omgz you dont get it do you, global warming causes cold winters and we have to do something about the fartycowz and we have to do it NOW or its too late, place pay higher taxes so we dont have to hurt the fartycows when we get rid of them by shooting them into space. mother nature is going to be real pissed off if all of the fartyspacecowz are not contained. plus if you drive a car you are ded anywayz. please get rid of all the carz and fartz, dont use electric ity and offer your firstborn to government control. thankz and good night.

I guess these people don't realize that we have been going through global warming ever since the last ice age and will continue until things start reversing towards the next ice age.  Shame on those cows and their farts for contributing to global warming.  While they are at it why don't they slash and burn all the rain forests on earth.  All that decomposing organic matter produces more methane gas than those cows ever will.  Oh!  And while were at it we better put catalytic converters on all the volcanoes on the planet.  One volcanic eruption puts more sulfurs, hydrocarbons and all those other nasty toxins emitted by car tail pipes in a 10 year period.  Will they ever learn? :rolleyes:

Global warming is mostly a bunch of bull shit. i remember about having to watch about Al Gore talking about it. Funny how he got owned when he couldn't prove that we were the main cause of it. As for the cold weather and rain, it's been rather cold here in New York. I can came home the other day at 2 am and the temp was in the 50s. We came close to beating the record for the most amount of rain in the month of June. Because of this I haven't been in by pool yet. :'(

You guys...it's called CLIMATE CHANGE now.  Get with the times. :dancing:
And yea, it rained here for the entire month of may, so I know what you mean.

Yah!  It's climate change.  Normal people call it Summer, Autumn, Winter and Spring.  Every day is a little different then the others.  I remember when they first found and started monitoring the hole in the ozone over the north pole.  The scientists panicked.  It they were right the ozone would have been gone about 15 years ago.  Then they found the ozone was thinning and if their original predictions were right the ozone it would have been gone 10 years ago.  The problem with most scientists is they have their hypothesis, they do their research and experiments but they discard most results that contradict their hypothesis.   :bonk:

Meh, there is global warming, that much is obvious, and technically the colder climate is part of it, mainly the climate fluctuating like it always does in an attempt to balance. All we have done is slightly accelerate it, but what it technically is is us coming out of an ice age, which we are still technically in. People bitch about the planet getting hotter and the ice dissapearing, but the biggest problem, is thousands of years from now, we will snap into another ice age. Though, not like it is going to affect me much.

And really, I blame china at the moment. America hasn't really been the cause since the 1940s. Though I am glad that all of the Stupid Usless Vehicles, or SUVs, are dying finally. That and the useless luxury pickup trucks that people buy to go to the freaking mall, rather than actually use to do something.

Anyway, I guess the summary of what I am trying to say is,

Yuppies=fartycowz.  :sheman:

LoL, not really. It doesn't really matter anyway. It isn't like doing hippy shit is going to do anything. My stuff is just based off of how the climate works. I am actually neutral in the argument. I just hate SUVs.

thats the trouble, nobody, including you, knows how the climate works. what you can go get and read and try to learn about it it mostly cooked up anyhow. a warming trend? says who? sure there is more smog around where we drive more cars, but what does that have to do with global warming and the end of the world? if i try to have a bbq in my living room the same thing will happen, but it wont kill everyone, probably just me. you think im worried about emissions changing the climate into disasterville if one single natural even t can do more damage than everyone ever has? i sure dont. of course that doesnt mean we need to be dirty, im all for having clean vehicles and whatever, but not because its a government mandate and has to be taxed out the ass. when that happens, ifs obvious where the myth comes from. they want you to pay more taxes and lose more freedoms (by freedoms here i mean driving a car thats not a pile of shit just because it might smoke a bit less), and while you are at this tax paying and freedom giving, you should also think that its in your best interest to do so... what a great plan! if we convince them they have no other choice they will pay us! woohoo!

I'm not saying I know how the climate works, and you are correct in what you are saying. I am just saying what is the main pattern that has emerged since the dawn of time. Basically the the climate fluctuating from hot to cold. It happens. I mean, back in the 1970s, they though that we were heading into an ice age. There is global warming, but it is only slightly accelerated, and is pretty much natural. There is nothing that we can really do about it. It would happen without humans, just slower.

By the way, I forgot one thing about the whole Global warming thing that I am very happy about. The large focus on clean coal technology, because nothing burns cleaner than Anthracite. Looks like the Skook will finally get a huge stimulus bonus that it has been waiting for since Anthracite fell from power.

The weather channel said this morning that Hartford Connecticut had the earliest snowfall in 100 years and that Worcester Massachusetts had the earliest snowfall since they started keeping records in 1886.

Oh God, I feel so guilty.........I better send Al Gore another big check. And tell obama to raise my taxes even more.

But the Bills won yesterday, and you know nothing about shitty weather, you wanna try living over here, 1 inch of snow and this whole country is paralised.... :D :D

I enjoyed watching New England Patriots playing in the snow yesterday, and it's only mid-October.......Think Ill pop across to Arizona for a bit of sunshine.....

In the interest of fairness, and since I started this thread to poke a little fun at the global warming alarmists (who we now know cheat on the data...some Hollywood types are saying Al Gore needs to give back his oscar), I should point out that we have now had the fifth warmest November on record, and that this historically indicates a warmer than normal and more snow-free winter. It all goes to show that climate is not determined over a few weeks, months, years or even decades, but is usually measured in terms of centuries.

Supposed to snow tonight though.
Title: Re: City Sees Coldest Start To Summer In 100 Years......I guess it's global warming.
Post by: jadebullet on December 05, 2009, 04:36:38 PM
Yay it is snowing.


And boy those scientists sure dropped the ball there. Ugh, so much for any credibility for global "warming." From what I can gather from what the scientists were trying to cover up, we are reaching a peak in the warming part, and we are probably going to start declining again. Yay natural climate regulation attempting to keep things steady.

For the record, I do believe in climate change, and I do believe that we are one of the many causes of it, but I don't believe that there is anything that we can do to stop it from happening. Also, unlike the morons who believe that we can stop it, I realize that the climate fluctuates as it tries to equalize. (Hence how there was fear of an ice age in the 1970s)

Oh, and like hell am I going to give up my car.

Really, we need to fix things that are more catastrophic than global warming. Such as the chemicals in our food, and the ****ed up shit that they do to the beef we eat. (way to render at least 7 antibiotics useless assholes.)

Yes and seeing how we only have data on the weather dating back to the 1800's and many global patterns they are now finding take centurys to cycle ( see how sahara flips between desert and lush grasslands every few thousand years.) I have to wonder what they are basing this " Global Warming" trend on. No doubt our use of coal,oil and other fuels have changed things, I am just curious how much is affected by us and how much is just the natural changes to the earth. Don't forget we switch polarity occasionally. Wonder how Farting cows will effect that?

Post by: jadebullet on March 01, 2010, 02:32:00 PM
Once again, I have to say that the climate is changing. Climate Change exists. Global Warming exists. So does Global Cooling. I am sure that we have done some things to mess with it, but we are getting pretty damn arrogant if we are thinking that the earth will be destroyed by it. The Earth has already got the plastic that it wanted, so we are unnecessary.

Oh, by the way, the Earth wobbles like a top, as well has a slightly changing orbit from time to time. It takes forever, but I wonder if that has anything to do with anything.

Someone got a Peace Prize.
Manufacturing ability was crippled in some countries and shifted to other countries who are allowed to pollute more than they ever did, all based on GNP.
An economic shift has occurred in favor of a choice few nations.
And at one time sheep "emissions" from Australia and New Zealand were accused as one of the major factors in Global Warming as well as cattle ranchers here.

A redistribution of wealth has occurred, greenhouse gases are at the same level as ever and in some places higher due to more lax enforcement and more output and the world is in a recession. Climate change is inevitable and naturally occurring. Someone just took it and figured a way to profit from it. Nothing left to do now but go up to the North Pole and start digging, fill the hole with gunpowder and stick in a wick.

With that, it was 50 degrees here a week ago and forty today. I say turn up the heat.

Yeah, they're called Milankovitch Cycles and most climatologists believe they are the proximate cause of each of the ice ages during the Pliestocene. We are just in an interstitial period between ice ages and a new one is coming soon (in geologic time if not in Al Gore's lifetime). The long warm period of the Pliocene ended for at least two reasons: India collided with Asia and forced up the Himalayas, interupting the Monsoon winds, and Panama rose from the sea, connecting North and South America and changing the ocean circulation, cooling the Northern Hemisphere.

Personally, the Pliocene always sounded rather nice to me...a warm stable climate lasting tens of millions of years with lots and lots of animal life. Maybe that's where were headed.
