Doom

An earlier Metro tells a tale of global warming out of control.  It seems that we are all doomed to toast to death as the planet heats up.  Does this change the way that you plan on living your life?  Are you going to switch off the lights when you leave a room?  How about walking to work or catching the bus instead of driving? Do you plan on recycling more than you do now?

Do you even believe that global warming is a problem?

    I beleive my reaction to global warming is best summed up using the modern venacular (which you so rightly ranted against in a previous post): Meh.

    I switch lights off 99% of the time when I leave a room, I use a combination of walking and public transport to get anywhere and everywhere; I could recycle more than I do; but am never around to take the boxes back in … and do worry having a recycling box outside your house from dawn to dusk is a pretty big advertisement to the fact that there is no-one in the house.

    I think that what is more worrying than the small things we’re being encouraged to do, is the rate that the earth’s natural defenses and resources are being plundered to support the ever increasing population. That many of the phenomenon we attribute to global warming, is actually attributable to human erosion.

    The planet has cycles, it warms and cools over a period of millions of years. Maybe we are accelerating that process, maybe it would have happened anyway? Maybe it is part of the cycle of regeneration? Who will know? I’m hoping rats evolve next to be the dominant species after humankind is wiped out.

  3. I tend to think it is mainly (as of yet) unsubstantiated rubbish.

    It is also difficult to be green and global warming friendly when we run race cars that consume huge amounts of fuel and tyres 😀

    I have made some adjustments in how I live, mostly to save money.

    I buy the most energy efficient products I can find. My next car will probably be a hybrid or the most fuel efficient model available. I often walk the three miles to the store instead of driving. I do this as much for exercise as trying to save on gasoline consumption. I do buy products that can be recycled.

    It is the pace of the warming that concerns me. The weather on earth always changes from warmer periods to cooler periods. The faster the pace of the change the harder, and more costly, adopting to that change will be.

    We can’t stop this trend but we may be able to slow it do and give us more time to adopt. From what I have read there isn’t much we can now that will change weather patterns over the next 20 or 30 years. It’s our grandchildren that are likely to pay the price of doing nothing.

    I don’t have a lot of confidence that anyone knows with any degree of confidence exactly what the weather will be like in the next 30 to 50 years. All any one can say is that if current trends continue it is likely to have a significant impact on our food sources and the land we now live on.

    The risk of doing nothing now and just letting future generations deal with it is being very short sided to me.

  5. Yes, I do. From all the evidence available thus far, nothing convinces me about what is happening to the planet like the theories on global warming.
