I AM not surprised at the weather we are having. Scientists have been warning us for nearly 50 years and nobody would listen.

But what does surprise me is the younger generation are not protesting; it is their matter as much as ours.

I think the way we are abusing this planet is selfishness and greed beyond belief.

These ignorant politicians and heads of state should be made to watch the film The Day After Tomorrow every night. The film is not altogether fiction; a lot of research was put into that film.

There won’t be a Terra Nova waiting for us and if there is alien life they wouldn’t have us because we are a liability.
