    WE ARE IN A MENTAL RECESSION...
    First, Global Warmers say Cow gas causes Global warming, and now this...




    http://www.cnn.com/2008/TECH/science/09/19/water.crisis/index.html


    CNN: Why do we have a global water crisis?
    Barlow: The demand for fresh water in our world over the next 30 years is far outstripping the supply. Not that the water isn't somewhere on the planet still -- but we have polluted it, diverted it, allowed it to get poisoned by seawater. One way or another, we have taken accessible clean water ... and we have rendered it unusable. We take massive amounts [of water] and we irrigate the desert, where it evaporates. We're pumping groundwater all over the world far faster that it can be replenished by nature. We are actually running out of fresh, clean water everywhere in the world, including here in North America. We have to give up this myth of abundance. We have come to the limits of the planet.


    Is climate change exacerbating the problem?
    Barlow: Oh, yes. They are intricately linked. Global warming warms up massive bodies of water, which evaporate more quickly than they should. Warming is melting all the glaciers in the world. So there's no question that greenhouse gas-induced climate change is impacting water.


    I want to point out, to the brilliant minds that believe this garbage, that just because water evaporates doesn't mean it disappears!!!

    Pay attention.... It's time for a 1st grade science lesson...

    What happens when water evaporates?

    It

    Makes

    Clouds!!!!


    Can you say it with me?... Clouds are made of evaporated water!

    I knew you could!!!

    Now watch what happens....

    Clouds are formed...

    Wind blows clouds...

    Rain falls from clouds, onto the earth.. and gives us nice fresh water!!!!

    And then evaporates again into clouds!

    IT's called the WATER CYCLE!!!

    Do these so called "experts" really think we are that dumb?

    "We are losing water because it is evaporating into the atmosphere"...
    Geesh... I learned better in 1st grade!!!

    1st graders are smarter than the ones that beleive in global whining... er warming!

    I got a message for all you global whiners...

    GET A BUCKET and catch the rain!

    Better yet, GET AN EDUCATION!!!

    Let's see...global warming creates evaporation that eliminates water from our planet.

    If we didn't have global warming? Water evaporates that eliminates water from our planet. Either way, being the world is 400 quasitrillion years old, shouldn't water have been extinct 399 quasitrillion years ago? I mean, even ice evaporates!

    To quote the great Bugs Bunny... "What a Maroon" :D

    Maybe the Christian evolutionists on the other thread can chime in to tell us how God has done this using evolution :laugh:

    Global warming is making their brains disappear.

    Just thought of something....
    If Global warming is melting the glaciers...
    thus releasing the water held captive in the glaciers...
    Said water then evaporates....

    Wouldn't that ADD water to our water cycle?

    So instead of making water disappear, wouldn't Global warming increase cloud cover? And in this case, wouldn't it rain more, or in more places on the earth?

    Maybe Desserts will be blooming places....

    Hmmm..

    Maybe we should be praising God for Global warming?
    Maybe God is providing a way for the increased population to have the water they need...

    Nah... too simple!

    Since the polar ice caps are melting on Mars, is our global warming causing the evaporation of all water in our solar system? Man...we sure are a powerful species! :rolleyes:

    For those interested in a 2nd grade science answer, water on the planet in solid, liquid and gaseous form are in equilibrium with each other. That equilibrium is dependent on the temperature. When the global temperature increases, the equilibrium shifts towards the melting and evaporation direction rather than the freezing and condensing direction. In cooler areas where there is ice and water, it will mean more water. In warmer areas where there is some water and a lot of water vapour, it will mean less water.

    Well then, that would explain why all those jungles along the equator are so dry. But wait, we don't call them jungles anymore - the name has been changed to rain forest. Funny, calling such a hot dry place a rain forest.

    You are right, I should have said warm drier areas instead of warm areas with some water and a lot of water vapour.

    Hot humid areas will of course rain and also mountain ranges cause rain formation on one side of the mountain. Global warming may cause a slight decrease in water levels from increased evaporation but probably not a noticeable one in these areas, particularly where there hasn't been massive deforestation. While there will still be rain, the equillibrium of liquid to gas will shift towards the gaseous side of things resulting in increased humidity.

    Hot drier areas like most temperate inland plains with few trees where a lot of farming occurs in North America, will experience more dramatic decreases in water levels from increased evaporation.

    Throughout history different regions have gone through drouts and wet times. Climate happens with or wthout man.

    Of course there are regional variations. But when there is a general global increase whether from man or not, there will be significant impact on the equillibrium of water in its various states.

    General as in world wide? There is no evidence of such.

    The definition most people use is an increase in average global temperature. Average means that while some regions may get cooler, the globe as a whole gets warmer.

    There is plenty of evidence that the average global temperature is increasing since the beginning of these recordings in the late 1800s. Data for periods before that are estimated from trees, corals, ice cores and regional historical records.

    Climatic Research Unit: Global Temperature record

    The Climatic Research Unit is a department of the University of East Anglia in the UK. They collect data from over 3000 temperature stations throughout the globe on a monthly basis.

    The earths overall temp began cooling in 98. In the 70's scientists were screaming "Ice Age"! This so called science is as biased as BBC

    Yes that is true. The years since 98 have been among the 10 hottest years on record, but cooler than 98.

    I'm not here to convince you of the evidence, just to show it to you. Feel free to stick your fingers in your ears or cover your eyes.

    NASA - Goddard Institute for Space Studies - Surface Temperature Analysis

    NASA's analysis which also includes satellite data suggests that 2007 was on par with 1998 and lower than 2005 which they calculate to have been the hottest year on record. They also have some data on the effects of El Nino-La Nina and solar irradiation which they considered to have been in the "cooling phase" of their cycles in 2007.

    How does it explain Mars' polar caps melting? It's clearly a Milky Way issue...not a man issue.
