All sorts of people have expressed their views, from raging hippies to politicians to owners of oil companies - each has his view, each puts his spin on what is going on. But so far, no one has asked the person at the centre of it all - Mother Nature.
So, in the interests of getting a wider view on events, I went out and found her....
Me: Hello, thank you for agreeing to this interview.
Mother Nature: Yeah, whatever.
Me: The theory of Global Warming is causing a lot of discussion and concern amongst humans. Can you comment on the different views? Who is right?
Mother Nature: Well I get hot and cold flushes from time to time, but what woman doesn't?
Me: So it is not caused my Human action?
Mother Nature: Well those little rats get me a bit hot under the collar sometimes, but nah, most of the time I don't notice they are there.
Me: So Global Warming is not going to destroy you, then?
Mother Nature: Destroy me? Are you kidding? I like a bit of a suntan, don't you?
Me: Well yes, but there are theories that if the earth continues to warm up, life as we know it may be virtually wiped out...
Mother Nature: Oh, sure, you humans might have it a bit rough, but hey, you've had it coming to you haven't you? Besides, I like a change of outfit from time to time, you understand? I like a bit of variety. Maybe it's time for the insects to have a go at being in charge, what do you think? They like it hot.
Me: So that is it? Humans are out?
Mother Nature: Could be! Who knows what the next fashion could be? I've put up with you for 10,000 years! I've treated you pretty well, I think, given you more chances than you deserved but now you are starting to piss me off,so if you don't mind, I've got things to do...
So there you have it. Come in, Human Race, your time is up! Mother Nature, meanwhile, has plans for the future.
