Global warming is a "hot" topic these days. As lottery players, will this affect you playing the lottery?

          Why is global warming a bad thing?  Except for the super rich who have homes on islands and beach front property, who will be affected?  As for me, I think warm winters would be a good thing.  I only wish the Pilgrims had landed in Panama instead of New England.

          And don't tell me the earth will dry up!!!  Where is all that water going to go?  Pluto?  Mars?

            what they say is going to happen is that the earth will flood.the extra heat will melt the ice in the north and south poles and bury all the coasts in extra water.......

              CASH Only, my vote is yes. If the temperature is very high with high humidity and a bad air quality, people will buy fewer tickets and avoid bad pollution. It's important to finish the job in a short amount of time.

                  Global warming is ANOTHER reason to choose lump sum. How different will the world be in 30 years?

                    What global warming. No big deal. there have been tropical plants that grew in the colder climate areas before.

                    You wait till the next ice age come. Gonna be cold and freezin and nuthin will grow for us to eat.


                    I will take a lump sum in 100 years of food supply.
                    What they gonna blame it on then.

                          When sea levels rise 20 or 30 feet, and our coastal cities are underwater, buying a lottery ticket will be the least problem on every one's mind. The only reason to visit Florida will not be to attend Disney World, but to go aracheological diving in the entire state. And if you think population migration was a problem with Hurricane Rita, wait until you have to move the populations of New York City, Washington, D.C. and the state of Florida to higher ground.

                            Guys...  I'm a meteorology major in college right now.  (Take two subjects I like and mix them we have an interesting topic).  Global Warming is just a name...  True, our temps have risen 1 degree world wide.  However, the earth takes on cycles.  (Just like this major hurricane cycle we are in now.)  Where there are cool phases there are also warm phases.  Think about the ice ages.  We have had a total of 4 ice ages in the past 2 million years.  We've also had a total of 4 warm stages after the ice ages.  During the last Ice Age the temps were only 7 degrees colder than what they are now.  ONLY 7 Degrees!  As far as buying lottery tickets it will have no affect. 

                            How are you going to win if you don't play?

                              I knew it. The earth goes through climate changes all by itself because that's just the way things are, and nothing anyone does will stop it or change it. Therefore, the theory of man causing global warming is a bunch of bs.
