Well if we assume that global warming does exist, and say it is natural, do you think we should do something about it?

Taking things off the planet can be even more dangerous.

Imagine a ball revolving around another ball, u add or subtract from it`s mass, and the distance between the 2 balls will change.

A simple term to say that the earth within it`s atmostphere is a closed system. It`s weight is constant, apart from the things that drop into the atmosphere from outside.

U change the weight of the closed earth system and it`s orbit will change.

Similarly, if 1 half of the earth contains over half of it`s population, the shape of the earth changes. Instead of a ball revolving, you can picture u`r tennis ball spinning with a bit of chewing gum stuck to it.

All these things can change the way the earth rotates about the sun, which can change alot of things climate wize.

It`s also mankind`s arrogance to think that the earth is theirs. The lifespan of mankind as a whole is but a finite part of it`s history. It`ll be here long before the race has gone, barring anything catastrophic. And the likes of the ant and coc-roach will outlive the fittest of us.

A coc-roach can survive in u`r neuclear waste

^ Could be true...unless the earth gets destoryed with humans on it, then who would have been the last surviving species I ask you?

Im sure if the Earth was destroyed the resulting blast would destroy the space station. Not only that, even if it didnt destroy it they would float to where? No more gravity to keep them in orbit.

I'm pretty sure that's not true, as the equation for the acceleration due to gravity is a = MG/r*r, and as the mass of the sun is a hell of a lot bigger (over 300000 times bigger), any mass change of the earth is going to be negligible.

How exactly would the earth just disappear? and they'd probably end up in the gravity field of venus or mars, if not the sun's.
