Your global warming Earth-flooding, polar bear killing rapture.

You mean the one with overwhelming scientific evidence?

Um.. no...

The place won't completely 'Noah' type flood. But if you currently live 'At' sea level... well... wear waders or such, 'cause that is going to change. (Look up how many times the Thames barrier has been used to STOP flooding of greater London over the past amount of years.)

If the environment said polar bears lives in changes enough and quickly enough... They will die out in the wild... (Since Zoo's all use lots of controls in an enclosed [Reasonably] artificial environment. We'll still have them in captivity...So there's that.)

As for the other tone of your posts... please show the negative/countering scientific information you have.

Much cheers to all.

Just read an article today about Louisiana. It's no longer the "L" shape because much of it is underwater.

I will see if I can find the link,

Edit: found it. Check the photo at the beginning of the article

There are plenty up here, too.

Yes! I totally agree with this.

And more:

To come up to par on climate change depends upon so many things and conditions: education (education/reading, economics (lower classes live with greater concerns like food, shelter and clothing), and capitalism is not supportive of change in a consumer culture and in America we are a nation of individualists (acting on climate change requires one boat--metaphor).

In American culture all of the above is relevant to caring and doing.

Really though, America would rather China take on the burden.

And what about China and all other countries coming out of the third world. They want things, lots and lots of things.

And lets face it, doing something about climate change requires action--radical cutting back and a new world ideology. And we are only just beginning to talk, that is, to define climate change.

Maybe Ken Ham can help clear up the confusion about climate change.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

If the population as a whole would accept that global pollution is a problem then they would be on the hook to fix it. As long as the refuse to accept the fact that it is a problem they can merrily carry on doing as they please.

"I love Cleveland. The weather is just terrible there - too cold. All we want to know in Cleveland is where the hell’s all that global warming we’ve been hearing so much about. That’s all they ever do in the winter, stand outside with an aerosol can. >ssst< That’s right. Fuck the grandkids. I’m cold now."
