I suppose what humans want to do with what they have, or *think* they
have, discovered, through their scientific methods (whether
rigourously, consciensiously or effectively applied/interpreted/
communicated or not) is up to them.
Of course there are other issues of concern, beyond just global
warming, that are ostensibly related to human activity, and might do
well to be part of the debate on human activity, which they often are.
Frankly, I may be more inclined to give more, say, interpretive
weight, to the validity of what a scientist in the subject-in-
question's field and lab might tell me, over what an ostensible
developer (yikes! ;) on alt.arch (or his quoted journalist) might. :)
I just seems to make sense, especially if one wants to survive, or at
least live comfortably, to "scale, proportion and/or choreograph,
etc." one's lifestyle to one which may be more in keeping with the
apparent constraints/scale/style of one's own home. It's no good if
you're parking your car in the bedroom, or the toilet is the sink in
The dinosaurs didn't survive, and while humans are small in
comparison, their activity is far bigger, and their meterorite may be
of their own making.
Here's an (appropriately) unfinished poem, entitled "Stepping Stones",
that I began back in 1991:
Stepping on them now.
The stones in our
Crossing of a shallow, fast-moving river.
With many a careless step, some
Fragile stones are crushed beneath
Fossils to study at a later date
Lessons of failure
Their descendants might have had
Our abused privileges
The river grows wider, the stones fewer and far between
As our worried feet get wetter
Will we create our own stepping stones?
Or fall in, to join the thunder-lizards of our making?
Or become the stones, themselves
Stepped upon by our own mistakes
