Have you seen the movie, The Day After Tomorrow (2004)? I cannot help thinking about this movie after we watched Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth (2006) in the class?and Hurricane Sandy cutting off electricity in NYC. Glacier is melting, and the polar bears have no place to live? Seriously, this is a lot more than that. The global warming will not only raise the sea level, but also bring more powerful hurricanes/typhoons, droughts, and flood.
The scientists have found out that the global warming is due to the high concentration of CO2. The main source of CO2 is the carbon-based fuels, which we have been depending on to generate energy. So, basically, anyone using energy is partially responsible for global warming. I agree with Al Gore’s statement that the global warming is a moral issue. Our generation is enjoying all the benefits from the science, and discovered that The Day After Tomorrow will happen after our golden age. If we don’t pay for what we have enjoyed, it is a free-ride indeed.
