    short of making radical changes to reverse some of the poisoning we are doing to the planet, there are permanent changes going on that will impact future generations.

    Global climate change via warming, which has clearly already begun to wreak havoc on normal weather patterns is perhaps the least of our environmental troubles. We can hope to mitigate the worst of it's effects - frankly, I think it will take perhaps 10 years of severe disruptions in the normal weather patterns, or even longer for the f**** politicians to finally figure that out.

    There is going to be lots of sick {changes in the environment will shift patterns of mold, viruses and other illnesses} and dead people. People will lose their homes permanently, by the tens of millions, perhaps hundreds of millions as a response to these changes.

    But the bigger threat is that Mankind has been poisoning the air and water of the planet with substances that are causing massive species extinction. This is not new to the Bush Administration, this has been happening for over one hundred years. Once polluted, it is very expensive to reclaim places taken past the tipping point - and the species that are lost, are lost forever, further upsetting the balance of nature.

    Of course, the continued denial by Corp Bush of the impact of chemical wastes being spewed into aquifers, lakes, streams, landfills, the air and the oceans and continued support of industrial interests over that of nature itself isn't helping any.

    What troubles me is the relative silence of most policians - one of the brightest exceptions to that is Al Gore.

      We cannot wait for Joe SixPack to understand Global much as he and his friends may understand environmental impact, they can't quite grasp the idea of global warming.
