    cows release mathane gas which cases the same effects as co2
    anyway lcd is so much more efficient than old cathode tube monitors that im sure they cause alot less greenhouse gases (production of LCD screens cuases greenhouse gases but the saving in energy offsets this)

    the problem is this wastefull way of living has been accumalating and were are only starting to see the effects now(climate change takes decades). dirty air etc is reversable as you pointed out urself- cleaner fuels filters etc, climate clange is way way harder to reverse

    I suppose it could be formed by waves lapping upon frozen bits then part of them becomes frozen as it pulls back, rinse repeat you'd have an effect that looks like it has been frozen on the spot.

    Winter, 1863?

    You speak as if you're granpa was alive to witness it... Is he the OLDEST MAN ALIVE?!?!?!

    I'm sick of this "Green" crap.. It's hyped up by marketing arseholes saying "look at us, aren't we great? Saving YOUR planet for you."... It's an overblown situation. We have quite a few more pressing issues to worry about, such as why it's 2008 and there are still 3-4 Billion people without sufficient means to live.

    I REALLY hate greenpeace...

    According to some theories (Global Dimming), all our filtering, cleaning, catalysts and exhaust particulates (is that even a word?) control is actually accelerating global warming. It seems that all that soot being flung into the atmosphere was reflecting a significant amount of sunlight back into space, slowing down global warming. Anyway, it seems to be a lose-lose scenario.

    So, should I replace my dying CRT and poison the soil and water with all sorts of evil heavy metals and chemicals, since we don't have proper hazardous waste disposal in Brazil? Or buy an LCD and poison the skies?

    Better yet, let's have it the green way. Let's all go back to nature, live in houses made of bamboo and thatched hatch, cook using only sun-powered stoves (I'm sorry all you English and Scottish folk, you'll have to find a way of living without your hot tea!). We must turn back from decadent things such as running water and sewers. Who wouldn't love to go out on a chilly winter morning to take a pee under a lemon tree?

    The only problem is that there have been climate swings for millenia as seen in fossils. Are we in one of those or are we forcing one? Nobody knows.

    I agree with you on the wastefull ways. I remember when I lived in USA that i took out more trash bags after food shopping than what I brought in. It still hppens in Germany where I live now, but is not as bad. We need to be concious of our use the problem is with so many sudies pointing that everything is bad, I guess the only solution is that 60% of the population dies... hmm.. no the bodies would decompose and affect the ozone again... (/off sarcastic and morbid comment)

    If we keep it up there will be close to 7 billion people without sufficient means to live. I'm sure some of it is overhyped but with this many people on this planet we are making an impact on it, there's just no question about it. Whether it's sooner or later, we prolly will be the end of this planet unless people take responsibility for their actions, though I'm sure no one will.

    But my LCD is done being manufactured so it is no longer using said chemical with hard to pronounce name..... How would turning it off help this situation? I turned it down to 50% brightness as my eyes couldn't handle it and I wanted to be environmentally conscious. So I figure Im doing my part to save the penguins :thumb:

    turn it off as in turning it off on the button, not on the remote, and also not leaving it on when there is no one using it.


    all that stuff reflects radiation back into space, like it would happen in a nuclear winter or in a big ass volcano eruption, these days we don't emit stuff that reflects radiation (the last thing they banned caused acid rain) and emit stuff that captures the heat.


    if there is effective sequestration and/or isolation technology then there is no problem with this gas.

    one last thought: if the worse of global climate change (AKA global warming) happens then the fact that 3-4 Billion people are without sufficient means to live will be moot.

    to give those 3-4 Billion people a means to live would involve forcing "people" (or in this case, parasites) to not steal from the community pie, from the mid classes and the low classes, it would be also necessary a joint push from everyone to avoid war and use that money to help people get on their feet and make humanity live in peace.

    i am not pro Greenpeace, i hate them for what they are now, they have become radical and useless, i do believe in scientists and in panels of scientists when they say something is wrong.
