      This is amazing! I actually believe that global warming is real and a problem to be tackled with urgency, but this information is no less relevant for that matter... Voted yours up anyway, who knows one of it will come up.
  • The thing about global warming is that it turn our collective attention away from real bad problem like estrogen like pollution. fish in river are getting feminized and yet almost nobody talk about it. Cancer rate are alarmingly high but we talk about the harmless CO2. If the relative threat of CO2 and global watrming is put into perspective maybe we could address the bio-accumulating halogen(F,I,Br,Cl to a lesser extend)-organic compound problem.
