As the end of the year approaches I find myself quite excited.

If the end comes I hope it will be impressive.

I doubt any humans will be around to see the end of the world.
Planet Earth will have eradicated it's most dangerous parasite long before then, imo.

Go straight to the top of the class, first man to link climate warming to depleted uranium, I couldn't have done that, even with the help of  magic mushrooms
you don't seem to even be in the class, bro..?

don't you get it? honestly?
...the same forces that are screaming climate change are the ones dumping the DU.
don't you get this?
...it's like; say i'm a window repairman, so i go around at night smashing windows to increase my business during the day
don't you get this?
really?

and you're smart, are ya? thinking you could make me look silly?

Don't you think that the future of our species on this planet is slightly more important than a damn tax, and that this may be the sort of thing we can't afford to get wrong, regardless of what "the system" (whatever that is) says?
of course LIVING THINGS are worth more than some damn tax...

what's happened here is; you've had your window smashed during the night.. and the same person is now knocking on your front door, handing you his business card, introducing himself as a repairer of windows..



you either get it or you don't.

You're doing a pretty good job of making yourself look silly without needing my help !

I think you need to expand your argument to include a smattering of facts. So, the climate change proponents are moonlighting as makers of high-penetration munitions, is that it ?

It's not just the global warming, something's going on with weather in general - here in central Europe was winter in December always snowy. That was like ten years ago. Now we have to wait for snow til' January or even February. This winter is followed by three weeks or month of "regular" spring. Then comes something like a spring-summer. It's really strange, it hasn't been like this.

Could you esssplain to me why various governments are pushing those clunkers called hybrids when their carbon foot print on a period of 10 years is larger than that of a Hummer H2?
Read more here and this is the interesting part.

Because you have to start somewhere. You don't get nuclear power without developing coal power first. To develop a mode of transport that is less damaging to the environment, you have to go through certain steps. One that spews out less greenhouse gases is a start. All the while they'll be working on making the beginning and end of the product life more environmentally friendly.

This is how technology works. You don't just get new, fully formed, perfect solutions straight off the production line. It takes time and investment. And that isn't a reason to run back to your gas guzzling Hummer.

Probably, but for us our demise will be seen as the 'end of the world'...

We are a bit self-centered like that ;)

I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other. I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen anything to show me where the hell Helen of Annoy has been for the past couple of months.

There are way more simpler technologies like for example biodiesel (the technology exist it's just not exploited because it would hurt the wallets of few people which shall remain nameless) (heck like dubya's dad and his co-conspirator with whom I wouldn't go hunting, the bin ladin family of terrorists fame the saudis the quataris et few others).  Another way would be to limit the number of children per family, another way would be to stop buying the useless crap like 10 D photon plasma TV's, paying the kardashians, heck... I'm going to lunch because the list is too long and I would die of hunger before arriving half way through.
