FUCK Al Gore. Give me a break. It's funny how the the global warming denying exists in places where people are least directly effected by it. It's not a coincidence, George. Science doesn't matter. Of course. Who wants to bother talking about "bacteria" and other dangerous results of global warming? A bunch of squishy crap in the ocean? What else is new!
I'm not trying to convert anyone. This isn't a religion. I simply said that this issue is old and even our ancestors understood that our place in the world should be not to destroy/change it fundamentally, which we have.
If you are agnostic as you say, that is fine. But it's not a metaphysical issue like God or Jesus - there is actual evidence of this, and it is rapidly approaching (rapid, if you consider the earth's evolution on the billions of years scale. the change is that fast) the point when even the midwest will see the results.
I love MV's chats with his wife. I thought it was a great opening except for the guy who said "where's da moosic". I had to log off to finish some reading, but nice job MV!
