Again, a brilliant effort John, even to giving a couple of assumptions for them to pick at. You sure got the juices flowing and inspired more thinking on the subject than a lecture by Carl Sagan! As many of you know, I have sometimes written about the air pollution I have experienced in China; about standing on the 20th story balcony and being unable to see the old men playing Tai Chi in the lot below. Current TV programming reminds us of the air pollution they are currently coping with. While China continues to build another high sulphur, cheap coal burning power plant each week, it is gratifying to know that if we, a mere 6% of the worlds population would only close one more coal fired power plant, we could save mankind!

Some say there wasn't a pig to be found on Mindanow by the time Pershing left!

Yes, we have been fighting a jungle war in the Philippines since Blackjack Pershing was there before WW1.

Was also doing the same with my free hand while eating my chicken wings doc. Fortunately I did not get a chicken bone crosswise and need your advice!

It is a sobering thought when you realize our own population has doubled just since John Kennedy was killed and the WW2 population of only 148 million or so fielded a military of 16 million?

I was going to say that just doing the math in my head I came up with a population of roughly 100 trillion if there was 1 person per square meter.. There are 2,589,988 square meters in a square mile and 57,308,738 square miles of land.

But, that inexorably leads to the sewer, doesn't it?

We surely don't expect 148 trillion four hundred billion in 2400 so like the debt these things eventually control themselves.

Politicians do not deserve to be called leaders. They have to be frightened into doing anything that leadership requires. Otherwise like water, they always run down hill, choosing the easiest path.

Haven.t run the math yet Doc. Divide 70 by the percentage of yearly population growth and that tells you how many years for the population to double! Example, at 3% it doubles every 24 years. So by doubling 4 times each hundred years it would be 72 billion in a hundred years, 580 billion in 200 years, 9 trillion, 280 Billion in 300 years etc All that remains is to determine the sq. meters of land surface and finish the boolean algebra.

"We can already forecast which year there will be one person per square meter of the land mass if we use todays population growth curve."

What year would that be?

CNNs Deb Feyerick is blaming the asteroid on Global Warming.

So stand braced, John. the critics here are in unison likely to jump up and down ccreaming, "WE TOLD YOU SO, YOU SKEPTIC!!!

Or would it suffice if we simply bought indulgences (carbon credits) from the right people, or increased the cost of a KWH from 15 cents to 30 cents, or both, we would not have to fire all those miners in West Virginia!

Have you people heard of paying the Alligator to eat you last?

We can already forecast which year there will be one person per square meter of the land mass if we use todays population growth curve.

Dear Comrade Mikey,

That’s right; there is no connection between a storm and so-called global warming. Scientists theorize that storms could be become worse and more extreme, but there is very little evidence- very little is not to be confused with no evidence- that storms are any...
