    Has anyone staked claim to Antarctica?

    Here's something to think about. Carbon dioxide has an atmospheric half life of ~50-100 years. Even if we stopped pumping out greenhouse gases today, we're still stuck with what we've already done for a long, long time. Thankfully, methane's atmospheric half life is only around 12 years.
    Antarctica will make for an awesome water park,lol- I call Shotgun. I don't think S's should get all the blame though- NF's tend to try to solve problems by making and listening to music, Woodstock anyone,lol, and that isn't productive either,lol. I say this as an NF myself,lol. What we need is a rich NT bent on world transformation for the greater good,lol. THE GREATER GOOD- Hot Fuzz= awesome movie. We need a guy like Angel to get on top of that CO2 problem,lol.

    Blaming Ss makes me feel better. If we're destroying the environment, at least let me have my bitterness! :steam:

The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    LOLOLOL. Okay, you may have your bitterness. You know- Penguins might just learn how to fly as a result in all of this- They'll probably fly into space and say Thanks For All The Fish,lol.

    Minor nitpick, but the escape speed for hydrogen does actually outmatch the Earth's.

    A unique feature of the Earth is plate tectonics whereby the amount of CO2 released by outgassing is more or less equal that which removed by weathering and deposition. Where Venus is concerned, no such tectonics exist, which might partly explain one aspect of how the two atmospheres differ.

    I read an article stating that the high ratio of deuterium to hydrogen suggests that Venus lost oceans worth of water early on after its formation. How? They claim evaporation and photolysis, but I don't fully understand the process myself. There was speculation that had the oceans stuck around, they might have influenced the kind of tectonics we see happening very early on the Earth, which could have led to a very different Venus. But we all know how the story eventually turned out.

    A few days ago, I remember looking outside and I was just amazed at how the sky looked so deep blue. Usually, the color isn't as deep as it was that day. I wonder if that just weather patterns pushing pollution away for a day.
    Its such bullshit, pseudoscience. Tests were carried out on the methane deposits, it was found that it was unlikely that global warming could start a irreversible, chain reaction as suggested by the supporters of the global warming theory.

    If you really want to stop "global warming" eat more cheese burgers.

    The BBC Horizon program had some good evidence on this - studies showed that in the days following Sep 11, the grounded jets led to a marked decrease in cloud cover over, for example, California, and a correspondingly sudden increase in warming/temperature. it seemed quite marked in the statistics (although I do know that it is difficult to find anyone objective about such things).

    It just shows what a hideously complicated system the weather is.. is it better to tamper or not? I don't know. My personal view is that we should stop trying to stop people burning fossil fuels... they'll be gone soon enough. Instead, spend put all that "wasted" money on reducing emissions & cleaner burning fossil fuel engines into a complete change.. into new alternative sources. If we threw massive resources into eg hydrogen cells we could revolutionise the world energy footprint quite quickly. Instead we throw billions at trying to reduce emissions by a couple of percent. it is treating the symptoms (slightly) and not the root cause...

    Do you have any links to this data? I'd like to see it before I write it off as "pseudoscience".

    Yes, I was watching a program on a Pakistani channel, I can't recall the name. It was on about a year a go on ARY. You just have to trust me on this one.
