While I am not entirely convinced of Global Warming. I am completely 100% convinced of climate change due to human activities and Human impact on the
Throughout time there have been ignorant
beliefs that humans have had little impact on the earth and that the world was source of
both geological and natural. This by its very nature is a false belief to which Civilizations have fallen because they
depleted or polluted their resources.
The debates happening about Global Warming and climate change remind me of The Great Dust Bowl
debates. There were people who believed (there are those that still do) that this was a natural cycle and humans had no impact what so
ever. Yet there were those that could see what we were doing was severely impacting the climate and soil. We payed a heavy price back then until
things got so bad people were forced to leave their homes and demanded something be done! The economic tolls were tremendous and continued the
depression. It wasn't until President Roosevelt took action did it start to abate.
History must repeat itself it seems...
We will Change, but my fear is that it will be too late unlike the Dust Bowl there are tipping points that may be impossible for us to turn back from.
Like a car sitting balanced on a cliff ready to plummet once it starts to fall you can't put it in reverse...
There are somewhere around 590 million cars in the world today and I wont go into how much exaust they put out, nor how many buses, trains, and planes
all adding pollutants into the Atmosphere.
It is folly to think humans do not have an impact and even more ridiculous to wait until we HAVE to do something about it. Why people are not more
concerned about getting rid of fossil fuels is beyond me(well we all know The Voice or other distractions are more important), and that is not even
bringing up the wars that are fought over them...
Think about this our world is much like a fishbowl
something that is hard for most people to imagine. All they see are such wide open spaces
and not the world as it really is. We do not get NEW air, or New Oceans, we live in a Bubble a very large bubble but still an "closed
I am curious how many people would start their car in a Garage leave it running and then go sit in it?
Why not? There is plenty of air in a Garage right?
Think about the logic, eventually you will have enough cars in the big enclosed Garage that Earth is becoming.
Would you go and sit in that running car sitting in an enclosed garage?
