First off...mankind has got to become more responsible. Period. Does it mean we caused "climate change"? Absolutely not. It does mean, however, that
humans need to put greed aside and stop being so reckless because some of the things we do are not good for the environment we live in. Will it ever
happen? Not as long as there is "wealth" to be made from consumers.
Humans have ruined entire ecosystems. We have also polluted the atmosphere in areas all across the globe, and some so bad they can't even see the
sunset, or sunrise so they need LCD TV's to hide from the truth (search China's fake sunset). America has only recently begun cleaning up its act
and largely because the government forced regulations upon pollution laden industries. Rightly so, as the CEO's and board members didn't think to
clean up their acts collectively by themselves. It took regulation to force morality. Who would've thought the gov't actually did something for
it's people? So what did the business owners do? Packed up their businesses and jobs and moved overseas. Where the SAME exact problem persists today.
So who do we blame here?
We have destroyed lands, polluted airways, ruined waterways and eliminated species of animals. The facts are easily sought out if one takes the time
to research. If you drive around America, you see trash all over the place on roadsides, hillsides and front yards. Why? Because alot of people just
don't care. They are happily living the fallacy that we don't destroy anything or cause any damage to the environment we live in. I see it on the
very state highway I reside on. It is disgusting to deny we have a pollution problem. We need to focus on being responsible. That doesn't mean the
gov't has to tell us. Our mothers taught us all to pick up after ourselves...so where did we lose that mentality?
We can all do something about it and it doesn't involve the government or taxing the rich, which is what they want to do. We can clean our waterways,
airways and front yards if we all collectively begin to care about the Earth upon which we live. We start picking up after ourselves and stop being
lazy. Business owners do their best to eliminate the pollution they produce by coming up with their own real solutions rather than waiting for the
gov't to mandate how they must act. It is ridiculous that industries and businesses must be forced by gov't to do things they morally should be
doing in the first place. Then again, we as consumers continue to buy the same chinese junk that is produced in the same factories that pump out all
the nasty toxins in their atmosphere.
Let's face it....profits first right?
Wrong. The climate is going to change if humans are here or not, but we must do our best to clean up after ourselves. We should have as little
influence on our environment as possible...and I'm no hippie.
