dont want to sound controversial, but the planet goes through extreme changes in climate all the time (in terms of the fact that human existence is just a blip on the planets timeline), we are already overdue for the next ice age, we should just adapt like all the rest of the creatures before us....
oh and stop polluting.

barrie, for that you deserve to die from the vicious bird flu that all the scientists predicted would sweep the planet last year. oh wait....

actually that was a bit of a joke, i do believe in global warming. can't wait till we become the dubai of green energy(aka shitty weather).

yeh, i think i may have caught SARS, im gonna stay home for a couple of days. Epidemics are usually blown way out of proportion by the media.
of course, some are quite dangerous, and we need to cull a few thousand animals, but we do it to protect ourselves.
SARS killed a whopping 774 people (please, do not be offended if someone you knew/loved died from it)!
pbish! come back to me when someone gets the plague, then i will start to worry.
granted, SARS was projected to be another plague like catastrophe so the media stuck to it like it was heralding the end of humanity (and hey, who wouldnt want to report on the end of the world, its a big story < insert something about Global Warming here >).
all im saying is, shit happens and we have to deal with it. other shit that we caused is also important, but dont report (or make fictitious reports) on it so much that saturates the media and i just sick of hearing about it (< insert the recent headlines about cocaine plague in ireland >). Cocaine has always been a porblem in ireland (and a lot of other counrties) should it have to take a "celebrity's" death to make us take action about it?
