Well I think it's because alot of people think it won't happen in their lifetime that things will ge that bad and they just don't care, alot were never taught to respect the environment and the world we live in, they are concerned with their own little worlds and issues like if they don't have the latest technology or how their job is going, etc, they don't see the big picture. People don't want to accept it. I see the effects, I live between Lakes Erie and Ontario in NY and we have not had snow! Buffalo, NY is known for snow and we have 1 freak October 13 storm that knocked us for a big loop for weeks, but now nothing but blue water in the unfrozen lakes, look at all the natural disasters? I think global warming is coming faster then we all think, a chunk in Northern Canada of an iceberg broke off yesterday, the icecaps are melting and for the intelligent people like us, it's scary. Ever see the movie, the Day after tomorrow? I think everyone should watch that one. The govt is too concerned on spending our tax dollars on war and other things that don't help us much plus how much they can raise their own paychecks that they don't give a hoot. It's very easy to make a difference but until people are taught respect, to care, and govt leaders realize they better take action, we are out of luck.
