great "blooms" of plant life and subsequent proliferation of critters who fed on this plant life were the result of the high CO2 in the atmosphere. The Earth has gone through several of these periods in a form of self-regulating control of atmospheric gasses.

So, unless we burn all the coal, oil and natural gas at once - and throw in a couple of thousand volcanoes - we won't see all that ancient carbon released any time soon. In the meantime, the old planet will just keep on storing carbon the old fashioned way: plant growth. (Secret: Plants die and rot, which is why the seas and soil create 99.96% of the Earth's "greenhouse carbon gasses"... not you and me and Mrs. Brown's cows!!!)

Face it, Al Gore hates trees and plants. They are taking away his rice bowl, because they are doing naturally what he's charging all the hippies to do: grow more plants.

It wouldn't hurt to plant more trees you know. Industrialists have enough land for factories anyway, save the rest for citizens and flora (fauna is another word for animals, flora is plants).

Okay, good point for plants (which, by night, act the opposite way rejecting co2 and absorbing O2). But the real issue is "what about human beings ?" What regions will see their water supplies drained or increased? How much will the food chain be shattered by the actual warming? How many climatic refugees?

So when the hydrocarbons were stored ... and what you argue the climate can only return to ... was it habitable for 6 billion humans?

Also do you still listen to the weather forecasts? You know they can use computer models?

If you look at the geological record, the earth has warmed and cooled thousands of times.

How 'about those record cold temperatures down in Cancun where the UN's Climate Change Show is going on? Hell, even the believer's cannot say "global warming" with a straight face anymore!

As for computer models, the model has to be based on assumptions, which are ultimately just guesses. If the East Anglia e-mails revealed one thing, it was that data, upon which assumptions (and subsequently, models) were based was manipulated, massaged, withheld, falsified, suppressed and expunged. Therefore, the accuracy of the model is... questionable.

Try this. Spit out that AlGore Kool-aid and follow the money. See who profits from anthropogenic global warming, and you will see that the Wizard was a just a guy behind the curtain all this time, manipulating the ignorant and controlling the compliant.

Yeah. But do you still watch the weather reports which may use computer models? Or are you just like "Naaah sometimes it rains when they say it'll be sunny, screw em, even if their 3 day forecasts are like 70 % accurate, it's all guesses".

Why do airline companies use weather models too? Gullible idiots, right?

"Try this. Spit out that AlGore Kool-aid and follow the money. See who profits from anthropogenic global warming, and you will see that the Wizard was a just a guy behind the curtain all this time, manipulating the ignorant and controlling the compliant."

Apparently the idea was proposed in the 19th century and scientific american has been covering research in the area from the 60s. Long time for the scammers to wait for their return ...

I am all for cleaner energy (we own 4 Hondas!), more sustainable living and stopping pollution. My point in this whole AGW debate is that pollution and carbon emissions are very different things. Carbon is not created by combustion; it only changes state, as it has been here since the creation of the planet.

And like you say... mass extinctions have occurred many times. Who knows, but a stray asteroid might render man-made global warming, the designated hitter, the National Debt and the suspense behind who will win the next American Idol, irrelevant! :rofl:

I prefer to have cleaner air because exhaust fumes from our industries smell bad, and wasting energy is not efficient or comfortable. Other than that...Well. Our environment has survived several mass extinction events--a spike in temperature that we, the entire human race, could cause cannot even begin to compare. Even supposing we cause a Gore-predicted super-cataclysm, the natural world will go on as if nothing happened, and we would be one of the only species to truly suffer from it.
Amusing little creation!

and none of that changes the fact we have massively accelerated it.

yes it has gone through this multiple times before but look at the damn charts, this time; its off the scale. twice as high as every other increase.

who knows how high it can go before its too much for plants to handle, if its not already at that point.

no I'm not bound by any political title, just stating facts you clearly left out.

Those "facts" are highly suspect. Have you not read of the vast manipulation of "data" upon which these facts are based? The East Anglia e-mails? The admission by none other than Phil Jones that there has been no global warming for over 15 years?

The famous "hocky stick" graph to which you are obviously alluding was debunked by a mathematician who analyzed the part of "data" and found colossal errors. As the East Anglia e-mails started to unravel the whole AGW myth, it was suggested that the entirety of the data be re-analyzed... but (gasp!) it was lost! Huh? One of the "most significant scientific conclusions of our time" (Al Gore), and they lost the data?

In the vast scheme of things, man contributes almost no CO2. The oceans, the decaying of plants, volcanoes, geysers... that's the real culprit, if it can indeed be called a "culprit".

Before you trust "facts", make sure they are real.

yeah you don't have any doubts you could possibly be wrong... why else would you have such a slew of information in defense, because you cannot possibly think of that chance.

even if things stay as they are, what are we going to do when the oil runs out? how bout we do things to prevent the possible problem and simultaneously cut our dependency on it.

really what is taking precautions and finding a better fuel source going to cost in the long run?
do not say money, based on my budget someone could live their entire life without a job for less than 10,000,000 $ and still have plenty left over. if anything that should be the yearly income limit, and thats being nice, anything beyond that; charity.

again no I'm not liberal; I'm common sense.

warming and cooling occurs from the ocean current dispersing heat across the planet, starting with the melting of polar caps, eventually reaching a point where the ice caps retreat, the process stops and the ice caps gradually replenish and restart the process. Our impact is accelerating it, going beyond the recurring effect, rather than restart the process it will disrupt it and an entirely different global cycle will take over forcing varieties of species to adapt or go extinct.

if you acknowledge that volcanoes can influence climate, which we have clearly seen, than you have to acknowledge that a constant production of the same chemicals from hundreds of millions of vehicles all over the planet could certainly pose an impact. The real cause of the problems is our overwhelming population, no other mammal has ever reached our numbers, sentience has allowed us to "cheat" in order to reach our amounts, now the planet can't keep up with our hunger or the damage we are doing to it. We should be more responsible with our intelligence.

This isn't about global warming, at all. It's about letting governments scare people into giving up freedom and slowing down economic growth. Just follow the money. Al Gore (and his partner David Blood) is on the way to being the first carbon billionaire, yet Gore uses resources far out of proportion to the rest of us. The whole AGW scheme is about letting the elites of the world control the rest of us. It is about billions of dollars in "research" money flowing towards scientists and universities who produced the "right data".

I am a conservative in every way. I recycled way before it became popular and have always driven small cars. I keep my house at 78-80 in the summer and use fans for convective cooling and around 68 in the winter (I hate the dry heat from central air).

I'm all about conserving hydrocarbon fuels, but the AGW tax and low growth scheme only hurts alternative energy development. And unless we go with nuclear power, all the "renewable" energy sources are at best a stop-gap. The wind won't always blow and solar power ends at sundown. Heck, windmills can be marginally effective under the best of circumstances and deadly to bird populations, especially endangered raptors. [link]

Here is an interesting article - I don't agree with it all - but it is thought provoking in the way it deals with managing energy needs: [link]

ok that thing with the birds is a very small contributor at best. there are like 300 peacocks wandering around up here, been here for over 20 years, how many times have they crashed into something? once; my window at night and all of them are inbred and stupid, I imagine its rather difficult to crash into a moving target of such size and rate of speed, anyone who uses that as an excuse is just looking for them.
and yes I did read the article, and 3000 of a species of bird over 20 years, thats 150 per year, more people die in car wrecks, hell more birds die in car wrecks... I suppose its ironic that the idiotic larger birds crash into less things...

and I don't see how looking into new technology could hurt economic growth, it produces researching jobs among other things, improving solar panels and wind turbines for instance. speaking of which they are already producing better wind turbines shows that they should be given more of a chance.

yes its clear that everyone is trying for more income on both sides. quite honestly they should start focusing more on actions than sides.

and oh yes my house is 100 years old, we use a wood stove and never have even thought about putting an air conditioner in, most recent pieces of technology are the tv I just bought (first new one in 20 years), the coffee maker, mediocre laptop and the hard drive for the other computer.

The article was talking about endangered raptors. The Audubon Society and other conservation groups are getting ready to challenge some of these wind projects under the Endangered Species Act. Under the ESA, the bureaucrats can stop almost anything. That's why we've built no more dams, built refineries or power plants in 30 years!

As for "green jobs", most wind turbines are built in China (I see them coming through the port of Houston all the time) or Europe. If politicians stopped lying about crap like this and just admitted that bureaucratic ineptitude, as a result of laws passed by Congress over the years, has lead to the US being behind the alternative energy curve, we could solve some problems.

Your original quibble was with the fact that I think Al Gore is an idiot and that Anthropogenic Global Warming is a sham. The daily emergence of more and more evidence confirming the latter just the supports the former.

I was just basing that on the graph taken from ice deposits and the fact humanity is clearly having a negative impact no matter how you look at it.
both sides have something to gain from it, democrats exaggerating it to look better than republican, and republican insisting everything is fine and that democrats are wasting time, its pointless! the party system should be abolished, either merge them together or get something else going. simply put everyones an idiot and all the actually intelligent people are being ignored because they have no money.

furthermore, yes a volcano will produce way more co2 than a car, but how many volcanoes are there in comparison to cars, and there is no possible way that a decaying sea creature could produce as much co2 as a car. and really vehicle exhaust is a constant factor that will never subside and not counting everything else. so saying its a small factor is just plain denial.

oh yes that newer more efficient wind turbine; made in usa, oh and someone I know actually, he made a gas powered bike that gets 100 miles to a gallon and goes at a decent speed, still uses gas I know but he's getting way more out of it.

I want to stop this now, I've already defied my state of mind by wandering into this, I'm just leaving it as everybody is wrong about something. maybe if they'd stop whining about gay marriage and "traditional families" (couldn't care less because "traditional/normal" isn't real) they could actually provide some research (not religiously based) that could actually show that exaggeration.

Fair enough. But if you ignore the mounting evidence that man cannot influence climate, believing instead that tailpipes and cattle ranches produce more CO2 than the natural cycles of the oceans and land, then you will be duped by the rich and powerful who want to use this "scare" to their advantage. Study some geology and look at the vast fssil records.

And you mention "ice studies". Do some research into the 2007 ice studies which were totally ignored by the IPCC, because it ran counter to the conclusions that there was a correlation between CO2 in the atmosphere and higher temperatures. Look it up.

My state of mind has never been fixed. I didn't mention but in the beginning, I was an AGW believer, but as it unfolded and the politics and bad science became evident, I began to question to whole "theory". Then, when the bloody politicians began saying, "the science is settled", I knew the fix was in, because science is never final.

Have fun, and thanks for visiting my humble little deviation! Happy trails... :snowflake::snowflake::snowflake::snowflake::snowflake::snowflake::snowflake::snowflake::snowflake::snowflake: :laughing:

Back about 15 years ago, I bought into the whole AGW thing. Then, I did two things: I started following the money and thought back to my old geology classes 40 years ago. Then, it all made sense.

Man contributes between .03 and .0275 percent of the CO2. By contrast, volcanoes contribute about 10-20 times that!
