If you think global warming is real, then great!! Lets change the way we live and come up with new ideas to help the environment.

If you dont think globar warming is real, great!! Lets get off our asses and come up with some new tech. so we can "try" to stay ahead of the game.

The only thing we are doing about global warming is agruing who thinks who's write or wrong. Both sides have such a big ego and wouldn't admit it if they were wrong anyways so its a loosing battle.

Seems to me that the glaciers have been melting for quite a while now. Ever since I was a little kid we saw pics of glaciers calving and all the big rivers that are a result of glacial runoff. Are they getting smaller? Sure, but how could that be a surprise?

If the government really wanted to start a first step in reducing the burning of fossil fuels, we could start by shutting off all the dam street lights & requiring businesses to turn off the lights when they are closed. Fly over the country at night and look at the amount of lights that are on at 2:00 in the morning. We came by GL Crossing last night at about 9:00 and everything on the north side of I-75 was closed........ and lit up. I wonder how much energy could be saved nationwide by just shutting off all the lights.

Should we be consious of the threat? Yes
Should we give Al Gore the Nobel Peace prize? No
