Ever spent time on questioning or examining the large global concerns of global warming? Ever wondered what it is more precisely that makes this a problem? Is it really a problem ?! The various opinions and views are constantly being aired in media. There are many variables that add to this concern and equally many opinions. Where does it all start?
Global warming most certainly is a problem. The poles are melting and the Earth is getting warmer. There are data that indicates that the Earth is now moving towards a warmer period. This fact leaves some to argument that there is no global warming, it is happening anyways. This is true to a certain extent. It is getting warmer, but the way human beings are treating mother Earth is speeding up the process.
To each individual global warming might seem like an issue so powerful that it leaves to believe that there is nothing one person can do. What difference will it make if I change my habits? Well, it might not seem like much. However, if we all make small changes then it will make a significant difference to the environment.
Only a smaller percentage of the Earth's population has the opportunity to make the choice in making a difference. This is part of the problem. A very low percentage of the Earth's population is over consuming, while the rest is struggling. Many are starving and are busy trying to make it through the day. That leaves a fewer of us that has the option of taking action to help the environment. It is our responsibility to others and future generation to become aware and take action. Especially since we are carrying much of the responsibility of the problem.
One great aspect of starting to become aware and making changes, is that most of the changes will also save money. In today's wild economic climate, decreasing expenses should not be a problem but a solution.
Going green is easy. Start at home. For example, go paperless. Receive your bills electronically makes paying bills much easier and can be safer as well. It is easy and does not take much time. The key to saving green is reduce, reuse, and recycle (in that order). Reduce plastic by buying in bulk (less package) which is usually cheaper. Use reusable glass instead of plastic. Recycle your cans. In doing this, you get the money that was yours to be with back from the merchant. Go green, save the environment, and save on your own budget.
