ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's comments on issues related to global warming. According to the author, the politicization of global warming highly increased the awareness of climate change in the 1990s and made people obstinate about their habits. He says that Hurricane Katrina demonstrated a small slice of the potential devastation that global warming can wreck in the future.
