With our natural resources becoming scarce, do you believe individuals do enough on going green?
We hear of corporations going green with rooftop gardens, reducing building temperatures, and recycling and reducing paper consumptions, but what about the individual. Do we in our every day living, do enough to help conserve our communities natural resources?
"No," and "it's not (forgive me!) the right question."
Too few of us are aware of the trouble that the climate change issue is brewing for us. We think that it's far off--but climate change to date has most likely killed some tens of thousands of people and cost several billion dollars. That's not a lot on a global scale, to be sure, but if you are one of the unlucky ones, it's not so easy to dismiss. And it will be much, much worse in our children's and grandchildren's times, if we don't get our act together.
But while we should definitely do what we can on an individual basis, that won't be enough. We need to transform our whole energy economy--not an easy challenge, which is why it's crucial to take the problem seriously NOW.

We should think how to alleviate the ramifications of our atrocious acts. Acts which made the hole in the ozone layer over the Antarctica, this hole permits UV rays to melt the ice glaciers resulting in floods and hurricanes (UV rays are also harmful for us, as these rays lead to skin cancer).
