There's a big difference between poisoning the environment and believing man can affect climate, and it's insulting when 'activists' try to draw a parallel.

And jwomack -- your post made me LOL!

Pounding the Global Warming issue to people that have RVs is like preaching to the choir. By our very nature and by necessity we concerve our resources. I for one get tired of the radical do gooders spouting their holier than thou rhetoric. A wonderful example of this nonsense is Al Gore. He wants us all to downsize to save the planet while he sits in his 15,000 square foot house using enough resouces' for ten families. We all do the best we can while still enjoying life. Are you willing to get rid of your 39 foot gas RV and get a van conversion. Probably not. So we all do the best we can and that is all that can be asked.

In the 1700s (ISTR) the Vikings (nation not football team) were sailing into and out of the north polar sea with planned regularity. Now to my knowledge there were no automobiles, no airplanes and no factories back then so what caused that global warming cycle and why did out beloved Polar Bears manage to survive that warming but will perish in this one.

All this Gorebull stuff is a direct result of attempting to con money out of unsuspecting people and politicians. Scientific debate is NEVER over, no matter what these charlatans claim. Hell they is still ongoing controversy over some of Einsteins theories and I hope none of you class Al Gore in this august category.

Listen to the rabbit. The pancake is coded.

An open mind to all view points is more helpful to all. A closed mind and engaging in personal attacks like calling people environmental terrorist or nazis, Gorebull etc etc to attack those with a different view does nothing but spread hate, intolerance and violence (e.g., recent events and cross hairs etc.) Yes I do the best I can even though I have a 39 ft gasser getting 7/7.5 but towing a toad that gets 40-45 on hwy. I just try to keep an open mind and try to truly understand the arguements either way. Yes the science is somewhat uncertain but they said that earlier on about smoking, smog etc. etc. The vikings were able to live in Greenland before the little ice age (approx 1300 to early 1800s) (per History channel) but that was a normal fluctuation in the weather trends. The current climate change worry is that mans actions are causing changes outside of the normal natural fluctuations and will that throw us permanently or more significantly in one or the other direction than normal.

Many people in the U.S.A. and Canada are reducing their "footprint". Unless the rest of the world co-operates our efforts are futile, and are taken advantage of by China and other rapidly expanding countries.

After the film "An Inconvenient Truth" emerged an e-mail began to be circulated comparing Gore's home to GWB's home that was astonishing.

You may read it for yourselves here.

All I know is that if I see another picture of a polar bear stranded on a ice floe, I'm gonna puke.
I work at a school and you would not believe the indoctrination of these kids with the "climate change" "problem". Apparently we're all supposed to stay home and freeze in the dark to save the polar bears from being stranded on ice floes.
It IS all about money, and funding.
Sorry, end of rant.

We've had 3 snows in the last month. Global warming is bogus.

One of the most humorous broadcast I've seen about Global Warming was NBC's story of the British girl hiking the North Pole to investigate the disappearance of the penguins. They even showed a clip of two penguins stranded on an ice flow to prove how the ice on the North Pole is melting and floating off.

Obviously they never heard the third grade riddle of 'why polar bears don't eat penquins' of course the reason is there are no penguins on the North Pole.

Is that why the penguins are in the South Pole? They don't have Polar Bears in South pole. What a relationship that is.

Antarctica and the Antarctic Peninsula are home to many if not most of the world’s penguins.

You can also find penguins on the coastal areas of the Galapagos Islands, South America, southern Africa, New Zealand and Australia.

But you will not encounter any Polar Bears in these locations.

Yuppers, the South Global Warming hit down there eons ago and the Polar Bears all died off.

It was an unknown fact for a good number of years until someone found evidence of all the cars, trucks and factories the aliens carted off to keep us from being suspect of their activities.
