Any port city will be significantly affected... I am too sad to comment...seems like we are a infection for our earth...and earth is fighting us off (we are the infection) and it is going to do it by drowning us and burning us up at the same time...

I don't go along with the idea that we are an infection on earth theory. Overreacting and panic will not bring solutions to our problems. The earth may be adjusting to our presence just as we have to sometimes adjust to the nature of the earth as it changes.

Absolutely Sigma. We have very little understanding of earth's history and the factors that affect the climate. It seems a bit presumptuous to think that humans are to "blame" for global warming when we can't define the role of the sun and natural processes like volcanic emissions in it. This recent hysteria, fueled by Illuminati tool Gore's "Inconvenient Truth" is a carefully orchestrated scenario that is being used to manipulate the masses toward their aims, which is of course total information awareness and one world government. *sigh*

I agree with your assessment. I have not bought into the "global warming is the fault of man" idea. Whenever a politician spouts off about our problems, you can bet they are trying to create some buzz to fit an agenda. I see politics fixing few of our problems because from one election to the next, the same problems make the list...only they are in a different order.

This is indeed scary stuff. I'm just hoping that with our technology we can find a way or at least reduce the effects. I can only take solace from the fact that our planet has seen massive catastrophes before and it now faces another one. It is sad, but it is so. If each of us keep looking for way to lessen our own "footprint" perhaps there may be some improvement. I am sure the majority us are doing this, but how to get the world governments to act more strongly than they are doing is a problem.

Hey, It is scary to think this is all taking place, especially when you have small children. We get told from experts and scientists that "we have to act now" and then we have the ignorant, who still speak against this issue, and want more evidence, because the evidence out there is just not enough for them, to start thinking about positive changes for global warming. Can you imagine the already hot summers we all have now, It will even be hotter, people will die from this hot heat, not too mention animals and wild life. Water will be hot everywhere, it would be like a draught with hot water. Disasters all over the world are signs of the earth changing. Our seasons have changed too. Its worth thinking about and really worth acting on now. Heres are a couple of links worth looking at: http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=/c/a/2005/02/19/MNGE1BECPI1.DTL http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2004/12/17/MNGARADH401.DTL http://www.ecobridge.org/content/g_evd.htm

Exactly!!! What we've done and continue to do, is destroying ourselves. Industries, Exhaust Fumes, Cutting of Trees the list goes on... I wonder, are we too late to act or what? "Reality Check for the world"...

I think we all know that we humans are the ones who destroy our own environment. By doing this, we are destroying ourselves, since we are all part of the environment. I already feel it here. Spring is here but the temperature is still unstable, just like beginning of winter. This means in other part of the world it's going to be longer summer or hotter than usual. I think countries that do not want to contribute to saving our earth should be penalized, since they are endangering us all.

I can't think at anything else but Venice...that great city under water...my god! thank you,my friend,you are so right... but it is imperative we fix this problem not only to stop cities from drowning and polar bears from drowning...

that's what I mean. all countries must contribute to save our earth, those who don't, are endangering us all. Drowning is only the beginning, I'm sure you can tell that from the video.

I think everyone should have noticed that the temperature all over the world is already higher that it used to be. The seal level has risen higher and higher every year. Soon, many parts of the earth would be nothing but water. This reminds me of the movie Water World.

In Ireland we have been having warm, sunny weather over the last few weeks which is very out of character compared to years before, and we're also in for one of our warmest summers ever, possibly our hottest one yet!
