Wednesday night I watched Horizon going on about global dimming. It was really interesting - so not only do we have global warming but the actual warming of the earth is happening as may have been predicted because of global dimming. In fact things are worse as the global dimming era is not as bad as it used to be due to the clean up of pollutants from car power stations and manufacturing. It would appear now however that this global dimming due to our pollution was in fact protecting the earth from global warming by reflecting the sun energy. Anyway the earth is going to get a lot hotter a lot quicker and by 2025 it is predicted that the Green Ice Sheet will start to melt. When it starts it won't stop and generally that will be the beginning of the end of the world as we know it. With that kind of prediction there is hardly anypoint worrying about running out of oil or how fast we burn it. So we better make best use of it while we can - because once the world gets to hot there's no doubt the world will instantly then freeze and there won't be enough oil to go around. For the rest of us at this point it might be wiser to move to Scoltand as England will be a flooded mass and any land will be dessert! Great eh.
Its been worked out that this global dimming caused by the 'Western' pollution was in fact the cause of the famine in places such as Ethiopa back in the eighties. ironic really that the people who caused the rains to stop falling ended up trying to feed them but not realizing it was all our fault in the first place :(
