I did not plan to open this thread now but I have no reason to wait.
I see that people are disscussing environmental issues on this forum from time to time. So I have decided to open a thread that covers all of those issues. One thing is to disscus them one by one and another thing is to mix them in order to form a bigger picture.
I have already created some similar threads but this time I am ready to invest more time and effort then before.
Just for the record I don't classify my self when it comes to politics and I don't see myself as one of those typical environmentalists. (since I am not)
From experiance I know that majority of people are not likely to believe in things that involve the end of the world as we know it.
On the other hand I think that we are on a highway to a disaster of global proportions and that we will get there in a few years. (decade if we are lucky)
So here is in what I am interested: Why people think that the world as we know it will remain standing for a long time? I am interested in what makes you say/think something like that.
Also I would like that this thread stays free from high tensions. Since this is designed as an exchange of ideas. All forum members are welcome.
If you have a question about this kind of thing feel to ask.
