Lets you, the scientists that don't work for the govt are wrong. Ok I believe the scientists that work for the govt and are funded by the govt are wrong. They are saying what they are told to save their jobs. Most indepedent scientists think we have a minimal effect on the climate.

I dont take anythign the UN says seriously. Again they have to tow the religion of global warming in order to give the UN more power. The UN will never tell me what to do.

I drive a small car to work, I live in a small house (actually 2 small houses). You're high priest al gore lives in a house that uses more fossil fuels in a week then my 2 homes use in a year, but i'm suppose to take him seriously? THink not.

I really don't give a shit what the world wants, I do what I want, you do what you want and stop trying to force your religion of global warming on me.

Some of you guys must spend all day on here. Isn't there something more to life?

Some were offended by my remarks and took them personally. Here is the way I see it. If you go to the doctor and he tells you that you have heart problems and that if you don't change your diet and stop smoking you'll die. You resond that you "believe" him even though he is the expert. If you want to choose your "beliefs" rather than the experts. I guess that is OK you aren't affecting anyone else, well except for the smoking.

When it comes to climate change, vitually ever scientist in that area of expertise sees global warming as a fact. The ones who don't work for oil companies or special interests. Just like the doctors these are the experts. Just because you don't "believe" doesn't mean there is any validity to it. This is science not religion. The big difference here is that your "beliefs" affect not only your life but the lives of everyone on earth. Just because you believe the world is flat doesnt' make it true.

The reality is it doesn't make any difference what you "believe!" The citizens of the world are demanding change. Even Bush is having to take it seriously. For those few who are hold outs they too will change. This years weather patterns were just the start. Remember in years past when a cat 4 hurricane was unheard of? This year all we hear about it Cat 5! People are freezing, dieing of heat and getting flooded. Each year it will get progressively worse. So just in case you don't believe now, you will in the future. Then their is the friends of the conservatives, oil companies. You don't want anyone telling you what to do. They have ever intent of raising gas prices until we stop using so much oil. They will reach a price where you will stop driving that monster truck. That might be $5 a gallon or $6 a gallon but it will happen.

Call it what you want but belief has nothing to do with this issue. We have no real choice but to save our lives and our earth. The only question is how long will it take us to wake up! I call that Arrogant and Stupid. You can call it whatever you want. In the end, it doesn't really matter.

Jim,

My independence isnt' for sale... therefore you can't afford me. And those 250% of GDC payments are normally 5 year forgiveable loans. Unlike you jim i'm not a whore and not forsale.

Jim,

Why would I have the S6 I already have the S7 and the S66 and S24 along with the l,a and h. My book is about 65million but i'm independent so I don't need to get much bigger. I'm at and 92% payout on GDC and you can't afford me. I have no desire to work for a wirehouse or captive firm that i have to sign my book over to. I get offers everyday for those wonderful 5 year fogiveable loans. thanks I'll pass.

I'm hardly reactionary and my former domestic situation hardly has anything to do with the myth of global warming.

I do not trust govt or UN funded people to tell the truth, when all they want is more money to save their jobs and give the govt more power over my life.

And again YOU CAN'T AFFORD ME but moving back to pittsburgh is a goal of mine.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A collision 160 million years ago of two asteroids orbiting between Mars and Jupiter sent many big rock chunks hurtling toward Earth, including the one that zapped the dinosaurs, scientists said on Wednesday.

ADVERTISEMENT Their research offered an explanation for the cause of one of the most momentous events in the history of life on Earth -- a six-mile-wide (10-km-wide) meteorite striking Mexico's Yucatan peninsula 65 million years ago.

That catastrophe eliminated the dinosaurs, which had flourished for about 165 million years, and many other life forms, and paved the way for mammals to dominate the Earth and the eventual rise of humankind, many scientists believe.

The impact is thought to have triggered a worldwide environmental cataclysm, expelling vast quantities of rock and dust into the sky, unleashing giant tsunamis, sparking global wildfires and leaving Earth shrouded in darkness for years.

U.S. and Czech researchers used computer simulations to calculate that there was a 90 percent probability that the collision of two asteroids -- one about 105 miles wide and one about 40 miles wide -- was the event that precipitated the Earthly disaster.

The collision occurred in the asteroid belt, a collection of big and small rocks orbiting the sun about 100 million miles from Earth, the researchers report in this week's issue of the journal Nature.

The asteroid Baptistina and rubble associated with it are thought to be leftovers, the scientists said.

Some of the debris from the collision escaped the asteroid belt, tumbled toward the inner solar system and whacked Earth and our moon, along with probably Mars and Venus, said William Bottke of the Southwest Research Institute in Boulder, Colorado, one of the researchers.

DEADLY COLLISION

The collision is believed to have doubled for a while the number of impacts occurring in this part of the solar system.

In fact, while the bombardment of this region of the solar system due to this shower of debris peaked about 100 million years ago, the scientists said the tail end of the shower continues to this day. Bottke said many existing near-Earth asteroids can be traced back to this collision.

"Imagine breaking up a big, big boulder on top of a hill and all the fragments rolling down the hill. And somewhere at the bottom is a village called Earth," Bottke said in a telephone interview.

The dinosaur-destroying meteorite, thought to have measured 6 miles across, plunged into Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula and blasted out the Chicxulub (pronounced CHIK-shu-loob) crater measuring about 110 miles wide. The researchers looked at evidence on the composition of this meteorite and found it consistent with the stony Baptistina.

The researchers estimated that there also was about a 70 percent probability that the prominent Tycho crater on the Moon, formed 108 million years ago and measuring about 55 miles

across, also was carved out by a remnant of the earlier asteroid collision.

Philippe Claeys of Vrije Universiteit Brussel in Belgium, who was not involved in the research, said by e-mail the findings were "clear evidence that the solar system is a violent environment and that collisions taking place in the asteroid belt can have major repercussions for the evolution of life on Earth."

Bottke emphasized that point. "Dinosaurs were around for a very long time. So the likelihood is they would still be around if that event had never taken place," Bottke said.

"Was humanity inevitable? Or is humanity just something that happened to arise because of this sequence of events that took place at just the right time. It's hard to say."

that woman works for a govt funded school. Of course she's going to say man is warming the planet the sky is falling. Her job depends on it.

Caretaker - you bring out a very compelling argument. However, for some of the Gore followers: the sky is still falling.
