Studies: Global Warming Polling

Actually what I've been told through climate circles is that this group is serious scientists measuring actual ice thickness. They used the AGW band wagon to get funding but they are not warmers themselves.
As Gary Lloyd said, "When the government’s boot is on your throat, whether it is a left boot or a right boot is of no consequence."

Here is what chaffs my Arse. We are forced to listen to Hucksters and Charlatans, such as Algore and James Hansen, carry on about the dangers of this 'so called' AGW. Yet, there are ever present dangers, which are REAL, and we should be concerned about. And I am talking about NEOs(Near Earth Objects), or NEAs(Near Earth Asteroids) that are constantly buzzing in and around our earth system, which includes this planet and the moon. Why aren't they worred about a REAL danger such as this?

Could it be because they know most citizens can readily perceive the 'seen', but not the 'unseen'? Could it be that they are just misled? Or could it mean that they are using this subject as a means to profit from it, at other's expense?

My point is: there are far greater dangers, which we should be prepared to expect. The returning ice age is one, but clearly there is another, that can have more than devastating impact on humans today, in this technological age. And I am talking about the threat of Impactors. We tend to pass them off as not worthy of our concern, because they are abstract and unseen.

Yet throughout history, we have had many events which have gone unreported, because at the time, the world population was only a fraction what it is today, AND communication, along with science, was not what it is now. Even The Dark Ages were almost certainly the result of an Impactor, which wrecked havoic on the world climate. I recommend reading this article, if you have not already. Not only the direct results of the Impactor, but the ensuing plague, starvation, and other effects, result from such an calamity. Just think of this happening to a planet housing billions of humans.

What if this should happen again? So why are we worried about an issue that really is good for us, not detrimental to our well-being?

Get this, from yesterdays, March 20th, SpaceWeather.com.

Quote:ASTEROID FLYBY: On March 20th, asteroid 2009 DO111 flew past Earth about 288,000 miles away--just beyond the orbit of the Moon. About the size of a football field, the dangerous space rock was visible in backyard telescopes as it raced through the constellation Cassiopeia shining like a 13th magnitude star. March has been a busy month for flybys with at least nine asteroids passing within a million miles of Earth. Stay tuned for more.

Potentially Hazardous Asteroids (PHAs) are space rocks larger than approximately 100m that can come closer to Earth than 0.05 AU. None of the known PHAs is on a collision course with our planet, although astronomers are finding new ones all the time.

On March 20, 2009 there were 1043 potentially hazardous asteroids(known).

March 2009 Earth-asteroid encounters:
Asteroid-----------Date(UT)----Miss Distance----Mag.----Size
2009 DS43---------Mar. 1----------6.9 LD------------18------32 m
2009 DD45---------Mar. 2 ---------0.2 LD------------11------35 m
2009 DN4----------Mar. 3----------8.1 LD------------21------27 m
2009 EA-----------Mar. 4----------7.4 LD------------19------24 m
2009 EW----------Mar. 6-----------0.9 LD------------16-----23 m
161989 Cacus-----Mar. 7----------70.5 LD------------16-----1.7 km
2009 EH1----------Mar. 8----------1.6 LD-------------18-----12 m
2009 ET------------Mar. 9----------9.5 LD-------------21-----15 m
2009 DV43---------Mar. 10---------8.5 LD------------18-----80 m
2009 EU------------Mar. 11---------3.5 LD------------18-----21 m
1998 OR2----------Mar. 12---------69.8 LD-----------14-----3.3 km
2009 DR3----------Mar. 14---------7.2 LD-------------16-----225 m
2009 FH------------Mar. 18---------0.2 LD-------------14-----21 m


*Notes: LD means "Lunar Distance." 1 LD = 384,401 km, the distance between Earth and the Moon. 1 LD also equals 0.00256 AU. MAG is the visual magnitude of the asteroid on the date of closest approach.
