KUALA LUMPUR: A rose may stop smelling like a rose.

This is the concern of environmentalists as flowers are losing their scent due to climate change and air pollution. And their fragrance may be lost forever.


It is shit like this that is destructive to real science and makes liberals as a whole seem sort of weird. Not that there anything wrong with that. Sorry Buddha, couldn't help starting another wacko thread on global warming [sic]]

I was sure you were going to say, "Flowers losing scent due to Obama health care bill."

Damn you're desperate!

It's things like ExxonMobile financing most of the denial industry that undermines the entire denier case mate, even more so that looking further than the end of your nose, even if THAT may be disappearing over the horizon.

Re: Damn you're desperate!

Do you get dumber everyday or is senility setting in fast MATE! First, a homework assignment OFH...read G. Orwell's "An Homage To Catalonia". It may jog your dwindling memory of how Britain became a feeble and decaying socialist nation without an identity. Now, let me explain the facts of life for you as they pertain to AGW. It's very simple really, in that even a completely off balanced moron like you can most likely grasp the concept. Earth is part of an extremely large and complex cyclical feedback system consisting of the local evironment, earth's solar orbit and rotation, earth's internal and surface geophysical activities, moon, solar system and galactic position. This whole slice of the cosmic pie is ever changing and in constant dynamic flux, with occassional intercessions from a myriad of both solar and extra solar interlopers/effects i.e.,comets, asteroids, planetary alignments/orbital positions, solar activity, galactic orbital position, alien visitations etc... I've left alot of the detail off concerning what we do know and of course that for which we do not yet understand. Bottom line is that even if all of mankind woke up tommorrow and decided to join forces to combat AGW, the results would be exceedingly small...a few % reduction in green house gases at best by anyones numbers. Well, anyone who does reall science and doesn't make shit up to get grants or awards and publish papers. Reality is even bleaker for the tree huggers...the new industrial age is owned by countries like china, India and malaysia etc..., and I got news for you sunshine, they aren't gonna play fair! Summing up then, reasonable restrictions on emmissions and appropriate environmental stabilization guidelines should be enforced, and for the most part, are being implemented. Killing jobs, restricting economic growth and imposing overly burdonsome guidelines for the general population, in addition to scaring the shit out of our kids, is insane. Earth's environment will change and it will eventually be inhospitable for some or even most of the world's population. Carbon credits will make Al Gore rich, fat and happy, but it won't make him smart or save our ass from the next heat up or cool down cycle.

"I've left alot of the detail off": like why Orwell crops up twi

Maybe the use of him has been suggested in an email to you this week.
Maybe you've just discovered him.
Maybe you have no idea who it is paying for denial(of) science.
Anyway, you're lost up shit creek without a paddle and no amount of squirming will get you to a better place.

You really should see someone about that...it could get worse as you get older. Well, in your case, more ancient.
