What worries you most? The financial crisis that were facing right now or the global warming that each days become worst. Heat waves and periods of unusually warm weather,Ocean warming, sea level rise and coastal flooding.Early spring arrival, coral reef bleaching and many more that we haven't experience for that past decade. Do you make some move in order to help our world survive for this kind or crisis? Can this crisis incurable?

The global financial crisis I worry about. It was created by man and with some effort on the part of governments we should be able to sort it out in the next ten years or sooner. Global warming, on the other hand, is a cycle that the world is going through and man has very little influence on it. So I don't worry about that as we cannot change it.

In my part i dont agree with your opinion although it is your opinion but dont you think if we just do something we can make this world a better one..Don't you think of your siblings' future if there is still a beautiful world they can explore or they can still eat some fresh foods in their time? We can have a contribution if we just know how even though it is small but it well help a lot.

I see no problem with my siblings future. The 'experts' have predicted all sorts of things in the last 50 years of my lifetime and many were wrong. In 1964 there was a great fear among some 'experts' that the world population was expanding so fast there would only be 100sq.m for each person to live in by 2000. At the time I looked at the logic of this and did a few sums and decided it was a ridiculous claim. It was. Sea level rises? The north pole and the south pole will never melt at the same time. One is in winter when the other is in summer. The whole world would have to tilt on its axis to change that!

financial crisis is short term and global warming is long term. you can survive in the crisis but you can survive in global warming.

I would say the financial crisis. There are lots of people living outside their means and already gotten themselves into a lot of debt. It's not going to be a time to dig out or save, with the way inflation is going. I think a lot of folks will be losing homes even with the help that Congress is trying to dish out. Shoot even the frugal folks are worried.
