Our Guilty Stewardship

BBC News has reported that some scientists have determined that the sun seems to be 'dimming.' They have evidence that there has been a 22% drop in sunlight over the last five decades and believe that pollutants have been reflecting sunlight back into space that used to shine down on our planet.

Maybe this helps explain some of the unusual weather patterns around the world.

If concerns like this are true:

Even the most pessimistic forecasts of global warming may now have to be drastically revised upwards.

That means a temperature rise of 10 degrees Celsius by 2100 could be on the cards, giving the UK a climate like that of North Africa, and rendering many parts of the world uninhabitable.

We've done more damage to the ecosystem that we realized.
