How about "Global Cooling"? ;-)Yup... this global warming is just a rumour
Ja, what you Pommies call "bad weather" we here in dry South Africa call "beautiful rain"Having some inclement weather chaps?
Exactly- two of the worlds biggest polluters (USA and to a far lesser extent Aus) havent signed it (last I was aware)
Perhaps, but I would rather have you become extinct before I do , and if I had a choice I would rather have the next ice age happen in 20 000 years, rather than in 200 years.Millions of species have appeared and disappeared over the course of time, and we are just another species subject to the whims of the universe so what does it matter if we die out as a race within the next 200 years or next 20 000 or 2000 000.
That's probably what our forefathers said 200 years ago...Sure we may have a small effect
What effect did Man have on the environment only 200 years ago, and look what effect we're having now. In another 200 years (if we survive...) our offspring could perhaps be debating the pollution effect we're having on the whole solar system... "Mars was in a pristine condition until they started mining operations..." or perhaps "since we started using the sun as an incinerator for our trash, light intensity has decreased by 12.8% over the past 50 years, and soon Venus will become inhabitable..."What effect do we really have on the universe itself. Nothing.....We are insignificant.
Nicely put, I totally agree with the particle of sand theoryMy view - I think we are all fooling ourselves really if we want to try do something to change the situation.
Sure we may have a small effect, but do you really think for example that the human race can stop the next ice-age etc., things that have been happening on earth for millions of years.
Us humans are merely a blip on evolutionary time scale and given a few more million years, as a race we probably won't be around anymore anyway.
Millions of species have appeared and disappeared over the course of time, and we are just another species subject to the whims of the universe so what does it matter if we die out as a race within the next 200 years or next 20 000 or 2000 000. What effect do we really have on the universe itself. Nothing.....We are insignificant.
So enjoy life while you can. If it makes you feel better then do your bit, but it won't make any difference in the long run.
