Many scientist and people believe global warming is an actuall threat to our planet and could be happening alot sooner than predicted. Some also say that this is partly at the fault of humanity and the carelessness of the way we live our lives. I personally think there is some truth to this theory and wan't to help reverse the effects if possible. I am curious how other people feel about the truth in this & how if changing our lifestyle will make a difference?

We have the global warming panic mongers who say that humans are the cause, and we should change our lifestyle (translation -reduce it) and by our own efforts, we will be able to reverse this damage to the environment. You cannot, not unless you want to go back to a civilization like it was before we came from Europe. You do not know whether this global warming is the end of the mini ice age or whether such has never happened before because before the mini ice age (the early middle ages)television had not been invented yet. All they knew was that winters were getting colder. And the natural conclusion is if humanity is the cause, the solution is to get rid of humanity so Earth will be like it was when there only wild animals here. I do not want that and no one can by his or her effort or even a combination reverse the situation. If you keep on recycling and saving and not being wasteful, it should be because you want to do it and you should do it even if the temperate of the Earth got cooler. You should make do, keep the lights off in unused rooms, bathe twice a week instead of every day, wash in cold water because you want to be thrifty, not so you can satisfy some group's ideal of a world where there are less people and less pollution.

Good response, i can see your point, & i like the aspect that your coming from especially how you emphasised i should recycle because i enjoy to. I do recycle because i enjoy to, but also because i enjoy making a difference, even if my difference is like a needle in a hay stack.
