personally, i don't care for all the granola munching moonbeam lovin' tree huggers and there carbon credit save the earth crap. the earth has survived worse things than what we humans can throw at it. as a species here, are time is limited on the grand scale of things.
no, i am not a global warming denier. i believe it is a real. we do have some pretty concrete evidence of how warm the earth was 65 - 90 mya. i have no idea about gas diffusion and all that fancy stuff. however, 0ver 65 mya dinosaurs were frolicking in a tropical climate 300 miles from the north pole.
the following linkus thingie has references to co2 levels and there probable cause.
now, before we all get our panties in a bunch and shout out about continental drift in what not, i have a couple of scientific looking maps for you.
and you have to scroll down half way for the map on this one, the article also talks about the ocean-cycles too
and if you really want a good laugh, watch penn & tellers episode on recycling for some insight on the carbon credit scamola.
i dont know how anyone has a frame of reference on whether the weather/temperature today is unusual when you have 4.5 billion years of data to examine for trends.
i think we should just shift the calender to accommodate the later start of summer and winter.
al gore is a tool.
