    Probably more than one Roscoe.

    HERE

    How many active volcanoes are there on earth?

    "There are about 1500 potentially active volcanoes worldwide, aside from the continuous belt of volcanoes on the ocean floor. About 500 of these have erupted in historical time. Many of these are located along the Pacific Rim in what is known as the 'Ring of Fire.' In the U.S., volcanoes in the Cascade Range and Alaska (Aleutian volcanic chain) are part of the Ring, while Hawaiian volcanoes form over a 'hot spot' near the center of the Ring."

    And let us not forget the Bush Fires, controlled and otherwise.

    Do not regret growing older. It is a privilege denied to many.

    They signed the Kyoto Protocol in 1992

    23 years ago

    Has anything changed since then?

    No
    Its still cold in winter, and no hotter than it was in the 1970's.

    Oh yes its no longer Global warming its Climate Change!

    Only in some places? Hmmmmmmmmm.

    I wonder if it could be the coral based island sinking?

    Urm, what about the hundreds of thousands of scientists who didn't sign the petition!?

    Which raises the question ”How many of these layabouts are there with their nose in the trough?”

    Uh huh, abandon all your technology and go live in the bush somewhere. If you don't think you owe scientists and their theories anything think again.

    Not engaging in the climate change debate with you again though. Eventually I recognise a dead horse when I see it.

    It just shows how dodgy this stuff is.
    Nothing dodgy about an organisation putting its docs into archives. You said you couldn't find evidence of where the carbon trading money is going so I provided one well-known example. The Christchurch City Council is real. British Gas is real. $3 million is real.

    Here is more: Dunedin City Council Forests yielded $6 million selling carbon credits in 2013.

    Personally I think all the problems we have are caused by population.
    As in too many of us.
    Pollution, extinction of other species, unemployment, the lot.

    Cut it by at least 9/10ths and it would all go away.
