  4. I was going to buy the Earth a ‘Happy Earth Day’ Card, but After I cut the tree down, mulched it up into pulp, bleached it with chemicals and turned the pulp into paper, slapped a heap of inks over it to make a funny picture … I suddenly remembered I’d left my pen at home, so couldn’t sign it! Talk about bad luck!!! 🙂

    Hehe.. It’s the thought that counts, Dabs. 😛

    Thanks for your dropping by, too. As I commented on your blog, I like the way you write your thoughts – they really come from your heart.

    Yes, let us strive to make our Earth more beautiful. 🙂

    The Earth will be perfectly OK regardless what temp. it is at or how much ice there is. All YOU are concerned with is your own personal little habitats. Your worried that you may be personally inconvenienced, this is selfishness at its worst.
    Who cares whether it is natural or man made… either way the earth is changing.
    Those who live to blame this on man do so cause if they are right, in their tiny frightened minds it means they can fix it…. This is the same arrogance that got us to where we are today.

    You decided to play(too much) and now you realized there are reactions to you actions. Just sit back and enjoy yourselves it appears that’s all people are good for anyway.
    Know in your hearts that the Earth will be here long after we are gone and life (maybe no humans) will flourish as it always has.

    whoah…tyler’s not a happy little camper eh? 😛 anyway, his words are indeed worth a ponder or 2. in anycase, we must do what we can, WHILE we can, no?

    Every opinion is worth a ponder.
    It’s up to us to decide if they are applicable.
    Thanks, Yvy.


  9. Tyler – ‘All YOU are concerned with is your own personal little habitats. Your worried that you may be personally inconvenienced, this is selfishness at its worst.’

    No, you’re wrong. As someone who has had cancer on his Aorta since 2000, I’m certainly NOT worried about MY OWN PERSONAL HABITAT, nor being PERSONALLY INCONVENIENCED.
    [Captials for effect – not yelling].

    I’ve died and been brought back before in hospital. BUT, I am concerned for the fate of the human race.
    It seems an awful lot of RICH people keep telling us Global Warming isn’t happening [and lets face it, the petrolium companies are part of that as was recently revealed].

    Being concerned over WHAT HAPPENS to the rest of humanity after we’re gone [which is REALLY what it’s about, as we’ll be long gone before the Human race starts to die off because of this], is actually HUMANITY at it’s BEST. We’re not concerned for ourselves, so DON’T YOU DARE call it selfishness. The reason for saving the planet is for all who follow us, not for us. And the ‘doing the right thing’ to save it means sacrifices on our part.

    How can you honestly call it SELFISHNESS AT IT’S WORST when we’re the ones who are willing to sacrifice in order to make the world BETTER for their sakes?

    ‘Those who live to blame this on man do so cause if they are right, in their tiny frightened minds it means they can fix it…. This is the same arrogance that got us to where we are today.’

    NO, Sticking your head up your butt and telling us we’re being selfish for trying to do something is the same arrogance that got us to where we are today.

    Are we frightened? I’m not. Do we have small minds? Not at all. In fact some of the most BRILLIANT minds on the planet are trying to get people to DO SOMETHING about it. If most of the experts still think it can be fixed [and some of them think it’s too late, but think it’s still worth a try], then I will err on the side of at least giving it my best attempt before falling into the sorriful heap you would want us to fall into. You’re a defeatist and that is humanity at its worst.

    ‘You decided to play(too much) and now you realized there are reactions to you actions. Just sit back and enjoy yourselves it appears that’s all people are good for anyway.’

    Sorry, you’re blaming us? The people who are trying to do things? Why don’t you go give this message to the politicians who WON’T sign the Kyoto protocol or the petrolium companies who spend billions each year trying to get people to use MORE of their products? Or tell it to the people who won’t take a small amount of time to recycle their paper or plastic or cans. Little bits do help.

    As for the Earth being here after we’re gone – yes, the planet will PHYSICALLY be here, [provided those in power don’t blow it to pieces], but as Athens discovered in the Persian wars, the City is the people NOT the PHYSICAL BUILDINGS, and in our case, the Earth is the people. Without us, it’s just another nameless rock floating through space. Intelligence is a gift, and to suggest we stick our heads up our butts and let it go is stupid, arrogant and selfish. You tell us off for ‘Playing too long’ and now your suggesting we just continuing playing? YOU HYPOCRITE!

    As for life being here after we’re gone … well, no, if the scientists are right, the planet might end up like Venus, too hot for life to exist at all. So, there will be no life flourishing at all, and selfish people like yourself who call those trying to do something ‘selfish and arrogant’ will be the casue of life disappearing. And as this si the ONLY place in the Univese that we know of at present that has life, it might be the loss of life forever.

    Are we really concerned with our OWN personal habitat, or the habitat of everyone on the planet? After all, the rich can move to higher ground when the ice caps melt, they can move to coole places or even underground. But, the poor of te world, the ones WITHOUT internet access will once again be the ones to bear the brunt of any disaster.

    The fact that your solution is to stick your head up your butt and tell us to do the same proves how selfish you are. After all, you’re one of the rich. You can move, you will probably be looked after in some way or form. So, don’t come here calling people names expecting them to stick their heads up their butts just because you have. The finger you’ve pointed has a hand with four fingers pointing straight back at you.

    But I guess selfish people like you don’t care, because after all, when the life on this planet has been extinguished there’ll be no one left to point the finger at those who suggested we keep playing whilst the Earth burned!
