    Global warming..

    I'm a newbie here, and i don't know if this issue has been raised here before or not.

    A couple of other sites i go to have threads about it, so i just thought that i'd try and see what the general opinion of this forum is?

    My own personal view is that global warming is a reality, it's happening whether we like it or not.

    Weather patterns in some places are changing, and the oceans are certainly rising.

    We are causing this problem ourselves but we're not doing much to change the situation.
    Our future is unclear!

    What are your thoughts and opinions on this serious issue?

    Welcome trickster. We cant stop global warming the only thing we can do is to delay the affects. They are never going to make the whole world stop using fossil fuels. It's a terrifying truth that global warming will give huge and dissastarous affects one day.
    Everyone wants to change the world, noone wants to change himself.

    Was going to happen anyway, natural warming up/cooling down processes of Earth, we've merely managed to speed it up somewhat.

    Well said. Personally I couldn't give a **** about what happens 200 or more years after I'm dead.

    Then people are like 'ooh, don't you care about your family in 200 years?'. Well no, the same way my family 200 years ago obviously wouldn't care about me, and lets face it, the Industrial Revolution in Britain pretty much made the whole speeding up thing kick in.

    Exactly, I doubt too many people will care what their famkily are doing 200 years down the track, especially considering we will all be fertilizing daiseys by then.

    The Earth does heat up and cool down naturally, but nowhere near at the rate it has been thanks to us. It's not a case of us 'speeding it up somewhat,' it's a case of us hugely magnifying the effects of it, thanks (at least in recent times) to people with that kind of short-sighted attitude. It's incredibly selfish for you to enjoy a decent environment we have ATM while ****ing it up for future generations without a care in the world.

    Can't say that I personally am a big contributor to global warming, but I see what you are meaning. The simple fact of the matter is, why should we care? Did people in 1807 care about what was going to happen to us? No, so there is no reason we should care about what is going to happen in 2207.

    Figure that i might leave a message telling my future family to not live in Holland, East Anglia, near the sea in general. Then i'll have done my part.

    But the difference between us and those people in 1807 is that we know pretty accurately what effect our actions are having on the environment and, more importantly, how to solve it. If we (well, governments mainly, I agree with you in that personally we have a fairly insignificant contribution to global warming) choose to ignore the clear warning signs just so we can gain a short-term profit, that's pretty selfish.

    Don't be to sure that changes are 200 years away, it's already happening.

    It can't be solved though, we can just slow it down slightly by destroying America.

    There is no way to stop global warming. Its not like we can throw all the fossil fuels away.
