I had to walk home in -21 degree weather all this week, so I welcome global warming whole-heartedly

@ dimus3001: I won't even bother with that post, you don't even know what liberal and conservative is.
and once again, I'm talking of global warming strictly from the scientific point, if you want include politics on this then go ahead and keep missing the point.

why can't they just build something like a big air purifier and put squadrons in the atmosphere and dispose of the bad material properly?

It seems while we were sleeping on Feb. 2nd, there was a major meeting happening in France to speak about this very topic...

I saw in CNN 2 days ago that another country will be wiped off the map in the next few years cos it will be covered by water as the sea level increases.

What Gore presented might have been radical, however, if that weren't the case it would not have provoke people to take action or even take the climate change issue seriously. Keeping in line with the questions Mauz posed, I don't believe that ethanol (from corn) will be an energy efficient alternative to fuel. It will take more energy ( by that i mean fuel) to grow corn, process them and transport the ethanol, than the ethanol will provide. However, using the biowaste might prove to be more efficient. I live near campus, so biking is my way of transportation. The use of alternative energy resources varies geographically. At present, the use of solar voltiac panels might be efficient for that one home, however, it won't be sufficient for national use...well, not at the moment at least. So believe it or not, many countries are focusing on nuclear energy at the moment.
So, what do you guys think?

^^ Exactly, on the other hand sugar cane ethanol is 3 times more efficient than corn ethanol....>_< using corn ethanol is so dumb, it takes more input energy to process it

I would love to see the United States have an efficient public transportation like they do in Japan and Europe, but that seems unrealistic at the moment.

the sad thing is that to really make a difference everyone in the world would have to stop polluting & i don't see that happening. global warming will continue none the less no matter how hard we try because there will always be someone polluting.

In my personal opinion I think that global warming is serious problem. I also think that we need to do everything we can to avoid a harsher future.
