    In a way, Al Gore responds to that in his film, An Inconvenient Truth. A documentary about global warming that's received favorable reviews from top scientists.

    If Gore's movie bores you (hey it rhymes!), you can always opt for the "Hollywoodized" The Day After Tomorrow.

      Because sometimes it's cheaper to just find another fixer-upper in better condition instead of trying to replace termite ridden joists. Since if during the Earth overhaul something goes desperately wrong where would we evacuate to? On another planet we just say, "Oh well" and find another planet to muck up.
      Life is what you make of it...so please read the instructions carefully.

        Lucky for us, evolution is running just a tick faster than extinction. But try to convince a dogmatic pessimist of that fact.

        We are due for another one with all the plastics and non biogegradables piling up. The anaerobes will again take over the earth.
