Global warming and rising sea levels article in the New York Times

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/03/14/science/earth/study-rising-sea-levels-a-risk-to-coastal-states.html?_r=3

An interesting piece in the Times, talks about the accelarating growth of the rise of sea levels. Just another one of multple factors that might add to the total enegy we need to invest to simply remain "afloat" in the future.

The Definitive Global Climate Change (aka Global Warming) Thread -- General Discussion and Questions

Paraphrasing Aaron Moyer from "The Definitive Firearms Thread" - I am creating this thread so that questions can be asked freely, myths can be dispelled, and people can make the best decision for themselves about what, if anything, they should do to prepare for climate change. I will try to provide some general primer materials to demistify the science and explain what climate change means as clearly as possible. I look forward to questions and interactions with anyone in the community who is interested or curious about the subject.

Tinfoil vs. Incontrovertible Science...

On the CM forums, I have attempted to engage the community in polite but logical discussion on peak oil and man made climate change but have been treated as if I have tinfoil on my head. As I am not a scientist by trade, I have not pressed the need for further discussion here, until now.  A distinguished scientist of 67 years has resigned from a society he was a lifelong member of because of the rampant corruption and the refusal to broker honest debate in that environment. Well if he can press the issue, then perhaps it is time for me to do so as well...

Limited Uranium Supply ?

According to the World Nuclear Association, there is effectively an unlimited supply of uranium to power our current and future nuclear power plants. They say that between the use of new technology "breeder' reactor and expanded exploration effort, we can supply a significant portion of future energy needs. Until now, I have accepted the CM site consensus that we have a peak uranium fast appraoching that is similar to peal oil.

I wonder if their conclisions are valid ?

The Nuge speaks to Alex Jones On Guns, Climate Change, The Government, and many other topics.

I don't know whether this has been posted here before, but I just finished watching these, they're Ted Nugent discussing some of the issues facing America today, and things that perhaps we can do to try to help out. Now they're likely not to everyone's taste, but many of the things he's discussing and activities that can be done, are things which are equally important to community building. If nothing else he's a very inspirational speaker.

Intersection of Global Warming and Peak Oil

Clearly pollution is bad and needs to be limited by some means.  It is especially unfair for industry (or anyone) to create particulate emissions or pollute rivers and not pay for this damage.  These societal costs (externalities) need to be captured and paid by the perpetrator instead of society at large.

That being said I have always been quite skeptical of man made global warming caused by CO2.  The reasons for my feelings are numerous:
