Yes, Saint Paul actually talks against that line of reasoning in one of his letters to a church in the city of Thessalonica, a church full of people who were so focused on preparing for an imminent departure from this earth that they were living irresponsibly. His advice: "Get jobs, work hard, and be faithful."

It's pretty clear from Genesis that God told us to care for the earth, to tend it and look after it. Not to use and abuse it.

Maybe, but this is unrelated to Y2K:

"Major retailers in New York, in areas of New England, and on the West Coast are limiting purchases of flour, rice, and cooking oil as demand outstrips supply. There are also anecdotal reports that some consumers are hoarding grain stocks.

^^^^^^^^^


God might not make "everything alright" again, since "he" gave humankind freewill (yes I read the article about desicions being made unconsciously before we decide what actions to do .-- means if we screw up..... we get to learn the lessons of respect for the earth and the beings on it besides our selves--maybe is in some kind of re-go around.

(I am no longer a Catholic/Christian, not an atheist either. My concept of God is rather different now. Just saying what i've said here from the perspective of what I was taught/picked up lateron at an {ecummenical} Episcopal church . Just so you know where I'm coming from. )

Ted Turner spilled some of the storyline. Apparently it's going to be "hotter in... 30 or 40 years," "none of the crops will grow" and "Most of the people will have died and the rest of us will be cannibals."

Sounds exactly like the plot of Soylent Green to me but maybe the sfx will be better this time.

Anyway, I'll catch An Inconvenient Truth 2: Carbon Neutral Boogaloo at the drive-in from the comfort of my SUV.

the meat industry is (apparently) responsible for one of the biggest demands on our environment
so maybe Gore will talk about this in the sequel

though I sort of doubt it

The lost cause is common sense.


We place global warming at the top of our concerns

while millions are starving and wars (and threat of war) ravage our planet

abortion is common and of no concern to many

murder of another human being does not shock

families torn apart

children without fathers or mothers





we are numb

And what you and many don't see is that if we were actually more sustainable we could reduce war and starvation.

Wrong.

Wrong again.

Yet some would rather keep these children without love due to their narrow strict definitions of what "parents" should be...

Global warming will have the most impact on the poor. Drought, extreme weather patterns and rising sea levels will impact the most on "third world" countries. And starvation is likely to cause more wars. Have you heard of the food riots in various parts of the world lately?

I don't undertand why people don't see that we depend on the planet being in good condition for our very existence. If we continue to treat the planet this way, what will we breath? What will we eat?

I think that those who are worried about global warming are concerned for more reasons than you seem to understand.

Global warming and yet it still snows on the west coast of the good old United States in late April/early May. Anyway, we'll probably solve global warming as soon as we find out, and successfully employ a substitute for oil.
