Blog Action Day - Climate change, virgin birth, flat earth.

Climate change, I have to admit that I’m very skeptical about the existence of climate change and the whole global warming thing. My basis for this is that we (humans) have only been here for such a short time and for a large period of that were not really in a position to judge what was happening around us. An even smaller period of time is the length of time we have been able to accurately measure things like temperature or the size of the ice caps, so to be able to say that things are changing outside of the norm, when we really have no idea what the norm is, is like seeing a snow flake and predicting the start of an ice age.

Now I known that lots of very important people seem to have been convinced that there is a problem but remember past world leaders and experts also had some strange ideas (flat earth, virgin birth, communist ruling the plant, woman’s heads over heating if they learn too much).

Are they right or are they wrong, I really do not know, I personally think that we do not have enough data to make a definitive statement and that a lot of what we hear is sensationalized.

But.

Can we really take the risk, we know the earth is round, but at one point someone had to be the first to say it, (imagine what he got called by the experts of the day) so they may be right, we may be doing harm to our world, we have no spare, this is our only one, now is not the time to play the odds. You all have insurance of some sort, you hope it is something you never need, would you just cancel it all and still sleep at night, the cost of doing something is like paying insurance, the price of doing nothing is a lot higher.

Picture today is called my world too.
