The future for our species?

I am amazed at how many people are turning their back on the science of climate change. Whether the current situation is man-made or natural the climate will eventually change....the earth's history shows us this and you would think as a selfish species (and we all know we are) we would look to be protecting our existence on this planet as best we can. I can't believe people are so blind-sighted by their current passion, interest, lifestyle, etc, etc that the idea of enabling our species to persist on earth is such a foreign concept. That is really what everything boils down to. The issue isn't whether you believe climate change will wipe out the human species or another large asteroid or a volcanic explosion, the bigger picture is the long-term survival of our species.

So if you really want to make a difference for your kids, your kids' kids and so on, think about how much of a difference you can make for future generations, be that in the form of supporting a carbon tax, adding some solar panels to your roof or whatever measure that you think make a difference. I know such pragmatism doesn't appeal to all people, but you would think that it would appeal to the majority of people since we keep breeding and wanting more and more for our children.    

There are so many things that people believe in that can't be perceived by science or visualised and yet people continue to show their faith in these. Why can't people therefore believe the proven science of human-induced climate change which can clearly be demonstrated and shown to be future of planet earth if we remain on the current track we are following. Do your bit to make a difference and ensure the long-term survival of our species, including our children's children! Pin It
