You really think Bono is celebrating the "me" mentality in this line?

No way
Not at all - he is saying that we are so lucky to be where we are and dont have to face the crap they do - and that we should remember that and perhaps offer a helping hand to those in need

But it does bring home the truth - MANY people think about 'me'

There is nothing wrong in that

That's celebrating.

That line is the equivalent of "You're a douchebag for not caring about other people. "

RE: global warming.

As an Environmental Science student I came to a realisation this week.

While we may be able to cope with the flooding that global warming will cause, we CANNOT deal with the drastic increase in DNA mutation (read: cancer) and crop failiure due to the amount of UV radiation getting though the thinning Ozone layer. Not to mention a load of other shitty concequences.

Kinda shit really.

Global warming also leads to an increase of double posts.

It doesn't rain in Melbourne anymore.....

Fair dinkum, nothing. I remember as a kid growing up in the 90's it used to rain heaps, always had to be kept inside at school cause it was raining.

This month we haven't had a drop. While it is the heart of summer, at least we used to have storms back then, a sudden downpour to fill up the dams. We don't have that anymore.

Today it is 43 degrees, yesterday it was 41, tomorrow is expected to hit 40, and the same on Saturday.

I don't recall heatwaves like this. In Adelaide, they've got like over 7 consecutive days of 40+, yesterday it was 46 over there. Unimaginable.

Global warming can cause changes in atmosphere circulation regime. That will make England enjoy the same climate you can find in Siberia for example, they're both approx. the same latitude. The only reason you don't have -50 Celsius degrees winters in England today is the golf stream (bringing hot air from golf of Mexico area).
