I am going to be brutally honest here; I think it’s probably too late to stop cataclysmic climate change. I’m not a scientist nor do I play one on television, but I do believe we have managed to cook our own goose… for good.
Google “too late climate change” and you’ll see I am not alone in this thought. Because of how we have set up society – completely and utterly based on mass consumption, disposable goods, and the corporate never-ending chase of higher profits, I just don’t see how we would be able (or willing, if I am being honest) to stop using all fossil fuels and really do the work necessary to change the projection of our future. I don’t buy that it’s possible, no matter how many lightbulbs we change or electric cars we drive.
I do think we should work to clean up our own lives, if only to put off the inevitable and secure a few more years of clean(ish) water and healthy foods. All of us should be aware of our own carbon footprint and how our actions do affect every other human on Earth, including those already suffering from human-induced climate change.
With that in mind, I just wanted to be upfront with all of you readers, including those who have been with me since the start in 2006 and those of you who may have just signed up looking for tips on greening your bathroom or whatever. I don’t want to write about that stuff anymore for two reasons:
