Wow. As if this is breaking news. Think a minute. The worlds population has tripled since WW2. People exhale carbon dioxide. Trees convert carbon dioxide in photosynthesis and releases Oxygen. Decrease the forest and vegetation and increase the carbon dioxide emission from people, and Global Warming becomes chicken little. Global Warming may be the result of major climatic changes or the result of the above. I disagree with the conclusions interated by Al Gore and the environmentalists that it is caused by industrial carbon dioxide emissions from industry. Along with the advances in the industrial age there has come about many lateral advances; among them medicine, thus increasing life span and increased population. A higher standard of living throughout the world has consumed more products and deforestation due wood related products. Should the US bring its economy down by enacting conservation measures in attempts to reduce carbon dioxide emissions to appease the rest of the world that refuses to act responsibly? Can mankind at this stage of so called Global warming even stop or delay the process, if the deforestation and population increase? Somehow, my logic tells me no to all the questions above. What is the answer? One thing is for sure; if the doom and gloomers are correct, the population and products consumed will be substantially reduced, thus reducing emissions into the atmosphere and eventual balance between O2 and CO2.
