I have returned to this community, and over the last two years and at the completion of my adolescence, I have learned.....

At the age of eighteen, I was just rooting in to my spiritual self, and that of those surrounding. I have learned much, and I have learned this.
That it will never be us who change the world. It will always be the world that changes us.
Generally speaking, of course. I speak of mankind as a whole, as, is obvious from spending any time at all on this very site among others, there are quite a number of exceptions.
But think about it. Nothing has been done about global warming. Hybrid cars? Great, but it doesn't solve the cars that are already there, it doesn't solve the traffic, and it doesn't solve the many forms of grid power.
Legalized personal powering via solar power etc. Great! But once again, the grid.
Recycling. Great! That we don't recycle everything we go through, and that inadequate waste is biodegradeable. not so great.
And then we have this: The Kyoto Accord. Not everyone follows it, you know. It's a fact that China doesn't. And they're the most populated country in the world, so think about the amount of oil they go through! The rest of the world can stop polluting right now, and China would still get us all killed...nevermind the damage we'll have done twenty years from now as is, from the pollutants we've already consumed.
More and more, there are talks of the gravitude of the situation. Al Gore is one of many who believe in changing our ways. Bono of U2, another. I, myself, contribute how I can, as I'm sure many of us here do.
Unfortunately, most people would rather ride it while it lasts, and worry about the price later, and hope the ticketmaster forgets to charge them.
But he won't. Didn't last time. I mean, what do you think the Plague was about?
If you're a scientist before a spiritualist, then you know that as the planet heats up, diseases are going to exponentially multiply beyond our control. It will pick and choose who lives and dies, until the planet cools down, or until the immune are all that's left, whichever comes first.
And nevermind the Plague. There's also energy crisis. If we don't slow down our consumption rate, or at least find an alternative source of energy (the Moon, for example), soon? Then we'll have a bloody war *and* a plague. The war will be for resources and for vaccines, likely, since the "richer" nations have more access to medicine. The rest of the world will have to go by herbalism, the many less-known forms of healing, or by faith alone in a deity or in our survival.
Will we live or die? Both, as always. But see? How the world changes us? if the planet wasn't heating up, would we have slowed down gas consumption at all before gassing ourselves out?
Not likely.
Earth itself isn't suffering, trust me. It didn't take long to patch itself up 65 million ears ago, a few relative minutes of the Earth's lengthy life. If we end up incinerating everything on the planet including ourselves? It'll just sort itself out and keep on going without us, some other being will come to sentience and pick up where we left off, and maybe get it right next time.
The world is giving us warnings, though, not because it's suffering, but because we will. If a massive hurricane ripping through a city, and an icecap rapidly vanishing, isn't a sign enough, then we're just too blind and clingy to tradition to heed the warning, and will suffer the fullest penalties of the monstrosity we have created for ourselves. But that's our own fault.
If the world ices over? We'll change. If the world is torched to cinders, we'll change. If the magnetic field of the planet shut down, we'll change.
If the world keeps on doing what it's kept on doing, so will we.
So who's gonna make the first move? The mother or its children? Because something's got to give, and I give it...hmm...5 years. Isn't that what the Mayans predicted, anyway?

On a lighter note, I'm glad to be back to this community. I have gotten back in touch with things, and have becomre more, founded on enough opinions that I could actually share them and say years later that that's stil what I think, until the day comes I am shown otherwise.
Cheers

what makes you think that the Earth is the only planet heating up at this very moment? When clearly the entier solar system is warming, even our Sun is warming. There is far mre to the situation than just mans follies, rocks fall from space whether man is here or not, and Suns explode daily, or get eaten by black holes.
Nice to see you back in town. :}

Indian Prime Minister Modi [link] on the [link] 10th to take advantage of the occasion [link] of his first visit [link] to France's prime [link] minister [link] identity, announced the purchase [link] of [link] 36 [link] "Rafale" [link] fighter. He also told [link] French President Hollande require "spot" because "the Indian Air Force in urgent need of these fighters."French media just T account, "Rafale" fighter [link] plane is [link] not equipped with [link] weapons [link] and the export [link] price [link] of about 110 million euros. The total [link] amount of these 36 "Rafale" fighter of about 40 billion euros. In fact, since [link] 2012 the Indian government began to seek in "wind" and not, which was the [link] initial target [link] 126. So, what beauty fighter "Rafale" Let India so persistent? Indian Air Force [link] is currently in the end how the configuration of each aircraft and combat? Listen Xinhua International for [link] you to decode.Flying "Swiss Army Knife"Xinhua News Agency World Studies Center [link] researcher Shen Xiao [link] Quan, the "gust" is the French Dassault company since the [link] 1980s began to develop a "multi-purpose combat [link] aircraft," the model set air defense, aerial reconnaissance, [link] ground and [link] air-to-sea precision strike [link] and nuclear [link] capabilities equal to one of the most advanced combat aircraft, not just [link] a machine, but you can [link] implement [link] a [link] variety [link] of functions in a [link] single flight. Due to its multi-function and [link] is aptly called "flight of Swiss [link] Army knife."May [link] 1991, "gust" first flight in [link] 2004 has started in 2006 [link] the [link] French Navy and the Air Force. "Gust" is the French army in the [link] next 30 years, the [link] main [link] model. "Gust" Although formal military service in France for many [link] years, but [link] its [link] high price [link] and [link] its performance has not been battle-tested reliability [link] and [link] makes foreign customers prohibitive.In recent [link] years, "gust" by a shooting combat "kill" the reputation, including Libya, [link] Mali and [link] Iraq.Shen Xiao Quan said, [link] in air strikes in Libya operation, "gust" is the main French air strikes [link] from the French mainland base off to Libya over [link] the implementation of air strikes tasks, [link] thanks to air refueling fuel, making the whole operation lasted [link] 9 hours 35 minutes It is difficult [link] to match the other models; in Mali [link] battlefield, [link] "gust" in sub-Saharan Africa, [link] the [link] hot [link] engine has withstood the test of high temperature mechanical properties of intact; "Rafale" fighter in Iraq, intelligence gathering [link] and aerial [link] bombing have not [link] fixed vulgar [link] performance. Currently on the "Islamic State" (IS) [link] militants raid also considered by the "gust" lead.The combat has been successfully [link] demonstrated in the [link] "gust" widely [link] recognized potential customers, [link] but [link] also for the international market [link] provides an opportunity. In [link] February, [link] the urgent [link] need to improve their level of armaments lead Egypt ordered 24 "Rafale", [link] became the first foreign [link] customer. "Gust" [link] 10 years later finally enabled to foreign markets.In [link] this way, the vertical takeoff and landing aircraft on [link] the deck of the [link] battleship [link] took root. Because he [link] was [link] about to reduce the [link] aircraft's technical requirements (there is no requirement, as long [link] as there [link] is a flat deck to become), [link] in the [link] next [link] 20 years, although [link] the Harrier / AV-8B series performance far [link] less than conventional aircraft, basically only [link] be used as attack aircraft, The aircraft is [link] still [link] in [link] many [link] countries, spread to become [link] the [link] core of [link] these small countries carrier aircraft80 years later, with the further development of [link] aviation technology, US and [link] the USSR began to further enhance the efforts of [link] VTOL aircraft performance, [link] but a flawed VTOL aircraft can not be avoided: In order to achieve [link] vertical takeoff and landing, [link] the [link] plane is [link] inevitable to want to install some special [link] equipment and structures, these devices is essential [link] in the landing phase, in normal [link] flight, but is totally unnecessary, such "dead weight" [link] doomed [link] VTOL aircraft in [link] performance is bound to be inferior to the ordinary [link] fighters.Before the disintegration of the Soviet [link] Union made the Yak-141, although more [link] than [link] the speed of sound [link] is also equipped [link] with [link] radar and a set of combat equipment, but [link] its air combat capability is in [link] last place in three generations of [link] fighters; the United [link] States took 10 years to develop the [link] F-35B, although the current implementation [link] other countries in the suppression of three generations of [link] fighter combat performance overall performance index, [link] but this capability is dependent on [link] the [link] US overall leader [link] in technology acquired in the three F-35, F-35B's combat capability [link] is [link] still the weakest, while Fourth-generation technology using aircraft, such as the [link] J-20 or T-50, F-35B on the air war are [link] still advantages.Although the message [link] is not yet clear, [link] but Chinese-made VTOL [link] aircraft will no doubt [link] follow the [link] above rules, [link] taking into account the huge gap between China and the United States in the field of [link] engine, [link] even [link] China in 5-10 years, relying on existing [link] domestic [link] technology successfully developed [link] a [link] VTOL aircraft engines, its performance exceeds the F-35B is difficult [link] to use the [link] F-135PW-600 engines. [link] As a [link] result, domestic VTOL aircraft performance "above Jacques 141, lower [link] than the F-35B" The basic level is inevitable. Such [link] a vertical takeoff and landing [link] aircraft [link] for combat is not necessarily dominant, the real purpose, it should be the other special fields.

"Are [link] you [link] so [link] sure? [link] Maybe [link] there [link] consequently [link] not [link] it?"


"? [link] No, [link] you do [link] not [link] see this [link] pattern," [link] he [link] pointed [link] to [link] the [link] strange [link] fox [link] goes [link] face: "This [link] is [link] the [link] first [link] human [link] sacrifices [link] when [link] Lu ritual [link] mask [link] tape, [link] which [link] must [link] be [link] buried in [link] the [link] tomb of [link] a [link] very [link] special [link] person [link] in [link] what [link] capacity, [link] It may [link] be [link] even [link] more [link] honorable [link] than [link] the [link] emperor [link] at [link] the [link] time. [link] "


I [link] blurted out: [link] "The [link] Emperor [link] his [link] father."


Third Uncle [link] stared [link] at [link] me, [link] they [link] wanted [link] to [link] close [link] up [link] the [link] paper [link] goes [link] on, [link] I'm [link] a [link] hold [link] toward [link] him smile: [link] "Uncle, [link] you [link] do not [link] rush [link] it [link] up, [link] how [link] do [link] I say [link] this [link] thing [link] is [link] coming, [link] this time [link] how [link] about [link] you [link] have [link] to [link] take [link] me [link] to [link] see [link] this. [link] "


He [link] shouted: [link] "No, [link] this [link] scouring [link] the [link] sand is [link] not [link] so [link] simple, [link] and [link] that place [link] can not [link] air [link] conditioning, [link] but [link] also [link] numerous organs, [link] and [link] subject [link] to Xiecai [link] you [link] are [link] your father's [link] only [link] child, [link] if [link] you [link] have [link] happened, [link] I'm [link] not [link] let [link] you. [link] father [link] chops [link] skin [link] can [link] not. [link] "


I [link] also [link] shouted: [link] "That's [link] never [link] been [link] on when [link] I [link] leave!!" Then [link] put [link] the [link] sheet [link] of [link] paper [link] from [link] his [link] hand [link] suddenly [link] taken [link] out, turned [link] around and [link] left. [link] I [link] know [link] this [link] man [link] tri [link] event [link] of [link] their [link] favorite [link] things, [link] that [link] principle [link] does [link] not see [link] this [link] antique, [link] likewise see [link] a [link] woman, [link] I [link] allowed [link] him [link] to [link] eat [link] it, [link] it [link] really [link] only [link] a [link] few [link] steps, [link] he [link] surrendered [link] , http://www.tiffany-andco.us.com/ and [link] to catch [link] up, [link] pulled [link] my [link] hand [link] the [link] paper: [link] "Ok, [link] you [link] are [link] powerful, [link] but we [link] can [link] say well, when [link] we [link] under [link] Dao [link] Dong, [link] so [link] you [link] may [link] have [link] to [link] stay [link] on top [link] of [link] the [link] head [link] office, [link] right?"


I [link] suddenly [link] elated [link] heart: [link] when [link] I'm [link] going [link] down [link] to can [link] you [link] blocked [link] lives [link] me? [link] Busy [link] nodded: [link] "!! [link] Word [link] go, [link] we [link] all [link] listen [link] to [link] you, [link] you [link] make [link] me [link] why [link] I'm [link] doing."


Tri [link] helpless [link] sigh [link] of [link] mouth, said:. [link] "The two [link] of [link] us [link] do [link] not [link] succeed, then [link] transferred [link] tomorrow [link] I [link] experienced [link] a [link] few [link] folks [link] over [link] the [link] past [link] few [link] days [link] I [link] have [link] this [link] solution [link] paintings, [link] you have to [link] help [link] me to [link] repairing [link] something." [link] then [link] he quickly [link] wrote [link] a note [link] to [link] me and said, [link] "do [link] not [link] buy [link] a [link] fake, [link] as [link] well, [link] ready [link] to [link] set [link] out [link] the first [link] line [link] of travel, [link] or [link] not [link] to [link] the [link] place [link] where [link] we [link] first detained." [link] I [link] nodded [link] , http://www.marc-jacobs.us.com/ on [link] each [link] separately [link] to [link] get [link] busy.


Tri [link] wanted [link] things [link] are [link] more [link] tricky, I [link] think [link] probably [link] what [link] I [link] deliberately make things difficult, [link] because [link] this single house [link] really [link] do [link] not store [link] things [link] in general, [link] such [link] as [link] what [link] split [link] waterproof [link] miner, [link] steel [link] pipe, [link] shovel [link] soil [link] test [link] head, multi-purpose [link] knife, [link] folding [link] shovel, [link] short [link] handle [link] hammer, [link] bandages, [link] nylon [link] rope, [link] and [link] so, [link] I just [link] bought [link] a [link] half [link] spent [link] nearly [link] a [link] thousand [link] dollars, [link] and [link] my [link] heart [link] is called [link] the [link] distressed [link] ah, [link] Zhi [link] Ma [link] old [link] fox, [link] so [link] rich [link] yet [link] so [link] damn [link] mean.


Three [link] days [link] later, [link] I [link] still [link] have [link] two [link] old [link] guys [link] Panning [link] My [link] Uncle, [link] uncle [link] also [link] the [link] day [link] I bought [link] that [link] stuff [link] back [link] hand [link] dragon [link] boy, [link] five [link] to [link] Shandong [link] seeds [link] temple [link] and [link] then [link] west over [link] 100 [link] km [link] of the [link] place.
