Default HAARP

This factor may blow all other man induced ones out of the water. Here's a link to a few articles about HAARP. Way to much in the way of possiblities to comment on. If you're interested please do some research. I've listened to 4 hour radio shows with three experts, two of which were at one time if not still active in the research there. There are many things that could be good and many more that they DAARPA will not discuss.

and here's the link to the official HAARP website.

Alright, bad research on the forum by me. A moderator may close this one if he/she wants it.

Interesting info about HAARP.

Hmmm...I wonder if they could turn the ionosphere into a giant movie screen.... I just hope they don't show 15 minutes worth of Coming Attractions.

Well, I think we all should contribute and do what we can do (recycle, conserve, stop littering, stop polluting, etc.)to save 'Mother Earth,' but I have this sinking feeling that we're already past the point of no return.

She doesn't need saving, we do, if we expect to be a viable species a century from now.

it's a runaway train that's there's no stopping.

As far as the species, the inevitable world chaos of nature's doing and/or a nuclear war of our own doing will leave only a remnant. This will usher the second coming of Messiah and a new age of spiritual enlightement, as is prophesized.

Maybe.

I think it's only a matter of time before nature decides we've hit our peak acceptable population.
Eigther a natural disaster(s) will occur, or we'll end up fighting ourselves for resources. I give it till 2040 or so.

I agree -- we're trashing our world with pollutants, our glaciers are disappearing, we have little or no snow, our summers are too hot and all of this is due to human influences in one way or another. Our attitudes and indifference will play a sigificant role in global warming, if not for us, for those that follow us...

Battlefield 2142 pretty much sums it up- A pan-asian russian/etc coalition will vie for dominance of the few fertile spots in europe and asia against a western european league of countries such as germany, and they'll fight in giant mechanized walkers and hover tanks with advanced weaponry.

Or a lot of us starve to death and we have to start living more modest life styles... yeah... or we go poof into the history books of some other species.

Still no snow here this season, not only that, the temperatures are abnormally high for this time of year. I expect a freezing cold february though, this can't go on forever.
