Yes. Sad isn't it? Which is why it's annoying when people start ranting and raving about "Saving the Earth", when all they actually mean is "Save the Humans". And humans also coin all sorts of terms like ethics and morals which dictate we shouldn't be selfish, etc.
Sounds less egotistical that way. And environmentalists are nothing if no egotistical. So they are very sensitive to that kind of subtlety.
Yet everybody seems to agree. We have global warming and Holland will dissapear under water. That would be bad. I'm living there, in convidence that this will not happen.
There is a thread in another forum on ice ages. Seems we're overdue for one. Maybe we are HELPING stabilize the global climate? ;)
