    Global Warming

    have you ever watched "the inconvenient truth" if you have then you know my concerns, if you haven't watched it you should. I am really worried about the future of our planet, the world is going to die. It will and we can't stop anything now. All we can do is...

    Global Warmism - A New Religion?

    What troubles me about the current alarmism related to anthropogenic global warming are the strident calls to end debate, that the science is settled. Nothing could be further from the truth. Any true scientist knows that science is NEVER settled, that experimentation and...

    I've never stopped wondering what will happen

    twenty years later or even fifty years later. I've supposed people will be more lazy than the usual, the radiation from our growing gadgets will shorten our lives and every one is growing unhealthy from the era we have now. I just wonder if we also, even have the chance to...

    I would say I''m concerned

    but I won't be fathering any children. So, I won't have to explain myself to anyone. What kind of world do you want your children to inherit? Concrete jungles? What kind of life will you teach them to live? Slavery for dollars?

    Man has attempted to tame and/or conquer nature in many ways over the centuries (for better or worse) and so often we walk around doing our day to day things without paying nature much attention. However, our planet is alive and still let's us know that we are not master's...

    Klaatu: If the Earth dies, you die. If you die, the Earth survives The Day the Earth Stood Still   I have a story related to this somewhere else.  Yet to me, I am concerned about the future of our earth as it conveys the extent to which human nature has become so...

    Earth obviously has an expiration date.

    There is nothing we can do about that. What worries me, though, is that humans are going to make it happen much sooner than it should. Until we have another planet to call home, I think we need to start treating this one with more respect. It provides for us, but we're not doing...

    Life is short. Don't waste it on yourself.

    Contrasting to the vast universe, the Earth is depressingly insignificant. We are lucky that Earth happened to orbit the Sun at a perfect distance which allows just enough energy for life. It is easy to imagine how lucky we are to have extinctions caused by natural disasters...

    And Cabbage For All

    There's a lot of concern about global warming, which oddly enough would make the earth eventually enter into an ice age once Greenland melts and desalinates our deep ocean currents. My dad used to tell me stories of how big the cabbages used to grow further north, close to the...

    People NEED to stop having kids.

    The world population is expanding at an unprecedented rate and there are only so many natural resources to go around. The more people we have jammed into this planet, the more fossil fuels/carbon dioxide is being released into the air and causing global warming. The glaciers in...

    I am in a reflective mood tonight.

    I have had a day to myself, there was no work today. But the day was not waisted, I took calls - booking in more work for next week. I also went to the supermarket and did a big shop. I had lunch and a glass of wine - I was tired and fell asleep. After waking up I did some...

    Most people go on living long

    after they ought to be dead, don’t you think. We lounge around and then die. That’s all the Earth is, really-a big extinction lounge, an extinction club. There are too many of us, anyway. A tiger is worth ten thousand humans.

    One Day

    I like to watch shows about the origins/future of the earth/universe, and it always makes me feel kind of upset. It just makes me sad to think that all we (humans) accomplished, all we've learned, and built, and created, all of it will one day be taken back by the forces of...

    Killing Our Children With Their Own Garbage

    the one thing I find particularly sickening (and feel rather helpless to change) is the way children's toys are overpackaged.    The consumer society and advertising has kids wanting and getting mountains of toys.  How does that relate to global warming well...
