It's sad but true. People aren't taking it seriously enough. My next car is a hybrid, absolutely.

I think it's about to become a big issue soon.

This week, major corporations were urging Bush to set more stringent pollution levels, and he refuses . . . until Cheney oks it, we're all screwed with this administration, but I agree with flix that this is going to keep getting bigger and bigger - thanks for posting about it

God I hate this administration. If climatologists are right in 10 years it will be too late to do anything about global warming.

NOVA has a great program on global warming called DIMMING THE SUN. Several scientists have discovered that the Earth is warming at a faster rate than we can measure because of the air pollution from airplanes. If anyone is interested just google the NOVA program and check out the website.

Global warming was a huge issue yesterday, thanks to this administration and corporations it may become too late to come up with a major solution. Though hopefully not.

I used to get really worried and anxious about this kind of news but not so much now. Consider the following facts:

The dinosaurs died out before there was such a concept of global warming. Why? Well, the scientists are still arguing: it could have been a meteor or whatever. But the important thing to consider: the earth is going to do what it wants to do. Our using fossil fuels and hairspray doesn't help but the dinosaurs weren't much into haircare and they died out anyway.

The ice age. The world used to be covered by ice. Why? Who knows, but it probably had something to do with global warning or not-warming whatever you may call it.

The earth has its own agenda and schedule. We are not really having a huge impact on it. We could act much better and respect the earth a whole lot more, but in the larger scheme of things, natural disasters are going to happen regardless.
