What are your thoughts about the enviroment and Global Warming???? Does it scare you? {The Basic Science of Global Warming The basic workings of the Earth's climate system. Like the glass of a greenhouse, a layer of water vapor, carbon dioxide, and other gases surrounds the Earth and help regulate the climate. It's a natural process that maintains average global temperatures at a comfortable 57 degrees Fahrenheit. Without it, close to 0 degrees and life on Earth as we know it would not exist. Human activities are now altering our climate. Following the last Ice Age, concentrations of these gases remained relatively stable. But beginning with the Industrial Revolution in the mid-1700s, air pollution generated by a variety of human activities has altered the balance. This has served to "thicken the walls" of the Earth's greenhouse, trapping more of the sun's heat and causing the planet to warm beyond its historic range.

Though greenhouse gases produced naturally are much more compared to human activity but nature has it's own way of balancing; "eco-system". What we have done or are doing is/can't be balanced by natural process. We are the one to damage it and it's our responsibility to correct it. Many scholars have argued that it's a natural cycle, earth has been warming up and cooling down ever since it's existence but what we are seeing now is not a natural process but a negative human intervention. I don't think that we are giving a cleaner or atleast same world to our next generations. It's getting worse every new day and if we don't take any action, it may lead to a point of no return. I just hope that we all wake up to accept our wrong doings and correct them. Only then we can hope for a safer future for our generations to come.

Yes I agree there is always a beginning and an end. Though I don't think this world is going to end any time soon, it just will be a very stinky place to live.
