        it's about a 10k run around, great great run.

        after the first few storms, it looked like the weak and rotten trees were darwined out of the mix but now it seems the repeated wind exposure has weakened every tree.......

        it's a mess..

            If you're in charge of arranging such things, could you please hold off another century or two.
            OK tandfman, I asked around and they said there is no way they can hold off for 200 years. Don't quote me on this but the're talking about sending in the horsemen when Hillary gets elected

                for sure toxic emissions and pollution by humans is bad news, there are too many people out there, too much concrete and factories....

                that said, is global warming caused by greenhouse gases such as methane and co2 really bad? you know the human beast tends to get an idea and then gather the facts that support their hypothesis... right now, very few are looking at the positives that could result from an overall warming......

                growth world wide in production

                from the above sites you will see that agricultural production in nearly all countries is up over the past 15 years, and not by a little but a lot...

                india is feeding itself, china is feeding itself....

                could an increase in co2 lead to an increase in organic biomass....???

                Based on history, however, global warming is likely to be positive for most of mankind while the additional carbon, rain, and warmth should also promote plant growth that can sustain an expanding world population. Global change is inevitable; warmer is better; richer is healthier.

                    Ah, don't ya love spin? Who cares if the polar caps melt and flood every seaport in the world? Who cares if entire species are wiped out due to ecological change; we were headed that way in the next big macrocycle anyway - so what's 50,000 years, give or take? In geological time, that's just the blink of an eye anyway!!!

                      Better think about moving, t'nut. With the highest point in FL being 375', when the oceans rise 40' feet or so after the ice all melts about 80% of FL will be under water.

                        My lot will go early. I have a peak elevation of about 10' ASL. Time to add on a 3rd floor?

                            I hear there are at least eight Hooters franchises in Orlando alone. We gotta save 'em . . .
