Global warming is not likely to wipe out the human race, most definatly not in our life time it will most likely lead to a mass extinction over the next 1000000 or years however. Sad though that this is avoidable, sadly though greed has more power than intelligence .

With out a change in political ideas, not much imo, it is more a case of us having to live with the consequences of our actions. Or more accuratly the consequences of those who only care about their own financial gains actions.

IMO it is extremely unlikely that global warming will  wipe us  out.  It can however, screw up very badly the ecosystems and weather patterns, lead to sea level rise and other environmental problems.  It truth, we have no idea of the extent of problems it can cause as computer models can only account for known variables, but what about varibles that are unknown?  It has the potential to cause a great deal of economic hardship and environmental discomfort and loss of habitat for mankind, and make life in general pretty miserable, so it is no joking matter.  It is not too late however, there are ways of switching over to non-fossil fuels, such as the combustion of hydrogen, and other green technology.  This country should be leading the world in finding alternatives, but you all know that is not happening as this administration had other priorities.   And I was rather disappointed that the Clinton administration did so little about it also for that matter.  So, it looks like both parties deserve some blame.

It's a little laughable, at times, to think that we can really have any sort of significant effect on our planet.  A shift of less than on degree of the axis of rotation of our planet turned the Sahara from a plush grassland to the largest desert in the world.  A temperature shift of a degree and half suddenly warmed up Europe and brought an end to the dark ages.

Such small things...so tiny and insignificant to our frame of reference...and yet they hold the power to transform our civilization as we know it, to the extent of leading to the extinction of entire species.

And people are claiming we can save ourselves by driving less?  There isn't a soul on earth who knows if that would have any effect whatsoever.  Frankly, it is presumptious to think that it might.  We are surely the most arrogant species on Earth, to think that our pathetically insignificant species could actually cause anything more than a blip on this planets climate.

And yet we have killed off more species of life then any animal that has ever lived on the earth.

::sarcasm on::
Seems pretty insignificant of us to do this.
::sarcasm off::

We are having a huge effect on the planet.

I'm not a believer in global warming, but I'd be grateful to be proven wrong if it'd kick in by tomorrow.  This winter is feeling like glaciers should be on it's way to oklahoma. Got 10" of snow in November where I live (I've never seen that much). The panhandle got 10" in December. Got over an inch of ice last weekend and now this weekend will (supposedly) dump 4"-8" of snow on top of the ice, which hasn't melted much. Whereever global warming is happening, bring some over here! Al Gore, Help us!
Gonna get the pick out to clear out as much ice as I can before the snow hits.

What you are saying just reinforces the points of global warming, weather patterns changing and dumping large amounts of moisture in places where it doesnt normally happen and removing it from places it normally does.

well i think your all being negative,you may all believe that death is floating just above your head, but ill be just fine!

what will u die of,well freak storms, flooding,ice age conditions,none of these will wipe us out,its when a comet or another major tsunami happens these will certainly dwindle our numbers,

being positive in the interment eyes of death is the only way forward,even if you do end up being crushed to death or incinerated or even smashed to smithereens its probably for a good cause....as its being stated,at the end of the global warming effects now this is worrying every one starving to death together or if you survive that, gradually melting and ultimately catching on fire!

earth and venus defiantly would be twins at these stages, for some strange reason though i believe we wont end up like a poll of smoldering sick,i believe that as we all know this is as-well part of a natural earth cycle we are just interfering with our emissions,the future will be better and things are in place for change.
