Is it a good thing? ... a bad thing? ... something inevitable perhaps?

and its significance when it comes to the question of climate change?

I have to admit; I've heard the term but have never looked into this and have no preconceived opinions. I'm not even sure what it means so I'll probably be easily impressed!

Also, please indicate your position on man-made global warming; I'd like to know if proponents and skeptics view globalisation differently. I'll keep that in mind when choosing best answer.

Thanks in anticipation ...
