quote: Man kind has pretty much fucked up everything else in nature
quote: I am not saying we have global warming, but I believe climate change at least partially caused by man is a very real possibility and should not be dismissed because of your religion or some other personal agenda.
quote: I said things have been fucked up by people. That is a fact. I am not an environmentalist in any way. I only stated that people who blatantly dismiss things that are very possible because of personal reasons seems....short sighted.
quote: Never said anything was killing the planet. I said things have been fucked up by people. That is a fact. I am not an environmentalist in any way.
quote: People are NOT going to accept a lower standard of living because you tell them they are killing the planet. So give it up. It's not true anyway, but even if it was, you're wasting your time. The same drive that spurred us to dominate this planet also drives us, individually, to acquire things. Like money, a house, cars, etc etc.
quote: plant and animal extinctions,
quote: And even one species humans wipe out is one too many in my opinion.
quote: Here is a list of species recently extinct in the wild.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extinct_in_the_WildLooks like the last of this species died in June. And even one species humans wipe out is one too many in my opinion. You can argue semantics all day long with recent numbers, and how large the extinction numbers need to be for relevance.http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-216...
quote: References to human caused extinctions get tossed around a lot. Sometimes it is claimed there have been thousands of extinction, that hundreds, sometimes even thousands, of species are going extinct every year. I say that's bullshit. If you say it isn't bullshit then please list at least some of the species that have been driven to extinction in, say, the last fifty years.
quote: Man kind has pretty much fucked up everything else in nature (plant and animal extinctions, pollution, deforestation, seawater acidification), why is it so controversial to examine the possibility that we might be fucking up the worlds climate as well?
quote: As we all know, we can't control nature
quote: Satellite sea surface temperature measurements since the mid-1960s show essentially zero average global temperature change. That's a fact, and you can look it up.
