Huh?! I'm really sorry if I misunderstand -- but that was a really wanting-to-be-ignorant-and-I'm-damn-proud-of-it comment! Why did you respond to my question in the first place if you don't care to elaborate or supply with a link that can justify your response? I have never heard about that 700 year thing, and I would very much like to see that.
Yes, it does matter, because I'm curious about when you think it's time to start finding new and better energy sources. Hard to understand?
I'm off to work now, so feel free to find a link meanwhile.
From my understanding: for ethanol to be a main power source we would have to cultivate the whole United States to grow corn to power our vehicles. The ratio of land needed to power output isn't viable. Ethanol was basically a way to get farmers some money for unsold corn, a farming subsidy.
Scientists want to develop cellulose ethanol but it is much more difficult to extract the energy from that then corn, thus it really hasn't gone anywhere.

Hey, I am doing my part to help the global warming problem.
Ever weekend, I bring a cooler full of ice and beer outside and drink the beer down, so that that ice can melt and help chill the atmosphere.

*yawn* I haven't read through the thread yet but I'll get around to it. I've seen the film before. It is nothing more than a collection of pseudoscientific lies nicely packaged together. The guys in it are all known scumbags who have made careers out of denying climate change. The ones who aren't scumbags have had their interviews editted to make it seem like they were saying something they weren't.
100,000,000 years ago? Yes. But not 1,000 years ago. And 100,000,000 years ago was the time of the dinosaurs when the entire planet was just one continent and the whole thing was a jungle. Not exactly a human-friendly place.
Rising temperatures causes the release of CO2 in the atmosphere. This is true. HOWEVER, the release of CO2 into the atmosphere further increases the temperature. BOTH happen. We're releasing ADDITIONAL CO2 into the atmosphere, causing the effects to be bigger than ever before.

The documentary is funded by big business? We should look at it with caution?
On the other hand, we should blindly accept everything the way everything is portrayed in Jesus Camp
