Frankly, I couldn't care less. I have terminal cancer, so whatever happens will not affect me. But others may care, and might care to look carefully at a wider picture, and give that picture deep and well planned consideration.
Feebs11, it's hard to say but your option is a selfish one, who knows what is at the other side. That would be the same to say: Why take care of world's health if I am not gonna be alive to see it destroyed.
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Not terrified Clive Woodward. One point is sure: Environment has been damaged and a full restoration is needed, USA and Europe has destroyed almost completely their forests territories while China, India, Brazil and others emerging countries are to be prevented from doing the same.
What do you mean with "go do some homework of your own"?
The question is what would you do, I can see a state of comfortableness not willing to do something of your own.

Brazil has a poor record of preservation of natural resources. It has a poor record in its treatment of native populations. Take a closer look nearer to home before accusing others. And terminal illness has an interesting effect on the way in which life, the Universe and Everything is seen. There is no longer the fear of death, which underlies all the fears about Global Warming. I am more concerned with those who now are unable to find their next meal or who cannot access good medical care than about something that may not happen for several hundred years, and may never happen.
USA and Europe has destroyed almost completely their forests territories
That's news to me...

You are right, Brazil has a poor record of preservation and of treatment of native populations, I agree with you, but....What does UK have to preserve? I think your government 'burned down' everything it could to feed progress starting with Industrial Revolution, which from my point of view was great but too much depredating to natural resources, what is left? probably those areas of difficult access, I suppose.Furthermore, foreigners, mainly UK and USA, are taking our resources from amazing Amazon forest to register as your patents and developing drugs that once more reinforce poor records of preservation of my country.Not a surprise that international community is pushing silently to keep Amazon in an international protected zone, interesting uhn? They have destroyed their resources and will protect ours...that's self giving.
Developed countries have only looked to global warming because was asserted that they could profit a lot more 'healing' nature than harming it, it is the inconvenient truth of capitalism.
What you stated: 'The problem is too much people' was abstract and self-destructible; now you're concerned about people's health conditions and related stuff, what cannot be supported by your earlier statement. Again by scoffing at global warming issue you relatively affirmed: If it is not going to happen now, it's okay, I am not gonna be here too much, that's not up to me; isn't it a way to not secure people's future, those of whom you care so much?
"pushing silently to keep Amazon in an international protected zone"... now your talking! The Global Warming thing has little to do with protecting anything but the profits of the One World Government crew.
Keel haul the bastards I say!
Harrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
Young Californian, then I am better informed than you; I don't mean to be rude, ok, just expressing what you can confront too.
You should know better than me that US has deforested almost of its natural resources, just preserving on specific areas; correct me if I am wrong, was there a burning on the surroundings of MALIBU? you have got forest there...but why exactly there? uhn...a great number of Hollywood starts live there, so I think valuing nearby forest would maintain the price of this area high and suitable for more millionaires or billionaires investments.
Young Californian, I am not against capitalism nor those crazy environmentalists, I am a defendant of stop global warming but at a reasonable level, not taking stupid steps.
I am even planing to work at United States of America a years from now...what a big country and so many things to appreciate.
Regards.

Well then allow me to confront you. I also hope I do not sound rude, but the fact is that you completely wrong, Pidr1nhu. I do not deny that deforestation has and will continue to be a significant problem in the United States (I really don't know much regarding forestry in Europe, so I will focus on the United States). However, when I read some of the assertions you've stated as fact, I feel compelled to respond. These two statements in particular are utterly ridiculous:
USA and Europe has destroyed almost completely their forests territories...
You should know better than me that US has deforested almost of its natural resources, just preserving on specific areas...
According to the US Forest Service, in 1630 (the beginning of European settlement) there was estimated to be about 423 million hectares of forest land in the territories that would eventually become the United States. By 1997 that number had dropped to 302 million hectares, or about 70% of the amount of forest land existing in 1630. About 75% of that deforestation occurred in the 19th century. While that is a significant drop, it hardly suggests that American forests have been "destroyed almost completely".
correct me if I am wrong, was there a burning on the surroundings of MALIBU? you have got forest there...but why exactly there? uhn...a great number of Hollywood starts live there, so I think valuing nearby forest would maintain the price of this area high and suitable for more millionaires or billionaires investments.
Huh? I assume you're referring to the Malibu fire that occurred last week (there are a lot of fires in Malibu). However, I don't understand the connection you're trying to draw. Yes, Malibu is home to many wealthy people, including Hollywood celebrities. Yes, it has protected nature preserves. However, Malibu is not forested, the recent Malibu fire only burned down four mansions, and many other areas in southern California, beach and otherwise, are nature preserves even though they are not in wealthy areas. The fact is that most areas of nature which are set aside as preserves or parks are inherently pretty. That's why they're set aside. Naturally beautiful areas also tend to be popular (and thus expensive) places to live. Thus, Malibu is home to both rich people and nature preserves.
