RCA : I think global warming is directly proportional to population - We control population- we control natural resources and we control our planet. Though impractical to accomplish but thats what I beleive is happening.<br />
<br />
With initiatives across the world will slow down may be..however the root cause..

l2498
Population has been out of control for decades
We rape our natural resources
and our planet is out of control

We are finding that though we have been trying for many years to control everything we have no ability to control anything

Initiatives don't work because of the greed that is humanity
Even talking about alternatives don't work because of opposing interests.
The only way we will get it back under control is to surrender to nature and hope it heals itself

I totally agree with you, even at home doing little things like turning off the lights when not needed or not turning off the TV when no one is watching having the chargers plugged in with nothing attached to be charged. All these little things affect our earth, if you can't get your own family to control these little things that may help how can you get the entire population to do anything. The greedy say there is no climate change- so what can one do - Nothing but wait for nature to take over.

Actually my friend we have the technology to drastically reduce our impact which would decrease the problem significantly.
the problem is people see two sides and think they have to choose A or B
If we get to a 25 % reduction that is better than nothing.
Realistically if governments chose a middle path using oil but promoting and bringing alternative green renewable energy sources we could achieve much more than 25%

Very true WarriorLove................... Hard to understand the concept of destroying the world for a hand full of greedy corporations.................... There are many more of us than them............ they need to heed the warnings

We've been burning all this coal and oil for only about a century. We do NOT need to! (The energy companies work very hard at discouraging this kind of thought.)

Thank you Candyapple........... it's good to see a comment on this post after a long lull in the interest

*bravo*

Very true toirneach.............. Look at BP and their environmentally friendly ads they run then look at their actions<br />
There is a real disconnect between their words and their actions.<br />
<br />
I believe that is called outright lies

Well said Mary........... it seems you speak nothing but truth

Greenland ice melt largest measured since they began measuring it

redbear I agree with most of what you are trying to say but I use canvas bags to shop.<br />
I bought 10 of then to ensure I had enough to carry all my groceries.<br />
<br />
BodhiSvaha, Very true we need to address the cause as well as the solutions.<br />
I make environmental statements to address the solutions because they have a better chance of getting quicker response. In the long term we have to train generations on how to view the problem

If people weren't so polluted in the mind<br />
the earth wouldn't be so polluted<br />
the negative state of the world is a direct reflection of the negative state that is within most human beings

I would help with mass send to circle and remmber to Reuse ,Recycle and try and buy recycle good as well even little things help ask for hang when buy clothing,paper bags, compost and may more just stop and take the time to thing before you react and rember that there only one plant that we can liveon so far.<br />
<br />
Recycle Reuse

Thank you for your comment.......smiles

Very nice!

To pray that something will happen is fine but to take action and to speak out loud, strong and often is more likely to get results .<br />
Most these days seem not to understand the signs that something is happening.<br />
The signs that nature is tired of the abuses go unnoticed by many.<br />
God helps those who help themselves.<br />
To stand strong on an issue identifies you as a go to person who understands the issues for when those who now doubt begin to the realization that they were wrong all this time.

all we can do is pray that many more wake up

Best way to insure failure is to give up and do nothing

think it is way to late the balance is way yo off

Nice.... Thanks for the comment ez

Time is the everlasting god that steals away life's moments... <br />
drop by drop<br />
with each second that dwindles into the forgotten past.

Thank you for your comment Jacelove.<br />
Every little bit helps to curb the effects of pollution and environmental degradation.<br />
Just our small steps buy us a little more time to allow the governments of the world to stop infighting and to adopt changes that could help our planet to heal

I completely agree with you . Everyone can do something. People should think of ways to help instead of saying that they can't do anything . They should remember prevention is always better than cure. We still have time , so why not use it properly. I pick up litter whenever I can & dispose it in the dustbin, I also encourage people to plant trees. i think if we try we can succeed. Let's save the earth & make it a better place to live!! Keep encouraging people!! with best wishes,

Thank you my dear dear friend Flour

I think that is a most splendid idea my friend.
