I have moved from understanding the gravity of the situation with climate change and wanting to do something about it, to not caring anymore. There are way to many people in this world that couldn't care less. Some out of ignorance, some out of greed, some that can't be inconvienced, some that do not have the fiancial means to change directions. So knowing fully well that a few good people with very good intentions will never really do anything in time to make a difference, I have given up the fight. I only have 30 to 40 years left on the planet at best, no kids and have no more energy to fight the good fight. I will live out my years knowing that they were the good ones compared to what is coming. We as race will damage this planet for our future generations and there is nothing that will stop it. It's a lost cause. Just glad I won't be here to see the worst of it. How is that for a good dose of reality for this fine September day.
Climate Change is a multi faceted issue and not one that is man made alone. This earth has cooled and heated in cycle for millions of years due to significant geological or extraterrestrial events - which by the way could happen again today.
Considering the human side of things - there are many celebrities and politicians that want us common folk to change our ways. Yet they drive big cars, own big homes, take big trips and spend a lot of money of produce that are martially or wholly made of petroleum products. Even their ideas for fixing some of the issues have economic impacts that do not effect them of or even most down to the middle class. The lower class or poor are impacted by that.
If our leaders do not set the example to live by and continue to live lavishly then how do people take them seriously.
