Why is that global warming is not taken seriously at all?The cost of development is huge. Everywhere in the world, natural resources are being destroyed to set up huge factories. Many of the cities are built on farms, lovely fields and enough space that can really give a big boost to agriculture, if left untouched.
Yet, when the whole world talks about global warming, we seem to be more interested in all sorts of "development" that will ultimately destroy everything good about nature. Agriculture is already on the decline and those who are so keen to destroy nature are least bothered about it. Am also told that global warming is directly or indirectly connected with all attempts to destroy nature.
