Positive Effects of Global Warming

>> Monday, October 20, 2008

Okay, I know what you are thinking... there is NOTHING positive about global warming. Well, you are wrong. It's all in how you look at things. In a brilliantly written opinion piece at the BBC website, Russell Mittermeier points out that our very serious climate change issue has rallied together people from all walks of life, of very different backgrounds and united them for a common good. The animals in danger of extinction no longer just have a few "weirdo hippies" to look out for them, now almost everyone is! There is strength in numbers and now, more than ever, are people trying to change how they impact the world ecologically. This is a good thing. So there really is a silver lining to all of this... This gives me a little more hope.

Absolutely right....there are more people now looking out for nature and all she holds.......and I think most of them (although not all) are woman.......

I must agree too! People today really are more aware of our precious Earth. I also read that global warming will take thousands of years to make an impact. Don't really know what to think.

@ Cheryl... It does seem that way, doesn't it?

@ wendy... in the end, if it's a few years, or a thousand years, we know that it DOES have an affect and at least we can provide our future with lovely plants and critters to enjoy.

you see it all around, people are being more conscientious about Mother Earth. And like you said "Behind every dark cloud, there is a silver lining". It's sad that it had to get to this before humanity could realize the damage that has been done, but again, better late than never!
