Global warming effects

I'm hesitant to say man wouldn't survive, but there are definitely global events that humans would be unlikely to survive.  If human impact causes the globe to become super heated or like a permanent nuclear winter then obviously survival is unlikely.  Both are possibilities if the planetary cycle spirals out of control and away from the normal heating and cooling cycles.  Again, the chances of either happening are unknown, which is why it is safer to err on the side of caution and try to eliminate any threat of human impact on global change, but, with so many humans, the best we can hope to do is reduce our impact.   Even if we all went back to living in an agrarean society our impact would still be substantial due to our population.

Why oh why doesn't anyone ever talk about the real cause of global warming (or cooling for that matter).  You can't miss it.  It's responsible for what we call "day".


Humanist chafe at the notion that they're not in control of things, even the climate.  Howz about we depersonalize it and call it force majeure.

I heard on the online radio last week that pollution may actually be SLOWING global warming. Seems it helps difuse the suns rays. Once again, depends on which side of the argument you fall...

You are interested in listening to melodic, vibrant, country music, .. and other unique genres of online music. Here is a free radio music site that you should check out. The music is great, and only exists in the Netherlands.
