my childhood buddy from florida dared me to do a piece on global warming. i can't imagine why :) i am going to let everyone guess my thoughts on this one :) ok- here goes- it's friday and i don't want to make you work :) in lieu of cat blogging- here is my opinion:
our planet is in grave danger from climate change precipitated by global warming- caused by human made pollution- most significantly from burning fossil fuels. but- by all means let us continue to mine coal and drill for oil and ignore the entire problem in order to rake in billions- yes, billions of dollars in profits. and for all of you folks who are too willfully ignorant to believe in global warming- because the earth's temperature is actually falling in some places- let me spell it out for you- and i will try very hard to use small words for you to understand:
the polar ice caps are melting- that's turning from ice into water- and that is due to global warming. the melted ice makes the planet's oceans cooler- in turn making things cooler. not a good thing. this will directly effect food production and fuel consumption- folks have to have heat and air conditioning for extreme temps. if you aren't convinced- take a look at recent weather patterns.
