Zero sum? Should we start financing carbon credits now from China so we won't have to actually pay for them after Armageddon?
If we could take all the shit produced in china and put it through a central processing plant, there would be enough gasses to power the whole country and thus reduce the footprint by a huge amount Amusing yes but it is not far off reality. And then watch the movie "Soylent Green"

I'm betting on disease. But a nuke exchange would be just the ticket.

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and that’s what I intend to reverse.

I'll buy the natural selection process option of disease. Mother Nature already knows how to deal with this, and will do so at "just the right time." I think we can count on it. Something living today may survive, and it may be human or, more likely, not.

But we have scientists and doctors/researchers who intervene so should we shoot them first as they are interfering with natural selection?

Given the number of people who left Los Angeles for good after this month's earthquake(s), it is apparent that the scientists will continue to be ignored and are therefore, safe from preventative actions.

Post 18 breakdown:
  1. There was an earthquake in the Los Angeles area this month.
  2. It was considered minor.
  3. The people who live there seem to believe that all subsequent earthquakes will be minor as well or they would leave.
  4. They didn't leave.
  5. If/when there is a major earthquake following all of the minor earthquakes, a large portion of the population may perish.
  6. Mother Nature will have accomplished the task of population adjustment mentioned several times earlier in this thread.
  7. The scientists who warn of the big earthquake, by virtue of being ignored, need not be shot.

Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?
