Another rant about global temperature changes.

Chart showing the increase in global temperature over the last half century.

I don't know what to make of it, so I side with the people who are kicking up a fuss. There's no point being one of those who'd rather not face up to facts just because it means dealing with change. Governments are the ones who are most to blame. Those bastards know we're no better than sheep, but they still don't give us any direction. They leave it to the NGOs, who are the ones governments are always trying hardest to discredit.

If you've never taken the time to find out about the warming of the planet then Wikipedia's articles on the subject are a pretty good place to start.

The Natural Resources Defense Council is also a good website if you want to know more about what's happening to the world. But, the real question is - does anyone really care?

Maybe a few do, but do the majority of people in the world really care about what could happen to a place where they won't even be in 60, 70, 80 years time? Haven't we got better things to spend our time worrying about, and hell to some nonsense about a one degree rise in global temperatures over the next fifty years?
