I believe very sincerely that global warming is tremendously overhyped
and is distracting us from much more serious and immediate concerns.
Acid rain is a growing problem principally in areas that still burn a
lot of coal without modern safeguards. Think China. But all of that
pales in comparison by at least an order of magnitude if not two
compared to real energy shortage and the coming wars (already warming
up) over same and the growing economic meltdown. If you want mundane
immediate issues these swamp the rest.
