Given the frequency of this naturally occuring event it sure is great that we can stop the climate from changing :blink:



How about reading to the end then eh?

j2hyde was pointing out the inevitable cyclical nature of the event. :eh:

I'm just happy we can predict the future and control the climate. It makes me proud to be human :)

It's all just a bunch of theories at the moment, we just have to wait and see which one turns out to be right.

Looking at the map, from 2-4m I get to live on an island :thumbsup: Over 4m I'm fucked. :(

You're right there, i was reading the other day about another theory called the dimming affect where (so some wanky scientists reckon) all the CO2 we produce is actually making the greenhouse gasses efects less noticable, therefore when we start emmiting less carbon and the earth can absorb it we are going to be even more fucked than we thought!

That 14m sea level raise doesn't seem to do enough. It is getting close, perhaps about 20m would do nicely. w00t for global warming. Oh, was that not meant to be the right result?

I wouldn't get to worried over this, you can engineer structures and places to deal with this sort of thing.

Durr, sounds like you'd believe someone claiming to be a 'scientist' saying smoking is a healthy lifestyle choice.

The debate about human influence on global climate systems is over. I'm not a climate scientist, but I'm open-minded enough to take the conclusions from all the major scientific academies and IPCC reports as being proof enough for me. It's your choice to take a different view, but I challenge you to provide peer reviewed evidence for it.
