1: We tend to look at the issue of global
2: warming like it’s a distant threat, far
3: into the future, that we can worry about
4: when it is more convenient. The fact is
5: that global warming is an imminent threat
6: to us.
7: Atmospheric temperature increases of even
8: one or two degrees Celsius can affect the
9: weather patterns across the world, creating
10: massive hurricanes and devastating typhoons.
11: Even worse, the temperature increases will
12: cause glaciers to melt, affecting worldwide
13: sea levels. Should we wait until our streets
14: are flooded? Should we wait until our
15: children are malnourished from changing crop
16: yields? Or should we take action now, while
17: things are still settled, before it is
18: simply too late? The choice is in our hands.
19: If you listen to the news and the latest
20: scientific reports, you’ve probably heard
21: about the grave danger of something they
22: call “global warming.” Within years, the
23: Earth is projected to be one big natural
24: disaster, complete with flooding and
25: tornadoes and the works. Well, I’m here
26: to tell you not to believe the hype.
27: In the 50’s it was nuclear war; in the 60’s,
28: it was the population boom. Even in the 70’s,
29: scientists were projecting catastrophic global
30: cooling. Every generation has its impending
31: disaster, and this generation is no different.
