Quotes for Earth Day - Wednesday

"Two thousand scientists, in a hundred countries, engaged in the most elaborate, well organized scientific collaboration in the history of humankind, have produced long-since a consensus that we will face a string of terrible catastrophes unless we act to prepare ourselves and deal with the underlying causes of global warming." ~ Al Gore

"The various processes that lead to the end of nature have been essentially beyond human thought. Only a few people knew that carbon dioxide would warm up the world, for instance, and they were for a long time unsuccessful in their efforts to alert the rest of us. Now it is too late - not too late ... to ameliorate some of the changes and so perhaps to avoid the most gruesome of their consequences. But the scientists agree that we have already pumped enough gas into the air so that a significant rise in temperature and a subsequent shift in weather are inevitable." ~ Bill McKibben, The End of Nature

Are these the same scientists who collaborated to falsify "man-caused" global warming data a couple of years ago? I have no doubt that global warming is occurring but it's occurred before too, before man. Where were all of these man caused 'root causes' when man wasn't around?

I wonder what would be the result of two thousand scientists coming together. I mean there could be a lot of "let us agree to disagree" kind of situations.......

No matter what we do, the Earth will be fine. It should be: "Save the Humans from Making The Environment Unsuitable for Life As We Know It" rather than "Save the Earth". Earth spent millions (maybe billions) of years as a terrible place to be and could do so again without shedding a tear.
