    Its winter. Also the average temp around the world is increasing. I know about the global cycle but it is increasing faster than should be expected. Even if let's say global climate change is not happening what is wrong with leaving the earth better off than when we entered it. However mankind does not have a very good track record in that area. Our rivers and streams are toilets and unsafe to swim in due to our efforts.
