Has anyone read this book Six Degrees: Our Future on a Hotter Planet  by Mark Lynas or seen the National Geographic movie about it? What are your thoughts and opinions concerning the it?

Same as my opinion on the book of morman. Its not true.
The sins I don't commit are largely due to the weakness of my limbs.

About the book of mormon? lol not really evidence but for me its rather the lack of evidence from such a small sample size that makes such a drastic conclusion.

Yes I did see the NatGeo movie the other night.  I think there is truth to it. 

I also find it amazing how many large fires there around the world.  Lord Have Mercy.

Anyway, if the floods come, We're up in the mountains.  In fact, if the NYC area gets hit with a very strong hurricane or some sort of large storm surge or tidal wave it's expected that most of Long Island and NYC will be under water.  So we in the Red Cross have contingency plans to receive the downstate people up here to house & feed them in shelters.

Hey Guys---


The Book of Mormon wasn't at all based on scientific evidence, but I believe this book is? One does have to wonder about the loose screws of the latest weather...

Ware might this place be? Woodstock? :laugh:
Excellence of character, then, is a state concerned with choice, lying in a mean relative to us, this being determined by reason and in the way in which the man of practical wisdom would determine it. Now it is a mean between two vices, that which depends on excess and that which depends on defect.
