I keep reading websites and blogs- most of them American- which state that there are still no direct causes between man and global warming and that man made global warming is just a myth. I t appears that many meteorologists are sceptical about global warming.
In the media we are still arguing over whether it is true or not? Are we in for a warmer climate? are the sea levels going to rise ? are we going to have a new ice age? My answer to all those sceptical people is who cares?
If it is happening or not, is it not a good thing, that we are collectively thinking about our environment? is it not a good thing that we are taking steps to reduce the ammount of waste we each produce? The new interest in global warming and environmental issues can only be a good thing, right?
To me it does not matter why people are starting to recycle and think about where their produce comes from or how much waste they produce, it’s the fact that they are doing it. Whether you are thinking about the environment, money or living a lower impact lifestyle, the less we consume, the less we produce and the less fossil feuls we use the better.
If it takes the fear of climate change to wake up some people to the fact that we are living a vulgar and non sustainable existance, good. The fact is that we are, polluting the planet, nobody can argue that, so therefore reducing our personal environmental effect is a good thing.
If in the news it said “we were all wrong about climate change” how many people would stop taking an interest and forget recycling and where their food comes from? Climate change is not a single issue but seems to attract a single minded attitude, our planet is constantly being polluted, day and night, if this changes the climate or not, should we not try and do something about it?
