The dream of a global citizen

Too bad no human will survive to witness it. By the rate we're going, no human will survive to witness the next century.

Mirvat, it is totally freaky here in Detroit. Allow me to give a bit of a local report:

Usually here in Detroit it begins to lightly snow in mid-November and by mid to late December the snow gets intense until it piles up by mutiple feet. After shovelling it, the pile-up on everyone's lawn is up to one's waist, and stays that way until it starts melting in late february or early march. this whole scenario usually includes 3-5 major, horrendous, overwhelming, instantaneous overnight snowstorms. It's been that way ever since I remember, since my first year in Michigan (1978,) and I am told it was just as huge before that. So now it's mid January and... we've had virtually NO SNOW!! it has not been cold enough to snow. We've had 2-3 not-worth-mentioning flurries what seemed to be like snowflakes, which lasted for a couple of hours and melted once the snowflakes touched the ground.

Let's move to the moon.

you too lirun

ibj and layoul, i know!! no snow in nyc and we had 72 deg the other day!! i hate the winter but this is just progressing at a terrifying speed. i heard polar bears are not hibernating anymore.. also i saw this study about frogs disappearing from long island at an alarming rate which has implications for humans..
it might be that the frog thing is a speedy evolutionary process and it might be that global warming is bound to happen and we're bound to be extinct as part of the natural selection... we are speeding it up nonetheless and i don't want it to happen at my time!! :)

Our good old friend, Mr Bush seems to Disagree. type "Bush on global warming" into any search engine.

He as sure about that Global warming is "work of the bureaucracy", as he is about the victory in Iraq.

As for me, I hated snow anyway. But it is a little scary here in the Midwest without any snow at this time of year.

Nahhhhhhh, cheer up Mirvat!
Only a few polar bears will suffer for a period of time.
Thereafter, due to the interruption of the gulf stream, we actually will see an other ice age.
Perhaps humans will chill a bit then ...
