Climate Change impending on us?
« on: April 30, 2007, 10:07:33 am »

recently NASA have sent a space craft to monitor clouds in space above the earths polar caps:

http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/aim/index.html

Many believe this to be signs of a climate change beginning to happen. These clouds were first spotted in the 1880's, but in the last few years, mainly the last 5-6 years, the clouds have grown far faster than over the last century. What do you guys think? I mean me ive always thought global warming is happenin too fast if you look at the current graphs for the climate if we continue at this rate, and lets face it we are emmitting CFC's faster every year.

Imagine Earth in 50 years...

What do you guys think?

1. I don't think anything we do can change it, but that's just me being pessimistic

2.Why is this in Spore General?

A wise Surface to Air Missile once said about marrying 9 year olds in Saudi Arabia "Its pretty hard to tell if a 9 year old is going to be hot when she grows up, kids change a lot, usually, seems like a bad system. That cute little nine year old you married could end being a fat, zitty teenager."

If one is playing the viola, does that mean that one is violating?
HAHAHAha...haha...hehe...he... ok it wasn't that funny.

But on a more serious note, ok, so what? I already have a million different pieces of evidence that support global warming anyways.

but then again, it is something to talk about...

Yeah, but the question is can it happen in the natual course of civilization? Will it happen without a heat-ray?

I think gobal warming is unavoidable. after all, the earth hs to die, right? nothing lasts forever. just like them asteroids, i heard that one big one is on its way to earth right now,( landing sometime in 2029 or something.) imagine earth is on a highway, going 10000 mp/h something and th there is an asteroid entering the driving lane right in front of earth, bam!

everybody dies.

I'm hoping that by civ stage you'l be able to seriously alter the shape of your planet.

Like, terraforming veichals, like we have diggers and such, so that you can level out ground for building. Or being able to blow crators in the ground with heavy explosives... Maybe have tools like volcanoe drills which take alot longer to invent in civ than ufo, but if you've invented it in civ it's almost instantly available in the UFO... Then have engines and factories and power stations produce greenhouse gasses, and the more 'evolved' they are, the less they produce.

Will said he wanted to teach about global warming and effects of humans on the planet. That'd work quite dandy.
