    Amen. I'm glad to see that there are people on this board who think and do research for themselves and see what a joke Algore along with his idiotic "crusade".

    AMEN...:D

    Here's one that's more diver related.

    Estimates of water rise in the last 100 years are 4 to 8 inches.

    http://www.nrdc.org/globalWarming/fcons.asp

    To make the math easier, let's say the water level has risen 1 foot during the last 100 years. The ruins of this city are 140 feet below water level. That means that the water level over this underwater city rose 139 feet over the previous 9400 years. In 94 centuries the water level rose 139, or 1.478723404255319148936170212766 feet per century, average. That's 94 into 139. Since we don't have statistics going that far back, we can only use averages. If you go back to the 8 inch, that's 2/3 of one foot or .66 feet. So, water levels have risen .66 feet in the last century but they rose an average of 1.47 feet per century in the 9400 years previous. Somehow, global warming doesn't seem to be something that can be cured by a worldwide concert. Just my .02

    Global Warming is a great thing.

    Eventually it will kill off the Earth's parasites !!!!

    If anyone hasn't noticed from the Live earth concert disasters (major duds), the GW movement has "jumped the shark"... like the drive for the US to "go metric" in the 70s (or we would face economic ruin!) the public sees this for what it is (an attempt to put a ball- and-chain on the American economy so that we would play "fair"). GW advocates can cry and whine, the movement is in its final throes here, going the way of leisure suits and pet rocks. Right or wrong, the American public and even the press are "moving on"...

    by the way, weren't we supposed to have a dozen catastrophic hurricanes since katrina, last year and this year? In fact, we have had none...the computer modellers were wrong again.

    Aslo, in case anyone hasn't noticed:

    1) it's not global warming anymore, it's climate change (encompasses everything and it CAN't be wrong, the climate always changes)

    2) CO2 and cars are not really the culprits, it is now cow flatulence (the CO2 models continue to fall apart, so we need to invoke methane and, besides, this gets PETA in on the crusade)

    Of course, Europe continues to drink Al Gore's koolaid. Let them...it will only allow us to steamroller them even flatter economically

    The leaders of the global warming/climate change movement are such hypocrits that the average joes have stopped listening.(Gore,David,Crow) etc use more energy in a month then most of us use in a year but they have the audacity and nerve to preach that we should use one sheet of toilet paper etc
