An Inconvenient Truth

Furthering an indictment of society itself, it is with great apology to admit that it took me longer than it should to see perhaps the documentary of our times, An Inconvenient Truth. I reasoned that viewing it at a convenient time would only reinforce what I already suspected but this planet is in worse shape than I imagined. I am no genius or scientist but unless the empirical data presented has been skewed by fanatic fatalists, our fragile ecosystem is inching towards a cataclysmic point of no return. The next hundred years are crucial to our survival. Maybe we should avoid further debate and cut to the chase. I nominate putting fallible humans on the endangered species list. By over-populating the land we trample and polluting the air we breathe, the smartest species on this planet may be absurdly killing itself off. Human beings must leave lighter environmental footprints but we plod roughshod while continuing to tread lightly on only this global issue. We need to treat the planet like an emergency room not a boo-boo to be bandaged. We must unite and act in good conscience for the children who will inherit the earth, while there is something of worth left to inherit.
It may be a fate handed down but I dislike being a member of possibly the last generation that could right our course and fail with everything in the world including itself at stake. There are exponential factors to consider. As the world’s population increases on fixed real estate and more third world countries develop sophisticated economies and infrastructures, there will be more demand placed on the resources that negatively impact an effected environment. This will create a shorter timeline and crunch the numbers for a countdown on planet earth.
I want to leave this planet one day but the worldly truth of the matter is that it seems to be leaving me before I am conveniently ready.

my peeves? cutting down trees, bottled water, and the general lack of ethics in our society. On the whole, there is little regard for others' well-being.

A sage once told me that ethics is what we do when nobody is looking. A goal to live by.

While I am not fatalist and have seen evidence from both sides of the global warming debate equally well debated. With much passion... I think it sucks that society has to be scarred into doing what we should be doing anyway. We are feared into prescriptions, insurance, purchasing products, and most everything somebody wants to make a buck off of. But I believe even the bible says we are to care for this planet. Not rape it for profit. The throw away society we have become is ridiculous. Even education is a series of memorization instead of discovery. Any way. We all need to do what we can in our personal environment and our community. The best thing I think we can do is to teach our children to conserve and think before they buy. The almighty buck is usually the vote that counts in our country. Lets Vote!!!
