This from a story by Jenny Barchfield on the Associated Press:

"RIO DE JANEIRO The earth's environmental systems "are being pushed towards their biophysical limits," beyond which loom sudden, irreversible and potentially catastrophic changes, the United Nations Environment Program warned Wednesday.

In a 525-page report on the health of the planet, the agency paints a grim picture: The melting of the polar ice caps, desertification in Africa, deforestation of tropical jungles, spiraling use of chemicals and the emptying out of the world's seas are just some of myriad environmental catastrophes posing a threat to life as we know it."

I use to think this wouldn't happen in my lifetime... now I believe it will. It's sad that we've fu-ked our own planet.

It is not an "it will happen" situation. It t is happening now.

The facts are well established and the science is sound. The way things are going now, the world will be looking at an environmental situation like the one portrayed in the movie "Soylent Green" by 2060 or so. That sounds a long way off, but it really is not. A child born today will be only 48 years old then. And they will look back and blame us for ruining their world.
