Global Warming (The Silent Ticking Time Bomb)

The biggest issue confronting the safety and continued existence of our planet as we know it today, is the escalating danger of global warming. Even world leaders are now locked in continuous conferences and brainstormings to find solutions to arrest this impending global catastrophe. It is the result of man's insatiable greed for wealth, comfort of living and the rapacious and over exploitation of the world's natural resources. The once wide ranging and verdant rain forests that have served as Earth's natural filter and converter of noxious and poisonous gas emissions have dwindled to alarming proportions due to the so called march to progress and development initiated by greedy individuals, corporations and even nations.

The intransigent refusal of many companies and nations to totally ban products that emit harmful greenhouse gas emissions to the air have punched a sizeable hole in the earth's ozone layer. This resulted in the exposure of large areas of our planet to the harmful effects of ultra violet rays and other deadly radiations from the sun.

Thus we are now witnessing the modern phenomena known as global warming. The results of this calamitous occurrence is the rapid melting of the polar snow caps that have raised the sea levels of the world and have threatened to inundate or blot out of existence islands and nations that lie below sea levels; the sudden changes of the world climate, bringing in stronger typhoons, hurricanes and cyclones; massive earthquakes and tidal waves (or tsunamis); and extreme hot and cold temperatures in different parts of the world. This resulted in terrible loss of lives and the destruction of properties, infrastructures and crops.

Is there no more hope for our world? Would our existence as a planet be extinguished as a result of man's inhumanity to his fellow humans and his unbridled
greed for material prosperity, progress and power?

Surely, there is still hope if we all work together as one. Let us disregard our differences as nations and peoples, and work hand in hand to rebuild and save this wonderful planet. And let us all pray together as one, that the Supreme Creator (irregardless of whatever religion or beliefs you profess) bless us with one more chance to redeem ourselves and our planet. Please don't give up on us.

I totally agree with you on global warming. It is a serious issue that the world must work together on to resolve.

It is tough for me because my own President Mr. Bush rejects that global warming is even happening!

I hope he either realizes global warming is taking place soon, or we get someone in office who does so we can keep this planet of our habitable.

Hi Octavian,
Thanks for your usual visit and your very intelligent comments. It's a pity that the President of the most powerful nation on earth should turn a blind eye and a deaf ear to the reality of global warming. It's just one of the many misjudgments on his part that makes him a lameduck President. His own partymates at the Republican Party was shunning him like a dead weight. We just hope your next President would be more rational and view this ongoing global problem with more circumspect. Thanks again. Smile. God bless you and have a nice and pleasant day.


Global warming controversy take new picture when a writer say that temperature increase is actually a good thing as in the past sudden cool periods have killed twice as many people as warm spells. He accepted global warming issues is big but he said not our fault.

I do agree that we now are facing serious problem on global warming... this is the worldwide problems and I really think if every country participates in tackling the issue starting from own country, at least the contributing factors can be reduced....

Thanks for the generous comments. Smile and have a nice and beautiful day.
