James Hansen, one of the world's leading climate scientists, will today call for the chief executives of large fossil fuel companies to be put on trial for high crimes against humanity and nature, accusing them of actively spreading doubt about global warming in the same way that tobacco companies blurred the links between smoking and cancer.

Hansen will use the symbolically charged 20th anniversary of his groundbreaking speech (pdf) to the US Congress - in which he was among the first to sound the alarm over the reality of global warming - to argue that radical steps need to be taken immediately if the "perfect storm" of irreversible climate change is not to become inevitable.

Speaking before Congress again, he will accuse the chief executive officers of companies such as ExxonMobil and Peabody Energy of being fully aware of the disinformation about climate change they are spreading.

I say that it's about time someone did something like this.
 
OMG!? This guy is out of control. Everyone just wants to feel better about themselves by "saving the environment" but no one wants to do anything about it. This guy, himself, needs to be put on trial for spreading a mass hysteria across the planet, and putting fear into the hearts of those who have nothing substantial to worry about other than the health of their planet, which is not going to blow up for another 10 million years.

When do we get hydrogen cars? That should make everyone happy, especially the hippies. Has anyone seen BullSh*t with Pen and Teller???

Global warming is a very serious and real problem. Stop ignoring it.
 
It is not as bad as Al ****ing Gore is making it out to be, and we are sure as hell not causeing it. The earth is safe for atleast another five billion years, At which point the sun will become too hot and burn us all into oblivion.

Lol, an asteroid could prolly blast earth out of our solar system the very next day,
but besides that there is a natural global warming plus the nonnatural one
caused by Turnip, Varine, me and everyone else known to be sort of a human being.

Yes, it is that bad. Yes, we are sure as hell making it a lot worse. The Earth is not safe for at least another five-billion years. I don't think you know what you're talking about.
 
I think "Global Warming" is natural. Humans might slightly be processing a bit faster, but with current technology, we will survive, just like the cave man did.

Can you give me some type of concrete evidence at all that ANY of that is true. I just cannot find anything that's supports that. Your reason seems to be "that's how I want it to be."

The current denial of global warming is very similar to the evolution "debate" a few years ago. I suggest waiting for the anti-science segment of the American public to catch up.
 
Humans Don't have that big of a hold of the Earth. We won't kill it. We won't save it.

Humans don't hold of the fate of the earth, in fact its the other way around.

Global Warming is a scam. And it is doing well.

It's not a scam. Accept it.

This one seems pretty trustable.

I've read some intresting article about desinformation caused by the oil lobby. They pay institutes with scientists to make the whole debat to look contended so politicians don't act against them.
And it seemed pretty trustable.
 
Global warming is the biggest hoax ive ever seen. The media has taken the idea and spiraled it out of control. There is no huge agreement between the scientists on whether global warming is real. Infact, there is a huge dividing line with almost equal sides. I did a huge speech on why global warming is fake. Its just propaganda to get democrates elected. This idiot scientist is practicaly going to create another salem witch trial. Arrest him, he doesnt beleive in global warming! -.-

Little info, charts already show that we had the coldest winter in decades last winter. Infact, the warmest years in the 1900's were the 1930's and since then, they have been on a slow decrees and have plataued. This year, the antarctic set a record for having the most ice since 1960. You want sources? I can get you them. O, and that graph that shows the CO2 levels and temperature levels over the life of the earth. CO2 has nothing to do with those high temperature levels. Naturaly when the weather is hotter, more ice melts and organic matter is allowed to decay that normaly wasnt able to. Our current technology is also not good enough to replace oil as a power source. Im not dismissing the fact that the globe could be warming because of CO2, but it is a natural cycle and humans are not the cause nor can do anything to stop it. And the globe isnt warming as fast as the media says.

If we start putting people on trial for being against global warming, not only will we have regressed to McCarthy's trials against supposed communists, we will be practicing censorship and we will be preventing people from expressing their freedom of speech. Its a dumb idea and will never happen. Even if we did do this to the oil companies, then what? Do we arrest our citizens too? How far do we take this?



Wikipedia...great source -.-

O and if you guys want my sources, I will gladly find them for you.

  • The Helper The Helper:
    News portal has been retired. Main page of site goes to Headline News forum now
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am working on getting access to the old news portal under a different URL for those that would rather use that for news before we get a different news view.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Easily done
    +1
  • The Helper The Helper:
    https://www.thehelper.net/pages/news/ is a link to the old news portal - i will integrate it into the interface somewhere when i figure it out
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Need to try something
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Hopefully this won't cause problems.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Hmm
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I have converted the Headline News forum to an Article type forum. It will now show the top 20 threads with more detail of each thread.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    See how we like that.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I do not see a way to go past the 1st page of posts on the forum though
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It is OK though for the main page to open up on the forum in the view it was before. As long as the portal has its own URL so it can be viewed that way I do want to try it as a regular forum view for a while
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Yeah I'm not sure what the deal is with the pagination.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It SHOULD be there so I think it might just be an artifact of having an older style.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I switched it to a "Standard" article forum. This will show the thread list like normal, but the threads themselves will have the first post set up above the rest of the "comments"
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I don't really get that article forum but I think it is because I have never really seen it used on a multi post thread
  • Ghan Ghan:
    RpNation makes more use of it right now as an example: https://www.rpnation.com/news/

    What do you think Tom?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I will have to get used to this.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    The latest news feed looks good
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I would like to see it again like Ghan had it the first time with pagination though - without the pagination that view will not work but with pagination it just might...
