"Credible". It's an interesting word.Did some research. Interestingly, enough credible "evidence" can be found to support 1) Global Warming. 2) Global Cooling 3) Global Warming slowing. 4) Global Warming accelerating. 5) Global Warming exacerbated by humans. 6) Global Warming caused by external factors such as solar activity. You pays your money, you takes your pick. Apparently there have been six or seven rather large and rapid temperature perturbations in the history of life on this planet. Not all resulted in mass extinctions nor were they all caused by volcanism.
IMO if we get to the albedo tipping point we will lose our civilization, and if we tip the clathrates we'll be lucky not to go extinct. Look on the bright side. You too can play the game.
Oh. Well that's it then. I wonder how feasible commerce is going to be when everyone invades you.F4Jock said:someday it may happen but for now it is not commercially feasible in an industrialized country and / or one located in a geographically unsympathetic area.
Imagine being a passenger on a boat above Niagara falls which is being drawn toward the falls at an ever-accelerating rate. How long do you wait before you act? Is the speed of the water already faster than the top speed of your boat? If it is, you can relax.
