    Frightening, isn't it?

    I'm trying not to overreact, but there have been several stories like this lately. It's starting to feel like the beginning of one of those science fiction movies where mankind learns that the planet is doomed.

    I was just in Patagonia last month. And it IS alarming. Not even six months back articles like this one were published showing that the Southern Ocean was projected to slow Global Warming. Now, what was regarded as good news, in less than six months, has been updated.

    Well, if it makes you feel any better, it's the skeptics that eat it first. :D

    This is what we get for chopping down and burning the forests. Humans are truly the stupidest creatures on the planet. By a long, long way.

    As long as corporations own politicians, we have a serious problem and even then IF the politicians do anything at all, the responsibiity to implement those changes usually falls on the next administration.

    Some industries will eventually be forced out of business as we come to grips
    with the severity of these problems and they will not go down without a fight.

    These matters must become part of international law with no exclusions.

    That alone will keep us busy for a few decades and by then it may be too late.

    It's going to take something major and deadly to force our hand.

    that might have been changed now that Apple is public with their processes and plans. :p

    we can only hope right? lets just leave it for the next generation or the one after that to deal with, right? /sarcasm.


    this is frightening.

    Where have you been? Unless that was sarcasm, you must have missed Steve's very public statement showing they're actually one of the best. GP's tactics are even hated by Al Gore of all people. Al Gore!

    Who, BTW, is on Apple's board. ;)
