    Over the years we learned the advantage of rotating crops, refrigeration, using natural gas and electricity instead of firewood and so on. A lot of the good things we do now is the result of past experience. We will move forward and learn to survive.

    I agree with you, it will probably be too late until we do something, and we will end up facing huge consequences because of it.

    I will not disagree with you, but federal regulations always trump state regulations. One point you miss is convenience. My state was mandated to use reformulated fuel--cost more--the environmental activists wanted to sue the EPA to stop the order.

    That doomsday mantra has already proven to be fatal for some Gloomy Goth types. I agree that those who want children or have them should not have to raise kids as they did in the Cold War Era..air raid practices and bomb shelters.

    My city has a recycling program and we participate in it actively--finding better ways of disposals would be better. People buying less would help. Everyone does not accept Global warming as it is presented here. There is a lot we do not know.

    You mention over population and the religious would deny. Do you want the government telling you how many children you can have and if you did not comply would their be a penalty -- sounds like "1984"

    Not quite true. We have the technology. Anti-environment lobbyists prevent that technology from being implemented.

    I was thinking that we will end our existence more so from too much pollution in oceans, freshwater, clean air, forests, and other things, reducing the amount of renewable/necessary resources we have.
