I'm all for treating our planet better, I think it's certainly needed, but I highly disagree with the system set up to combat these problems. Wall St.
gets to create more commodities to capitalize on and private corporations once again have money funneled to them through our terrific governments. I
have to give up more of my liberties for government intrusion into my private life, while MNCs will make billions.
The Earth does go through drastic changes, all by its little self. So to say that this is conclusively a man made problem would be ignoring history,
and the multitude of other scientists who disagree that we are having as large an impact as is being channeled through the fear mongering, contrary to
what Al Gore has to say. In short, we can't be sure that this is purely caused by us, as the Earth has been much hotter in the last thousand years,
and we had an Ice Age in the not so distant past, especially in respect to the time frame of a planet. These changing weather patterns all occurred
before the industrial revolution, without human interference.
I need a better plan of action to get behind any piece of legislation. Pollution should certainly be curbed and we, as humans, need to treat the Earth
better, but at no time should anyone support what is coming from the politicians' mouths.
