    Apr 26 2011: Agree it's a natural step, but we have speeded up the process by creating ecological mess for our short-term gain that's the concern.
  • Apr 22 2011: I agree with Davie.
    Also I just wanted to add whether it was or wasn't caused by humans, and at this point in time where we can all truly see just how small the earth is why not see just how much we CAN control nature? I mean why not, I know it's complicated but so is QED.

    However, for the first time in the history of the planet, an inhabitants (humans) actions can and will result in a change in its climate.

    Please watch Al gore's 'an inconvenient truth'. It answers your question in full i feel.
