the chief do you have any other books written by a scientist who discusses climate change? If not then indeed you are taking the viewpoint you agree with and endorsing it (wich is not objective thinking--any college level essay requires you to research both side of your arguement).

If that is you in the orange shirt (on the pics previously posted--this page) please stop posting here and begin an exercise program---(this doesn't mean another day catching brookies--but it does mean swimming, jogging, riding a PEDAL bike etc.).

The exercise program will reduce stress and you will feel better about things in life...wich will make us all feel better...GOOD LUCK!!!

I find it curious that, the Democrats so willing to kill coal power electricity in the U.S., while at time eagerly selling our coal to China.
Civilization rest on pillars of agriculture and industry; agriculture requires water and industry requires energy. Industry reduces the labor necessary for agriculture and made slavery obsolete, but presently industry supplies most of the jobs for a modern civilization. If I wanted to destroy a civilization I would cut off the water or the energy. Oh that's right, our government has already done that.
All we have to do now is wait.

I think there's a better picture of him on Dingus' thread: http://www.supertopo.com/climbing/thread.php?topic_id=2208501&msg=2209012#msg2209012
TRAIN ENGINEERS or any other kind of ENGINEERS & ECONOMISTS are NOT SCIENTIST

Uh, you might want to have a word with the students and faculty at CalTech, MIT, Harvey Mudd, etc as well as most of the people working at NASA.

BTW- an opinion from an uneducated fool such as yourself is not "fact" no matter how much of a tantrum you throw.

Incorrect. Try again. SERVICES sector provides "most of the jobs for a modern civilization.", not industry. This is common knowledge to anyone with a basic understanding of economics and labor force issues. The only cases where it is even close is third world countries and it is still roughly equal in those cases. First world? About 2:1 services jobs to industry jobs.

Just wanted to make sure others knew that a lot of them agree with the basics of AGW, cuz we know you wouldn't mention it.

Back when humans were largely nomadic tribes living off the land and not creating mountains of waste, the earth's biosphere was in balance. Then we began to see the advantage of farming and ranching. Still the Earth was cool with it. Then we realized that by adding chemicals and steroids to the mix, we could increase yeilds and profits, allowing some people to have more productive and leisurely lives. Soon signs of nature's imbalance became apparent- polluted water table, polluted atmosphere, increased diseases traceable to industrial run-off, extinctions, changing wildlife population dynamics.

Humans became concerned and pushed for more regulation of industrial waste. Slowly some reversal of the damage was made. But the companies that had their businesses regulated were not happy and fought every step of the way (and continue to do so) by using disinformation and self-funded studies to "prove" that the experts were wrong. Big Tobacco is the poster child.

Now we're finding that our atmosphere is changing in ways we didn't previously have the ability to understand. And it looks pretty bad for the future of mandkind if nothing is done to change it. Billions of people living in cities needing larger yeilds of food and energy to maintain their existence. And guess who's pushing hard to keep the status quo? Yes,the very same businesses that profit from it.

Do you think that by trying to reduce our "footprints" on the Earth, we might be able to bring the Earth back into a better balance, or should we continue on blithely thinking that we aren't causing any harm...

zzzz...science bashing...zzz

Cigarettes were conceived, manufactured, and promoted without an assist from scientists.

But you have never let facts get in the way of a perfectly good rant, or making yourself look like a fool. So please, carry on.

What's with the ED shouting, THE CHIEF????

I imagine your eyes BULGE OUT when you do that lol.

I wasn't aware forcing India, China and the USA to do anything at all, is part of the science of climate change.

But what do I know, I'm a hypocrite and not an egoless reincarnated mongol warri-heheheheheheheheehe-or, shitting white turds and living in harmony with nature like you.

Smoking has been hazardous for 7000 years. No scientists needed.

Industry using science is the problem, not science itself.

Science was the primary source of learning about the terrible consequences of smoking. Do you give them credit for that?
