Think of Earth as a complete organism, with several interconnected systems. It is getting a fever and James Lovelock said that by the year 2100 people will have to live in the Arctic to survive. Maybe this is a terminal case, too late to fix.
Depressing. Especially if you consider that earth is partly being kept cool by visible pollution. What if that went away? Real trouble.
Barry's Response - Sounds like great catastrophisizing to me. Could make a great film. Thanks, Reader.
The sun is a light on the earth but if we keep poluting we won't be able to see it and then we will die take care of earth!
Barry's Response - Thank you TT. Some folks have said that blocking sunlight from reaching the ground can help to reduce the effects of globals warming. Some pollutants that block light can also produce vivid sunsets like this one. Having said that, most will agree it is not really a good idea, though. So, yeah. Take care of the earth.
the global warming can be reduced by increasing the use of renewable sources of energy. this decreases pollution and recuces global warming. this can also be reduced by reducing fuel consumption like using public transportation instead of personal etc. this can even be reduced by decreasing the use of CFC's
Barry's Response - thanks Karthick, for the few bits of important advice.
Barry's Response - I'm not worried. There is not enough information to make anyone worried, really. Is this temperature given in Fahrenheit or Celsius? What geographical region and time of year (time of day) was it recorded? Is it a raw temperature, a wind chill or a dewpoint? Was it even outdoors?
In this pic there are wonderful blue hills and i don't want to loose it.......... or the earth please stop global warming polluting just stop being rude to da earth it our HOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Barry's response - Hi Taylor. Nice blue hills. And white elephants, and red hurricanes. Can't forget those either.
btw, taking care of our earth is a really good idea. Thanks.
it's all up to us. if we do not help ourselves who will?! the article is great.
Barry's Response - The earth becomes what the earth becomes...no matter who's in it. It has survived billions (e9) of years before we came along and will continue to do so for billions more after we're gone.
