Global warming has become a household term. You may believe that it is real or you may have
doubts. In both cases you will be victimized by the myth of a melting, expanding heat-breathing
monster mocking at you from inside the ozone hole in the dense smog of greenhouse gases. You
put on a mask to take a breath of oxygen and keep indoors not to be air polluted. You are
sweating because of your green principle not to switch on an air conditioner during the
heatwave. Your head is stuck with global warming horrors of Steven King's kind. We used
to talk about weather to fill in gaps in our conversations. Now, we get used to talking
about global warming. I have read the reports on global warming that leave no doubt: yes,
global warming exists; yes, global warming is accelerating; yes, temperatures rise, so you
may spend less on warm clothes; yes, it is globally inevitable. I trust all this because I
am a consumer of this information which may be truthful or may be something

Global warming may not be real. It is the product of research institutions that are interested
in huge investments. What is called global warming is, in fact, our inability to listen to
the nature that negatively responds to our careless intrusion and exploitation. Have you
ever connected snow in Africa, like last summer's exotic experience, with global warming? It
is not known how much of global warming is produced by industrial practices and how much of
it is natural.
They say it is cost-effective to fight against global warming now, within a framework of a
cap-and-trade system, pioneering a new carbon economy, in order to reduce heat-trapping
emissions. Their voices in the wilderness frighten us with the predictions of
Cassandra's type: the retreat of glaciers is dramatic, and the homes of up to
88 million people may have been flooded by the 2080s. It may be so, but we are
adapting to cool summers and warmer winters, as well as we are adapting to
technological advances. When one problem becomes of general concern, something
else is missing. What about wastes, environmentally abusive profiteering, current
global economic and financial crises? Isn't "global warming" our inability to unite
our efforts, to learn how to live globally in peace with our own selves and our
natural surroundings? What happened to our dichotomous thinking that celebrates
the extremes, all these "either Е or", instead of arriving at one global strategy,
They say that global warming is caused by higher concentration of water vapor
in the atmosphere. Today's CO2 levels are 25 percent more than over the past
650, 000 years. So CO2 emissions must be reduced. But we used to have periods of
higher average temperatures. Besides, these emissions nay stimulate crop growth.
What is more, it is reported that the Arctic is warming 2 or 3 times faster than
other ecosystems. The ice in Greenland is disappearing. But another trend, expanding
glaciers in Norway, Iceland, and New Zealand are simply underestimated.
I have to live with the concept of global warming, which is thrust on me. I consider
buying a new set of clothes, for I am not sure whether the coming summer would not
surprise me with unusually cool mornings. I am changing together with my thoughts
adapting to our global inability to change without declaring. Are we not living in
the time of change?
Conclusion: I do not think in terms whether global warming is real or unreal. I am
living in realities of today, dreaming of safety and cooperation with nature that
would survive and adapt, while myself may lose the game.
