BEWARE of the NITROGEN!

The CO2 man made global warming scare is becoming debunked. To counter this frightful trend we now have a new thing to worry about. NITROGEN! Man is releasing too much nitrogen in too many wrong places. WE ALL ARE GOING TO DIE! Well, maybe not right away, but surely, we all will die sooner or later. Read more about this latest man made earth-planet killing attrocity perpetrated by us all at this url. http://www.mercurynews.com/search/ci_6605545?nclick_check=1 To be fair, it is true that agricultural chemicals are putting nitrogen into streams and lakes where it should not be and it is doing harm to the ecololgy. This does need to be stopped. On the other hand, 79% of the earth's atmosphere is nitrogen. It is essential to life and our survival. While there is a problem, and it is true that "WE ALL ARE GOING TO DIE!", it is not going to be nitrogen that does it. That's what I have to say about the latest attempt to scare us all to death. What do you say?

global warning - global warning also can obviously be seen at the mountain level.
The problem is the ecology's effects are happening thru out the world and not only just for one country. To slow down the rate of the inclining defects can be taken into accounts as measurable. But to stop or halt would be impossible as the related industry keep on producing day-to-day. So the texts of "prevention is better than cure" will be no longer usable in future. Anyway thank for providing that prolific informations and good points for discussion on myLot. Be best for all. Thank you very much. Me, Michael.

While ending pollution is always a good thing...this constant casting about by the scientists in order to find something else to raise alarms about is getting old. It just goes to show that there is such a thing as having too much education and too much time on your hands...either that or some people can't handle all that knowledge and just go nuts. Either way it demonstrates that too many people are paying attention to too many nutballs who view Chicken Little as their hero. I suggest that these poor misguided crazy people be given something useful to do, such as digging ditches...that way their overstressed intellect won't be coming up with all these harebrained ideas about man is destroying the world. The more these scientists talk, the more convincing it is that they don't have a clue. Yet there are people who are actually silly enough to not only listen to them, but actually believe the stupid things that they say.

"It just goes to show that there is such a thing as having too much education and too much time on your hands." Long story short: You are right. Short story long: I once wanted to be an astronomer and also an anthropologist. In the case of astronomy I found there were only 800 jobs in the entire USA for astronomers. There were 800 graduate degrees in astronomy granted every year. Hence, becoming an astronomer is not a wise career choice. Anthropology is not quite as bad, but it is a similar situation. There are far too many PH.d. graduates compared to the number of jobs. What do you bet that a similar situation exists in almost all the sciences? Could this explain the amount of "chicken little" scenarios these people seem to uncover? Could they just be desparate to create work for themselves? Yes, it could be.

Uh huh... maybe a bit over the top. Granted nitrogen runoff and buildup pollution is terrible, but most jurisidictions and nations already have clauses/acts, what have you, to get people to not mindlessly mishandle nitrogen products/bi-products in natural or sensitive areas. Other than that, nitrogen is still going to be the top element in the atmosphere, and humanity really won't be changing that one any time soon. I don't see humanity dying from it anytime soon either. /facepalm.
