When gas prices go up people have to change their behavior. They have to plan their errands and outings more efficiently, and sometimes just stay
home. People will reduce, reuse, and recycle more. This is due to the cost of living, it will go up. It will cost more to transport goods around the
planet. The planet's temperature will drop if less people are driving. Less pollution from people throwing their garbage out the car windows. Plastics
made from oil will also go up in expense. This is another reason to recycle the plastic. Back when George W. Bush was in office gas was at $4.12 after
Hurricane Katrina. People quit their jobs that were too far to drive to. Then the nation and world were plunged into the Deep Recession... Car pool
when you can, buy efficient small cars, plan your errands, go less places, invent new cars that are used on renewable energy. A car in sunny areas
could run off solar panels maybe.
We all are going to have to change our ways Global warming is real, and it is going to get really bad. The poison ivy in my yard is now on steroids
from the CO2. It grows to be thirty feet tall up the trees. The leaves are as big as my hand. It is horrible and spreads more. All over my bushes. It
has gotten really bad in the twelve years I have lived here. The poison is more poisonous and spreads more easily. Gardeners tend to notice changes
more than other people do.
Our storms are more violent, the trees just fall over in the rain now. We just had a microburst hit the neighbor hood knocking over at least five
trees per lot. One person lost twenty. A car was smashed, the telephone pole collapsed in three pieces, a large three foot diameter tree fell across
the street, someone's garage got smashed.... It wasn't even on the news... It was crazy! It all happened in two minutes. I had five trees fall over,
lost shingles, had ten wheel barrow loads of sticks dropped, and about a thousand pine cones thrown down. The weird thing was twenty trucks showed up
to help clean up the damage with in an hour. That was weird. We were with out power for two days. It's like the officials know that climate stuff is
happening. So... maybe the gas issue is about controlling human behavior to reduce climate change without a panic.
