A funny thing I hear from time to time is environmental campaigners saying that the evidence of man made climate change is so overwhelming now that George Bush Jnr even believes in it. So, that idiot GWB believes in it so it must be true. Very Happy
That's right--if idiots believe it, it must be true.

But that's easy--it's been getting warmer since the 17th century. The hard question is: what's causing it? And is it bad? (it's not for Greenland, but some people might lose their beach property).

I did say 'man made climate change'.

So, the glacier grew so much that it spread out into the ocean and broke off--i.e., the glaciers are growing too fast now. affraid

What should we do to stop this catastrophic glacier growth? Burn more gas?

I have no idea.

I do know that it would probably be an idea for everyone to cut their C02 emissions. And when I say everyone, I pretty much mean the USA (and China).

So, the plan is to cut CO2 emissions--how will that slow down glaciation?

The IPCC says that cutting CO2 emissions will do exactly the opposite.

And why do you not see the ice island as a reason for rejoicing?

Newfoundland is a scarey place, with scarey creatures you have to watch out for.

This one was cited for illegal soliciting:

I don't much fancy Papua, New Guinea:

***************************************************************************

Man speared by tribesmen in Papua New Guinea
By AOL Travel, Jul 02, 2011



A French man has been attacked with spears by tribesmen as he tried to save his girlfriend from being raped in the rainforests of western Papua New Guinea.

Matthew Scheurich, 28, pulled the spears from his chest and almost bled to death as he and his girlfriend fled for their lives through the thick jungle in the tropical island nation.

His wounds became infected and he is now in hospital in Cairns, Australia.

The attack happened after a tribesman in a remote village in Papua New Guinea took a shine to Mr Scheurich's French girlfriend and decided he wanted to marry her.

Mr Scheurich stepped in to protect the woman, but the tribesman retaliated by spearing him with arrows and hitting him on the head with a rock.

His survival has been dubbed a 'miracle' after the barbs narrowly missed his vital organs and he lost litres of blood.

Mr Scheurich's girlfriend endured a sexual assault and was also bitten, cut, scratched and badly bruised in the fracas.

The couple were only rescued after she set off their emergency locator beacon to raise the alarm, according to reports in the New Zealand Herald.

Mr Scheurich, a graphic designer from Waikato, New Zealand, who now lives in Melbourne, Australia, was in Papua New Guinea visiting his anthropologist girlfriend.

She was there to study the Febi tribe from the North Fly district as part of her research for her doctorate thesis, when one of the tribesman decided he wanted her.

After the attack, the pair managed to escape to the nearby town of Suabi where they were looked after by a local church before the missionary air service evacuated them to Kiunga, a coastal town, for medical treatment.

Dr Josette Docherty, an Australian doctor working there, told the New Zealand Herald Mr Scheurich was prone on a stretcher, in agony and 'deathly pale' when she first saw him.

One arrow had penetrated his ribcage and the wall of his stomach, and stopped just short of his aorta; the other had split a less vital artery.

Dr Docherty gave Mr Scheurich an urgent blood transfusion - including half a litre from her own partner, medical volunteer Allan Mason - but he needed urgent surgery to survive.

After a night in the 25-bed ward, which had only one nurse on duty, Mr Scheurich and his girlfriend flew to the capital, Port Moresby, and then to Cairns Base Hospital, Australia, last Tuesday.

To get to a better vantage point to check up on the ice-melt situation and the lobster situation, I'll be heading up to Newfie Land early tomorrow morning.

There could be no internet for 3 weeks. affraid

It's nothing like that, it's just... emotionally dangerous hehe but anyway now it's too late... monday morning already and I think she (I'm afraid of writing she) only works there on weekends. And anyway she would be working and I wouldn't say anything... I haven't felt anything like this for a looong time and I'm scared, plus I'm a fool.
