Common Sense
It makes little difference what we as citizens may 'believe' when the scientific evidence provides empirical data via the isotoepes of atmospheric gases of the planet that attest via unimpeachable evidence. It boils down to an easily umderstood allegory. First ask yourself what an Ostrich sees when it buries its head in the sand. A simple metaphor. Then ask can the human species afford to continue on a path that will clearly result in havoc, pain and catasphe for all mankind due to an unwillingness to put aside the willful ignorance of whatever group when contrasted with the overall survivability of the race in an ecosytem that will become untenable and will do so not gradually but in an exponential tipping point when the forces that govern large systems of scale surpass the capacity of the planetary evironment to provide the balance of conditions which make life possible in that system. It will enter into a realm descibed by 'Catastrophe Theory' when negative input overwhelms Nature's capciyy to self regulate therby exposing all human life to imminent extinction if not super radical degradation. Political, economic and social norms will be rapidly destroyed when It passes that point. I like to use as an example the Haline (cold) current that is the twin if you will of the gulf stream. It exists on the floor of the Atlantic and the same quantum electrodynamic force regulating it does likewise the gulf stream current. The amount of melt produced by the ever increasing Greenland Ice Sheet decay sinks to the floor of the ocean and will when it has sufficiently grown cut the Haline Current therby affecting the gulf stream current. At that point Europe will be drawn into an inexorable freeze due to this massive interference. The consequences will be beyond human imagining. Sadly even if we approched this challenge with the lack of force neccesary to reverse it today we may well have missed our physical window of opportunity and the disater will have become a fait accompli. There is simply no quater that may be given to the aquiescence to pander to the ignorance of those few intransigents. Mankind will act promptly or suffer the unambiguous result inherent in the immutable physical laws governing Nature itself and by definition "ourselves" JGW Lesko; poet/inventor Sunday, June 6th, 2010 at 8:40 p.m. Eastern Time.

Not quite yet with current affairs podcasts of this quality. The BBC at its best.

Mr
BREXIT In the process of leaving ANY club, if one asked the club for a special deal or arrangement one would not expect to get much sympathy nor positive response. Why therefore use BBC licence payers' money to travel to 4 countries in Europe and ask the question? BBC proper-gender at its best!Read full review »
