Having recently read the latest report* by the Intergovernmental Committee on Climate Change, I am more than ever convinced that the findings will fall on deaf ears, or at least on ears that might as well be deaf for all the action their owners will take as a result of listening. My own ears, in...

The Stern Report was released in October 2006. This lengthy document takes an international perspective on the challenge of Climate Change/Global Warming, and the impacts on the Economy if we do nothing/act now. Written by Sir Nicholas Stern for the UK Government, it is notable for being the...

Please note this review focuses more on the issue about man's involvement in global warming rather than whether it is an urgent danger. This is the only review subject I could put it under, so please rate based on the content rather than its relation to the title. Thank you and enjoy. Global...

~ ~ This topic has been listed in the Ciao café category for some time, but to date I’ve shied away from writing about it for the simple reason that it’s such a complex and complicated subject that it’s very hard to know exactly what the truth about global warming actually is. Also, I’m certainly...

ProNone if we carry on as we are

ContraThe 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...

Climate change is a controversial subject that many scientists can’t agree on, so I don’t pretend I can provide an answer, but I do hope to provide some background and information to the debate. The Earth has been around for 4.6 billion years, and has experienced considerable natural...

After writing a few non-serious ops, I thought I'd put up a serious opinion. Although this was an essay I wrote for University, I feel some of you may like to have a read. Apologies for the length (please don't give up!) :), but I hope you enjoy a more scientific stance on a secondary issue of...
