 Hai

HowW cOme people on ANT ARTICA dont fell off earth when they are befcause its on the botoom of aerth and upside down on earth why. dont they fall off the earth i.....sthink.... they should like fall off the eath because its on the very bottom and they woul fall.. i think maybe thats why ant Artica is the least most popluatde country not cuzs its cold but its on the fall half of the earth and when people go there they fall off into space and cant breathe and die. not becuase its cold. and i think the past Conservative administretion covers this up so that they still get people trying to go to ant ARTICa for the money they hva e to pay in the airlines and they just dont tell people they will die when they go there cuz they just are money hungry pigs even they dont care about lifes of they own people!!!!!! i dont even think many animal s live there exaprt maybe the penguins but like. they must have some special way to not fall since they live there.... maybe there feet grip the earth really tight and that enables them to stay put. but if thats is so dont you think the blood would rush to their heads and that would be bad??? guhh whatthe @#*% does anyone have any answers? i cant wrap my head around this crazy geography .. maybe penguins dont have nay blood so they can do that i think obama should invent a way to grip thje under side of anta Artica so humans can safe travle across the frozen tundra and not breathe to death in space becuase we could colonize ant ARTica and that would help spread out the human populashiun and would help world hunger in america. one thing i thoughtg of why it is antartica ppl dont fall is because like... when you go over the earth "god" rotatttes it for you so you always seem like ur on the flat side like us in amaerca so people in antartica dont feel repressed by the people in america who made the earth not upside down for ONLY THEM but ignored ant ARTICA... god americans are so greedy im so glad im not one and im a canadaiun. but even the dumb amaericans make fun of canada becuase they just WISH they were nt greedy like us like in dumb south park they make fun of us becuase of the wobble heads and the movie in south park movie making the world fight......i bet if we all just lived in ant artica the world would be a better place since we would all be upside down and we would actually THINK about Others and not just ignore them becuase WE arent upside down. but with that EVERYONE would be so it would be even. and we could probly even melt the ice there and plant flowers and make it absolutly butifull for the whole world. WE WOULD BE ONE NATION UNDER ANTARTICA all for one and one for all and we’d all get along because of the upside down and we would love each other and our children... but it would be weirrd becuase when we gave birth to shildren upside down, when they come out of the stomach of the mom they would have no grippers on their feet that obama invited so that we can not fall off the earth and the babies would like,,,, hit ther heads on the ceiling since they they came out of the stomach they would fall, but falling is going toward the roof on antartica so they would hit the roof and die.. so we couldent re pro duse..idk maybe this wouldent be a very good idea but i just wish antarTICA wasent upside down if it werent the peguins would live with us and the world wouldent be greedy like america and best of all they wouldent make fun of CANADIA because of the stupid stuff U.S. is.....so please can anyone say why this is?????? i’ve always wondered since i was baby why its upsidde down and why

 Hai

Canada’s image lies in tatters. It is now to climate what Japan is to whaling From the uK Guardian

When you think of Canada, which qualities come to mind? The world’s peacekeeper, the friendly nation, a liberal counterweight to the harsher pieties of its southern neighbour, decent, civilised, fair, well-governed? Think again. This country’s government is now behaving with all the sophistication of a chimpanzee’s tea party. So amazingly destructive has Canada become, and so insistent have my Canadian friends been that I weigh into this fight, that I’ve broken my self-imposed ban on flying and come to Toronto.

So here I am, watching the astonishing spectacle of a beautiful, cultured nation turning itself into a corrupt petro-state. Canada is slipping down the development ladder, retreating from a complex, diverse economy towards dependence on a single primary resource, which happens to be the dirtiest commodity known to man. The price of this transition is the brutalisation of the country, and a government campaign against multilateralism as savage as any waged by George Bush.

Until now I believed that the nation that has done most to sabotage a new climate change agreement was the United States. I was wrong. The real villain is Canada. Unless we can stop it, the harm done by Canada in December 2009 will outweigh a century of good works.

In 2006 the new Canadian government announced it was abandoning its targets to cut greenhouse gases under the Kyoto protocol. No other country that had ratified the treaty has done this. Canada was meant to have cut emissions by 6% between 1990 and 2012. Instead they have already risen by 26%.

It is now clear that Canada will refuse to be sanctioned for abandoning its legal obligations. The Kyoto protocol can be enforced only through goodwill: countries must agree to accept punitive future obligations if they miss their current targets. But the future cut Canada has volunteered is smaller than that of any other rich nation. Never mind special measures; it won’t accept even an equal share. The Canadian government is testing the international process to destruction and finding that it breaks all too easily. By demonstrating that climate sanctions aren’t worth the paper they’re written on, it threatens to render any treaty struck at Copenhagen void.

After giving the finger to Kyoto, Canada then set out to prevent the other nations striking a successor agreement. At the end of 2007, it singlehandedly blocked a Commonwealth resolution to support binding targets for industrialised nations. After the climate talks in Poland in December 2008, it won the Fossil of the Year award, presented by environmental groups to the country that had done most to disrupt the talks. The climate change performance index, which assesses the efforts of the world’s 60 richest nations, was published in the same month. Saudi Arabia came 60th. Canada came 59th.

In June this year the media obtained Canadian briefing documents which showed the government was scheming to divide the Europeans. During the meeting in Bangkok in October, almost the entire developing world bloc walked out when the Canadian delegate was speaking, as they were so revolted by his bullying. Last week the Commonwealth heads of government battled for hours (and eventually won) against Canada’s obstructions. A concerted campaign has now begun to expel Canada from the Commonwealth.

In Copenhagen next week, this country will do everything in its power to wreck the talks. The rest of the world must do everything in its power to stop it. But such is the fragile nature of climate agreements that one rich nation – especially a member of the G8, the Commonwealth and the Kyoto group of industrialised countries – could scupper the treaty. Canada now threatens the wellbeing of the world.

Why? There’s a simple answer: Canada is developing the world’s second largest reserve of oil. Did I say oil? It’s actually a filthy mixture of bitumen, sand, heavy metals and toxic organic chemicals. The tar sands, most of which occur in Alberta, are being extracted by the biggest opencast mining operation on earth. An area the size of England, comprising pristine forests and marshes, will be be dug up – unless the Canadians can stop this madness. Already it looks like a scene from the end of the world: the strip-miners are creating a churned black hell on an unimaginable scale.

To extract oil from this mess, it needs to be heated and washed. Three barrels of water are used to process one barrel of oil. The contaminated water is held in vast tailings ponds, some so toxic that the tar companies employ people to scoop dead birds off the surface. Most are unlined. They leak organic poisons, arsenic and mercury into the rivers. The First Nations people living downstream have developed a range of exotic cancers and auto-immune diseases.

Refining tar sands requires two to three times as much energy as refining crude oil. The companies exploiting them burn enough natural gas to heat six million homes. Alberta’s tar sands operation is the world’s biggest single industrial source of carbon emissions. By 2020, if the current growth continues, it will produce more greenhouse gases than Ireland or Denmark. Already, thanks in part to the tar mining, Canadians have almost the highest per capita emissions on earth, and the stripping of Alberta has scarcely begun.

Canada hasn’t acted alone. The biggest leaseholder in the tar sands is Shell, a company that has spent millions persuading the public that it respects the environment. The other great greenwasher, BP, initially decided to stay out of tar. Now it has invested in plants built to process it. The British bank RBS, 70% of which belongs to you and me (the government’s share will soon rise to 84%), has lent or underwritten £8bn for mining the tar sands.

The purpose of Canada’s assault on the international talks is to protect this industry. This is not a poor nation. It does not depend for its economic survival on exploiting this resource. But the tar barons of Alberta have been able to hold the whole country to ransom. They have captured Canada’s politics and are turning this lovely country into a cruel and thuggish place.

Canada is a cultured, peaceful nation, which every so often allows a band of Neanderthals to trample over it. Timber firms were licensed to log the old-growth forest in Clayaquot Sound; fishing companies were permitted to destroy the Grand Banks: in both cases these get-rich-quick schemes impoverished Canada and its reputation. But this is much worse, as it affects the whole world. The government’s scheming at the climate talks is doing for its national image what whaling has done for Japan.

I will not pretend that this country is the only obstacle to an agreement at Copenhagen. But it is the major one. It feels odd to be writing this. The immediate threat to the global effort to sustain a peaceful and stable world comes not from Saudi Arabia or Iran or China. It comes from Canada. How could that be true?

 Hai

This forum is so dead because there are many who have very thin skins and get easily offended and then complain and people get banned.

Therefore, all you have left are threads about:

Whats your favorite color?

Help, my gecko is choking!

Why do I feel funny in the morning?

And even more mind numbing topics.

 Hai

The reason penguins do not fall off is that they are birds. They consume an extremely high-calorie fatty diet so that they can flap their wings and stay up. They just want you to THINK they can’t fly. it’s all a huge penguin conspiracy, designed to make penguin hunters fall off the bottom of the earth.

Canadians should never try to go to Antarctica. Even before they get there, like around the Falkaland Islands or so, They’re upside down enough that when they talk the top half of their head will fall off when they talk.

Also, there is not a volcano in Antarctica that shoots magma into the air. There is simply a hole in the earth that a lot of stuff falls out of.

Hope this clears up any confusion.

Woah woah woah!!! When the heck did this turn into the Komodo Dragon Forum!!!
I think Im extremely offended and will have to report you all to the forum and get you all banned.
*Skin bleeds from being so thin...and probably from all them canadian toxic chemicals evaporating and causing acidic rainwater globally*

*chuckles* Ok, but seriously, you guys crack me up. Though the sandy tar mining does not. Them and Monsanto....need to drown in their own toxic cra...err...creations. Yeah. Thats it. Creations. Deadly, planet killing for personal profit...Guh. Must focus on positive things!!! Like Flowers and snakes and purty reptiles. *breathes in deep and is glad for the ocean breeze and fog pushing the pollution away*

Man...we sure have lots of soap boxes round here.
