Fight Global Warming from Your Desktop - Page 4

post #31 of 82
If any of you were around in the 60s, you know the real truth. If there was any real damage done to our environment that would have caused a climate change, it was done in the past and there isn't a damn thing we can do about it that hasn't already been done.

We used to live about 30 miles from Cleveland, Ohio and the black cloud of pollution stretched around the city for about 40 miles. The closer you got to the center of town, the darker it got. You couldn't hardly breath the air and you certainly never saw the sunlight through the awful pollution. The smokestacks were constantly pumping/billowing out dark smoke, and yellow smoke and grey smoke. The beaches on Lake Erie were closed with signs posted that it was unsafe to swim. Dead fish lined the edge of the lake where sandy beaches used to be. The water in the Cuyahoga River was orange and green with sludge and chemicals. The tour boats stopped running and the fishing industry came to a halt.

This is what the river looked like when it caught on fire when it was terribly polluted.

This is what you can do there 40 years later.

I supppose I could continue and show you pictures of the smog cloud 40 years ago and the clear sky now, but those of you who are looking for a way to control people with your fears of global warming, will just ignore it and claim I am nutz.

For those of us who are old enough to know reality, we know that the EPA regulations of the 70s are what turned around an awful situation and restored our air and lakes and streams to where they should be. Those who are too young to know the truth, should just listen and learn. Climate change is a normal fact of life on earth. Yes, maybe our sins of the past hurt the environment. But, nothing we are doing now even compares to the way things used to be. And there is certainly nothing to gain by fear mongering and trying to make people think the world will end if they drive their SUV instead of a bicycle. Reality is it just doesn't matter.

Uh, every time you shut down and start back up, it shortens the life of your PSU. I need my PSU. Plus I like the lights in my case as a night light. ^_^

Global Warming won't do anything by the time I die except make weather warmer, and I have no problem with that.

Yea, i know the sentiment. I looked at some projected maps for 2050, and all i see is that my house gets that much closer to waterfront .

Just for starting this thread.. I am throwing on Ortho's, and yea thats right, I am leaving my monitor on while I do it!
youre obviously incredibly stupid. sure if you alone leave it on it wont really make a difference. but if EVERYONE thinks the same as you then it WILL make a difference. Thats the point of the whole "1 vote can make a difference" becuase if EVERYONE believes their vote will make a difference then EVERYONE will vote... see?

hahah, i was kinda just kidding i mean, i dont believe that global warming is anything more than changes/patterns in the earths climate. that said, if the program is non buggy and i ever need to penny pinch, I know i can save some $ on my energy bill. so rep+ to you hereonyourown.
