One question: how did the viruses survive? Won't they be dead by now? So why will the global warming affect them?

Your wide variety of experts are not that expert after all. Most have no more knowledge of climate and meteorology than you and I and most never take the trouble to get facts but just go along with the political winds of the day. Follow the money on Climate Change and you will discover that it is really just another way to take control of your money and your life with more government - world government at that. The globalist will lie, cheat and stop at nothing to own you.
Yes that is why I should listen to someone who is less of an expert on the field :)

I believe the earth is flat as well. But I see facts and see where I am wrong. It is undeniable that humans are influencing the climate and it is changing before our eyes. It is true that the earth has got its own cycles on a 10,000 or more years basis. The concern is more for the next generations and the world we will leave for them. I do not want my grandkids to live in a world where there are no birds, butterflies and polar bears.
Thats good. What are you doing to change it? Maybe my ancestors said, I do not want my grand kids to live in a world where dodo birds, tasmanian tigers and japanese sea lions do not exist. (And the list goes on) My point is not to say who is right or who is wrong. Do you practice what you preach? have you planted any trees? What can even be done about it? If everyone worked togther, maybe we could slow polution. Even if you could, can you really stop the enevitable?

I do. I beleive in respecting the earth and nature. I dont litter and do service projects to clean up our earth. I love the planet, but I also recognise it has its natural cycles nature has and always will change.

Geoengineering isn't a conspiracy theory it is a conspiracy fact. Try doing a little research every once in awhile and learn something. What do you think chemtrails are? That is called Geoengineering. Even Russia has a HAARP. Another one of those little conspiracy facts. Actually in the 80's they were saying we were going to have a mini ice age. I remember seeing it on the news when I was younger. They will do anything to control the human population. Remember that and use common sense and don't be a sucker. Not to mention we are not the only country with these capabilities.
"Chemtrails"....oh, you mean contrails. Yes, you are a conspiracy theorist It's always extra amusing when conspiracy theorists say to "use common sense."

If this is so important to you and you believe this why aren't you out protesting the corporations that are the ones making most of the pollution? I remember when I lived near an Alcoa and the water was turning green around it. That is why they decided to bottle up the aluminum runoff and get rid of it through putting it in all the drinking water called fluoride. Very good for your teeth and the environment.
You seem to be pretending that no one is in fact protesting those corporations and pushing for changes. Your post makes no sense.

So Al Gore is not a liberal going around preaching and making movies while living in his mansion and flying around in his custom plane? He don't even believe it himself or he would live off the grid. Which he don't. That is called a hypocrite which most politicians are. He would stand to make many more millions for carbon taxes.
None of your silly rant changes the fact that the science was already strong well before anyone, "liberal" or not, started pushing it to the mainstream.

Chemtrails stick around in the sky and spread out all over the sky and slowly come to the ground. I watch them all the time during the summer. Contrails dissipate almost instantly. It is easy to see the difference between the two when you watch them. I was in the Air Force so I have seen enough planes to see the difference. You can call me what you want but observation for yourself is key. That is precisely what I use my common sense and my observation and researching abilities.

It's called Problem, Reaction, Solution. The controllers create the problem you get the reaction from the citizens for the controllers to push the bills they wanted passed all along. Sure their may be protests not very big ones but they are protesting for exactly what the controllers want.
What is wanted by the controllers is carbon taxes and pretty much taxing the air you breath. Also having everybody living in a society where it is all compacted much like China. I hope you like one room houses for your family. Everything will be on the smart meters and all your smart devices to know exactly how much energy you are using. And well if you go over your energy consumption look to be fined and or imprisoned. That is the future they want. So yea keep protesting for that. :LOL:

I never said I didn't believe in science. Heck if it wasn't for science we would still be in the dark ages with religion and burning people at stakes because they thought they were witches. I am talking about this new propaganda mainstream science that is controlled and not science at all. It has become more governmental controlled science and well this science has become a religion in itself.

The true science is independent scientists that don't take money from big corporations and governments. Which is almost impossible since it is very hard to make money as an independent scientist without the backing of these controllers of society. Their are some scientists out their but those good ones are than called quacks because it don't go along with what the controllers want. You see Neo everything is controlled from your education system to your sciences to your religions to the news that you get and the food that you eat. You literally are in the Matrix.

Well if you have nothing better to say than that I would say maybe the fluoride in your water you are drinking is toxic to your thought patterns. Not being able to think for yourself.
Right, of course. The great fluoride conspiracy. Along with the "chemtrail" conspiracy. The climate change "hoax". The HAARP weather weapons. The"directed energy" beam weapons used in the California wildfire conspiracy.

You're all about the conspiracy theories.

It is not hard to imagine viruses as we know them to have been trapped at times of our past. The climate change of 12,000 years ago was so fast that things got buried in a day. But you can't help but ignore the more deadly ones being made in labs and ultimately being accidentally released.

The "science" is not science at all but made up convenient propaganda. The numbers were fudged or just ignored to fit the desired outcome. There is nothing more going on than the normal cycling of climate on the earth and other planets. You guys act like we live in a steady-state closed system instead of on a planet circling a sun, zooming throught the universe at incredible speeds and and interacting with all sorts of things we know nothing about. The human race is not smart enough to begin to understand climate activity on this or any other planet even though some members want you to believe they do.
