    The key word being alters, not destroys. And that is not nearly as drastic as bulldozing 200 acres of forest to build a new subdivision. The two aren't comparable.

    Global Warming is happening. Ok, Mr. Gore may be a little misleading with his statistics, and I don't think we should be in denial with this while fiasco because that hints at laziness and fear, but I don't think Global Warming is completely man-made. In fact, I'd make the claim that most of it isn't. A great deal probably isn't..how do you explain past phenomena before the days of industries and automobiles? And I don't find it threatening. It'll disrupt the ecosystem, but it is supposed to.

    Who are we to try to change the tides of this Earth? We're so goddamn small and meaningless...what happens, happens. Our world, for now, will continue to maintain a sense of harmony. As it has through its ups and downs throughout the last few billion years.

    You crazy global warming fanatics crack me up.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    Most forum members live in a place where in a few thousand years they would be under a mile of ice, if they were still there.

    Yeah, this is the one.

    Please elaborate further on what you mean. You admit that they alter each other, habitat and climate, and so bulldozing 200 acres sounds like it could cause a bigger problem/case for concern about the climate. MP was pointing out that they go hand in hand, and you agreed, and yet... what?

    No. The whole global warming movement is about one thing, carbon dioxide. Carbon, carbon, carbon, carbon, carbon. Reduce your carbon footprint. Blah blah blah.

    I thought those concerned with global warming are also generally against destroying forests?
