    given the consequences of failure, is it ok to jest about it?

    lol
    I should have asked

    Do you agree with wayne's hero - David Suzuki - that politicians who don't act responsibly on CO2 reduction should be held legally responsible ...

    and that goes for posters on chatrooms as well ;)

    Most definitely. Its a joke. Poor science, poor lacklustre proponents and now poor old kev07 will bore us all the more about it.

    of course it is!

    I'd hate to live in a world where people can't make fun of a theory about the ultimate destruction of the world as we know it.

    Nice work Sam. Keep the cheesy one liners coming:D

    Considering it has about as much validity at the flying spagetti monster, it would be wrong to not make fun of it.

    On the other hand, taking it seriously is resulting in psychosis, as detailed on the other thread.

    new poll out today that 5% of aussies believe we should ignore GW -
    sad reflection of the intelligence and/or concern for the planet around here that so many agree with the 5% (serious) minority ;)

    There is only one sad reflection around here... the single person who voted no.

    Reflect on that. ;)

    that's not very funny 2020. I like rivers. Why laugh at one being destroyed? I thought you wanted to save the planet, not laugh at it's destruction:(

    Now here's some good global warming humour. Look out for this in the next lefty scare campaign:)

    Does this not illustrate my enduring point? GW is the wrong target. general environmental malaise is what we need to be targeting.

    Reduced rainfall in the Murray-Darling basin could be due to any number of factors, but it is the taxing of the Murray via irrigation etc which is endangering it.

    Once again, selective use of facts exposes intellectual fraud and moral bankruptcy of the AGW agenda.

    on your deathbeds gentlemen , please reflect on the fact that you were not prepared to give the planet the benefit of the doubt.

    As for pretending you're a greenie, and still protesting against action on GW

    now there's the best joke I've heard all year ;)

    Hahaha! I am impervious to your puerile barbs. I sleep well at night having done my bit. :):):)

    You on the other hand, have not the courage of your incorrect convictions and live a lie; shoving AGW propaganda down people's throats while stomping all over the earth with an enormous carbon footprint with your profession.

    I believe it is called cognitive dissonance and the reason your sense of humour is both inappropriate and conflicted.

    Cheers :)

    The environmental movement argues that we should challenge and question practically everything.

    Except them.

    This sort of thinking is dangerous. VERY dangerous if history is any guide.

    Worth noting too that the whole "only authority above god" thing was what gave birth to the environmental movement as a mainstream political force in the first place. Now they're doing exactly what they once opposed - arguing for blind acceptance on the grounds that "this must not fail". All those words sound very familiar...

    Don't confuse environmentalist / sustainability with greenie / conservationist. The two are very different - even prominent conservationist David Bellamy publicly argues that climate change isn't happening in line with the theories. :2twocents

    Sigh. Ah, yes, and he isn't even in full flight yet.
    All sense of reason and perspective seems to have been lost. Everything is Garnaut. Even Brendan Nelson is making relative sense.
