Yes, I'm sure about this. Global warming is like the hole in the ozone layer and second hand smoke, a myth. The goverment ussually makes decisions about what to tell people without consulting scientists who speciallize in the matter. Like when they made cars that had really good milage, they didn't consult anyone, it resulted in DEATH. So they had to get rid of the those cars. Carbon Dioxide whould still be increasing even if we didn't have cars or factorys because the human population keeps growing.

So far, the only real justification for the "busted myth" is that that the goverment lies to us. I know that, governments have to lie to people to be effective.

What other evidence do you have? Or can you explain it more clearly, so that I get where you're coming from? In your first post, you talked about Ice Ages. I think you're saying that a new ice age arising from global warming isn't likely.

Blue holes are, according to http://istina.rin.ru/eng/ufo/text/101.html:

"The white, sandy seafloor near the shallow waters of the Bahama Islands occasionally drops away to disappear in a dark blue pool below the transparent waters. Reaching hundreds of feet deep, these pools are called blue holes and are actually subterranean caverns. They were formed around 18,000 years ago when a giant continental icecap removed oceanic waters and lowered the sea level by hundreds of feet. During that era, the Bahama Islands were hills on a large plain. Rainwater was made acidic by tropical vegetation, and seeped into the soil to erode and dissolve limestone bedrock, creating the underground caverns. Some caverns collapsed under the weight of the topsoil, and became they type of sinkholes that occur in the Caribbean area. When the ice melted, the seas rose and flooded the lowlands with water. The sinkholes, now covered by water, became the famous blue holes.

Local folk stories claim the holes are the legendary lair of the lusca, an octopus-like monster that comes out when hungry, churning the waters with its arms and dragging boats under. Although no monsters live beneath the surface, blue holes can capsize boats. The caves trap tidal flow inside their underwater passageways, creating quick currents that create surface turbulence and whirlpools that can suck small vessels to the bottom. Divers are also endangered by strong currents so the holes can only be explored safely twice a day - when the tide and caverns are calm. "

Say about what? Some science question?:

If it's a question of mars, it's all about the money. Whether we could or not is irrelevent, it's if there's government funding for it, or some kind of profit. And you better believe that goverment funding is going into science for mostly military reasons. First science figures something out, then the miltary puts it to use, and then the people get it. Things that private corporations/individuals do with their own money is either geared towards business, or rare in this country [because it's so expensive!]

I like Bush. He's not perfect. But who is? And people who lead large country's make the same number of mistakes we do. Take Henry VIII, Julius Ceasar, Gallienus. They were good leaders but their mistakes are EXTRAVAGATED. Henry VIII with is wives, Julius Ceasar with ambition, and Gallienus with to many enemys in the senate.

And this war is enough, to make anyone want a vacation. But it will be over very soon.

And whoever said that African American won't be able to vote, sometime in the future. I was wondering if you're familliar with George Puffield. This in one of his quotes:
Wilst sun and moon endure, America shall remain a city of refuge for the whole earth, until she, herself, shall play the tyrant, forget her destiny, disgrace her freedom, and provoke her God.

There is a book I read called 'Passage to Pluto'. It's about some astronaouts going on a mission the the planet beyond Pluto, it is called Planet X.


9note: I do not like Henry VIII. But he did write 'What Child is This' and I love that song.)
