fantastic post! since i started this thread, i'd like to reiterate that my stance is "not convinced." i believe we should be good stewards of the earth, but the question is are WE causing it to warm "unnaturally" and subsequently destroying creation?
what's not in question is that we are polluting our world. we should conserve, clean, and otherwise act responsibly to honor all creatures.
Thank you. I manage to put a decent one together every once in a....great while . And plus I'm a geologist, and we have a little different internal time scale than the rest of the world . One year to you guys is like a million years to us.
I agree about pollution. China's air pollution problem is absurd. But here in the states we certainly have our fair share. It's actually my job to assess polluted sites, and it's really amazing just how many there are. Unless we can find a more economical way to get fresh water from sea water, some places may run out of fresh water before oil. But.....that's another story. And actually related to agricultural practices more than pollution in most cases. Which, bad agricultural practices were actually just as big of a cause for the 1930s dust bowl than temperatures. Not trying to pick on you, vetteowner. Just trying to draw an analogue to something that may bring on a new "dust bowl." (but maybe not in the same form).
