What is your position on global warming?
I'm about to read and review a new book on the subject. Also, have you read Crichton's book, "State of Fear"?
I've always felt that we should be good stewards of the earth - whether we believed in GW or not.
Keep in mind there are many perceptions derived from this concept; global warming is a natural phenomena that occurs to balance the the global temperature... You have to realize the earth is a hunk of magma that is floating in space undergoing a life cycle; and in the process is giving off its internal heat to space.
Now all the atmospheric input that occurs on the surface of the earth from all the life forms contributes to the thermodynamic equation... The outcome and occurrence of life produces gasses that also go into the atmosphere and impact the natural state of the earth's cycle.
So,recognizing, life and the earth are a symbiotic relationship one can imagine the need to work in accordance with this concept.
The present state of affairs is a concoction of many impacts so it is important to differentiate when one is trying to resolve what ever ones concern is, one needs to be specific...
Pollution is more a local phenomena and only impacts life not the earth itself.. Now as far as life causing global warming the answer is, it contributes; but it would happen anyway, its the mechanism of cyclic cooling of the earth as a rock in space.
Again the notion of global warming contains a few phenomena that of the physical frame of reference, of the metaphysical frame of reference and of the spirit frame of reference. It is imperative to derive a three dimensional solution that actually meets the mark than to deliberate separate answers that will not provide a balanced correction..
The hoopla about global warming is a "smokescreen" to divert attention away from the real problem -- massive and increasing overpopulation. That is the elephant fart in the elevator that few want to acknowledge. Acknowledging overpopulation would mean birth control, abortion, spaying, and ceasing subsidies in welfare and "education" of the litters of spawn dropped by those with no concept of affordability, pollution, and resource depletion.
I think it is happening...based on what I've seen in my little backwater burg.
Back when I was young (I always lived up north) we had snows like you wouldn't believe. FEET of snow...more than once a winter. Sometimes so much snow you could hide a house with it. And summers were warm, but not HOT. Things started to change when I was a young person. The snows tapered off...more ice storms and getting a foot of snow happened less often. Summers started to get hot periods...days of 90 plus temps, sometimes 100 degrees. Now that I'm middle aged, I'd have to say winters (at least the majority of winters) have VERY LITTLE SNOW. Springs come early and summers are HOT, extending well into the traditional cold month of October.

I New it ! The era of "political correctness" may finally be maturing into something slightly better ? NOAA having been instrumental in promoting the whole recent Global Warming alarmism may be returning to it's actual day jobof predicting the weather?

There are two major would shaping forces at risk with a Trump presidency; an economic meltdown brought on by a sharp decline in American productivity, and, a much more important one, the environment. I will leave the economy to another forum, for it is the environment I am much more worried...

Why do people get so emotional when global warming is questioned?As a high school social studies teacher, I find it necessary to present oppsoing points of view on all controversial subjects, including global warming. But frequently people become very expressive in their objections to the...

Why do you not believe in Global Warming/Climate Change?I have no doubt our earth is warming at an alarming rate. One of the reasons I think this is because of the photo I included with the question. Otzi--the Iceman--was frozen over 5000 years ago and has remained that way through all sorts of...
