What's to beleive? Ice caps have come and gone forever. The question isn't evan what's causing it. Is there anything people can do to slow it? Not likely when politics belongs to money. I like this idea, (every man for themself) or was that what Custer said.

This is true. We've been through many phases, and we may be ushering things long, but I don't feel humanity is solely to blame. We're just not helping.

The dust bowl of the thirties shows that man can cause problems and solve them.

That's true, but that was also happening on a local level.
