I'm not a believer in global warming. I am aware of a climate malfunction that is occurring. I call it a malfunction only because it won't end up working out so well for us, not to mean that it hasn't happened already on numerous occasions and then reversed - whether through Ice Ages or other catastrophic events like asteroid strikes or what have you. It is the desertification of our lands. There seems to be an increasing amount of it going on, but it is not new nor is it caused solely by mankind. What I find interesting about it is ways we are finding to reverse it. Hybrid cars? Changing lightbulbs? No. Cattle. Or any ruminant, for that matter. Rotational grazing of ruminant animals is proving to be very effective in reversing desertification. I bring this up so that you can feel good the next time you bite into a good steak, because you are perhaps being very instrumental in saving thousands of lives by regenerating the soils that have been subjected to desertification. Oversimplified: Cow+feed=manure=soil enhancement. Don't let the vegans get you down.

Beef. It's what's for dinner and saving the planet faster than Cap and Trade.

Cattle? Are you mad? Isn't that one of the reasons for GW in the first place?

I didn't read half of the posts. You are all wrong. I will once again post this picture to illustrate the cause of global warming once and for all.

There is a really good book called A Short History of Nearly Everything, written by Bryson and also available as an audiobook for those of us that spend long hours in equipment, that starts from the Big Bang Theory and works it's way forward. It is very well written and amusing, informative both in terms of science and history, and gives you an idea of what has already happened to our planet without little humans causing or curing anything. It is about what we know, what we think we know, and how we came to know what we think we know. It originally got my attention because it claimed that the most dangerous place on the planet to live is.... Wyoming. (And that's not because of the cows!)

According to the scientists he interviewed, the earth is 6,000 years overdue for a catastrophic event, considering its history.

I think George Carlin said it best.
