Adhering Towards Green Living Rapidly

Feb 25, 2008
Apparently, a lot of us have turned towards green living mainly because we may soon find ourselves without a planet if we continue to do our usual stuff. A lot of these practices have been harming the environment and while we may not be aware of it, climate change and global warming are the main reasons why we have to start thinking wise as far as going green is concerned.

While there is a growing consensus that human activity plays a role in global warming, many of the findings are far from certain, there are still a great many variables of which we know little, and we are in the dark as to which factors may be the key ones to address. Perhaps more troubling, we have no clear idea of what the solution(s) might be nor a coherent plan for addressing the problem. Regardless of this, many would have us plunge head-first into a whole series of actions, changes, laws, regulations and restrictions, the effects of which are very far from certain environmentally, and potentially catastrophic economically and socially.

Over the years, the scientific community has amassed an enormous amount of knowledge about heart attacks; what conditions tend to cause them, what environmental and hereditary factors affect them, how to treat them, and perhaps more importantly, they have made a large percentage of our population aware of these factors and conscious of them, causing may to change their lifestyles, eating habits, etc.

While this is indeed a wonderful thing, in the process, this vast amount of knowledge has had unforeseen an unintended consequences which the medical community and society at large have had to live with, perhaps unnecessarily.

As a society, we assumed that the more information we collected and disseminated to our citizens about heart attacks, the better the care we would be able provide. But we did almost exactly the opposite; we made them panic and run to the ER nine times for every one time it was warranted. We overburdened our hospitals and we created a huge and very costly way to save lives that were not in danger. And we then had to correct that mistake after years and perhaps after many lives which could have been saved were lost, had the hospital staff not been so busy treating non-existing heart attacks.

Global warming is like heart attacks. There are thousands of elements which potentially could contribute to global warming, there are thousands of environmental and climactic events which could be affected or worsened by global warming, but we're not at all sure which ones and what their relative importance is; we're not even sure we've looked at all the potential factors and variables.

The world is being warned of hunger and thirst for millions due to global warming. The continuous emission of gases such as carbon dioxide and methane has become worse, the situation especially in the recent years. Global warming has triggered climate change in all parts of the world, most apparent of which is the warming of the polar zones which has flushed water from the melted ice to the oceans, disrupting the ecology and the affecting the lifestyle of millions of people.
