I never get many comments on environmental issues and sometimes I wonder why? I don't believe people don't care--really how can people not care?
I think sometimes people feel they can't make a difference, so why bother? But they CAN make a difference, everyone can.
I think sometimes they think they aren't educated enough to argue/discuss the issues. Do you understand that the Earth is warming up because people don't treat energy like a precious resource? That is all you need to know. Treat energy like prime rib. Make the most out of every last bite :) Or like good gin :)
It can be depressing, but life is too short to get depressed. We can't always afford to make big changes, but investigate environmental options when you have to change something--from a lightbulb to a car. Even investigate the companies you buy from, even your grocery store. See what they are doing for the environment. It is your right and my childrens' right to do so.
Recycle, Re-use, Conserve. And question.
We can all do it. I'm far from perfect, but I try everyday to be better.
World Resources Institute is a great website and NOT depressing. These people are actually achieving things.
And for the Americans, here is a Great article that is positive and powerful.
