Global warming

Am I the only North American that understands I am the problem. Not the oil companies . Hearing homes and driving automobiles are the cause. Burning fossil fuel I the cause . Grow a pair and realize we are the problem . Pointing fingers at someone else is a cowardly act . I consume over packaged products every day . Burn fossil fuel every day . I cause global warming. Does any one else have the courage to admit something so obvious?

I used to feel this way too

And was very careful to keep my environmental footprint small and eco-shame others who would use take-out cups, drive, etc.

But I would argue now that’s the wrong approach. Big industries and systems are always trying to shift blame to the individual. Without political will, we are fucked.

Just 100 companies have been the source of more than 70% of the world's greenhouse gas emissions since 1988, but yeah, the bloated North American lifestyle is unsustainable and selfish. Think of the future generations, you oversized children.

Can you guess what two of the most sustainable cities in the world are? NYC and Tokyo. Most people live in small apartments, walk and take the train.

You and people like you are the problem for buying into that hyped-up corporate welfare scam as it comes at every other person's expense.

Unless you can remove yourself entirely from modern civilization you’re going to have to deal with the way things are, not how you wish they were. Doing that sounds so easy, but in reality it’s extremely difficult. We live in an industrial society surrounded by all the things built using fossil fuels and maintained using fossil fuels. Trying to rid the planet of plastic is a noble goal but is virtually impossible to do. Even the standard ways of producing electricity use fossil fuels for many of the components that deliver the electricity to the end users. I agree that we need to try to do better, but I’m also a realist.

Industrial pollution is about a billion times that of the pollution from basic living.

... you feel in debt for your birth. Thankfully, I am a Christian, so I know that Jesus loves me, for the bible tells me so.

Humans are habitual creatures and change is not easy for them. Procrastination and weak minds leave us with no change until it's too late. Unless it directly affects people on a massive scale not much will be done. Too busy taking selfies, faking a reality not even there, stuck in the matrix to notice real life going on. Release yourselves and have a look around !

You want to know the real problem with our planet ?
We have no regard for nature which cleans our bodies and our minds and keeps the planet in perfect balance and there are far to many people here now to support life in a healthy manner.
Bottom Line.
