Overread: It would still have the same effect: The poor ones die, more energy for the rich ones. And it was only writing off my frustration about the ignorance or uninformed-ness of many people. Being sacrastic, etc. Kartaron: Well I guess I'm typical European, but I wanna add, that I spent a year or more in the US and I can say that not all stereotypal ideas Europeans have about Americans are wrong. 1) I never said it's German atmosphere. What I was trying to say is that I do experience the results of Global warming, so I don't trust people who say that it doesn't exist and that nothing changed/will change. So why can't I go skiing anymore? Are you talking about the butterfly effect? Because then we would have the same oppinion. The US pollutes the environment way more than European countries do and still, the people in the Arctic felt it first, then others, the Europeans also feel it and Americans don't. It's the butterfly effect: "The butterfly effect, theorises that a change in something seemingly innocuous, such as a flap of a butterfly's wings, may cause unexpected larger changes in another place in the future, such as a tornado." Little things like driving a car can make the polecaps melt, you know what I mean? 2) we both should do research upon that. 3) Politicians who are denieing a problem only increase it, they're far less helping than the politicians you talk about. 4) Of course there is the possibility, that global warming is actually not happening/ really normal. There's also the possibility of us being part of a machine generated matrix. Can you prove the opposite? No- how could you. It simply depends on how you interprete the facts and which facts you decide to see as relevant and which ones you don't. And the question really is- as someone earlier in this thread stated-: "Are we willing to take the risk?"
