These studies have shown that inthe near future, the global meansurface temperature will rise by1.4° to 5.8°C. Warming will begreatest over land areas, and athigh latitudes.It will be necessary tocreate early warning systemsand education for epidemic pre-paredness. Improved water andair pollution control will becomeincreasingly essential for humanhealth. Public education willhave to be directed at changes inpersonal behavior. Training of researchers and health profes-sionals must become an essen-tial part of the world becomingmore responsible towards theexpected outcome of GlobalClimate Change (GCC).The average temperature inmany regions has been increasingin recent decades. The globalaverage surface temperature hasincreased by 0.6° + 0.2° C overthe last century. Globally, 1998was the warmest year and the1990s the warmest decade onrecord. Many countries have ex-perienced increases in rainfall,particularly in the countries situ-ated in the mid to high latitudes.In some regions, such as parts of Asia and Africa, the frequencyand intensity of droughts havebeen observed to increase in re-cent decades. Episodes of El Niño,which creates great storms, havebeen more frequent, persistentand intense since mid-1970scompared with the previous 100years.All these are signs thatthe earth is sick. Its climate ischanging, making it more difficultfor any kind to survive. The earthis losing its ability to balance itself due to the imbalances reratedby human activities. Projec-tions of future climate changeare derived from a series of experiments made by com-puter based global climatemodels.These are worked outon estimates of aspects suchas future population growthand energy use. Climatologistsof the IntergovernmentalPanel on Climate Change(IPCC) have viewed the resultsof several experiments in orderto estimate changes in climatein the course of this century.
 
 
In “the century of total war”, andthe new millennium, Europe is seeing analarming resurgence in xenophobia andracial hatred. A short review from the InterPress Service highlights the rise of neo-Nazism in 2000 in Europe and suggests that“far from being a fringe activity, racism,violence and neo-nationalism have becomenormal in some communities.The problems need to tackledmuch earlier, in schools and with socialprograms.” Ethnic minorities and differentcultures in one country can often be usedas a scapegoat for the majority duringtimes of economic crisis. That is one reasonwhy Nazism became so popular.In various places throughout West-ern Europe, in 2002, as Amnesty Interna-tional highlights, there has been a rise inracist attacks and sentiments againstboth Arabs and Jews, in light of theincreasing hostilities in the MiddleEast. In 1997, Human RightsWatch noted that, “The U.K. has oneof the highest levels of racially-motivated violence and harassmentin Western Europe, and the problemis getting worse.” In April 1999, Lon-don saw two bombs explode in pre-dominantly ethnic minority areas, inthe space of one week, where a Nazigroup has claimed responsibility. Thesummer of 2001 saw many race-related riots in various parts of north-ern England. Spain hasseen increased racial violence lately.The growing economy invites immi-grants from North African countriessuch as Morocco. However, the poorconditions that immigrants have hadto endure and the already raciallycharged region has led to friction andconfrontations.
We generate our own environment. We get exactly what we deserve. How can we resent a life we've created ourselves? Who's to blame, who's to credit but us? Who can change it, anytime we wish, but us?”
