    Global warming. What do you think of it.

    I thought I'd present this question to the art community here and see what people think.

    What is your opinion about global warming?
    If you believe it's true what do you do about it?

    PS. Hope no one got butt hurt by the earlier tittle. Just curious to see what you think of global warming

    True. Try to reduce my carbon footprint and hope it's not too late. (Although a more morbid part of me kind of hopes it is too late, just because I'm curious to see what, exactly, that would lead to. Although I'm sure the more interesting repercussions won't happen in my lifetime, sadly.)

    Probably true. More to follow. (I'm covered in sheet rock dust right now...)

    Relevant, perhaps.

    Makes me wonder how working digitally vs traditionally impacts the environment. Computers produce a lot of hazardous material during construction and disposal, and they use quite a bit of energy. I think the presentation is wrong about the processor bit though.

    Generally I try to recycle. If I boil pasta I keep the water for watering the garden (it probably has nutrients). Got a compost too. We're pretty good at recycling in Sweden I think, but afaik the major players are the mines, factories and transports.

    false, the bears are hiding the ice underwater.

    (TRUE)

    I think that even if it isn't true we would probably do some good by looking after the environment (I think global warming is the truuf)

    I don't think it's a matter of belief. I think it's a matter of research.

    Belief is what you really want something to be- I think everyone would love for it not to be happening, but nothing ever got fixed by pretending there wasn't anything wrong. It's not 'believe this or believe that', it's 'accept what appears by all reckoning to be the case or believe that everyone and everything are lying to you.'
    We shall not cease from exploration
    And the end of all our exploring
    Will be to arrive where we started
    And know the place for the first time.

    There is so much info and so much data.

    Just open your eyes.

    http://www.ipcc.ch/

    Take your time and read the site.

    Every forum board seems to want to discuss this but there are always people who don't seem to want to open their eyes.

    Both and neither. Scientists are changing their minds all the time; in the ‘70s we were heading for a mini ice age. Regardless, I recycle loads more than I chuck and think we should all take more care of the planet.

    When your title says "Global warming, True or hoax."

    You're pretty much discrediting the work of tens of thousands of people. I think at least looking at the data and opening your eyes before you start a very volatile topic like this is to be expected. Or do you feel I am mistaken?

    Have to reply real quick before hitting the sack.

    Elwell&Aurelyx: I wanted the tittle to give you the chance to express your opinion of the subject whether you believe global warming is true or not. There are billions of people in this world who BELIEVE it's hoax because they haven't seen it, heard about it or they are in denial about it whether it's the lack of information or the overwhelming fact that it is like from a science fiction movie

    More to come about my personal opinion...
