[QUOTE]Originally posted by glassman: [QB] Andrew, this quote from the page? [b]If all the icecaps in the world were to melt, sea level would rise about 60-75 meters (200-250 feet). This could not result from modern human activities, and from any realistic cause would take thousands of years to occur.[/b] he has no "backup" for it..he just say s it as if he knows what he's talking about and offers no scientific evidence whatsoever... the fact is? they are melting, and they are melting (it's measurable right now) much faster than he says. the fact is that every gallon of gas releases more than 19lbs of CO<sub>2</sub> into the atmosphere... let's put it into an easier to manage format: it's about (min) 750lbs of CO<sub>2</sub> per barrel of oil.. this is dependent on the oil, (where it comes from) and how it's used. we (US)use about 20,000,000 bbls a day... the world uses about 80,000,000 bbls a day... the world is producing from oil alone about 60,000,000,000 pounds of CO<sub>2</sub> PER DAY... to give you an idea of what that is? the net annual growth of US timber according to the USDA, which already has mortality subtracted out, totaled 612 million m3 (21.6 billion ft3) in 1991... on average? dried lumber ( that's useable so it's not completeley dry, but we can use that) is about 36 pounds per cubic foot... so in one year, the US produced about 777 billion pounds of wood... 777divided by 60 is 12.95 days.... in other words? we produce about the same CO<sub>2</sub> worldwide by weight every 13 days as we do all the wood in the US in a year... and we produce alot of wood... how can you say you don't think that would have an effect... considering that doesn't take in coal and natural gas? i'd say that people who don't beleive it are trying really hard to pretend...
