    75 million years ago on Earth.



    Fast facts

    Climate: no polar ice caps, world-wide variation, average temperature dropping, sea levels falling, carbon dioxide levels about four times higher than today

    We both know that there are many people on this forum who are, for whatever reason, incapable of understanding very basic concepts in physics.
    Nice ad hom's, really makes you look respectable.

    What is this supposed to prove? There was a cooling trend but it was also warmer than today.

    Species can often adapt to a changing climate, however the speed of the climate shift is very important. If the shift is too fast species will go extinct before they are able to cope with the changes. Species that are unsuitable for the changing climate will disappear and species that are better equipped will flourish and life will go on. Rapid changes in climate cause mass extinctions that upsets the balance of the ecosystems. Humans are dependent on all kinds of life throughout the world, all life on Earth is interconnected, if it is disrupted it will cause much stress in forms of food shortages for those that are most vulnerable around the world.

    Thinking that this will be a sudden climate shift is the problem. But I agree humans are more prepared for any sort of change than they would have been in the past.

    No amount of taxation or change from us will prevent what the Earth and the universe have in mind.

    The current thinking is that the climate is changing too fast right now, however life is pretty tenacious so we'll have to see.

    How a Few Species Are Hacking Climate Change

    We can work to slow the emission of carbon into the air decreasing the potential future effects of climate change right now. However we have to switch to alternative forms of energy for this to be feasible. It's all possible without undue burden, we just have to want to do it and put in the effort.

The price of gas has been going up since spring with this dumb summer blend and all those stupid additives, that makes me mad. Stop with all this stupid stuff on cars, your dumb regulations have me paying $25,000.00 for a car that should only cost me $20.000.00. Your costing me money. You want to do something about climate change, fine, you do it. Only leave my wallet alone!
    You can't control the weather but Obama, Gore and a whole gaggle of Leftists think they can.

    There is NO leaving you alone when it comes to climate change. THAT is the whole evil point behind it. Greater control of government over THE INDIVIDUAL.

    What? Are you telling me that raising CAFE standards, destroying our energy business, and raising taxes will not change the course of the Earth and Universe??? What kind of insanity is this??? Sir, you are truly a denier!

    No, no, there will be a utopia if we can get these things done, it is just a coincidence that it also increases the size and power of government, takes liberty and freedom from the people, and concentrates power in the hands of liberal politicians.

    Good job Barry! You moron.
    So now we're going to blame Obama for not stopping something that is a hoax anyway? The ODS is strong with this one.

    Its even cheaper if you just ration electricity, fuel, and population.
