Does global warming actualy exist?. The reason why I ask this is because we are constantly being told that the weather is either wetter, colder, windier, etc etc, since some year , years ago. We have just been told that here in the U.K., this summer is going to be wetter and colder than usual. OK, fair enough. Then some bright spark tells us that the last time this happened was back in 1600 and something!. Now it doesn't take a rocket scientist to realise that the problems associated with global warming, pollution, emissions, etc, etc, did not exist back in the 15th, and 16th, centuries. So what are we to believe?. There is no doubt whatsoever that man is killing the planet and all it's life forms. When the last human being breathes his last breath, mother nature will breath a sigh of relief and say'' thank god''.

One planet meets the other.

"What's the matter - you don't look to well?"

"Oh, yeah, I've got human!"

"Don't worry. That'll pass!"

So what are we to believe?. There is no doubt whatsoever that man is killing the planet and all it's life forms.Unfortunately, this argument, whilst being well intentioned, is very unscientific. Mankind is certainly not helping matters by burning fossil fuels etc but to say that man is killing the planet is inverted flattery on mankind's part. Put it into perspective: In the last hundred years, our atmosphere has absorbed more life threatening pollutants through the action of the earth itself (mainly volcanic eruptions) than during the entire history of the human race.

In the long term, humans will only harm humans. The planet will sort itself out......it's been through worse.
