There is indeed that big problem of man making too much bad changes on earth. This is the only one we've got, and no matter what regenerative powers it has, it can't compete with us.
Having said that~ let's move on to an Inconvenient Truth. One statement - my professor in NatSci Natural Science
gave a better lecture on the possible effects of global warming if allowed to continue on than Al Gore. And what is horrible about An inconvenient Truth? I watched and sympathized when he talked of findings and of the visual effects on Earth, I sighed and fidgeted when those strip of his life story and political career all in the name of Earth kept interfering with my understanding of his cause. Seriously man, what is he fighting for? Earth, or his political career? I am at best exasperated and at worst deeply, deeply irritated.
