I realize this may be a controversial subject because we all have our opinion on this, one way or another. Nothing I say here is going to change that, and that’s okay.
I have always been skeptical about everything, so I like to look at the facts, and then make up my mind about things. Scientific theory is easier for me to believe than the hype of today’s reporters and politicians. With that said, there is no solid evidence to suggest the Earth is in a state of global warming. Heck, we can’t even accurately predict the weather. How are we supposed to believe that we can predict changes happening years down the road?
I personally favor the thought that this is a natural process. The Earth goes through it ever so often, and this has been happening since the Earth has been around. It makes perfect sense, just like the ebb and flow of the tides every month because of the moon’s affect, only this is over a much longer period.
I know many people believe all the intense weather we’ve experienced lately is a sign, but I think the Earth has always had periods of strange weather. This is just a cycle, like the four seasons we go through. The only difference here is that we experience the seasons every year and everyone is used to that. What we have now may not happen but every few thousand years, so naturally, this rings people’s alarm bells. Then there are the ones who will take the people’s panic and exploit it for their own gain, namely politicians and the like. These people prey on the public’s fears. They are good at deception and can easily add new things of worry to the mix as needed.
I’m not saying that mankind has no influence on the condition of the Earth. I’m sure we do. We are wasteful and throw tons of garbage away in all the wrong places. On the process, we pollute our waters, and our air with factories. However, I think humans have always done this too, just on a grander scale today. There are a lot more of us too than there used to be years ago, so naturally we would have a greater affect with all our trash. This makes perfect sense, if you think about it.
How many of you here believe all this nonsense? I am interested in hearing your thoughts. If you leave comments, please give reasons to back up your thinking.
