I’m watching this program on BBC1 now with good old David Attenborough.
There are obviously strong views on this. Obviously we are changing the earth but are we doing so much that had it not been for humans, the climate would have been a lot different today?
From evidence of ice ages and investigation into what the earth was like millions of years ago, the temperature has gone up and down only by a few degrees each time. At the moment its only about 4 degrees higher than it was in the last ice age but it’s causing glaciers and polar ice caps to melt and sea levels to rise.
I think that as much as humans try to change lifestyle or blame this on the human race, the earth naturally changes temperture now and again (ie every few millions years), therefore we cant do anything to stop it and we shouldnt.
