Random Thoughts....Global Warming
|Make no mistake, Zig is both a huge fan of the great outdoors, and a believer that global warming is to some degree really happening. This does not mean I'm a tree hugging activist, or militant of said order.|
I do agree we all can make reasonable efforts to reduce pollution. We can do this individually, we can do it nationally, we can do it globally. But long term, what then?
Last year, big headlines were made in California, an exceptional group of pro earth SUV bad idiots burned a car lot that sold SUV's. They torched the whole place...the building, the SUV's, and in one night, released more toxic greenhouse gasses then all the vehicles on the lot would have produced collectively in their service life. Not to mention the toll taken on the owners family and the insurance industry. Way to go activists.
I pose a small handfull of questions.............
1) What will we do about "solar warming" our system now that we see it's happing in other planets and moons..just about in step with earth?
2) How will we cap a volcanoe, which releases more green house gas in one eruption, than we do as a race in 200 years. (happens about every 100 years)
3) What do we do with the basic science that we are still getting, that this warming and cooling has happened before repeatedly, over the last few millenia.
Global warming is not a myth in my opinion, but I'm not so sure we are nearly as important a part of the mechanisms involved, as we would have ourselves believe.
George Carlin said it best, Mother earth is a sleeping giant, we are fleas in her fur. We piss her off to bad, she'll roll in her sleep, scratch her side, fleas gone, but mom will be fine.....:) We need to get over ourselves this one....
