lol “global warming caused by god hugging the planet extra hard”... priceless. I think there may be a few more factors, but this idea will certainly raise some eyebrows in the envrionmental camp.

To deal with global warming, the government needs to immediately plant more trees, and stop cutting them down. It is a major problem they need to deal with. The importance of trees has been understated by “scientists” that truly dont understand the relevance of trees. Dont criticize the importance of the concept until you know all the facts. On top of deforestation, we are polluting the environment. Another contributing factor is modern day energy systems rely on explosion rather than implosion, and this generates heat. Every systems need to be more efficient and work on implosion, so they stay cool. The non-profit energy research organization at http://www.universalsymbiosis.org is active in these areas which will help reverse effects of global warming. I suggest everyone also read “Living Energies” by Callum Coats which explains the work of Victor Schauberger and the importance of trees to our planet. Dont rely on information from the authorities as their advisors dont fully understand the life cycle of the planet. We need to push the authorities to develop forest management and sustainability plans, and this will solve at least part of the problem.

The Real Cause of Global Warming
This is not the rocket science Al Gore would like to make it! What the real causes of Global warming? has a simple, uncomplicated solution. Al Gore causes Global Warming. Even if his conclusions had an element of accuracy to them,
genuine people of science always submit a hypothesis, then go about trying to disprove it.
Isaac Newton, who was able to define gravity, set a fine example. People have been working with his theories for hundreds of years without anyone objecting to any findings as long as they are legitimate. To question Al Gores theory of Global Warming is tantamount to blasphemy in many social circles. It has all the trappings of a religion!

Limericks are fun.
Climate change is not.
In a world filled with unsolvable troubles,
We watch news in luxurious bubbles.
Nations are warring,
Politicians are snoring,
Maybe we just need lots of cuddles.
And according to the masters of spin,
Gods helping us from here on in,
But through His affection,
His generous protection,
Were skating on ice far too thin.
It is not factories, or gases, or cars,
Thats inflicting such permanent scars,
In fact its the way,
George Bush saves the day,
As a modern, American Tsar.
Ignoring this strange global trend,
Of saving our world, they defend,
Their Christian ideas,
Keeping civilians in fear,
That for Democracy their lives will end.
As an insightful artist has shown,
This irrational covers been blown.
You should be addressing,
That imaginary blessing,
Wont save you from fire and brimstone.

evilroy should read a little American history as the US have a long tradition of invading and even stealing small countries.
Just off the top of my head:
Not to mention, of course, the conquering of the Indian nations of our own continent.

“World domination”?!?!? Are you freaking kidding me? If there is one thing the U.S. has shown remarkable restraint from, it is the aggressive colonization that up until the founding of the good ol’ U S of A, was standard behavior for powerful nations. Where does this atavistic tripe come from?

LOL. Classic. Even Rumsfeld couldn’t have come up with this.
“Reports that say that something hasn’t happened are always interesting to me, because as we know, there are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns—the ones we don’t know we don’t know.”
