  • The Green Enthusiast (758)
    There are many reasons to go green. Some people go green in order to save money, some people go green because its good for the environment, and some people go green because of new laws that require new behavior. In the end, however, we all go green for the same reason, because we have no other choice. The way that we have behaved in the past is simply unsustainable. We cannot continue to burn fossil fuels and pump endless amounts of C02 into the atmosphere and expect no consequences. Global warming is a reality, and we if we do not change our behavior we will create a world that we no longer recognize and that is inhospitable to us and many other forms of life. Fortunately, we are intelligent beings, and we can not only see the impacts of our actions, but we can change them. It will not be easy. Today the world's economies are powered by oil, coal and natural gas. If we took these energy sources away tomorrow, the world would slide into a world-wide depression and billions of people would suffer. But if we plan wisely and act deliberately, we can make the earth a stable and nurturing place on which to live.
