So, there was a point made in the aliens thread about scientists not being able to difinitively prove global warming, as they have too many theories, etc.
I was listening to the news yesterday and there was a mining bloke(now, please bear with me, I don't really pay attention to the world atm, I'm more into 2000 years ago).
Anyway, he was saying that if it wasn't for the hike on mining tax, then mining business would be even bigger, etc etc.
My thought is.. Why does it need to be? I mean, everyone's worried about global warming. They're all running around like headless chooks, desperately trying to stop it, but like.. Realistically, there's no point.
I don't mean to come off apathetic or doom and gloomish or anything, but if you look at it this way:
A) The world is currently over populated. Ridiculously over populated. Every day, the population grows, gets bigger, putting a much higher demand on our natural resources.
B) We keep mining and using the resources of the Earth. They're not infinite, and I think I read somewhere that we're going to run out of natural resources before global warming becomes the biggest issue we need to worry about.
Why isn't anyone seemingly worried about this? Hmm. Just a thought I had, that I thought might make for a good hypothetical discussion.
Please keep it nice.
