Thank goodness for preservation/conservation of our natural world
Watching nature documentaries about Yosemite and some of the other amazing wildernesses we’ve managed to keep intact is a pretty good feeling. Admittedly we, for the most part could do a better job recycling, wasting energy, polluting etc. but it’s nice to know there are and have been good folks working to save as much as possible for future generations.
Hell, it was within the last 200 years or so that we realized the impact we as a species were having on our home. Now that we know, it’s just a matter of cutting back on the damage and switching over to sustainable energy as well as food sources. I love bbq. Big time. The livestock industry contributes to pollution in a huge way, it’s not sustainable long term, and we’re unable to feed the world with our current method. If we cut down our livestock industry by say a half or more, it would make a massive difference to the short and long term health of the planet. Of our planet.
Move on from coal and oil. It’s a dirty, war causing dinosaur. Wind and solar power are two quite viable options. I know it doesn’t happen overnight. But it can happen a lot faster if we want it to, as consumers. Eat meat half as much. If everyone does, livestock industry is cut in half, win for the environment. Carpool as much as possible and turn off lights you aren’t using, nother’ win. Just takes a little effort and willpower and our great great great grandchildren can still have a habitable planet to live on. Pretty fair trade I’d say.
