US Erection 12 *AND* 16

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

Climate change has been ongoing for over 4.6 billion years. The catastrophic events in earths history are due to geologic and or cosmic events. Species have come and gone. Mass extinctions have occurred. Earth kept rolling along as did life on Earth. To think our insignificant species can have a lasting effect is to be on the arrogant side of the debate.
Straw man. No-one is trying to make a lasting effect in terms of millenia. For the most part people are thinking of the immediate future, i.e. their kids and grandkids.
Princely the shortsighted arrogant belief that natural processes can be reversed in order to perpetuate a species in stasis.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

I doubt anyone seriously believes natural processes can be reversed but I think it’s clear that most people not in oil and gas and mining and heavy industry can admit the common sense in limiting our footprint as much as possible.

The situation reminds me of the stories about lamplighters in the 19th century, they fought electric lights tooth and nail, coming up with the same types of arguments but in the end electric lights won out and lamplighters are gone.

The nice thing about natural processes is that they are very slow, giving mankind time to adapt. It's an acceleration of the change that we want to avoid.

Agreed 5, I even agree with Topper on some points but to blatantly say there is no climate change is the arrogant part. I guess it makes some people happy and they can go to bed at night.

Massive solar flare (massive to us and our technology)

Strange argues just for the sake of arguing.

Ever notice he is involved with “EVERY” major discussion and always on the wrong side?
Would’ve been more PC so say... always on the other side.

To say always on the wrong side is just arrogant

Would hate to be that kid. Can't even play sports with the old man without worrying about a hip fracture.

Knowing Reefer2 as we do, it is fair to assume he has no clue as to what "anthropogenic" means

... and is too lazy to look it up.
