Have you ever watched An Inconvenient Truth (2006)? It’s a documentary film by Al Gore, United States former Vice President. He made this film as a campaign to raise global warming awareness as a worldwide’s problem.
Along with this film, from news everywhere like newspaper, magazine, internet, TV, I’ve known that global warming is real. It’s not only an unproven theory anymore. I mean, look at our global temperature. Whether it’s too cold or way too hot. Left alone the unstable whether, that we’re supposed to have dry season in August but we still have heavy rainy day in the middle of it. Or the frequent rise of sea water level because of the melting gletser in the pole? Did you know that the snow thickness in Puncak Jaya, Papua, is degrading by years? What do you call that if it’s not global warming?
So it did bother me alot when a friend of mine said that he didn’t believe in global warming, that there’s no global warming happening. Instead he said, “There is somekind of World Secret Organization that takes control of everything that is happening, and takes some profits of it. This organisation also manipulates informations that related to it”. That statement really did make me rolling on the floor, laughing out loud. Any Russian guy really always think that everything is secret-agency-related. Haha.
Seriously. If we don’t believe in global warming when science proofs are everywhere, then there’s no other thing to say that it’s God’s work, right? I’m not gonna say something about punishment for what’ve done to the earth in the past, but it’s just how it works. The causality effect, Newton’s 3rd Law, they’re all talks about the same thing. When we do a thing, we got something in return. If we don’t believe in science, then we must be believe in God. Because there’s no other explanation how could gletser at the pole is melting? How could, let say, we, human make them melt when we can’t even control the pregnant moms to give birth?
That, my friend, is something we need to overthink. And if you also haven’t watch The Happening (2008) yet, in my humble opinion, you have to. We need to be good with mother nature, because somehow it has somekind of self defense, that I bet we don’t want to mess up with.
