    Default Speaking of Global Warming

    From Non Sequitur:

    Q - How did global warming get started, Daddy?
    A - Daylight Saving Time

    Q - Wait What?
    A - Well, as we all know, that's when winter is over......& now that Daylight Savings time starts earlier, & ends later, Spring & Summer last longer, which causes Global Warming.

    Hmmm....OK... that makes sense, Thanks!

    You're Welcome !

    Sort of like politicians passing more laws for background checks before buying a gun... (To keep them out of "criminals" hands). What criminal is going to go to a gun store and fill out a federal form and say please do a background check on me?

    Yep old Al Gore made a fortune convincing idiots about global warming. He has forecast doom to the planet but failed to tell us that there has been global warming since the Ice Age. He reminds me of the Little Red Hen running around proclaiming the sky is falling!

    Just looked at our local weather report. Monday night, May 11, a low of 33 deg is expected and "patchy frost". I put my tomato plants out this week figuring there would be no chance of frost in May in PA.

    I watched a TED video where Bill Gates analyzes the possible solutions for global warming.

    We don't need a solution for non exsistant issue. It's called time. We are in a cooling period now. Man cannot control the atmosphere no matter how hard he may try.

    I don't necessarily disagree. I thought the video was interesting for my own assorted particular reasons. For one, I found it is interesting what Bill Gates does or thinks. He either believes in global warming or was pretending to believe in global warming. I wouldn't bet money either way. I am the ultimate skeptic.

    Would you care to provide some factual support for the statement "We are in a cooling period"?

    Regarding your statement on the human's ability to influence the atmosphere could you please explain what happened to the ozone layer prior to abolishing the use of CFCs and the acid rain problem that was mitigated by a market-based cap and trade program supported by what then were known as "Republicans".

    CO2 levels are now at their highest level in many many thousands of years regards,
