Check out this interesting article written by Healing Green.
Curiouser and curiouser.
I've found myself going back and forth on the 'Humans are Causing Global Warming' issue for the past few years. On one hand, there is no denying (though I've heard people try) that humans have been pumping really nasty stuff into the atmosphere and adversely affecting the earth at an alarming rate for the past fifty years. On the other hand, there is no denying (though I've heard people try) that the earth goes through hot and cold cycles and that we could just be going through another warm cycle now but are right on the cusp of another cold cycle.
I'm disgusted with how we (general we) are treating our home, and I have no doubt that we're doing serious harm to the earth and to our future here, but I think it shows how out of touch with the earth itself we are that we discount natural cycles and egotistically blame it all on ourselves. Seeing an article like this one on a 'green' blog felt like a breath of fresh air - no extreme panic-stricken (usually from the 'green' side) or disdainful (usually from the 'anti-green' side) views.
In any case, it's an interesting read.
