Think that article is scary? - what about this:-
http://www.atimes.com/atimes/Front_Page/GB25Aa01.html
I agree the writer is somewhat emotive - yet - how long will it take before the whole world recognises this threat to our continuing existence. EVERY other problem currently making the headlines will become a non issue by comparison. Is our planet's survival at stake or are we being totally mis-lead? Is this Armageddon that is looming (-as repeatedly rammed down our throats by religious zealots)? [:(]
Not to pick at sources but how unbiased can a "a weighty international task force organized by policy activists" be? Did they include any scientists or just policy activists. And then they go on to quote the "godfather of Greenpeace's climate campaign." While there may be salient points to the article, it does seem awfully one sided.

I guess after 20 years of hearing them cry wolf, I'm no longer listening.

Yeah I agree - Greenpeace bah!. Oops, forgot that darn Ozone thing again - doesn't affect you north american guys yet does it, and as I posted earlier, you don't have high UV warnings as part of your regular reporting either. Think I'll have another beer - great suggestion by an earlier poster. Whaddya reckon the answer will be - Bush for next Pope?
