Apathy will cause the next Ice Age

May 14, 2007 4:57pm CST
The world does pass by too quickly. We are stuck with our own daily routines not taking the time to stop and look whats really going on around in the world. To be fair, it is pretty hard to cut back on things we need. Not using a car, a plastic bag and and iPod charger are those things we simply need to do. But step by step we could save the environment, right?

Here's the thing...The earth is still coming out of the last Ice Age, which I assume must have been caused by prehistoric man and those massive stone age factories. Lets not forget the prehistoric manned mission to Mars, where man settled and built more factories in order cause the Global Warming that is simultaneously occurring there now. Of course nobody knows about this because it happened before written history, which is kind of the meaning of prehistoric. It is either believe that scenario, or the one that states that Global Warming and Climate Change are all part of the same naturally occurring cycle of events that the earth routinely goes through, just like the changing of the seasons. It gets cold, goes into an Ice Age and then warms into what is now called Global Warming. It's called that because as the earth comes out of and ice age it naturally gets warmer. It will continue to warm until it gets warm enough to cause the earth to cool again which then would be the beginning of the next ice age. Who can tell how many times this has already happened with out any help from man? The idea that man has any real impact on whether or not there is going to be Global Warming or Climate change is nothing more than a scam that has been perpetrated by Alarmist scientists who do not have the data to even begin to back up their theories. A consensus that man may be responsible means nothing more than the group of them agreed that it "could" be possible. It just as easily might not be possible, and more evidence points to that conclusion than to their "consensus" Of course, their consensus means that the prehistory model in the beginning paragraph is then correct. So what do you think...is it natural, or did Fred Flintstone cause the last Ice Age?

Ice ages are reoccuring trends. Ofcourse, carbon dating has proved that. But over the years the fluctuation of temperatures have been increasing. Due to, voila, global warming. True, an Ice Age will occur again. It's nature, thats how the world restores balance. If it gets too hot, the clouds build up, it rains and cools the surface down again. It's all about balance. But we're supposed to experience an Ice Age every 100,000 years or so. Not every 1000 years. That is what Fred Flintstone caused.

Just where is it written that we are only supposed to have an ice age every 100,000 years? In what book can that be found, and who wrote it? See, this is the problem, people are using guesses and postulating theories and then trying to pass them off as fact, when the truth of the matter is that no one really knows. Global warming and Ice Ages will occur in their own good time, and not necessarily in any arbitrary time period set out by man. Man does not make the rules of nature, man is ruled BY nature. The idea that man has any impact on global warming is a best preposterous. These types of studies are nothing more than guesses, and any scientist will tell you that anything doing with the weather or climate is an inexact science. They deal with trends in the weather, whether or not it is warming or cooling, and any predictions are about as accurate as playing the lottery or betting a horse...it is a crap shoot at best.

Well said. It is time we took a look at what's going on outside the realm of our personal worlds. Apathy is the problem. We could save a lot of things if we could all take a minute to see past our daily lives and vow to do our parts to rectify things. We are the people, it is our world, and we are the only ones who can preserve it for future generations.

I'm glad to see that you share the same view. If only it were easier to get everyone to stop and listen. sigh.

Don't give up hope. I'm willing to be on the human race to wake up...eventually.

Well, that's a big problem for us all. No one wants to stop driving their cars. Well, we should find alternative ways to do things. We could stop using cars and ride bycicles. Accidents would be way less dramatic, I'm pretty sure about that. That would be a big start for us all. Trading cars by bycicles... Yeah, that would be nice.
