Now, how many of those nice things man has done to her were only done to compensate for damage we had already caused?
We have no idea of the true side effects of mans activities on our Eco system, the same as I don’t know the true side effects that smoking will do to me. The only time I will know is when it becomes apparent. But then it will be to late.
Now, I take that risk as only I will die.
I will not how ever take the risk that mans activities of pollution, consumption and destruction of our Eco system has no direct connection to Climate Change, which in-turn could destroy our future generations environment.
Survival is not about what is right or wrong, for only when it happens will that be known. The whole point of survival is not letting anything that could be wrong from happening.’
What do you think? Do you think it is a good comparison to use?
I also saw this quote on a different forum:
Quote# ‘water vapour is the biggest greenhouse gas, co2 is well down the list and considered irrelevant by the real scientists’

With which I answered with this: ‘Its a vicious circle. We produce Methane(us, cows ect), CO2(industry and lifestyle) and chop down the trees(CO2 regulator). This in-turn heats the planet just enough to melt a bit more ice(main sun ray reflector) and vaporise a bit more water(biggest green house gas) than would have normally happened. This in-turn heats the planet a bit more which melts a bit more ice, vaporises a bit more water, maybe dries out a few peat bogs and so on. While at the same time we increase our activities of pollution, consumption and destruction.
What chance has she got?
And why are some of you lot prepared to take the risk of losing our futures standard of life, just because you aren’t prepared to sacrifice your lifestyles?’
The reason why I seem a bit harsh at the end was because some of the previous posts on the thread were very blunt in the fact that human activity wasn’t having any impact on the Eco system and that anyone who said otherwise had a hidden agenda.
I would be interested in knowing what words you use to fight your corner when you come across the enemy.
