You on the environment

Last week Lauren and I set out into the open city to gauge the public's perception on the earth's current enviro-crisis. This is what it had to say.

Q: The Earth's Crisis - How Bad Is It Really?

It was good to see that generally everyone we spoke to had some idea of the situation's severity. To what degree they understand it is the question. As denizens of the western world, it is clear that a sort of 'out of sight, out of mind' effect is happening.

Q: What Is Your Greatest Concern?

One thing I can say for sure is that people love animals. Other than that, specific concerns vary from person to person. Maybe that's the problem. There are so many concerns that it's difficult to get people focused on a particular action.

Q: Will Humanity Survive?

I found this question to be frustrating. The word, 'adaptable', was thrown around quite a bit. Many seem to have this idea that our 'adaptability' will save us from any oncoming catastrophes. That sounds like a huge cop-out, an excuse to remain stagnant.

Q: What Needs to Change?

The Earth's problems are myriad, and so are the possible solutions. I liked what a couple of these folks had to say about the need to change minds. There are things that need to happen on both a personal and governmental level. So now that we know what needs to be done, it's time we moved away from this theoretical discussion phase, and moved into one of serious action. We need to act.

I like what he guy said about people getting their fat-asses out of cars.

Do people not see that it's not just a petroleum issue? It's a land use issue, a suburbia issue, a safety issue, a resource consumption issue, an existentialist putting yourself in an isolating shell against the world issue, an anti-bike issue, an anti-communities issue, and industrialization issue, a urbanization issue, a mechanization issue, its a psychological issue, its also an economic issue because of all the money we spend on keping our cars alive while people starve and die, just FUCK THOSE THINGS!!

Your mind is recordable media.

FUCKYOU

Fear the coming years, for they will bring famine and drought. Devastating storms and floods as polar ice caps melt. Media outlets pushing the lie that there is a general consensus ostracizing any scientist who speaks out with dissenting evidence.

It makes sense when climate science is a multi-billion dollar industry.

Without a problem a massive constituency would be without a salary.

Your lightbulbs are out of date. now EVERYONE must change EVERY bulb to higher efficency... wish l invested in lightbulbs.

Do you think when the ice age came people were concerned how to stop it? there is no fuckin problem its being blown way out of proportion go waste your money on green appliances and organic honey... if there even is such a thing ahaha
