I'm curious to know the thoughts that people have on global warming. I recently did a research paper on the subject and through my research, I have found that there are so many variations as to the cause and effects of global warming that it is hard to decipher what is fact and what is simply opinion. Based on what I have read, I do think that we should be concerned about it, if not for us - then for our future generations. Any thoughts on this subject?

There is nothing like Global Warming. It is just publicity stunt. Those who speak about global warming themself use expensive fleet of cars and private jets and airconditioners and lot of make up and own big super malls and factories. Dinosours did not die of global warming. Sun does not shine due to global warming. Volcanoes donot erupt due to global warming. Sahara desert did not form due to global warming. Our hot body temperature is not due to global warming. It humbug. Those who speak about global warming should first become yogis and then speak about it. See how monks and yogis live.

Hi rajeshmsharma. Thank you for responding. I'm curious to know how you would explain the increased temperatures, ice caps melting, increased severity of storms, etc.

When earth was formed it was hot. How did ice cap form? Are storms on mars due to global warming? Are storms on sun due to global warming? Human is minuscule, very very small atom in this universe / cosmos. Earth has large ocean, did it caused due to global warming. Global warming is all stunt by people who use costly cars and private jets. People who stay with nature and live simple life are not affected by global warming. Do you think temperature on sun increases or decreases due to global warming.

All the nuclear bombs and all arsenal on this earth can do nothing to Himalayas or Alps. They can only destroy human. Human is not only minuscule in comparison to cosmos or universe, human is minuscule even when compared to earth. Human can only destroy itself, it cannot do any harm to earth. Human is no entity compared to nature.

The planet goes through cycles. The past summer was mild compared to the ones of the past 20 years. This winter came on sooner than the past 20 years. The Earth's temperature has not increased in 10 years. So is global warming in a recession? I know a lot of the heat created during the summer is because of all of the roads and parking lots. The same goes for the larger cities. Buildings absorb the heat during the day and give it off at night.

My thoughts are that if the globe warms up I won't be so cold in winter.

Twenty years ago, the weather is not what was then today. When it becomes hot, it is literally hot. When its cold, it is in the extreme. Rain comes late but in torrents. We need to change attitude. We owe it to posterity.
