Indeed, and sometimes looking back, helps looking forward.
Some thoughts I posted in another related thread, I will take the risk of repeating here.
As global warming accelerates, and the human contribution to it increases it is becoming harder for skeptics to deny that which science is proving.
However the reality is that most people, especially Americans, are content to remain oblivious to the impact that our pollution production is having
on global climate. Therefore listing real data, and showing charts, graphs, projections and computer generated model long range forecasts, do little
to change people's attitudes.
Extreme weather is only going to worsen, weather anomalies, and record heat contributing to large scale glacier and polar ice melting. Combined with
man's contribution to this problem, we have a recipe for a future of calamity, pestilences, droughts, and more extreme weather, along with the
potentially rapidly rising ocean levels, and loss of land to water invasion which could ultimately displace 100's of Millions of people.
Man's seemingly suicidal habits that are contributing to these problems will continue. In fact we may be reaching a point where even the most radical
changes will be unable to slow or stop this process.
We face a future world that may be far less habitable, for all species.
Too bad, what a shame.
Now back to your regularly scheduled discussions, you can safely return to your oblivious world where everything is usually quite good.
