  1. Is there any fossil evidence to show that there was less gravity? Like thinner dinosaur bones?
  2. Clean air

    The amount of evaporation outweighs the rain, so if it rains slightly more (like it did here in michigan) then the higher temperatures will evaporate it faster (also like it did here). Also, in many parts of the world, the more rain will come in at one time creating floods. What's gonna happen to the crops? Now to answer the OP: yes, it would make sense because too much CO2 is toxic.
  3. is personality caused by genes

    I heard somewhere (maybe a special on CNN) that 80% of personality is from genes, and 20% is from the environment.
  4. Safari for Windows

    I downloaded it and I really like it. Everything just looks...cooler.
  5. Habitat loss = extinctions??

    Oh, a thought just occured to me. Do you consider loss of habitat by pollution loss of habitat? Example: There's a pond that isn't destroyed, but fertilizer from a neighborhood close to it pollute it. Is that loss of habitat?
  6. Habitat loss = extinctions??

    Well, this isn't an extinction, but it is a serious decline in numbers. The eastern massasauga rattlesnake has been in decline since the 1970s when much of its wetland habitats were starting to be destroyed. It's pretty resistant to pollution, so that can't be the cause of the decline. People do kill a few, but not enough to cause this big of a decline.
  7. Global warming will change rain patters, but not necessarily increase rainfall overall. At least that's what I heard. I'll look for a source.
  8. Identify this frog (photo)

    I'm thinking it's the pool frog. Your picture fits the description of them for the most part. The only thing I can't find is the white stripe down its back. Do any of the other frogs in the pond have a white stripe? The types of frogs in the England are common frogs, common toads, natterjack toads, and pool frogs. The picture isn't of a toad, so it's either the common frog or the pool frog. And it doesn't look much like a common frog. Here's a pic of the pool frog. More info on the pool frog. And here's where I got most of the information. Edit: Nice pic, btw.
  9. Are YOU in the 98% or the 2%

    Alligator in Guatemala eating a Rum berry. <===I think I did it wrong.
  10. I wonder how the human race will die.

    If we can't get out of the solar system in the next billion years, then the sun will kill everyone.
  11. Warmest winter on record

    The last December and January were the warmest I've ever felt. February was average or slightly colder, but March is hot.
  12. http://gigascience.com/ancient_reptile_had_two_heads.htm I thought it was rather interesting.
  13. Food Chain energy pyramid

    We learned that the sun is at the bottom in school last year, and as ecoli said, its where plants get their energy from.
  14. Right now the warmth over North America is mainly because of the El Nino over the Pacific Ocean right now. There may be a connection between El Ninos and global warming, but we don't know for sure. It was like this last year, too.
  15. How you long a species survived can't define intelligence. The animals you listed have other advantages that have nothing to do with brains that would allow them to live for so long.
