Over the years at the U.N. climate talks, the goal has been to keep future global warming [url="http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/ezra-klein/post/faq-can-the-durban-climate-talks-avert-catastrophe/2011/12/09/gIQAADqzhO_blog.html"]below 2

They seem to think that if everyone meets their CO2 targets then the temperature increases will never happen. It's going to happen like it or not. It's just a matter of how well we can prepare for it and how much we can slow it down.

Global Warming is one of those issues where people have based their opinions on emotion and not facts. The vast (very vast) majority of people are not even qualified to give an opinion about Global Warning; prepare for an influx of opinion based on ignorance that is about to hit this thread.

Between extinction of most ocean life due to acidification and overfishing, a dramatic rise of temperature, and quick depletion of natural resources, life on earth is going to be much more difficult in a few decades. This era of ever-increasing economic production and resource abundance has peaked and will soon be history.

This is all due to short-term, egoistical planning, but perhaps that is an innate trait in humans that will lead to our demise. We're programmed to care about our own short, insignificant individual lives rather than the good of the species as a whole; this has worked well up until a certain level of technological advancement, but is proving counter-productive today. Unfortunately we're not about to reprogram ourselves to adapt to this new reality and evolution will not act in time, if it ever could.

Meanwhile, half of the United States still thinks greenhouse gas emissions are no big deal and drive F-150s to go to work every day.

I agree. If we don't change our life styles rapidly, the world as we know it will be rapidly changing in the next few years.I hope everyone likes hot weather.
