i just watched, a global warning? on the history channel. this show was pretty good.
one of the more striking ideas that i learned from the show is that there are natural global warming/coding cycles. a lot of people have said that our warming is just natural. but, what i learned from the show, is that scientist believe that earth should be in its cooling cycle now. but, we are getting hotter. they said, that this proves that man made global warming is real.
the danger is if we destroy the natural global cycle who knows what is going to happen. the belief is that our pollution will amplify the cycles. extreme code and extreme hot - levels that we haven't seen since the massive weather changes that killed the dinosaurs.
there are a lot of new programs on global warming hitting tv now days. National Geographic has some good shows. like this one coming out: Six Degrees: could change the world (feb 10). CNN, Discovery, 20/20 and 60 Minutes have also put out some shows.
as steve would say, now we just have to do something about it. the more i think about it, the more i'd like to work in this area. i started to think how i can contribute. one way, i think is educational software (something i know nothing about). not sure where to start.
