Global Warming

There is some robust debate on the subject of global warming. Is the world actually warming? Is man made CO2 to blame if the world is warming? Is global warming just another Y2K beat up? There is some compelling evidence to suggest that it is.

Whatever the arguments may be regarding global warming they are actually almost totally irrelevant. The issue that is probably driving all of this is fossil fuels. The whole of the developed and industrialised world is utterly reliant on fossil fuel particularly crude oil and natural gas. There is only a finite amount in existence and the world is consuming it at a prodigious rate. There are as yet no other viable alternatives to crude oil and fossil fuels and anything that slows the rate of consumption of these irreplaceable commodities is not a matter of social conscience, it’s an absolute necessity.
