Ehm, you're a couple of decades late with that observation Iron Horse. Climate Change has pretty much always been the correct term in academic circles.

Because "warming" is a misnomer-some areas will suffer a decrease in temp, more snow, etc.-more erratic temps and extreme weather. Where I live we have had a very cold and snowy winter, as bad if not worse than last winter. So maybe climate change is a more accurate term.

It's hard to believe, but the OP may have been topped by the insinuation that climate change is a phrase that is merely a few weeks old.

Doesn't the iron horse live the midwest US? We're always twenty years later than everyone else here.

He referred to something "here in South Carolina" not long ago so I assume that's where he lives.

That's OK, all but a few narrow zones of the US are usually 20 years behind on stuff like this anyway.

The earth has been around since long before humans or any life form came around. And before we even came to this planet it had already gone through an ice age. Did we cause that shit? No, we did not.

It's too bad you hardly participate in threads, other than the occasional drive by post, I think you would benefit quite a bit... for example you would know what you posted above to be completely false.

Yes, thanks for the history lesson... But if you noticed I asked a question, I didn't make a statement.

Do you think we have no impact on the planet?

And in your mind that makes it OK, you don't give a shit about them or any future generations, right?

Oops! Must have missed that!

I remember when there was a cold war joke that was something along the lines of "well if the Soviets nuke the US we'll be fine here -- we're twenty years behind everywhere else!" I always got a kick out of that because it's so true!

At least you're honest.

Do you think their suffering has no impact on you?
