its scary to think were killing the planet the way we are.
but i honestly dont think that anyone is ever gonna stop and start listening until its too late. People arent seeing drastic enough evidence that the planet is changing, the uneducated people dont seem to realise what a 1 degree C tempterature rise means to the world.
the problem I see is that the issue is politicized, which means is has lost all credibility.
They are using a very known marketing technique, they say something you can't deny, then they tie a cause to it and ask you to act on the cause.
I'll try to explain what I mean.
I think many people have gone to those stupid marketing multilevel marketing sessions. In all of them they will start showing you that you are working a lot and not making much money while others work very little and make a lot of money.
Then they ask you, would you like to work less and earn a lot more money? the answer is obviousy yes and requires no explanation or justification.
But the fact that you want
more money doesn't mean their methods will give you more money, but they don't tell you that, they concentrate in your wishes, and start paternalizing you. They say, see? what I say is exactly what you think so blah blah blah.
It's similar here. They start saying "Global warming is happening, the consequences of global warming are catastrophic", nobody denies that, it IS happening, but it doesn't mean that greenhouse gases are causing it.
Then when they go to the causes, they conveniently say that there is a high probability that global warming is man caused. Why? because they don't know. They generalize calling "scientists", but there is a large number of scientists who don't agree.
There are cases where they have invited known experts in certain areas, case in point, hurricanes, but then issue a report not supported by those experts, a lot of evidence is omitted.
Funny, they predicted the 2006 hurricane season was going to be the worst ever, they gambled, they assumed that because 2005 was very bad 2006 would be as well, and it resulted in one of the mildest ever. Translation, they know shit about what causes hurricanes, the oceans are as warm or warmer than last year, yet, the hurricanes behaviour was completely different, so there must be other factors that are obvioulsy more important than global warming.
They are promoting using alternate fuels, but to produce those alternate fuels they are desforastating big areas.
Some people talk about recycling, that's great, the problem is that they are not recycling everything we give them, and some recycling centres produce more pollution than they avoid.
when a scientist denies that greenhouse gases are causing global warming, they say they are paid by the oil companies, maybe.
But what about the multi-billion dollars to be spent in "cleaning", isn't there an economic interest also?
I've seen reports that said the US goverments silenced some scientists that warned about global warming. That's probably true but what about the scientists that think the sun is to be blamed that were also silenced?
I don't know, I am not a scientists but some times it seems they don't know much more than I do, in any case, abrupts changes in temperature have happened many times before, and the sun does look as a very important factor in Earth's climate.
Some years ago, the emphasis was in the ozone layer, the visions were as apocaliptic as they are now, they proposed among other things to stop using planes. Since that was obviously not going to happen they stop it, nobody cares about it now.
They don't care about deforestation, they don't care about overfishing, they don't care about hydroelectric dams covering natural habitats, now global warming is news, it's all they care about, in some cases they are damaging the environment to prevent global warming.
One final word, the greenhouse advocates mention dates well beyond our lifespan, they make prediction by 2100 when we all we dead.
In other words, we won't see any effects of the changes, but because they went so far in the future then we can't know can we? so keep doing it.
But one of the scientists that attributes global warming the the sun, not greenhouse gases, claims that Earth will enter a cold period (a mini glaciar) between 2015 and 2020, that much nearer. If that do happen, I hope the members of that UN committee have their tickets to Mars, because some people will be really pissed off at them.
