whatever...Munch said:we ARE destroying the planet. I see it everyday
I didn't ask you to look anything up for me, just to back up what you said. If you're truly a scientist, then you shouldn't have to look anything up to back up a general statement like yours.Munch said:I don't have time to look up all the stats for your ass.
I didn't try to deny anything, except that we are DESTROYING the Earth. Affecting it; yes. Beyond repair; no.Munch said:You can not deny the fact that the the industrialization of the world did not cause any problems, can you?
I like Granola!Munch said:No, I am not a tree-hugging, granola eating, vegan who wears hemp clothing.
Insulting again...I don't understand why you react like this. I am not stupid or thick-headed, I just wanted some evidence for what you stated in your previous post, that's all. Lighten up a bit and try to be a bit more informative, and a bit less insulting. It'll really help your credibility, and you KNOW I'm right.Munch said:P.S. Look in a 4th grade science book and it will explain to you: animals take in oxygen and exhale nitrogen, trees inhale nitrogen and exhale oxygen. It is a process called respiration (look it up if you don't know what it means).
Cmon Nick, I think you are a little smarter than that.CBR Brutha said:

I like him already !!! You'll fit in just fine Munch.Munch said:I was afraid this would happen. Look, I don't want to fight and I don't have time to look up all the stats for your ass. I stand by what I said and if you don't believe I don't really give a shit. Take your head out of the sand and find them yourself.
You can not deny the fact that the the industrialization of the world did not cause any problems, can you? There wasn't smog before we industrialized, there wasn't wide spread pollution of the ground water, or the air, or the soil. I did not say the world would end tomorrow, I simply mean to point out that we are impacting the global ecosystem.
No, I am not a tree-hugging, granola eating, vegan who wears hemp clothing. I am not sounding an alarm, preaching from my soapbox, or jumping on the environmental bandwagon; I just am saying that....Oh why ****ing bother!!!!!
P.S. Look in a 4th grade science book and it will explain to you: animals take in oxygen and exhale nitrogen, trees inhale nitrogen and exhale oxygen. It is a process called respiration (look it up if you don't know what it means). Clear cutting trees is not a good idea.
It's all good bro. Just wanted to let you know that's how you were coming across, and if you want people to respect what you're saying, you gotta say it in a respectable way.Munch said:CBR Brutha, Sorry for the rant, I didn't mean to be insulting (really I didn't).
Pollution does present problems. I never said it didn't. What I did say is that I do not believe it is destroying the Earth the extent to which some would have us believe. I support some of the laws, and working for Ford Motor Co., I am directly affected by some of them. I think they are good though, because they cause us as designers to be more responsible and think about the short and long-term effect of the products we produce.Munch said:Let me pose this question to you, if pollution presents no problems than why are there laws prohibiting it?
NoMunch said:I have some property in Chernobyl to sell, you interested?
LOL! Sorry Nick, I know you're smart, I respect your opinion . It's just that you started to sound like GreenNinja for a minute so I had too !CBR Brutha said:
Yes Squidwannabe, I guess if you view that opinion as stupid, then that I am.
I saw a spot on Discovery about the same thing.. On how every 10,000 years the planet's ice caps melt and so on.Munch said:Don't believe me, I don't care. Keep listening to Rush Limblow and keep polluting, it's job security for me!
Umm yeah ok, sure.. (???)Munch said:GreenNinja.. scientists can have potty mouths too and how the hell do you know what I look like? Was that you peeking in the bathroom window last night while I was in the shower? Sick bastard!.
Thats all well and good, and i completely agree with you on your points in THAT regard. But you are missing the point of the article, (if you actually read it) The article is discussing GLOBAL WARMING. Regardless of the extremist title, the content is focused on one issue.I am a hydrogeologist (a geologist who specializes in the study of groundwater....contaminated soil and groundwater, ....the soil and .... If that is not destroying, I don't know what is. ...the earth could....chemically breakdown the contaminants if we stopped polluting, but we don't (degradation time varies by chemical so if you are really that interested, look it up yourself) so the natural degradation processes can't keep up.
Just as CBRBrutha said in his reply i will also say i never said i was an advocate of pollution. (????????) You sure do jump to alot of conclusions!Let me pose this question to you, if pollution presents no problems than why are there laws prohibiting it?
"Myopic"why are there places where nothing grows and nothing lives? I have some property in Chernobyl to sell, you interested?. You know, just because it doesn't affect you directly (and it does, you just to myopic to realize it) doesn't mean it is not a problem.
Thats the first intelligent thing youve said in this thread.I guess, technically, I agree with the statement that we are not destroying the earth.
And that is the second intelligent thing youve said in this thread. I agree wholeheartedly.We are destroying ourselves. The earth will be here a long time after our arrogant race is gone.
And the third intelligent thing youve said.Don't believe me, I don't care.
How very mature. I bet you voted for Al Gory and Billy Clintoon and Jimmy Carteratotatopator. Ya yer really witty.Keep listening to Rush Limblow and keep polluting, it's job security for me!
