Most of the people I work with/ studied with were little greenies long before high school.

    My son is currently worried about people dying so I imagine we will be crossing this bridge in a few years

    I still don't think you get it (maybe you do and I just have a really sensitive child). Primary school age kids learn a lot about the health of our planet - far beyond what I knew as a child. I had access to encycolpedias that were usually out of date. And a show called behind the news. And that was about it. These days the environment message underlines almost everything they do. That's great, it's wonderful.

    She's in girl guides and they do lots of environmental stuff there. She recycles everything she can. She collects garbage everywhere we go (and I mean everywhere).

    But as a child it's hard for her to see how small changes can make a big difference when the message is still climate change and global warming, and animals on the verge of extinction.

    It's great she's so aware, and we're obviously proud of her. I just wish she didn't have to worry.

    I find it really weird that you're so adamant about not divulging your situation. Until then I shall assume you mop decks on a navy ship and are friends with the channel 7 weather guy. All this thread has done is educate me further in the belief of climate change and global warming and its repercussions. As I think it has most who have followed along. Maybe that was your goal this whole time! To pretend you lack common sense in order to educate the masses! Bravo! Let's call it a night, mission accomplished!

    It must be some amazing research.
    Well actually, yes. Unpublished data is simply that. If you do some real research, read some scientific journals published in this country you'd be surprised at what you'll find.

    I can make a general statement about what I have seen, yes. Its called a professional opinion. I were to mention a species, which can then be related to specific project of a client. Yes, I could be sued and lose my job.

    There is nothing wrong with mopping decks.
    I agree with the calling it a night thing. It was good to have you return from your premature departure. It's been a pleasure.
    Goodnight.

    Never said there was something wrong with it, just said I'll assume that's what you do for a living.
