    considering the size of the earth.
    then consider the amount of land .
    then consider the amount of desert.
    then consider the amount of ice.
    then consider the amount of rocks (mountain ranges , and such )
    then consider the cities.
    then consider farm land.
    after all that how much land is left for trees?

    seems to me not much.
    seems to me, considering the size of the earth land and sea mass then we have from the ground up to the limits of breathable oxygen in the sky ,we dont need many trees.

    im not say cut them down as i dont think we should. but im just wondering how much oxygen they help make and how many trees it takes to make it?

    Its not something i would like to play devils advocate with i think, it has long been known that trees et al are the filters for the air we breathe, destroying them is akin to smoking - means nothing until you get cancer then its too late. Personally i feel we should certainly put an end to deforestation immediately, its not like they are replanting as they go, just removing them is foolhardy in the extreme and it could be that which bites us all in the arse one day.

    Global warming is unexpected rise in the average temp. of earth's atmosphere and oceans.actually This is unexpected changes in temperature.Temperature increased so high,which affects our climatic condition.The main reason behind this is Air pollution and basically chlorofluorocarbon carbon and this causes Ozone layer depletion.

    Without being too scientific, I think there's too much money in making the planet unhabitable. Nobody feels responsible, because everyone just takes a little cut in their local environment, but collectively we've lost the sense of balance in making money while keeping in mind human (and the planet's) life & health currently and in future.
    Not to be too conspiratory, but while some inventors are trying to find alternatives for engines dependent on oil, the black gold companies got enough capital to make sure that they don't lose the market. And the government seems to like getting paid on pollution.
    It's 21st century, properly funded research can do miracles but while we'd like to have better alternatives, money talks and I don't have enough of that to oppose the giants.. Hell, I've got my own little problems to take care of.

    There is oxygen from ocean plants in the atmosphere, hmmm, which some say makes up for 50 - 85% of all oxygen.

    Im not so fussed about the idea of humans causing global warming anymore as it is so difficult for even scientists to tell. It seems that there is as little evidence for GW as there is for a god having created the earth.

    I am more interested in governments looking at ways to reduce emissions in populated areas making society a more cleaner and healthier place. Not them looking at earth temparatures and contemplating whether or not little ants like us are warming the earth.

    No its a serious problem for some, others do not agree that it is affected by the population.

    I heard yesterday that the weather we are facing now is a result of the carbon footprint 10 years ago?

    I dont believe anyone could point a finger at something that may or may not have happened 10 years back

    I could say that the price of petrol today is the result of a broken drillbit 10 years ago.

    Its all smoke and mirrors.

    Have you every noticed how, in the "global warming" debate, when there's one hot summer more people say they believe and then when there's a long winter like the one we're still having, more people say it's a load of rubbish? There are 2 big problems. First, people are extrapolating from their personal experience to take a judgement on an effect that has to compare data across tens or even hundreds of years. Second, really we should call this "climate change" and not "global warming". The world's climate is so complex that even if the whole world were getting warmer, there might be some regions which actually felt colder because of changing Gulfstream or other currents.

    It is much simpler to get on with life, the climate changes, it has always changed, it is in a constant state of cyclic change.

    Davek0974, I like your stoicism. Probably right for us "little people" who just need to make a living. The problem is that this is unfortuately the attitude of too many policy makers and economic leaders who really do need to consider the situation

    It’s unfortunate when science becomes politicised and lobbyists direct the flow of funding. These factors occlude the transparent nature of science.
    Science is only the first issue. The second is statistics. Who the statisticians are and what they are told to find also influence the results. Then there are the news people that add their own spin on things. Similar to the planet, there are so many links in the chain contributing to the problem.

    With the way things are going the world will warm up further. Spring, Summer and Autumn will become even warmer. Winters I'm not so sure, open for debate.
    I guess we'll get what we deserve.
