I haven't read all the other comments on this...but would simply like to contribute mine.
What if there is nothing man can do to stop Global Warming?
I mean, what if this is just a cycle of the Universe...
Man seems to think, he is the cause of everything, and there is nothing he cannot do. Yet, man cannot 100% of the time predict an accurate weather report...and weather patterns are simply a part of the entire whole of things.
I think, and believe man cannot control global warming...scientists predicted this years ago, when we were all kids...they knew then that if the temperatures shifted, it definately causes an effect on global weather.
Is man then responsible for all the sun's solar explosions...? I mean, they are getting stronger and stronger all the time, matter of fact, just last week, the sun emitted solar explosions more powerful then any other time in history....can man control them? And do they have an extreme effect on not only global warming but our entire universe?
Man cannot control everything, sorry to say...when something bad happens, we resort to instant gratification or quick fixes....and in this case, no matter what man does, if the earth is going to go thru another ice age, or violent earth quakes, none of which man has ever before seen, it's going to happen, no matter what we do. Also, when ever money comes into play, man will do what is best for his own personal resources and not the whole environment around him.
We've had the technology for years to recyle and utilize technology that is out there and available to clean up things, but, unfortunatly this would empty the pockets of those who are flourishing financially from what is now presently going on. Man will be man's own demise...but in the end...global warming cannot be controled by man, caused by man, or stopped by man.
Can we clean up our act, of course, there is always room for improvement, but will it effect global warming...NO...it will not. If the earth is going to explode or turn cold, there is nothing man can do but adapt or die.
There are simply some things that man refuses to fathom and accept. Man has a very strong need to control...and you can't control everyone, what they think, how they feel, do you think man will control global warming and save the world.
Global Warming is the result of the cycle of life, weather patterns. Earth is a star, and eventually all stars burn out.
