Tallest wave ever recorded

Hurricane Ivan generated a wave more than 90 feet (27 metres) high - thought to be the tallest and most intense ever measured - scientists have revealed.

It would have dwarfed a 10-storey building and had the power to snap a ship in half - but never reached land.

You may be wondering why i am posting this on a site about terrorism ?

the answer is simple . to ignore global warming , to think purely in the terms of self , my car , my job , my air conditioning in my view is an act of terrorism at least equal to the barbaric acts committed by those we call terrorists

this type of report will sadly only continue to get worse

what if the earth is just going through warming cycles and cooling cycles like it always has?

Not saying we dont impact the enviroment, just saying we may not be the root cause of all evil. There were no SUV's before the last Ice Age...

Nobody has said the last ice age was due to Mankinds abuse of the planet .. anyway

interesting thought G apart from the fact that 99 % of the worlds scientists disagree with you . and these are the people in the position to know

but even if you refuse to accept the opinion of the smartest people on the planet .. it is one hell of a gamble to take for your children
dont you think ?

they have never been able to come out with hard science, not even theory, only hypothisis on the impact they think we are having. I just wonder if the scientific community are being a bit egotistical in thinking that we can have that dramatic of an effect on a planet that has been around billions of years. Especially when all of this "Global Warming" has only been happening for about 80-90 years.

And it seems a little too coincidental that this is comming about, and oh yeah, by the way, we also saw that this exact same stuff happned about 10,000 years ago... but that time it was because of natural ecological shifts, but THIS time, its because of EVIL SUV's

just tryin to push your buttons

I think you need to do some research on what scientists are really saying rather then saying they are not coming up with any clear hard facts .. they are ... and plenty of them

i will just pick up one point .. SUV gas consumption or in simple terms fossil fuel consumption

A new study of the effects of global warming on oceans by researchers at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California, San Diego contains the first clear scientific evidence that the indisputable rise in global mean temperatures called global warming can only be the result of greenhouse gas emissions from the burning of fossil fuels.

Skeptics - including the Bush Administration which has always maintained that global warming science is uncertain - have up until now insisted that evidence of warming could not be connected only to greenhouse gas emissions because climate change is 'natural', i.e. not human caused so nothing economic has to change. Given the complexity of climate cycles, they argued that climate change science confused the effects of volcanism, celestial positioning or variable solar activity.

Skeptics have always been a very small minority of scientists studying climate change and most skeptics have been funded by fossil fuel business, but their minority opinion has been used to confuse the public and paralyze efforts to reduce greenhouse gas production.

The evidence derived by American scientists using powerful computer models to study data from the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration may be able to squash the skeptics:

“The debate about whether there is a global warming signal now is over, at least for rational people,”


so which is it , irational , an oil company executive or a believer in the world of Bush G ? :o)

more seriously . this is just a pointer to show how it is now scientific fact in the US , many nations accepted this yeats ago .. but their politicians were not in the pocket of the oil money .. so it was easier for them to see the truth

ps .. my reply was less technical and therefore more readable .. if you really want the scientific proof of the connection between fosil fuels and the state of the planet i will be glad to oblige but it is very heavy reading
