Unless you are a big global warming sort of person, in which case it's "Oh $**t, we are all gonna die"

You mean junk science.

You mean junk science.

And I suppose YOU of all people have the formal education, knowledge, and experience to refute that "junk science?" Who needs thousands of respected, published, peer-reviewed expert scientists when we have people like Saltshaker and the internet? :rolleyes:

Use your uncommon sense. Global warming is based on the notion the average Earth's temperature is constant. If that is the case, how did we have ice ages? How did we get out of them?
Also the current warming "trend" has flatlined.

Big money and corruption over the past 50 years has taken over everything so it can benefit the global elite, do you honestly think they would forget to get their money and corruption into science?? LOL that would have been a big ooops!

Ah, a feeble attempt at sarcasm. If you seriously believe flying an airliner is threatening the world, how coukd any moral person be in that business? You put tons of carbon in the air for every flight hour.

So I guess you are sorting the majority of people who post here into one of two categories:

1. Dum-dums
2. Immoral hypocrites

Is that how you see the situation?

The temperature fluctuations over thousands of years is a naturally occurring phenomenon. The earth has warmed and cooled and it is continuing to do so. What we are observing is the same trend as has occurred before the modern Industrial Age; mankind has almost no impact on global temperatures. If we want to talk about pollution in general then yes, that is definitely caused by man.

Sigh..... it’s not that the earth’s temperature hasn’t fluctuated before. It’s the RATE of fluctuation that’s at issue.

When 97% of the world’s scientists agree on something, and you’re on the other side of the argument, you should really think about what that means.

Any temperature reading from more than 100 years ago I’m suspect of it!

Until planes can run in piisswater low oil prices are a good thing, I can't imagine a professional pilot thinking otherwise.

Also the current warming "trend" has flatlined.Common sense... A better method than peer reviewed science any day.
Who needs the scientific method, anyway?

"You can't see air, Barnibus.... So it doesn't exist! Use your common sense!"

97% of the scientists? The mainstream media said.

Is that how you see the situation?Work out the miles per gallon per passenger of the majority of our flights (of course not the half empty ones...). I think you'd be surprised at how much more efficient we are than driving.

This is probably the least appropriate topic, in the history of civilization, for which "common sense" appropriate.

If only you had read any of the papers you disregard as junk science...

Believe in Global Warming. Fear It. Shame yourself into submission. Uncle Al needs you in his corner......to maintain HIS lifestyle!

And the uber-hypocrite Al Gore had Florida and NYC under water by this time in "An Inconvenient Truth."

Sea levels are rising...all part of a natural cycle that began before us and our "impact." Our ability to control that cycle is beyond negligible. But feel good anyway telling us to reduce carbon emissions while you jet around in your G5 and live in one of your 15,000 sq ft houses, Mr Gore and Mr. DiCaprio.
