Personally, I feel that we need to start understanding our impact on global warming, and work in whatever way we can to reduce our carbon footprint. It may be like a drop in an ocean, but then every drop counts! It cant be that difficult to walk those few blocks instead of taking out your vehicle; or turning off those light when they are not in use. Plastic has become such an important aspect of our life but we don't realize exactly how badly it affects our environment! Change begins at our society, in our home, and in our daily life! Once every human is empowered and conscious of the impact of his actions on the globe, things will definitely move in a positive direction!

Sure. Thanks for publishing a worthwhile post as your first. <smiles>

How about this? Taking lessons from history, the colonialists did not hand back freedom without fighting a colony's war of independence. A lot of people died in those wars for freedom.

The big polluters behave typicallly like the colonialists of the previous centuries. They have armies fighting for them, right?

Hmm, science has a long way to go, it's still unable to explain the most basic thing on/in Earth.

To you. But there are always going to be people like you. So science teaches those who ARE teachable.

I had an idea someone would fall for that, but not you, Mr Undoubtably Spelt Fourty.

OK, teach me all there is to know about the science of gravity.

Perhaps it would be advisable to first learn the gravity of science ?

Well you had an idea HA. First you need to stop the hate and the useless babble. Now get a good book maybe first grade science and do your own home work. You’re the typical person that can hear but you never listen.
