When I hear people tell me that humans are the reason that the Earth is dying, for some reason it makes me think of Gaia from Captain Planet. I look back on that show now and ask those people that tell me these things if they liked the show and they yell it's better the anything in the world. Tells it like it is.
I can't believe I dogged a bullet, I used to like it, but then given how young I was, I'm surprised and scared of what could have become.
I'm so sick of self-loathing treehuggers bitching about how the world would be better off without humans. Without humans, you have a bunch of ignorant animals and plants that aren't intelligent enough to appreciate the Earth. Without humanity, it all means nothing.
PS, after reading some of the comments here: Maybe you should do a cartoon about how liberals demand documented facts to back the points of conservative arguments, but liberals never feel the need to actually provide any, themselves. Or how liberals expect YOU to do their research FOR them when they want to know something. Or how even when you DO provide this documentation, they immediately jump to 'you can't prove they aren't biased!' but ignore the fact that all of their OWN sources have the same potential for bias.
I've been saying this from the start of the global warming bullshit. More CO2 means more thriving plantlife. More thriving plantlife means more oxygen. More oxygen means more thriving animal life. More thriving animal life = good. And the animals eat the animals and the plants and it really all evens out but with more thriving life in general.
Yes, exactly. And all the polar icecap melting 'save the polar bears' crap. Its the polar bears hunting grounds!! ...They think seals are incapable of climbing onto dry land? And arctic animals don't actually LIKE the cold. Yeah, those emperor penguins sure look like they're having fun all huddled together trying not to die during the winter.
And all these same people believe in evolution, so...wont we all just ADAPT anyway??
Out presence is what is ruining the earth. Earth is significant because of the life that lives with the land not destroys. If people were capable of realizing that this is the only one we have maybe we'd take better care of it instead of taking everything out of it.
Go live in a cave and scavenge for food then. No really, do it right now. Stop using any form of modern technology and go live like a damn caveman. Otherwise shut up and quit bitching at everyone else when you're guilty of the same exact thing.
I think Bears like living. Maybe not in the extreme sense that humans do, but I'm sure they have a few survival tendencies.
Look up the word "arrogance" see if you are a pictorial representation.
Eco-terrorist/industrialists are a funny sort. They do actions based on their feelings and self-gratification. That is not to say that science doesn't support ideas like humans can change the global temperature index via the movement of molecules.
I wonder if you known that CO2 doesn't just disappear, it has to be converted to something else or escape the earth's atmosphere. Be rest assured, if there is fire, there will be CO2. If there is a combustion... there will be CO2. If there are animals... there will be CO2. So little plants, be happy knowing you will have CO2 to take in for your metabolism. You cannot tax every animal in the world, nor can you tax a fire.
Oh and that picture looks like a land with direct sunlight, possibly from a lack of ozone cover, or reflective heat energy making life hard for the plants there in the desert.
As a scientist, this cartoon is full of retarded thought. Ignorance leads not to bliss, but infection, mental infection within a society.
Its a combination of Nitrogen, Oxygen, Carbon Dioxide and other various elements that makes up the thing we call (Air). From what I can tell your not much of a biologist and not a very good judge either.
We need trees, hence why the government needs to put regulations on the forest industry. If anybody could do whatever they wanted than the corporations would be taking advantage of americas land and its citizens alike. Not that that isn't already happening.
...and what about all the forests you yuppies are tarring down to make expensive furniture and the plains and meadows that get turned into parking lots, skyscrapers, etc.? What happens when your dream world of a planet covered entirely by concrete comes to life and there isn't enough plant life to keep the oxygen-CO2 chain going and we don't evolve quick enough?
You are also the slowest and laziest commenter/replier that I've ever had the displeasure of knowing.
You'd never be happy unless the planet was full of concrete and buildings, unable to provide suitable conditions for plant-life to convert the CO2 that you so marvelously praise to oxygen. And do try to pick up the pace with replies, your acting like a lazybones hippie who sends out letters too late to do anything.
What is significant about earth is that it has life in the first place, not just human life. Also Carbon dioxide is made up of one carbon molecule and 2 Oxygen, CO2 ( O=C=O ). That means that there can be more CO2 in the atmosphere because molecules can change form and exchange charges with each other. In other words there can be more CO2, it just means that there will be less O2 (Oxygen) In the atmosphere. Another thing is that CO2 isn't the only chemical that factories give off. There are a lot of other dangerous chemicals that they can spew out as well such as; sulphur dioxide, Nitrogen oxide, Carbon monoxide, Ammonia, chlorofluorocarbons, lead, cadmium, copper etc depending on what type of factory it is and what they are making.
This is the stupidest question I have ever seen. You won the prize, congrats. Matter changes form and changes location. We put things in the air that would have been locked in the ground for millions more years.
Which was a great idea. Cattle were never naturally as plentiful as humans have made them, and while we increase the number of cattle we decrease the tropical forest that naturally removes co2 from the air.
