In parallel, I watched a Discovery program on the anticipated demise of Alaska (and by extension Canada and Siberia ). They showed an ice desert wilderness being replaced by a mid latitude forest, and said this was a tragedy.
1. We're thinking too much from a human perspective and not enough from an ecosystem perspective.2. I even think that a global catastrophe that would kill, say 75% of humanity (random nr., not based on facts), would be a blessing for our planet
peppercorn,Nice rhetoric, but you overlooked two things in my earlier post.
I even think that a global catastrophe that would kill, say 75% of humanity (random nr., not based on facts), would be a blessing for our planet....I completely agree with all your statements, but Global Climate Change, at any Rate of Change is not a concern for our planet, only for humanity.
In a sort of a way, that might not be such a bad thing because it would force us to recognize that this is an immediate problem rather than something we can leave for future generations to deal with.
