You'd think that comparing the growing problem of global warming to a nuclear war would have everyone running out to buy fluorescent lightbulbs and trading their cars in for hybrids, but no, it's just another story that people see and say, "oh my." and then return to their lives. Why are we not worried? See this sentence from the story:
"Overall, it said 65 countries were likely to lose over 15 percent of their agricultural output by 2100 at a time when the world's population was expected to head from six billion now to nine billion people."
WHAT YEAR? 2100? OH, WE'VE GOT PLENTY OF TIME. HELL, I'LL BE DEAD BY THEN, WHY WORRY ABOUT IT NOW?
All of us reading this story are going to be dead by 2100. The year 2100 is too far into the future for us to worry about. That's how people are, we procrastinate. Don't tell us it's not going to effect us until 2100, tell us about how it's effecting us now! That's the only way you're going to get our attention! Remember, a great number of people on this planet can barely see through to next month much less the year 2100. Break it down into bite size pieces. 2007-2010-2015...
