Global Cooling, Ozone Crisis, Global Warming

Less facebook, more real books ;)

From Ozone Crisis to Global Warming

I always believe that Earth (and the cosmos in general) has its cycle. Like there is day and night… winter, spring, summer and fall… we have our own month and year, while the Mayans and the Aztecs have their own calendar.

I am stating this to explain why we have ice age and global warming. Not that I believe that we are ‘doomed’ from the beginning nor seek complacency in caring for the environment, I just wish to be reasonable on waiving certain rights and giving-in to the demands of the government in guise of ‘protecting the planet’.

I remember as a child reading scientific articles that the Earth is experiencing global cooling, and that we are heading to ice age. Then the predictions shifted to global warming. We were even required to read “Ozone Crisis” (during my university years) complete with data and statistics and apocalyptic warnings about the critical depletion of the ozone layer that will result in rampant skin cancer and accelerated destruction of the ecosystem, among others.

Fast forward today, nobody talks about the ozone layer anymore or its sidekick the ultra violet rays. Rather It has been proven that the crisis being painted is simply exaggerated. The 1987’s Montreal Protocol about the ‘ozone crisis’ has evolved into 1997’s Kyoto Protocol of ‘planetary emergency of global warming’.

Repeat: Not that I believe that we are ‘doomed’ from the beginning nor seek complacency in caring for the environment, I just wish to be reasonable on waiving certain rights and giving-in to the demands of the government in guise of ‘protecting the planet’.
