Well, it's confusing enough to hear the hubbub from both directions. On the one hand you've got research scientists and geologists saying it's a real thing and we should definitely be taking steps. Many of them say it's too late to stop it, but at least we could slow it down. Then for every one of those there's another scientist or politician, or even spiritual leader, telling us we shouldn't worry about it and there's no need to change anything.

In Kermit's words, "It ain't easy being green!" We want everything fast and easy, like our TV's, cars, microwaves, smart phones, and tablets. This millenium has been all about making things more convenient by making things faster and more technological. We want fast food, a kajillion cell towers, quick stop lights, and no buffering.
