it will more than pay for itself with all the $$$ you'll save on gas.

first of all... chavez is nut... maybe he's right (without knowing it , thank God) saying that capitalism contributes to contamination but he's in a stupid battle against USA and the capitalist countries, and he's ignoring the real problems of venezuela, leading that blind, blah blah, war.

I think this, if luxux hotels wouldn't have been built by multinationals 1 meter before the shore in Indonesia, maybe a few hundreds people wouldn't have died.........................in this sense, Capitalism caused a natural disaster....................

The natural disaster, the seaquake, wasn't caused by the hotels, only the human desaster, the thousands that were killed.

Capitalism or not, the Earth, being a master of self-preservation, will always adapt to changing conditions. If the ice caps melt, the mass infusion of cold fresh water into the warm salt water of the Atlantic Ocean will probably choke the Gulf Stream and repeat the conditions of the 1000 year "Younger Dryas" 12,000 years ago.

In short, expect "global warming" to be followed up by a 1000 year Ice Age (the time it would take to recreate the Gulf Stream). While the whole world would be affected by such a major climate change, the main "victims" would be those who currently benefit the most from the warming effects of the Gulf Stream--Europe. Much of the continent will become as uninhabitable as Northern Canada.

One thing is for sure, mankind will not see the end of the earth.
At the moment, we are setting our own end.

Sounds like a natural cycle to me.

It is, to a point. It was previously expected that we'd enter a new Ice Age around the year 3500. But there's a good chance that man has merely accelerated the process. Now it's expected that the Arctic ice cap will melt completely by the year 2100, meaning our 1000 year Ice Age shall be coming a lot sooner than nature intended.

But, whether weather cycles are created by nature or by man, the Earth is a ball of science like everything else, and science does have coping methods that will prevent us from "global warming" into 700 degree temperatures like on Venus.

which real problems do you feel chavez is ignoring? after all his government, since being democratically elected, has provided such vital services as healthcare and education to people who had previously never seen a doctor or the inside of a classroom. i think extreme poverty, illiteracy and poor health were significant problems in venezuela and chavez has done more than any previous venezuelan government to tackle them. so what in your view are the real problems being ignored?

Building next to the sea or almost within the sea is a well prelude to death.......................It happens when nature doesn't get respected
