According to a report by NPR, this past Sunday, people in this country are beginning to believe that Global Warming is a fallacy, that all the studies done over the last decade are over exaggerated.  Are the melting of the poles not a proof of what’s going on? Are these people out their mind?

Humans tend to believe in Holy Books and a Savior that will come down from the heaven and  take them to an eternal life, that sounds pretty exaggerated to me. They have been waiting for more than two thousand years and nothing have happened! yet there are no scientific proof that it has happen or that it will ever happen.

Now let’s analyze these events, we are experiencing extreme temperatures due to deforestation, frequent natural disasters than a hundred years ago, water levels are raising due to melting ice in the poles, pollution in our oceans is killing marine life that means that our food chain it’s about to suffer an unprecedented change that will affect every single living organism in this planet, more species are despairing from the face of the earth due to our own fault.

According to experts, it’s unpredictable the ramifications of these events. The human race and environment has not experienced anything similar since mankind has been keeping records. There are always conspiracy theories that will follow issues like this but for sure there are very strong economical interests, such as corporation, behind this movement that could affect the necessity of keep moving toward a better and greener future for our ecosystem.

Yes, I am skeptic when it comes to religion because I can’t see it nor I cant’ feel it, but I can see and feel our environment changing and that is a fact. I don’t need a “Holy Book” to tell me that.
