Penguin Unit;3832073 Most knowledgable scientists reject it.

Who are knowledgable scientists, and who amongst them reject it?

Sure, most will say they "agree", but that's only because if they deny it, they will be shunned by their colleagues and rejected by many as a true scientist.

Which scientists are in this situation, and what quotes and proofs do you bring to support such a weasel worded statement?

According to your wording, you make it seem as if more than 75% (most scientists reject it, and most others don't talk about it) of scientists, of all fields of study, disagree with global warming. If that were the case, I doubt scientists opposing global warming would be shunned by their colleagues.

Penguin Unit;3832073Two things.

1. I don't believe in Evolution. I actually read the facts that have been proven. Darwin lacked mathematical skill, and thus could not calculate to see if his theory was correct. That's off topic, though. 2. I don't believe in Global Warming in the way they make it out. If there is any "warming", we definitely can't stop one bit of it. And most knowledgeable scientists reject it. Sure, most will say they "agree", but that's only because if they deny it, they will be shunned by their colleagues and rejected by many as a true scientist. Sir your truly brainwashed, but aren’t we all you just don’t want realize the truth . The future we think of is flying cars, Robots, No war but it’s all a different story in my eyes. I see a planet racked and savaged with war, because lets face it, there will be another World War. Countries will be destroyed and be forgotten, only too the text books will they be remembered. Kids will be questioning why we did such stupid things. We will fight for fuel and politics; will make us go to war because they didn’t agree with us. Terrorists will bomb us daily and the governments will keep us on ID cards, CCTV will watch are every foot step, Free speech and rights will become a long forgotten memory we will become numbers and cultures will be destroyed with mass immigration, the worlds seas will rise drowning the world and then, then will we see a new generation. One with peace, because we won’t be able too destroy each other with guns and bombs, because we will forget how to make them. We will go back to swords and spears; it will then start all over again.

Octovon;3831950Well for one, the northern seas will melt, opening up the Northwest Passage, along with a much shorter sea route from Europe to West Coast North America and Asia. Considering the potential oil and natural gas resources up there, the countries that currently have access to the Arctic Ocean (Russia, US, Canada, Denmark, Norway, etc) may last a little longer with our fossil fuels, or exporting it at high prices, a good thing for Canada in my mind. Resource-parched nations, will be increasingly hostile or belligerent towards one-another in securing the few remaining fossil fuels (I don't see renewable energy coming over night, nor spreading around the world any quicker). Wars will become more and more expensive, perhaps leaving conflicts to be fought by PMC's and other private armies (à la MGS4 and Richard Morgan's Broken Angels). Economies of non-resource rich nations will tumble. Desertification will continue to slowly, but surely enlarge the Sahara to greater extents.

What about Britain, There's oil all in the north of the north sea, and we have some of it. We're 100s of miles closer to the north pole than you.

On the fact of Global warning. Were still cming out of the ice age, and scientists have said that the amount of c02 in the air is very little. The world has been warming up and cooling down for millions of years. It's a natural cycle. What US, Australia, Canada, China, and some of the europeans countrys have to reduce there carbon emitions by at least 25% NOW!. Man is just slightly helping the warming of the earth. Civilisation won't collapse, were humans, we survive. As for a world war, that could be possible, but I hope nobody uses nukes, because than you've got the end of the earth. So :beer:and:bananal: while you can chaps.

Uh... The magnetic north pole is currently in Canada, and the north pole itself is is about 2800km closer to Canada than Britain. If you were thinking he was from the USA, then theres Alaska ;)

Disturbing Sam;3832061Why is every one so damned pesimistic, just because things look bad doesn't mean it's gonna get worse, If we survived for 1,000,000 years I don't a bit of global warming is gonna stop us.

Agreed. And on another note, I ask that you don't go off topic. This is why I normally don't create threads here, things usually go AWOL for some political reason.

Yes Global Warming may cause a problem. So what? That's what you see in the future and is your opinion, and while it is what I have asked for, it isn't necessarily correct. Pull your head out of your ass and move on in life. Yes oil will run out, we know that. Read my topic sentence again:

So what do you think we will see in the future? Whether it be a decade, century, or even a millennium away, explain your theories or ideas. Although, for the Pub's sake, I ask that you keep them sensible nothing too craptastic.

Well, I have 3 visions of the future.

1) Man has colonized a few more planets, and they are huge awesome/terrible highly-polluted factory-cities that spread across the whole surface of the planet(s) and stuff like that.

2) Same old planet. Earth. Now a barren wasteland contaminated by fields of radiation, left from the fallout/nuclear holocaust. Mad Max style thing.

3) Man has surpassed their current knowledge of machines and technology by far, huge cities of glossy white with calm waterfalls.. Pure white waters 'till the eye can see. Man-made islands of urban towns. Stylish-modern cars that hover just above the ground.. People wearing White clothing, flying things including fast transports, advertising stuff, or Hostels.

I had a dream about the 3rd. Brilliance.

I would stick out like a saw thumb then :). Well the way Scientists are going at the moment we may people able to do things simmerler, change weather, new fuels that dont harm the planet, built more islands. We only use 5% of our brain, Eistein used 7% or somthing like that. So if we could find a way to unlock the rest of the brain maybe we could do things like that.

The future is bleak, and as the years go by, you'll understand why.
