    It's an honest question, I really am curious about this...

    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.

    the time is NOW to find a replacement for petrol.........but let me ask you a question....if you invented a engine that ran on garbage....do you actually think the powers that run the oil giants would ever let you market the engine? you'd probably disappear along with your engine.....

    Doesn't sound too bad to me.


    And it is not about simple economics. It's about things like lobbying politicians to oppose higher fuel economy standards, or buying and shelving patents for inventions that, when built, might pose a threat to the company's bottom line.
    Haven't read the whole thread but...

    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.

    Wheter thats true or not, (which I highly doubt) how much of that is deep under some seriously politically unstable countires, and how sacrifices are we gonna have to make to get it? Without getting too political, current events being a case in point.

    Oh, and sweet, a debate thats got to six pages without any mud slinging!

    those places have always been unstable, irregardless of oil being there or not, but nobody has the political will to take the bull by the horns

    *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.

    Volcanos are not a significant source of greenhouse gasses.

    False.

    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.

    If the CO2 levels in the ocean get much higher, it will become poisonous to the organisms that live there. Algea in the ocean is the only reason the planet hasn't turned into Venus. Once it all dies, we're screwed.

    However, ethanol is far, far, far, far, far, far, far cleaner burning.

    2(OH) + O2 = 2(H2O)

    There's much less carbon involved and so much less carbon dioxide is burned, not to mention nitrogen and sulfur compounds.

Interesting. :hmmm:
    Check the link I posted to.

    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.

    25, actually. It would be 55 if demand stayed where it is now, but demand will increase as countries like China and India develop. So we only have around 25 years before oil is so expensive that it won't be worth using.

    I haven't insulted any of the other posters here, which means you're the one dragging down the discussion. Congrats.

    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
