Warming of the Globe…

Time to mix it up.  How about a post on global warming?  This is quite a popular topic currently and it looks like it is finally shifting in the correct direction, people are starting to believe in global warming.  I personally believe that the earth is warming and I also believe that humans have something to do with it.  Now there is evidence for and against this.  Both sides have valid arguments and both could be correct.  But the real issues lie in if we should do something about global warming even if it doesn’t exist.

Now you can see people every day that fight for or against doing something about it.  Now on the argument of global warming we really do not know if we are the cause of it.  The earth heats and cools for other reasons, axis wobble, the area we are located somewhere in our never ending galactic revolutions, etc.  Please do not post saying it is a scientific fact that we are the cause…period.  That is not the point of this post.  The point is should we change our actions toward global warming?  Here is another argument we should look at.

So we know that greenhouse gasses are bad.  If you were to inhale CO2 or NO2 you would um…..DIE.  Little extreme but if locked in a room with these gasses it wouldn’t take long for you to succumb to the all mighty.  So why do we think it would be OK to pump millions of tons of these gasses into our atmosphere. Shouldn’t we do something about pumping these dangerous gasses into the air we breath?  I do not believe we should worry so much about the fact that they are warming our earth as much as we should look at the fact that these gasses are poisonous to most animals on the planet earth.  If you were not suicidal would you start a car in your garage with the doors closed?  NO!  So why do we pump it into our atmosphere.

The argument stated above, I think, has a lot of merit.  Some may say the earth is to large for humans to ever pump enough poisons gasses into the atmosphere to cause harm to humans.  But I am not so sure that this argument really holds ground anymore.  Humans have finally become a force to throw off nature.  We have the power to terraform our world.  We can destroy worlds now.  But any species with the power to destroy has the same power in the opposite direction.  We have options now to use other non polluting gases.  We are very close to producing cars that only produce water, we have cars that run on air.  The ability to pump your car up with air and run a vehicle, wow.  Why may I ask, do we still feel it is necessary to dispose of millions to billions of tons of toxins into our atmosphere.  Who cares if it harms the environment….IT HARMS US.  Isn’t the whole point of human nature….really the point of any living organism self preservation?  Yes, yes it is.
