whaty is your felling about all the threats of global warming, do you beleive all that media coverage that surrounds it. Or do you think this is just another pretence to make us all panic. I do beleive that we are now at a stage in our life that we really do have to care for our environement but what I dont understand is why did we not pay attention to this 20 years ago when it was first mentioned. Why for some reason are we now respecting what the scientists have always told us. remember these scientists are the same ones who initially told us about the harms to the ozone and the effects on the polar icecaps.

Belief? I dont think there is anything much left in the concept to not believe in it.. There is a very famous quote about humanity...people dont swim until the boat has drowned and they are neck deep in water!! The truth is that people never experienced anything drastically different all these years. Now slowly the facts are showing. Weather has gone awry all over the world. Unseasonal rains, excessive heat, unpredictable weather and rough seas. Now that these things are visible, one has no option but to believe in the ill effects of global warming.

I do think that it will change our world. Unfortunately, I don't think that one person will be able to make a difference. We would all have to come together to make something happen. And I just don't think enough people care enough.

I think you may be right but have you heard the song man in the mirror by michael jackson. It says to make a change you have to start with the man in the mirror. We do have to chnage as an individuals to start. then maybe we can all pull in the same direction.

Only the solution is to prevent it. we have to be very careful in our own life. we can prevent it by our own. we need to make people educated on this. it is a work of each individuals around the world. Recently, scientists of the Harvard University discovered that one of the five ice-beds of the North Pole has been disintegrated drastically within past one year. This fact was never noticed until last week of November 2006. It has also been noticed that this big ice-bed is now floating on the North Sea. This floated ice-bed can now start approaching down towards the north boundary of Canada. Scientists are trying to keep an eye on the movement of this ice-bed. Satellites are helping in this regard by sending continuous pictures and data of this ice-bed. The most worried part of this incident, apart from the Global Warming, is that if by any chance this ice object reaches near to the border of Canada, it may create a great problem for the ships which are regularly traveling near the border of Canada. There is a good article in AC. Just read that. You will understand we have something to do to prevent Global Warming. http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/156681/how_to_prevent_global_warming.html
