I always knew that global warming thing was a crock of $#!t. There were always far more politicians than scientists talking about it.

You can be sure there's no bias in this article by the way he uses "alarmist" or "alarmism" over two dozen times.

Stem cells from a child in the womb can heal organ damage in the mother's body.

http://www.lifenews.com/2016/12/12/fasc ... ms-organs/
A 2015 study published in the journal Circulation Research addressed the issue of fetal stem cells actually healing maternal organs. In this study, researchers tagged mice with a fluorescent protein that allowed the researchers to trace the flow of the fetus’s stem cells from the mother’s placenta into its heart while they induced cardiac injury to the mother.

They found that fetal stem cells directly targeted the damaged cardiac cells and fully integrated themselves into the mother’s heart.

It seemed that fetal cells sensed precise signals that allowed them to target the specific injured area.

Trump has said "nobody knows," about whether there is human caused global warming. But one thing is for sure. There has never before been 7.6 billion people on this small blue marble, all wanting to burn fossil fuels. :cry:

Think about that a while.

We should also think about the fact that this now global economy we have, is based on economic growth, and expansion. So, it is one of those darned if we do and darned if we don't things.

We are definitely in a pickle

Sure, there's going to be stuff like that to try to contradict the weight of scientific evidence. But if you own coastal property in Florida, I would still sell it as soon as you can.

I found the data below on below at: https://www.theguardian.com/environment ... ate-change

According to this research and data, until recent times, the United States has by far been the most polluting nation of all time. I suppose the attitude of industrial developing nations is "Well, you've had your day, and now we want ours."

"Historical emissions

Since carbon dioxide added to the atmosphere can stay there for centuries, historical emissions are just as important – or even more important – than current emissions. The tricky question of historical responsibility is one of the key tensions in the process of negotiating a global climate deal. The following figures from the World Resources Institute show the top 10 nations as measured by their cumulative emissions between 1850 and 2007. The US tops the list by a wide margin – though Chinese emissions have risen significantly since these data were assembled."....

1. US: 339,174 MT or 28.8%
2. China: 105,915 MT or 9.0%
3. Russia: 94,679 MT or 8.0%
4. Germany: 81,194.5 MT or 6.9%
5. UK: 68,763 MT or 5.8%
6. Japan: 45,629 MT or 3.87%
7. France: 32,667 MT or 2.77%
8. India: 28,824 MT or 2.44%
9. Canada: 25,716 MT or 2.2%
10. Ukraine: 25,431 MT or 2.2%

Below It looks like China, and (based on population growth), also India will finish us off. China has the world’s largest population (1.5 billion), followed by India (1.4 billion).

The simplest and most common way to compare the emissions of countries is to add up all the fossil fuels burned and cement produced in each nation and convert that into CO2. According to 2011 data compiled by the Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency, the top 10 emitters by this measure are:

Current CO2 emissions

1. China: 9697 million tonnes (MT) or 28.6%
2. US: 5420 MT or 16.0%
3. India: 1967 MT or 5.8%
4. Russia: 1829 MT or 5.4%
5. Japan: 1243 MT or 3.7%
6. Germany: 810 MT 2.4%
7. South Korea: 609 MT or 1.7%
8. Canada: 555 MT or 1.6%
9. Indonesia: 490 MT or 1.4%
10. Saudi Arabia: 464 MT or 1.4%
