    Wonder how all those trees got under that glacier 2,300 years ago!

    I mean seriously...

    Then there are those stupid Viking settlements under ice for 1,000 years in Greenland...

    Wasn't warming that killed those folks...stupid Vikings.

    And if it got warm enough to grow trees there and humans managed to survive that period of warmness...right around the Roman era...and before Central heating and air... I mean how bad can it get?

    Those Romans...bet they had some wicked SUVs...

    I'd also like to know what kind of factories and cars they were using to bring us out of the last great ice age......

    Progressives look at the environment as static, nothing changes/or should change................the only thing static is their thought processes.
    I live at the southern edge of the area covered by glaciers and the debris they pushed on their way. We have six veins of coal underground, four feet of vegetation went into every foot of coal, seams five and six are roughly six to seven feet thick (took a lot of vegetation) no doubt a very tropical environment at one time.

    Yes - the question I would like to ax the global warming crowd is what melted the 2 miles of ice sitting on top of where I sit right now. The last ice age covered a great part of the northern US wit that much ice. Yes - 2 miles thick.

    I don't think it was mammoth farts and CO2 from SUVs. I don't suppose it could have anything to do with the sun and planetary relationship - nah...

    My tin-foil hat says a global warming treaty is just another way for governemtS to get more control over the people they govern. As with NSA and their 'brown shirt' theft of our Constitutional rights. It won't be long before we are told that, in the digital age, currency is no longer necessary. That may be true - but it (currency) is not the issue. More 'watch dog' activity is possible with a knowledge of every penny you make, save, and spend.

    Each step doesn't seem so bad in itself. Collectively they (steps) seem to have a greater purpose.

    Fortunately they had not yet invented windows yet so no massive breakage.

    Its called "de-growth"

    Google it. There are actually people who believe we need to regress economically to prosper... got that? What they simply don't understand is that being "green" or "eco-friendly" is a benefit of prosperity. If you doubt that go look at the wonderful environmental track records of the failed socialist states in eastern europe and russia! How could their central planning fail to be green and take care of the environment? Hell, they couldn't even feed themselves... Who cares how much raw sewage or industrial sludge we dump into the Volga when the latest 5 year plan failed to produce enough wheat (from what used to be called the breadbasket of Europe I might add) and we can't even feed the masses. How embarrassing it must have been to go crawling to the decadent capitalists in the United States to buy grain for our bread....

    If you think de-growth and being environmentally friendly is a plan for the third world crapholes you are a friggin moron... You don't have the critical thinking skills required to tie your shoe laces.

    This just in, I got it from a reliable source here in SF that those were a Koch Brothers plant!

    No, no, it wasn't their "plants", it was they planted those plants.. oh never mind, we are way past bumper sticker length anyway...


    I saw a documentary on L. Ron Hubbard and the Church of Scientology, I think when you get to like seventh heaven, or whatever they called it, you get to read about how the world was in pre-historic times, according to LRH. Appears they had DC-8's and all sorts of cars that looked like maybe 1955 vintage, way before fuel injection and catalytic converters and such. Pretty much explains the last Global Warming meltdown.

    With all of the glaciers melting, scientists have projected the earth to look like this with 99.9% certainty:

    It's almost too late, but your donation to the federal government can stop all of this.

    Don't know for sure, but I think it was more related to how much money you spent on those sessions with the metal relay batons with wires alligator clipped to them...

    But since you brought it up, maybe Cuba is at the root of this climate change stuff.. If that is the case, our recent reconciliation with Cuba should be good news as it won't be long before they are all driving Tesla's and such.

    My bad. That's where we used to have our annual "Burning Martian Festivals." Invited friends from a few neighboring stars and it got out of hand. Naked Alpha Centaurians running around everywhere. Yuck!

    They are freeze dried. When global warming melts the ice and raises the sea the sea monsters will will be reconstituted.

    The ancient Romans invented central heating.

    They also had double pane glass windows to conserve heat.

    Check out Pompeii next time you are there.

    Don't you guys know it was all caused by flood geology during Noah's flood a thousand years or so after the world started?

    (I'll have to learn how to use smilies sometime or another. But I'm just now coming out of the dinosaur age.) Ha Ha.

    Borrowed from Dr. Jerry Pournelle's website.

    “Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded—here and there, now and then—are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty.


    “This is known as ‘bad luck’.”

    – Robert A. Heinlein

    wow...that's messed up. I mean, who gives a crap if the environment is degraded, if I'm not there to see it? Why would I care?
