The world’s population is growing beyond belief. And, it seems like with each new generation, more energy needs are required to keep us fed and entertained than ever before. Forget about food and water, our Ipads and other electronics are sucking down copious amounts of our precious natural resources to placate our insatiable needs.
Not enough of us are asking the hard questions about the environment. We just cruise along, enjoying all of our luxuries. We assume that as long as we have the credit cards to pay for whatever we want, than its nobody’s business what car we drive or how huge a house we choose to live in. Our kids are inheriting a worn-out planet as a result.
It is starting to become obvious that we cannot continue down this path much longer. If we do, it won’t be long before we will start seeing drastically horrific weather patterns: droughts will sweep once-fertile fields, leaving hungry nations scrabbling for food where there once was plenty.
I know it sounds depressing, but unless we make some changes, it will only get much worse. Already, we can see the worsening hurricanes and tornados. How much worse will it have to get before we make the necessary changes?
So, what will it take before our nations start returning to ecologically sound principles. Will we ever truly slow down and protect the roses?
It is starting to look like we make never see a change from our governments. Its going to be up to the little people — people like you and me — to make a difference.
There are a variety of ways you can make an impact. Are you conserving electricity with high-efficiency light bulbs and appliances? Do you use the least amount of water possible when you shower?
You might think these are small steps. But if enough of us take those steps, we can change the course of environmental history.
