Whatever happened to phones that just made phone calls?
They're still out there, just like cars with manual transmission, typewriters, and LP record players. They have their passionate advocates, but most people with more functional devices that can do all that and more just shake their heads in confusion and mutter under their breath about old people and move on.
One of these is not like the others... manual transmission is still very common (at least here in Aus) and gives better performance and petrol usage (and is cheaper).
The chances of nukes and bang bangs over this are very, very low.
Yeah, keep telling yourself that, if it makes you feel happy. And there was no way WW 1 was going to happen
Fact is, nobody remembers all the times sabers have been rattled and nothing much happened, and yes, there have been plenty of those times. But those times the russian roulette trigger was pulled and the gun went off - those will never be forgotten by people who are engaged.
History does indicate that Hitler did want large portions of WW1 (he just didn't want Britain and the US to fight).
"Also I assume that you don't think volcanoes in Antarctica aren't causing melting in the Artic as well, that's a pretty big clue that they're not the main cause. Typical global warming 'reasoning.'
Typical baseless and unsupported denial.
Any reputable source can provide you with information about the warming trend. (I suspect you might not know what a trend is so feel free to google it)
This year in Sydney, Australia we are oncourse for the hottest year of record, we had the second hottest October on record, the most days over 30 degrees in winter, we had the driest October or record and then a very wet November. This year we've had usual amount of flooding, and higher than usual storm activity.
Perhaps it is you that should abandon your religion of denial, instead of practising blind ignorance and ignoring the majority of people qualified to tell you about the Eath's weather.
Australia never had fires before global warming? I must inform all the uni-professors about this as they seem to think there have been. Or you mean there haven't been as many in your life time and you are just now noticing them?
Have a look at this list." I want to point two interesting things out to you, the first is that the recent fires are the only major fires to have occurred October, which is very early in (or before) the bushfire season. Only two occurred in November, the rest occurring in December or latter, to me that would suggest that the climate is changing. The second thing I'd point out is the frequency of major bushfires has increased. I also take it that you are turning a blind eye to the number of weather records broken this year.
And those pesky third world countries that could have never survived this long without you caring over them. What will they ever do? I mean it isn't like Venice or Holland has any insight into this situation. It isn't like making buildings and islands is out of the question. Most worst case scenarios place the sea level rises at 2 to 5 feet over the next 90 or so years. It will be unpossible for anyone to do anything about it. Well, you can relax, most of them will be knocked off by typhoons and hurricanes that have never happened before global warming too. Or are you thinking of the Maldives who are not too poor to purchase another set of islands-
Yes because third world countries can afford to build dikes and islands in place far less suitable to them as Venice or Holland. I don't think anyone's saying there was no typhoons or hurricanes before global warming (unless you are?). No, what people are saying (with data to back it up) is that the frequency of typhoons and hurricanes are increasing. Sea level rises are predicted to increase the flooding of cities, but they will also have a very real impact on the tourism industry doing significant economic damage
As for the Psychiatrist, I think maybe you should be the one seeking it. I see you completely ignored the part about saving money being a fallacy and instead went for the emotional arguments. That is either because you are a con artist who knows nothing purposed to fix climate change actually touches it or that you have been brainwashed into thinking anything in the name of it good. Either way, it not a sign of good mental health.
I'm afraid science disagrees with you there, there is a lot we can do. I went for the more obviously flawed arguments, because I shouldn't need to explain why saving money at the expense of those who will have to live in the world you destroyed is immoral.
I think you might need to see a psychiatrist... I for one will be alive when the major changes take effect (within the next ten years
If you think the worst from climate change is going to be in the next 10 years, I think you are the one who should consider help. Not that I'm saying we should do nothing. But even if we stopped adding CO2 to the atmosphere tomorrow, it would take more than ten years for the full effect of what has been done to be realized.
I said nothing about the full effect, we may not see that for a century or more. I said major changes, as in changes that will realistically effect peoples lives in a major way. Models indicate that these will increasingly occur during the next ten years (and longer).
