Man only ever deals with things when there on the doorstep, look at the UK's preperation for bird-flu. Throughout my life the problem of global
warming has been highlighted. Man thinks he knows everything; "so there is the problem of global warming but we've got it under control and we'll
fgiure out an alternative in time". Scientists are discovering new effects of global warming all the time; the glaciers melted faster today, higher
temperatures in deserts will add to global warming effect yesterday and the movement of the gulf stream before that. Last century we were told how the
lungs of the planet were being destroyed.
So, where do we go? One answer, for you conspiracy theorists, is that its all nonsense, with the media attempting to incite fear into our hearts.
The next path entails that we can, with concerted effort, prevent man's massive ecological footprint from extending into our atmosphere. I point you
in the direction of my thread about my idea for a water turbine (please give me your criticisms, it'll help the person that does make it and then we
can all have free energy i do my best).
The final direction these ideas lead me is that we are past tipping point. We only have one world, and we haven't been here very long. We used to
think God did everything and now we have our own ideas. Well, these ideas might not be up to scratch. This environment we are lucky enough to exist in
works on a clock people cannot contemplate. Most people resort to the 24 hour clock... "oh we've only been around for 3 seconds ".
Aren't we great, we, three seconds old, are masters of the universe. We can dig up oil, burn down trees, play with nuclear power, whatever we want.
Well, try this thought experiment. Imagine the world was a 24 hour clock. We have changed this enviroment in the most unnatural way in the whole day.
Nothing throughout the day will be able to demonstrate what will happen tomorrow, except that the earth is not without its mass-extinctions.
Now imagine a plane. It flys round the world in a day. Throughout that day it has troubles, but nothing it can't handle. Then at the end, human
intervention, the pilots hijacked... game over.
I would ask someone to verify what I am now going to explain. A weekly magazine the UK, called THE WEEK, (the clues in the title, oh yeah) in Issue
549, 11 Feb 06, published an article featuring Jasper Gerrard, of Sunday Times acclaim, interviewed James Lovelock, a quoted "respected sciectist".
The title was a Lovelock quote, and it sums up the article.
"The earth is doomed - let's make hay while it lasts"
