Stephen_Falken: Not to burst your bubble subby, but CA is around 60° and holding steady already.
AllYourFarkAreBelongToMe: Well, duh. The earth had been through warming/cooling stages eons before we arrived and it will continue to do so for eons after we're gone.
AllYourFarkAreBelongToMe: Oh look it's THIS thread again/still. Let's just assume global warming is for real. Well, duh. The earth had been through warming/cooling stages eons before we arrived and it will continue to do so for eons after we're gone. To think that mankind's, what? Maybe 150 year-old "Industrial age" could have any significant impact on this planet is ridiculous. It's the hypocritical left doing the exact same thing they constantly accuse the right of doing. Fear-mongering. I'm old enough to remember the 70s. Back then we were all gonna freeze to death by 2000. Forty years later we're all gonna burn to death. And then, as now, we take so-called scientists at their word, even though they can't really predict with any degree of accuracy what the weather will be tomorrow. I digress. Back to the original point. Humans are highly adaptable and pretty-darn smart. We managed to put men on the moon within a few measly years of getting the first plane off the ground. So what makes anyone think we won't devise a way of halting climate change in the next 10,000 years should the need arise?
