that would really suck i am happy i am in this generation but it sucks balls for the next generation
even you if there are still skeptics abouth the truth over global warming what is the harm in helping the planet .......... plus being eco -friendly actually works out to be cheaper in the end ...... this is a point for the cheap ski bums that exist in immense numbers on this site
Like the town I live in and grew up in. It'll be underwater in 50 years or so if current trends keep up.
And did anyone read the article in Powder beginning of last year? It mentioned weather patterns ending snowfall in North America, but it said that in europe they will likely have colder, wetter winters, which obviously means crazy amounts of snow. They said that it would be a result of changing arctic currents.
And to clarify to the people ignorant enough to not acknowlege Climate Change/Global Warming, the term "Global Warming" was created over 20 years ago when we didn't really fully understand the situation. Like everyone is saying, climate change isn't just the world heating up, it is the global climate going haywire as a result of our abusive nature to the Earth.
There is really too much detail to get into for a duplicate thread, but there is enough info to convince people to respect the environment around, it's just laziness and procrastination that lets people think that "going green" is a bad thing.
I don't buy into this who "humans are causing global warming" panic going around. The earth has been gradually warming since the daya the ice age ended. But now we blame it on greenhouse gases and human's "carbon footprint". I just find it hard to believe that humans can have such a drastic impact on earth climate. There's a really good book that illustrates a lot of these points called "Climate Confusion: How Global Warming Hysteria Leads to Bad Science, Pandering Politicians and Misguided Policies that Hurt the Poor" by Roy Spencer. Global Warming is a huge marketing gimic, think about all the "Green" products out there and hybrid cars. Cow farts produce more CO2 then anything, show should we get rid of them. And did you know walking to work would produce more CO2 then driving, the food production that would be required to replace the calories you burn off is 3 times what your vehicle would produce. I laughed at Schwarzenegger saying we're gona reduce California's greenhouse gases by 10%, well, California produces 1/10 of 1 percent of the worlds greenhouse gases and would have little or no impact.........again, a political gimic designed to get votes. Now I'm not saying go out an pollute all you want. The smog has a bad effect on the air quality. I'm just saying, don't believe all this global warming be caused by humans hype that's being shoved down our throat.
