      The majority of scientists believe that global warming is being caused by greenhouse gases which have accumulated in the atmosphere for the past 100 years since the beginning of the industrial revolution. The principal greenhouse gas is carbon dioxide released through the combustion of coal in electric power plants and by motor vehicles through the burning of fuels made from oil--gasoline and diesel.

      Of course, natural factors beyond our control also affect the global climate--for example, variations in the energy released by the sun.

      Well, how do we do it? The "greedy commercial giants" seem to have a lot of influence over government policies and the passage of laws.

      We do not need the scientists or the governement to tell us anything about global warmiong, what we need is to eliminate the greedy commercial giants those that deforestate this planet and you have the problem solved. I know what you will say now what about the motor car? the poluting factories? well the answer is again, the greedy giants, think about it.
