you heard the title

the fact is global warming is a real problem and it needs everyone's attention. Studies from environment Canada show that 2007 will be the hottest year ever. but years like this can be avoided if we just cut emmissions and conserve energy. i love to snowboard and i want my grandchildren to be able to snowboard as well (this is just an example to personalify the topic and add in something persnal to you instead of snowboarding if you will) but i cannot accomplish this by myself it'll take us all as a community to change things.

the truth is with something this big one person cannot make a difference but if many people band together a real difference can indeed be made. it is now the people and politicians of the world that need to realise that this needs to be fixed

i don't care if this topic has been discussed to death because the fact is it needs to be discussed more.

Tink about it and do the right thing, because the truth is we will all be in serious trouble unless everyone helps

I don't see what I can do. I don't have a car, so my mum or dad drive me places, but only when I need to be driven. I bike or walk most places, including school. I recycle. What more can I do?

oh.........

on a serious note though, all were doing by cutting carbon emissions is merely delaying the inevitable collapse of our enviroment, but by doing this we are giving the scientists more time to FIX the problem, not cover the gaping wounds in sticky plasters like enviromentalists do. On another note, there are equal amounts of evidence showing Carbon emissions are warming the world, cooling the world and doing bugger all.

However, as cutting carbon emissions means cutting down on fossil fuel usage it is a better option to follow, oil is running out, and oh no! we wont have petrol for our cars anymore, which tbh, doesnt matter in the slightest, if we really HAVE to we could switch to hydrogen based cars and just nto travel as far, or other alternative fuel sources. The real problem with running out of oil is running out of plastics. The modern world will fall apart without plastics and governments will not be able to do anything about it.

so yes, CO2 emissions COULD be heating up the world, or it could just be a normal enviromental cycle, governments just like to use it as a way to save oil, im not saying its the only reason(im no damn conspiracy theorist, but it is convenient. SO start donating to science labs NOW!

It would be nice if everybody was more aware, but the thing is no one really cares. Alot of people are really self-centered, and can't be bothered with the planet.
#23
I think it's just a climate shift, like what has happened quite a few times. So I'm going to litter, shit on woodland creatures and burn CFC's like you've never seen.
#24
None of this is going to effect me because my girlfreind is going to kill me soon lol. Btw if anyone is wondering why, it's not that I've done anything wrong but she just finds it a turn on to physically torture me, not complaing though ;]

what if your grandchildren dont enjoy skiing? then its a big waste of time and effort.


seriously though, the temperature is only rising like, .02 degrees every year. no need to stress out. of course cutting CO2 emissions is a great thing, but theres no life-or-death situatoin here

Relax, global warming is the greatest hoax this century. Everyone is worried about this year how the weather has been strange, its called El Nino.

Global warming is merely a ploy by liberals to cut down on fossil fuel use, so they can hurt the America. Because that is there plan to destroy everything that is righteous and good in this world.

Are you people completely insane? This is the reason why we have a problem. Everyone is like "oh, well i never liked winter anyway" or "oh its just a temporary thing." WELL GUESS FRICKEN WHAT, its not. It's been evident since the 70's, and if we're not going to do anything about it, then you can watch whole coastal cities like San Francisco, New York, Singapore, and Shanghai go under water. Not to mention the torrential storms that have been occuring everywhere. Look at Vancouver, Canada. I can't believe you selfish fuckers have the nerve to say "oh well, i'll worry about myself instead of saving the planet." I dont even have anything to say to that; the stupidity of those statements should speak for itself.

that means basically nothing. we've only been keeping records of annual temperatures for about 200 years. temperatures are going to fluctuate naturally. there are cycles of warmer and cooler temperatures. we could be in a 400 year cycle of warm weather, nobody knows. 35 years of slightly warmer temperatures means nothing in the large-scale picture

That's true, global warming is natural, were just slightley speeding it up. My useless advise is too live life to the full and make the most of your life and just do little changes like stop littering and make less car journeys, because if everyone did that the world would be better in all ways.

The planet's doing great, it's human beings that are going to get screwed by global warming. The Earth is going to be here regardless, it'll recover in a few million years most likely, the reason we should be worried is because we're going to get a reaction out of all the garbage we put into the atmosphere. That's pretty bad for us, if you haven't noticed, we really should do something about it. Just be aware of it and do little things, we really can't do much more.

About the 200 year records of temperature or whatever, we can gather that now is the hottest it's been in several hundreds of thousands of years through carbon dioxide in the ice cores they dig up and things like that. Still, in the history of years, several hundred years isn't that long of a time period, it is possible that the climate oscilates like this. It's still proven that what we do is detrimental and speeds up the process.
