What Do We Do Now?

Guest Post by Marvin Woll:

When people in the future look back at this current period in time they will see that discovering the existence of global warming was the easy part. The hard part will be changing human behavior. If we are unable to change human behavior then we will not be able to have much affect on global warming.

Most people who are reading this have done many things in their own lives to reduce energy usage and thus carbon output. However, there are many other things we need to do to change the course of global warming events.

Each of us must become advocates in the battle against global warming. We should make a personal commitment that every day we should do at least one activity to spread the word about global warming.

Our congress and executive branch have been extremely neglectful in taking action on global warming. Under proposed legislation in the House and Senate mileage standards are not going to be increased until the years 2015 or 2018. This is not even close to being soon enough! Contact your representative or senator and demand that automobiles get better mileage by 2009 or 2010. If we can put a man on the moon then we can certainly do this.

This country uses 25% of the world's resources. It seems our motto in this country has always been "more is better". We must change that motto to "less is wiser."
