    Anyone else catch this?

    I watched it tonight on DVD. Its a put together by Al Gore, he talks about global warming and backs his words up with scientific fact, findings and some neat graphs ^_^

    I recommend this movie to everyone and anyone.

    Al Gore ignores any data that goes against the point he's making.

    Steve's dad is Al Gore?

    I watched it and I think it's awesome. I was looking for it on DVD... Where can you buy it on DVD?

    The data isn't ignored - remember that most people consider the US "ignoring" the problem because we won't sign up with Kyoto. Truth be known, the US has the most stringent anti-pollution regulation in the world. Without Kyoto.

    yeah I like how he says the ocean will rise 20 inches and then shows maps where the water swallows half of america. Didn't know half of the Conus sat a 20 inches or less below sea level...

    20 feet. How can we have the most stringent pollution problem when we are one of the main contributors (ill say top 3 instead of gore's #1) of pollution in the world?

    i love the part where back in the day he is sayin this stuff to the govt and some old fart says "this is the biggest hoax ever.."

    Sun: More activity since 1940 than in previous 1150 years, combined

    Mercury: Unexpected polar ice discovered, along with a surprisingly strong intrinsic magnetic field … for a supposedly “dead” planet

    Venus: 2500% increase in auroral brightness, and substantive global atmospheric changes in less than 30 years

    Earth: Substantial and obvious world-wide weather and geophysical changes

    Mars: “Global Warming,” huge storms, disappearance of polar icecaps

    Jupiter: Over 200% increase in brightness of surrounding plasma clouds

    Saturn: Major decrease in equatorial jet stream velocities in only ~20 years, accompanied by surprising surge of X-rays from equator

    Uranus: “Really big, big changes” in brightness, increased global cloud activity

    Neptune: 40% increase in atmospheric brightness

    Pluto: 300% increase in atmospheric pressure, even as Pluto recedes farther from the Sun



    What does all this mean ? Simple !

    BUSH DID ALL OF THIS.

    Our SUV's are so goddam polluting that OTHER PLANETS have experienced their damaging effects.

    Ok ok ok ok... you can see my humor here. But this is me saying this, And this is the only time I'll say it.

    Global Warming is mostly debunked. Tip your waitress, and go home.

    So would you also say "string theory" is debunked?

    EDIT: this is a serious question, not just a side-track

    alright 20 feet not inches, my argument still holds

    90% of an iceberg is already underwater. Newsflash treehuggers! God is a fisherman, that's why Ice expands when it freezes, melt it into water and it occupies less area. Using science that I learned in the 3rd grade the only thing that getting bigger is Al Gore's fat Golfer ass...

    Eat up, you're still not the president loser...

    Links to research or ban.

    The radar images from Mercury *SUGGEST* ice. They do not prove it. They are close, but not eligible for the proverbial cigar.

    Pluto... Two words: NO SHIT.

    Pluto's atmosphere has this knack of solidifying and falling to the ground when it passes Neptune. That happens every time it passes. Nothing special there, move along.

    Atmospheric changes on Venus are also not 100% proven. When you can keep a probe working on the surface of Venus for 20 years, then I might start taking you a bit more seriously.

    On Mars? Yes, its atmosphere is 90% CO2, but it is too thin to allow for a global warming style change. Now Venus... THAT'S global warming.
