does anyone still not believe that the earth is getting warmer?
You're a giant idiot...
I wish I could live long enough to see the next Ice Age, The earth is old say a few billion years give or take a million here and there...(not the religious forum, kick rocks if you if you wanna argue this) The most recent cycle the earth has been on is this whole ice age bullshit. Glaciers come down cover 40% or more of the earth or so it gets cold, it eventually gets warmer, glaciers retreat, repeat.
The last ice age we had was 20,000 yrs or so ago, we (geological community as a whole) have no evidence to conclude that the Earth has entered a new era geologically, so it stands to logic and reason that eventually another Ice Age will come. On the calender of events that goes back 2.5 million years or so, we're do for an actual no shit Ice Age in the next couple century to thousands of years(A thousand years ain't shit for the earth)
The reasons and explanations behind the Ice Age theory are numerous as the Earth, seeing as it's a huge bitch. The human effect despite what the fear monger's tell you is most likely minimal. Over the last 200 yrs (remember 200yrs here is less than a heartbeat to the earth) All the "damage" we've caused to the Earth to advance our species isn't even comparable to the damage just one of the many combination of things that fucks with our climate. Take for instance with the dinosaurs we have fossil and geological records that show the Earth was far hotter then than it is today. A change in the Sun's output by 1% would have enough of an effect on our climate to effectively create another mass extinction. On and on I can recite more reasons for you, but I'm about to goto bed.
Bottom line, is the Earth getting warmer...sure by bits and pieces over hundreds if not thousands of years. Until it reaches it's natural climax and cools it's self off. Is there anything we can do about it? We can't even fuck it up bad enough to kill the Earth, what makes you so arrogant to think we can save it from itself. This cycle has been around longer than human civilization, I'd rather continue our technological development along it's current lines so that one day we might be able to avoid complete extinction when the Earth gets suddenly cold again.
