    I think we could stop global warming if we all took Bean-o. I am not a global warming kind for person. History proves that. Though, I do believe we need to change our ways. The hole in the ozone is not getting any smaller.

    LOL!

    Well I'm told that methane IS a greenhouse gas so.... xD

    But the hole in the ozone layer has nothing to do with global warming but it IS getting smaller so that's good.

    I think if it was so simple, so many experts in their field who have access and knowledge way beyond us wouldn’t be lead astray chasing ghosts
    that makes no logic

    New Zealand is a poor basis for an argument.................it was ripe for take over by a new alien species. rats have had more to do with their decline than temps. are you telling me it was impossible that in another 20,000 years that it is impossible that a new preditor wouldnt have evolved and wiped them out anyways?

    and i did not distroy my own argument. sit and think about it for a minute. crocodilians, live in habits spanning the globe including places that currently see snow and have in the pat most definatly seen snow along with living in very hot areas and they survive even though the sex of their young is temperature driven, they have survived for how many millions of years through how many temperature cycles and are still a dominant large animal species even facing modern mammals.

    your tuatara example is using a VERY primitive reptile(so much so that its heart more resembles an amphibians that a reptiles) that is isolated on a single group of islands thats more indanger from rats than it is global warming. as to the experts, they are just like the experts that are screaming about man made global warming now, they are only study the recent past and either ignoring(in the case of the weather nuts) or do not have the data (in the case of the tuatara) to look much past 150 years ago. are you saying its impossible the low female birth rates have NEVER happened to the tuatara in the past? and that a few degrees in temperature difference is more of a threat than rats to their survival as a species? using the tuatara as an example for this is liketrying to use a endangered rabbit on some mountain here in the US as your defence arguement. your using examples that are bound to be wiped out eventually anyways even if man was not on this planet exactly because of their isolation has led to specialization which makes them vulnerable to changes anyways. the tuatara has been doomed to extinction since before our ancestors left the trees. its a design thats destained to fail when you introduce competition from animals currently alive and thriving elsewhere on the planet

    While I mostly agree with you Rattler, but its still not ok to say that who cares if they die off, they were doomed anyway. It's not right for us to hurry up an extixtion that was going to happen sooner or later anyway.

    Normaly it is these sensitive animals that die out first when there is a problem. Kind of like amphibians are the first animals to show the effects of pollution in a body of water.

    never said dont care, am saying its a poor example to show that "global warming" is killing off species when there is no evidance that the species can not handle it when they in all likelyhood have handled it in the past
