    This is an article that touches on the subject. There is something quite interesting about the study, and the matter of follow up to it's implications.

    nsf.gov - National Science Foundation (NSF) News - U.S. Fires Release Enormous Amounts of Carbon Dioxide - US National Science Foundation (NSF)
    Because when a forest burns, the subsequent new forest growth in the coming decades sequesters the carbon that was released by the initial forest fire. This is carbon cycle 101 here.

    I just explained it. If you can't understand the science behind basic chemistry in terms of dissolved gasses in water and positive feedback's, then you are obviously completely ignorant of the science behind AGW. You probably should read up on it before debating it further.

    Your scientists don't back your claim. Perhaps you can provide a link that supports your theory, rather than demanding it be seen as infallible. Basis logic 101.

The US government can only do so much. If, on the other hand, people work together to force the hand of large corporations by using market forces, then this issue could be solved much more efficiently.
    It's nice to believe that, if the government stepped out of the picture, people would fix the problem themselves. But you know that's not going to happen, human nature being what it is. For me, the big news here is that the lamestream media infotainment industry, which used to cover news, did not cover this event.

    You missed the point. First I was agreeing with you, they could have all been from the city. And second, I was pointing out again that it wasn't really that large a crowd. Just a messy one. And finally, if you took a look at any video or photos of the event, it's not a stretch to think the majority are unemployed socialists.

    Quite possible the biggest climate march in history was held today in NYC! But what they are protesting for (policy changes to offset climate change), is all a farce! [/FONT][/COLOR]

    ... and then they all went home and shut off their electricity and parked their cars for a month.


    Oh wait, they didn't?


    So it was all for show then...

    Yes as I explained they're typically the initial catalyst for more or less carbon being naturally sequestered in the oceans. In the past, c02 was a positive feedback resulting from initial warming.
