Any educated mind is capable of wrapping themselves around these facts of global climate change. Even without the finger pointing anyone can see there is a problem and if there is anything we can do to change the course of events we owe it to every living thing on this world to do whatever we can. denial and finger pointing are not the answer. Religion, as one poster digresses, is not the answer. Stop running away from the facts, and start asking, what can WE do?

If you are going to have a new economic program to create jobs that “green” products you cannot very well have the North Pole the only thing that melts. The Antartic has to melt too so we as consumers buy these necessary products and save the economy, and defeat global warming at the same time.

And if we have the ability to do something about it, then we should. To do nothing when we have opportunity to act is foolishness. And foolishness leads to the grave.

The constent atack on religon is counterproductive, most who attack it don’t realize how much they depend on its ideas. Also, they remove a nessisary ally in the struggle to help the earth’s enviroment.

I have a few questions for Sebas or whoever wants to answer them. If religion is dead and then be extinction its commission to care for it (Genesis 1:16-18, 2:15, Proverbs 12:10) is also dead. I also presume we are basing our system on Evolution in religions’ absence then.

Q1) With what reason are we concerned about the disappearance of species?

Q2) Darwin wrote “Only the fit will survive.” Also in the Decent of Man Darwin criticized socity’s care of the weak and disabled saying that it was doing great harm to humankind. Would trying to save the species be hindering evolution, harming nature, and be going against science?

Q3) Are you prepared to sit back and let evolution run its course and let the unfit finish dying out like Darwin’s theory says is best? Or do you want to fallow the religous commission to help and take care of the environment? (I will admit that not everyone fallows what thier claimed belief systems say or thought about the meaning of what is said by it.)

This shows that people need to see all sides from the other sides veiwpoint then deside what is the best and admit what they truely think. There is alot they have in commen. Challange is good but supression of ideas and evidence, bigotry, and a lack of self analisis or chosing what you belive not what others tell you to is best for the world. Live yourself in peace and let others live around you in peace.

I just had to vent on this because i get anoyed when people say that a belief system is dead (or false) but then their own ideas presupose that it is true. Why can’t people think logicaly and follow what thier belief system says. Then alot of problems would end as Gandhi said “Christianity ia a great idea too bad no one fallows it.”

We should and must be told the entire story, not just one part of it. Then we can make a much more informed plan on how to protect our enviroment.

Right now all of the money is going to global warming research. Like the saying “When the only tool you have is a hammer every problem looks like a nail.”

If everyone is looking for global warming then they will find everything suports it. What we need is for money to be spent to see if global warming caused by man is not the case. Then after seeing both sides we can deside which better fits the evidence. Thomas Jefferson said, “But for God’s sake, let us freely hear both sides if we choose.”

We need to be shown all of the evidence not just what thoughs with an agenda want us to see.
Science is based on questioning and challenging what was precived to be true.
