I actually fell asleep while watching a lecture on global climate change

The thing is, I am very enthusiastic as to the possibilities of reducing global climate and it looks as if Climate Expert Jim Hansen indicated that the younger generation is facing the most challenging time of their age group.

The charts and graphs he used in his lecture were effective as I continued to listen and pay attention but at past the middle point of his well thought out conclusions about the impact emissions are having on the planet, I simply dosed off.

If you find this subject worth the effort you can watch this video from YouTube at the following URL: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y09kyx9YgUM

As for myself, it's about time for bed. I have to wait until tomorrow to finish it.

It's certainly an interesting topic. It's a topic that warms our hearts (sorry). But I strongly doubt Man can reverse global warming. I think he might be able to slow it a mite, but then I don't honestly believe that will happen either. I think the methods of living are too deeply ingrained in the structure of Society to reverse the process on his own.

There are a few who are focused on Climate Engineering but it seems a bit too late for it. I used to think that organization called HAARP in Alaska was already fooling around with the weather but it may have been only a hoax. Here is a link on the subject via Wikipedia :

If you are tired, then sitting still and watching something, no matter how interesting, is likely to send you to sleep. I certainly find that myself!

Yes, but tonight I will not be watching the 2 to 3 hour finale of Dancing With The Stars. I would rather play solitaire.
