Gen'l Knight;4273636...Frankly, I think there are groups of folks that would love it, especially if the USA bit the financial dust.

Dead, solid perfect - that's the whole point of the global warming "crisis".

Well we can cool the earth if we want :) Its all bollox tbh we had gobal cooling in the 70/80's now we have gobal warning in the 90/00's. Its just all bollox. What I think is happening is we are entering a period of increased solar activity whichs means "WE ARE FUCKED" so enjoy the ride because we cant stop this even if we tried.

Archmage Cleps;4273120Not necessarily. For example, the EU and US both have the economic capacity necessary to spend plenty on this and still have lots leftover, if only the US would pull out of Iraq and concentrate on itself, instead of seeing itself as the world police.

Even if the probability of global warming were 1/1000000 I would still go with the first one.

No matter how you phrase that I can't see that a war in a middle-east country as being as important as this, no matter the probability of it occurring.

And how many other catastrophic events have a 1/1000000 chance of happening? Meteor hit for example. Should we sink all of our resources into planning for every possible situation all of the time so we can be 100% ready for everything? Or should we say let the US and Australia tackle global warming, the UK and China can handle the meteor thing, and Chile and Luxembourg can worry about the possible zombie apocalypse.

As for the Middle East, many would argue that those priorities are a bit more pressing than a possible and I stress possible one degree rise in global temperatures over the next 100 years. If you don't agree, fine, but I would imagine that 3,000 or so folks on 9/11 would have preferred focusing on the issue of potential terrorist attacks vs potential temperature increases.

Well, to be fair, the Large Hadron Collider has a similar chance of producing a micro-black hole. It wouldn't destroy us or anything, but it might be fun to watch.

So if so many events have a one in a million chance of happening, that adds up to a relatively large probability of at least one of them happening in any given year. Why haven't they?

If you don't agree, fine, but I would imagine that 3,000 or so folks on 9/11 would have preferred focusing on the issue of potential terrorist attacks vs potential temperature increases.

Yeah, a multi-trillion dollar war to get two men? And we still haven't found one of them, yet. What a success!

but I would imagine that 3,000 or so folks on 9/11 would have preferred focusing on the issue of potential terrorist attacks vs potential temperature increases.

They're dead. They've been dead for six and a half years. Right now I could not care less what they think.

Dudes... WTF is wrong with you guys?!?!? I waited all day to see someone post the news of that ice shelf that collapsed yesterday in Antarctica. Im really disappointed no one posted up a good old fashioned "nyah nyah"!!! It was interesting. I saw a little read about it and the article was written very very badly, I thought we'd have a good time doing some more rabble rousing with it. By last night it was front web page news. Then in the morning... nothing. Hardly any mention about it anywhere. You guys should go to box, 2 minutes... feel shame.

I'm not that petty. But it is sad that such a large section of the ice shelf hung (or is it still hanging?) On a corridor of ice barely six kilometers thick.

If you believe that the Global War on Terror is about finding two men, then you need to do a little more reading. You know, we never found Hitler. I guess WWII was a failure then, right?

Well if terrorists ever kill 3,000+ New Zealanders, we'll see if you feel the same way.

Oh, yeah, I guess I forgot the oil as well.

If it was about the oil, we wouldn't have to be paying 4 bucks a gallon....
