Lockington's Everyday Fiji ... Life Goes On

              Global Warming

We now complain about the rising sea level and the unusual heat, and blame global warming. I am told that global warming is debatable, I don’t know if its true or not because I’m not an expert, but I am concerned.

The earth has probably existed for billions of years, I wonder if there was global warming any time back then and what caused it.

All this heat may have been the effects of industrialisation. Many industrialized cities have constant fog over their countries and they are presumed developed. We export scrap metal to China to be made in to steel and exported all over the world. But there are so many other things that can cause the depletion of the ozone layer, how many more years will the earth exist before we, modern man blow in into oblivion.

In maybe just two to three hundred years of modern mans existence we have caused  so much damage and we are rushing to try and reverse it. We have spent billions of dollars going to the moon and mars. Space exploration has depleted so much of our hard earned money. “Our” – meaning mankind.

Every day we read and see on TV that there has been a meeting to try and contain the growing problem. People from all over the world fly by plane to meeting sites every year and use a look of electricity thus contributing to the problem.  And all the talk may be a factor!

And meanwhile Pacific islands slowly go under water.
