A new study suggests the Mayan civilization might have collapsed due to environmental disasters:

"'These models suggest that as ecosystems were destroyed by mismanagement or were transformed by global climatic shifts, the depletion of agricultural and wild foods eventually contributed to the failure of the Maya sociopolitical system,' writes environmental archaeologist Kitty Emery of the Florida Museum of Natural History in the current Human Ecology journal."

As we move towards solving the climate crisis, we need to remember the consequences to civilizations that refused to take environmental concerns seriously.

If you haven’t read already read it, take a look at Jared Diamond’s book, Collapse.

:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes: More overreaction to their made up crisis. What exactly was the Mayan's carbon footprint? Where were the cars and factories that caused the "global climatic shifts"? Why won't you go away, no matter how much we ignore you? Why can't I put a roll eyes icon on this message?

The mayan civilization I believe did collapse due to environmental collapse - they did not have modern tech - did not rotate crops or have modern chemical fertilizers to replenish damaged soil. But to claim that they caused climate change is just plain silly. Besides - History shows - when the climate warms - populations and through it - civilizations BOOM. :) It's cold weather that destroys civilization.

The Mayan, Olmec, and many other cvilizations of the South American area, colllapsed mainly from drought. The evidence in in the ancient water ditches that they left behind. They kept getting longer and longer as they tried to reach dwindeling supplies that were farther away. Not Glowballs Warming.

I was reading more of Gore's delusions today.

William Anderson is one of the best watchdogs of Gore and his ilk.


Gore’s sustainable fascism


Posted: November 7th, 2008 by Thomas L. Knapp
Author: William L. Anderson

“The voters have spoken, and so has Al Gore. It seems that the United States has no choice but to outlaw the burning of all coal and pretty much lay a chain saw to most of the energy industries and embrace something akin to the Great Leap Forward. … In his ‘re-invention’ of capitalism, Gore reaches back to the socialistic arguments made years ago by Barry Commoner, who claimed that capitalism had not collapsed under its self-contradictions because those dastardly capitalists had managed to degrade the environment and keep capitalism alive until the environment struck back and the whole thing came apart.” (11/07/08)

The Thuggery of Al Gore
Author: William L. Anderson

In Mario Puzo’s book, The Godfather, Vito Corleone is able to rise to power by intimidation and sometimes murder. As Puzo describes it, Corleone made sure that his competitors in distributing olive oil (yes, Vito did do olive oil, among a few other things) had a few problems, like having their delivery trucks robbed, oil dumped in the streets, and whatever else it took to convince his rivals that they should not compete with him.

The Godfather, of course, is a novel (later made into a movie). It is eminently readable, but a novel all the same. What happened this past week, however, was not from a novel, but rather from the mouth of the former U.S. vice president and the latest Nobel Peace Prize winner:

LONDON, England (CNN) – Former vice president and environmental campaigner Al Gore has urged young people to protest against new coal-fired power plants that don't use carbon capture and storage technology.

Speaking at the opening plenary session of the Clinton Global Initiative Annual Meeting in New York, Gore said: "If you're a young person looking at the future of this planet and looking at what is being done right now, and not done, I believe we have reached the stage where it is time for civil disobedience to prevent the construction of new coal plants that do not have carbon capture and sequestration

Guess AlBore is trying to up his Carbon Credits Biz...:rolleyes:

Look for President Elect Obama to create the Department of Global Climate Change.

Is there any truth to the rumor that the DIMS want to change the Dept. of Education to the Department Of Right Think?:confused::eek:

If libs want to say that climate change destroyed the Mayans, then they are only proving the point that climate change is a natural process on earth.

That would also mean we're all screwed.

And? Are you saying this is the first island that is barely above sea level ever in the history of the world to face going under? And that the only possible reason for it must be 3v1l h00/\/\@nz and their carbon footprints? And the UN is a reliable source of data? The last one alone almost completely negates the article.

Very interesting. The north pole is melting, slowly but surely, whether you like it or not. But Al Gore is simply using the natural global warming and cooling of the earth to create environmentalist zombies. Pollution is bad, but volcanic eruptions that happen frequently under the ocean release far more CO2 than any country. So unless you stop all volcanos, global warming will happen. Hence the end of the ice age.

I also do not think global warming destroyed the Mayans...why would it only affect them? The whole issue is way to blown up. Of course make technologies as clean, efficient, and environmentally friendly as possible...but we cannot live in a bubble; not everything will be clean.

A very good point. I completely agree. The ice caps may be melting, but that doesn't mean everything is caused by 'deadly' global warming. Many islands disappear over time.
