The Greenhouse Effect; Global Warming!

Global Warming is unstoppable and inevitable.

We have no idea if we're too late to reverse it - we probably are, and the only action that could effectively reverse it would cost trillions and trillions of dollars.

Nuclear weapons are limited to "responsible powers". They are used purely as a deterrent, and the thought of any action of nuclear attack of civilians is somewhat unlikely now.

Tactical nukes are being developed which are nowhere near powerful enough to cause nuclear winter, merely wipe out regiments in a battle-zone.

Everyone is too scared to use nukes. Global warming is an inevitable fact of life.

I think the biggest threat is the actions of humans and so by the actions of humans we've only gone and hurried up "the inevitable" process of the greenhouse effect...

Nuclear holocause could also cause global warming and increase global temperatures.

So those that survive nuclear holocaust would eventually be killed by the global warming.

Global warming could also kill everyone without nuclear holocaust.

Since Global warming kills all either way it is the bigger threat.

First there is only a chance that a nuclear weapon will ever be fired while global warming is actually happening around us. Nuclear weapons are mainly used to intimidate and are seen as the last of the last resorts.

Also how is global warming and ozone depletion BS? we can see the effects now as we live. Whether or not it is man's fault it is happening is another matter (and another debate going on lol), but it will still affect, we are not immune.

To see evidence of the ozone depletion and global warming just look at the statistics in the polar regions. The Ice caps are the smallest they have ever been in what we know of and keep melting without ever refreezing. There is also an increase in radiation coming through the ozone "holes" which if it spreads can cause to us in very short amount of time. Infact you can see it even now, Skin cancer rates of increased exponentially in the last 10 years or so.

I believe out of the 2, GW is more likely to be the winner. However, I think it's more than this that will end this current civilisation, namely, economics, terrorism, resources, GW, freedom, to name a few. This is just a civilisation in a long line of civilisations

Global Warming keeps on going like the Energizer Bunny, each day, 24/7. But a nuclear holocaust is just an alleged theory. Have we found weapons of mass destruction in Iraq? Of course we haven't! But proven, accurate scientific studies show that global warming is taking a toll on everyday life every single day! We NEED to stop this global warming threat!

nuclear weapons are instanteous.
fallout is more faster than warming.
warming may/may not be true.
greenhouse effect may/ may not trigger tragedy.
a mushroom cloud leaves no doubt.

I think that we're entering an age of nuclear weopons and this will certainly lead to our own demise.

the ozone depleting, global warming, is bs first of all, and second will take much longer to effect us than our own cataclysmic anhilation.

The global warming scare will disappear within a decade...

not specifically due to the nuclear holocaust (winter! :P)

Nuclear Holocaust moreso than global warming. Sure we have more storms at this point in time, especially in the US of A. However, it should be noted, for America particularly, that storms are cyclical, for example the heavy snows and icestorms being recieved across the midwest and eastern coast.

Also, in cse of Global Warming we will have time to prepare, and perform that uniquely human function of an innovative quick fix for a rapidly mounting concerrn. I also believe that the elite, at the very least, and not including survival nuts or those living in elevated positions, would be able to avoid the immediate repercussions of global warming and start anew so to speak.

A growing number of nations are discovering nuclear arms, and standing in defiance of the Proliferation Treaties. When everyone in a pissing contest is given a big gun, the outcome is almost assured....

The affects of nuclear explosions are measured and real, unlike the human kind generated global warming myth.

To the extent the earth's climate naturally changes, human kind will change with it and adapt.

I bet most global warming followers do not remember the last human generated globe threatening disaster predicted by the environmentalists.
