Why bother?

Advantages"Everyone knows what must be done about climate change…"

Disadvantages"…but no one is doing anything." (The Economist, 23 November 2013)

"...rely for life and livelihood is dire. These findings are presented in the least hysterical possible tone, with due weight being given to all the inevitable uncertainties, and are supported by an exhaustive body of evidence. I am not going to reiterate all that evidence here; the website reference for the report is below for those who want to study it in detail and acquaint themselves with the facts, together with the reference for a synopsis of ..."

A Stern Look at Global Warming Review with images

Advantages The report looks at what the WORLD has to do

DisadvantagesThe WORLD might not agree to the terms.

"...for the UK Government, it is notable for being the first report on the topic that has actually been written by an economist and not a scientist. Not only that, until a little over a year ago he was pretty neutral to the debate. Although the report is some 700 pages long, Stern states that to tackle Climate Change we need to invest as little as 1% of our Gross Domestic Product (GDP), however on the other side of the debate, if we do nothing, it is ..."

Thank you and enjoy. Global warming is a very delicate and complex subject; far beyond the understanding of a naïve 18 year old, but I have decided to tackle the matter based on my opinions and evidence I have found from various sources. I cannot say that I am writing ..." Read review

The End of Days? Review with images

AdvantagesWe all might get better suntans

DisadvantagesMillions of people could possibly die! A new Ice Age?

"...the best I can do is form my own opinion from reports I read and from my own observations of the weather. But I AM an inhabitant of this wonderful world that we all live in, and I have to admit that the concept of global warming is a topic that has been concerning me for quite some considerable time. ~ ~ What finally prompted me to put fingers to keyboard was a report released here in Ireland during the past week that states that overall mean ..."

The year after next

AdvantagesNone if we carry on as we are

DisadvantagesThe destruction of the Earth

"Is global warming an urgent danger? Basically I feel it is a very urgent danger but one that can not any longer be solved or dealt with to any extent. In my opinion it is far too late to realistically deflect to any great effect any of the major damage this is causing or is going to cause to the planet and the species that live on it. Having been an ardent gardener and person who take much notice of nature, plants, animals, and the environment ..." Read review
