April, 2004: Studies by
UN scientiists show
levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere have jumped abruptly,
raising fears that global warming may be accelerating out of
control. Global warming may be the biggest long-term threat to
life on Earth. Rising temperatures can drive thousands of species
to extinction, trigger more frequent floods or droughts, and
sink low-lying islands by raising sea levels.
A point source
that causes global warming is the nature-desensitization of contempory
thinking. Global warming is not normal to the natural systems
that flow through people and Earth.

problems facing the world, warn UN scientists.
A point source
that causes marine dead zones is the nature-desensitization of
contempory thinking. Marine dead zones are not normal to the
natural systems that flow through people and Earth.

A point source
that causes mental illness disorders is the nature-desensitization
