Global Warming, Climate Change, call it what you will it makes no difference. Neither does the scientific evidence.
THIS ARTICLE WAS FIRST WRITTEN MORE THAN FOUR YEARS AGO AND IS REPRODUCED AND EDITED
FOLLOWING THE RECENT UNITED NATIONS RIGHTFULLY SCAREY REPORT. WLL WORLD LEADERS TAKE ACTION?
I say this as a scientist. Why? Because the Earth’s climate is a natural system. It will only work well when all the parts are working well.
Your body is a natural system, I rest my case.
Your car is a man-made system, you know what it should be doing because it was designed to work.
Natural systems evolve, they are not made. Tinker with the parts and other parts will do their best to take over or repair damage, unlike cars!
We have tinkered with the Earth’s systems as have earthquakes, volcanoes, tsunamis and other natural events.
Is there any point in arguing who is to blame? Every living thing ‘born’ on Earth has a right to live here.
If we want an inhabitable Earth for ourselves and future generations we need to act, not talk.
We cannot control ‘nature’ only try to predict and at the same time work out any possible ways that we can to protect Earth’s population.
How? Reuse, recycle and be responsible. Wind turbines, great – give me one! Waste recyclers and incinerators have had a bad press.
They are safe and environmentaly friendly, I wouldn’t mind living near one.
( Try googleing SELCHP) . SELCHP is the South East London Combined Heat and Power station.
They recycle all that they can and incinerate the rest. The by product of incineration is heat.
The piping is laid all the way to the local council flats, but no heat flows – Politics and grant conditions!!!!
Why? Because SELCHP get a government subsidy to incinerate waste. If they sold the heat they produce they would lose their subsidy.
Just like people who live on ‘benefits’ because they say they can’t afford to work!
I will close this rant by citing my neighbours’ s—-dity. They have had a large conservatory built on the north side of the house.
They can and do use it in all weathers because it has heating and air conditioning!!
It must be nearly time to pay the winter energy bills.
Bye for now
