5 Jun 06 — William Gray, professor emeritus, works in the atmospheric science
department of Colorado State University. He's mentored dozens of scientists.

And he's outraged.

Much of his government funding has dried up. He has had to put more than
$100,000 of his own money into keeping his research going. “If none of his
colleagues comes to his funeral,” he says, “that'll be evidence that he had the
courage to say what they were afraid to admit.”

Namely, that “global warming is a hoax.”

Gray has testified about this to the U.S. Senate. He has written magazine articles,
given speeches, done everything he could to get his message out.

"I've been in meteorology over 50 years,” says Gray. “I've worked damn hard,
and I've been around. My feeling is some of us older guys who've been around
have not been asked about this. It's sort of a baby-boomer, yuppie thing."

Gray believes in observations. Direct measurements. Numerical models can't be
trusted. Equation pushers with fancy computers aren't the equals of scientists who
fly into hurricanes.

“In just three, five, maybe eight years, says Gray, “the world will begin to cool
again.”

He is almost desperate to be heard. His time is short. He is 76 years old.

“Notice how, after rising steadily in the early 20th century, in 1940 the temperature
suddenly levels off. No— it goes down! For the next 35 years! If the planet is
getting steadily warmer because of Industrial Age greenhouse gases, why did it get
cooler when industries began belching out carbon dioxide at full tilt at the start of
World War II?

“Now look at the ice in Antarctica: Getting thicker in places!

“Sea-level rise? It's actually dropping around certain islands in the Pacific and
Indian oceans.

Gray has the honor of delivering the closing remarks at the National Hurricane
Conference in Orlando, Fla. He talks of global-warming foolishness, untrusty
numerical models, underappreciated ocean circulation, overly dramatized CO2
increases, the crazy complexity of the weather.

Unfortunately - and despicably - this article, which supposedly reports the
skeptics arguments, now veers off to the left, accusing Dr. Gray of being on
the "fringe," and dismissing him and M.I.T. professor Richard Lindzen as
being just simply part of the minority "Old Guard." The article conveniently
ignores the fact that 60 international climate-change experts recently signed
an open letter to Canada's Prime Minister disavowing the "fact" of global
warming. See Kyoto Pointless

*yawns*  There's such a fad right now...  either it's "OMGS! GLOBAL WARMING IS REAL!!"  or.. "OMGS!! GLOBAL WARMING IS FAKE!!"  Then we get the "Libral crap media views!"  vs the "Conservitive denial propaganda!!"

Personaly... I can't wait till the weather and the earth gets so out of wake that a good chuck of the human population is eliminated.  So yeah... keep doing what we're doing!  Pointless argueing while we head to our demise!

It's natural the planet goes through these stages all the time.

I remember the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita. Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty and to impress him takes on his multi-armed form and says: "Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds." I suppose we all thought that, one way or another." - J. Robert Oppenheimer.

Yes.. it is.  No one's denying that.  However.. the oh so lovely(read annoying) fight over this whole thing is wheither or not human pollutions of all sorts are causing the cycles to happen quicker and more violently.

Though what really burns me.. is if I say yes...  it is partly because of human controbutions in the bad way... I'm labled a librial idiot who doesn't know a damned thing.   If I dissagree... then I'm a conservitive ignorant fool.

Thus...  I just don't give a damned anymore if humans hand a hand in it or not.  damned either way.

I think this man is senile.  Yes we are in a warming cycle, but is just plainly evident we are fully capable of effecting our planet on a global scale and we are contributing significantly to the current cycle of warming.  Enough so, that in short order, we shall see weather changes that will force major changes in the distribution and lifestyles of the earths population.

A part of me is hoping that Global Warming is true and here to stop this crazy consumer type society we're building.

Apparently, not so obvious since there are meteorologists who don't see it, and there are many of us who are intelligent and logical who don't see it.

"But then with me that horrid doubt always arises whether the convictions of man's mind which has been developed from the mind of the lower animals, are of any value or at all trustworthy. Would any one trust in the convictions of a monkey's mind, if there are any convictions in such a mind?" - Charles Darwin, in a letter to William Graham on July 3, 1881

List them please.  Oh and thanks for calling me illogical and stupid, Iam's.  I knew you were always such a nice guy. (Hi sarcasm)

Oh, and list any credible scientists.  I'm curious.  I see people saying "These scientists! (lists and links) Say that there's global warming!"  And then there are people who say "These meteorologists and scientists (not listing a damned thing... infact this thread had the first link I've seen.  Then again, I don't look at all the damned global warming threads that are popping up faster then the "OMGS!! THE ANTICHRIST AND NWO!!!" threads...) say there is no such thing as global warming!"

Meanwhile, people who know that global warming means winter and summer are getting more extream and odd... (50 degrees in the Adirondacks in Janurary when it should be below freezing, what?  Along with it being 40 in Moscow when it should be -30, what?  WAIT!!  10 inches of snow in Arizona when it should be alot warmer then that...  Oh dear!")  are left shaking our heads because apparently everything is normal.  It's just a cycle... forget that it's stronger then any other cycles....

Want links?  Well I can't link the Adirondack thing.. since ya'know... I'm not linking the contact info for my family.   Moscow is an easy NPR link... bling   And the Arizona one, again, I'm not linking contact info for friends out there.  Quite sure there's a news article about it.  I'd have to google it, and I know how people love discrediting the use of google...

CO2 and temprature show a pretty linear relationship. And we are way past the co2 levels of any record in the past 800000 years.

I think the debate about global warming boils down to this idea that its "Supposed to be" a certain temperature.   Right now its freezing in NYC  last week it was 70 degrees.  Its  wacky weather alright but how do we know how the weather is supposed to be.  In my opinion the earth is a self correcting system.  I agree with George Carlin's take on things


Sorry in advance for the curses.  It IS George Carlin after all.

We're so self-important. So self-important. Everybody's going to save something now. "Save the trees, save the bees, save the whales, save those snails." And the greatest arrogance of all: save the planet. What? Are these ****ing people kidding me? Save the planet, we don't even know how to take care of ourselves yet. We haven't learned how to care for one another, we're gonna save the ****ing planet?

I'm getting tired of that sh**. Tired of that sh**. I'm tired of ****ing Earth Day, I'm tired of these self-righteous environmentalists, these white, bourgeois liberals who think the only thing wrong with this country is there aren't enough bicycle paths. People trying to make the world save for their Volvos. Besides, environmentalists don't give a sh** about the planet. They don't care about the planet. Not in the abstract they don't. Not in the abstract they don't. You know what they're interested in? A clean place to live. Their own habitat. They're worried that some day in the future, they might be personally inconvenienced. Narrow, unenlightened self-interest doesn't impress me.

Besides, there is nothing wrong with the planet. Nothing wrong with the planet. The planet is fine. The PEOPLE are ****ed. Difference. Difference. The planet is fine. Compared to the people, the planet is doing great. Been here four and a half billion years. Did you ever think about the arithmetic? The planet has been here four and a half billion years. We've been here, what, a hundred thousand? Maybe two hundred thousand? And we've only been engaged in heavy industry for a little over two hundred years. Two hundred years versus four and a half billion. And we have the CONCEIT to think that somehow we're a threat? That somehow we're gonna put in jeopardy this beautiful little blue-green ball that's just a-floatin' around the sun?

The planet has been through a lot worse than us. Been through all kinds of things worse than us. Been through earthquakes, volcanoes, plate tectonics, continental drift, solar flares, sun spots, magnetic storms, the magnetic reversal of the poles...hundreds of thousands of years of bombardment by comets and asteroids and meteors, worlwide floods, tidal waves, worldwide fires, erosion, cosmic rays, recurring ice ages...And we think some plastic bags, and some aluminum cans are going to make a difference? The planet...the planet...the planet isn't going anywhere. WE ARE!

We're going away. Pack your sh**, folks. We're going away. And we won't leave much of a trace, either. Thank God for that. Maybe a little styrofoam. Maybe. A little styrofoam. The planet'll be here and we'll be long gone. Just another failed mutation. Just another closed-end biological mistake. An evolutionary cul-de-sac. The planet'll shake us off like a bad case of fleas. A surface nuisance.

You wanna know how the planet's doing? Ask those people at Pompeii, who are frozen into position from volcanic ash, how the planet's doing. You wanna know if the planet's all right, ask those people in Mexico City or Armenia or a hundred other places buried under thousands of tons of earthquake rubble, if they feel like a threat to the planet this week. Or how about those people in Kilowaia, Hawaii, who built their homes right next to an active volcano, and then wonder why they have lava in the living room.

The planet will be here for a long, long, LONG time after we're gone, and it will heal itself, it will cleanse itself, 'cause that's what it does. It's a self-correcting system. The air and the water will recover, the earth will be renewed, and if it's true that plastic is not degradable, well, the planet will simply incorporate plastic into a new pardigm: the earth plus plastic. The earth doesn't share our prejudice towards plastic. Plastic came out of the earth. The earth probably sees plastic as just another one of its children. Could be the only reason the earth allowed us to be spawned from it in the first place. It wanted plastic for itself. Didn't know how to make it. Needed us. Could be the answer to our age-old egocentric philosophical question, "Why are we here?" Plastic...asshole.

So, the plastic is here, our job is done, we can be phased out now. And I think that's begun. Don't you think that's already started? I think, to be fair, the planet sees us as a mild threat. Something to be dealt with. And the planet can defend itself in an organized, collective way, the way a beehive or an ant colony can. A collective defense mechanism. The planet will think of something. What would you do if you were the planet? How would you defend yourself against this troublesome, pesky species? Let's see... Viruses. Viruses might be good. They seem vulnerable to viruses. And, uh...viruses are tricky, always mutating and forming new strains whenever a vaccine is developed. Perhaps, this first virus could be one that compromises the immune system of these creatures. Perhaps a human immunodeficiency virus, making them vulnerable to all sorts of other diseases and infections that might come along. And maybe it could be spread sexually, making them a little reluctant to engage in the act of reproduction.

Well, that's a poetic note. And it's a start. And I can dream, can't I? See I don't worry about the little things: bees, trees, whales, snails. I think we're part of a greater wisdom than we will ever understand. A higher order. Call it what you want. Know what I call it? The Big Electron. The Big Electron...whoooa. Whoooa. Whoooa. It doesn't punish, it doesn't reward, it doesn't judge at all. It just is. And so are we. For a little while.
