We can dismiss global warming as another 'we're all going to die "fad"', given that the millennium bug was overhyped. Did you have any evidence with which to back up such a wildly unsubstantiated claim or am I missing something? Alright, the human race is unlikely to face extinction in the next 100 years as a direct result of global warming, but that doesn't mean that it is an issue we should ignore. Your attititude seems typical of someone whose ignorance has led them to the wrong conclusions. Please prove me wrong with a worthwile reply.
