Dypsisdean Posted December 16, 2013 Report Share Posted December 16, 2013 We have natural threats that are far, far bigger than global warming. I can think of three nasties that are maybe's:Let me suggest another - in hopes I can sneak it by the Palm Mod if I phrase it correctly. How about the threat of another super power that will pump more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere than we do while it acquires more political and geographic power. They will use these cheaper "polluting" fuels to supply the more "conscientious" nations with the goods they desire, while it uses the profits to send men to moon, build the world's strongest military, and buy their debt, along with the power and influence that comes with it.The climate change will continue, but we will have a new, potentially stronger than the U.S. super power, that will take the place as the "world's policeman." If you think they will act in a more benevolent manner than the U.S. has, then the world is in no political danger. But the climate change threat will still exist, unless this new power develops the the same guilty conscience we have.Somebody will burn fossil fuel as long as it is available and cheaper. The irony is that if we burn it, we will burn it cleaner than anyone else. Kona, on The Big Island Hawaii - Land of Volcanoes Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
