...and consequences are? If you aren't sure, do you have a specific question? And if no, what's your opinion? I am a serious believer, and simply dread the thought of the many possible scenarios our children will face. Just trying to spread the cheer.

The cause of global warming? There is too much to say and it will worn out my brain to write it all here, But the truth is it is us and our abusing acts to nature that causes this green house effect or the so called "GLOBAL WARMING".

"our abusing acts to nature" I find that concept fascinating. At what point in our history did we step outside of nature so we could turn back and abuse nature. Perhaps control of fire.

As far as technology is concern, a lot of those, generates more toxic in the air and created high temperature, such as coiled powerplants, diesel ingine cars, burned plastic materials, insecticides and pesticides, the uncontrolled cutting of trees, destruction of sea reefs and it's habitats by dynamite fishing, and a lot more, creating more buildings that soar high and the use of too much electrical power adds up to this warming effect.

I can see now why you didn't want to wear out your brain! Yes, the picture can get pretty ugly if you focus in on some of the individual problems. I try to step back and look at the whole picture, the end results of all human activity combined.

Don't worry. There are a lot of people working on this issue everyday. Those same people are working hard to get the word out about politicians sympathetic to doing something about global warming. I wish I didn't believe in global warming. The fact is that you can't put junk in the atmosphere or the water without it causing a problem. This seems obvious to me -- we can see the connections on a small scale. Why can't more people see the big picture. More are though. There is hope.

Hello ana, it's amazing how we look like each other! Have to be careful when relying on the "other people". My generation always believed that the "scientist" would find a miracle cure for this situation, nothing so far though.

The funny thing about pointing fingers is that "they" only do it because we're willing to pay them to!

Hey friends There is global warming.due to deforestation and lot of chopping of trees ,decreases the oxygen content and increases the co2 content which increases the temperature. Due to global warming,polar caps are also starting to melt. We have tp plant more trees to save the world and makes this world a better place to live in. bye!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Another excellent response! Instead of just trees, shouldn't we advocate "fruit" trees? Food is going to be an ever increasing issue.

There are many reasons that caused the Global warming.It is generally man made not merely lack of knowledge but sometime lack of care.Pollution is one factor.Our waste are now hunting us. Now, we are facing this problem.Our weather is changing and what should we do about it.I thing we still have time to slow the effect or if possible stop it.Hopefully we could find solutions and most of all do it.

Well even if I'm not an Einstein, I can see this serious matter on a small-scale scenario. For one and on a personal note, I used to always need a blanket each time I take a nap during midday or sleep at night. And mind you, not just any type of blanket but a thick one to be exact; even if it's not a cool day or even if the fan is switched off. And my parents and siblings know this habit of mine very well. But ever since the climate has drastically warmed up, I almost consider a blanket very useless; to the point of thinking that wearing skimpy clothes at night are necessary. Another personal observation, I used to have no problems with my skin. I know for a fact that all people get old and same is true with our skin; but even if I go the extra mile now to care for my skin, these agents seem to have no positive effect with the skin anymore. Plus, there are more and more skin problems arising nowadays. And I feel that global warming is one of the culprits here. I've been a busy head these past several years just like a lot of other people are; but I still haven't checked the Holy Scriptures yet regarding this phenomenon. Naturally, I am fascinated by teachings written on the Bible; especially the warnings to the world on the book of Revelation. I really think the world has severely damaged the wonderful place given by God and this is the karma or the wrath we all have to endure and solve or reverse.

"we all have to endure and solve or reverse"....I'm glad you ended with that. It is something "we" all have to endure, and "we" all need to work together to solve. Reversing history isn't that easy, but I know what you meant. "WE" is the key word here. Not we as in family, village, state, or country. Not we as in race, color, religion, culture, or even gender. This time it's "we" as in all of humanity.
