    No incisiveness anymore? You've been doing too much filing. Have a pink rinse.

                              back to the topic question, there was a recent documentary on tv about teenagers about to pop.. i was quite horrified that one of my parents' tenants and her pregnant teenager were on there... if they WANT to get pregnant, the sex ed will only serve as TIPS on how to best do it, so really what needs to be drummed into everyones heads is the difficulty in young motherhood - because thesedays theres too much acceptance of it happening. i'm in full support if the mother to be is in a situation where she is able to provide and care for the child, besides regardless of age some mothers still struggle and then cant cope and then their kids are taken away. but how responsible can a teenager really be? its a wierd one isnt it?

                              anyway.. my answer to the topic? Hormones.. i guess, the reason teenage pregnancies are a problem is beacuse teenagers arent supposed to be responsible parents right.. well then how can we expect them to be responsible before they get pregnant? especially with all those hormones runnin around.

                              and in the case of the girl on the documentary (as her mother implied to us one day).. so that they can have their very own coucil houses yay. i bloomin hope she was joking.

                                  Very true, in terms of the planet (never mind the Universe) we are incredibly short lived, so we just can't grasp the enormous amounts of time involved.

                                  And it's not just going forward, we are short sighted looking back as well even when we have records*.

                                  I'd like to think I'm focused on the next 200 years or so.
                                  That seems to me to be a reasonable period to try and plan.

                                  200 years ago it was 1821 and the world was a completely different place, and (ignoring the odd flukey guess) I don't think anyone then could possibly have predicted...

                                  I'll get it off my chest - I'm fed-up of all the panic surrounding Global Warming / Climate Change.

                                  I'm more pi**ed off at the forced cost to us all - when it will mean absolutely nothing.

                                  And that's where I'm going to bow out on this one.

                                  It doesn't really matter if we agree or not as none of us can change what's been decided and thankfully none of us will be around when things really go pear shaped.

                                  When you have 15 minutes, have a read of the link I added a few posts ago. It is certainly NOT denying the existence of Climate Change nor the need to take action.

                                  But you're talking about changing the behaviour of everyone on the planet and that's going to take time.
                                  And the changes are already happening, so we need to take some action to delay what may be inevitable, so we can make some adjustments.

                                  But that's the whole point - we should be focussing our energy and money on ADAPTING to live in these climates, because no matter how much we dislike it, the change IS going to happen.

                                  IF the Worlds population is growing too quickly, we need to address that too.
