    I care. even if politically driven "science" says there is or isnt global warming i care! ... lets say its not global warming... you think all this pollution is good the earth and the air? I have a cottage 4hrs. out of toronto and i can jog up there and have a smile. In Toronto i wouldn't dare to jog or run. If big corporations are setting the example that it is okay to leave an ecological footprint then i guess thats where we need to start. Hey im assuming your an older person. In school its all about eco logical footprint (in canada at least). Backk to the topic.. so say its not global warming n its something else.. then that makes it totally ok then right? thats what your telling me.

    It's possible to reason anything into whatever you want it to be.
    That's why you can't take anything anyone says at face value.
    Environmentalists may have convinced themselves that they are saving the the world, but ultimately they are just kidding themselves. They campaign so that they can feel good about themselves without really understanding what they are doing.

    Global Warming is fake, made up for power grabs and financial gain. If people really can't see that yet...that my friend is what's truly sad.

    Global warming is not fake. The controversy lies on whether it's man made or not. There have been eras of extremely hot temperatures/ice ages during the past (millions/thousands of years ago). Scientists debate on whether the recorded temperature rise in the past 30 or so years is caused by humans or is simply a natural trend re-occurring.

    Giving people more money to do the same job could cause the company to go out of business. If they happens, they have no jobs, and no money to spend.

    If you are getting a raise, you should be more productive so you aren't getting paid more for nothing.

    With that said, we are both right. If it works, its good for the economy, if it causes the company to go under, no job, no money.

    You are right, I agree that the planet is warming. However there is no hard evidence that it is man made. I should rephrase what I said and say that I believe 100% that man made global warming is a fraud made up for power grabs and financial gain.

    I understand. I never said I believe it's man made; was just providing facts from both sides.

    I don't really worry to much about the environment... But honestly these last 3 pages of posts worry me.
    It's not that I care about the iPad and what it does to the environment, but the way people responded is ridiculous. I couldn't even count the "who cares" responses.
    I don't go out of my way to go green or help out the environment, but I do think that if people think like that we will run into problems in the future.
    Thanks,
    Matt

    I am a vegetarian x 30 years. As such my overall carbon footprint is so much lower than the average ravenous lunatic meat eat nut living on Fritos and beer after gorging the backsides, legs, breasts, and internal organs of a literal multitude of animals and...forgot my point. Oh well, I am old and won't be on the earthy ball much longer so have fun paying my national debt, great grandchildren. Buhahaha.
