why are people still using thier money to buy oil guzzlers? why people not buying hybrids cars solely. Politicians only reflect what they think people
want, If people lead then politicians will follow, they are to serve the public interest so to keep thier positions. The problem is not politicians,
the public is the problem because the public does not care about the enviroment until the earth is dead and people dont any alternatives,
i think the problem will persist.
As a member of the public i will also argue and state a case for the plubic.
As creatures driven by instinct, our most basic ones have the strongest drive, short term survival, air , food , water , reproduction and shelter.
Our priorities are mainly based on short term survival like putting food on the table for ourselves and our children, having children to ensure the
species live on, this is what sets the agenda for society, not the long term survival of the planet. We also dont live very long so long term
consequences of our actions are not witnessed or suffered by the person or people who commit the offence. The generations to come will suffer our
present disregard for the earth.
