      Climate change is a natural  phenomena due to the sun's solar minimum & maximum, the Earth has gone through cycles of heating and cooling long before man even set foot on it, there is very little carbon dioxide in our atmosphere ..0.04% if you want the facts, this is the biggest tax scam ever,just wish people would wake up :readthemessage:

      Carbon dioxide is such a small component of Earth’s atmosphere (380 parts per million or 0.038%) that it shows up on the chart below as only a thin line 

      In the last 600 million years of Earth’s history only the Carboniferous Period and our present age, the Quaternary Period, have witnessed CO2 levels less than 400 ppm.

      Late Carboniferous to Early Permian time (315 mya — 270 mya) is the only time period in the last 600 million years when both atmospheric CO2 and temperatures were as low as they are today (Quaternary Period ).

       

      There has historically been much more CO2 in our atmosphere than exists today. For example:

      bullet_pin1.gif?resize=14%2C14 During the Jurassic Period (200 mya), average CO2 concentrations were about 1800 ppm or about 4.7 times higher than today.

      bullet_pin1.gif?resize=14%2C14 The highest concentrations of CO2 during all of the Paleozoic Era occurred during the Cambrian Period, nearly 7000 ppm — about 18 times higher than today.

      bullet_pin1.gif?resize=14%2C14 The Carboniferous Period and the Ordovician Period were the only geological periods during the Paleozoic Era when global temperatures were as low as they are today. To the consternation of global warming proponents, the Late Ordovician Period was also an Ice Age while at the same time CO2 concentrations then were nearly 12 times higher than today– 4400 ppm.

      According to greenhouse theory, Earth should have been exceedingly hot. Instead, global temperatures were no warmer than today. Clearly, other factors besides atmospheric carbon influence earth temperatures and global warming.

      You seek truth & justice then reject it??  ..i like you too, you're opinion on something wont change that ;)  ..but how does 0.04% CO2 cause global warming?? ..it cant, it's all a big tax scam!

      Empires (every single one) imposed a rhetoric, a doctrine and cultural sense of identity as the superior and/or righteous specimen of our species.

    3. football forum

      Azeem

      Of course but that cultural sense of identity is different from a national identity, i can give an example of my own country Punjab and Pakhtun lived under many Empires but there was never a clash between the two over their cultural identities but in the nation state era the Pakhtun feel threatened at times by the national identity which is dominated by Punjab rising conflicts. 

      Numerous more examples can be given

    4. football forum

      SirBalon

      It's the Empire itself that's the problem and everything it represents. No imperialism and no state promoting anything resembling a cultural identity as it causes division from the lowest to the highest scales.

  5. Politics have always been quite tribal (more so for some) forever. But now we're certainly living an era of the groomed, almost religious in its grandeur. The two are finally one!

    RIP DORIS DAY :(

      SchalkeUK

      You dad certainly had taste.  My house was full of her music in the 40's and as I grew older she became special to me - particularly after seeing Calamity Jane (my post in the music thread).  Had the one chance to meet her in '58 when I was working in HK and was offered a flight on a US Air Force transport to San Francisco to do some Radio Interviews for AFN from an English point of view.  As I was already smitten the few minutes were difficult - keeping serious whilst in awe is not easy!!! She tried - unsuccessfully - to convert me into a dog-lover, but other than that everything about her was total 'class'  Sad, sad day!

      Its like there was a pest problem at the club for the last 10 years and someone has finally hired rent to kill to sort the issue out!  Arsenal seem free, relaxed and have a plan on the pitch. 

    2. football forum

      SirBalon

      @Panna King... I have no idea what's going to happen from here on in but what's for sure is that this older Arsenal fan that has seen quite a bit is suddenly breathing once again where his club is concerned.  There's still a. Lot to do but the club is starting to seem more genuine and more in tune with how it once felt.  This is why all the positive comments from past Arsenal players.

      @Tommy Our constitution has its flaws, but overall the German justice system is very good. For example our "Verfahrensrecht" is continually copied by countries all over the globe.

      Well it's a hell of a lot better than your hippy neighbours the Belgians.  Right now Spain loves the German justice system a lot! B|

      Better songwriter than performer. Some of the best songs he's ever written were performed better by others. All Along the Watchtower (Jimi Hendrix), Mr. Tambourine Man (The Byrds), Knockin' on Heavens Door (Guns N Roses). Gotta disagree with @Spike here, do not listen to Neil Young
