A Whirlwind of Confusion
I am begininning to think that maybe the majority of global warming is a big hoax. Some scientists believe that Al Gore is wrong, some believe that he is lying, and some feel that they know everything. If there are any scientists out there that are reading this and thinking to your selves that this girl has no idea what she is talking about, then I am cool with that; just no rude comments please : ). Anyways, Learning about who is right and wrong, and reading articles, blogs and watching videos and movies, are starting to make a constant cycle – a tornado, a whirlwind. You learn about one persons view on global warming, you share some really good thoughts, and them BAM! You see and interesting article contradicting what you just learned about. So then you go on and share some more thoughts and then you guessed it, a video link shows up on the middle of the page begging for you to click on it. Then the cycle starts over again.
The National Geographic web article, which was published about a year after the movie [An Inconvenient Truth] came out, one of the opening sentences to this article was:
The message in An Inconvenient Truth, the new movie starring former U.S. Vice President Al Gore, is clear: Humans are causing global warming, and the effects are devastating.
I thought it was interesting how the article says that humans are causing global warming. Yes, part of this problem is our fault, but all of this can’t be our destruction. Animals [especially cows], factories, and other things give off C02 also. In addition, the majority of the hyper links led back to their own website. Although Nat Geo covers a lot of topics about the world, and everyday things, but I think this has led me to watching out for bias.
