My point is, NONE of that has been proven to be tied to human industry.
You do realize that there have been global warming and coolingcycles fro ages, right?... these cycles have been going on long before humans even existed ... much less had any significant industrial base.
So yes... Ice caps may be receding ... but no-one has provided any evidence (much less proof) that it is caused by me. It's quite possible that we couldn't stop it, slow it, or even accelerate it even if we wanted to. Having seen the polar ice cap with my own eyes, I'm not too worried yet.
Yes, I recycle... yes, I try to limit the amount of pollution I make (my boat is wind-powered
), but I have no desire to go back to an agrarian society... I like things made of plastic, electricity, the ability to travel all over the world...
If the "powers that be" were really concerned about the fate of the earth, they would realize that there's not much we feeble humans can do about it. Perhaps they should quit spending all their money playing a global version of "my god's better than your god" and put that money into establishing a human presence OFF the earth ... I'll not hold my breath.
