WinMatrix Debate #3 - Global Warming, which is the main cause?
Posted 23 May 2009 - 11:57 AM
its happened a long time ago, carbon in the air increased and ice age happened...and now again, carbon is increasing steadily
youll be frozen soon mammoth

Just like the volcanoes cool the atmosphere when they throw sulfur dioxide gas in the air, we can achieve the same effect by increasing the sulfur's dioxide percentage in airplanes' fuel, for example.
But still, I agree with Afzal
its just the weather cycle

Watch The Inconvenient Truth, its pretty interesting.

I was going to look at the second site seriously until I saw the bald eagle on the logo xD I haven't been this amused in ages thanks for that.
Here's something else...
CO2 emissions blue = highest.

The main global warming gas is water vapor.
The amount of carbon dioxide presently in the atmosphere is
very low by geological standards.
Life on Earth would not exist as we know it without CO2. (There was a time in the geological past when all life used CO2 and oxygen was a poisonous pollutant!)
Even global warming alarmists grudgingly agree the the Earth has been in a period of cooling for the last several years and is likely to remain in this cooling trend for the next few decades.
No one has answered the question of why the current temperature was decided upon as the optimum temperature for Earth.
It has been both much warmer and much colder historically. The Dark Ages happened during a time of cooling, the Renaissance happened during a period of warming.
Species diversity is greatest at the lowest latitudes. (Near the Equator.) Most life flourishes in warmer climates.
Laws that attempt to curb warming by raising taxes on energy will do little or nothing to affect climate, they are merely another tax designed to pay for social programs.

global warming kills species, increases sea levels and reduce human activities
burning fossil fuels causes soot and carbon monoxide, releases toxic and noxious gases (theyre different) and can cause irregular balances in seas, and in building's structural strengths (acid rain)
habitat destruction cause species to die abruptly, can cause islandization (isolating species to a patch of land because of highways and roads) or whatsoever reducing diversity which can also bring down vital food webs and mutualisms.
comsumerist system causes tremendous amounts of reusable resources and increases global warming, habitat destruction and energy consumption proportionally.
careless human mind started the consumerist systems, habitat destruction, fossil fuel burning and global warming. It's all from the root.

We had 6 iceages. One of them is so tremendous, that it took a very large volcano to stop it. As you can see here is 4 ice ages (i do not want to draw them all). There is the wast ice age is when people are starting to create towns and cities. The suddenly two hikes are the agricultural bursts thing. The tech graph isn't really serious. Anyway as algore show the graph with a strangely tall data, the CO2 levels are going extremely high, and past the "we die in this line" is where the humans will probably not be able to live in earth again.
About the water is the greatest contributor of Gw, the other side of this is global warming causes the water to evaporate, causing even more global warming. Global warming also as the Day after Tommorow movie shows will probably trigger ice age, as the graph suggests in those sudden drops

warming of earth surface
if it is related to computers
then stop using computers sucking too much of power
Stop using os needing lot of resources
