Just read a quote today: Having sex is about the most dangerous thing a man can do. LOL

The beauty of this virus is it is easily cured with a round of antibiotics. Anyone that WANTED to have a child would simply visit their Dr, take their meds for a few days along with some vitamins and they would once again be fertile. Once you stop taking the meds you become infertile again. NO accidental babies !! No need for abortion. A greatly reduced population growth. Less strain on the planets resources.

I thought it was brilliant.


If we were to ever have a successful socialist/communist society that would be a must, or something along those lines.

I find the term tree hugger or bunny lover offensive. Tree huggers and bunny lovers protect the environment and de facto I am a tree lover and bunny hugger.

Today we have more then 7 Billion people on the planet. We have nearly 1 billions cars and trucks roaming the planet. We have millions of factories around the world as well as the power plants needed to run them. Our houses are bigger, our cars are bigger, the distance we drive to get to work have gotten longer. Every industrial nation is following the same course.

I'm not convinced that ALL warming is due to human activity, but we HAVE to be making an impact on the environment. We've got a pile of garbage the size of Texas floating around the Pacific ocean. Parts of China are so polluted that workers put on enviro suits and ride a bus for nearly 2 hours to arrive at work because nothing, not trees, not grass, not even bugs can live in the area. There is simply no way that humans aren't having a very negative effect on the planet.

Oddly enough, one of the most profound statements ever, was from a sci-fi movie. In the original Matrix movie the alien was talking about how a virus will invade it's host and ultimately will kill the host even though doing so means it's own destruction.

Then he says that on the planet earth, HUMANS are the virus !!!

We MUST start now trying to figure out how to minimize our impact on the planet. Otherwise in the not terribly distant future the planet won't be able to sustain us.
The statement that ALL warming is due to human activity is not the way to look at it.

We are talking about an increase in the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. That is the direct cause of climate change.

There are two sources of greenhouse gases, natural and man made.

The natural sources have always existed but have been offset by the natural ways in which greenhouse gases have been removed thus maintaining a delicate balance.

What human activity has done is upset that balance.

Think of it as a balance scale. On one side the weights represent how much gas is generated, the other side represents how much gas is removed. As long as both sides are equal it remains balanced. Human activity (especially over the last 150 years) has upset the balance by adding weight to the generation side AND removing weight from the removal side. The addition and subtraction is small compared to the natural sources of generation and removal but it is enough to tip the scale AND we continue to add and subtract which accelerates the problem.

One of the best photos I've seen of Monday's eclipsed sun.

Where? The Science Channel used an orange filter and none were visible. What your picture shows in black and white is the Corona.

That's only funny if you're a virgin or a woman. It's a deadly stone fact.
