Well there are two view-points to global warming. 1) It's natural This conclusion is made by a heaping mound of evidence from all over the world from all different cultures. Of course this takes some faith in prophecy/astrology, and a fact that our ancestors have witnessed this before, etc. 2) It's man made. Yeah there is a lot of pollution, and i am speaking of air pollution specifically as opposed to gorund pollution, but it is usually in concentrated spots. In L.A./Holywood, for example, which is a mountanous-coastal area, the winds from the ocean are not strong enough to carry the dense pollution over the mountains. That's why it's always hazy there. The problem with this conclusion is that people only see what they want to see. For example, you have 8 million people living in New York's Manhattan island. Anyone living there is going to think their "world" is "over-crowded". Maybe THEIR world is over-crowded, but THE world is not. The entire population of the world could fit into the size of Rhode Island comfortably and COULD fit into the size of Jacksonville, Florida with room to spare. There is a huge world out there where there is plenty of room for pollution to be filtered through nature's way of self-cleansing; oceans and trees and soil. Gettting back to the issue. If it is happening naturally then we are not going to have an ice-age no matter how hot it becomes. WARMING, in of itself, cannot create an ice-age. The planets will adjust, who knows why they do in the first place, but they are and the will and it will finish. All things will be peacefully happy with the self-cleansing. If it is happening from the work of man, then there is a build-up of Co2 (that would in reality take hundreds of years from now) that will block the Sun's warming waves. So, after the warming waves are stopped, the INITIAL heat will dissipate and there you have your ice-age. What's an ice-age? No, the ENTIRE planet was never covered with ice before, it's always been around the Sun. Well, how could we have ice-ages in the past when there were no Co2 emissions coming from fossil fules? It must be a natural order! It's a shift of the magnetic poles. The axis shifts, the magnetic poles shift, certain parts of the Earth are closer to the Sun during summer, for example, than before so the seasons change as well. The only reason why we have seasons is because of the angle of the Sun's radiation in relationship to the place that is cold. If you have a sphere to your left and a sphere to your right O--o the radiating waves from the sphere on the left do not hit directly on the surface near the top of the sphere on the right, they are mostly reflected. When the axis tilts, those poles will be closer to the Sun. It is not "democracy" the US wants to spread in the middle-east, it's capitalism. The same vice that will have you believe false ideas (Y2K for example) to get you to BUY stuff! The irony is that because it's backed by scientists, it's the major corporations that need to change to be more green -more than anyone else. The only problem is, free-energy technology has existed for almost 150 years. Each "piece" of "newgen" technology will come out every Xdecade before they lose trillions in money.
