Dangerous Place






***Update:From the way-back machine:

Time Magazine, Monday, Jun. 24, 1974:
"Whatever the cause of the cooling trend, its effects could be extremely serious, if not catastrophic. Scientists figure that only a 1% decrease in the amount of sunlight hitting the earth's surface could tip the climatic balance, and cool the planet enough to send it sliding down the road to another ice age within only a few hundred years."

A little anecdote .... an aquaintance was fishing ( net ) on James Bay.
He was in a motor boat. While pulling up the nets he was surprised by a polar bear. In spite of having a motor in good working condition and a slight lead in the getaway...he was almost caught by the bear who got both paws on the transom and nearly swamped the boat.

I propose a pool: When we're done with global warming (and please GOD make it soon), what will be the NEXT device the lefties use to try and force socialism on us? I think it may be ill-fitting footwear...

They're already moving on the next device ... socialized medicine (then they'll own our bodies and can push other liberty rotting things down our throats).

No, I think this Global warming thing has got a long way to run. What they'll do, they'll change the theory to counter any evidence that discredits their models. I remember 6 or 7 years ago, they said that GW would tend to weaken hurricanes. Then we had a few good storms and the model was changed to match the evidence. "Oh, we meant stronger hurricanes."

Like the ozone hole... CFCs were banned, not as many were released into the atmosphere, yet we've had the most extensive ozone holes ever after the ban. So the ozone-hole contingent modifies the theory. Now they say that it will take until 2050 to see results. "You know, after we're retired."

P.T. Barnum would've been proud of these snake oil purveyors.
