EARTH - Its Future is NOW!


This is a WHINE list you do not have to uncork.

Simply take your WHINING (on any topic) and add it to the
COMMENTS below.



 Feb 20th 2012
It is about time I pulled the cork on another WHINE session.

This time I want to whine about those who think global warming
is a fairy tale, thought up by people with political axes
to grind and agendas to cultivate.  

 
 
I am as savvy as the next writer.  I read the newspapers, listen to the BBC, NPR and OPB. I watch CNN, TV science programs, and anything to do with global warming - both for and against!  I read Time Magazine weekly.  What is it about the thorough scientific research and knowledge that has gone into the process of learning about global warming, and its effects, that is hard for some folks to grasp.   Good lord, all these egg heads break it down into sound bites that people like you and me can easily understand.
.
WHAT IS THEIR PROBLEM?
DON'T THEY TRUST SCIENCE?
DO THEY REALLY THINK THESE  GUYS ARE PAID TO LIE?

.
DO THEY HAVE AN ALTERNATIVE REASON FOR GLACIERS
AND THE POLES TURNING INTO  GIANT GLASSES
OF ICE WATER, ASAP?

 When science communities world wide agree that our world is heating up at a rate never before experienced, I tend to believe them.  They come bearing facts, figures, and extrapolations that make sense. So I want to help do whatever is necessary, RIGHT NOW, to make sure my grand- kids can still see the glory of glaciers, the polar bear in it's icy and pristine habitat, and the major tropical forests, earth's lungs, pumping out pure oxygen - without too lethal a dose of carbon dioxide to absorb in return.  I want our oceans to be there in all their glory, not fished out, and losing saline content faster than you can say beached whale!



If we don't believe the FUTURE IS NOW,
then there will be NO FUTURE planet
for our great grand-kids to inherit.
 


This is more than a WHINE mates. . .

THOSE WHO REFUSE TO BELIEVE IN GLOBAL WARMING ARE
FRITTERING AWAY OUR  ECOLOGICAL HERITAGE.  
THEY ARE TAMPERING WITH THE
RESOURCES
OF FUTURE
GENERATIONS. . .







OF OUR FAMILIES!



We must find ways to  conserve energy,  discover alternative fuels and power,  be ecologically  wise and pro-active.   It is time to stop taking this wonderful world and all its bounty for granted.  PLANT TREES, not cut them down.  Preserve what is unique and vital to our future.




WE ARE SMART - 
We went to the moon. We rocketed into outer space and sent back pictures.  
We invented fire, the wheel and the Internet.


Let's save out planet before it is too late.



Please. . .

My WHINE RULES
1 - You CAN DRINK wine while spilling your beans in "comments."
2 - 4 letter words that have to do with sex or bodily functions will be CORKED!
  3- You can tell readers what pisses you off royally - just do it in a "literary" manner.
4 - Be a GRINCH if you must, but humor always earns a gold star!
5 - THINK before you write - or at least before you hit SEND. 

 6 - BE  SMART
Do not WHINE about stuff that could get you
jailed, sued, divorced, or otherwise spanked!


This is my road - so MY rules apply.
(Whine about it if you like. . .)

  1. Hear! Hear! Margot. I, too, stand with those who would preserve the beauty and majesty of the world for future generations. I often wonder what kind of world the children of our grandchildren will live in. Simply hoping for the best is not enough.

  3. I'm convinced the cause of global warming is skateboarders. They jump up and down so much they've tipped the planet. Of course I'm just kidding and it really is a serious problem, but, as many people point out, global warming has happened in the past without help from humans. Let's focus on other problems caused by the pollution, etc., such as poor air quality and toxins in food and what those do to our health instead of arguing about the cause of global warming.

  4. Hey there Janet, thanks for your thoughts on this. Let's keep our eye on those skateboarders too. . .

    I agree this planet has endured global warming in other millennium, but in the past it has been a slow process that took hundreds, even thousands of years. Scientists now know that the current trend has grown exponentially in the last decade, when in times past, the same amount of warming took hundreds or more years. That is scary news.

    Yes, pollutants and air quality play their part, along with the fossil fuels so many countries all use. We have to be serious about alternative ways of running cars, industry, and heating and cooling. If we wait too long it will be too late to stop global warming. It is all about big business and big money. They pay lobbyist to make sure politicians and others don't rock their boat.

    How's that for a WHINE that isn't corked!!
