  • I challenge any intelligent person who believes in man made global warming to research reports by scientists not working for governments & scientists who are in the pockets of governments & decide for themselves weather Global Warming is man made or not. If anybody genuinely cares about what is happening to our planet please invest some of your spare time in researching both schools of thought.

    The dangers facing our planet are serious, but you will conclude that all is not what it seems !

    @iMSoHigh420ritenow Global Warming is one thing; Fossil fuels scarcity (Oil peak, rise of oil price, etc.) is another thing. Developing a low-carbon economy involve more than climate change mitigation, but also energy security (less dependance to the Saudi), creation of jobs, sustainable land management, intelligent growth opportunities for developing countries, reasonnable price for your mobile transportation fuel and so on… Get yourself one of these Yellow-for-Dummie book.
